Billy Gunn isn't doing the Jackhammer any more. Coincidence?

The funny thing is, if there was ANY time he should have a finisher named "The Jackhammer", it'd be now.

Most likely yes. Or too many people worried about him snapping someone's neck, not that we haven't seen that problem with the Rocker Dropper before. I guess they figure the people taking it now are more likely to know how to take the move clean.



There, I feel better now.

Have you also noticed that Al Snow isn't on TV doing his Snowplow as of late? I smell a conspiracy against Jackhammers and Jackhammer-type moves. (An Aside: either that or peanut butter.)

I did notice something else along those lines. Test is now going under the top rope. As not to look like a certain ex-Diesel. I wonder how soon it will before he stops wearing the leather pants?

Hummm, are ya'll over analyzing...or it is just me blindly hoping the Bald population in the WWF doesn't raise any time soon?

I think it's an interesting question, but I think it falls into the "Billy might kill someone" category for why he doesn't do the Jackhammer anymore. It scared me to death when he wrestled Benoit and almost killed him with that tilt-a-whirl slam once. He doesn't do that move much anymore, either.

But as for Test going under the ropes now, it's pretty obvious they're trying to do something to make him look different than Diesel. That was almost the whole point of Test in the first place, being a Nash-alike. I sense the loosing of the pants pretty soon.

Test hasn't been coming in over the ropes for quite some time now.
Billy Gunn using the Jackhammer was probably too big a risk.

However, have you noticed that recently nobody has really 'hulked out' of a sleeperhold?
Sign of things to come?
And D'Lo, Godfather and X-Pac havent been on tv for a while, and they all did some sort of legdrop move in their matches.
Oh, and Test stopped saying 'sweet' which he did a few weeks in a row.
Kane used to do a side walk slam kinda move, has he been doing that one since last year even?

Point: I am rambling but trying to say don't read too much into certain things all the time.

Have you also noticed that only now the WWF refs are calling count-outs in matches? I wonder why...

No, really, I wonder why. I never liked the "count-out" finish.

Nice signs of the coming apocolypse but I really do not know if Nash/Hall/Hogan coming in would cause that much of a disruption. Who knows? Maybe I am wrong?

Yes.

I have it on good sources that the WWF is trying to spend huge amounts of money to bring back The Iron Shiek, Nikoli Volkov and Dusty Rhodes to form the Old World Order. That's why nobody is doing the Camel Clutch, singing the Russian National Anthem, or wearing polka dots anymore.

My sources also say that the plan is to feud them with the nWo, until Hogan shockingly jumps to the oWo. The WWF is hoping that by Summerslam they'll be able to do their huge, money-drawing "hip replacement angle".

Is that the rumored angle with Roddy Piper crawling out, and yelling some random local team names before getting his hip surgery in the ring?

And btw..I thought Slaughter WAS making a comeback of sorts *giggle*

And on the count-out..i guess they only use it when it comes in handy. Usually half way through the ref goes out and urges the wrestlers to get back in..thus breaking his own count.

And heaven forbid the referee remember what number he was on when he returned to the ring.
