Who the hell is Fandangoo?

WWE debuted a short vignette on Monday Night Raw last night (Nov. 5, 2012) introducing a new character going by the name Fandangoo. Who the hell is Fandangoo?

During last night's (Nov. 5, 2012) episode of Monday Night Raw, WWE debuted a vignette introducing a man with some sort of glamor gimmick named Fandangoo.

Get it? Oy.

Here's the video:

This is to hype the new gimmick of Johnny Curtis, the winner of NXT season four who toiled away on that show for far too long before it moved to Full Sail University in Florida and the creative team was tasked with coming up with something for him on the main roster.

He actually debuted in a dark match at a SmackDown taping weeks ago as a tango dancer and now he's got a name and is actually going to receive a push, even if it's only a moderate one.

What I find interesting about this is that towards the end of NXT's run as the "D" show, Curtis was toiling away alongside Derrick Bateman and Maxine. Bateman would also get called up and repackaged as "The USA Guy" before he suffered an injury and recently underwent surgery. The interesting part?

Maxine quit the company citing lack of upward mobility.

Perhaps that was true in her case but both Bateman and Curtis are being given a shot. Now let's see what they can do with it.

UPDATE: Another promo aired on Super SmackDown and this time, there is one less "o," making his name "Fandango."

A screw up? Or a settlement with the Fandango.com?
