Yeah, I know, not that many people liked the Job Squad. But they were the ONLY reason I watched the WWF for a long time. If it wasn't for Al and his merry band of tough, grizzled and bitter veterans, I'd probably have changed the channel for good. Now, Al is somewhat back on camera. I think the Squad should get back together, but only Al, and Hardcore Holly remain from the WWF lineup of the group.
THe question: Who should the lineup be, if they chose to re-form the group? I think it should be:
Al Snow - Yeah, obviously. Job Squad is HIS and his alone.
Hardcore Holly - Yeah, yeah. I don't like him, and I never have, EXCEPT during his time with the Squad. He had the perfect "disgruntled employee" vibe and could pull off the silent enforcer role almost as well as Arn Anderson and Chris Benoit.
Lance Storm - Remember Al Snow's classic speech in ECW. "Hey Al, put this guy over... I wanna put MYSELF over!" Who was he talking to? Lance. He and Al have worked together before and I like them on screen together. I can't really articulate it much beyond that. In a completely heterosexual way, they just seem RIGHT for each other as a team.
Perry Saturn - Every team needs that one guy who's just as likely to whip out a knife and slice you from belly to dick as shake your hand. Saturn has that "damn near homicidal" vibe.
Booker T - Former 5 time World champ, but when he comes to the WWF, he gets buried by JR and made to look like a buffoon. If anyone has a right to be disgruntled, it's him!
Kurt Angle - Dammit, I just don't want to break up the BK connection. What the hey, he doesn't get that much respect in the WWF anyway, welcome to da FAM-ily!
Christian - WWF's only fully registered jobber. Can't win a match to save his life. Even DDP couldn't take away the stench of perpetual failure! He needs an outlet for that frustrations, and participating in a steel chair assisted gang beatdown while wearing a "Pin Me, Pay Me" t-shirt may be just the thing.
The New JOB Squad. A twisted, dysfunctional version of "The Magnificent Seven"!

I think it'd be hilarious to see the Blue Boy strut down to the ring with his new svelte physique, as JR and King talk about his heightened skills and ability...then have him lose in under a minute. Heh.
