    I thought he was just being written out of storylines because NXT brass realized he was terrible compared to… everyone else.

      Not everyone, Bull and CJ are right around his level

    Pray for Mojo….

    (Can’t believe I got to quote that twice in two days [did it yesterday for JoJo]). 😉

      But who will pray for Mojo Jojo?

    This is a classic case of creative going, “hmmm, this guy looks like he could be a sadistic monster heel…but let’s make him a plucky baby face instead.” If it were the 1980s, he could’ve easily gotten over with a Russian gimmick. I don’t want to hate this guy, but the gimmick is all wrong for him. Hopefully he comes back repackaged as a heel.

    P.S. No wrestler should look that smug in a roster photo unless that’s his assigned gimmick. I would never get behind a character with that dumbass smile on his face.

      I think a few things need to be done to help Mojo.

      1) Give him plenty of time off camera, but while he’s injured have someone help him develop an on-screen personality.
      2) Get him some new trunks, or at least tell him to stop tucking in the white t-shirt. My wife thought he looked like a fat guy at a public pool.
      3) Give him a legitimately interesting part in a feud. I’d like to see him come back in a while and start giving Bull Dempsey unnecessary assists to win matches. Mojo can then start taunting Bull with the idea that Bull hasn’t won a match in x weeks without his help.

      He’s not the best talent, but there is plenty to work with if given the time and training.

    Dixie can’t wait that long.

    Odd he’s still kept to this awful gimmick, they were pretty quick to change TJ Parker into a heel when it wasnt working.

    • LandDolphinMan

      I think they actually tried this, but no one really noticed because he was so one-dimensional you can’t tell. During his feud with Dempsey I thought they pulled a heel turn — then he was still Mojo — but frowning.

    Don’t worry about your spot. Please take your time getting healthy. Take as much time as you need. A month. Two months. A year. Don’t rush it.

    Please, PLEASE don’t rush.

    Seriously, I’m good with a year.
