Thoughts on El Generico signing?
 
What do you guys think the WWE will do with him? Keep the same gimmick or change it entirely?

Personally, I can't see him wrestling without the mask.

it's Wrestlemania Season.. arguably the biggest and most historic of all-time..

that being said, it's going to be a long while before Generico shows up on WWE programming that matters (RAW/SD)

as for what they gonna do with him.. not really certain but "lucha" gimmicks do not make it in the WWE

so "El Generico" is definitely gone

They could sell hundreds of those masks at every show. He has the potential to be more marketable than Mysterio is at this point in his career.

Can't wait to see what the hype is about.

like above they can sell the masks, and in the other thread someone mentioned a canadian being a lucha might be offensive, he could just have his story as idolizing the lucha style just put that out there, then it done. now for a new name since wwe will change it i said in the other thread just call him generico and leave the el off, cause wwe can sell jericho but not chris jericho. for a story they could put him with rey and sin cara, or since del rio is a face now they could have a story where del rio as a face wants to make a fan into the perfect luchador and generico could be the guy he pics maybe even tell fans to wear masks and he will pick the best mask and interview him in the ring. del rio could be like we need a name i dont want to be generic and gen yells generico or something along those lines just a silly enough way the crowd gets a giggle and del rio like sure generico! then ricardo and say it like hes saying gooooooooooooooal. just to get that name over. then he could do tag matches with del rio and some singles vs low card heels. that would be enough to get him over with the crowd before he has his true own story and tag matches are a good way to get used to being in the wwe along with fighting the jobber heels.

He is meant for PG programming so it was only a matter of time really. I could see him getting popular with kids and stuff.

I am a huge Generico fan, so I just hope they don't mess him up or change him too much.

Yeah he wil be popular, but without a light-heavyweight title, where the hell will he end up?

WWE plays too safe these days because they can afford to, I fear the safe play will kill this guy.

As someone above says, show a promo where an unseen man talks (possibly in a slightly foreign accent but not explicitly Mexican) about how much he admires the Lucahadore style, how he wanted to be fantastic, and became El Fantastico, or El Amazingo or whatever, basically the same mask and it will work. Generico will make it work.

Knowing WWE they'll probably strip him of his gimmick and give him some generic name like Ryan Smithers or something and have him debut that way.
