    JTG is face again? i kinda liked his “haters gonna hate” heel gimmick

  • Gesni1Rules

     Alright. I’m definitely interested in Damien Sandow’s character! Whether he’s a heel or not, I’m gonna cheer for him. He brings a lot of points about people in today’s world. The thing I don’t like though is: ANOTHER HEEL?! No offense but really? Every debuting Superstar these days are heel besides Ryback/Skip and Brodus Clay (If you even count him). First Lord Tensai, now Damien Sandow, then I bet $20 that when Dean Ambrose makes his debut, he’s gonna be a heel.

    • LittleJimmyGotGot

      Cry everybody a river, that’s ONLY 2 heels that debuted and I hope Ambrose comes in as one to. I bet u want another happy go lucky Cena character

      • Gesni1Rules

         No I don’t. To be completely honest with you, most of my favorite superstars today like Christian, Dolph Ziggler, Daniel Bryan and Drew McIntyre are heels. I have nothing against heels, and I actually like them. You definitely do not know me or my opinions very well since I JUST started commenting today. So like The Rock says, I suggest you know your damn role, and shut your damn mouth.

        • Jager1017

          everyone here is always ready to jump all over someone for the stupidest reasons. not a rock fan, but i agree with you on liking heels. come on, who liked luke throughout star wars? lol welcome to sescoops

          • Craig DeBoard

            Everyone liked Luke. Then we all grew up. Then we liked Vader. Then we hit middle age. Now we just like all of it, period. Can’t stand it when people try to pretend they don’t currently, or didn’t in the past, cheer for the good guy, as if saving face on the internet is important or some crap.

          • Illmatic

            i hated Luke.  I wanted Boba Fett to waste them all and then waste Vader.

          • Gesni1Rules

             Thanks Jager! I’m happy to be here!

      • Craig DeBoard

        I about said the same thing. He complains about everyone coming in being heel, yet only lists two heels and also lists two faces. LOL! *facepalm*

        WWE needs good heels right now. The heels are what make the show. They give the face someone to go against. Every face should have at least two heels to compete against. 

        • DOOOSHBAG

           LESNAR has returned as a HEEL. and ADR and Y2J and TENSAI and KANE and D bryan and HENRY and ZIGGLER and SWAGGER.
          wwe is at a good place right now
          they need to rebuild the TAG TEAM division a little may be bring back TLC TAG TEAM matches

    • BrahmaBullRKO

      You’re right, but with the gimmick he has in FCW, Dean Ambrose just HAS to be a heel. When Seth Rollins and Kassius Ohno make their way to RAW/SD, I guarantee they will both be babyfaces.

      • Gesni1Rules

         I definitely agree with you there! I have a good feeling when Dean debuts, I’m gonna be cheering for him every single time. Lol.

    • TotalNonstopAddict

      His points are valid but still, another “I’m rich and educated, I’m better than you, you’re all tramps” guy? How many times has it been done?

  • Waldo

    so cool seeing all the FCW people come up, next is Ambrose then Rollins, Steamboat, Woods, Harris and many other who deserve it 

    • Spiledrive Crawford

      There are people in FCW in deserve to be called up before Woods and Steamboat and those people are Bo Rotundo, Antonio Cesaro, Kassius Ohno, for Superstars and Audrey Marie, Britany Knight, Shaul Guerrero, Sofia Cortez & Tenielle Tayla for Divas.

  • pwnez

    Is it just me or does Damien Sandow’s avatar look like Daniel bryan with a black beard?

    • Fckyoujohncena

      He looks like Khal Drogo from Game of Thrones.

  • Brian Clark

    Why not just beg for Shad Gaspard and DH Smith to come back so we can have a true Tag division. I swear I can find toddlers who can make better characters then WWE’s Creative Team.

    • Jeremy Gordon

       No you can’t.

      • IKeepsit100

         I’m betting it’s possible…

      • Brian Clark

        Yes, I can.

  • Jeremy Gordon

    I love when people who have never been creative in their life think they know more than the people actually in the business.

    • Craig DeBoard


  • Jenks

    Start of the end of the Bellas apparently. 

    • Franll2507

      yup. Their contract expires April 30th and rumor is they won’t re-sign

  • fan

    I was at Raw. Sandow was very sloppy it looked like with his wrestling.

  • cenasucks

    i hate that when ever a new comer comes to the wwe the wwe puts the new comer up against someone awful like when lord tensai had to fight A-Ry

  • wwetnadudez

    Jw..isn’t SD typically in the 2.0 area for ratings? Mmm, maybe they want to catch up with IW.
