Anybody care to explain why creative built up Zack Ryder only to knock him down in less than a month? I know there was talk of disappointment with his ratings draw – but seriously, we’re talking about the U.S. champion. What did you really expect?
Why is he dropping the strap to Jack Swagger? I get they want to continue the feud with the Vickie stable, but Swagger brings NOTHING to the table in popularity, merchandise or ratings. Swagger’s gimmick SUCKS! I’m not saying he sucks, I’m saying his gimmick does. Swagger can be a strong force if packaged correctly. I have a great idea for him – but I don’t care to share it because I’m not on the WWE payroll. Swagger has ZERO value to WWE at this point. So knocking off one of your most popular characters, who has above average merchandise sales and is tied into current pop culture – makes sense where?
The only bad thing I have to say about Zack Ryder is that his acting skills suck. He needs to loosen the smile on his face because he looks like a wrestling fan who is living in a mark fantasy world. You made it Broski! You’re popular, you main event, you have merchandise and people chant your name. You’re on the OTHER SIDE now. Know your role.
