The feeling I got when watching his 205 Live match was there were communication issues between the two and neither of them seemed to know what the other one was doing or about to do). Main Event also proves that 205 Live should probably be done before SmackDown and not after.
Yeah I've been meaning to catch an episode as I enjoyed his work in the CWC. I'm hoping they get him back on 205 Live pretty soon as I think he can be a big player in the CW division.

Okada was nowhere even close to being a star back then, I don't think anyone could have predicted how great he would become.

I know exactly how he went, I'm laughing at the comparison. TNA mistreated him badly and gave him a shithouse gimmick while WWE pulled Metalik off TV to further adjust to the WWE style because he botched major spots on his debut.

No comparisons there.

Metalik also can't speak English that well. WWE learned their lesson from the original Sin Cara of pushing Mexican stars when they haven't adjusted to WWE styles.

Re: Meltzer: Use of Gran Metalik is as bad as Okada in TNA under Russo, no question.

I think the main reason was that he couldn't speak english and the couple of botched he had in his 205 live debut. Still thinking he will be a key player in the division if they let him loose
