No, there was definitely an answer, you just actually had to absorb the words and peer between the letters a little bit.

And yes, quite frankly, it has stopped a great number of people from being entertaining. Jon Moxley immediately springs to mind, but you and I both know how many people have been held back by WWE's poor creative.

If the bar for those worthy of a mid-card push is now "got over in spite of bad writing," or in Cedric's case, "got over in spite of never having a real story, substantial promo segment, or even marquee match," I think you may as well just declare everyone unworthy. Very, very few people have managed it in the last decade, and I can't believe I even have to type that.

And I still disagree with the core indictment, because I like Cedric and find him very entertaining.

I don't have much of a problem with Cedric himself. I have a problem that there is too many guys like Cedric. Cedric doesn't really stand out to me.

Re: I seriosuly don't get this Cedric push

Seems like most people don't mind him but he doesn't stand out like people have mentioned here. I have to agree. I don't mind seeing a match including Cedric but an actual angle? ..Nah

Re: I seriosuly don't get this Cedric push

There is no difference between Cedric, Ricochet and Ali except for skin color and hair. They're all uninteresting charisma vacuums who all do virtually the same moves and fail to stand out from one another.

Ali- Former police officer who wants to break down prejudices in how people view each other by being the world champion.

Ricochet - He is a literal superhero. He does superhuman things.

Cedric - I'll agree that he needs something that can tether him to the audience. I'll put that blame on WWE because they haven't tried anything other than him being the "Heart of 205 Live" or the "Brock Lesnar of 205 Live".

You're a fan, that's cool. We'll have to agree to disagree on these guys.

They all have something to bring to the table... which is exciting in-ring action. The character stuff can be added on as needed. More Alexanders and less Elias'.

Then A LOT of it needs to be added very soon. Flashy moves make the fans go "Wow, neat!", but then what? They need substance.

To each their own.

Re: I seriosuly don't get this Cedric push

Cedric is really getting disrespected here. Is he as good as Ricochet, no is he very good in his own right yes. The answer why he's getting a push is that Heyman likes him however I can see from the comments that many are already shitting on Heyman's direction.
