Re: Santana Garrett Signs With WWE
I'm happy for her, always liked her and that's not just because she's attractive. Santana always has had star appeal, sex appeal and she's usually easy to get over, but it's the kind of appeals that you have to market to the audience in a particular way as she's a very white hat, smiling and confident babyface type that gives off positive energy.
It could be done right, but with WWE I have my doubts because their track record of writing/handling babyfaces haven't gone so well. Few Faces on the women's NXT roster are super over right now and that's mainly due to the creative dept.
Anyways, Santana's fundamentals are usually crisp, and her work is very American, old schoolish fare. Beyond this, she isn't an airblazing daredevil like Io or a KLR, or a mat wizard like Shayna but at best she can hang with most girls; her past matches with Tessa Blanchard, Deonna Purrazzo, Jordynne Grace, etc. certainly prove that. Such is why should be comfortable on NXT, where the workrate is higher than main. But really, Santana is the kind of wrestler that's tailor made for main roster WWE style work.
If she's booked right, she's a high mid-carder for sure. I wouldn't say top rung material though, and plus she's in major crowded company.
