Think of it this way.  He has been on television for more than a decade.  Do you remember him ever saying anything funny?

In a backstage segment, he (pretended) to be on the phone, and quickly said something to the effect of, "Hi, mom.  Yeah, I lost again, but it's okay. I tried really hard."

I'm not defending Ziggler, but let's be fair.  He's said the funniest thing on RAW in the last decade.

When will he start putting on something that's entertaining?

I don't think he even wants Raw to exist post his death.

I think Raw would be better off as one hour imo.

Matthew McConaughey claiming he was thrown out of a show in the 80s for throwing a bag of tomatoes at Skandor Akbar is not something I expected to hear today (That story is in the last like 20 seconds of the clip)

Think they'd give Ali the title, and put it back on D-Bry come Sunday?

I only skipped to that part of the clip, but Cena constantly cutting off McConaughey while he’s marking out ruins it a bit.

I said the other day he needs to be on Austin's pod telling World Class stories.

What Vince meant was "I'm an anti-semite, nazi sympathizer".

So this idea popped in my head; I was thinking about when Giant joined the nWo along with Bischoff in November of 96 and  the rumors that the new member was going to be either Davey or Bret. So with Dynamites passing I got to thinking. I know Dynamite was wrestling in Japan in 96. I don't know if he was in any condition to have a run or not as he ended up in a wheel car in 97. My question is would Dynamite Kid in the nWo have worked or would it have been a trainwreck? I mean I know it would have all imploding as there's no way Dynamite could co-excist woth Hogan Hall or Nash but would the initial reveal of Dynamite attacking Piper have gone over? Would the WCW crowd have remembered Dynamite in 96?

MJF is the best.

And I just discovered Olde Wrestling:

Simon Gotch and Antonio Honda and the various factions he and Dick Togo were in would fit right in.

Jock Samson is someone that you all should get familiar with. The guy is hilarious, cuts good heel or face promo's and can go in the ring. Plus he does planchas.  The guy is a machine.

Dynamite playing his backstage self in the nwo would had worked. Probably would had downplayed the workrate but whatever. If we ignore the wheelchair thing happening, would had great matches.

Watch Dynamite at the M-Pro show in 96. He was in no condition to even travel.

Now, I'm going to be a little bit sad thinking what if Dynamite never suffered the back injury. Forget the nWo, but imagine Dynamite mixing it up with prime Benoit, prime Eddy, Malenko, Jericho, Mysterio, Ultimo Dragon, Regal, Finlay, Juvi, Psicosis, etc.

IIRC, he suffered a stroke the next day.

The thing is the back injury was going to happen. Between the steroids, the schedule and how he worked, he was going to get badly hurt. Even Dynamite felt that from how he wrote about it in the book. 

Of noble things Dynamite did, his love for his mentor was touching. Even if he was going to maim Brutus Beefcake to avenge him.

God, he looked so bad there. He must’ve REALLY needed that payday. He looked like a cosplayer.

Was that the time he dropped acid, and zonked our at Spivey’s house?

You say that second part like it diminishes the spirit of the first sentence.

And yes, Dynamite Kid having a Curt Hennig-like recovery after a few years not wrestling would have resulted in a lot of gold. Even in just 1996 alone, DK could have had some fun matchups in ECW with folks like Scorpio, Sabu, and Mikey Whipwreck / NJPW Junior wars with Liger, Otani, Ultimo, and Sasuke / or in the WCW cruiserweight bully role that Malenko was in mixing it up with Rey and Eddie on Nitro and PPV and a near endless abundance of athletic undercarders in awesome 7-minute sprints on Worldwide and Pro that would surely be making up half the "WCW C-Show Memories" thread.
