-- Deuce, who was moved from SmackDown to Raw in the Supplemental Draft, it set to get a makeover. There has been talk of recognizing Deuce's background and morphing him into something resembling the new Jimmy Snuka, who is his adopted father. Before joining WWE, he did a Jimmy Snuka Jr. gimmick under the names Jimmy Snuka Jr., Solo Snuka, and Solo. He has also played a card shark gimmick from Las Vegas (which is where he's from) under the name Deuce Shade, but they probably won't be going in that direction.

* We didn't see him this week on Raw and so they are probably keeping him off screen for a while so that we "forget" about his former gimmick, before his new one starts up (whatever that will be).

* I wouldn't want him to go and get a card shark gimmick. I think that sounds a little tacky and I wouldn't fancy the chances of him getting over with it.

* I think he's an above average chance of getting over if he recognises who his adopted father is, wrestles as Deuce Snuka and turns babyface (maybe having his father show up now and again to help Deuce out).

-- Deuce's return on week's edition of Raw was his first television appearance in over three months, dating back to June 20. Following a loss to Jesse and Festus (their second straight in two weeks), Deuce and Domino would brawl during the match and after, ending with Deuce laying out Domino with the "Crack 'em in da Mouth." He threw his jacket over his fallen partner, dissolving their partnership. Deuce was picked up by Raw in the Supplemental Draft, but hadn't made a single appearance - including house shows & dark matches - until last night. It was reported that Deuce would get a character makeover, but it looks like WWE isn't going to bother. Deuce lost in just over a minute to Santino Marella, which probably isn't a good sign for his future prospects on Raw.

-- With the return of Deuce, as well as the recent return of Carlito, that leaves DH Smith and Chuck Palumbo as the only active drafted wrestlers that have yet to debut on television on their new brands. Although, Palumbo appeared on a Raw brand house show back in July, so that would leave Smith as the only active wrestler to not debut on his new brand in any form. Palumbo is reportedly on the chopping block and Smith is for all intents and purposes back to being a developmental wrestler as he appears on Florida Championship Wrestling shows every week.

* For all the good his return as done to his career, he might as well have stayed off screen.

* What happened to them making the most of having the son of Jimmy Snuka on their roster?

* It made no sense at all to keep him off screen for so long and then bring him back in the same gimmick.

* Maybe they think there's enough next generation superstars around and he's next on the chopping block.......

he's not Snuka's biological son, is he?  If not, he's not gonna have the same natural ability that Snuka had.  That's not meant to be a putdown but if they were expecting a "Snuka Jr." type thing with this guy, they are finding out he's nothing like Snuka.  They probably won't do it but they need to let him develop his own natural ability and go from there but they are too impatient for that.

--Look at Randy Orton.  He's got a lot of his dad's movements and antics.
--Same can be said for Ted DiBiase Jr. 
--Cody Rhodes is a lot like a younger Dusty Rhodes even though they look nothing alike as far as body structure goes but neither does Randy Orton look like his dad in body structure.  
--Manu even looks like his dad--Afa of the Wild Samoans.  Now we haven't seen a lot of him performance wise yet but so far, to me, he wrestles a lot like his dad too.
