  1. To the best of my recollection, the plan was for HBK to return the job to Bret. Both their shoot interviews talked about how they planned this prosthetic boot for Shawn to wear, and Bret would "break" Shawn's ankle with the ankle lock and put him out. No idea what Austin does if that ended up happening
  2. That picture of Tyson Kidd on WWE.com atm is creepy. Looks a lot like Benoit.
  3. I think in the Meltzer thread it was supposed to be Hogan, The Road Warriors and.....Hennig? Bringing Pillman in 18 months earlier than they did probably would have made sense, and probably helps exacerbate the heel turn beyond "well....Hogan's here now." On a similar note, if Hogan is coming back to the WWE in any capacity, I'd love to see him brought in as part of the Authority, if only as a device to wind up the storyline. Who knows better what's best for business, brother, than the guy who made the business? if HHH is supposed to be this caricature of what the internet perceive him to be, I'd love to see a similar role for what Hogan has been perceived to be during the late 90s. Have them backstage discussing Intercontinental title contenders or something, and Hogan dismisses say, Maddox's proposals for The Miz/Kofi/whoever else is in midcard limbo, and brings up Brian Knobbs as a viable contender. You can either rely on the crowd to give him a nostalgia pop and a "You've still got it!" chant for no apparent reason that Hogan can then point to as being best for business, or they'll completely shit on him, and they can play him as the deluded self-serving prick. Eventually you build up to the idea that HHH is outgunned in terms of playing politics with the likes of Hogan, you may even get a worked shooty promo with Shawn in there as well. Eventually Hogan's hip is shattered to a million pieces and you do the ending to The Wrestler meets the ending to Poochy.
  4. How many of the Villanos are still active? If any..
  5. They need to have Daniel Bryan emerge from the ocean ala Mark Lewin. Only then..
  6. I went to a WWE press conference in 2002. I opened a door for Vince McMahon and got a hearty "Thanks, pal!" from him. Stacy Keibler and Mark Henry weren't so accommodating. Have never left my air bill unpaid since that day.
  7. Pfft. It was Rick Steiner. Took him twenty years to get revenge on "Robin Green". That text message about the dogs being near the pool? The same dogs he used on Sting. The Daniel Benoit autopsy showing that he was probably crossfaced? Same botched top rope bulldog that he used on Bagwell.
  8. If the WWE Network ever gets approved, what do you all think about them cancelling Raw and Smackdown, and going with new programming? They're both tired and cliched formats, and think it would present a good opportunity to rehash the presentation, maybe even slow the pace down? I see the point in keeping the RAW name - longest running show, blah blah blah, but think that there may be benefits to it..
  9. Hire him, put him under a mask or stupid gimmick. Eventually have one of those Jim Ross interviews that they had with Goldust/Foley to reveal the real David Benoit when the time is right/heat dies down
  10. I'd like to see him given a Sherlock Holmes gimmick as he attempts to wander backstage at WWE events and solve the Curious Case of the Benoit Murders. Instead of Asian mist, he could blind people with smoke coming out his pipe, and I know I'd mark for a loaded deerstalker shot. Bring in some guy as his Watson too.
  11. Badger & Skinny Pete. Even if it's more Talking Bad than Breaking Bad.
  12. It'll be like Kanyon hitting the Cutter on random people at random times in random places. Only replace 'people' with 'his woman' and 'hitting the Cutter' with 'slapping'. The Funkadactyls become Naomi and Cameron Woods. Xavier starts referring to them both each week as "Anna Mae" and forcing them to eat cake...
  13. It's a weird Butterfly effect really. Austin walks Don't get Austin/Eddy at KOTR Austin/Eddy/Benoit all probably feud throughout summer of 02 Probably don't get Smackdown Six as a result Maybe Austin/Angle vs. Eddy/Benoit instead? Do we end up with a small Austin/Hogan program afterwards as well?
