I really have NO CLUE how this is going to generate interest in the ppv on Sunday. I don't know what type of reaction the writers are going for but if it's disgust, then they are dead on. How exactly is this storyline supposed to interest the casual viewer?
Are they supposed to flip the channel, see this and say "Oh yeah honey, that big red masked guy killed a girl and maybe raped her too. I can't wait to see him beat that blond fella and win the World Championship!"
THis is EXACTLY what I thought was going to happen, he "accidentally" killed somebody.
As for the Necrophelia, HHH was just being a dick. Isnt that what good heels are supposed to do?
The thing that got me about the story, and how crappy it is, is that he said it was "10 years ago, when I first started wrestling". Arent we supposed to believe that he was brought in as a new person by Paul Bearer back in 95 or 96, whenever it was?
Plus he said "We were driving, and Animal jumped out and I had to swerve to miss him" What was the Legion of Doom doing out on a "dark night" (no duh!) when the road was wet?
The whole segment blew all kinds of chunks! Even the fans in the arena were so bored with the whole thing that they were "What?"ing the entire segment.
You know it's bad when the most "over" thing about a promo is the catch phrase for a wrestler who no longer works!
There was no point to it...
Finally I try not to be in the group that just hammers away about "HHH conspiracies", but man...c'mon! Is it just me or have the writers decided to give him a verbal handjob every week? Not only is he in practically every segment, but he gets to come off as "the smartest man in wrestling". Not only is he a detective, but he figured out how to thwart the "face" lumberjacks. My, but that HHH is just a super genius! Feh...
I'm done...I'll read the recaps but I'm not going to watch this drek any further. If Smackdown continues to spiral down like it did last week, I won't be there for that either.
Originally posted by DarrylTheHitmanWell, if Kane IS a necrophiliac, that explains why he got along so well with Paul Bearer. To everyone else, Paul was a mortician. To Kane, Paul was a pimp. ;)
HA! That was Dr. Unlikely level of humor there IMO. Sadly, your quote is the only thing I've enjoyed about this entire angle. I would flip to Raw during MNF tonite, and I swear it seemed like every time I flipped over HHH was either on screen or being discussed. When the promo with him forcing the commercial break to job hit, I had my fill for the evening, and can safely say that unless Smackdown does something amazing to add to the PPV lineup, I will miss my first WWF/WWE pay per view event in about 6 years this weekend, as there is no reason on this earth for me to want to see Kane vs. HHH with this angle.
Let Cincy have Jauron: Green Bay34, Chicago 21 Bears go to 2-3 (bye week, thank God)
Watching that whole segment was like watching a car slowly crash into a wall. You could just see it get closer and closers, worst and worst, until it finally slammed into the wall when they talked about Kane's semen. The mentioning of Kane's Semen ranks up their with Konnan's "Toss my salad and peel my potatoes", "We've got pop.", and "It was me Austin, It was me all along!".
Gay weddings, HLA, Kane's semen? I honestly don't know what they will do next.
Flair: "Tonight, it's gonna be Austin, Bradshaw, taking on the NWO!
Flair: I'm not trying to screw you Austin. Tonight, to show that I'm legit, I'll referre your match tonight when you and bradshaw take on the n..w..o!
Flair: You thought that was funny Austin? No one screws with the nature boy! tonight, it's gonna be you and bradshaw taking on X-pac and Big Show!
Flair:That's it, you have pissed of the nature boy WHOOO for the very last time Austin!! Tonight I throwing your ass in a special tag match against the NWO. And your partner is gonna be.........Bradshaw!
Another classic heel vs. heel matchup was Rick Martel/Shawn Michaels at Summerslam 1992. This one, however, was played for comedy, with the two pretty-boy heels agreeing not to hit each other in the face...gold.
