Is Johnny Curtis going to play the Fandangoo character?
Yes Johnny Curtis is Fandangoo. WWE officials are high up on his work as he’s already debuted the gimmick at live events.
What do you think of Triple H’s backstage work so far and do you have high hopes for WWE when he eventually takes over?
There are times when I believe Triple H is more in touch with the product than Vince McMahon but there are also times when I feel he’s out of touch. For example, Hunter’s commitment to developmental is definitely the right thing to do and I like the direction things are going as NXT Wrestling. However, when I hear Hunter is pushing Sheamus as the next face of the company, I just don’t see it. While I’m a fan of Sheamus and think he works hard every night out, I don’t see him as the face of the company. As a whole, WWE is poised for growth and success because of the way it’s been built.
Why isn’t Michael McGillicutty using his real last name and capitalizing on the fact he’s the son of Curt Hennig?
WWE gave Joe Hennig the Michael McGillicutty name and I don’t think he likes it more than anyone else. I can’t begin to explain it other than they may have wanted him to have his own identity so he’s not forced to try and live up to the expectations that come along with being Curt’s son. I actually think working as Joe Hennig would help him get over but it’s also worth noting WWE changes names so they own the rights to them. With Hennig working as McGillicutty, they don’t risk him leaving after they build him up.
When will WWE pull the trigger on a Randy Orton heel turn?
I heard Randy Orton is still pushing for a heel turn but there are obviously other plans as they wrap this program with Alberto Del Rio.
