It’s better than nothing. With so many people on the WWE roster, it can be difficult for everyone to get some kind of television time. This can prove very frustrating both for the wrestlers and the fans, as they both want to see people on TV but it doesn’t always work that way. There are some alternatives to getting in the ring though and two WWE wrestlers are doing just that.
You might not have watched it all that much, but 205 Live has produced some of the better action in WWE over the last few years. There was a stretch where it was possibly the best show the company had from an in-ring perspective with one high flying match after another. A big reason for that was a group of wrestlers they had, all of whom are now on bigger shows. They are reuniting in a way though, even if it isn’t in the ring.
This is a unique one. Check out a new commercial featuring WWE stars:
WWE stars Mustafa Ali and Cedric Alexander are featured in a new commercial for the Manscape personal grooming system. The video features Ali talking about what the new version of the system is capable of and superkicks another electric razor out of Alexander’s hands. Ali and Alexander wrestled together on 205 Live and have both since moved up to Monday Night Raw.
Opinion: This isn’t exactly a major ad campaign but it is cool to see the two of them getting something like this, as they don’t exactly get a ton of television time. The two of them are both talented performers and while they might not be in the ring very often, if they can get to do something like this, good for them. You don’t see wrestlers in ads very often so seeing some of the lower level stars in one is a cool moment.
