    Mark Henry


10 year, $250k per, contract signed in 1996 before the Olympics and before he even started pro wrestling training(they thought he'd be an Olympic hero), they'd have to buy it out in order to fire him, so they figure use him instead of pay him to stay home.

Terri-Can't think of any, she's old and her body is just plain sick!

X-Pac-I've actually started to like Pac lately, there's something about a grown man willing to let himself be called a "ratty lookin' sucka'" all the while running in circles in the ring, and no selling others promos by sucking on a sucker that's just...Funny.

Mark Henry-Becasue Vince was dumb and signed this ass to a 7 year contract so he has to be on tv on some level (I forget how much he's rumored to make, but it's waaaay too much, I'm talking more than 70 percent of the roster).

Test-Man, how can you want Stephanie back and not like Test!? Sure, Stephanie looks good, but she doesn't have a big boot finisher. Also, I like Test, and I also liked his old "I run my fingers through my hair, because I'm a cocky bastard and I lok better than you" act. I STILL think Test shows potential in the ring and is lughtyears beyond where he was when he debuted. Plus, I liked his match with Brock.

I guess 2 out of 4 ain't bad. I guess everyone can't agree on everything. Plus, X-Pac's not in any main feuds beating people he shouldn't be (well, except Booker, but we all know he's winning in the end). So, I got no problem with him.

Terri- How old is she?

X-Pac- friends in high places

Mark Henry- that big contract. Foley explained some of it in his first book.

Test- ShaneoMac

I take back Test, He has had some decent matches, has a nice finisher, and I kinda liked his anti-America promo on Smackdown. The other three still have to go.

Try reconsidering on the 'Pacster too. He gets unreal heel heat, whether it be, "We hate you you are a dirty heel" or "Get off my TV/Out of my arena". That has to count for something. Personally, I find it admirable that he can get that much heat with not the absolute greatest heel heat drawing gimmick. (Remember, the nWo gets quite the load of cheers, but not Pac.)

Terri's got two obvious ones. She's fake, plastic, and hideous. But no more than the "talent" at your average tittie bar. And they seem to remain popular with a certain... section of the population. I'd imagine that there's a fair amount of crossover with the wrestling fanbase.

X-Pac may be irritating, and may not exactly light up the world, but he gets some heat. More than others, like him or not.

Miz-ark's been covered before, he's locked in, lucky bastard.

Test... is huge. And he has The Look. He doesn't NEED heat or talent. Consider him the token Luger.

You also have to factor in loyality to the WWE in Terri's case.

Test- has the look... which has been said.... and i think he shows potential.

x-pac- i have liked him on and off throughout his career.... he's still somewhat quick and has heat.

Mark Henry- Big Man. Vince likes big men.

Terri- obvious. Not my taste though.

Terri covinced her ex-husband to return to the WWE as GoldDust, who he turned from a bizarre version of Adrian Street to one of the best entertainers.

Did I miss something, was hollywood knocking on her door?. But she buh gawd refused them to stay with the W.W.EEEE

Terri - I usually give women a lot of benefit of the doubt, I like women on my wrestling show, but Terri annoys me, whenever I find out she's wrestling one of the girls I think "nooo this is bad for them. I don't think she's over like the other girls (ie. pay to see). Her body is gross and strange. Plus she's now taking backstage interview time away from Lilian on Heat and PPV's errrr.

X-pac - annoys me as well, I don't know if "get out of my screen heat" exsist, but if it does,X-pac is that to me, he's just an annoying little rat. But on the other hand last Monday when Goldust hit his "special" broncobuster, and dragged his junk over Pac's face. If Dust did it to anyone else I'd think it's sick and disturbing but doing to Pac I actually enjoyed it....lol

Mark Henry - the biggest flop in WWF history, simple as that.

Test - He's okay, do I think he's great? No, do I think he's the best big man? not really. But he's average and I don't get too upset seeing him. He does have the best taunt in the buisness the fake punch to the ref and then laugh at his face.

IMO

Test is a bit average but an OK midcarder. He has the look and can work a decent match now and then. He'll be good if they add Jericho to the Canada angle, you have Y2J leading the stable, Lance and Christian as a regular tag team, and Test as kinda the interfering enforcery type guy.

X-Pac just needs motivation it seems. He's still a good worker despite his plethora of injuries, and you really get the feeling people will pay good money to see him get his ass kicked.

Terri and Henry though I have nothing to add on - both are a waste of space.

Mr. Henry does also bring in some limited street cred with that World's Strongest Man gig. And unlike the Rock, there's no threat of it going to his head and Hollywood stealing him away...

Wonder how they'd do the storyline if Test ever did anything stupid outside of the ring that caused him to get fired.

I have hoped ever since that battle royal that Test would do something stupid to get himself fired while in the midst of one of his semi-monthly pushes, just so I could see if/how the WWF explained his departure.

Terri - She is a pretty good talker/interviewer, IMO. Smooth delivery, very calm and focused. I'd say she's one of the best WWE women on the mic.

I hate the other three guys, even Test. I've waited long enough for him to 'fulfill his potential', now I just want him to go away.

Street cred with who!? Who cares about that crap? And I WISH Hollywood would steal that waste of space away.

Also, when you last talked to Rock, did he really seem that much different? I've never met the guy, so I really don't know if his attitude has changed any. Lord knows I wouldn't go make movies for 3 times as much as I was making in a wrestling ring if my boss said I could. That'd be dumb. And if has "gone to Rock's head" it should, dude's a star. It's not like his movies are bombing.
