Fandango: attacked Jericho on Smackdown
Fandango has yet to compete in a match in the WWE but gave a glimpse of his talents on Friday Night Smackdown.
The ballroom-dance enthusiast - who has cited ring announcers and competitors' failure to pronounce his name properly as the reason why he has yet to do battle between the ropes - interfered in Chris Jericho's bout with Jack Swagger and cost Y2J the victory.
Fandango, who was mocked by Jericho on Monday's episode of Raw, kicked the Ayatollah of Rock 'n' Rolla in in the head whilst Swagger's mouthpiece Zeb Colter had distracted the referee, allowing the Real American to connect with his Swagger Bomb and pick up the three count.

But the jiving grappler was not finished with Jericho, who has now lost to Swagger twice in two weeks, and hit him post-match with a devastating top-rope leg drop before sauntering backstage with his female companion.
Elsewhere, strange bedfellows Big Show, Sheamus and Randy Orton banded together to defeat 3MB members Heath Slater, Drew McIntyre and Jinder Mahal in a six-man tag-team contest in Cincinnati, Ohio.
The trio, who appeared on MizTV earlier in the evening and insisted that they could function as a unit, engaged in a dose of in-fighting after their triumph, but quickly regrouped to thwart an attack from The Shield, the faction they seem set to fight at WrestleMania.
Mark Henry, meanwhile, obliterated Zack Ryder but was then levelled by 'Mania opponent Ryback's Meat Hook Clothesline as the big men's rivalry cranked up another notch, while The Miz conquered United States Champion Antonio Cesaro as Intercontinental Titlist Wade Barrett watched on.
Plus, Kofi Kingston was pinned by Dolph Ziggler and then flattened by the Showoff's muscle Big E Langston, and Team Rhodes Scholars' clash with Brodus Clay and Tensai was rendered a no-contest after the Bella Twins and the Funkadactyls brawled at ringside.
