Mid-Card Mafia is the attempt of Tyler Reks and his running buddies (Curt Hawkins, Drew MacIntyre and Tyson Kidd) to attract notice like Zack Ryder famously did this year, by reaching outside the bounds of WWE and appealing to people over Youtube. Unlike Ryder, who did silly skits with his friends and family, Reks has taken it upon himself to become a cartoonist, saying he learned how to do it in a week. And if that's all the time he's had to study it, he's not doing half-bad!
This reminds me of Sunday Night Heat, towards the end of its run, where Raven wouldn't have anything relevant to do, so he'd just have some fun and create his own angle that would unfold from week-to-week. I kinda wish they'd do the same thing with these guys and let them run roughshod over WWE Superstars as a Mid-Card Mafia stable.
As for the cartoon itself, it's decent. It's not GREAT, but it's not offensively terrible. Like I said in the other thread, Reks is at least building a good future for himself in animation if he ever decides to leave the business...or if he's ever future endeavored.
The funniest thing about this is the name, though. Then again, the name "Jobber Brigade" wouldn't be as attractive, would it?
I liked it too. And yes, I 100% agree with the Mid-Card Mafia's assertion that all this time given to Mitchell Cole could be better used on guys like Tyler Reks (and especially Drew McIntyre and Tyson Kidd), or really, just about anyone else.

Here is a reprint of my highly acclaimed third slash opinion piece, hopefully in the correct forum this time (it was a draw between here and guest column feedback, so I chose here. Yay). Enjoy! /////// ... TIL IT'S RAW Hi.
