* It looked like something you would expect to see on the Montell Williams show ha ha.

* He started heelish but seemed to turn babyface during the interview but I can't be completely sure.

* On first impressions I liked him. Yes he's got a dodgy haircut but he can talk and looks the part.

Ive seen some videos of him in FCW, I dont know what he's like in the ring but he can talk which is a good thing as he can sell himself to the fans when merchandise comes out, but as far as his wrestling goes, its a good question whether or not he's good in the ring, which I'm sure we will find out sooner than later.
 
In FCW he was a heel and he was managing Black Pain (now known as Sweet Papi Sanchez), so I won't be surprised if WWE utilise him as a heel and a manager aswell.

Why does he need his very own thread? why couldn't he go in the thread that shows details of all the FCW guys to debuted last night?
-
The segment in my opinion bombed. also, somethin tells me he was told to say "you know what um sayin?" and "That's what I'm talkin 'bout" to sell him as a "Black Lingo Superstar" similar to Teddy Long. what a genius gimmick...

Well you know what Admin is like, when some talent comes in that makes him cum in his pants, he automatically makes a thread about them.

* "Lego hair". That was quite a good line by Tommy Dreamer who's been owned by Abraham Washington on the mic since he debuted.

* I like how Abraham talks over them like someone would if they are trying to rile them up.

* Abraham should be added to the Dreamer/Christian fued by getting involved in some matches and starting to wrestle.

Thats IF Abraham is any good in the ring, I think WWE are doing the right thing by having Washington just do the mic work and possibly become a manager because what I remember seeing of him in FCW, he rarely if ever wrestled.

1) I think he actually said "lego head", but who's counting.
2) I was actually more partial to Christian's rib about how Abraham's show was a made for a public access and his jokes haven't been original since 1991, but still - that was a good bite back by Dreamer at all the jokes.

Agreed. It's entertaining, it carries funny potential, and it really does help to stir things up. That whole "Philly cheese steak" rant was probably the funniest part of that segment not said by Christian IMO.

This guy is a great talker, very smooth and confident on the mic and is doing a good job of getting a heel reaction from the fans, the applause and laughter cues on the big screen are a good idea as well in order to get him heel heat.
I would go as far to say that his verbal talents can rival those of the Rock.

So far he has been used purely as a talk show host so the question is can he work in the ring and do WWE have any plans to have him wrestle?

If they do I think he has a bright future in WWE.

i dunno, i think sometimes wrestlers are good at walking the line when it comes to getting crowd heet and just plain sucking so bad that if this where another time period people would be throwing rotton fruit at him.
it isnt often you hear a "this is stupid" chant, i dont think that the type of heet people go for.
but it is better than the vip lounge...but not much
