...with the Brown?

This comes as a surprise to me since I thought he had a cushy backstage agent role with TNA.

Is "Superstar contract" being used here to signify something other than actually wrestling for WWE? Like, is D'Lo just going to get residuals for WWE making action figures of him for their "Legends" series, or something like that?

Up to now "superstar" has usually meant "wrestler". I doubt they'd bother announcing it unless he was returning to the ring.

It'd be a shame if people didn't recognise him.

Wasn't there some WWE concern about not having enough African American wrestlers? Though...I liked D'Lo, but I don't expect he'd be pushed more than an Elijah Burke (who doesn't seem to be on TV much as it is.)

I just hope this means the return of the classic "Who sucks now?" "YOU DO!" exchange between D'Lo and the crowd.

Do I remember correctly that he kind of faded away in WWE after the Droz incident -- that it was more a case of him not being able to put that behind him mentally/emotionally than anything else?

That's what I read.

This news legitimately excites me. He had some awful AWFUL outings in TNA a few years back, but he's been decent in Japan. I've always been a big mark for D-Lo and his theme song.

And the walk. Let us not forget the walk.

I thought his TNA work was fine, and he was over. He had the misfortune of working around Jarrett.

He was a great worker, and I hope he gets to do more than put over Kennedy and Khali.

D'Lo was laways one of my favorites mid card talents who could occassionally be put int he ring with the main eventers and have a real good match. I hope they keep him exactly the same - the walk, the theme song and the chest protector.

My only fear is that they put him on ECW and we have the eventual Kofi/D'Lo vs. Elijah/Benjamin year long feuds. As much as I like them all as workers (to varying degrees), somethign would not seem right about that.

All the problems are the same, but you know instead of all the funny, pithy dialogue, everybody is really pissed off and tense. Marriage is like a tense, unfunny version of 'Everybody Loves Raymond', only it doesn't last 22 minutes. It lasts forever."

I always got dizzy watching his head swivel. Ouch.

If he brings back the chest guard, I'll be happy.

Exactly! Especially if WWE is able to dig out some footage of him originally injuring it.

I'd be fine if he and Mark Henry were to tag up again.

This can only mean the return of the European title.

Really - they couldn't find a picture of the guy.

And he'd better have the same theme song or there will be problems.

What do you bet he only ever wrestles on house shows, gets wished well in his future endeavors six months from now, and everybody says, "D'Lo Brown? I didn't know he was even with the company!" a la Scorpio from a year or two back?

So sayeth the Observer: Thank God! What a dreadful storyline this was. Maybe now the World Tag Team Champions of the World can move on to better things.
