His early TNA shit and his 2011 run was some of the best wrestling TV I've ever seen. Truth should have been a massive star in this business and its a shame that no promoter gave him a push, especially McMahon. Even though he's almost 50, their is still time for him to get an opportunity, he's in phenomenal shape still and is about as red hot as you can get in 2019 WWE

I'm kind of amazed you're not crediting Jinder with those views. Have you already jumped off that gimmick? That didn't last long.
Bray got buzz for like 2 weeks, no one cares anymore.

You could not live with your own failure. Where did that bring you? Back to me.

Not true, but regardless, take the deadest act on the roster. Any midcarder has more real "buzz" than Truth, because everybody knows that Truth is never going to amount to anything serious. They're just comedy segments, he has no hope of ever amounting to anything. You're confusing people watching comedy with caring about Truth.

What gimmick? Truth, and to a lesser extent Jinder, are being given a turd sandwich and they've turned it into the only watchable part of the show.

Bray is losing buzz. It peaked at the reveal of the fiend. He needs to just redebut now and be done with it. Truth is generating more interest.

The gimmick of you actually liking Jinder Mahal, despite it coming out of nowhere. I saw through it instantly.

He's not generating more interest. Nobody is "interested" in this shit. It's just dumb shit that they laugh at. Show me a poll where 80% of people want to see Truth challenge Seth Rollins for the Universal Championship, rather than anybody else in the company, and fine, I'll admit that it's buzz. I'm not gonna call stupid, easily digestible retarded comedy "buzz". Social media numbers mean nothing. Jon Moxley has a promo in New Japan that has nearly 3 and a half million views, which is more than the entire audience of Raw, and more than anything Truth has done, and New Japan is not suddenly the #1 company, nor is Moxley the #1 star in wrestling. They're just arbitrary numbers, they don't translate to facts.

I do agree that Bray needs to finally get in the ring, though, which he won't. He will start losing buzz in another month when he's still not wrestling.

I still long for the Summer of Shanti 2.0, but sadly it's an unrealistic dream. WWE would kill for the kind of numbers Jinder was giving them during JinderFest '17, in hindsight the Summer of Shanti was a success. Obviously the internet fans tried to tear him down, but as we all know, true legends are never appreciated in their time. Jinder Mahal's 2017 title run will go down in legend as an underappreciated gem which gains cult status down the road, similar to The Shawshank Redemption or Scarface, neither of which were appreciated in their time.

Moxley is probably the hottest star in pro wrestling right now. I don't see anybody in WWE who is creating any real buzz at all, like Becky late last year or Kofi leading into Mania. The only person who comes close is Truth.

I wouldn't get excited about it. He will squash a few jobbers then be fed to Roman or Seth, then he's done. He'll be dancing within a year.

Really playing it up for the camera on that one.

Scarface sucks, for the record. Shawshank is amazing, though.

As much as I'd like to believe that, I don't think you can be the hottest star in wrestling outside of WWE. It's a monopoly and it's not going anywhere. People are interested to see his interviews where he bashes WWE, and to see how he performs outside of the shackles of WWE. Once again, though, the common denominator is WWE. The interest he's garnering is all about WWE. How he left, how he's different from when he was there, the problems that exist in that company. There won't be that buzz there in 2 months. Hell, I think it's died down already.

I know. I didn't say I was excited about it, but the Funhouse gimmick is stupid and it isn't going anywhere. I want to see how this gimmick at least translates to the ring.

Truth is a novelty act, nothing more. This 24/7 shit won't last and then he'll go back to being nothing.

When Truth is the most searched wrestler on the internet, sells more merch than anyone else on the roster and main events Wrestlemania, then he'll be bigger than Becky. Until then, your "reality" is a pipe dream.

Lynch fanboys are salty that R Truth has been more entertaining in the last couple weeks than she has ever been.
