Anyone else make this comparison? All he needs is one of MVP's nasal snoring strips and he'd be there.

What do you see as the future for big Zeke?

It's funny you brought this up because I was just thinking Zeke does have some comparisons to Ahmed Johnson when he was on RAW. Hopefully though, for Zeke his career doesn't get cut short like Ahmed Johnson's did (sadly). Zeke has a future but it's up to WWE brass to make it work & maybe re-establish him a bit let alone come up with some better wrestling gear. Again, Zeke has a future in the WWE but WWE needs to make it happen.

I still remember Ahmed Johnson taking on the Nation of Domination back when it first formed and I was always impressed with this guy. I do think Jackson has the ability to become a serious name in WWE but WWE needs to take him seriously and give him the time to develop his character infront of the crowds

I don't mean to be a buzzkill, but I don't see this guy's push really ever getting off the ground. He's either going to be plagued by injuries, or someone is finally going to come to the realization that he kind of sucks (of course this never stopped Dave Batista from winning titles, so what do I know?).

Hmmm? I can definately see the trend in name themes:

First name- Religious referance
Last name- Stereotypical african american

Never noticed this until you said something.

Zeke's future: Unfortunately, he'll either be eventually released or kept at the bottom the card. WWE still doesn't push the well deserving. The best that I can see happening is him getting the temporary push Kofi Kingston got last year.

That was A+ funny right there.

But back on to subject.. Ezekiel Jackson (if he really injured himself) will most likely be released soon. I mean look at Mr. Kennedy, Candice Michelle, and all of those other guys that started to come off injury prone. They got released. I really wanted this big guy to be the next Brock Lesnar but unfortunately his bones don't agree with him. They should really use Vladimir Kozlov for what they appear to be trying to do with Ezekiel Jackson.

Even if he did, I don't think they'll release him. He's still green where as Kennedy was there for 5 years(?). On the other hand, if he does get released it won't be the end of the world. No reason why he can't get a couple years of experience and come back.

Comparisons are inevitable when dealing with wrestling. Every wrestler is modeled (character wise) after an earlier wrestler with a couple of big tweaks. Just look at it through history since wrestling has become considered "sports entertainment". The good-looking wrestler who is depended on for great matches bc of his wrestling and flying skills as well as his ability to take great bumps. It can be traced back all the way to Tito Santana (in my memory, im only 28). You can look at the roster now and pretty much be able to fill in the blanks with roles and characters and pretty much be able to fill it in with wrestlers from any other roster in the past 30 years. It's a tested method that will always be in place bc its proven.

First of all, All you Bozos have no right to compare Zeke to Ahmed...Ahmed is one of the greatest to step in the ring and Zeke has a long wa to go.. Zekes only been in the business for a few years and has only really worked under the WWE and learned to wrestle the "WWE" way....if he is serious about taking his career to the next level, he should take a year or so off from WWE and go do some jobbing in japan or mexico....

Smackdown he played second fiddle to Kendrick, they barely gave him the opportunity to stand out. ECW? WWE didn't give two shits about ECW during that time so why should the casual fan care about anything that happened. My point is he hasn't been exposed enough to the casual fans.

Big Zeke was the last ECW champ but it doesn't even matter because that title wasn't recognized completely.

Them putting the ECW title on him at the very least minute still gave me no indication of the guy's wrestling talent. All that said to me was that Vince saw a shortcut to have the guy appear as some kind of monster for when he transitioned to Smackdown. That's literally all that I got out of it.

I'm not really concerned with how he comes across to the casual fan, as I'm not one of them. I watched the entire final stretch of ECW and didn't see much of anything about Big Zeke, aside from his size, to be getting excited over.
