Just so you know, in-progress type threads are generally pretty frowned upon, especially starting multiples about the same show. That said, no, usually the surprises are a bit better than a fat guy with a bone.
Ah, Moondog Spot. I saw a local advertisment the other day for a wrestling school ran by Moondog Spot and Sir Mo! I know those are the guys I would want teaching me!!! (of course, I guess Moondog Spot can at least say he has a gig now)
I used to immediately sign The Backseat Boyz and The Briscoe Brothers in Extreme Warfare Revenge (and later, Total Extreme Wrestling), and have them compete in epic feuds for the WCW World Tag Team Title.
