Video: Fandango is not a joke

No, seriously, he's not a joke, you guys.

The latest episode of WWE's YouTube show, "Backstage Fallout," features the returning Shawn Michaels as well as Intercontinental Champion Wade Barrett chatting up that random backstage interview guy about all the fallout from last night's (April 1, 2013) episode of Monday Night Raw.

But we're more interested in Fandango because, well, he's not a joke. He'll tell you himself:

"Shhh. Do you think I want to be interviewed right now? Do you? DO you think I'm a joke? Because Chris Jericho thought I was a joke; the whole WWE Universe thought I was a joke. I'm not a joke. I will be taken seriously here in the WWE. At WrestleMania, Chris Jericho will realize that I am not a joke, Iam the real deal. And as he looks up at the lights and looks up at me as my hand is raised victorious the whole entire WWE Universe in unison will say one name and one name only and that is FAN-DAN-GO."

One thing you can't argue is how much he commits to the character. His match against Chris Jericho at WrestleMania 29 may be the most intriguing of the 10 announced so far. Agree or disagree?
