I dont get it. This seriously pisses me off. We all remember the promo Ziggler cut on the wwe app. Ambrose had one hell of a promo on the fastlane PRESHOW and this is the way it is every single week. The promos are 2 minutes long and you cant fit these in on raw? Instead you have Cena and Rusev cut the same promo they have for weeks and waste 15 minutes that you could of spent on this Cody promo, a backstage segment between Rusev and Cena and a couple other things.

Heres the promo btw

It´s their strategy for getting people to download the app/buy the network.

No promo is showing Op, but it was something that should have been televised.

Now it is:) check it out if you havent. Its pretty sick that two of the only memorable promos of the past year in this and zigglers both were on the freaking app/fallout whatever you wanna call it when they have 2 hours and 15 minutes of non commercial tv. Only 45 minutes of wrestling aswell. Wheres the time going for fucks sake dont get it

Fantastic promo from :stardust.

Blurs the lines too, as in kayfabe and real-life, most of those old guys need to get the fuck out already.
Cody seriously gives it 100% each and every time. And the best promos are usually a mix of kayfabe and real life.

Cody should have been televised.

Though not in place of the Rusev promo. He was good there and pretty much told Cena off, which is always fun to hear. Have it in place of the Women's intros and match instead. That was so bad they would have been better doing nothing last night.

He's a terrific talent. Most people would've failed with the Stardust gimmick, but he took it and has made it entertaining as hell.

All I want for Christmas is for Big Show to go the fuck away and never comes back.

Basically, this is what happens when you have an App and YouTube to promote.

"Hey, Vince, we wrote a promo for Ambrose. It explains why he stole the belt from Barrett, what the belt means to him, and defines his character."

:vince5 "PUT IT ON THE TUBE!"

"Hey, Vince, Ziggler's not written in our immediate plans for Mania but we have a segment with him talking about what he plans to do for Wrestlemania. I mean, he is one of the most over stars on the roster so we thought that..."

:vince5 "PUT IT ON THE TUBE!"

"Hey, Vince, we have a promo for Stardust and it further explains why he resents his brother so much but it also involves some of the senior members of the roster. Where do you want it?"

:vince5 "PUT IT ON THE TUBE!"

"Hey, Vince..."

:vince5 "..........."

"The tube?"

:vince5 "THE TUBE!!!"

"Goddammit."

That was impressive, yet distressing that WWE doesnt think that merits maximum exposure. Thanks, again for posting. :)

Most people would have failed with the Stardust Gimmick

Most people would have failed with the "Mustache" Gimmick

Most people would have failed with the "Dr. Doom" Gimmick

Most people would have failed with the "Dashing" Gimmick

WWE hopefully has finally seen the pattern here with Cody.

I will always believe there is a main event star in Cody. He's well above average in the ring and on the mic even though he's never really been given anything great to work with.

On a side note, was that Eden (his wife) interviewing him? Must have been hard not to laugh.

And he's not even 30 yet. He could go so much further if the WWE really got behind him.

As a Marvel fanboy, I must call you out on that. Rhodes couldn't lick Victor's Doom Bots' boots. :fuckedup

Okay, nerd rage over. :D:

But yeah, he's pretty underrated. Him and Goldust.
