Re: Sandow and Fandango: Heel gimmicks that aren't working
Sandow's problem isn't his gimmick, it's his weak booking. His gimmick is fine imo.
Fandango is a flash in the pan who isn't as over as people think he is. His gimmick and theme song especially are over, yet nobody really gives a shit about the guy.
And even those aren't nearly as over as they were initially. Of course, those were over because WWE ran what. . .like a hundred Fandango ads before debuting him? Then they kick off his debut match with a WIN OVER CHRIS JERICHO AT WRESTLEMANIA. He barely had to do anything to "get over" because WWE did it all for him. Then the more people saw him, the less over he was. Now he comes out to a sparse reaction that stop the moment his music stops.
Rather than continue to try to force a square peg into a round hole, I'd hope WWE would spend the efforts in getting over a wrestler who at least has more than below average to average potential. They often let more talented guys (Cesaro) rot while pushing guys with far less potential for months and months while they get increasinly less popular or plateau in popularity.
WWE has totally lost its balls. We now have unathletic weaklings with douchey personalities at the top of the show who are embarrassingly considered all time greats by some of the current fanbase.
WWE has officially become Revenge of the Nerds Weekly. We're in the most unmanly, pussified, beta male dominated era in WWE history.
