Shawn Spears Is The Next Big Heel Post- MJF



That interview is evident enough, but Spears entire persona and mannerisms since turning heel has been astounding. He's taking in all the attention he's gotten for the chairshot and has turned it into genuine HEEL HEAT. I personally think he should slowly drop the 10 shit because it feels like he's leeching off of his WWE gimmick, but at the same it sort of fits the heel turn. Also digging the "Chairman" shit .

I think he has a ceiling from his long WWE run funk on him. You can't have a top heel of your company where the competition has hours of footage of him jobbing in 3 minute matches to other wwe undercard guys.

Re: Shawn Spears Is The Next Big Heel Post- MJF

I saw the JR interview and he was very well spoken and told a nice story over an obvious betrayal (obvious in the sense we could see it coming the moment Cody said "Good Hand").

It's a good start. One thing I still need to see is him brining good aggression in the ring. We've only see on sample from FFTF and while he did have good heel tactics, when he faces Cody I need to see a certain level of aggression to really drive home how much he hates what Cody said about him.

That's 100% false, plenty of guys have reinvented themselves as top guys after coming off of jobber runs from WWE and other companies. Juice Robinson was jobbing in NXT and he's now thriving in NJPW just to name a single example.

Juice Robinson was a young guy, and had to go over to Japan and start at the bottom.

Shawn Spears is is playing off his WWE history, so he's playing the same guy. In the kayfabe world that guy was a curtain jerking jobber.

If he wanted a fresh start he could have came in as a new character, under a new name, with a new kayfabe history. That would be like Mean Mark Callous or Vinnie Vegas jumping from WCW.

Re: Shawn Spears Is The Next Big Heel Post- MJF

Like I posted in All Out thread I was dissapointed with this interview, I feel that, after all the build up they did about JR interviewing him this was going to be like one of old JR sit down interviews, but this was rather short and uneventful until the reveal at the end, I feel that, while Spears was very well spoken, he didn't came across as a big superstar and that he lacked intensity. Also he wasn't very impressive in the 6 man tag at FFTF, so this "he is gonna be the next great heel"... I just don't see it. They put Tully with him, so it is obvious that they have big plans for him, but I don't know, he hasn't impressed me so far.

I mean, if he genuinely does a good job as a heel, no one's going to care about his past. The guy was such a nobody on the WWE main roster I'd be surprised if casuals even remember what he did as Tye Dillinger.

Its the same thing I say to people who claim people can't buy Jinder or Mcintyre because of their past when these people look and acted like nothing compared to their 3mb past. If you're good enough at your current job, no one's gonna care what you did a few years ago.

Oh Spears is becoming better. Better on mic, and his heelish mannerisms are on point. So far very impressed!
