Well, so much for this idea. Fandango debuts this week on SmackDown!


We’ve all been anxiously awaiting the debut of Fandango for 3+ months now, and I think it’s about time we up the stakes a bit. When do you think he’ll show up? NXT appearances don’t count – neither do house shows. It has to be on SmackDown, Raw, or a PPV.

Place your selection here, using your Twitter handle as your name, to enter in our Fandango Pool. The winner (whoever is closest, being before or after does not matter) will get a WWE Shop or TheSteelCage.com t-shirt of their choice.

Click here and make your pick. Remember the rules:

  1. Use your Twitter username as your name. If you’re not on Twitter, fill out the form and THEN send us an email to confirm your entry at podcast[at]thesteelcage.com
  2. Select only a date and leave the time as it is defaulted to. Duplicates will be notified to change their pick.
  3. Registration is open until he debuts – make your picks soon, though, to get the best selections!
  4. A taped debut counts as the day it airs, i.e. SmackDown is taped on Tuesday but if he debuts on that show, it airs on Friday – Friday is the ‘official’ debut date.

For most of the last 30+ years of my life, I've been watching WWE. As a kid, Monday Night Raw hooked me from the start. From Bret Hart and Razor Ramon, to Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock, to CM Punk and Daniel Bryan.. I've witnessed the ups and downs and I'm proud to have enjoyed pro wrestling through the years.

Though I now watch in a much different fashion than I did when I was a kid (finding out Vince McMahon was the owner and Jack Tunney no more than a figurehead was like finding out Santa Claus did not exist), I feel like I have a much greater appreciation for the hard work pro wrestlers do and the things they sacrifice to entertain us.

It's still real to me, dammit!
