Jesus, wasn't this guy about 400 lbs in WCW? Although if he gets himself in shape and stops hurting people in the ring, him vs. Lesnar might be okay....
By the way, Storm's gimmick includes 1.) telling the audience to shut up, and 2.) occasionally making everyone stand for the Canadian national anthem. You know they don't know what to do with a wrestler when he's making fans stand for a national anthem. It's like waving a white flag and saying, "This guy has no personality -- we give up."
Actually, Ahmed is currently working in a nice little Dallas Fort Worth indy named Profesional Championship Wrestling. He and Sabu are theeir only big stars. Luckily, they haven't let him on the mic too much.

Scott Hudson: What an amazing night this has been for World Championship Wrestling! Good Night! Mark Madden: See you Thursday!
Holden: So what do you want to do tonight Banky: Order pizza, watch Degrassi Jr. High Holden: Wow, you have a thing for Canadian Melodrama Banky: No, I have a thing for little girls who say aboot ~Chasing Amy
Smackdown really needs another face now that Kurt Angle has turned. Booker T would be the best fit, IMO. Booker/Angle and Booker/Lesnar are completely fresh. Booker and Big Show even had some good matches a couple years ago.
