So I was watching a bit of Smackdown the other night with a friend of mine who hadn't watched wrestling in a couple of years. We see Kurt Angle come out.

Friend: What are they chanting?
Me: "You suck."
Friend: Ha ha, that's awesome! Angle is such a good bad guy.
Me: Actually, he's the #1 good guy in the company right now.
Friend: He is?
Me: Yeah
Friend: So why does everyone think he sucks?

Good question. And as much as it pains me to say it, WWE should've changed Angle's music if he was going to turn face. It just makes no sense to have 'You Suck' as a term of endearment.

Ideally, the 'you suck' music should've been passed onto the World's Greatest Tag Team, and Angle could've been given something similarly faux-Olympic sounding and heroic. Maybe even Coldplay's "Clocks," though I'd imagine the rights would be nigh impossible to get. Failing that, WWE should set on re-educating the fans to chant along 'Ang-GULL' to the music in the manner of that old Edge & Christian kazoo chant.

"When this bogus term alternative rock was being thrown at every '70s retro rehash folk group, we were challenging people to new sonic ideas. If some little snotty anarchist with an Apple Mac and an attitude thinks he invented dance music and the big rock group is coming into his territory, [that's] ridiculous." - Bono, 1997

Well, the World's Greatest Tag Theme does have a repetitive two note riff that I was expecting to cause some "You Suck" chants, I guess it just wasn't the same for most fans.

Any regular attendee of live events will tell just can't help it. Chanting "You Suck" during his entrance is just too much fun.

It's infectious.

Plus, Angle yelled at TWGTT when he came back, saying that he earned those "You Suck"s. They're like that "You Fucked Up!" guy in ECW.

Sometimes I ask myself why I watch WWE after all the crap it's given me. HLA, necro, HHH, and so on. And then it hits me. That one simple phrase that can be modified and used for anything that gets you down, yet makes you keep coming back.

Every episode has the potential to be the best one ever, and I'll be damned if I'm going to miss it after sitting through this shit.

Yeah, and when he came back, he said to the crowd that he was happy to hear the 'you suck' chants

Don't you think that it creates a perception problem, though? Whether "respectful" or not, the general impression it gives is that Angle's a loser that isn't liked. I don't get the "fun" of it, personally. When I find someone entertaining, the last thing I want to do at the arena is scream that they "suck". I usually cheer for them loudly. Where are we going as a society when we have to scream sarcastically at people we like?

It's just like the "What?" thing with Austin, or shouting "two!" on near-falls. It's just become second-nature for some people.

I agree, although it seemed he was happy with the chants I don't know if he realised they were going to go on for this long, he probably thought that the fans would stop chanting it if he was a face.I guess it stuck though.

Could be spun now that the "You Suck" is for Angle's Opponents now that he is a face?

At least it's not a problem here in Pittsburgh - he's always gotten the "AN-GLE!" chant during his entrance here.

What about during his initial heel run, when taking it outside vs. The Rock, he got on the house mic and called out the Steeltown crowd:

Angle: "What's wrong with you people? Why are you booing me? I was born here! I grew up here! I'm from here!"

Rock: "The Rock says...IT DOESN'T MATTER WHERE YOU'RE FROM!" (ass kicking resumes)

Star wipe, and...we're out.

If there's one unique thing I love about Kurt Angle, it's that the "You Suck" chants have become kind of an inside joke for both Kurt and the fans. The WWF couldn't have handled the situation any better than they did, because in my mind, changing Kurt's music (like changing Jericho's music) would be sacrilege.

If the WWF decided to use a Super Mario Brothers gimmick...

"Mah gawd, King! Garrison Cade just bounced a fireball toward Rene Dupree!"
"And look, Mark Jindrak just jumped on top of Conway's head! I think he's out cold, JR!"
"What're they up to now..where did that huge pipe come from?!"
"They're going down in the pipe! They're..they're gone!"
--Mike Sweetser

"Oh my god, JR. Cade just shrunk after he was hit by that chair!"
"Here comes RVD, King. What's that he has in that bag?"
"Are those Mushrooms, JR?"
"Cade's eating the Mushrooms. BAH GAWD, KING! Cade just grew twice his size!"

Angle likes it, he encourages it. Actually if you look at the Summerslam 2003 DVD, he is actually leading the "You Suck" chants after the match. So why should we have a problem with it? It is good heat, gets the crowd going, what is the problem?

Well, if his line about "and Mr. Rogers doesn't count because he's dead" won't draw heel heat in Pittsburgh, then I'm not sure anything will.

I was surprised that there wasn't any heel remarks about the Steelers, Pirates or Mario Lemeiux last night. It seems like there is always some Pittsburgh sports bashing by Lawler or at least one of the wrestlers when there is a televised WWE event here in Pittsburgh.

Then I realized that it was probably because Angle wasn't there on the RAW roster to give out a few anti-Pittsburgh remarks to his fellow wrestlers that he knew would surely generate alot of heat.

The place looks ridiculously huge. Like, 80,000+ huge. Stream was flawless here in the UK, in full HD which is better than how I'll be watching the actual show. Looked like around 50,000 watched on YouTube. Enjoy, everyone!
