During the post-WrestleMania edition of “Monday Night Raw” on April 7, Fandango and Summer Rae took on Santino Marella and Emma in a mixed tag-team matchup. Emma, a new addition to the main WWE roster, earned her team the victory rather quickly as she made Summer Rae tap to the “Emma Lock.”
On the following day, Tuesday, April 8, Fandango appeared to break it off with Summer Rae, tweeting the following:
Hey, @RealSummerWWE. Did you get my text? Like I said, it's really not me, it's you. It's over…

Coincidentally, it was a year ago today in which the “Fandangoing” craze began. During the post-WrestleMania “Monday Night Raw” from 2013, the heavy European crowd created the brief Internet sensation, as they hummed Fandango’s theme music while pointing their index fingers up. “Fandangoing” even led to his theme music climbing the charts on iTunes, almost reaching number-one status at one point.
However, a year removed from defeating Chris Jericho at WrestleMania 29, Fandango has not achieved much greatness in WWE. Perhaps, similar to Bad News Barrett getting a revived push on April 7, the same will happen to Fandango down the road.
I do believe that this may very well lead to Fandango getting a renewed push. However, at the same time, I’m not sure the gimmick can achieve much in WWE. It will definitely be interesting to see if a split does indeed come out of this.
