    Maybe WWE will end up releasing big Zeke, because he hasn’t done anything since he lost the IC title to Cody.

    I just checked pics of that guy, and as Item said, he really looks like Ezekiel Jackson…. Whay would wwe wanna have two guys that look so alike??, maybe they want to turn them into a tag team and pretend they are brothers??? or something…. i hope this guy at least wrestles a bit more, but seeing that he squashes ppl, i really doubt it.

    LOL Heavily muscled guy who squashed people (IE has very short matches). Gee….have we seen that before, or is this a new direction for WWE?

    “He is a heavily muscled wrestler with a mohawk who often squashes his opposition in matches.”

    He’ll fit right in the WWE.

    Man I really hope they air those awesome 90 shows on the new network!
