Does anyone who watches OVW have an update on Matt Morgan? I know Jim Ross has said he is a future big time star and others have spoke highly of his potential to be a great big man. Has anyone seen the progress being made?
He was OVW champ for a good number of months, but just lost the title in a match where he said he'd leave OVW if he lost. Maybe he's getting promoted soon?
But anyway, he's way improved over when he was in WWE this time last year, but he still could use some more experience. I saw him break out a Styles Clash in a match against Matt Cappotelli, so he's at least expanding his moveset.
I've always liked Matt and think he has progressed very well since first starting in OVW a while back. Cornette seems high on him as well.
Keep in mind that his time in WWE programming was pretty tentative. He never left OVW in the first place when they brought him up, and his return just showed that Cornette was right in suggesting he stay in OVW longer.
He's a big guy, but can move has a lot of charisma. No, you won't be seeing him do moonsaults anytime soon, but he's made for a fine heel in OVW over the summer and into this fall. As a matter of fact, he just lost the OVW championship belt in a "loser leaves OVW for good" match on television this weekend, so it would appear that he's on his way back up.
If WWE works him right (yeah, I know, fat chance) he'll do well. I don't have any complaints about the guy; but like I said, I've never really had a problem with him in the first place. So keep that in mind with my opinion above.
It's rather disappointing that WCW didn't take Bobby Heenan's comment: "Yeah, but WHOSE SIDE IS HE ON?" and run with it. "Heenan, how did you know he was going to betray us, anyway? Are you part of the nWo?
