At first I thought this character was terrible. Then I thought it had potential because of the wrestler behind the character. Then the feud with Chris Jericho helped put him over, but it was the crowd at RAW in New Jersey – who sang along with his theme song and made me roar – which put Fandango into the spotlight.
Now, my children hum his theme song ChaChaLaLa through the house, making the finger pointing dance moves and saying… “It’s FAHN-DAHN-GO” or yelling “SAY MY NAME!!!”.
My son recently named his fern “Fern-dahn-go”.
