Default My problem with Fandango...

Other than the fact that it's a ridiculous gimmick I can't see who the WWE is catering to. Perhaps the mothers of the children who are obviously there to see John Cena? Johnny Curtis has talent, and I guess they just want to see what he can do with this role. Honestly, I think he can pull it off, but can he ever recover from a gimmick like this? This is the main issue I have with this. How well will Johnny pull this off, and if he will ever be able to mature past this character? Val Venis got stuck with a horrible gimmick that he could never really break from. Venis was no legend, but he had potential, and it was wasted to a cheap Attitude Era, porn star gimmick.

Fandango certainly is not a porn star gimmick, but the sexual vibe is definitely there. I can't imagine people tuning in to watch this Fandango ever. I don't want to call this gimmick a failure because we haven't had it go on it's own yet. Curtis is talented, and I think will act this role accordingly. I just hope the WWE doesn't allow him to keep this act very long. Changing it to soon is never a strong idea, but gradually toning his character down sounds like a more logical move. Part of me just can't see this gimmick working with today's WWE crowd. It probably would, or could have had more success 15-20 years ago though. I guess we will just have to wait, and see.

My brother, who hates wrestling now that he's a teenager, came home and the first thing he saw on t.v was fandango's groinal area....he asked if i was gay.

Default Re: My problem with Fandango...

this Fandango is what i like and i'm more into...a ladies man.


would be funny if he ask married women for a dance, because he's a ladies man and get beat up by some mob.

regarding Val Venis, he's a great star but WWE doesn't have any direction for him...he's pretty over.

This is amusing. A character is yet to debut but someone's already having gripes over the character. ny

This is no Brodus Clay who was portrayed as a monster then ended up debuting as the complete opposite. At least let's see how things pan out before complaining. Let him die before burying him.

The title of the thread should be 'My problem'S' with Fandango' btw.

i haven't seen Brodus Clay when he was in NXT but from what i hear Brodus Clay is the future talent...when Brodus Clay came out dancing instead of being that big monster is dead end for him.

Seconded.

I imagine the only reason he hasn't debuted is because Fandango's the dancer the WWE deserves, but not the one it needs right now. And so we'll wait for him, because he can take it, because he's not a dancer... he's a silent guardian... a watchful protector... Johnny Curtis.
