While wishing him well, I can't really say that Vito (or Skull von Krush?) ever really did anything to make me think he could do substantially better than the "guy humiliating himself for comedy relief" role they gave him. Although I think JBL and Regal got as much out of it as could be gotten.
As for the FBI, I noted that on Monday Night, they announced Santino as "now residing in Paterson, NJ" - isn't that just up the road from Sopranoville? An Italian guy? Maybe has some "friends" come to the ring with him sometime??
(Hey, I'm not usually on this side of these discussions. Feels weird!) I'm totally with the concept of "selling the PPV" -- no problem. I certainly would never have expected Steve Austin to come out & actually do much of anything.
