Fandango was Vince's pet project so no matter what he was gonna go balls to the wall with it.

Saying Fandango with a yinzer accent is kinda funny.

That crowd last week was your typical Post WM crowd. The same thing happened the year before in Miami, crowd was nuts. Those types of crowds aren't gonna be in arena's every week. It sucks, but it's just how it goes.

If he really did then why would he do something like that? Yes you can say money is the reason but why take something away from the fans? It's obviously a big show for the marks to make a statement. This is his way of getting rid of the night the marks make their voices heard.

you think there was a meeting backstage where they said, "listen Fandangoo... clearly this 'Fandangoing' thing is a big thing. license to print money. But in the off chance it doesn't work, just heel it up."

No doubt. If the crowd bought in and said his name when he asked them to then the face turn was in. Crash and burn though and nah we weren't gonna turn him face the plan was for him to he a heel the whole time.

Fandango will be a Santino-level wrestler in a month anyway.

The best thing they could have done is just let it go like nothing happened.

Fandangoing was stupid anyway. A bored crowd danced and sang along to entertain themselves and get themselves over. Now WWE wants it to be the Macarena. You can't force these things. it's like trying to make "fetch" happen.


I should add that I'm sure there will be more dancing next week in London but that, like post Mania Raw, doesn't mean that the average WWE crowd will buy in.

That's exactly it, and that's exactly what they tried to do by showing the clips and giving the long intro. If the crowd doesn't want to do it or doesn't care, then it won't happen.

Hey, a recently turned meathead heel challenging the champ. This must be a new storyline.
