Topic/Subject: Today, I will be showing a match that involves a beautiful man.
Wrestler: “Beautiful” Wesley Blake (Blake).
Background Information: Wesley Blake is billed from San Antonio, Texas. He is trained by Dory Funk Jr.
He wanted to be a wrestler since the age of 3. He eventually became a student of Dory Funk Jr.’s wrestling school, the Funking Conservatory (FC), appearing on the school’s !Bang! TV show under his real name, Cory Weston.
Throughout his FC career, he became a FC European Champion, a FC Florida Heavyweight Champion, and a FC Heavyweight Champion. He continued to wrestle for FC until he signed a contract with WWE.
He joined WWE’s NXT roster in 2013 and made his first match appearance on October 11, facing and losing to Jason Jordan with the ring name, Wesley Blake.
For the remainder of the 2013 year, he would suffer consecutive losses in singles and tag team matches and it continued in the summer of 2014 while playing a cowboy character.
In August 2014, he abandoned the cowboy character and formed a tag team with Buddy Murphy. On August 14, 2014, on an episode of NXT, he and Buddy Murphy were defeated in the first round of a number one contender tag team tournament by The Lucha Dragons.
For the rest of 2014, he and Buddy Murphy lost multiple matches to teams such as The Lucha Dragons and The Vaudevillains.
In October 2014, he and Buddy Murphy were involved in a tag team battle royal to determine the number one contenders to the NXT Tag Team Championship, but he and Buddy Murphy were eliminated from the match by The Ascension.
On January 21, 2015, on an episode of NXT, he and Buddy Murphy scored their first ever televised victory by defeating The Vaudevillains.
On January 31, 2015, at a NXT house show, they were billed without their first names. They then started a feud with Enzo Amore and Colin Cassady where Alexa Bliss eventually joined them.
After feuding with Enzo Amore and Colin Cassady, they began to feud with The Vaudevillains. After feuding with The Vaudevillains, he and Murphy began a losing streak from summer 2015 to summer 2016.
Eventually, the losing streak ended up having Alexa Bliss leave the group where both men began to team up once in a while, but he and Murphy still lost.
He and Buddy Murphy then went their seperate ways and they feuded with each other for a little bit before fully going into their singles careers.
Throughout his NXT career, he became a NXT Tag Team Champion. He still competes in NXT to this day.
My Thoughts: Wesley Blake is an individual that has potential to be something in NXT. He has a good look, he has a presence about him in and outside of the ring, he has a good character, good charisma, and he’s good in the ring. Beautiful!
Video: This video contains a match between Wesley Blake and Shinsuke Nakamura at Wrestlemania Axxess on April 3, 2016.
My Thoughts: This was a good match that showcased Wesley Blake’s character and charisma in the ring.
The way he interacted with Shinsuke Nakamura was hiliarious especially the part where he blew a kiss to Shinsuke Nakamura as he grabbed the kiss, threw it in the ground, stomped on it, and tell him to bring it as Wesley Blake went nuts was hilarious. That was some entertaining stuff there.
Also, the way he worked on Shinsuke Nakamura’s face throughout the match was good in-ring psychology with the poke in the eyes, the stomps to the face, and the forearm smashes to his head. Even though Wesley Blake lost this match, he looked good in defeat and he gave Shinsuke Nakamura a beating in this match so it was all fine and good.
Good match that showcase his character and charisma despite losing.
I feel like Wesley Blake has potential of being a somebody in NXT, but it’s only a matter of what NXT does with him in order to make that work for him. He has this beautiful character that could work for him, but we need to see more of him to see what he can do with it. Hopefully NXT will have something for him soon, but until then, beautiful!
After watching the video, give me your thoughts on the video or the wrestler himself. Thank you.
