    How bad it it? Is it a retiring injury, or something he can heal in about six months? I know he has recurring shoulder problems, but I thought he was out for this stretch because the WWF was in their "no more than ONE non-North American on tv at a time" moods.

He's had to go back to Japan for surgeries, and I think he opened a dojo last time he was there- not really a sign he has interest in jobbing to Crash Holly on Jakked again anytime soon. Unfortunately all the stuff that made him great when he was working for Sasuke also took a toll on his tiny, tiny body.
Kaz Hayashi split to go work for Makoto, I don't see why TAKA would bother renewing *his* contract when it comes up. He usually winds up in Puerto Rico any way (jobbing to TNT...bleh).

    Until they pull their heads out of their asses and actually bring up guys like Jamie Knoble, we'll be treated to * specials like the Kidman/Taijiri borefest from Smackdown.

I think it's a combination of that and the reluctance to let them work a WCW Cruiserweight style. They force them to work a more WWF-style (more grounded, increased punches, slower pace) than letting them go out & wow the crowd. I'd love to see them have a match where they tell the guys "Go out & don't hold back" just to see what the crowd reaction would be.

Re: Kidman and his brittleness...

I'd been under the impression that his latest injury was a knee injury. As far as I recall, I think he's had that bad knee for a while, and this was just a situation where he re-injured it. I could be wrong though, my memories of WCW are clouded by a haze of early senility. Either that or I took an errant kick from Goldberg.

If that's the case... I think that'd be a more reasonable explanation for his general slowing down of late, and for his generally beefed-up upper body. If I had a chronic knee problem (and I do, heh) I wouldn't be running around as fast as I used to. And if you're not as fast as you once were, you may as well put on some muscle to make up for it, no?

I could be wrong about this, but wasn't the fact that Dynamite Kid ended up in a wheelchair partialy blamed on the fact that, to paraphrase Mick Foley, he had 240 pounds built on a 195 pound frame?

Cruisers won't be seriously pushed until Vince dies or retires. The big man mentality is too deeply entrenched in his mind.

I can sum up my thoughts on Crusiers with this:
I wish they were all a healthy Ultimo Dragon.

Insert clever comment.
