      P.P. Johnny says whether you like Santino or not, he was good comic relief. The WWE should keep him around as an on air personality because of his great mic skills

      • Aakash Mehra

        P.P. Johnny is right..

      Can’t remember the last time I didn’t fast forward during one of his matches

      • Simba

        Do his matches last long enough to be fast forwarded?

      I cannot remember a character in recent memory that actually made me laugh…really since The Rock first started spewing promos in the 90’s. I also think this is a 2 pronged “retirement.” Why? With more young talent being called up and signed (see also Steen) I’m betting Santino was given a list of options. Last week he was talking about his versatility within WWE. Why? Because it was fresh off a meeting a WWE HQ. Thats why. Can anyone guess the topic? Right. All the chips have been put into place for a while now. This is the start of a new era….we’re on the start of the new time for WWE. Santino will be a road agent as well (perfect job for him) and probably get into some role on RAW or Smackdown as he hinted at last week. I think he fit in perfectly as an “assistant” to whomever they go with as a Raw GM. It ‘ll be hilarious too. New signees, more NXT coming up, budget cuts, and the return of yet another superstar. Yes I know. :) Stay Tuned.

      I think He could be the next GM of Friday Night Smackdown.. But if WWE gives anyone the GM Role again they need to do it like the Eric Bischoff and Stephanie McMahon GM Roles. Giving them full power (on TV) to please the boss.
