Re: I seriosuly don't get this Cedric push

There is no push.. its just throwing a bone to the little guys to keep them motivated and not leave. So now instead of using the same low carder, they will change the faces every few months to give them all some tv time. I dont mind it honestly. What I do mind is these guys pinning guys like AJ and Daniel Bryan just for that "OMG what an upset!... He did it..." and "the biggest win of his career!", while the guy is in the ring with the same shocked expression pretending like they won a champions league or something.

Dang you guys really shat on him. He's really not that bad. And I disagree that he is not as good as Ricochet in the ring. Ricochet does more flips doesn't mean he's better.

Re: I seriosuly don't get this Cedric push

A little piece of my childhood died when Stone Cold shared a beer with this geek tonight. Austin should have stunned everyone in the ring not named Braun.

I can’t believe they managed to even ruin a Stone Cold appearance.

(rolls eyes)

Yeah, good thing we have Corbin and Roman to counter him and make the show good. I'm sure ratings will skyrocket.

To answer your question he's athletic, he's got a good look, a neat finish and presumably, he's very nice and easy to like and work with backstage.

Re: I seriosuly don't get this Cedric push

What am i missing? dude has the charisma of a fucking lamp post, to me he's just a less charismatic version of Ricochet which is saying something, and he's not as good as Ricochet in the ring.

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?
Because spots is what the WWE loves now. Flips and spots galore is the only thing that matters in the WWE thesedays, so Cesaro still doesn't get pushed because he doesn't do enough flips.

Re: I seriosuly don't get this Cedric push

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
I don't like it either.

That Lumbar Check looked cool, though.

But he is just another random smiling black guy (btw, no racism here), just like Apollo Crews.

Random smiling babyface would suffice.

His skin color doesn't matter, I don't see why you mention it. :rock5

Re: I seriosuly don't get this Cedric push

He's talented and is given a spotlight to get over. At least the WWE is in the mindset of giving guys a chance to show what they have and make connections with the crowd. They're trying it now with a lot of new guys so I'm glad for his push. He's not gonna be a top guy but you need guys that can fill in your undercard and guys like that need pushes like his to succeed.

Cedric and Ricochet are Paul Heyman guys, and WWE thinks they'll help bring up ratings with the teen demographic.

LMAO at people blaming HEYMAN of all people.

Vince McMahon worked the fuck out of you guys, huh? It's still his show. NOBODY gets pushed that he doesn't want

Cedric is a charisma vacuum, has ZERO character or like anything. It's ridiculous he gets TV time while EC3 battles irrelevancey in catering

I take it that you don't watch Smackdown where Ali (who never even won the damn Cruiserweight Title) was pushed and had a WWE Title match on PPV albeit in a triple threat. BUT, that was supposed to be a 1 on 1 PPV match for the title with Daniel Bryan whom he did pin clean on TV.

If you ask me, he has pushed bigger than Cedric so far....and Cedric beat him at Wrestlemania!

He is filler material. He loses far more than he wins if anyone pays attention. WWE isn't going to just put on 3 matches with their biggest stars...they are going to give you the Alexanders and the Ricochets and Mustafa Alis who will get a rise out of the crowd with their acrobatics to keep the fans entertained until the big matches. They will occasionally get a few moments.

Plus, before last week, who got even half as good a match out of Baron F**$$% Corbin???? The guy can go in the ring and what he did with Corbin makes him deserving of a match with AJ at the PPV as a reward. Should he beat AJ for the US title...hell no! But that should be a phenomenal match!

When did this forum become the Doomer central of wrestling <img src="http://www.wrestlingforum.com/images/smilies/roflmao.gif" border="0" alt="" title="ROFLMAO" class="inlineimg" />

Flip Man Bad.
I started to notice it when Balor got brought up I summer 2016. This forum was mostly negative towards his push and he wasn't even a flippy dude but that's what he was labeled.

Alexander is getting midcard push. He gave Corbin the best match of his career last week so deserves his spot no question, Austin aries couldn't get close to the level of match with Corbin that Alexander did.
