At the risk of turning the board into People Magazine, I think Goldberg's new tights last night call for a fashion discussion.
It's obvious that WWE is thinking there are too many guys wearing all black: HHH, Goldberg, and Booker T are 3 biggies who've had some odd fashion choices of late when we all know they'd look better just wearing black.
Although Goldberg's tights last night were actually pretty cool, they came across as awfully fashion conscious for a guy who's supposed to be a badass. Assuming WWE is right to try to get some guys away from all black, but wrong in changing Goldberg's fashion, here are my suggestions for some of the big names who have recently worn all black:
Goldberg: Keep him in the black. He's getting a massive push, might as well save the best look for him.
HHH: The hot pink and purple work well as long as he's a heel and as long as he's with Flair. More pastels and flashiness as long as he's in this character.
Booker T: The white tights look like underwear. Put him in red and yellow to match his fiery opening. Those colors worked really well for someone else, who happens not to be wearing them right now.
Rock: Keep the black, heel/face, here/gone whatever. Too much brand image to protect.
Brock Lesnar: Also should remain in all black for the same reasons as Goldberg.
Big Show: Boring as hell anyway -- why not try to freshen him up with some color or throw some pants on him so we don't have to look at his butt. It's not like pants would slow him down or anything. It might be funny too if pulling up his pants every few moves became part of his gimmick.
Chief Morley: Looks like he might be headed for a character shift. The white/black they're trying on Goldberg would work better with this guy.
Undertaker: Put him in a white wife-beater. It would totally work.
Kevin Nash / Shawn Michaels : These two both need to be dressing in acid washed denim or some other over-the-top eighties look to go with their hair.
Albert: Whole new wardrobe concept needed here. I'm thinking a ratty white T shirt, camo pants and army boots, in a homeless freak by the methodone clinic look.

Sleeping, at the time of this post.
If Booker would wear red undies, then the his hot crotch would have to be yellow/orange (as opposed to the red it is with his white and black undies), and the flamin' "BookerT" could be black with more yellow/orange flames.
I like Big Show's two-strap singlet. It's way better than when he wore black undies a few years ago. The one-strap singlet seems to be more of an Andre the Giant statement, but the two-strap, I think, looks better on him.
As to HHH, I think the red and black iron-cross undies are fine, but the purple just doesn't go with the big gold belt.
Overall: We need more gimmicks so that the outfits get more creative. I mean, Repo Man wore tires, for cryin' out loud! Too many guys are getting by with trunks and undies, with the only difference being color and, maybe, their name being written on the clothes.

You're right; Benoit is too small to get over "like Goldberg did," but he does have the look to get over in the same fashion. If Benoit came out and dominated guys with power moves, defeating them in three minutes, we'd never buy that.
