The comedy started immediately thereafter, with him just being a bumbling idiot. He's been a goofball for years, this wasn't a random change like Tensai where he just becomes a comedy babyface out of nowhere.
I think the comedy potential was hinted at... Vince was explaining the no-harm agreement where if Santino got destroyed, he couldn't sue the WWE. Vince stopped himself, and goes "before I go any further, first of all do you understand English?".

Santino goes "Si, si", which got a legit chuckle from JR or whomever was on commentary.

He also had some crazy red / orange shoes on that Vince made fun of.

But yeah, he was NOWHERE NEAR the comedy idiot he became shortly thereafter.

Santino is a great worker and he knows and plays his character so well. It's the reason why he is always so damn over.

I don't think his gimmick is bad at all. The guy is one of the best damn comedy wrestlers of all time and you can tell he enjoys what he does. Not everyone has to be a serious wrestler, you know. I rather be the guy who does comedy and gets his ass kicked but is over as fuck than the guy who walks to the ring all serious, wrestles al serious but no one can bother to give a fuck. Yeah, I rather be a Santino than a Wade Barrett.

Comedy characters have always been, and likely always will be, a staple in professional wrestling. Instead of complaining, perhaps we should be happy that the three main comedy characters (Santino, Clay, Ryder) are all very capable performers. We've come a long way from the days when the comedy characters had basically no wrestling skill.

Santino has made he most of his time in WWE. I am sure he has been told in no uncertain terms it is his job to entertain people and to help the low to mid card guys the WWE wants to advance further. Sometimes storylines need to be serious but sometimes there is a need for laughs and that is where Santino shines.

He's great, has boatloads of charisma, presence and comedic timing along with being a quality wrestler. And he uses that to the fullest to connect with the audiences and make fans laugh. Nothing went wrong, he's probably the best comedy character WWE ever had.

Here's why Santino is a GOAT comedy character. Not only can he be an awesome babyface that makes you laugh but as a heel he can make you laugh and hate him at the same time! His little run with Maria was just heel Santino at his best.

He may not be as funny nowadays but I personally thought his segments with Jericho, Lawler, and Stone Cold were HILARIOUS when he was a heel early on. So it's hard to regret the comedy route, but it is somewhat disappointing that a guy who had that in ring potential will never rise above this level.
