Conversely, I wonder where most American Indian characters were billed from.

I decided to track down the Kenny Omega match vs a 9 year old girl that according to certain people who will remain nameless killed pro wrestling. Quite frankly it was better in just about every aspect than the vast majority of WWE TV matches.

Listen to Kenny's story about it. They planned everything out well. The girl knew what she was doing. He was incredibly safe with her in the ring and she was well trained to do all of it. Random cranky people just don't like niche things that are different than what they demand everything always be.

There has been some movement on the planned cinematic biopic on WWE's Vince McMahon, Pandemonium, which is being put together by TriStar and WWE Studios.    

The current strategy is to try and attach an "A" level name to the project in order to fast track the project.  An offer was made several weeks ago to representatives of Academy Award nominee Bradley Cooper with the idea of Cooper starring as McMahon, according to a well placed source familiar with the project.   Whether Cooper is receptive to the idea remains to be seen, but PWInsider.com has confirmed the offer was made.

The script to Pandemonium was written by Craig A. Williams (who wrote Disney's live action Underdog adaptation few years back) back in 2015 and has undergone several drafts.   The belief was that once WWE Studios became involved with the project, the existing script would undergo heavy rewrites to remove some of aspects of the film that the McMahon family would not be happy with.  On Page 2 is a reprint of my April 2017 article looking at the then-existing versions of the screenplay, including some racy elements that would not factually match the McMahon family history.

Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, the team that directed the pilot for excellent NBC drama This is Us are attached to direct Pandemonium.   Their most feature film was Whiskey, Tango, Foxtrot, which starred Tina Fey.  Michael Luisi (head of WWE Studios, which came on board after the script was bouncing around Hollywood independent of WWE) and Aperture Entertainment's Adam Goldworn will produce.  Charlie Gogolak of Zaftig Films is attached as Executive Producer.

Cooper actually appeared, briefly, on a June 2007 episode of Monday Night Raw promoting the feature film version of The A-Team.

The answer here remains, Michael Shannon.

Is the old sour grump aware he also had several matches with Mr. #6?

Him and Mr. #6 facing Antonio Honda's team, Honda being in a Masked gimmick I do believe, with Kenny cutting a awesome goofy gaijin promo was the best.

Random thought-- I'm watching the 6/9/1997 Raw and spotted a sign that said "Vince, Don't Ruin Sasuke." Had a laugh because its 20 years later, and WWE still can't get a light heavyweight division right. Now, granted, I get the argument that since guys that size/style are now a little more ubiquitous on the card, the division is a little bit redundant, but even so, there are ways to do it I feel like

The best thing for Sasuke was not signing with the WWF. 

My favorite match of all time may still be Benoit vs. Sasuke from Super J Cup '94.  That's probably my favorite card of all time.

I can't wait for the movie about Vince written by Vince.

Oh God, he's going to finally find a place for that "masturbating with a three foot long dick" idea he came up with for See No Evil, isn't he?

No interest in watching a Vince McMahon biopic brought to you by WWE Studios.  It'll be worse than Notorious. 

But that's his best movie.

Combine it with the Steph/Vince angle that got shot down.
