A WWE wrestler who lacks any entertaining abilities or skills. His gimmick is that he is a loveable Italian. But other than that, he rarely defends his championship and his fighting style is very formulaic, bland and boring. He is a blackhole in the Raw timeslot in terms of entertainment. Any real WWE fans who are of Italian descent will not go nuts everytime he fights. He won the Intercontinental championship at Milan, Italy (on Raw) through the help of a miracle. That is also part of his gimmick. He is the "Milan Miarcle." And lastly, when he retained his championship at the pay-per-view Vengeance through disqualification of his opponent (Umaga was disqualified because he wouldn't stop hitting Santino when the referee told him otherwise), no one gave two shits about him winning. The match was booed heavily by the crowd only to be broken by positive cheers when Umaga gave courageous Santino a Somoan Spike. The crowd chanted "One more time! One more time! One more time!"
Santino Marella has been argued to be the next John Cena in terms of him being given huge pushes with barely any cool moves at all.
