I'm sure we've all noticed that Jeff tries to interject the Nintendo Download news any opportunity he gets.  Thus, his persona is established. 
 
I'm curious as to where this gimmick would rank all-time if Jeff where in the WWE today. 
 
On a scale of 1 to Mankind, I'd put him at John Cena.  You know, kinda lame, but hopefully athleticism would help him climb the ladder.

So, is the NintenDownload X-Press a card Persona, or a "shoot yerself in the head" Persona?

@RecSpec: Man, the fame-asser was a great finisher.  The WWE not giving him a bigger push was a big mistake.  Why they had him lose at Summerslam after the King of the Ring, I will never know.  And he deserved another push even after that. 
 
As far as Jeff's gimmick, I would say he is up there with...  the Rock, or Undertaker.

His gimmick is at least a bit better than this classic:

Whatever it is, I hope it ends soon. It's rather annoying.

This is far from a gimmick, this is real life. Podcasting is real.

Come on guys! You gotta know your wrestlers if you are gonna talk wrestling. Jeff is clearly not quite at Macho Man status in pomp... but maybe at the level of Jake the Snake Roberts. I wonder if Classy Freddie Blassie, Lou Albano, or Jimmy Hart can be summoned to manage Jeff. Wait... I don't think Jimmy Hart is dead. We've got Jeff a manager!

He's like Cena circa 2004.
 
 
Back when he was the US Champion and during his push for JBL's WWE Championship. One man standing against the oppressive regime of JBL's entire Cabinet (Ryan's entire Bombcast).

No. No he's not. Cena is booked poorly which is why you get shit like him getting wailed on for ten minutes and then busting out five moves and getting the pin. Cena has in ring ability.

It was at a house show. The crowd was chanting the usual "CENA SUCKS! CENA SUCKS!" and they tossed in a bit of "YOU CAN'T WRESTLE!" and Cena started actually pulling out moves that he doesn't do on Raw or on PPVs, showing that, yes he does know how to wrestle and is competent in the ring. After showing the moves, the crowd fell back on "CENA STILL SUCKS." 
 
That wasn't even the first time, either.

"I had a dream recently where Jeff joined the WWE.  His entrance music was that Wii Shop music, and when he came out, he was dressed like his avatar from the Game Room videos. But the entrance was like 93-95 era WWF, where it's dark and the wrestlers walked down the aisle with personalized lights (ie, Owen Hart had hearts), and Jeff's lights made a Jungler snake. Also, part of his wrestling mask lit up and blinked. When he got in the ring, he got on the mic and said, "That's J, E, Double F. G, E, R-S-T... M, A, Double N! Jeff Gerstmann. Ain't I great?" and then proceeded to strut like Double J as well. Woke up before the actual match, but that was an entrance fit for a king. "

I wish I could live your dreams 
 
I think Jeff only needs to pull off a Giant Bomb Stunner on Ryan every week on the Bombcast and we got the new Steve Austin
