Vince watching Columbo and getting a hankering for a detective gimmick/angle?

I don’t follow WWE but I’ll assume this is from that and not a pr0n parody.

imagine a Kojak knockoff gimmick because Vince decided to watch different 70s shows. Not sure if they could use "Who Loves Ya Baby" without the Savalas estate noticing

Do you want them to make WALTER, sorry, Gunther shave his head? Because this how you get them to make WALTER, sorry, Gunther shave his head.

What do you call it when a beloved hero is replaced, with a character you don’t like? “Step-father Syndrome”? I was four years old, and I had that strong feeling of “Who the fuck do you think you are? You aren’t Hulk Hogan”. It also didn’t help that Warrior acted like an unreasonable monster during that build.

The best bar trivia team name I've heard was, "The Stepdads, because you don't like us and we beat you".

With how chaotic WWE is, I fully expect Vince hearing Columbo in any way to be the catalyst for the return of the WBF. With Vince trying to recrute Franco Columbo, who died in 2019.

Kind of like the production meeting for the Radioactive Man Movie in the Simpsons episode. What a great episode that was *sigh

Vince would not take Peter Falk when he realizes that he already was "on national television" before (Peter Falk playing a wrestling manager in the 1981 movie "...All the Marbles").

Vince would redo the Seth/Rey eye angle if he had Peter Falk.

He'd have Peter Falk narrate old episodes of RAW to a bedridden Dominik.

Grandpa: It was ten days to the wedding. Vince still lived, but Stephanie's nightmares were growing steadily worse.

Dominik: See, didn't I tell you she'd never marry that rotten The Undertaker?

Grandpa: Yes, you're very smart. Shut up.

I swear I've seen him running around with a hat and magnifying glass like Sherlock Holmes once. It has to have happened, right? 

Yes

Just had the absolute pleasure of meeting Bryan Danielson.  I asked him about NJPW and he told me he was supposed to already be there but due to Covid and a 2 week quarantine he just can't do it right now.  Hoping things are better by the G1 as he really wants to be in this year.  Couldn't have been a nicer guy.  One of the rare ones who didn't charge for autographs or pics.

Very cool! Where did you meet him?

He is in Pittsburgh at the David L Lawrence for the World of Wheels Convention.  I expected to pay $50 like when Sting was here last year but it was all free and he couldn't have been nicer. He spent time talking with everyone for as long as they wanted.  Not a huge line to meet him either. Only thing was they asked not to bring personal items as they gave out free 8x10's and took 2 pics with your camera phone.

Vince: That biker Cher had chemistry with... he's got some real presence. Think we can get him in the ring?
Some Yes Man: Do...do you mean... Sam Elliot?
Vince: Christ what terrible name. Get him i nthe system and we'll call him Brick Porterhouse!

Elliott Samson was right there!

Seeing these pics of presumably atrocious WWE skits made the Riddle "baby Broda" abomination pop into my head and now I hate you all.

Since we don't have a "old school questions" thread anymore...

This sounds like an intriguing idea. Thoughts?

Nice one. LOVE, LOVE Bryan Danielson. Great to hear Bryan's as likeable as he comes across. It's impressive he plays such a great heel. Dickhead Danielson is my favourite incarnation.
