It has been few weeks since the last time I posted a blog of the week so I thought it was time to post another and it just so happened that I found one that had to do with NXT. As everyone is aware be now former WWE superstars had begun making their way to NXT a few months back and many more would becoming, but to this point it really has been one that has shown up. Back in February, "The Man Beast" Rhyno returned to the WWE but he didn't return on the Main roster he returned to WWE down in NXT. At first many thought it was just going to be a one shot deal, but those people were wrong Rhyno was here to stay.
Now a few months in to his NXT tenure and I can honestly say that Rhyno has become a very valuable member of the roster and that bringing him in was a smart move for the WWE. Rhyno fits the definition of a world traveled wrestler to a tee as he has been a part of companies all over the world and seen the world over. Rhyno has been a part of companies like ECW, BCW, WWE, TNA, HOH, CWA (Europe), and many others. However, now Rhyno is trying to reawaken his career and is doing a great job of it as a part of the hottest brand in wrestling NXT. Now for a little background on the situation I go to an excerpt from the post:
"Back in February Terry 'Rhyno' Gerin returned to WWE. He had previously been employed by the company from March 2001, after the closure of ECW, to 2005, when he was released following an altercation with his wife at the after party of WrestleMania 21. During his initial WWE run he was firmly a mid-card act, albeit one who was protected more than most and received more opportunities to outshine his peers. Since his return Rhyno has been cast in an entirely different role, that of the resident veteran of NXT, the popular developmental brand that is edging further away from its developmental remit by the day.
Putting Rhyno in NXT has been a good move. It makes NXT seem important and legitimises it's claim at being a hot brand by having a guy who's been around for so long wanting to wrestle and be champion there. It gives the younger guys someone experienced to work with and learn from. And it's provided Steve Corino's former 'Rookie Monster' with a deserved career renaissance."
