The WWE office is "very happy" with the progress of Fandango. Not only that, we're told his success has scored a lot of points internally for Terry Taylor. Taylor, who works as a trainer at WWE NXT, worked closely with Fandango for months in developmental and made him a bit of a "personal project."
Terry is a guy that came over from TNA Wrestling and is considered part of the new "Triple H regime." We're told the success of Fandango has shut up some of his critics that questioned his ability to help develop new talent.
The gimmick is considered a "feather in his cap" as it was Taylor that went to bat for Fandango while he was languishing in developmental after his failed run on Smackdown as Johnny Curtis.
