It'll probably only ever be a midcard to lowcard gimmick, but that's okay as long as he can make something out of it. Like you, I'm reserving judgment until I've seen it on TV for a month or two.
They should've at least tried to debut him post-NXT Redemption on RAW/Smackdown with the Let's Get Weird/Dirty Curty gimmick he was working with. The brief transition from that to Fandago that we saw on current NXT (in his tag team match with Michael McGuillicutty where he wouldn't stop randomly dancing) was interesting, but I don't know how it will all translate when he finally wrestles as Fandango. Rooting for him either way though.

Re: "FUN... DUN... GO"

so I guess they are going the Damien Sandow route and have him show up for a couple weeks without actually fighting. The only difference is Sandow actually has a pretty decent character

I was pretty annoyed with the promos but now he has actually shown up I just can't wait for his gimmick to fail so he can get fired. The way he spoke just sounded like he was trying to force that rediculously fake accsent

I'm the King, I'm the King

I'm the new King of Memphis, Tennessee!

I knocked Lawler out last week and I'm gunna knock him out again!

If you do it right to the point fans at ringside are all "Man even I want to kick this guy's ass now!" then they'll certainly cheer the guy who finally does do it.
This would be interesting.. Do you think they would let a wrestler stalk a diva in this day in age? I personally doubt it.

Re: "FUN... DUN... GO"

Maybe he'll surprise me but this gimmick looks really lame. I do like him as a razon ramon type slimy dude though.

Re: "FUN... DUN... GO"

That backstage segment was a bright spot in an otherwise dull show. I guess they might hold him off until after WM, it's a long time but I wouldn't be surprised given what happened to Brodus Clay.

Really enjoyed his segment on SD tonight, I always liked Curtis and it should be interesting seeing this character play out

Try being informed instead of just opinionated.

Most homophobes are secretly gay. However, most arachnophobes are not secretly spiders.

Fandango is simply a vessel for Curtis' "creepy" gimmick. Remember when Goldust debuted and Vince would always label him as "bizzare"? Same thing applies here. I'm digging the creativity. Creepy Johnny Curtis was missing something to define his character and this works just fine.
