    Let's look at some wrestlers.

    No Way Jose.
    Rich Swann.
    Street Profits.
    New Day.
    Naomi.

    With all due respect, Why is it that such gimmicks like dancing are given mostly to black wrestlers?

    Am I thinking too much about it or it always happens?

    However, it's still pretty one-sided.

    Anything can be portrayed as one sided as long as you dig deep enough. Don't go looking for shit.

    Black people are better dancers, or so I've read.

    Looks like I need to clarify.

    I referred to as the wrestlers that are active doing this gimmick. Not past. But present.

    Jose is Dominican. Rich did it before coming to WWE. Naomi is more of a rave culture gimmick considering all the times she says Glow. She dances, but pretty much just for her entrance. New Day does so many things I really wouldn't even count them. Haven't even gotten a chance to see Street profits. So don't know.

    Emma. Lana. Fandango. Even though you want to go modern to and there are plenty of fast debunks. Too Cool is literally Rikishi and two white guys. Probably the most famous dancing gimmick in WWE doesn't involve black people. Didn't Great Kali dance to.

    Too Cool was ahead of its time. All other whites danced that high end classy stuff.

    It's part of black culture. It's only normal to establish a more swift connection with the audience and their demographic.


    It's art imitating life.

    Reading these replies I am disturbed by one glaring omission: PG-13. How can you watch them and say white guys can't dance? Wolfie D and JC Ice were two guys from the hood who busted moves while busting heads and winning belts. All others pale in comparison.

    My God I hope not, the guy can't hardly walk.

    Steve Nash of the Phoenix Suns says "Hold my beer"

    I was with you up until the "style" part. He came down like a bag of potatoes last weekend. No style there at all, not even a Geronimo.

    Unless Shelton Benjamin broke it, the highest vertical leap in WWE history was performed by Mark Jindrak.

    Could Steve Nash dunk? He was a helluva' floor general but I don't recall ever seeing him dunk.

    Apologies if I whiffed on obvious sarcasm.
