Whatever happened to this guy?

He was one of the very few highlights of WWECW with his Jerry Springer style chat-show. I heard he returned to FCW and has actually been wrestling regularly rather than just being a on-screen personality.

I'm surprised he hasn't returned to the main-roster in some capacity, even if he's very green in the ring he has bags of charisma and personality as well as a decent look and physique, all qualities that usually have Vince Mcmahon creaming his pants.

Pretty sure he got swiftly buried after his draft to Raw (something with Carlito and HHH IIRC) then they were going to bring him back as the Anon Raw GM, which totally bombed as a rumour online as ppl were expecting someone way bigger.

Havent seen him since, aside from a couple of commentary spots on Smackdown I think.

The guy was annoying and i really didn't see the point of him or his show. Seeing this topic is about the first time i've actually remembered the guy exists and i'm so very glad that he seems to have fizzled out into nothing.

He's in FCW doing some stupid rapper gimmick (didnt see that comming by i bet vince did) and i think this guy should replace Teddy long as smackdown GM. The guy can talk, he's funny, and he should be out of FCW as soon as possible
YES! YES! YES!

Proper old school manager type. With his speaking ability, dress sense and being heel he's like Slick.

I'm liking his mouthpiece so you can hear him through the matches cheering on his guys.

Much less annoying than Jimmy Hart was with his megaphone and less distracting as well.

That's right they didn't need a mouthpiece, which is exactly why this is a good idea. It sells the idea that the Prime Time Players are badguys. They have the skill and talent, yet they are looking for any short-cut they can find. It's now up to the announcers to sell this idea.

Exactly, they could take on the old Nation mantra of by any means necessary.

Washington is gold as a manager and like has been said it is up to the announcers to buy into the gimmick. 

I think for the first time since Night of Champions Last Year there are two actual tag teams with more then 4 weeks of partnership between them 
All Hail Mitchell Johnson and David Warner.
