What most people forget, is the fact that R-Truth has beaten The Miz before. I believe he beat him for the United States Championship last May or June, until losing it in a Fatal 4 Way in about a month later. So R-Truth has the skill.
R-truth will go heel, Dont be surprise if he does win the title.
This is a great blog I love this blog
I feel this was a smart move. It was a curve ball on the WWE's part and it gives an unorthodox wrestler a chance to showcase his skills in the mainevent. Physically R-Truth is the opposite of the traditional world champ. Traditional world champs are white/canadian, wear tights, have huge bodies, subpar in ring skills but great mic skills.
R-Truth wrestles in jeans wit a design, he's black, but he actually can wrestle. I think its a great idea because its cool to see a blackman in the mainevent. I mean I dont understand how the WWE has had credible black wrestlers but they never push them past the US Title.
MVP was World Title Material. He had the perfect gimmick, was an exellent heel, perfect mic skills, aggressive in the ring and a long US Title Run. He was superstar ready and they turned him face and drowned his character.
Kofi Kingston was at the top of his game. Multiple time US/Intercontinental Champ. He was in the feud of his life with Orton. Made one small mistake and his push was dropped.
But yet the Miz can blossom to a feud with Cena, to US Champ, to Tag Team Champ and finally to WWE Champ.
Why is it that so many black wrestlers get demoted in the middle of their push. I'm not playing the race card but its a shame when the last black World Champ was Booker T which was forever ago.
And yes I know the Rock was black but I mean the WWE needs to start building credible wrestlers from all races. We've seen our share of White, Canadian & Mexican World Champs but the WWE needs to build a serious Black and Japanese World Champ and stop making them only good enough for the United States Belt.
I even think Shad could've been World Champ material as a strong heel but he wasn't given much of a chance before being sent back to FCW.
Once again great blog. I just think the WWE needs to make more stars credible. I'm dying to see a Ted Dibiase Jr & Kofi Kingston push because I believe those two are World Chmpion Material
maybe a heel turn would be a great idea for him.....
i agree with this 100% he has incredible cred.......cause of his tna days......and starting off with the road dogg in the wwe when he first appeared on the screen he just needs to look more serious
R truth Sucks actually...
I already liked this blog because it wasn't the typical IWC whining about why doesn't [their user name] have God Mode on WWE/TNA Booking and how they're 100% right. Then you made the ENTERTAINER reference which made this blog epic. That's WHAT'S UP!
