Because Santino can wrestle, yet the WWE never allows him to do so. What's wrong with a Kurt Angle type character, a goofy personality with an intense approach in the ring?why do you want him to stop working as a good joke character which actually entertain people?
they always have joke characters in WWE history. it's not like Santino is the first.
Uhm... Festus?They could have Santino sustain a head injury that causes him to turn serious, maybe come up with a new name for himself, a completely new identity, then he could be turned back to his comedy character at any point, if his serious character doesn't work out.
I think if they turned him like this, it could make a non-comedy Santino character work for a while.
You know how certain tv shows are good the first 2 or 3 season? But then somewhere down the line they start over doing it because that's exactly what Santino is.....The gawd misses heel Santino. i know, i know, i know... "HEELS R ALWAYS BETTUR". but tbh the shit he does now is just too kiddy for my grown-ass self, b. not sayin they should change it, since WWE is more geared towards the young'uns n not old-ass ****** like me, but i personally liked him better as a heel.
