Milwaukee native Eric Bugenhagen made an impression on me from the moment he ran out on the NXT stage and belted out a huge King Diamond-like scream. Take a look:


This is how you make an impression before even wrestling. I lost it when the crowd"Encore!" "Encore!" and he gave them what they needed. During the match, Bugenhagen offered some innovative offense in the form of a air-guitaring abdominal stretch:

Sadly, Bugenhagen was no match for Drew Gulak and lost via tapout. But he made his mark on the WWE NXT crowd, to the point that after the match, they demanded another encore and he had to give them what they wanted.
