Dear WWE,

Please do not do away with the Hurricane angle. I have so much fun watching him pose and fly through the air. I love his cute catch phrases, and he has the snazziest cape in all of wrestling. The Hurricane is by far one of my favorite wrestlers on Smackdown, and I would be very sad to see a serious Shane/Gregory Helms wrestling after all the joy the Hurricane has brought into my viewing experience.

Love,
Lise

(still getting used to the new company name)

Dear Lise,

Our opinion on the matter is as follows:

I actually agree...Hurricane is a pretty cool character. I've taken more of a liking to him in the past few weeks. (It's just kind of weird to hear his voice [southern/white boy trying to be black accent?] and then he says "There's a Hurricane coming through!"). He should get a pretty good pop the first shot he gets in to Nidia. I hope it's one of those oldschool "Nidia's on the apron distracting the ref, Hurricane goes over to grab her, Noble coming up from behind, Hurricane moves out of the way, Nidia goes flying" deals.

I also agree with P_Funk and DMC.


And also did you last night when Nidia was wearing Hurricane's cape she looked like Dr.Doom but without the mask.(it looks like her face has been burned though)

I personally think that wrestling should have more superhero gimmicks.Remember that Lance Storm/Hurricane tag team that lasted for a few weeks,I was thinking they could turn Storm into Captain Canada or something and make him kinda a reluclant superhero.It may not have worked but i would probably get him more over than he is now.

Hell,now he can't get over with a jet pack right now.

His lightning mapleleaf thing on his li'l Titantron is cool though.

Well, if they were to have used the Captain Canada name for Storm, then they probly would have had to negotiate some kind of deal to use the name (at least in canada).

at least he'd look cool in the outfit. and another picture.

I agree. they totally dropped the ball by not making the person leaving him the notes some sort of super villian arch-nemesis. That woulda been so badass! I was praying for Shannon Moore for the role, but alas, i've been disappointed yet again. It's not too bad, though. I've had a lot of fun quoting Jamie Knoble over and over again. "I'm Jamie Knoble boy! Boy! Boy! She's my woman boy!"

I was hoping hey would bring someone like Nova or someone like that.Nova has had the superhero gimmick forever and I thought It would killer to bring him back as "Dark Nova" or something.

I also agree with what you said about Shannon Moore.You could have brought him in as a former sidekick who was shunned by The Hurricane and went nuts.Hell,you could have made him a deranged weatherman and named him Doppler.

But right now the WW(F)E has bigger fish to fry than getting more superhero gimmicks in the federation
(Steve Austin,I'm looking in your direction)

Which is sad because the few superhero gimmicks I have seen were mad over except for possibility of Gorrilla Monsoon portral of Batman.

(ohh....Monsoon,thats a good name for Hurricane's arch-nemesis..............nah)

Why the heck did they de-mask hurricane, anyway? The least they could have done is waited until KOTR to demask him...

Hopefully this is not the end of the hurricane gimmick, it's one of the few reamaining things i enjoy in the WWE.

Why would it be the end of the Hurricane gimmick? They ripped his mask off. It's not really a big deal or anything.

Yeah, God knows Michael Cole wasn't paying attention. “Jaime Knoble is making a statement!”

Jackass. Why the hell did they give that guy a broadcasting degree? I suppose if you think about it, Cole's an inspiration to us all. “Yes, even the most annoying idiot who doesn't know a damn thing about wrestling can one day be a WWF announcer!”

Unmasking him ain't no big deal..everyone who has watched WCW or WWF the past two years would know that the Hurricane is Shane Helms.

Actually I hear more of a Louisiana accent rather than a "black" one.

I like Tazz more every week also. At least he remembers that SD and Raw are having a "feud". Way to make the fans believe the WWE is really into it.
