Playing Man: Lance Storm Playing Lake: The WWE and the fans who care about it Playing Rock that Sinks Man: Justin Credible
See where I'm going here? Come on guys, really? The Impact Players, 95% of the fanbase probably doesn't know who they are. I do and I STILL don't want to see Credible ruining Lance Storm on a weekly basis.
As for Dawn Marie, she's there for looks, which sucks for me, cause I think she's hideous.
And Billy and Chuck are right up there with the Midnight Express, Steiners, and British Bulldogs? The Impact Players do sort of suck. They aren't great but they are a well a team. Not 2 lower midcarders thrown together. My point originally wasn't to reform the Impact Players but to first give some logical (in a wrestling way) to Dawn Marie being in the WWE. Second to try to give the Euro title some point. Right now it is completely pointless. Shit Regal doesn't even remember he is the champ. I thought a smartass champ dodging a stodgy challenger could possibly bring meaning. Diamond is after all doing Dawn so that makes sense for her to manage him. I personally like heel stables and think that a manager with only 1 wrestler is really stupid and Dawn was the Impact Players manager in ECW that makes sense too. If there was a real tag team division the Impact Players wouldn't really be that bad if they were one of 6 or 7 teams. I am not advocating giving them the belt though it's not like the tag team title is so respectable anymore.
I just have 13 words for you. How much wood would a woodchuch chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
Originally posted by spf2119You know, I'd actually rather see the musketeer in WWE than Simon Diamond. I'd also rather see the Rocketeer from the bad Disney movie. Or pretty much anyone other than Simon Diamond. I mourn the passing of ECW as much as anyone, but sometimes they did just put out guys who weren't fun to watch...Simon was one of them. Just let him fade into obscurity.
Sure, Simon Diamond sucked as a wrestler, but damn did his theme music rock. "Simon Says" by Drain STH is just a kickass tune. I would *pay* to have Simon in WWE just so I could hear that song on RAW.
Justin Credible holds the distinction of being the only clique member who is never acknowledged as a member of the clique, being as it would be embarrassing to the rest of them to admit association with someone who looks like the nerds Urkel used to hang out with on ‘Family Matters’. It’s likely they don’t acknowledge him because he’s the ugliest member of the group, which is awful for him, because when you’re uglier than X-Pac you’re damned, damned ugly. I’m very sorry to say it, or maybe I’m not, but swearing and pointing at your crotch and hitting people more talented than you with stuff does not make you a good worker, or over, or anything in between. That goes for Credible and Pac. Storm deserves better. Personally, I think he should stay a single, but if they really need him to do tags, let him tag with a newly heel Valbowski. I mean, let’s face it, Val doesn’t even have a gimmick right now. He’s got the old music and part of the old name, but he can’t do the lines or the vignettes that got the old character over…To me that’s a recipe for scrapping the old name. How about having Lance Storm come out to rip on him during a match, about how a Canadian wrestler should be ashamed of the career Val has had, and then have Val beat down Storm. The next week, have Val come on down when Storm is laying it into some poor babyface and beating on him, and instead of making the save, Val joins Storm in the beating (on a major face, by the way), then cuts a well-worked heel promo saying he’s not Val Venis, or Valbowski, or any of that crap. His name is Sean Morley, and he’s not afraid to admit it anymore. He’ll say how he doesn’t know why he let the ‘front office’ work him into being ashamed of what he is, especially when what he is, is better than 90% of the people in this business ‘not to mention all of you gun-toting white-trash, unionizing Americans!’ He can underscore that Canadian thing, and boom, we have a tag-team who dominate until the WWE develops a new face team…(and I do mean new).
"The greatest trick the devil ever played was convincing the world he didn't exist. And the greatest trick Hulk Hogan ever played was convincing the world workrate didn't exist."
I've always liked seeing Dawn with Storm. They seem to mix really well and have some chemistry together. She's the yin to Storm's yang. She's the Barney to Storms Fred. They play off each other so well.
What I would have liked to see is not the anti-amercian group but more of Lance Storm conspiracy victim , He's bitchin all the time and asking Canadian heels or faces about it how he's getting screwed because of his nationality and they might agree just to humor him and then roll their eyes at the whacked out Storm. Then he gets a real sympothizer Dawn Marie who really is the only one that believes him. She says "As a paralegal, I know when people are getting shafted and you sir are being treated unfair" Storm looks at her with puppydog eyes "You believe me" "I sure do!". And starts there partnership.
As for Simon Diamond, his matches were never really stood out, he was okay. I thought his promos were pretty funny "Simon has a problem" and how could you forget his bodyguard Dick Hertz.
I don't get it, everyone loves rats, but they don't want to drink the rats milk?
According to Meltzer, Keiji Mutoh has given his notice to New Japan and will be jumping ship to All Japan. Not as big as a revelation as it would have been once, but to me it's still noteworthy. Of course, Mutoh is the Triple Crown (and Double Tag)...
