Can another wrestler be given the rapping gimmick?

I really liked when Cena did it. It takes a lot of talent to pull it off but when done right it just sounds great/edgy.

I'm a huge fan of rap but for people that aren't it just sounds less generic than a regular promo and the play on words makes it not only interesting but consistently fresh.

Re: Can another wrestler be given the rapping gimmick?

I actually thought about a gimmick but that wouldnt fit this pg era:
Think about snoopy dogg style gimmick, you know always stoned and act like a pimp every week change his vallet (can also be use to intreduce us new divas).
This can be pretty cool



Thanks to The Fourth Wall for the awesome sig!

Of course it could if the person could actually spit a bar and WWE doesn't treat it like a joke.

:truth

If they could pull it off correctly, I'd be all for it. But no matter who it is or how good they are at rapping they'll always be compared to Cena.

If the wrestler can actually rap, then yes.

R-Truth already has the rap gimmick, JTG is another candidate that would do well the rap gimmick, it would fit well with him. The whole rapping gimmick could be a good thing but only if represented by the right person and not booked in a comical and weak fashion.

Re: Can another wrestler be given the rapping gimmick?

No. The reason why John Cena's Dr. of Thuganomics gimmick worked out so well was because it was edgy and Paul Heyman was booking the character on Smackdown back in 2003 with Cena writing his own raps.

In today's WWE product full of shitty Hollywood writers and wrestlers having to have promos scripted for them, I can't see a rapper gimmick being that successful. They tried to do a rapper gimmick with Slam Master J (Jesse) but it failed miserably.
