Eh. The theme is just stupid. Really. I mean, purple doesn't fit the whole cruiserweight theme. Purple is the color of royalty. Notice Neville's "king of cruiserweights" run? Vince designed the gimmick for a reason.Whats wrong with them hving prpl ropes?
Ah! I see. OkEh. The theme is just stupid. Really. I mean, purple doesn't fit the whole cruiserweight theme. Purple is the color of royalty. Notice Neville's "king of cruiserweights" run? Vince designed the gimmick for a reason.
They're trying to go with a theme system: Smackdown = Blue, Raw = Red, Cruiserweights = Purple, NXT = Yellow.
It's just a standard Vince move. He loves to brand things. Purple is the brand of the cruiserweights. If they get over, you can market purple rings for kids to play with. To me, it is not ideal because it shows me that they are less than the main roster.Whats wrong with them hving prpl ropes?
Absolutely on point.My initial guess is that the entire roster has such gifted wrestlers overall that the cruiserweight cannot stand out. In years past, cruisers generally put on wrestling clinics, they were superior to the heavyweights in that particular regard. This isn't the case nowadays.
To Snowman's point, Neville had already been established prior to the creation of the cruiserweight division. This can only mean that his dominance serves little purpose in creating any fresh names.
All that being said, its time to give Asian talent their due. This division will remain stale if they insist on putting the chamionship on North American/European talent.
Just like in the mid 90's when there was a revolution of Mexican talent, there is now an influx of Asian talent that is ready. This won't 'save' the division but it would help ingratiate themselves to the Asian demographic for Monday Night RAW
