According to 411 through someplace else, Dr. Death Steve Williams will be returning for a tryout this weekend on RAW house shows. Now, even though Williams was washed up when he was last in the WWF/E 5 years ago, in theory his return isn't as bad as other washed up has beens. Now, the real problem: Can anyone really stomach Jim Ross calling Dr. Death matches on RAW? Between Oklahoma references/hoss references/108 stitch references it will be sickening to listen to. Thus, if Dr. Death does return, don't put him near the show Good Ol' JR calls.

What about if they did some kind of tension between JR and Doc? Something about how Ross couldn't save his job last time in, and now they're no longer friends. Between the aborted angle circa 97 and the WCW stuff that followed, enough people know the history there. Maybe I'm thinking too Russo-ish, but it would be a good way to re-introduce the character.
Although, knowing the WWE, he'll probably end up in an angle with Rico or something....

Apparently it's supposed to be just a hometown thing, like David Flair getting dark matches this week. Although if they were to do something with Dr. Death, they should give him Piper's Pit. God only knows what crazy shit he would talk about. It would be brilliant.

Hokey smoke, my mind reels at the thought of Steve/Lesnar, Steve/Rhyno, Steve/Benoit slobberknockers.

My 1986 NWA bruiser fanboy sense is tingling.

Regarding the heat between JR and Doc, it stems from the fact that Doc got his ass handed to him in the "Brawl for All" by Bart Gunn and JR was basically powerless to stop him from getting released. He then went to WCW which had stolen Ed Ferrara/Vince Russo. Ferrara played the god-awful "Oklahoma" character (which was a less-than-subtle dig at JR) and Doc came out with Ferrara to the ring on several ocasions. Needless to say, JR was not happy about it. Since it's wrestling, though, I'm sure since Doc is a "hoss" from JR's home state, all is forgiven. This nostalgia trend is leaving me a bit underwhelmed, to say the least.

That's what I was thinking. Is this some sort of bizarre power competition between the two? Who can use their hookups to get fat, broken down hasbeens, a job?

Despite the past, I am extremely interested in seeing him in the WWE. Plus, he'll have the coolest nickname there.

A guy known for using the backdrop driver, up against Edge, Angle, or Rhyno? Well, that would be.....interesting.

Christ, they all but banned the PILEDRIVER, and have lost a horde of guys to neck injuries. If Williams even considers the notion of breaking out the Backdrop Driver in the WWE, McMahon will have him shot, cleaned, stuffed and mounted.

They should change his gimmick and have him come out wearing a stethoscope and Jack Kevorkian's suicide machine. That's money.

In the days of the Varsity Club, his finisher was the Oklahoma Slam, the same move Rodney Mack was using as a finisher until two weeks ago.

If were to book Steve on RAW, I'd shoehorn him into the APA.

Dr. Death would fit in as the third Acolyte, and a rotation might be in the best interest of that team since Ron Simmons and Bradshaw both have injury histories.

Hell, I like old Doc. I remember when he was with JR during the crazy JR stint and I enjoyed the hell out of it. As a matter of fact, I remember him destroying both Hardy Boyz in a handicap match. I say bring him back!
