Except Balor was in NXT, and afaik James Ellsworth never was.
Though true be told, I'm not sure why Ellsworth is on Smackdown, OR has a T-shirt. I'd have though the WWE learned from WCW's mistakes.
You are definitely right, I was trying to make a joke there. The NXT edition is pretty perfect for the most part. Maybe an Asuka item would be nice since she's the queen of NXT now.
As for Ellsworth, I actually like the guy and his work a lot, and I think what SD has done with him is great, and even better than the segments on Raw now. In fact I was looking forward to his match with Styles more than the Goldberg return.
He really is there just for a fun segment, and was never going to win the title. He has actually been wrestling for 14 years, and done a ton of work on his own promotion as well. I mean it's not like WWE is the best judge of athletics, and with the acting and expressions Ellsworth has in the ring, I feel he is more entertaining than half the roster. My opinion of course.
