WCW used to have a quaint little booking tactic that infuriated just about everyone who saw it. It was a very simple process: put two or more wrestlers out there who were capable of having a decent match, let them start their match, then have someone else (generally a big stiff) run out, destroy everyone and cut a promo that had nothing to do with the match.

It was an nWo trademark. It was a Sid trademark. Scott Steiner carried its flag proudly. And every time it happened, it ticked me off.

Last night, Venis and Hennig started a match that contained (gasp!) a bit of mat wrestling. It had some potential, both from the "this is something different" perspective and from the "I haven't seen these guys in ages, let's see what they've still got" perspective. I didn't expect a twenty-minute four-star classic; I didn't expect the crowd to really give a rat's ass about it. But I was enjoying it, brief as it was.

Then Austin ran out (complete with entrance music mid-match) and squashed both guys so that he could yell WHAT WHAT WHAT WHAT WHAT WHAT WHAT LOOK AT MY WATCH WHAT WHAT WATCH WHAT WHAT for a while and sing the Beverly Hillbillies theme song.

Would it have killed them to give the OhGodHe'sBACKFather a little less pointless mic time, give these two an extra two minutes to finish the match and THEN have Austin come out and smear both guys and cut his promo?

Austin != Sid; Austin's forgotten more moves than Sid ever knew. It's not the end of the world. It's just not a good precedent to set, that's all...

As in the Val thread, I think Val comes back on Smackdown and gets in Austins face...

To me it is the start of a feud, and one I want to see...

ROTFLMAO!

I don't know if you realize it or not, but you've just summed up EVERY Austin promo from the past two months or so.

Remember that episode of the Simpsons where Bart becomes the "I Didn't Do It" boy? And everybody thinks him saying "I Didn't Do It" is like the FUNNIEST thing they've ever heard and that's ALL they want to hear him say until it becomes tired and cliche? And then, of course, one day he goes out there and says "I Didn't Do It" only to be met with silence because everybody is tired of it?

How long before that happens to Austin?


Austin = Sid



LMAO!

So does that make him "Psycho" Steve Austin? Or Stone Cold Steve Viscious? Or Stone Cold Steve Justice? At least we can understand what Austin's saying, right? If he brings a squeegee to the ring, it's all over.

Wait. There's our angle! He can interrupt the Hennig/Venis rematch on Smackdown when he tries to stab both of them with scissors because WHAT his WHAT WHAT watch WHAT WHAT WHAT WHAT told WHAT him to!

Look out, If Steve Anderson gets ahold of this, he'll start referring to Austin and the Master and Ruler of the Squirrels (honestly, I never got tired of that joke.) and then Dusty the Fat Bitter Cat will FLIP OUT.

In all honesty, I was sitting around at the end of Austin's promo [I was watching a recording, since I worked late last night] and I was like... you spent all that time to say WHAT? I mean... NOTHING. Rile up the fans all you want, but you can do it just as well in a wrestling match [recall the stomping and punching what's from RR...].

Wow, that belt looks like crap... I'll take it and carry it around for years and see if people can take it away from me... What? What was that? You mean even THIS belt doesn't matter! What? I'm insulted! Get away from me you... you... defiler!

That pissed me off too. But, the WWF has been known to do this. Here are a few moments in history that really irked me.

1)July 1998 A disgustly babyfaced HHH runs out and interupts a great Taka vs Venis match (Taka had betrayed Venis for screwing his sister, remember Yamaguchi's Kaientai? I use to laugh everytime I heard them say Yamaguchi, because here in Japan the Yamaguchi-gumi (group) is the biggest and oldest Mafia family. usually a person would change their name if its Yamaguchi out of fear, its akin to a Italian last name being Gotti. opps I'm getting off topic here) Uhmm anyway, HHH kills Venis heat by braining him and Taka with a chair, just so he can announce that at SummerSlam Rocky is going to be his beyatch.(Which also reminds me.....god I use to hate the face HHH)

2)June 1997 Doa and Lod2000 were having a pre-hardcore parking lot brawl, complete with a later clad screaming Sunny. And way off in the distance under the sunset a lone figured walked clad in a gray sweat suit. It was Undertaker, for the first time without dark lord attire, he walked all the way (it took him 5 minutes) down and beat every member of LOD2000 and DOA (except Sunny) down like it wasn't nothing. And this was when Doa was 4 members deep. He then walked all the way to the ring to tell us that Paul Bearer was lying about Kane being alive.
(That lying bastard, Undertaker. If only I knew then what I know now.) Yes I will always remember that day when DOA and LOD was ruined forever because of Sunny loud, yet soothing screams. (And that was when Daffney was still in High School)

3)All January 1998 long Who can forget Austin destruction of almost the then-small lockerroom before the Rumble. He started by breaking up a kick ass Rocky-Shamrock fight (their first) Stunners galore. Even then Rock sold it like a champ then.

4)August 1998 This is my favorite. After Summerslam Kane and Undertake offically kissed and made up. And was destroying everyone in their match because Vince said no one respected them (Hey I know I saw Taker with this gimmick before) Highlights include: the first and last Spiked Tombstone from the top rope on Mankind (who else?) A double chokeslam on a departing Vader and poor Val Venis had his match interupted and was launched head first out the ring by Kane. This was importanat because Val was wrestling D. Lo, who was saved by the Rock, who got beat the hell down and became face after losing to HHH the previous night.

The interupt match thing so I can speak my mind (I will never forgive Big Show for doing to the cruisers in WCW) Only works if it's believable. Most likely it makes the victims look like pussies. Especially if they dont at least try to get some payback on the next show.

I was praying for someone to interrupt that match last night. The crowd was as bored as I was with it and it only lasted two minutes. I was glad to see Val and Perfect get some mic time and insert themselves to bigger pushes with Steve. Because right now, Austin can get anyone over right now.
