Steve Blackman's Cageside Evaluation

His name is Steve Blackman and Cageside Seats readers have reported back on what they love and loathe about the former WWE Hardcore Champion. Here's the full evaluation.

What you loved:

  1. Theme - It's a highly underrated entrance theme, listen!
  2. Head Cheese - A perfect combo for comedy. Al Snow was a great talker and got more than anyone else out of Blackman in terms of promos.
  3. Shamrock Feud - You guys felt this was his best feud, their gimmicks helped make it feel very organic.
  4. Hardcore Champion - He held the title six times, which is 21 less than Raven.
  5. Martial Arts - Being in the hardcore division, he was a weapons master, and used them quite effectively and often.

Best comment comes via cmujoiseyboy:

"Love: Head Cheese...That is all."


What you loathed:

  1. Promos - Easy number one choice today. His lack of personality caused a lack of notable promos.
  2. Ceiling - Thanks to the first trend, and his gimmick, the main-event was never in sight for Blackman.
  3. A Guy - Unless you watched a ton of Sunday Night Heat, or saw this, he's not someone too memorable.
  4. Blackman's Bounties - His own bounty hunter show, coming to the WWE Network!...or not.

"If Lance Storm had a martial arts gimmick his name would be Steve Blackman."

On to the poll! With 225 votes, Steve Blackman's average score is 3.4

Thanks, Cagesiders! We'll back on Monday for our first reevaluation of the year! Who will it be? All I can divulge is he was a former WWE Champion.

Until then!
