David Flair is supposedly pretty good now, for what that's worth.
Also, that powerslam is Goldust's new finisher! (laughs) Seriously...it is.
As for Steven Richards, he's exactly where he should be. The guy has some talent, he makes me laugh with his craziness, but he shouldn't be any higher than he is. His character just isn't strong enough for it...that and he's such an injury risk.
I've like Richards lately too. I mean if ANYONE but Goldust had beat Richards I wouldn't hear any complaints. If Richards beat RVD, "Man, Richards ain't on RVD's level!" Richards beats Jeff, "There went Jeff's push!" Richards beats Booker, "WHY, WHY, WHY!? I mean BOOKER!? He beat BOOKER!? WHY!?" So, frankly, it works like this, WWE has too many stars. Too many people to worry about some guy (who I like remember) who's biggest shebang in the fed was wearing white socks and talking about the WWE being too riske.
Plus, he's on TV. A lot of Bossman/Godfather fans can't say THEIR favorite wrestler is on tv. So, he a jobber, but he's good at what he does!

I am the consumer and your product is not living up to my expectations. I could open up an Andrew Gilkison message board and cry about it, but that's a waste of my time. In the meantime, I would suggest you work on improving your product. Thank you.
Watching RAW and Smackdown doesn't cost anymore than your posts do. And so, like a good consumer, I'm tuning you out.
I think Stevie is very, very good. He can wrestle. He can talk. He can draw major heat when given the opportunity -- not that he often is. What's not to like? I suspect he may not be higher up the card because he's too thin. You know what Vince likes.
¡Azúcar, flores y muchos colores! Estos fueron los ingredientes elegidos para crear a la niñita perfecta. Pero el profesor Utonio agrego accidentalmente otro ingrediente a la formula: ¡la sustancia X! Y así nacieron, ¡las Chicas Superpoderosas! ¡Con sus ultra súper poderes, Bombón, Burbuja y Bellota dedican su vida a combatir el crimen y las fuerzas del mal!

Stevie tends to get injured often which is a real shame because he is good. They should start working him out as an announcer part time and switch him to full time when he decides to hang up the boots.
Prime evil of Kaiju Big Battel is very mysterious and expensive doctor.
The cynic in me would say that the overall lack of McMahon's on SD the past few months may have something to do with the rise in the ratings. Also, they may have actually stumbled across someone who is over in a demographic.
