Is it sad that I got more enjoyment from the opening credits than I did for the whole 3 hour show? :smt011

for me i guess, I fast forward through most of the 3 hours, I'm not feeling Wrestlemania this year, it might be the worst one in a while at least for me.

I really haven't seen enough of Johnny Curtis in the ring to make up my mind about his in-ring ability but my thought on this "Fandango" gimmick is that it is an unfortunate gimmick that he has been saddled with and it will definitely hurt his chances on becoming a bigger star down the road. This is the type of gimmick that will end up living in infamy on the Wrestlecrap website and unless he gets away from it quickly, it will follow him throughout his entire WWE career. Oddly enough, it reminds me of the unfortunate gimmick that was given to Rico Constantino when he was introduced to the WWE back in 2002.

Agreed. Everyone complained about Brodus getting stuck with a lame gimmick but Fandango is any worse than the Funkasaurus. Fandango reminds of a really bad Saturday Night Live skit that would have bee done by Chris Kattan.

The problem is, you have these events like last night's RAW where you are reminded about all the gimmicks that used to fill wrestling promotions back in the day. You see guys like Sgt. Slaughter and the Million Dollar Man and it brings back some fond memories of old school wrestling...but then you have to remember for every one of the good gimmicks there was also a Thurman "Sparky" Plugg, a Giant Gonzales, or a Dr. Issac Yankem DDS. Gimmicks can be fun in moderation but there are some that clearly do not have any place in a wrestling ring.

Yeah, if you fail a test. An arrest for possession is, I believe, a violation.

Not of the Wellness Policy. It's a violation of Vince's Magical Rules List. They're magical because they change frequently, you see.

I take that back. It is a legit violation of the Wellness Policy!

Also, remember how Steve Austin, Triple H, the Rock, Rikishi, Edge, Christian, and, well, you get the point, were saddled forever with shitty gimmicks that made it so they'd never get over?

Talent rises above. That's why Curtis will get over.

Rob Van Dam was forced to drop both the WWE and ECW Championships following his drug related arrest. I realize that Jack Swagger put the WWE between a rock and a hard place by being arrested 2 days after being handed the title shot but if you are going to have a Wellness Program and enforce it, show some consistency. Give the opportunity to another superstar. Although, I wouldn't be too surprised if the WWE has Ziggler cash in after the match and steal the win and the show from whoever actually wins the match.

Rob Van Dam didn't get them near the amount of publicity Swagger has.
