I'd like him to stay. An old familiar face isn't a bad thing as far as I'm concerned, and not too many guys in WWE have a history that didn't occur in the very recent past. Yes Kane and Matt Hardy and Big Show and Jericho have been around for years, but we've been seeing them non-stop for a long time, maybe too long. Tatanka is rare in the sense that he has been slumming around in B promotions, his indy work, if there has been any, has been pretty covert. He'd done nothing since 1995, so he's familiar and yet fresh.
This is more interesting to me than hiring "guy I've never heard of #36".

I smell the nostalgia popping up all over this thread. Yeah, Bobby "The Brain" Heenan had some wonderful commentary for Tatanka matches. Hey, for the record, this someone that after his big face run had terrible heel run. I also think he left wrestling way to soon.
Family was more important at the time. Hmm...ok. I understand that one.

And according to his site, it's the FAMOUS Fallaway Slam. No, wait - it's a THRILLING fallaway slam. No, wait - it's "The Indian Death Drop or Papoose To Go."
Also according to his site, The Repo Man tried to sneak away with victory over Tatanka, but he couldn't do it.
I find it odd that he keeps referring to it as the Papoose To Go, since as someone already mentioned, that was just Heenan's mocking name for it. I do enjoy how in his bio he starts off the WWF portion in first person but within a paragraph is in full third person mode.
Congrats to Cassidy OReilly on getting signed to WWE developmental. Really don’t know how I forgot to pimp him in the “who from ROH/TNA could make it in larger [i.e. WWE] arena environment” thread. He was one of the highlights of early TNA.
