Al Snow's Cageside Evaluation

His name is Al Snow and Cageside Seats readers have reported back on what they love and loathe about the former WWE Tag Team Champ. Here's the full evaluation.

Pro Wrestling Wikia

What you loved:

  1. Tough Enough - A fantastic coach for this series, showed he really cared about helping the next generation. Would be nice if he was helping out in NXT.
  2. Dedication - Not only to the wrestling business, but to every single one of those terrible gimmicks he received.
  3. All-Around Talent - Jack of all trades, master of none.
  4. "Head" - WWE ruined it, but in ECW this was pretty funny. Seeing all those white mannequin heads in the crowd was both weird and hilarious.
  5. Mr. Socko's Creator - Coming from Mick Foley, Snow originally came up with the idea to use Mr. Socko.

My favorite comment goes to Verklemptomaniac:

"Solid worker. Good guy by all accounts, really supported up and coming talent. Managed to make Steve freakin’ Blackman entertaining during their Head Cheese tag team run, which never gets enough credit for being as funny as it was."


What you loathed:

  1. Glorified Jobber - This might be harsh, but he never got to or beyond mid-card status during his career.
  2. Gimmicks - I've never seen so many uses of the word "stupid" before in an evaluation. They were all terrible, but Al would try his best to make them work.
  3. WWE Run - He was really hot in ECW, but never quite caught on in the WWE.
  4. "Head" - There were some of you who thought it was a pretty dumb double entendre to get a wrestler over.
  5. Hell in a Kennel - Terrible match and idea.

My favorite comment comes via The Unmasked Superstar:

"He was hot in ECW, came into WWE and, surprise, they squandered it. They screwed up the "head" gimmick, didn’t seem to know what to do with Al and lost all the heat they could’ve had. It makes me wonder why wrestling promotions almost always fail to transfer a talent’s momentum when they bring them in from another organization. It seems simple enough, but it rarely happens."

On to the poll! With 135 votes, Al Snow's average score is 3.2

Thanks, Cagesiders! Tomorrow's pick is underrated in the world of women's wrestling.

Until then!
