Not really, he's supposed to be a heel. Fan(fan)dan(dan)go(go-go-o-o) should be disapproving of "Fandangoing" seeing as he is inimitable.

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.

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.

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.

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

Pretty sure they just gave Kofi the belt so he could lose it to Big E Langston soon. Dolph's had a couple matches with Kofi in the last few weeks where Big E attacks him after the match, so they needed it to be on a face instead of a heel.

I think they're building up to having the power trio all have titles. Dolph as the Heavyweight champ, AJ as the Divas champ (she won that #1 contenders match) and Big E as the US champ.
