Show-Henry Teaming at SummerSlam, WWE Looking for African American Face


– There has been a call internally for WWE to try and create an African American babyface. The idea is to create him both to attract that demographic and to sell merchandise, similar to the role Rey Mysterio has played with the Latin community.

– Big Show was supposed to return on Monday’s RAW but could not get medically cleared. The segment on RAW where The Shield beat Mark Henry down and The Usos made the save was not originally planned.

Big Show was originally scheduled to make the save for Henry. Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns vs. Show and Henry in a handicap match is currently planned for SummerSlam.

  1. If the WWE were on top of their s***, Kofi Kingston for example, who has been a face for them for years, would be selling merchandise like crazy if they would’ve marketed him properly.
