No. It was funny and entertaining when the crowd did it on their own outta nowhere last week. But now WWE is pushing it and going "everybody Fandango! it's the latest thing!" or "Fandango's coming out next! I wonder if the crowd is going to start Fandango'ing??" and it just seems forced and less entertaining

It's like when you were younger and old people/teachers would get ahold of slang and start using it. It's suddenly not cool anymore.

Also, is WWE handling RyBack vs Cena angle right?

While the back-story seems logical, RyBack is still quite hot as face but are they trying to turn him heel or at least make it look like he is turning heel?

I actually liked the Ryback promo, it was well-thought out.

Storyline-wise, Ryback is a heel now and pretty much in most locations the WWE visits. But places like NYC, U.K. Philly, or Toronto then the crowd will cheer for him as a "face."

You're right. They shouldn't try to force it. If anything, ignore it and let the crowds dictate whether or not this sticks around. Judging by the reaction last night, it didn't seem like they were interested in being told when to Fandango. To have King out there announcing his entrance was dumb as well.

Fandangoing - This is like one of the rare times (might be a first) that the WWE actually embrace crowd reactions on Raw or on screen. Normally, they do it on their Web site and stuff, but never really have it interfere with their on-screen program.

Last year, Bryan cut a promo and blamed AJ for his WrestleMania loss and only embraced the crowd support when Raw went off air. So on screen, he still in character and still a heel.

No, it's like trying to shove someone they want you to cheer down your throat. The crowd will pick and choose their own heroes and villains, same with this Fandango movement. Force-feeding it down people's throats is likely to have the opposite effect of what they want.

London crowd was nice. Nice choice for having Fandango, who was over as hell there, a match against another always-over-in-England William Regal, then having a little touch with Chris Jericho on both ends.

Undertaker was helluva over as well.

Even RyBack's promo is a hell lot like Goldberg, seriously.

But also seriously, don't turn RyBack fully heel yet. Just my opinion.

What is going on with Antonio Cesaro lately? Since WM, which he was left out completely, he lost the US belt to Kofi Kingston, then has been on losing streak even in house shows while having stupid yodeling entrances since then.

We see through his feud with Miz that he absolutely has a potential to be the next big star there, then he got buried like this?

Vince is desperate to latch onto any little trend that he takes the fun out of the whole thing by forcing it.

The most frustrating thing. One of the VERY few guy who don't need US/IC title, he should've been chucked in the (smackdown) main event straight-away.


Stuff like this (and the miz's retarded push) makes me believe in those "bear-skin rug" rumours. C'mon Antonio just bite down hard, it'll be over soon.

No idea. When I DVR Raw/Smackdown (which i always do now because the majority of the show is just awful and i like being able to pick which parts i watch) there are only like 4-5 people I'll actually watch the matches of rather than fast forwarding:

Ziggler
Punk
Bryan
Jericho
Cesaro

Basically the people that actually switch their offense up every match. Granted they all have their signature moves, but most of the main eventers are ALL sequence fighters (meaning they follow the exact same sequence every fight)

Sheamus
Orton
Cena
Del Rio

All bore the living hell out of me
