    Obviously one ot the top ECW wrestlers. Had a great run at the rumble, and certainly produced entertaing moves. Current tag champ with The Miz, which I think has worked rather well so far.
    I would like to see him get a big push, bbut no so sure he has the body size to go all the way to the top. I personally think he is one of the better heals going around at the moment. What do you guys think. Is he good or shite in your opinions?

    ECW championship is one thing. I was meaning more of a push as the John Morrison persona right up to the heights of Orton, Cena, HBK, HHH. Right at the top level.

    He's nowhere close to any of them. Maybe US/IC Title worthy (again) though.

    Needs a bit more improvement on the mic for mine, seems a bit forced at times, even though his catchphrases are the things that stay in your head for days :D:D

    Has the look just needs to develop another move or two and improve his mic skills. Will never get to HBK's heights but wouldnt surprise me if he becomes champion one day (and ECW champion doesnt count).

    I like him as a wrestler, but does he come off as laconic to anyone else, or is it just me?

    He's pretty good the question is can he handle a big feud and make people want to watch his matches? His feud with Punk was pretty good. In the ring he's pretty good and if they give him enough big matches he will improve.

    He is a gun. Some of the moves he does are unbelievable, i doubt if there is more than a couple people in WWE who could do them.

    I saw him do a split legged corkscrew moonsault once, it was outstanding.

    He is the sort of guy that the WWE should be pushing.

    In Ring: B-
    Mic Skillz: B (I remember him at the announce table with Miz totally ripping on him. It was quite funny)
    Charisma: B-

    Look: A++++++++++

    I feel dirty after that, but gee, has there ever been a better looking bloke in the company. I think not.

    Now to go look at some hot chicks to feel like a man again.

    :eek: I meant B+

    His in-ring is good. Especially his match with Punk for the ECW Title at Vengance I think it was where he won the title with that sick finisher off the second rope.
