Am I the only one who was impressed by Chief Morley on Raw? Sure, he was wrestling Spike Dudley, so it's not hard to look good, but he looked awesome. He seems to be in the best shape of his life, bulked up but not to the point of damaging his flexiblity, and he looked great in the ring.

He has decent mic skills and good physical skills and he's certainly paid his dues. Give him a good storyline and I could see them making him into a believable world champion later this year. The storyline is already set up, he's Bischoff's right hand man and will be guaranteed to have some type of feud with Austin because of that alone. I don't think there's much of a chance of Austin not becoming champion sometime in the next 6 months and Morley certainly has the necessary abilities to put on a good feud with Austin.

With all the talk of who can move up to feel the heel void with Rock leaving and now Angle out, I'm surprised Morley hasn't been mentioned once. Does anyone else agree or am I just still jazzed by finally seeing the slingshot suplex back in use?

I always thought Morley had what it took to be big in this business. Good worker, good look, great charisma. They need to dump the Chief Morley gimmick, though. I think the guy has just been hampered by bad gimmicks, and it's kept him in mid-card purgatory. No matter how entertaining I thought the Val Venis character was (and I did think he did a good job with the gimmick), there was no way he was gonna' get a World Title with it. Chief Morley isn't much better. But the guy is very talented

Maybe it's due to the roles he has been given, but he just has never really connected with the fans. He's always seemed to be quite talented in the ring, but even in that respect he's never really been given much of a chance to shine.

Maybe he just needs a good gimmick. I don't think the Chief of staff one is gonna be it. Commissioner type roles are midcard fodder (i.e. Regal, Foley and Michaels don't count because they did not wrestle as such, it was after their in ring careers were over) and seen as such by the fans.

I just don't see it happening any time soon.

I've always liked Morley as a worker but I think he's been too damaged by the whole Val Venis debacle to ever really be taken seriously.

They jobbed him to Jerry Lawler. Sure, the Dudleys interfered, but he still laid down for Lawler. That's not a good sign, IMO.

I'd settle for him feuding with anyone in the midcard like Van Dam? He's got to be built up quite a bit before Austin would feud with him or it'd be a believable feud.

I think Morley is a pretty polished worker, too, and I was impressed with his squash match against Spike on Monday. He won't go anywhere with the "Chief" Morley gimmick. Just call him Sean Morley and let him wrestle.

If you go back and look at D'Lo v. Val Venis at Summerslam 1998, you will see how good of a worker Chief Morley is. He carried D'Lo to one hell of a match that lasted about 15-20 mins. It was the curtain jerker of the PPV. In that match you also see D'Lo do something very scary. He actually was going for his running powerbomb and slipped and dropped Val like he did Droz. I think that might have been Val's best match.

Always been a fan or Morely, but he suffers from the same syndrome as Dustin Runnals, they are known for their gimmicks as opposed for their actual talent. Ive considerd him a above average worker who's more than competent on the mic.

He has a long way to go to shake off his Val Venis stigma to establish himself in the midcard before we can even talk about World Title credentials.

I's guessing he'll be booked as Bischoff's lackey, taking his beatings.

I totally agree with you. I think that match was great, and really showed how much WWF missed the boat with these two.

I don't really like how you said that Morely "carried D'Lo" though, as D'Lo Brown is another tremendous worker. And another one that WWF totally missed out on.

Wasn't cash the main beef Lesnar had with WWE's underwhelming offer? Brock signed a million dollar downside, lived like a king (who travels a lot and fights on planes) and he's just going to go to TNA and make two grand a week?
