If they are going to be serious about using them, I would look forward to seeing Japanese or Mexican workers in the WWF. I think that the push of Jazz/Trish really shows me that they might be ready to make a commitment into Cruisers. I remember how the WCW cruisers really took off after that classic 6-man tag on Nitro. The WWF needs a blockbuster, long match like that to get it going. We will see, but I can seriously see the Main Eventers scared of getting upstaged by the cruisers like they were in WCW. Speaking of Cruisers...I Would love to see that HHH-Taka match again. That was awesome!
One last question, at WM14 Taka defended the Light Heavyweight title against someone, who was it?

January 4th 1999 - The day WCW injected itself with 10 gallons of Liquid Anthrax...AKA...The day Hogan "Defeated" Nash to win the WCW title in front of 40,000.
Sorry, no. The WWF is full of too much talent right now that isn't being used properly, because there isn't enough time on the shows. Bringing in more characters people could careless about is not going to drive the ratings or sell merchandise. As much as people hate it, the WWF is having good ratings, they put UPN in third two out of three weeks, the NWO shirts are selling like hot cakes and the casual fan is taking notice. The Japanesse guys would ok if the split happens and they need more guys for one of the shows which I doubt. The WWF doesn't need more wrestlers right now, they need more writers with more balls.
In one of my all-time favorite matches, Mutoh/Chono vs. Hase/Sasaki from November 1991, Mutoh comes to the ring wearing a Cornell t-shirt.
"The best reason for committing loathsome & detestable acts -and let's face it, I am considerably something of an expert in the field - is purely for their own sake. Monetary gain is all very well, but it dilutes the tastes of wickedness to a lower level that is obtainable by anyone will an overdeveloped sense of avarice. True and baseless evil is as rare as the purest good - and we all know how rare THAT is." - Acheron Hades, THE EYRE AFFAIR by Jaspar Fforde
I think even a 1.1 would be an improvement for what is currently being shown. As much hype in mainstream media that UFC their ratings are basically the same as TNA if not worse. Their buyrate is where its at.
