Re: Pro Wrestling is FAKE!?!
I just can't get into him. We already had an "international" star with his own personal ring announcer...who always used to tell us what his name was during every promo....
Remember Armando........Alejandro.......Essssssssssssssssss sssstrada?
Then of course there was Daivari and Sheik Abdul Bashir.....
But back to Ziggler for a minute...HE got the call on marketing his own WWE Merch, and the man used Social Media outlets like it was old news.
For his pink Show Off T, he would post on Twitter that the first 50 people at each house show would get a meet and greet with him at some point during the night. Right there you're guaranteed to sell 50 Dolph T's to people willing to meet a superstar, nevermind the people that already would've bought the Dolph T's if there was no promo.
I can tell you, for the last Raw House Show that came through RI, which was a sellout of close to 10,000, we sold 78 of the Dolph T's and returned 28 to WWE. And those 28 were probably due to missed Meet & Greets. So Props to him for being able to connect like that, even as a "mid carder". And I use quotations because three years from now, if marketed correct, he will not be a mid-carder, and someone will have passed him one of the torches within WWE.....just not the one Hunter still holds.
