I actually dug the Smackdown skit. They're using the OVW angle of Boogeyman being a guy really, really into his character, though instead of the "escaped mental patient" twist, they're saying he was an actor on a failed UPN show who can no longer separate reality from fiction. This is a good way to explain why Long put this looney on his show (it was Cannon's idea) and this might even be a clever way to explain Boogeyman's crappy in-ring ability. If he's just a really built "actor," they could say he has no formal training.

Worse comes to worse, the gimmick runs for a couple of months until Boogeyman is squashed by Undertaker.



On the flip side, congrats to ABC for hiring Tim McGraw to tailor the lyrics to "I like it, I love it" for every halftime highlight show throughout the "Monday Night Football" season. Just last week, my buddy House and I were discussing Cosell's classic highlight narratives in the '70s, and how nobody had approached them since, and I told House, "Only one thing could ever come close, and I know it's a long shot, but what if ABC hired Tim McGraw to tailor the lyrics to 'I Like it, I Love It' for each week of NFL highlights throughout the season?" And wouldn't you know, it happened! See, dreams can come true. --- Bill Simmons, www.sportsguy.net

I know the whole thing might end up sucking, but the guy immediately won me over by bashing that giant Flava Flav clock over his head. If Boogeyman added a "yeeeeeeeeeeeah boyyyyyyyyyyeeeeeee," it would have been my favorite segment ever.

I was wondering why they didn't just give him a pocketwatch instead of a giant clock, which kind of made for unintentional comedy....but I guess you can't break a pocketwatch over your head.

      The funny thing about that: Jim Cornette was treating the character EXACTLY like that (i.e. "crazy guy who THINKS he's the Boogeyman, so keep away from this nut if you come to an OVW show"), when WWE came down on him for not treating the character seriously.

      That all led to the night in OVW when Boogeyman came out with the sliding horns on this head. He got laughed at by some OVW student off-camera (and it really WAS off-camera; you never see it on the show), Cornette slapped the student and then got fired.

      So it's just ironic that WWE is now looking at the character and saying, "Boy, Cornette was right - this character sucks if we take him to be a real boogeyman, we'll have to say he's a nut."

Of course since WWE now hires out Nickelodeon writers that probably used to do ARE YOU AFRAID OF THE DARK? there will be the inherent subtext in that...is The Boogeyman really a nut or is he really The Boogeyman. Just like with Muhammed Hassan, I am going to come out right now and quote Marvin with, "This is all going to end in tears."

Deep down, everyone knew how Hassan was going to end up.

I don`t know about everyone else, but I am eagerly awaiting DEAN's depiction of the Boogeyman.

I did like the retconning that the Boogeyman promos were for a UPN TV show and not a wrestler...they never did have a WWE logo on them or anything.

NORMALLY I don't reply twice to a thread but I JUST saw the segment most of you have already seen.

I agree with the exact phrase Micheal Cole said after his interview.

Cole: "What the hell was that?"


This sucker falls right into bizarro world of WWE. I agree with a squash from Taker to put an end to him or just like Mordecai lose to Rey Mistero.

X-E's co-Worst Poster of all time! JKyle.com says:

The only way this can work is if everyone gets the joke but him. I.E. half laugh, half get the "WTF" expression when he's seen/mentioned.

I will donate $300 to the charity of choice to any WWF writer who can get him in a skit with the Mexicools. But only if one points and screams "CHUPACABRA!" at him.

Don't even front like that show wasn't better than the last two Raws.

Even the failed relaunch...

I'm gonna say they hired Rocket Power guys.

Yeah...the original name for Kenzo Suzuki was Hirohito

And Cade & Murdoch were called TNT in dark matches.

What about Mordecai? That was trashed as well.

It doesn't happen too often but WWE has been known to change their mind.

The Boogeyman is a giant, scary man, with his face painted like Darth Maul, with no front teeth (top or bottom), and he broke a giant clock over his head.

I do not know how anyone can NOT love this man.



The answer to WWE's financial problems...

Never 'Wiener of the Day', and is actually quite bitter about it.

Point Taken.

But didn't Mordecai get hurt?

I don't think so. I am pretty sure they realize it was basically The Undertaker gimmick just dressed all in white and an old Oompaloompa wig.

Guess you all really don't read threads...ugh I actually have to quote myself set this straight. The end of the Mordecai character came in a regular Smackdown match. I posted it above now I'm posting it once again below. No injury, nothing spectacular, and it was with the hurrcarrna.

GOLD! I'm still laughing over this.

Put me down for 3 bills as well, making it an even 6 hundy.

This HAS to happen.
