Why I Mark Out for the Wrong Guys

Let's face is Cagesiders, we've all marked out at one time or another for someone that everyone questioned. I guess that is the beauty of wrestling though. Everyone can cheer for who they want when they want and it's perfectly fine. Lately, I've been marking out for people who seem to be getting pushed away by WWE/Creative. Here is my list of people I mark out for on a weekly basis and why.

  • Kofi Kingston - Week after week I zone out during matches, but never during a Kofi match. His high paced, risky style always seems to captivate me. I love watching him wrestle and fly, his charisma is a treat to watch. Recently though, I've come to the conclusion, as sad as it may be, that Kofi is a jobber level guy in creative eyes. He might hold a title for an interim basis but he never seems to get a shot to run with it. He might do well in the WHC picture with Ziggler, Orton, and D-Bry leading to some amazing matches but that is sill to be seen.


  • Zack Ryder - OH RADIO TELL ME EVERYTHING YOU KNOW.. Sorry I'll stop. I don't know if it is his intro, the fact he is from where I am from, or the YOU KNOW IT, but when I see Long Island Iced Z on my TV I cheer for him hoping he isn't out there to job... Yeah hasn't been going to well lately. He probably will be cut soon and that makes me pretty sad cause I think he is a pretty good wrestler, and can actually compete if given the shot.


  • The Miz - Because he's awesome of course. Seriously though, I love the Miz. I know Mr. Preshow isn't the most popular person around here, but the guy can wrestle. Combine that with his arrogance and his flair, and you got someone I love to watch. While his run to the top seems to be over, and he has been reduced to pre-show and the IC title hunt, I think if the MIZ had a belt and made a run with it he could make it relevant again and make us care (Sorry Wade, as awesome as your new intro is, I just don't care).


Close but no cigar goes to Antonio Cesaro, Damien Sandow, Cody Rhodes, and Fandango. These guys are growing on me, but haven't reached a point due to creative or air time or whatever reason that I have gone into full out mark mode.

It should also go without saying that guys like Daniel Bryan, CM Punk, Jericho, and Taker get me to mark out 24/7 so they aren't on the list, as well as main event type talent because after all this is about Marking out for guys who seem to be out of the major title pictures.

In advance, thanks for reading my first fanpost as i'm new here and in the comments join in and let us know who you mark for and why or just question my decisions, either way here we go!
