Most likely yes. Or too many people worried about him snapping someone's neck, not that we haven't seen that problem with the Rocker Dropper before. I guess they figure the people taking it now are more likely to know how to take the move clean.
Hummm, are ya'll over analyzing...or it is just me blindly hoping the Bald population in the WWF doesn't raise any time soon?
I think it's an interesting question, but I think it falls into the "Billy might kill someone" category for why he doesn't do the Jackhammer anymore. It scared me to death when he wrestled Benoit and almost killed him with that tilt-a-whirl slam once. He doesn't do that move much anymore, either.
But as for Test going under the ropes now, it's pretty obvious they're trying to do something to make him look different than Diesel. That was almost the whole point of Test in the first place, being a Nash-alike. I sense the loosing of the pants pretty soon.
Test hasn't been coming in over the ropes for quite some time now. Billy Gunn using the Jackhammer was probably too big a risk.
However, have you noticed that recently nobody has really 'hulked out' of a sleeperhold? Sign of things to come? And D'Lo, Godfather and X-Pac havent been on tv for a while, and they all did some sort of legdrop move in their matches. Oh, and Test stopped saying 'sweet' which he did a few weeks in a row. Kane used to do a side walk slam kinda move, has he been doing that one since last year even?
Point: I am rambling but trying to say don't read too much into certain things all the time.
The real reason HBK has never made that much talked about comeback used to bounce out of synch with the other Nitro Girls.
I have it on good sources that the WWF is trying to spend huge amounts of money to bring back The Iron Shiek, Nikoli Volkov and Dusty Rhodes to form the Old World Order. That's why nobody is doing the Camel Clutch, singing the Russian National Anthem, or wearing polka dots anymore.
My sources also say that the plan is to feud them with the nWo, until Hogan shockingly jumps to the oWo. The WWF is hoping that by Summerslam they'll be able to do their huge, money-drawing "hip replacement angle".
Does this turn Vickie face? She got dropped by her longtime meal ticket in favor of a younger latina, and both of them are now full-on heel. Does she need the cougar gimmick to stay relevant to in-ring angles?
