How many gunshot wounds does it take to buy a near-fall?

And I pretty much did take a break from it, by completely ignoring last weeks SmackDown and tonight's RAW and some of you may of noticed I haven't posted in about a week. However, after just now checking out Sandow's debut on YouTube (I was very anticipated for his debut anyway and I loved his promo vignettes) I must say I really like his character. It's unique, it's fresh, it's eye-catching and I'm intrigued to where WWE will take it. His gimmick of hating on alot of the things in modern society, I like, and his praise for things of the past gives him a nostalgic feel about him that I also like. Just the little things I noticed, such as the way he holds the mic, his tone of voice, and the way he addresses the crowd - was great - and it will really help him stand out amongst the bland roster in the WWE today. Disappointing that he didn't wrestle, as I want to see what he's like in the ring, but I'm very much into his character so far.
A squash match isn't going to tell you anything, anyway. Just watch some FCW on Youtube if you're interested in his ring work. I haven't really given his ring work much of a look, because I don't care, but yeah, I'm sold already, his character's great and he's doing some good stuff on the mic. He's gotta go back to the New World Symphony, though. Much as I have an appreciation for the meaning of the song, being a Christian, Hallelujah just is not meant for wrestling music. At all. And maybe that was the whole idea, to make him that different, but I just don't like that. NWS is perfectly fitting for this character and has a lot of impact and gives you a better impression of him.

That's got to be fixed, and if they can change the Corre's theme in 70 different variations and change Tensai's after like 3 weeks, they can certainly do this for the good of his character.
