    I always liked The Naturals, shame Andy Douglas retired.

    No, Jimbo is right. WWE is desperate to get 18+ to cheer for Cena. That’s the reason they put Cena to call Eve a “hoeski” and humiliate her with things like “I’m disease-free”. They want people to cheer him, so they put Zack Ryder as the pal of the “all I do is the right thing cause I’m the good-hearted, american hero any kid loves” guy. Is not Cena’s fault, is the creative decision to get advantage of peoples fault’s and popularity…

    @Jimbo

    WWE capitalized on Ryder with the WWE’s own youtube channel..

  • Jimbo

    Yeah, it’s not Cena’s fault, but it is WWE’s fault. We were all foolish to think he was going to get a legitimate shot. Instead, WWE sought to capitalize on Ryder’s popularity by making him Cena’s buddy. WWE is desperate to get the 18+ crowd to like Cena.

    Worst thing to happen to Ryder was getting pulled into Cena’s undertow. No, I’m not blaming Cena, but it’s pretty obvious that Ryder became nothing more than collateral damage to the Cena machine, just like Kane. Let’s see if his career can recover to where he is a wrestler again, and not just a plot device.

    Man I miss The Naturals.

    None of us understand the Ryder situation. When you look at the last 12 months of his career it’s quite the up and down ride. Youtube sensation leads to him finally getting a spot to build his character, starts getting regular TV time, gets numerous chants at MSG when he’s not even on the card, character peaks as the weeks go one as he lost the underdog momentum when he beat Ziggler and couldn’t find the next level. Now he’s getting butchered by creative who seems to have no idea what to do with him. Worst thing to happen to Ryder was winning the US title. Ryder’s character would’ve been better with him always chasing the big win rather then actually receiving it.
