Re: What happened to Santino Marella?

And it tends to hurt OTHER wrestlers' credibility because it basically says that the only way you can beat Santino is if he screws himself over.

Imo, The Cobra is a legit finisher, but here, Santino uses the Cobra, yet because he doesn't have the silly sock, he doesn't put his full effort into it and pretends as if the sock makes his finisher stronger.
Sometimes his gimmicky actions go over big time with the WWE audience and sometimes it doesn't. Like at EC, people were going crazy for Santino, it was insane, and WWE milked the hell out of it. These reactions were literally ridiculous. I see your point thou.

KARLA LOPEZ, THE HOTTEST MODEL/ACTRESS ALIVE. Sheamus, Swagger, Wade, Dixie, Cesaro, Sami, DB, RKO, Drew, Del Rio, Cody, Punk, AJ LEE, Athena, Jasmin Areebi, Becky / (SIG CRED: Abrown/A$AP/Sol Katti) CHAMPviaDQ = Great GFX.
