97% of the time I don't get annoyed when I see something on pro wrestling that absolutely insults my intelligence. It's pro wrestling, right? Who really cares?
But every great while, I have a day like today, where it just randomly struck me how absolutely moronic the "I won't debut until you say my name right" storyline is for Fandango. The Raw brand basically has 2 authority figures……and these authority figures can book matches with major stipulations, and force even the most rebellious of rebels to compete in matches against their will…….but they can't force a metrosexual salsa dancer to compete in a match?
Major logic gap there…..and sadly, I don't think anyone cares enough about that storyline to even question it.
Oh, it's probably one of the worst storylines right now, because there's no progression and no payoff. Eventually he'll wrestle and it'll just be Johnny Curtis. I will say that I thought the Damien Sandow gimmick was a loser for a while before he managed to get it over by sheer force of willpower, and ditto for Antonio Cesaro: Evil Rugby Player, so who knows what will happen once he actually gets into the ring.
