Why do you think WWE chooses gimmicks for minorities and foreign wrestlers that are not as good as the real backstory of the wrestlers?

Ron Simmons decorated NCAA player , former NFL player , 1st African American to hold a major heavy weight title

José Alberto Rodríguez aka Alberto Del Rio won a Gold medal in wrestling at the Pan American Games . Competed in MMA in a Mask, has a winning MMA record

Jacqueline Moore third degree black belt in taekwondo and also has experience in kickboxing and boxing.

Maryse has a Bachelors degree in business administration and a black belt in martial arts

Allen James Coage AKA Bad News Brown won a bronze medal in the Olympics in Judo and won 2 gold medals in the Pan American Games

Austin Watson aka Xavier Woods I believe he has a PHD in psychology or is in the process of getting it. That can be used for several angles and has a good amateur record

Anthony Carelli aka Santino Marella has experience in judo and MMA

Booby Lashley How often due you hear in WWE about Booby’s military experience, awards for amateur wrestling or MMA experience

Rusev has Muay Thai Experience

    Alberto Del Rio, Maryse and Santino Marella - Got over because of their characters, this would have benefited absolutely none of them and you exaggerate Del Rio's MMA career which is 14 fights total.

    Bobby Lashley, Ron Simmons, Rusev and Xavier Woods - WWE has mentioned this numerous times, clearly you don't watch the product.

    Everyone still wouldn't have given a sht about Bad News Brown or Jacqueline Moore.
