Last night Hunico was on commentary during the match between Drew McIntyre and Ted Dibiase. Dibiase got the win after Dreamstreet, but the more interesting part of the segment was Hunico on commentary.
One thing I found interesting was how Hunico seemed to get a long with both the heel and face announcers, something rarely seen when someone is on commentary.
Hunico went into his love of low rider bikes a bit, but mostly he addressed the friction between Dibiase and himself.
Apparently Hunico feels left out by not being invited to Dibiase Posse get-togethers. Frankly, this is the dumbest reason I have ever heard used for the start of a feud, but whatever keeps both guys on TV is good, I guess.
I like Hunico and I am glad WWE is not going to just ignore him with Sin Cara to injure. I have always felt Dibiase had tons of potential, so I think this feud could end up helping both guys.
Dibiase's face run has been mediocre at best, but I give the guy tons of credit for doing his pre-show tailgate parties with fans. This is a good step for Dibiase to really connect with people.
When his feud with Rhodes ended I was disappointed to see Dibiase sort of fall to the back of the line, but it looks like WWE may be ready to give him another shot.
When he was in Legacy he was facing some of the biggest names in the business, and sometimes he was winning, but more recently he has been floundering.
Is there hope for Dibiase to ever become a main eventer?
Dibiase is a great hand in the ring, but his mic skills are lukewarm and I have always thought he worked better as a heel. He just has that heel look to him for some reason.
Hunico, on the other hand, is doing a great job (at least in my opinion) of being a believable heel, and with Camacho by his side, he could get even better.
I was not a fan of WWE making Hunico a generic gansta-style heel, but he has been pulling it off well and he seems to be comfortable.
I would like to see some real progression and not just a match or two in this feud because without more exposure Dibiase will be one of WWE's more prominent failures.
He was brought in and WWE thought he would be the next Randy Orton. They played up his pedigree and often times he led the promos when talking with Cody.
WWE even put him in the Marine 2 thinking he would be a more marketable name by now.
I am looking forward to Hunico and Dibiase getting in the ring together as their contrasting styles are sure to make for an interesting match, I just hope WWE gives them more than three minutes to put on a show.
What do you think, is this feud what Dibiase needs to get over?
