Originally posted by ParagonOfVirtueHaving followed nothing on the indy scene, what's the deal with the Human Tornado anyway? I saw a music video compilation of his and he was hilarious and had some good moves..why isn't he getting picked up by at least TNA or ROH? Is it his sloppiness, and/or is he just too new on the scene?
Probably because he's still new and hasn't garnered alot of popularity out of SoCal (although the video is obviously helping). The majority of that footage was from the early part of his rookie year last year. So this is only his second year more or less on the scene since graduating from the RevPro Rudos Dojo. Give him maybe another year or two (or maybe even lesS), you'll start seeing more of him.

I think it was Orlando, but Wade wasn't 100% for sure.
I also think the talk about a "Dave Chappelle gimmick" is probably overblown. Wade told a similar story about Orlando telling Vince about Eddie Murphy on SNL and how Orlando wanted to grow out his hair to get "Buckwheat" chants or something. It could just be a case like that, where there's some aspect to the show or to a character that Orlando (or whoever) wants to adopt. But nobody would say Orlando has a Buckwheat gimmick or an Eddie Murphy gimmick because of his hair, even though that was apparently his inspiration.
I went ahead and read that article (on the job, I might add) and it was a good read. I'm definitely looking forward to Mick's next book and it's nice to see that he does have a life after pro wrestling.
