You know why, pal. He's swiss

These Heyman guys aren't going to go far. I think Paul's vision is just he wants more wrestling-based product. They are going over here and there, but they won't win shit. And by that I mean THE SHIT, the Universal Championship. Maybe it's his way of building midcard, who knows really. I agree in a sense that I don't want to see them going over some of the big names, but this is how he can build that IC championship prestige. At least he thinks he can.

We already have Ricochet. Now we have two Ricochets. It’ll never end.

Yeah, theyíre legitimately about the same exact dude. Ali is almost in that camp, too, but some of his video packages added some character. Just another 180 lb. dude with no character that has the same moveset as every other 205 guy.

Yet, guys like Rusev and EC3 canít even get on tv. Andrade is an afterthought, and Joe gets jobbed out incessantly. Murphy who could have been interesting and had some momentum building is likely to just be forgotten about again, too. Itís so crazy that a company with the depth of talent they have, canít book anyone correctly.
The only person currently being booked well is Bray, and thatís probably only because he has so much control over his character. Booking is going to get him again very soon, too.

He’s literally just a normal guy who does random flips to garner Pavlovian pops from the hardcore geek crowds.

This is why wrestling is dead
Indeed...Cedric Alexander. Why not John Smith. Or Mike Williams. Or Bob Roberts. Cedric has a generic name and no disceranble character.

Exactly, and Bobby Roode is stuck in another throwaway tag team never getting a chance to do anything as a singles wrestler, dude is freaking phenomenal on the mic. Yet Cedric is getting main events every other week and defeating top names and he can't cut a promo for shit and as others have said is even worse than Ricochet on the mic.

Guys with mic skills and charisma are screwed in wwe in this day and age for some reason.

I mean he got this big moment in the main event of Raw where he dove off the side of the tron, he's beaten some of the top guys on Raw, now tonight he beat Styles in the main event.

I just don't understand this at all, if charisma and personality doesn't matter anymore which is evident with Cedric getting pushed, why can't Cesaro get this kind of push?
This isn't a push. A push that ends in the us championship isn't a push. He beat AJ so he can face him at COC.

The next generation of WWE stars is tragic.

Dream is going to walk it to the top if this is the best they have.
