* Look how over he is with the fans. No need for dubbed sound when he makes his way to the ring.

* Although he's aimed at children, you can say he appeals to adults as well because of his charisma.

* We all know if you went to a Smackdown show you would be saying "what's up" along with the rest of the crowd ha ha.

He may be over with the fans but he isnt over backstage with creative or the road agents, so really no matter how much the fans love him, in the end its upto Vince if he will push him or not.

R-Truth at least deserves to be in a high mid card spot, he is really over, is loved by the kids and he is a decent worker as well, he does need to work on his promos though because his few brief promos have not been great in my opinion.

He is basically SD's version of John Cena having similar appeal and using a gimmick that loosely resembles Cena's old hip hop gimmick.
Difference is Truth also appeals to the older fans because he dosnt come across as dorky as Cena and he can actually wrestle.

I agree he should be used as a high mid card, well he is a former NWA World Heavyweight champion (two-time NWA World champion, winning the title in TNA). So yeah it is a surprise WWE havent captalised on R-Truth but that might also be because of his age (he's 36 or 37) and they might feel he is too old to push, I know it doesnt say much about WWE pushing Batista but still, and the fact R-Truth is a former TNA wrestler and I also think that might play a part in why he hasnt been pushed.

that shit was ridiculous and never should have been shown.  I don't like R-Truth anyway so whatever they do with him, I probably wouldn't care for watching.

He's going as Pretty Ricky now? If so, WWE have lost there marbles and there creative team apart from Michael Hayes (& any other former wrestler in creative), need to get shot one by one.

What the hell was all that Pretty Ricky stuff about? The announcers still referred to him as R-Truth so im really hoping this isnt some new gimmick he'll be using because in all honesty the segment was one of the lamest things ive seen in WWE since the Mae Young giving birth to a hand segment.

The Brits here might be the only ones on here who understand this reference, but with the teeth and the voice, he kind of reminded me of Duane Dibbley from Red Dwarf...

* This whole Pretty Ricky shit is terrible and going to kill his career.
 
* He's like a black Bruno and what's the need for the dodgy fake teeth?
 
* This segment was really not funny and he should be allowed to stick with his R Truth gimmick that was really over.
