I don't mind it, but it's just weird seeing him not and having them refer to him as Colt Cabana. It's like seeing CM Punk being brought up to ECW and then calling him something completely different. What I did like about it though was the way they pretty much kept the essence of Colt by still allowing his goofy in-ring style and his comedy promo's. I really hope he does get a fair crack of the whip because he really could become extremely popular with the kids.
Now one thing I do have a problem with and it's more aimed at the WWE Creative lot but does involve Colt is, what is the point in changing their gimmicks when bringing them upto the roster? Colt made his debut back in April 07 as Colt 'Boom Boom' Cabana and was just called up this month, so that's what 16 months there abouts. Why after 16 successful months call him up and then change what he was doing that got him called up in the firs place? Yes it's only a name change, but there's been guys who have done well with one gimmick in developmental yet bombed when they were brought up because they were told to change their gimmick
Now I understand that WWE wants to make their own stars, but they kept Punk the way he was, so why not Colt? By keeping him as what everybody knew him as, could they not have gained some extra viewers, as let's face it we didn't it was Colt when we read the spoilers and saw Scotty Goldman.
