And I think AmDrag is going to be OK, they're just trying to build up a feud between him & Barrett. Least I hope so.
They do this to JR periodically. Bring him out and bury him until they fire him or he quits. I don't know why Vince does it, but this isn't the first time.
The Cole character needs to go. He's bearable if he's just calling matches and not injecting himself into every single thing and burying everybody but Miz. It's run its course, it's going to be detrimental to future stars in the long run to have them buried weekly on commentary, and it's getting to the point where everybody
is complaining about it. It's turn the channel heat, if there ever was such a thing...
As far as my comment on Danielson, that was more about what they've done with him. He's been buried, steadily, for two years. He starts in the company with a long losing streak, he's buried by Cole on a weekly basis to the point that people are brainwashed into starting "boring" chants during his matches now (happened during Summerslam, on what was by far the best match to that point in the show). That's Vince's attitude, and the company's attitude: he's an indy geek and that's all he'll ever be, because he isn't their
product. I think his name is even a rib on him.
The end goal of all this isn't going to be to get him over. Barrett's their long term star. (In their eyes) He can talk, he's big, he has the look. Whereas Bryan's a goofy vegan midget who has no personality and could never possibly be a star in the "big leagues". How do I know that's what they think? Because they say it every single week on commentary.
