So, you've got the "pencil."  It's obvious Santino has a lot of talent on the mic, and while he's serviceable in the ring it's not his strong suit.

What would you do, if you're booking?

My take is, I'd make him a manager, in the old school sense.  there are plenty of guys right now in desparate need of a mouthpiece - a few guys have mouthpieces and still could use a good one.  I'd give Santino a stable of guys who otherwise wouldn't do all that well and see how it worked with a capable interview at their side.

Start with Gregory Helms, Gene Snitsky, Shelton Benjamin, Charlie Haas and Umaga.

I think he gets a great negative response from the fans and is very very good at pulling that off. Personally I'd like to see him with a major title (ala: Honky Tonk Man) with all the fans pulling for him to lose it. I'd choose the ECW title only Chavo has that right now.

Honestly I think he's one of the few guys they're booking right.

I'd have him replace Jerry Lawler as color guy...Lawler sucks and his pipsqueak voice is irritating...in fact,  I'd have Santino beat him in a match, take his job, and have Lawler retire....he sucked in the ring back in the day too

Did you ever get the opportunity to see him in OVW before the Santino character?  He was doing a Russian MMA type gimmick (ala Fedor).  The guy can look really legit and work a decent shoot looking style.

I like the idea of being a manager, but I see so much potential in that guy, that being a manager in today's environment would be a total waste of his talent.

I'd probably start booking him to win, slowly.......not making a big deal out of it.  But enough that people begin to take him more seriously when he faces guys like Jericho, Hardy, or even mid-card guys like Umaga and JBL.  Then slowly build him into a program with a main eventer like HBK and have him doing his mic work to really stand out, yet be a legit threat to HBK by the time they do face off.

Then have him feud with another main eventer and by the time he comes out of it, just like the Rock, he's taken seriously as a top guy.

Sounds like a winner!
