He's due back any day now (according to JR). So where does he go and what do you do with him?

I can wait for him to "keep it real with the 'kwethtion.'"

I miss Kanyon and his speech impediment.

Bring him back on Smackdown where he would fit in better (though he is great and would actually fit in anywhere, Smackdown needs him more). Give him a title. Any title. IC, Euro, tag team, whatever. His greatness should be recognized. Have him be a heel, where his arrogance and ignorance can shine.

I can't wait for him to return, as the only wrestler I enjoy more than Kanyon is Kurt Angle. I just hope he isn't lost in the shuffle or ignored.

Smackdown needs him more? What!? What would he do on Smackdown? There's nothing for him to win, unless he teams up with someone, and that's a waste of his talents. Raw needs more faces than heels, but Kanyon has a better chance to break out on that show. It's where the singles titles are, they have 9 (8 if you choose to count Bossman for Raw, but dude doesn't seem to exist anymore, which is a good thing) less male singles wrestlers (I checked) than Smackdown does. There's just more of an opportunity for him there. And I think Kanyon could get over as a face, he's got that likability factor to him.

The moveset is there, Kanyon is well known for his innovative moves and work in the ring. The finisher is there, a believable tech that the crowd likes even if he's a heel. The music is there, he had one of the best entrances out there before he was injured. The catch phrase is there, cause even as a heel the crowd can get into it.

I don't care where he goes (I tend catch RAW mostly nowadays, so that'd be nice) as long as he's pushed to the moon.



WHO BETTAH THAN KANYON?!



On June 27th, 2002, the Montreal Expos (number one on the MLB contraction list) added MONEY to their payroll, aquiring Bartolo Colon. In a time like this, there's two quotes that come to the forefront;

Um, color me ignorant, but what is so good about Kanyon? I've never seen him before in any capacity, and I've noticed that he's a favorite of many on this board. Could someone clue me in?

Put him on Raw as a heel in the mix for the IC Title. I think he's much more suited to being a heel, or at least that's the way he's always been booked. If the fans start cheering him, then you can turn him face.

I think Kanyon needs a tag-team partner, maybe Mike Sanders then they could get the tag titles,maybe off of Edge and Hogan.

I actually liked Kanyon's Postively Page gimmick, espeically him giving the diamond-cutter to random people.

Smackdown doesn't have many uppermidcard heels to speak of right now. That is why I say the show needs Kanyon more. RAW has Regal, Lesnar, NWO, Ediie and Benoit. Smackdown has Team Canada, Jericho and D-Von Dudley if you're feeling generous and even count him.

The reason I like Kanyon and I think others on the board like him is this. He's good at getting the crowd involved in his promos and is a very funny guy. In the ring he is the innovator of offense. The guy puts out a new move almost weekly. What is there not to like?

I know it's the truth and the truth hurts..you're right, Chris Jericho is now nothing more than a midcard heel. Sob, sob.

I'd bring back Mortis. That was one of WCW's few really cool "cartoon/superhero" type gimmicks. He could have been much bigger than he was, had they not had him destroy Glacier and move up the ranks. He also had James Vandenberg, who was probably the last great manager ever in terms of talent.

Yeah, yeah, Kanyon really came into his own as himself, but he lacked the cool costume. Hey, if Rey can come back with the mask, this isn't too much to ask :)

We'll never see Mortis again, thank God. I like Kanyon for Kanyon, not some crappy skull mask and shoulderpads with spikes on them.

"Um, color me ignorant, but what is so good about Kanyon? I've never seen him before in any capacity, and I've noticed that he's a favorite of many on this board. Could someone clue me in?"

Well, in my opinion, I would say Kanyon has that dorky, yet oh-so funny look and charisma and attitude about him, he's just tough not to like and laugh at (for examples of this, watch the Stone Cold promo where he comes into the ring with the Alliance pre-milking and offers Stone Cold an Alliance MVP shirt). Also, during his WCW run he was doing new moves on a weekly basis that later became finishers for some midcard stars of today (I haven't reviewed my best of Kanyon series for awhile, so the only one I can currently name he created for now if the moss covered, three handled family gradunzo).

Now, I see him fitting better on RAW, there's just a better variety of movesets and guys for him to face, I actually wouldn't miond seeing Regal/Kanyon (and I'm not a Regal fan), RVD/Kanyon or even Booker/Kanyon. I see Kanyon as a Euro guy, no way they bring him in any higher than that.

They can bring him in @ the Euro level, but I can very easily see him holding the IC Belt at some point.

Give Kanyon the Euro belt then have him be a huge mark for his own belt. That shouldn't be too hard since Kanyon was always a huge Kanyon mark. Who better than Kanyon?

I loved when Kanyon used to go around to Alliance guys who had a good moment and would say, "You finally answered the question 'Who better than Kanyon?'." He's a lot like Angle in that he's funny, but he's oblivious as to why people are laughing at him.

Actually Kanyon's got a new shirt that he's been wearing to WWE World appearances. It just says "Who Betta Than Kanyon" on the front and "Nobody" on the back.

After seeing Benoit, Eddie and Bubba Ray wrestle twice tonight, Nash get hurt, and way too much "llet's take you back to..." segments, I change my mind and say RAW needs Kanyon.

Who thinks this is actually gonna happen? I sure as hell don't. The crowd don't care a lick about the guy, and if they have him dump Paul, give Angle the title and try to play him as a babyface off Kurt, he's gonna get exposed.
