So WWE starts these very intriguing, well-produced promos for O'Haire's redebut just after the Royal Rumble. People (well, Internet fans at least) immediately get talking about the potential of the gimmick and are interested in his first appearance.

Fast forward a month. O'Haire has still not appeared on TV, but is at least wrestling in dark matches before RAW cards.

Then, O'Haire is on SmackDown for two weeks, advising Brian Kendrick. Still no in-ring appearances, just backstage skits.

And now...nothing. I haven't even seen an O'Haire promo in at least a few weeks. What's the freakin' holdup? Is O'Haire so green in the ring that WWE is holding him back in a Nathan Jones-esque manner? I seem to recall that he was pretty decent back in WCW, so he couldn't have regressed THAT much.

Last I read on 1Wrestling is that they were shooting new promos for him but I have yet to see them, and i also wonder when he will be in the ring. I saw him in Washington D.C. do a RAW dark match and then the next night he was on Smackdown. I guess WWE has a hard time keeping up wiht the whole brand split thing.

He just had a promo this week on Smackdown. It was pretty lame (Eat what you want? Come on!). And a few weeks ago he convinced Dawn to go take her shirt off (in a dual promotial move for Girls Gone Wild and Playboy).

I think the problem with it, is that, it hasn't really translated well live. It's cool in the promos, but then, when they show him doing the gimmick on Smackdown it seems...lame?

The issue is that O'Haire's gimmick works great in vignettes, but unless they are going to give him a Flock-like stable, I can't see this working in the ring. Or if someone is going to take exception to his "evil influences" and start a fued with him that might work.

My guess is that WWE just realized this and don't have a clue about what to do with him.

I'll keep that in mind. Since I'm just starting the puro thing, I'm starting out with the well known talent like Kong and Nakano and Yoshida. Then, I'll work my way deeper. So far, it's going smooth. Thanks for the recommendation. Ringmistress
