sorry y'all my computer must have messed up.

What i was trying to say was is it just me or does Perfect look lost in the ring right now. Its sad to see me watch him as this shell of his former self. Even his promos seem Lost in space(except cheating to win chess). I was thinking he would have been good as a color comintator but he irng skills and mike skills seemed to be diminished hard. the promo and m,atch the other night with Tazz were terrible.It seems like he is drunk in there. He reminds me of Terry Gordy after he came back after being in a coma. Just not the same.
Or maybe its just me

i have to agree...everytime i see perfect in the ring, his style just doesn't jive with the other person. It does make him look rather "lost" in the ring...

I agree with him seeming lost . . . why'd we carry this angle out of the Rumble with vignettes and everything anyway?

I mean, being in my late 20s, I love the retro character returns. It was the coolest that Mr. Perfect was in there at the very end of the Rumble, as if an upset could have occurred . . . and had some positive thoughts that something might have come out of this angle-wise.

However, 2-8 as a record doesn't really get a "Perfect" character over.

I'd really like to see Mr Perfect wrestle one of the main event wrestlers, unless your RVD you don't get very far wrestling the wwf's bush squad. I know he faught Austin on raw awhile ago, but it was one of those matches where there was no bloody chance in hell austin was gonna lose. a ppv match may be different.

I feel a little sad and often times uncomfortable watching Hennig on WWF television these days and it is becoming painfully obvious that he was just cherry-picked from the XWF to kill any momentum that the promotion had, rather than brought in because the WWF actually wanted him.
He was one of my absolute favorite guys in 1989/1990 and I would be hard pressed to think of a middle card heel who was ever better all around at his peak than Hennig was. Kurt Angle is very reminiscent of an old school Hennig though in my opinion minus the cartoonish over selling.
In 2002 though Hennig's promos are embarassingly outdated and I can't help but feel bad for the guy when he looks nervous in the ring and either mis-spits his gum or misses catching it a good 50% of the time these days.
I think he would be perfect in the managerial role and molding a new face into the next "Mr. Perfect". Most people hate him but I think Shawn Stasiak has a hell of a lot of potential and would be perfect in the role. The same goes for Sean O'Hair & Mike Sanders.
I don't quite know how a Mr. Perfect main event level feud would go but I just don't think he is modern enough to keep most WWF marks interest these days.

While it's good to have him and the character back in the wwf, I agree with you guys, it's hard to watch him trying to be his former self.

That being said, I do think the wwf needs some throw-backs- guys with essentially the same personas of years ago, but updated better- I wouldn't want a return to cartoony wrestling, but would love to see a new demolition, or something like that (yeah, i'm crazy).

I think the perfect spot for henning (i kill me) would be as head of a heel-stable that only wrestles every now and then.

I could see Mr.Perfect going on the lookout for the "Perfect Protage" this owuld be a great way to introduce one of the many devlopmental talents the WWF has floating around waiting to be on TV.

Following the punking out with a clean submission loss kind of makes people forget about the pre-match arrogance.
