If you could take someone's gimmick from the past and attach it to someone that wrestles currently, who would you give it to?

For example: Benoit and Angle as the Can-Am Connection

If you're going to go that far, how about Albert as Bastion Booger? Or, if Test "The Dumpster" falls flat, have him return to his roots as Heavy Metal Van Testhammer?

Chris Nowinski already seems to be channeling The Genius, albeit in a slightly different (and far more charismatic) form than Lanny Poffo's original character.

And gaaaa, Steph! LOL... Albert's horrible enough to look at when he comes to the ring without his shirt on! To see him in the Bastion Booger outfit would require changing Velocity's rating to TV-MA with a disclaimer stating, “Caution: Viewing Bastion Booger might be harmful to your health.

Wrestling has been rhyming with ass. I miss shows and it makes me all shades of ambivalence. WWE is starting to suck again. The crops?

ahhh...The Repo Man. There was a heel everyone could love. Remember when he repoed the little girl's bike? I used to love how he'd run around yelling "Pay your bills!". That was some comic gold.

I really dig the idea of Jindrak and O'Haire as Demolition. Those two are bad ass enough to pull it off. The Human Ferris Wheel is still one of the coolest moves in wrestling.

Let's see....

1. Mark Henry as Doink the Clown.

2. Billy Gunn, Billy Kidman, Bill Watts and Bill Goldberg as "The Assmen"... all of them doing Gunn's old character. (And what were the lyrics to that song? "I love to pick 'em, I love to sniff 'em, I love to stick 'em, I love to put storm windows on 'em....")

3. Any member of the road crew as "The Ringmaster."

4. Triple H as The Shockmaster! Think about it! No talking!

But seriously:

1. Jericho as the Million-Dollar Man. He would be so good at torturing children and yelling, "Not good enough!"

"I don't like being outdoors, Smithers. For one thing, there are too many fat children."

O'Haire would be a perfect fit for Demolition, but I'm not sure about Jindrak. Seems too "pretty boy" for a gimmick like that.

TONIGHT! It's the big go-home show for Wrestlemania! Will it match the intensity of last Monday's Raw? My guess is "no". Plus, Kofi Kingston exercises his rematch clause against Wade Barrett. Will he win the Intercontinental title back?
