#SGQ: The Woke Up Like Dee Dee Edition

It was only a matter of time.

If you're looking for a review of NXT TakeOver: Unstoppable, you're gonna have to wait for it a little while longer, because this is not that. For the uninitiated, every now and then in Smark Gilas-Pilipinas, we make comments on wrestlers' appearances which we hashtag #SGQ—you know, after the men's magazine. #SGQ encompasses both the good and the bad looks, and it was only a matter of time until we brought it here to Smark Henry.

For our very first SH edition, however, we'll focus on the bad.

Today, on Unstoppable, we had ourselves an NXT Tag Team Championship match. Presenting, ladies and gentlemen, your champions:

Yeah, that's a manbun on Murphy, which is normal (now, at least)... but those are pigtails on Blake. Pigtails. On. Blake. For reference:

We're not out here to impose any heteronormative standards on anyone, because JBL knows that's a can of worms we don't really want to open. Simply put, however: this looks stupid. It doesn't even work, not as well as it does with dreads, like Kofi tends to do. Blake, you're a Caucasian man with wavy blond hair. Pick one: you either rock the pigtails and you shave the beard, or wear it normally and keep your facial hair. This, along with the red and black tights they got going on for this show, makes it look like an uncomfortably awkward and half-assed Harley Quinn cosplay.

You should all take back what you were saying about Sheamus's mohawk and beard braids and redirect them toward the Dubstep Cowboys. If they aren't killing you via epileptic seizure during their entrance or ignoring "No Means No," they're out here making you cringe.

What did you think of Blake and Murphy's hair? Or any of the other looks the guys and gals wore for Unstoppable? Let us know in the comments.
