I'm sorry to see him go...I actually liked him in the LOD, even though he didn't stop that schlocky arm thing of his, and didn't switch to full length/matching tights that Animal wore.

I kinda thought that he would have asked for a released around when Hurricane Katrina hit the New Orleans coast, since he's based around there.

I'm sad to see him go, if only because I was hoping to see Lanny Poffo come back to challenge him for the title of WWE Poet Laureate.

    Amen ekedolphin. This really doesn't surprise. These talent vacuums. These workrate criminals, these behemoths and slugs? Guys like Heidenreich, Nathan Jones, Matt Morgan, etc. they don't last. They don't have longevity. Chris Masters is going to join them sooner or later.


I admit didn't much care to watch Heidenreich wrestle, but he was miles better than both Nathan Jones and Matt Morgan. Big John had more mic skills than either of those guys. And the Masterpiece is far far ahead of all three of them - this guy can actually sell and make his opponents offense look credible. I'm not saying he's great, but he's far from being worthless.

Good luck to Heidenreich.

    The biggest problem with Heidenreich is that they always wanted to push him as a big scary monster, but I hear that backstage he was pretty much the greatest guy in the entire world, and he always came off like that in the ring. Whether he was painting his face like a skull or anally raping Michael Cole, you could just sense that he was acting and wanted to split a large platter of boneless buffalo wings with him. If you ever met him, he'd probably make up a cutesy nickname for you, slap you on the back and ask you "How's it hangin'?" The guy was clearly a big goofy lug. Unfortunately, "big goofy lug" pushes never work, so it had to be scary monster.


Sounds alot like Mark Henry.

Am I crazy, or did I hear somewhere that Animal had an insurance settlement that only allowed him to work tag matches? Of course, enough time may have passed to contractually remove that limitation.

Regardless, that still leaves the question of who the hell wants to see Animal in a singles program??

And the question of who wants to see Animal full stop?

But I have to say that having Big John and Animal teaming together was fine, while it was never pretty at least it added to the smackdown tag division which has gotton pretty strong. I would love to see wwe push their current tag division fairly hard along with the cruiserweights (off topic I know) but with the main event fairly empty this is where Smackdown will get most of its strengths from. It seems Matt Hardy will be buried even further for his bail out against Taker which has seen his return to Smackdown a complete waste of time.

But back to Heidenreich, even though I said some nice things about the guy, he cant work, never has been able to and never will be able to. Every time I watched him in a singles match I got the distinct feeling that he didnt know what he was going to do next. Getting rid of him probably wasn't the best idea right now, but, I am happier in the knowledge that he won't be back in a WWE ring as a singles wrestler now than I would be if I were living in fear of a feud with him and Animal somewhere down the line...

Well, in memory of Hei-Den-Reich's WWE tenture, I give you (courtesy of YouTube.com): The Snitsky/Heidenreich Classics - in all of its creepy glory.

Most of the time I am able to ignore the homoerotic overtones of watching a form of entertainment consisting of oiled-up bodybuilders in tiny tights rolling around and groping each other.

That video makes it just that much harder for me to do that. I feel like I just spent the day with Uncle Badtouch.
