    Originally posted by Anthony Cali
    STATE COLLEGE, PA Ė Videos have been airing for weeks now, proclaiming that "the Masterpiece" Chris Masters was coming to RAW. As time went on, the anticipation surrounding Masters WWE debut only seemed to grow, as did his hype.

    On Monday night, "the Masterpiece" lived up to that hype. The chiseled newcomer made short work of Steven Richards, forcing him into submission with a very familiar submission maneuver - the Full Nelson. After Mastersí victory, he took a moment to soak in the raucous Penn State crowd before retreating to the backstage area.

    "People call me the Masterpiece because Iím the perfect creation," said Masters. "I mean just look at my body. There isnít anyone else like me, and that is why I claim the right to call myself Chris Masters, ďthe Masterpiece." I mean how cool is it that I had a 16-time World Champion waiting outside my limo to personally greet me on my debut night. That's pretty special."

    "Stevie Richards was just the beginning of my conquest of World Wrestling Entertainment," continued 'the Masterpiece'. "Unfortunately for him, he was the first victim Ė and got a broken nose Ė but that list is not going to end there. One by one, Iím going to dismantle every WWE Superstar, until finally Iím the guy headlining RAW. Iím the guy holding the World Heavyweight Championship. Iím the one with all the prestige."

    Like many of the large, muscular Superstars that have come before him, Masters will have to prove that he is a lot more than just a great body. With the competition at an all-time high, the world will soon find out if Masters is as masterful as his videos have been advertising. But if his debut is any sign of things to come, "the Masterpiece" appears to be at the very beginning of a huge career here in WWE.

    "The future only looks bright from my point of view," exclaimed Masters. "Iím 22-years old, and 6-foot-4, 270 pounds of perfection. Just imagine what Iíll be like in the next five years, or even the next 10 years. Iím going to be dominant in this business, and thereís no way anyone can dispute that."


While I understand that this is a propaganda piece and nothing more, I still can't believe that anyone could look at themselves in the mirror after having to write plain ol' bold-faced LIES like that ...

It's been a lot of years since I've seen a crowd that unenthusiastic about anyone debuting on a prime time TV show. I don't think I've ever sat through a dark match with such an apathetic audience.

Who can blame them? He looked like something from the dying days of WCW Saturday Night. A Power Plant graduate, or something.


Schiavone: So, Brain, what can you tell me about this Chris Masters?

Heenan: I have it on good authority that he's got a good chance of beating Kenny Kaos here tonight.

Schiavone: Stay tuned for our main event folks, -- Van Hammer and Sgt. Craig Pittman take on Fidel Sierra and Reis!

I know that Masters' debut was just a bit short of spectacular, but I don't understand why everyone has to completely shit all over him after a single two minute match. So the crowd was dead, what does that mean? Should they have been eating out of the palm of his hand?

Again, I'll grant that the chances that he fails are probably greater than the chances that he succeeds, but man, give the guy half a chance.

He was signed only due to his body. I don't think he had even been training for more than a couple months when they signed him up.

The thing that'll kill him the most was that the crowd was pretty good last week - they just did not want to be bothered with anything else but the Batista angle. Shelton woke them up, as did the Hassan/Daivari encounter with Benoit, but they had nothing for the Masterpieceofshit.

He got less a reaction than the useless diva contestants - the crowd knows filler when it's shoved at them.

... a match that he finished using the Full Nelson (not quite as bad as Mark Henry using the Bear Hug as a finishing move, but still).

Was anyone else reminded of the debut of Brakkus on RAW many years back? You know, big muscular guy who debuted in a squash, had awful theme music, elicited absolutely zero crowd interest and then as far as I know wasn't seen on RAW ever again?

On a side note, you'd think someone in WWE would veto the idea of using a Full Nelson as a finisher, since I can't ever remember the move being over...granted, I'm only 23, but still.

Circa 1987. Billy Jack Haynes vs. Hercules Hernandez in a Full Nelson Match at Wrestlemania III. That's about it for me though.

Well, there was Bob Holly in the lead up to the Rumble match against Lesnar, but that was ill-advised as well, what with Lesnar being twice his size, PLUS they had a perfectly good chance to put over the Nelson as legit in the no-DQ submission match against Big Show, but instead Holly rapped Show's head in a chair and pulled.
