I think D-Lo is much more entertaining with the advent of Theodore Long, but he really needs some new ring attire and REALLY REALLY needs to get in shape. One week D-Lo wrestled in his gangsta gear and the next he went back to the drab black singlet. Why? Can't they get this guy some ring gear that goes beyond the "Velocity jobber" look?
I'm never going to care about the guy until he looks like something other than a pathetic slob. You would think being in the WWE and on TV each week would make you work out every now and then to get rid of your man-boobs and put some muscle definition in your legs. Not so with D-Lo. Last night, each time he was in a pinning predicament, his legs were jiggling around like Jell-O.
And the worst part of the whole thing: he needs to spend some time in the tanning bed. He's supposed to be the racism guy and he's paler than his manager and Maven! Batista's browner than D-Lo!

I agree on all points, especially the ring attire. That attire does not flatter him at all. It is time for a serious change in attire for him. I get the feeling that D'Lo will become a guilty pleasure if he totally goes over the top with his antics.

He should change his entrance theme.

The non-fan question that usually follows a D'Lo segment lately, in my house, has been: is he even black? A comment I've not heard from non-fans since the dawn of the Akeem gimmick.

As far as becoming generically jacked...May be better for him to stay flabby if he can do it without getting winded easily. The last thing you need to do is become a gym rat in a sea of Triple H's, Steiner's, and Batista's because you're not winning that battle. Whatever one can do to distinguish oneself one ought to do. I mean, isn't that how Bubba stays over?

Wow, I haven't thought about "the human easter egg" in a long time.

There is some promise with Teddy Long doing the talking, but I agree...he needs to hit the gym a bit and get some new ring attire.

Though I'm not sure if anything would look good on D'Lo and still go with the gimmick...

Any suggestions?

Hey, I'm glad that the guy lost the weight that he already has. If you remember what he was like back with the Nation a few years ago, you'd know that he looks good now.

As far as whether or not he's black, don't ask me about that yet. I'm still working on figuring out Marc Mero.

D'Lo is definitely Black. I once lost a five-dollar bet thinking Marc Mero (real name: Marc Merowitz) was Black too though.

D'Lo had a period of hitting the gym and looking pretty good. His reward? Lo'Down, followed by nothing. But I agree, he either needs to get in better shape, really blimp up again, or go Road Dogg style and where an outfit that will cover him up better.

He also hasn't pulled out the standing flourished leg drop lately, or the head bob. That's wack.
