I concur, that is definitely in the running for the greatest entrance in history, possibly topping Christian's opera/golden shower entrance. Depending on whether or not that was a real raptor.

You should of seen most of the entrances from Wrestle Kingdom last month. Everything was amazing and sometimes copyright infringing. Alex Shelley came out of a Back to the future Delorean. Tanahashi had his theme played to the ring by Marty Friedman formerly of Megadeth. Prince Devitt burst out of a coffin as Carnage from the Marvel comics. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ijXndtKpzhU Shinsuke Nakamura entrance was lined with stripper poles and pole dancers for my pick of entrance of the year. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=POUqeD_-4ck God Bless you for being so wacky NJPW! I believe in The Shield....

An animatronic raptor entrance might be the only way Batista doesn't get booed at Wrestlemania. "It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone." --- Bart Giamatti, on baseball

Ma'am, there is only one God, and I don't think He dresses like that.

Also, I just discovered that The Shockmaster is, according to Wikipedia, Cody Rhodes's uncle.

Originally posted by InVerse If Fred Ottman hadn't fallen during that entrance, would anyone still remember the character? Probably not nearly as much. Most likely we'd have the same fond recollection of The Shockmaster as we do of Cheatum the evil midget and Giant Gonzales.
A question for anyone who might know....what's the break even point for WWE on PPVs? Maybe not in the literal sense, but what's the minimum they need to do to make running a PPV worthwhile?
