Is it time for Fredo to start getting big names consistently?

Finally got around to watching Fredo vs Bender. Crazy battle on both sides, but I think Fredo in particular had his best performance ever. Is it finally time to give Fredo big opponents not just once in awhile, but EVERY event? I think he and @pnut have earned it.

Who are some people y'all want to see Fredo against now? I'd say:

Big T
JC
Bigg K
Cortez
Kid Twist
K-Shine
Pass
T-Top
Ness Lee
The Saurus

Also, if the idea of Big T vs Fredo sounds familiar...

No, but not in a bad way. I think relegating Fredo to the midcard is a smart move because it builds credibility to it; a la how the WWE gave John Cena the US Championship to add more ratings to the lesser-watched sections of the show. Putting an absolute 100% surefire solid contender within the midcard instead of capitalizing on their stock and putting them into a main event scene is the tiniest bit patronizing, but it's extremely effective in building more credible cards. I feel as if the reason Battles at the Bunker succeeded is because there wasn't an undercard; it was battles all within the same entertainment value realm of eachother -- at least to fans like us who consume most/all of the content released within a certain frame. (URL/KOTD/DF/BIC/RBE)

You see, giving Fredo Saurus and having Fredo be a standout would mean Fredo's reasonably in line for a main event, if at the Bunker/on the West Coast. However, putting him 3rd from the top on the card doesn't hurt him, it just makes KOTD look stronger by having more consistently entertaining content althroughout the event.

(this also has to do with that I don't think the title should be headlining events, and the title should be around the sweet spot between middle/top of card unless the holder is someone like Arsonal, Dizaster, or Iron that can draw an entire base of ticketholders/ppv buyers on their own.)

Good topic. I don't think I'll be relentlessly shitposting in this thread.

I should watch this battle sounds like a good performance but like someone else said recently let's be careful not to turn Fredo into the next Madflex or Psychosis. What I mean by that here is that by its very nature only a select few can be main event tier.

I'm not talking about making Fredo the main event. I'm taking about getting him good opponents on a consistent basis.

Lets call it what it is Fredo is, albeit an amazing rapper, a big dude who looks nerdy. He lacks the image of a star. He can be however an asset on every fresh coast, dont flop or KotD card

fredo vs soul?

as long as people don't duck him. If Fredo isn't getting really good opponents, it's probably because people won't battle him.

Like some other people said maybe he isn't getting great looks because his peers don't want to battle him because they don't think he's marketable. But then, how does a guy like The Saurus get high level comp

Likewise GP, but if my commentary is trash this time I'm going to claim that I didn't try because of a family emergency.

Yeah how about we have a few dudes who are just good at being mid tier? I mean DNA might be considered a big name but i'd much rather watch Fredo vs Lu Cipher or Madflex or Erik Foreman or something like that.

T-Top being accessible thuggin' is more or less his gimmick; reflected in that everyone'll fantasy book him against their favorite mid tier rapper regardless of how well they'd mesh.

I agree that rappers like reverse and others that has been getting worse opponents alot of the times but still show up and kills it should be moved up. However I can't really recall Fredo doing to much damage. He had one good battle against Swave and the last one against Bender. Other than that I've never really understood his popularity, he raps with too much pauses and basic punches. I've probably missed some of his better battles.
