Once Zach gets out of the McMahon's orbit and into regular matches, would he be able to use his artificial leg as a legal weapon?

Would it fall into the classic heel schtick of the cast/chest protector/steel plate in the forearm?

If someone else used the leg in a tag match, would they have a five count to get it out of the ring?

I guess Zach has a lot of possibilities.

I've noticed he doesn't wrestle with the leg on. Is he unable to do so?

I want to see him lean it against the ropes before a match, then when he is in a submission or something, point to it and say "my foot is in the ropes."

I imagine it would be pretty hard. He can't move it, so it would just get in the way. I'm sure he is very adapted to hopping around and is much more mobile with it off.

I think he keeps the false leg on getting to the ring and looks like Q-Bert hopping around on his other leg inside but the kid takes crazy bumps . Surprised he hasnt broken his freakin' neck yet!

The leg he uses looks like a fairly simple prosthesis, not one of those high-tech titanium-hydraulics-and-carbon-fiber jobs that you occasionally see amputee athletes using. I doubt it'd be anything more than dead weight in the ring.

An interesting thing someone pointed out in the wrestlecrap mailbag is that technically wouldn't it be impossible for Zach to get eliminated from the Royal Rumble? I mean, the rule has always stated "Both feet must hit the ground to get eliminated." So since Zach only has one foot he could just keep getting knocked out the ring, and go back in. Right?

I'm sorry if I'm insensitive or anything - but this shit is just hilarious.

During the match we were also discussing the impossible moves in a Zack match - sharpshooter, figure 4, boston crab, headscissors, etc. It's a fun game....sigh...I'm sad.

That's going to be a glorious visual. Somebody like Flair going for a figure four of habit, and then suddenly realizing 'Oh shit.'

If Vince could go out and find a one-armed wrestler, what a interesting tag team Zack and him would make.

Any ideas what they could call themselves ?

Zach and Trogdor...call 'em "The Burninators!" Strong Bad could manage.

Acutally, there is a prosthesis that has a computer chip in the knee that controls the stride of the person walking, it is called a C-Leg. My wife had her leg amputated above the knee and has had one for 3 years now. It is really an amazing thing, as she can manage to go up and down hills, and other obstacles that usually give the hydraulic knees some problems.

I reckon the prostethsis is actually used to please Steph McMahon. That's why she hired Spanky wasn't it? Remember she looked impressed wasn't kid hebner taking him and as i've said before that's a guy who can take his bumps. I also like Spanky as well buut i'd prefer if he was more a heel. They should do something with him though

Actually, according to his website, his favourite finishing maneuver is a 1 Legged Figure Four.

Nevermind those, I don't even think anyone can give him a simple clothesline off the ropes. He'd have to hop over, bounce off, then hop back. He does a lot of crazy moves, but I think he's pretty limited in the basic moves he can execute...

He'd look good, with his arm sticking out of the back of his neck.

"The World's Worst Baseball Team"

Sure it's a little cumbersome, but imagine the video packages they could do to introduce them to wrestling!
