The Superstar who sat by the door: How WWE can create the next black main eventer
Reports from the dirt sheets say that WWE is aggressively seeking a black babyface to corner the African-American demo and get them buying stuff--a la how the Latino community is reported to have rallied around acts like Rey Mysterio and Alberto Del Rio (well, the first one moreso than the last one, but I digress.) Besides this being the biggest no-brainer since letting Bryan Danielson wrestle for extended periods of time, it’s also fairly easy to execute. Don’t believe me? Here are the 3 steps that WWE needs to execute in order to create an African-American main event threat.
