He was given the gimmick: Saddistic, overly sexual, girating ballroom dancer. How in the WORLD do you want him to sound? What you hear as a raspy smoker, is intended to sound like a weird, sultry maniac. I think he accomplishes that. Maybe you don't like his delivery, but the guy oozes confidence, and rarely seems remotely lost on the mic. He took a horrible gimmick (agreed there) and he grabbed it by the throat and committed 110%.
"His music is what got over. Not his character." -
That's almost like saying, Daniel Bryan pointing into the sky and yelling "Yes" got him over, not his perfomance leading up to Mania in Miami that had the crowd so invested in him. Fandango and Curtis supporters alike recognize the man was making the best of a laughable gimmick and went along with it at Mania and the following Raw in Jersey.
"I find Fandango to be irritating, boring and a down right flop. And no, that doesn't mean he's "doing his job" by being a good heel. I think he just flat out sucks."
- It's fair to find him annoying and boring, thats up to you. The man is not a flop. He's in a feud with Y2J that people seem invested in, he's got merchandise selling, and people singing his song, at the end of the day - the WWE couldn't ask for more from a ballroom dancer gimmick. His girations, scowls, the "Say My Names!", and his overall intensity and massive commitment to that gimmick are impressive. I just don't get how people don't appreciate what he's doing.
