-There have been discussions about having Umaga cut his own promos in the future. The buzz backstage is that they are planning to reveal that he can speak English soon.
Think I'll have a wank over these tomorrow.
LOLZ! I can't wait to hear this! Although I love the jibberish, the guy deserves it. One of the hardest working guys in the WWE and I really hope they give him a world title run at some point. Probably one of the best pure gimmicks in a long time, and if Khali can have a 63 day title run, Umaga certainly deserves a shot a carrying a brand.
There is one GLARING diffrence between Khali and Umaga.......UMAGA CAN WRESTLE! Umaga is one of the best wrestlers WWE he has. He and Jeff Hardy can constantly put on good matches, Umaga and John Cena put on good matches, for that matter Umaga and anybody can. I would love to see him with a title run. He is awesome.
He doesn't put on good matches; Most now are not even "matches"... And that's saying something, considering half of them have been against Cena or Jeff.
You must be joking. He's worked well with everyone. He knows exactly what to do to make his opponents look good (which is his role in the long run), and pulled some AMAZING matches out of Jeff and Cena, among others, guys who have been criticized a lot in the past for their work. Umaga is one of the best wrestlers in WWE right now
You're the one that's joking; The reason they put him in several against the same guys (including more than 1 run against Jeff, with months in between), is b/c he needs to face guys who know how to work him. The Ebert thumbs-up & Rikishi butt-bump do not a wrestler make.... Nor do they an untalented gimmick hide. (Note I said "Gimmick"... Was just watching 3MW on DVD, & they were decent.... Literally couldn't believe it was the same guy.)
I don't understand. His move set isn't limited. He draws great reactions from the crowd. He's athletic (very much so for a bigger man), and he's worked well with everyone (and don't tell me it's Jeff "get all my spots in" Hardy and John Cena who make him look good... I like Cena but I'm the first to admit that he needs a good wrestler to carry him in a lot of cases... And Despite working with HBK, Triple H, Edge, etc... the consensus will normally be that his best matches were against Umaga). The butt-bump and the Samoan Spike are original and innovative moves too...
He gets decent reactions, but far less than he did at the start pf the gimmick... And mainly sarcasm, laughing, etc. He's not very athletic, even for a "bigger man". Cena's best matches were never against Umaga; More the other way around. The butt-bump was, as I said, Rikishi's first (if not someone else's before), & the "spike" isn't evena wrestling maneuver, nor is it painful. (Unless I count again my stomach hurting from laughing... During the last DX reunion setup, HBK took it in a house show near here, & flopped electro-shock-style all over the ring... Finally, someone treated it as the joke it was.)
