- SmackDown General Manager Booker T is currently out of action after having elbow surgery that we noted last week. Booker suffered a torn triceps and had to have the surgery after getting an elbow infection. Because of his absence, the feud with Teddy Long has been put on hold. The injury was described as a freak injury and not ring related. He's expected back on TV around the end of this month.

- WWE officials in developmental have told Sami Zayn, the former El Generico, to slow down and not do so many high spots. The feeling is that he's really good, very intelligent and do

So they want him to dumb down his performance? That's typical WWE for you.

WWE dumbs down the performance of all their in-ring employees for the sake of protecting them from possible injury, as in they do it to prevent possible cash-cows or potential draws from getting put on the shelf.

They clearly enjoy his work, but i can understand where they come from. Having an entire match of spots is only going to wear a talent down especially if they are potentially repeating the same match formula over a year on the WWE schedule.

They probably want him to slow it down so when he does get called up, he can save bigger spots for higher profile Raws and PPVs.

I think it's also for injury protection. Also, it adds to their character if they pull out a new move every now and then at a PPV event.

 

They probably want him to slow it down so when he does get called up, he can save bigger spots for higher profile Raws and PPVs.

 

I agree with statement, as well as the potential that he may have a higher risk of injury doing spots every week, throughout all of his matches,

They don't want him injured so early on in his WWE Career and I can understand that. Save the highspots for his bigger profile matches.

I love the El Generico act. Have for a long time, just like others do... You know DAMN WELL the WWE would ruin it in a few short weeks by lumping him with Khali, Santino, Hornswoggle and the rest of that kooky, hot garbage at the bottom of the food chain. They LOOOOOVE to ruin shit at Stamford, y'know... So, although I believe the gimmick COULD work--they're going with "Sami Zayn" instead. Fine, I guess...BUT, stop asking him to underperform for his own sake. His in-ring creativity is time-tested, perfected, and extremely innovative (not to mention entertaining as hell.) Instead, challenge the NXT roster to step their game up and meet his level rather than asking him to dumb it down.

Don't *censored*ing ruin him.

......Please?

doesn't WWE Choreograph there matches ahead of time, they tell the guys what to do so why are they telling Zayn to slow down if they told him to do the spots in the first place? Or am I just missing it

Also it's simply the WWE wrestling style.

I think WWE choreograph the big spots and the finish of a match, but the wrestlers themselve improvise everything else on the fly.

1) High spots DO NOT make a good wrestler.

2) Don't mix slowing down and dumbing down. They're not the same at all.

3) The WWE realizes his potential already, and they appreciate his mic and ring work. They're not gonna completely eliminate his high spots; they may save them for matches of a higher caliber.

 

What exactly is the problem here?

No idea, people are making a big deal over nothing. It's no secret that the WWE slows down peoples movesets. They did it with PAC, Sin Cara and Rollins. Zayn will still be entertaining as normal and the big spots will be a pleasant surprise.

I wonder if he will do his Tornado DDT through the corner in WWE. I absolutely LOVE that move.
