I've read other accounts, and AJ most certainly did NOT shake his hand after this. Guy seems like a completely retarded mark. He said AJ "was being a horrible face, so I got under his skin," not even realizing AJ is a tweener.
He about did last Smackdown. Yes, Randy has been extremely stale as face. Still, casual still cheers him. Oh, please no.
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
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.
... and X-Pac, Dean Malenko, Billy Kidman, Scotty 2 Hotty, Jamie Noble, Tajiri, Chavo and Matt Hardy.
