-- Creative has been told R-Truth's "Pretty Ricky" character is no more.

Vince McMahon decided to pulled it after a few weeks, but at the time, said they were going to shoot more. Since then, they have yet to do so.

Good news as I personally couldnt stand this ridiculous gimmick and thought it could have easilly been a career killer for R-Truth.

Question is what do they do with him now, hes currently being used as jobber-fodder for newcomers like Drew McIntyre which I know someone has to be but I think Ron Killings has way more to offer than that.

I think he would be better on the Raw brand, I know his age is going against him at 37 years old but I think he would do well on Raw as a high-mid card, US title contender. Maybe trade him with Evan Bourne who would be far better suited to Smackdown.

God no, please don't let him be put on RAW.  I can't stand him.  Put him on ECW or better yet, release him.

I'm pleased that they've dropped the "Pretty Ricky" character completely but I am disappointed that Ron is basically being fed to Drew McIntyre during run ins at the moment.

Actually, I couldn´t stand R. in the first place so I definately love Drew McIntyre coming out and shutting him up week after week after week after week (insert loop here)

Nyte, is that in spite of the fact that Drew McIntyre looks like a big girls blouse with that daft pontail?

You know, I would even be happy if it was Slam Master J aka Jesse who punked out Truth every friday... I honestly don´t give a crap about McIntyre, it´s the fact that Truth is forced to shut up a bit earlier.

AAGGHH, NOOOOOOOOOO! He's only marginally better than Drew McIntyre!

* Although it was booked as a fluke it's still good to see R Truth picking up a big win.

* He should be in the ring with top tier talent like CM Punk all the time and stop being used to enhance others.

* He took advantage to great affect that Punk told Scott Armstrong to count faster.

I dont understand why wwe has the Brand Split still as we got guys jumping to shows all the time now
 
Good promo by Christian and R-Truth has settled into his roll as a whacked out conspiracist nutjob quite well.
 
I think it would make sense for Christian, Miz and Truth to form an alliance against the wwe's golden boys Cena and Orton.
 
"He's going to get got" is a fun little catchphrase for Truth as well

He was baffling so much that even his heel partner Christian was confused by the whole thing.

He's gotta be rated highly by management at the moment as they are booking him for both their main shows.

Also Hs has been involved in a fair few segments with him and I don't see him putting himself in those situations with someone he doesn't rate.
