Re: Aiden English is not a side show
I liked his man's man gimmick he had for a short while. It didn't last and he was a jobber but he had just a mustache, suspenders and talked like he was right out of a 30's mob. It was awesome. I've always been a fan of his and I'm glad they repackaged him. This gimmick is a lot of fun and will serve the purpose of getting a really talented worker noticed and onto the main roster. He's obviously going to have to move away from it eventually, but it's fine for now. I can name a bunch of top stars who entered with most stupid gimmick in the world (Triple H, Cena, Edge to name a few) and ended up being top talents once they got over and transitioned into a more serious role. Sometimes the horrible gimmick that stands out route is the best way to go. It's why I'm not worried about Fandango or Sandow. Both are talented and young. English is the same. This will serve as his jumping off point and he's got all the tools to be a main roster player.
