The SmarKow Says:

Does anybody else think this mofo is packin SERIOUS mic skills? He seemed pretty at ease on the mic which is amazing considering the wrestlers who've been "in the big leagues" for a long time with no real mic skill. I've heard a lot of good about his ring action too. I hope this guy gets a shot.

On a lighter thought, in a perfect world he could face Lash, heel Rock, and Honky Tonk Man in a sideburns showdown.

Isn't this guy like some kind of former male model or bodybuilder? I swear I've heard his name and seen him before. I think he's also married to some fitness model girl too.

I'm fairly certain that Rico Constantino was a contestant on American Gladiators back in the mid-90s. Now THAT was a show that kicked ass back in its day.

Not only did he win the show, but for the last few (fairly dismal) seasons, he was one of the gladiators.

Rico doesn't have a whole lot of time left (he's what, 40?), but I've heard only good things about his ring work, so I'm happy to see him.

Frankly, I could do without all 3 of 'em. They are painful to listen to during their promos (Funaki has better mic skills), their gimmick died 4 years ago when the DOA began carrying Too Much piggyback on their cycles, and who the hell is a tag team supposed to wrestle against these days anyway?

Yeah, the "Ambiguously Gay Duo" shit is wearing REAL thin, but I still think Rico has some skills. Maybe they should put some names into the Random Tag Team Generator (tm, uh, that guy, what was his name again?) and let Rico do with two random guys what Michael hayes did with the Hardys. Well, not the whole "angst-filled youth" thing, but something unique. Heck, sign Norman Smiley, team him up with William Regal and have Rico (with a new gimmick by this point) manage them.

You're gone, used to be the Don Juan

Billy and Chuck can go to Hell, but Rico actually works well in his gimmick. He's not gay or anything, just a pretty boy. That works well, I think-and his little speech on SmackDown put the other four guys in the skit to shame.

I really dug Chuck's "Don't be late" line in a "mess-with-Al-Snow's-head" kinda way. It wasn't said in an over the top flamboyant manner, which would have made it pretty ridiculous.

    He's not gay or anything, just a pretty boy

I'm not sure where you get that from, but I think it's pretty obvious the vibe/stereotype that Rico is portraying (stylist, concerned w/ hair & clothing appearances), and it's not "pretty boy".

It's kind of hard to buy into Rico being a "pretty boy" OR gay when he's wearing John Sebastian's old Woodstock sideburns.

There's no "stylist" on god's green earth who would look like that.

Have you seen him checking out guys or being infatuated with his tag partner a la Billy and Chuck? Nope, meaning he could work as just a pretty boy if they decided to split him off from the AGD.

Chuck & Billy haven't checked out other guys either. And as for being infatuated w/ each other, you could always chalk that up to being clueless. They've patted each other on the ass on occasion, but plenty of other sports' athletes do the same. They haven't really been flamboyant, so you could say C&B are just pretty boys, as well ("Chicks dig us!").

The first time we saw Rico on WWF TV, he was all like (paraphrasing from memory) "Look at your tights. Those colors just clash! And that hair!"

I'm sure he could work as a pretty boy, but it was pretty clear they were going for the gay stylist vibe at the beginning.

If I recall correctly, Rico was a police officer before gaining fame with the American Gladiators, so he's no spring chicken. He does have some good moves in the ring, and should eventually get a run in the ring before things are said and done.

With the WWF's literal interpretation of peoples past policy just be glad they didn't make him a full on Faarooq Asaad style gladiator and lump him in with the AGD .

Doubly sad, given that Stu is a virtual lock for a future entry. I can't believe it's almost been ten years.
