    Pathetic attempt of “please, keep me relevant.” He needs to give up and accept that he was too boring.

    Tarver put me to sleep talking in the ring. I dare not click the video encase I fall asleep at my desk.

  • XKonn247

    Honestly, he was that member of the Nexus that just straight up sucked. Didn’t stand out, had maybe two minutes in the ring actually wrestling he needs to grow up

  • Mike

    Errmmm… what was that?
    Did he attend Vince Russo's seminar recently?
    I think he took the elective titled "How To Burn Your Bridges Behind You After Crossing Them." Or maybe it was the one entitled "How To Look Like A Complete And Total Arse."
    He kinda lost his lyrical flow towards the end there, didn't he? Poor bloke. Cunning linguist he isn't.
    Completely bereft of style and charisma. And rhythm. And content, though I'll admit some of the content was probably hidden behind his poor pronunciation and lack of verbal clarity.
    Maybe I just don't get it, but then rap, or whatever that was, has never been my forte. More of a Progressive Metal/Instrumental Rock fan, but I always had a soft spot for the West Texas Rednecks. Maybe it's a cultural thing? Who knows.
    All I know is that he's coming across as a very bitter, very boring, very uninteresting mundane little moron whose future within the business will probably be very short and very irrelevant.

    You guys know wrestling is scripted right? So the fact he came across boring was due to the way his character was scripted, he was a rookie who must have shown something to get on televised shows, out of the 3 of you above how many of you have made it on tele as a wwe performer?? People need time to grow, did you guys walk straight into yours jobs (providing you all work) and just get it straight away? I rest my case!

      Thanks for clearing that up for us, that makes sense now as to why Vince isn't a pile of ashes.

      Tarver wasn't scripted to be boring… No guy could act that boring… that their my friend is 20 odd years of it coming naturally. NXT was about promo's and I'm sure backstage he was not told to go out there and stumble your words, don't get to the point oh and remember… we want you to act as the least talented out of the Nexus.

      • Razmos01

        And every wrestler on that roster has great mic skills? Didnt taker fluff his lines on raw? Getting the date for mania wrong, Punk has screwed up lines 2, if he was so bad on the mic he would of had less mic time, take bobby lashley as an example on that, he was so bad on the mic he hardly ever cut a promo, the great khali was world champion and dude cant even speak good english??

        • http://thebadgersden.co.uk sdunne87

          Those guys you mentioned back it up in the ring. Tarver hasn't. Some wrestlers rely on charisma (Ryder) some rely more on wrestling ability (Bryan) and some rely on pure look (Khali)… I honestly can't say that Tarver has any of the above and should seriously stop trying to eek his way into the spotlight by latching on to other peoples storylines.

    • bruno

      he is naturally boring

  • JamieSNZ

    Pfft please. Id rather listen to Cole than Tarver. At least Cole has his moments.

  • Deadman_walking

    Booooorrriiinnnnnggggg

  • Bubba J

    He took a shot at the Miz in his rap also.

  • WNW Fan

    Correct me if I'm wrong but Cena's the one who actually had the album deals right? Why do some guys think it's not ok for a white guy to do rap? Does that mean Cowboy Troy or Darius Rucker is wrong for being country?

  • Ellen

    Sad, very very sad. How pathetic. Couldn't wrestle – just like most of the almighty NEXUS- certainly can't rap – probably should get a real job!

  • Renegade

    Crap!! You can tell its not a freestyle, he’s clearly reading! Nobody cares about you cause u absolutely suck!!

  • CJ ROB

    Oh wait… He was the tool with mask huh? Yeah even inf Cena hurt him intentionally, all he was doing was saving the fans some boredom.

  • abd

    that was prety good

  • Johnny Hayder

    I met Evans at a convention last year he seemed cool, but this, this is just a cry for help. Doesn’t he know that eventually he could
    Be called back to WWE? That is if he spent more time perfecting his craft instead of
    Doing sideway videos in a bathroom. Talking shit about Cena? Not a good idea man,
    He’s the poster boy with a lot of stroke! I’d be kissing Cena’s ass!

  • D.J.

    Hey Tarver

    You got some raps of your own, but we still can't see ya
    There ain't no better rapper in the WWE like Cena
    Even though I hate his fruity pebble gimmick
    I can see that I found a washed out mimic
    Oooooo the big T with a 9 millimeter
    But where's your contract at, playin finders keeper?
    Homie that talks big has the biggest fall
    Humpty dumpty got rid of you like cholesterol
    So before you can jump in the ring
    Remember these few things you need to bring
    Heart, hustle, loyality, and respect
    Everything is earned, not handed to a reject
    All in all, you whack, we all know thats fact
    We all came together with this one pact
    We have no confidence, we can't go farther
    We need to shut up "Michael Tarver"

    • Adamtrace

      Lol x heaps, love it!

  • Ktownsherman

    U can’t even record a video the right way dummie..I gotta turn my computer sideways to see ya…what a dumb ass

  • Aaa

    What’s a “Michael tarver”?

  • Matt C

    I called Tarver out on Twitter about his Cena bashing and his total lack of responsibility for being released. He actually responded but what he had to say was garbage. Saying he hasn’t talked smack about Cena since last year. Dude is a joke.

  • bruno

    Thats why i love wrestling fans….The fact that most of us dont like cena doesnt give someone else the right to hate him…He was probably expecting people to support him.. Fuck you tarver or whatever your name is

  • Jester

    This guy sucks!!!

  • Karl

    The term “cutting a promo” is always funny. You’re not actually cutting anything. Lol.
