OK, in just a few weeks Bull Buchanan and D'Lo Brown have both been released after having been replaced in current storylines by the same guy (Red Dog/Rodney Mack). I have a wild theory that it's all a work.

Supporting points:

1 -- Bull and D'Lo were in a tag team a few years ago with a smarky "We don't get the respect from management we deserve" theme.

2 -- Don't wrestlers usually just disappear when they are released? In both of these cases Bull and D'Lo had confrontations with the guy that replaced them, instead of John Cena/Theodore Long just showing up one day and saying that Bull/D'Lo didn't live up to his expectations, and here's his replacement.

3 -- One more time for emphasis: Cena and Long each brought in the same guy as the replacement!

Contradiciting points:

1 -- Why would they go to this much trouble to put together a worked shoot angle for Bull and D'Lo of all people?

On the other hand, if I'm wrong that's one hell of a coincidence. And I still don't understand why they went to so much trouble to build up a storyline for Torrie and Dawn Marie....

On yet another hand, this is coming from a guy who kept expecting Nash to come back with a parody of HHH's "Beautiful Day" rehab video....

I would like to see Nash return to a parody of HHH's U2 video. Hell, even an exact copy, showing Nash busting his ass through rehab, would have a certain smark-ish humour to it.

I doubt it is a swerve. I was thinking this morning, though, that D-Lo could show up in TNA at some point and work with Ron Killings as a team. That would sort of continue the "Down with the Brown" angle and the racism stuff Killings was talking up a few months ago.

Your contradictory point pretty much sums up why its not a work.

If they turned round in a couple of weeks and had D'lo and Bull run in Big Red Rodney MackDog match who the hell would care? In D'lo's matches recently he's been getting zero heat from the crowd and Bull was the proverbial chocolate fireguard with John Cena.

Don't get me wrong, I liked D'lo back in the day but I just don't see any way that the minimal pay off they would get from this would be worth the hassle.

First, if it was a work, then why would Bull Buchanan be showing up backstage at NWA-TNA PPVs?
Second, getting beat down and run out of town is actually worse than just disappearing. The beatdown is usually a way of humiliating the wrestler on his way out, thus in Vince's mind making him inferior to the WWF/E product, and thus by extension the product signing said inferior wrestler would be deemed inferior.



The only military skill provided by the French is demonstrating the methods of surrendering.

The only "We don't get respect team" i remember D-Lo being in was with Chaz, formally of the Headbangers, not Bull Buchannon.

Damn, your right, that was Chaz not Bull. OK, nevermind....

I thought, "Oh great, another stupid infomercial". Then DiBiase whales on Sting with the chair and puts the boots to him - classic. Much better than the "alternate version", which doesn't have the beatdown. Steph
