Oh come on. Anytime someone gets that much of an increase in TV time and starts being booked as competitive against bigger names, that's called a push. Going from lower card to sharing screen time with Rollins and Austin is a push. This is the most literal definition of a push so it's weird that you're choosing this hill to die on

You can say it won't last, but that doesn't matter. A push is a push, even if it gets cut short.

Re: I seriosuly don't get this Cedric push

It's pretty telling about the state of wwe where they are pushing someone that was a lower midcard in ROH because he was too bland of a personalty for them, the same ROH that had Davey Richards and Roderick Strong as their world champions btw

Watch his match with Kota Ibushi during the the Cruiserweight Classic. If you still can't see it after seeing that, literally nobody will be able to help you.

Yeah he had a good match years ago against Kota, no ones saying he sucks in the ring. The issue most are having with him is that he has no character, no mic skills, he's completely bland and devoid of any kind of charisma or personality, he makes Ricochet look like The Rock on the mic by comparison.

He sucks simple as that, I don't understand why Heyman likes bland high flying talent I can make a case for Ricochet since he's fairly exceptional but Cedric? I just don't get it.

Why Heyman wants to push guys with no semblance of Charisma or anything outside of bogus workrate is beyond me.

Re: I seriosuly don't get this Cedric push

I always enjoyed that when he first debuted the completely cocked up his theme song. They made the slow part at the start of his theme so long that the song didn't properly kick in until he was halfway to the ring. Took them AGES to rectify that

Well, he hasn't really been given time to showcase anything, has he? Or a good character, or any good story, or any good writing. I disagree wholeheartedly about him being bland and devoid of charisma or personality - he shows a lot of physical charisma in his matches. He's a great fighting babyface, despite having absolutely no creative to work with. But I've been fighting that fight about other wrestlers for years, and some people just don't see it. But I think it's a little hard to judge someone who has never been given a decent promo segment or really any substantial creative whatsoever.

That said? I liked this segment:

He comes off as likeable, funny, humble. I like that. YMMV, I guess?

So, no answer then? Cool.

The writing for EVERYONE has been shit for years. This hasn't stopped other people from being entertaining.
