With his good look, good character, good charisma, and good in-ring ability, this man could have gone wild in NXT and possibly WWE if given the chance.

My Thoughts: Travis Tyler is an interesting individual. The man has a good look, a presence about him in and outside of the ring, he has a good character, good charisma, and he’s a good wrestler in the ring. Yea Yea Yea Oh!

Video: This video contains a promo presentation by Travis Tyler on November 19, 2013.

My Thoughts: This was a good promo from Travis Tyler here as he got to showcase his character and charisma here.

He talked about himself and his name if it’s truly his name as this was the Manifesto of Selfish Behavior. He then talked about selfish people and how selfish people are making people out of jobs even though he worked hard for them. He then talked about Troy McClain who is one of those selfish people that try to bring people down with his five steps, but Travis Tyler has one step for him and that is to beat him up as he welcomed Troy McClain to Jungle Troy as he shouts to end the promo presentation.

This was a good display of Travis Tyler’s character and charisma here as he talked about who he is, the opponent he’s feuding with, and why he is feuding with his opponent which hits all of the points in a promo in wrestling. He not only hit the right points in the promo, but he also did it with the character he’s playing as which made it believable. Plus, the “Wild Man” character was very interesting as well as he displayed that in the end of his promo which showed that he may be wild, but he is tough than everyone else. Good performance from Travis Tyler in this promo presentation.

Good promo presentation from Travis Tyler here as he got to show his character and charisma in an effective manner.

It’s a shame that WWE didn’t use him well as he did a lot of potential. Luckily, he’s doing well in the independent circuit and he has improved a lot since then so I wish him nothing, but the best. Yea Yea Yea Oh!

After watching the video, give me your thoughts on the video or the wrestler himself. Thank you.
