Unfortunately in WWE, that kind of stuff will get you punished.
There was a note on Funkasaurus in there too.
@ Funkasaurus being left off TV. Batista's good enough to main event for 5 years, but Brodus (who IMO works really well for a big man) isn't good enough for freakin' Smackdown?
And I don't know that I was necessarily ever a huge fan of Ryder's character, but I respected the hell out of him & that made me like it more. I don't think I was ever going to buy a Zack Ryder shirt, headband or whatever, but I've turned into a fan of his. At least, before they made him look like a complete bitch in this Kane/Cena/Eve/Zack story...
