Why Vince Is Pushing Fandango, Jericho and Henry’s WWE Futures

Posted by Matt Boone April 2, 2013 9 Comments

- Fandango is getting a spot on WrestleMania 29 because the character is Vince McMahon’s new pet project. Vince is said to be a big fan of the gimmick and the arrogance that comes with it. The idea at WrestleMania 29 is for Chris Jericho to make the Fandango character stronger. Vince is really behind the success of Fandango.

Regarding Jericho’s WWE status, the two sides are talking about what he will be doing with them in the future. He was originally scheduled to finish up at WrestleMania. The belief within WWE is that Jericho and WWE will continue to have a part-time relationship.

– There has also been talk about Mark Henry leaving WWE after WrestleMania 29. Word now is that WWE and Henry are on the same page. Officials are very happy with Henry’s work since returning and he will most likely staying with the company.

      on a long term, i hope Johnny Fandango Curtis and Dean Ambrose will team up as two crazy dudes.,, like mankinds or cody-with-masks… or even much more boogeyman crazy – worth it!

      Fandango is Vince’s new favorite project…let’s see how long this lasts. I believe the same thing was said about Drew Mcyntire. Vince is too fickle these days and gets bored easily with some of these gimmicks. Remember when Tensai beat Cena and Punk? Neither do I.

        It was the same with McIntyre, and now he’s part of the 3MB. Look at how well that worked.

      Whoah, wait a minute. The dirtsheets were saying that WWE management were down on Fandango, and that he was never actually going to make his wrestling debut?

      Could’ve fooled me.

      Oh, and that’s good news about Mark Henry. Assuming it’s true.

        I had heard Vince was tired of the gimmick, and then they come out and say he’s high on it again. WWE writers give me whiplash.

      It only took 12 seasons for Vince to come up with a “Dancing With The Stars” gimmick, damn he’s a frickin’ genius.

      Well the character of Fandango may be getting over with the name thing, but him in the ring is a different story. Jericho will make him look like a million bucks at Wrestlemania, but how will he do with others? So far, all we’ve seen is some punches and he leg drop, and that’s really not that impressive to me.

      WWE needs better talent I believe TNA has better talent then WWE right now WWE is too damn PG and is goin to be more PG if Cena wins at Wrestlemania

      If he wants arrogance, let Jericho go back to the way he was when he first debuted. He was plenty arrogant. I don’t know what it is, I just can’t stand Fandango. I personally think the gimmick is stupid, and no one, let alone this future mid carder deserves their first match to be at WM.
