Who the hell was that on Velocity that beat Funaki? Sign him now! Was it American Dragon under a different name? Whoever it was, color me impressed. Sure, there was lots of flippy floppy stuff, but the match was super crisp.

That was Spanky, from what I understand - and I believe he already is signed. He's been doing house shows for a few weeks.

I *LOVED* that match - lots of fun, super crisp execution. That enzuigiri and sidekick was CHOICE.

Gotta catch up on the spoiler threads, Dude!! See Spanky's Gimmick & Smackdown taping report for additional discussion.

Actually, the match looked tighter on TV than it did from row 2 (just saying ...) -- I'm more convinced from this camera angle that it is indeed Spanky.

Considering when I saw him at the Hamilton houseshow he was wearing hideous pink velvet trunks with flowers on them, this new look is definitely an aesthetic improvement. At least he won't get Lenny & Lodi level heat, which was all he got at that hosue show.

And that was easily one of the best matches on Velocity in ages, probably dating back to the Kidman/Tajiri one from the first show.

The Diamondback vs. Funaki match was good but I enjoyed the Crash vs. Nunzio match much more. Old fashioned Minnesota Wrecking crew psychology rules. If the Crash Vs. Nunzio match and the Tajiri vs. Noble match from Smackdown are a sign of things to come in the WWE Cruiserweight Division then things will become very interesting.

And where was Josh this week? He was at the taping and I was getting used to someone actually calling the match.

Michael Cole did, along with The Cat. During the opening Bill DeMott squash, he said he was sitting in for Josh this week.

Maybe Josh ended up in a coma from the exciting Torrie Wilson interview from SD, much like many others who had to listen to it. Either that, or just being near Torrie killed his career, as it has done for others.

Let me tell you this about Diamondback. Sure he was real good in that match, and sure he picked up the pinfall against Funaki, but I'm still sure that Funaki can announce circels around him, because he is Funaki....Smackdown......Number 1 Announcer!!!!!!

I mean, how's he supposed to announce anything with that mask on (kudos to whoever came up with that mask, by the way. It totally rocks)!

WARNING: VELOCITY SPOILER AHEAD!!

It looks like we haven't seen the last of Spanky. This week, he'll be wrestling on Velocity again. But WWE's passing through Jersey, so Spanky is wrestling as The Jet!

Is anybody else getting bad vibes from this gimmick? How long can this go on before it gets old?

It's pure Wrestlecrap. Spanky's getting his "embarassment phase" early because he's going somewhere, mark my words.

This could actually be fun. Predict what team name he'll adopt.

The next one is Albany.

River Rat? (minor hockey)
Attack? (Lacrosse)
Great Dane? (University)

It can also backfire..
'there is this guy with all the damn cheap heat efforts'

OR make a great heel..
'I was gonna adopt the name of a local team but well..they all SUCK!'

Take this to a further extreme and you've got money! How about instead of having Spanky wrestle as The Jet last night, you have him wrestle as THE RAIDER? Instant heel heat, baby! Have him wrestle in Cleveland as The Yankee, Sacramento as The Laker, and Los Angeles as The Giant (not Paul Wight) and you've created an instant monster heel!

But this sort of gimmick is something I'd expect to see out of a Stevie Richards or a Blue Meanie and not someone with the talents of Spanky.

I don't think this type of gimmick translates well for TV. Sure he might get some cheap heat in the arena but why should everyone in the rest of the country give a crap?

Hopefully it's just something to get him out there before they figure out what to do with him.

Damn. I was hoping Spanky was going for a ninja gimmick. Especially with his finisher named as such.

Hmm, for a split-second I thought that might have actually been Josh under the mask wrestling as Diamondback (since it was never fully explained WHY he wasn't announcing during the show) ...

    I've always kinda dug Rikishi in the past. I thought his mini-thing with Angle when he came back was going to go somewhere, but what WTF13 says is true: he's just another with nothing to do.
