Well, since the exciting necrophilia angle has attracted ZERO main stream attention, maybe the media isn't as idiotic as I've always thought (although the 'Do you think the sniper is amongst us' does rank up there in stupidity). Perhaps the main stream media finally GETS IT after looking idiotic during the Chuckabilly Wedding Angle. Despite this, I'm sure Vince is shocked that the cable networks haven't gone from wall to wall sniper talk to 'How could Triple H cheat on Vince's daughter with a corpse' talk.
I want you to know, I agree with everything I've just said.
Why does everybody keep saying that Vince was looking for mainstream media attention with this? If he really wanted media attention, he would have the done it the only way he knows: press releases and appearances. We would have had a press release last week saying that we will see footage of "Kane" performing necrophilia on this week's RAW. It would have had comments from Stephanie saying stuff like "Well, necrophilia is certainly topical in today's society, and is worth exploring in our entertainment medium." Kane would have gone on Today and laughed it up with Matt Lauer, where Kane would have been presented with a gift from some Human-Corpse Love Association. It's fair to say that Vince really wasn't looking for media attention with this one.
I wouldn't be at all surprised if they have a sniper angle, in which wrestlers get shot, sniper-style(complete with gloved hands holding a rifle, and the old target in the crosshairs), and then it will be a big whodunnit angle...
I personally think it's much too early for this kind of talk. I mean, Goldust's old gimmick would have gotten boring pretty fast too, if it weren't for Dustin's performance ability. He took a gimmick and made it into a CHARACTER.
