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?
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.)
Originally posted by HokienauticDo 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.
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."
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?
