Following the Alberto Del Rio vignettes/disintegration of NXT/Kaval's release, I've come to the realization that I'd much rather have WWE return to the tried and true method of debuting new "superstars" after a series of promos and vignettes, the old-fashioned way.

Anyway, sounds like a decent plan. Reportedly, a lot of higher-ups still think Bourne is the heir to the Mysterio throne, insofar as he's a much smaller-than-average individual who could break through with fans based, in part, on being an "underdog." We'll see, I guess.

A series of Bourne-Bryan matches sounds too good to be true for the spring.

Yes, I read it somewhere, but now I can't find it. I think MITB is the plan, but that's speculation.

Until I hear diefferently I'm going to assume he'll get involved with the Nexus feud. CM Punk, the group's new leader, is the one who injured him so it's the obvious thing to do. The fact that he and Cena have teamed up before makes it even more likely.

I hope they don't push him, I cannot stand his childish characteristics when he comes down to the ring throwing the peace sign up in the air. In addition, he has no personality whatsoever.

Your points don't agree with one another

Yes they do, I didn't mean he literally had no personality because absolutely everyone on God's green Earth has some sort of personality. I was saying he has a poor, generic personality from a wrestling standpoint. The way he presents himself as a babyface and the characteristics of him make him boring to me, obviously your a Bourne mark so your going to disagree.

The fact that I mark for the guy and you don't doesn't really make a difference. I can totally agree that the guy isn't allowed to show his personality because he gets no mic time. The one time he did get a mic, (imo) he did fine, but a few people disagreed.

I'll take the jumpy peace sign antics over walking to the ring blandly, losing, and then not being seen again for 6 weeks.

The dude's literally exciting to watch for the same reason Morrison is. The dudes have personality, they're just not the best at conveying it with words.

^ No, Bourne sucks on the mic. He sounds way too forced and a girl. Just look at SvR 2011.Morrison has a personality unlike Bourne. With that being said, if they do push Bourne, just don't give him the mic. Let his wrestling do the talking.

This is good if true, I'm pleased. The guy has passable mic skills, people generally don't give him much credit for them but to be fair he's never been given much of a chance to show them. He's terrific in the ring, one of the best sellers in the entire company, and he deserves a push, he's a hard worker and he's entertaining.

I think what Bourne needs is a good gimmick, because being himself isnt really working. Sadly, gimmicks seem to be a dying breed in WWE today.

He just comes across as a little wet to me.
