Im pretty sure all 4 will get a massive push soon and be a regular feature on Smackdown soon.
But im slightly confused as to why Sandow is being pushed ahead of the likes of Rollins, Hero and Ambrose who in my opinion are far greater prospects for the future and already proved them selves at other promotions.

Its all about paying your dues and WWE thinking you are ready or not but from what I have seen the other 3 have looked more impressive.

Cause creative has nothing for those guys? I'd rather have them wait for a good storyline and persona, than rush them out and flop.

Because as things are right now Sandow is more prepared than Rollins and Ohno. I think they want to do something big with Ambrose seeing as, in my opinion, he has much more potential than everyone else in developmental (Rollins may end up being the most popular of all of them if he gets lucky)

Basically Sandow is as prepared as the others as far as ring work goes and has the advantage of already having a very well defined and entertaining character.

Sandow was the guy who "fit" what they wanted to do at that moment. Ambrose needs a better introduction. Ohno is still getting his legs under him in FCW. It's not like they could have given Sandow's spot to Seth Rollins. They threw Sandow out there because it was an easy introduction, and if he bombs, they're not really out anything.

Because they're playing up a big angle for Ambrose, where he debuts will make a huge impact as well. Would tomorrow against Foley as opposed to the 1000th episode near Foley's home town make a bigger splash? fuck no, it's better waiting 2 months and having a huge impact. Rollins also has a lot of potential, they're just gonna let him stay at Full Sail for a while, till they find a really good story for him as well as Hero. It's better not having 9 people debut at once or else it becomes over congested and not everyone is gonna have a lot of camera/mic time to establish their characters.

Ohno just got there and Rollins has no gimmick or personality. I believe WWE has plans for Ambrose. The guy is still working house shows and dark matches, while Rollins hasn't been as of late. Sandow has worked hard as well; He went through Puerto Rico after being released by WWE in 2007, then was resigned and he found a character that works while in FCW.

Haven't seen much of Hero and Rollins, but compared to Ambrose. . .

Sandow is:

A: A better mic worker by far

B: More interesting

C: Has a better look

D: Has a much better build (Ambrose is a small ground wrestler)

E: invokes more crowd reaction

F: Doesn't seem as generic


He's literally better than Ambrose almost across the board. Ambrose is just a little better in the ring. If not for that, it'd be a sweep in favor of Sandow, who unlike Barret and most of the other newbies to come up in the last couple years, actually looks like he's ready to go and doesn't talk like a robot on the mic.

Ambrose at the very least needs to hit the gym a bit and increase his build by maybe 10-15% before he should be brought up. imo anyway. Feel free to disagree.

The build argument is ridiculous considering Punk and Bryan's positions in WWE. He has added more muscle and is in better shape than the WWE champion . All the other stuff is opinion, but the build argument doesn't hold water at all.

Why is this a discussion? He was simply called up before all those guys. Ohno has only been in FCW for a few months. He should stay down there for a while. No point in bringing in Rollins and Ambrose till they have a plan for those guys. Sandow is up because they had an idea for him and hes done a good job with it. The IWC has massively overrated this guy though.

Its not a matter of being ready, theyre all ready. Its a matter of coming up with something for these guys. Ohno needs to have a run in FCW for about a year at least. We'll see Rollins and Ambrose within 6 months from now.

Because a large majority of the IWC genuinely masturbate at the sight of an intelligent, generic heel, and a large majority of casuals feel belittled?

Nah. It can't be that.

Probably because Sandow has been wrestling in the devs for like 8 years or something? He deserves it most, that's why.

You can't put 'em all on TV at the same time. You have Sandow, who has been around for damn years and is 100% ready- excellent character, great in the ring, great promos etc- and now they have a spot for him on TV. And so he is. It's not really a case of being pushed ahead of whoever, it's more down to who is the most ready and who can be easily slotted into the current shape of things. Sandow can. Kassius has only just got down to developmental. He's not ready. He's obviously a great talent, but there's still some fine-tuning to do before he can get onto TV. Mostly his character, that department needs a lot of work.

Ambrose is going to be huge, and most likely pushed huge straight off the bat. I have no qualms with his debut being delayed so long as it ends up great. Do you really want to see him be given the "video package-BOOM-Smackdown" treatment? Or better yet, the "BOOM, on Smackdown now!!!" treatment? I can see him getting a Raw debut, and it is totally deserved.

As far as Rollins goes, there's definitely space for him to fit into the midcard scene, seeing as babyfaces are desperately needed, but what's the hurry? He's, what, 25, 26? Basically a baby. There's no problem with him staying down at FCW to keep on fine tuning. He has so much potential, and I'd like to see that developed more before being put on TV. At least wait for the roster to continue shifting like it is before calling up more talent. Big changes are happening, you just have to wait. Sandow is no less "deserving" than those you mentioned. He's a great talent and I'm happy for him.

He's miles better than Hero and Rollins. I don't think he'll be pushed harder than Ambrose if he is going straight on the A show and straight into a program with Foley.

Ambrose >> Sandow. All of what you said was your opinion and most people here would disagree.

Please let this be sarcasm *facepalm*

Most people here think Christian is worth more than being a midcarder. They're wrong. Most people here are complete fucking morons.
Guy thinks Christian doesn't deserve to be a main eventer.

Then proceeds to call people who do fucking morons.

Irony stew anyone?
