I don't know about you guys but I miss Paul E. behind the mic. Yeah, he shills the ECW guys to no end and he screams a lot - but he was actually a true HEEL comentator and he PUTS OVER the talent in the ring.

Not some dirty old pedophile ranting and raving about "puppies" and having his voice reach a new octave every week that even Mariah Carey couldn't hit.

Classic Heyman-isms:

Paul: "There he is the new WWF Champion, Stone Cold Steve Austin, who sold his soul for the WWF Championship. Now take off your damn cowboy hat and applaud the man! Stop being such a damn crybaby. You wanted him to win the title. 'Oh - he broke his neck. He had spinal surgery. Wah. What a comeback. He wanted the title.' Well, he GOT it. Why don't you be happy for YOUR friend?"

JR: "Why don't you KISS MY ASS and shut up?!"

Paul: "Cause you ain't the boss!"

And let's not forget that classic promo he did on the Smackdown before Survivor Series 2001.

If this split actually does happen, I hope and pray he becomes a commentator again.

Can you dig it, sucka?

I miss him too. To me, he's always been entertaining from his Dangerous Alliance days in WCW to his ECW days and to his recent WWF exploits. I'll take him over that "silly little giblet" Michelle Cole anyday.

Cross-posting between 2 forums is no big deal.

I definitely miss Heyman. Probably my favorite line from him as color commentator (as best I can remember):

"What kind of name is Christian? What were his parents thinking? That would be like my parents naming me 'jew'."

If you set your expectations low enough, you will never fail.

I think I'm in the minority here, but I don't miss the guy at all. He annoyed me, but not in a good heel kind of way. More like an X-Pac or Big Bossman kind of way. I marked out like crazy when the King came back. He definately makes the product in general a lot more fun and I'm glad he's back. Sure, maybe his lines are a litle tired, but he's the King. You just gotta look at it like he's your favorite uncle. Maybe some of the stuff he says is kinda corny, but he's a great guy and it's always fun to be around him.

Rhyno's Goar will never be the same. I for one would like to see him as a manager of a heel faction.

Sometimes, things write themselves. This is one of those things. This thing, it is a joke.

From what I hear from reading recaps, Lawler is even stealing Heyman's lines! Namely telling wrestlers who do spots on the American announce table to go over to the spanish guys, which was one of my favorite Heyman moments: during the ultimate submissions match at Backlash, Angle slammed Benoit's head on the table Heyman responded with "The Spanish guys are over there!"

I also loved the way he kept trying to claim little 150lb Spike Dudley was a bully.

Heyman as manager is played. It's got no shot while we're all hepped up about the nWo.

Clearly, the role for the man is crafting interesting mid-card angles. I don't need to see him on my TV - I need to see his influence there.

In the mid-card.

In addition to seeing Heyman back on color commentary, I'd love to see him do color commentary for Miami Hurricanes football next season. Why? Well, because of the name of our 2nd-string tailback, who will likely be our starting tailback next season...

Frank Gore.

Hell, I'm sure I did a few Heyman impersonations when Gore scored or tore off a 50-yard chunk of yardage on one play. Imagine what the real deal could do...

You know, I'd rather like to see Sting lose here... to Monty Brown... thanks to Christian turning on him. Think about it. (I usually HATE fantasy booking, but anyways...) Sting says he wants to help out the company by helping the younger guys get over.