  14. They need to do a double-fall tag tournament similar to the one they had in early 99 WCW which Windham and Hennig won. Gives them a very decent excuse to run the same matches over and over again if nothing else. If they're half serious about putting the Usos over as something remotely meaningful, have them lose clean to the Shield in an early tournament match, then give them a clean pin in the PPV finals, semi-Dusty finish only to recall that it's double fall rules, both teams now have one fall each, and the Shield go on to win by nefarious means. Hell, have it so that Reigns had a clean pin anyway, but they count Rollins cheating to win instead, further causing dissention. Reigns gets the Diesel spot in the Rumble, gets blindsided by Ambrose/Rollins and eliminated. Murders Rollins at EC, gets jumped by Ambrose afterwards. Reigns squashes Ambrose at Mania in 30 seconds, wins the US title with the slow build toward him holding both titles and eventually vacating the US title.
  15. Its a pity that HHH shaved his head when he did. Hair vs. beard for Mania would have tied in nicely with the comparisons to Jericho and Edge, and how there could only ever be one guy with long blonde hair on the roster.
  16. You would have had ALL the likes if you mentioned a flag pole being at full salute. Would you settle for a valet being found for the group off Cougarlife.com?
  17. "FOLLOW THE BUZZARDS" "WHAT?" "I SAID, FOLLOW THE BUZZARDS......TO ONNIT DOT COM SLASH STEVE TO GET YOUR DISCOUNT, YOU MIGHT BE THINKING HELL SON, I'M A MESSIANIAC CULT LEADER ADONIS, I DON'T NEED NO T-PLUS, I'M ALREADY AS SATANIC AS IT IS....."
  18. John Cena heel turn that involves hooking up with Stephanie, and Stephanie trying to convince HHH into a three way relationship, guilting him over Kurt. Cena then becomes depressed over the constant "You can't wrestle" chants, HHH then offers to show him some holds, only for Stephanie to walk in on him showing her an abdominal stretch, ala Trish. Stephanie then leaves them both for the two Bella twins, who then form PMS 2000, along with a repackaged Daniel Bryan who is given a Sean Stasiak tribute gimmick and renamed Tofu. CM Punk disapproves of the gay union between HHH and John Cena, and reforms the Totally Straight Edge Society, before tying John Cena to a rainbow "symbol" to end an episode of RAW, and creates an unholy alliance with The Wyatt family, being backwater Southerners who also disapprove of dem gays. The angle then devolves into a "doth protest too much" focus on Bray Wyatt who becomes wrestling's first real Bear in wrestling....exposing the prejudiced attitudes of the locker room afraid of locking up with a gay man. Him and Darren Young form an unlikely dancing duo tag team.
  19. Team Australia to provide cannon fodder for the prelim matches would probably be Bill Dundee, Orlando Jordan (living here permanently now), The Bushwhackers (referred as here rather than NZ during WWF run) and Outback Jack.
  20. Is there a worse episode of wrestling TV than the 6-7-99 episode of Nitro? The aforementioned Mexican death match that gets treated like shit. The contortionist/sewerage angle The hummer/limo angle The weird promo between Piper and Bagwell asking him how many times he wrestled at MSG? The tag title switch involving 2 guys that weren't in the match to begin with. You could also add the Hak/Bischoff confrontation, which was awesome initially, but went nowhere, and seemingly only served as a vehicle for Bischoff to give away the Higher Power angle? Wow, the Higher Power reveal was on the same night, and it wasn't even the most nonsensical bit of TV that night.
  21. As fun as the Survivor Series matches are, it makes sense not to have them from the perspective that you're booking yourself into a corner with anywhere between 4 and 7 guys eating pins each match, or that there's only so many screwy finishes you can use without overdoing them on the same card. That Team Piper vs. Team Flair match from 91 serves as a pretty good example of it.
  22. Was that really the out at the end when the district attorney is all "Well, they didn't say whether it'd be a pile of bodies or not..." Fuck off, if so.
  23. None of that made any sense. Is Happy still with the Chinese? Why are they leveraging Pope over them when they have one of their own hostage? Why would they fuck themselves over with the deal with the Feds? That story they give the Kings seems incredibly unbelievable.
