On this past weeks episode of AEW Dynamite, we saw Jon Moxley return to the ring for the first match after losing the AEW World Championship. His opponent was 29 year old powerhouse Nick Comoroto, who lasted four minutes with Moxley before being choked out.
That might not sound like a star making performance, but between his caveman looks and a strong showing against one of the best in the world? Fans are calling for more of Comoroto.
Nick Comoroto Has A Timeless Look And Solid Skills
Probably the main reason fans instantly latched onto Comoroto was his unique look. He looks like an defrosted caveman turned wrestler, or like someone who would have faced All Japan Pro Wrestling legend Giant Baba in a six man tag team match in the late 80’s. AEW has something big with him, and they knew it by having him have a competitive match with Jon Moxley.
The part that gets me, is that he did not look out of place alongside Moxley despite having much less experience. Comoroto only has about seven years experience, with 128 matches on record. He’s been through the WWE Performance Center, and now trains with QT Marshall at the Monster Factory in Georgia.
A Big Missed Chance By WWE
During his time in the WWE Performance Center, where he came in alongside Dexter Lumis & Cameron Grimes, Comoroto never made it to TV. He worked the Florida House Show loop, facing men like Ridge Holland, Mace, Bronson Reed, Chris Hero and more. Comoroto was one of many names cut in 2020 as a cost cutting measure by WWE.
That is a move that could come back to haunt WWE, especially if AEW runs with Comoroto as a star. It’s rare to see powerhouses that are this good when they’re so young. As previously mentioned, Comoroto is only 29, he just looks ancient. Even if AEW pairs him with Jurassic Express and gives him the gimmick of ‘Caveman Comoroto’, we can expect him to be a star in the coming years.
