Ken Doane was only 18 when they brought him into development and still only 19 when he came to the main roster in the Spirit Squad. He was very immature, as most people that age are in general, and being a TV wrestling star with his looks, physique, and getting some money in pocket had to have made things worse. He'd have been better off being left in OVW for a while, even if he was ready from a talent standpoint to come up to the main roster. Just staying Louisville to grow up a bit while working in front of crowds of 500 instead of 15,000 would have done him good. He was seen as a guy who could have evolved into a Randy Orton equivalent.

Speaking of Orton, after the Spirit Squad were buried and disbanded, Doane remained on the main roster as Kenny Dykstra (really). He got a minor push at first and there had been an effort in the last days of the Spirit Squad to set him apart from the others and treat him slightly more seriously. He was aligned on TV with Orton and Edge, was given a televised pinfall win over Ric Flair, and worked house show main events with Orton and Edge against Hunter, Shawn, and Flair. However, it ended fast due to the attitude and maturity issues and soon he was in the low midcard and eventually gone.

He's still only 32. He's less than a year older than Xavier Woods, Dean Ambrose, and Bray Wyatt and is older than Seth Rollins by about two months. He's younger than Roman Reigns, Braun Strowman, Daniel Bryan, Miz, Fin Balor, Baron Corbin, Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, AJ Styles, Cesaro, Sheamus, Big E, and Kofi Kingston. That he's never been given another real chance, as opposed to the brief comedy appearance, amazes me. He must have really made people mad the first time around to get completely left for dead considering how big of a prospect he was. He's the reason the WWE won't take anyone that young again barring exceptional circumstances.

From a business stand point what is the purpose? Does anyone go to NFL games to watch male or female cheerleaders?

Its all about being politically correct.



I hate it though. The sport's history is that of the Ice Bowl, the Monsters Of The Midway, the Purple People eaters, and the Steel Curtain. Male cheerleaders? They don't belong here.

The NFL has been trotting out the likes of Justin Timberlake and The Bee Gees for the Super Bowl halftime Show for decades now.  They've long since given up on being manly.

So true. Guys like Ray Nitschke and Dick Butkus would have fucked Justin Timberlake in the ass on the 50 yard line in front of close to a billion people watching on TV worldwide. They would have established their Alpha Male role through their penises. The players today hide their ass rape from the fans and this takes a lot away from the game. This all started under the Obama regime.

It isn't so much that people go to games for cheerleaders and would stay away if teams didn't have any. There are a few teams that don't have them at all, the Steelers coming to mind. It's more a matter of teams presenting them as part of the overall entertainment package. The cheerleading squads are also monetized. The team can book them for appearances and sell related sponsorships.
 
Most NFL and NBA cheerleading/dance squads have an official salon, an official makeup company, and so on. If a team sets up a separate co-ed cheerleading team that does more of the athletic flips and tosses as opposed to the dance routines or if it has a hip hop dance crew that is aesthetically and artistically different than a regular cheerleading or dance team, it can sell a new set of sponsorships.
