absolutely agree with you, time will tell for sure, but as an initial statement and gimmick he looks like a huge huge star in the making, and this is massively down to being repackaged.

Ryback isn't bad on the mic and it never affected his overness if you believe he is. I really didn't understand why Vickie was supposedly being brought in as his mouthpiece but if you pay attention, you realize that she isn't, really. She's going to be used as his handler for a big feud with Triple H where he'll (Ryback) be on the side of Vince/Vickie. That's the primary reason for the "pairing" I think.

Anyway, no. Mouthpieces should be used where they're necessary because some guys (Brock is an example), will never be good on the mic no matter how long they spend in development.

If you're charismatic, it doesn't matter that you suck on the mic though (Krispen Wah), you'll get over anyway.

I think WWE just needs to give wrestlers more freedom to work on their character, also giving guys gimmicks helps a lot with mic skills as you can easily make relatable references, i.e I.R.S.

If people just can't talk then stick them with a manager or make their gimmick revolved around other aspects of wrestling to showcase them in the best possible light.

They also really need to stop with scripted promos and repackaging top talent from the indy's that have been working on their character for several years. Look at a guy like El Generico who I think could have been a solid comedy baby face mid carder with that gimmick, now he is Sami Zayn, unmasked and no real gimmick. Obviously some guys need to be repackaged in order to succeed, look at The Rock and Austin, but changing names and gimmicks from talent that they acquire seems asinine to me, when presumably they have brought in these talents because of their current gimmicks.

Absolutely not.

As long as you're over and can go in the ring, everything else is irrelevant.

He's one of the best repackaged talents today I seen today. Simple not dramatic and straight to the point.

WWE just needs to give someone the right gimmick and storylines...

Only people who care about mic skills are smarks like us...and even then it's only a certain fraction that really get dick-hard over mic skills.

Just look at Randy Orton, over as fuck with smarks, and the kids and everyone in between...his storyline with HHH really helped too.

Personally I feel if a wrestler is not good on the mic he will never make it big. For example Kofi Kingston is a great in ring performer but he will forever be delegated to midcard status cuz lets face it, he sucks on the mic. Same with Ryback although he is improving VERY slowly.

On the other hand, guys who weren't THAT great in the ring, Miz at one point, but were great on the mic still got a big push. Since then though Miz has improved in the ring and still is a great worker but creative has nothing for him to do so...who knows.

Lets be honest, how much would developmental really help a guy on the mic. If you see they are struggling on the mic, take them off air, send them to a month or so of acting/improv lessons. It would work wonders, i assure you.

Give a manager to the following guys and they'd be money

Shelton Benjamin w/ Jim Cornette
John Morrison w/ Jimmy Hart
Mason Ryan w/ William Regal
Paul Burchill w/ William Regal
Drew McIntyre w/ William Regal
