Fantasia himself is coming to ECW.

This is actually really awesome. Brad's always been quite the awesome worker and a nice guy to boot. Who knows if he can go, but a team with C-Dub would work. At the very least, he'll be a good veteran to have in the locker room for the younger guys to emulate

That's unnecessary. I think it's reasonable to expect that people know who Brad Armstrong is (or know how to find Wikipedia themselves - or even use Google! if they don't).

That said, a link to the original news item would have been helpful - or even ANY attribution to ANY source.

Assuming it's true, CHOOSE ONE:

A. OH MAN WHAT A BUZZKILL FAR OUT
B. Hmmm, first Scott, then Brad... Can a stunning return of Lance Cassidy be far behind?
C. Can I please shut down the next round of Road Dogg speculation before it begins?
D. I...don't have another one. Sorry. Maybe Justin will

Brad's presence strikes me as a replacement for Jerry Lynn. They have similar styles and ages. I haven't seen Brad work in awhile, but back in the day he was a reliable midcarder.

I only noticed recently that britishiles's signature mentions Brad:

"Now if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna go backstage. I'm proud of myself, I just beat Brad Armstrong!"
- Arn Anderson on WCW Saturday Night in 1992, in the classiest display I've ever seen of someone putting over an underrated mid-carder that everyone in the locker room knew deserved better than the push he got.

I might not be Justin, but I think the answer is obvious. Make way for The Bullet! First Foley, then Hogan, then Piper, Dusty is lurking about. It's obvious WWE is planning on instituting a Seniors Division!

Brad is older than Mick Foley so Brad would be in the seniors division before Mick. I don't consider someone who is 41 a senior either.

It's obvious they're doing a Freebirds Reunion. They would fit perfectly with the WWE pushing the tag team division again. They may even bring out the six man tag team division and have the Freebirds Feud with the Spirit Squad. It's a bummer he's signed by ECW though.

    [Insert another past Brad Armstrong gimmick] pun!


See what you've unwittingly unleashed, CRZ?

I, for one, am excited. I always wanted one of those "Armstrong Cruse" t-shirts (and no I'm not joking), and I'm hoping now they'll start selling them again. I can't say much for what he'll do for the in-ring product as a whole...he was criminally underrated in his day, but I haven't seen him wrestle in years. Has he been active in the indy scene at all?

They're about ten years too late with this signing. I know Brad was a good wrestler and all, but he's WAAAAAAY past his prime and putting him in ECW is a huge mistake. Why not sign him as a road agent or something, where he'd be infinitely more useful?

Come on, now...think about it! Who better than to lead CRYME TYME than one of the former NO LIMIT SOLDIERS? B.A. is the man for the job! Hootie Hoo!

And yes, I know that's ridiculous, but not as ridiculous as the announcer acting like he has street cred during those promos.

Is it an inside joke with EVERYONE criticizing the Cryme Tyme gimmick, or am I the only one that sees its a ridiculous parody thing?

We'll have to see how Brad does in ECW, but its not like he'll be spoiling a great product or anything.

No. I think the same thing too especially with the voice over. It reminds me of a Chapelle skit only not as funny or clever.

That's his brother Scott, who is a referee in ECW.

Rodney Mack's a veteran? By definition, I suppose he is. I just think it's funny that they've put him in the same category as Janetty and Armstrong.
