Re: **WWE Raw/Smackdown Viewing Thread**

I saw a thread on another forum titled something like "Alexa Bliss topless" and they talking about it being like the AE again. People are such idiots. omg I saw a bare back!!!

I'm alright with Lashley as champ. I'm more ok with it if KO or Sami come back and take the title from him since he put both on the shelf in kayfabe. It seems like a fun story.

EC3 needs a rebrand or refreshed angle. Vince's bastard son coming for the throne?
Please explain. He interrupted a wrestling segment, wandering onto the set and barking nonsense. What part of that was sexual?

He was barking pretty lady whilst his partner was "holding him back"... Holding him back from doing what exactly is up for interpretation. Maybe bopping Bliss on the head and dragging her back to his cave?

Well I’m glad to see you aren’t jumping to ridiculous conclusions or anything.

Re: **WWE Raw/Smackdown Viewing Thread**

I couldn't understand anything he was barking. I thought it was unintelligible. I didn't perceive him as showing any more aggression towards her than he was Heyman.

Edit: And I thought his partner was just guiding him back towards the back as if he was wandering around lost.

It was a dumb skit. Let's move on rather than try to dissect the dumb.

I'm neutral on the name change but his match tonight with Mysterio was extremely good.

I actually like this change for 2 reasons

1. Andrade "Cien" Almas is a trash name and Andrade is better.
2. A lot of hispanic athletes go by 1 name so to have him simple be Andrade it seems like it sonewhat gives him a bit of a boost.

What percentage of wrestlers who had their full name dropped to just a single name ever received a serious main event push after that?

Almost zero. Rusev has done an amazing job of getting himself over, but he's only gotten one quick meaningless WWE title match as a result. As a general rule, Serious Main Event Guys have both a first and last name.

Sid. Kane. Yokozuna. Diesel. Mankind.

Admittedly Sid is the only one of these whose name was dropped from something longer.

Those three guys are all mid-card 4 life. Having a last or first name get dropped is not a sign of a wrestler about to be future endeavored. But it's not a sign of a guy headed to the main event of Wrestlemania either.

Was he ever just Sid in WWE? I remember him going from Sid Justice to Sycho Sid. I don't remember him as Sid. And yeah the other examples don't fit my rule. Having one name is not career-limiting. Getting a first or last name dropped is.

While I don't expect it to happen anytime soon, I still think that Big E could make it to the main event. He has every tool. Obviously it would not be under the current gimmick.
