"WWE seems to be unhappy with Rhyno and doesnt seem that they will be putting him in any meaningful role for him on SmackDown! The main reason seems to be that, in a New York house show a couple of weeks back where Vince McMahon hated his match against Tajiri and embarrassed him in front of the crowd by ending the match telling both stars to take a hike."

Here's an idea ... how about using him as the man-beast heel like he's supposed to be used. So they'll use a no-talent bum like John Heidenreich, but are down on Rhyno? Give me a break.

I agree with you, except Rhyno is pretty short compared to the other "monster" type guys. Granted, he looks all the more powerful to be that thick for his height, but Heidenreich at least is a tall guy (not that I'm making a defense here, just trying to find some justification on WWE's part).

Maybe they can shift him to RAW for a change of pace?

This is the same company that doesn't use RVD and Booker T to their full potential, remember?

Personally, I like John Hnnrnnr. Sure he's big and yells a lot, but that whole "Little Johnny" angle has me curious enough to watch.

We've seen Hnnrnnr what, twice? Just because a coupla guys sa he worse than Nathan Jones doesn't mean he's the anti-Christ. From what I've seen he's got the big man basics down pat, which is already one up on Jones and Morgan. And as Tod said, his angle's at least interesting.

Oh, and Rhyno was at his best when talking about making guys shit their own faces and whatnot. There's pretty much no chance of getting THAT Terry Gerin any time soon though.

The funny thing is that when this newsbit first showed up, it was

"People are unsure why Rhyno isn't being pushed more. There was that incident at Nassau a while back, but we don't know if it's a link."

and now it's

"Rhyno's being punished because of what happened at Nassau"

Knowing nothing inside, I don't figure that WWE is any more unhappy with Rhyno than say Sean O'Haire. They're just guys they don't have ideas for right now.

Maybe if Tajiri, his opponent in the match, wasn't Cruiserweight Champion with two guys brought in just to strength him, I could believe it. I think it's just people grasping for straws (or, to continue a theme, finding a way to make something seem more insidious than it really is)

There's different from "having nothing to do" and "being punished" - the first one has you beating Kidman on Velocity, the second one has you losing to Funaki.

Don't mean to jack this thread(apologies) but, does Rhyno put vaseline in his hair? Why does it look like it is always wet, but doesn't drip. Pretty gross.

Hehehehe - Thats so true!

Maybe he eats lots of marrowbone jelly dog food and so has a really glossy coat

It's when you see people like Rhyno and RVD being wasted that that you fondly remember the Hardcore Title

Rhyno hasn't had a real "something to do" in a long time, even while he was on Smackdown. He was either tagging with Benoit or wrestling in the US Championship 4-way - only to provide them with a fourth body.

Rhyno IS wrestling in dark matches on Smackdown shows each Tuesday, and the odd Velocity match. Compare that to before the Nassau incident and it does appear to be a pattern of "punishment."

Poor Rhyno...And the other 27 SD Mid cards.

But Tajiri..:(....WWe has shown he can easily draw heat as a heel or face time and time again....Even after Torrie!. Tajiri is my all time favorite cruiseweight.

That sounds like an angle. Frankly, I liked Rhyno best when he was a non-verbal animal. Remember Stephanie siccing him on face Jericho a few eons ago? He stood there nodding and grinning rapaciously as if he meant to eat the guy raw instead of pinning him. He made a real impression on me at the time.

Then, of course, he got the neck problem, and the bumbling interviews he did while he was out blew the monster persona out of the water. It's been hard to take him seriously since, especially since there's been almost no effort to rebuild him.

Personally I like how his hair is all greasy and falls in his face. Kinda like Aragorn, who washed his hair ONCE at Rivendale and hasn't taken a bath since.

We haven't heard rumors of Rhyno doing anything to upset management...in fact I've never heard news of Rhyno causing trouble.

It's a shame that Rhyno can't be put onto Team Lesnar. Not only would that make Brock look taller, but he could continue his lingering antagonism with Angle and Benoit.

I have no idea if he's being punished, but he's definitely being wasted. You're telling me no crusierweight could hire this guy as a bodyguard? Tajiri? Matt Hardy?

Can we boycot WWE. I mean they seem to lost any idea how to do things. I mean they have these great wrestler that can bring in the fans, but don't use them. I like Rhyno he is good and he has work at getting better on the mic. I wish there was something else out there that free.

I don't think it's a big surprise he's not as successful without Paul E. vouching for him, piledriving valets through tables, or saying f*** every five seconds...

He was huge over right before he took time off for his neck. The Alliance kicked him out, and he looked like he was going to go off & GOREGOREGORE~! everyone, and the crowd was super into it. He was still over when he came back, but they never had him do anything significant.

Rhyno's biggest problem, I think, is that with a fused neck, he can no longer do what made him popular in the first place: Running headfirst very hard into almost anything.

Just wait..
Heyman might not be booking Smackdown, but you know the moment he can he will give Rhyno a verbal onscreen blowjob..
And I came to realise what Paul rants about, people care about..
This man made it look like Jones and Morgan were these grizzled dangerous veterans mofos!!! And I was -almost- scared of them..
He can do the same for Rhyno.

I thought that was what made Stasiak popular...Or at least came the closest.

I was thinking during the match that the name is really starting to handicap the guy. At first he made little noise and didn't seem to have much staying power. He was even suspended not long after his debut.
