WWE

This robs everyone of being able to use Chris Masters as an all purpose example. Who steps up and becomes the go to muscle head?

If this was a third strike, I'd think WWE would mention it (and it'd be rough to get the third strike while serving the second.) They were out of any ideas for him and he wasn't getting any better, so perhaps this was more a general purpose release.

I thought he improved a great deal in a short amount of time. He could sell, and he learned how to target a body part to set up his finisher. Compare him to Snitsky, who still lumbers around like he was just hired.

His initial push was too much too fast, and then he was mired in weak feuds (Santino, Palumbo). Also, he never developed on the mic.

I will miss his "map of the ovaries" shorts and his uncanny resemblance to my brother-in-law.

Goddamnit. Well, he'd been living on borrowed time for a couple years now, but damn it I loved this guy. The Masterlock was probably my favorite finish for a good stretch of time, if only because the booking of it was so well protected. Give me a submission finisher that means game over any day over one that is either a) 30 rope breaks before a sudden tapout), or b) never gets the win, but always makes the opponent tap out during a post-match beatdown.

I am especially disappointed I don't get to see one last Masters/Kane match, as they worked together much better than ever would have been expected.

Since they failed to book anybody else breaking the Master Lock ahead of this release, I have to think this wasn't planned, at least on the corporate side. Maybe CM shrunk (OMG Justin did you see what I just typed) again as part of getting off the stuff and as a result he saw the writing on the wall and/or decided that he was enduring entirely too much bullshit based on his size or lack thereof, or maybe it was just that somebody noticed that his suspension period ended up dovetailing nicely with a 90-day rollover and it wouldn't be worth bothering to keep him around.

Also, WHY IS RANDY ORTON STILL BREATHING GOD DAMN IT - oh, wait, we're not outraged about that anymore, are we. GOD DAMN TRIPLE H BOOKING

Apparently Carlito wants out of the WWE as well.

Well, gee, I can't imagine why. But does putting over DH Peligro Smith count as his jobbing boot to the ass?

Maybe getting beaten up by Snitsky for no real reason will be his boot to the head.

That reminds me, was that supposed to be a face turn for Snitsky? That whole segment seemed awkward.

Chris Masters, we hardly knew yee. Hit the Indies, and improve your craft and decision making skills.

I think it was probably more of a Bad News Brown deal, you know? Like, "I don't have no friends, and I don't want them."

About Chris Masters getting shitcanned? Bummer...

jackpot. CM Flunk three drug tests. I also liked "Masterlock let go of, Masterlock released, Masterlock broke."

I feel bad for the guy and the mixed messages but they had given up on him long ago. I bet he's eventually one of those "go on the indies, get huge again, catch our eye with that hugeness, then come back to our company and get drug-tested" re-signings.

I just figured it was similar to 'Office Space' and Masterdouche was actually cut loose a long time ago and no one bothered to tell him. He hung around the back, got used for last-minute segments, collected a paycheck, etc. Then double-double E 'fixed the glitch' ... so to speak.

I didn't mind him so much when he was a Vince go-to-guy/flunkie or just tagging.

TNA already has a Matt Morgan.

Too bad there was never any real payoff to the Masterlock Challenge. (Was there? I don't watch anymore. Only follow through the boards)

If a guy gets fired because of drug tests or leaves with a few strike on him, does he get a fresh set of strikes if he is rehired by the company or do the strikes carry over? More of a Booker related query than Masters.

They did that for an easy pop with the troops, and then the following week claimed that it didn't count due to the interference of JBL dressed as Santa Claus. (The announcers made it out like nobody but Masters and maybe some other heels held that opinion, but it was Masters's challenge and Masters's rules.) It looks like Lashley is the only "undisputed" winner of the challenge, on the 3/19 Raw.
