Honestly it's very rare that a face is entertaining to me. They're all so cookie cutter. The special wrestlers are the ones who can still manage to be entertaining as a good guy. Rock, Austin, HBK, Taker, Punk, Jericho etc. But as good as all of them are as faces, every single one is MORE entertaining as a heel. The typical formula for a face in the PG era:

1. Use the phrase "WWE Universe" at least 3 times per promo
2. Say the name of the host city for a cheap pop
3. Make 2nd grade-level poop and fart jokes/namecalling
4. Don't sell any injury or beatdown for more than one episode

Been catching some Smackdown replays of the past 2-3 weeks on youtube, it looks to me that they're building up Daniel Bryan as the new underdog franchise guy on SD. The way he connects with the crowd is very similar to the fan connection with Rey and Jeff Hardy.

And he's also embracing the Yes chant during his entrance too. Dolph vs Bryan should be good, I'm expecting that around SummerSlam time.

It's funny that just a little over a year ago they tried to bury Bryan to make Sheamus look good so he can be the new face of Smackdown. Didn't work, Sheamus had a shitty ass face run, similar to Orton's face run a couple of years ago when he feuded with Christian and Henry.

Bryan just fits the bill to be the underdog hero.

WWE needs to bring back the Cruiserweight title. Sin Cara is now jobbing in WWE Main Event and Superstars.

Look at these Potential Cruiserweight Rosters.

Zach Ryder, The returning Rey Mysterio/Tyson Kidd, Sin Cara, and sign some Luchadores and Japanese Wrestlers.

I agree, but Sin Cara sucks. Still, Kidd, Bourne, Zayn, Kofi, Hunico (or Camacho? Whoevers the smaller one.), Gabriel, Rey & Hawkins would be a pretty good mix. They'd have to get rid of U.S title though.

I like cruiserweight wrestlers but I don't like the idea of having an inferior division. The only guy that got over during the cruiserweight days was Rey.

Bryan would be a cruiserweight. Cody Rhodes would be a cruiserweight. Kofi as well. They have had a lot for good "cruiserweight" wrestlers the last 3 or 4 years. Punk would have started out in the cruiserweight division if it was around after 2007 and who knows how his career would have turned out if he was looked upon as a cruiserweight earlier.

It's better that smaller guys aren't being separated from the big boys. And it's good to see that Vince is giving them some love over the big steroid-looking freaks.

It's not boxing or MMA. It's scripted wrestling, weight classes shouldn't matter.

There were rumors ages ago when people were saying Alex Shelly was going to WWE that they planned to start a Cruiserweight only TV show for their new WWE Network.

None of those guys you listed were even given an I.C. run. Matt was the only other guy that had some good feuds (Jeff, MVP, Edge) and was the U.S. champ. Chavo's had a few sucess with Eddie and Rey. I wouldn't count WWE's ECW heavyweight title as a real world title when they barely got any PPV matches for them.

They were kept on Velocity, Heat and opening Smackdown shows.

WWE cruiserweight division was nowhere near WCW one. The way it was built until Russo came in was great. Basically, around the first hour of WCW Nitro was for those wrestlers to make the best out of it as a lead-in for nWo and other stuffs later.

WWE couldn't ever duplicate that.
