I think he could be used alot better. He should be booked like Goldberg and have Frank Shamrock's keylock as his finisher. That would actually be entertaining to watch.

Theres a YT video of Santino before he came to WWE somewhere, he was a Russian nutter lol. So he can do serious aswell as comedy.
I remember hearing a good idea a while back when he was with Beth when she was a "female monster" of having her be his "Trainer" and then him come back kicking everyones ass. Personally i think that would of been a good time to change his character. They do need to do something with him soon because he is entertaning but atm his segments are just too cringeworthy.

that would actually be a little better for goldust imo. goldust was once credible, and he can still go at a pretty good clip. i dont think it would take much to make him look credible again. santino on the other hand...he would have a lot of work to do..he could do it, but he would need to turn super serious heel first.

I would mark out if Santino started dominating wrestlers like Cena, Orton and Triple H with a submission hold. He can still keep his character and just be more serious in the ring like Kurt Angle. I also think he has a great look. WWE is dropping the ball on this guy IMO.

All his credibilities have been destroyed since he lost his IC title, i don't think the fans will ever take him seriously anymore.

Hes essentially typecasted at this point.

I dont think casual fans would ever be able to take him seriously after his comedy run.

It's still hilarious to me how he started as an IC champ right off the bat, and now is a vicious comedy act that loses matches with extreme italian ferocity!

I was a big Santino mark when he first debuted.

Not gonna lie, he can still make me laugh. But yeah, nothing, wrestling-wise at least, is happening with him.
