Originally posted by wordlifeI could see him being a manager for a group of guys and calling it "The Gentleman's Club" and have them have a tea room in the back where they sit and chat and have them all dressed in suits.
If they were to do that, every week you'd have Eric Bischoff showing up at some point looking to get a lap dance from Terri for himself and for his wife.

I agree with the idea of making him a manager to guys like Storm, Test and Christian (hey, The Un-Americans, reunited! I swear that wasn't intentional...) Anyhoo.... he is great on the mic and could really help to get angles over. And if the characters of Paul Heyman, Teddy Long and yes even Rico have taught us anything over the past coupla years, its that old school heel managers are a good thing.
I think Regal is one of the top 3 entertaining in the WWE. Maybe top 2.
Like all of you the Regal/Tajiri thing was fantastic. Man when they brought in Tajiri as a servant boy for Regal, boy did a lot of us freaked out. But they did a perfect job, slowly showing Tajiri's kickass viciousness with Regal's reaction of "Oh sh*t, what do we have here. I better not piss him off" and slowly showing Tajiri respect, not because Regal's a good person but he knows Tajiri might freak out on him. But we all knew it was a matter of time before Regal pushed the wrong button and get's mist.
I also liked him being forced to pretend to be Trish's boyfriend, which everyone could see right through LoL during the Vince/Trish thing. With Regal being annoyed just by the presence of Trish and vise-versa with Trish on Regal.
The only time I really didn't like Regal was the Unamericans stuff. They took away everything that made him an fun character and made him a one tone angry character who wears generic tights and carries flags... But later on in the Storm/Regal partnership I started getting into it and seemed like they were getting more chemistry as a team. I think if they added Dawn to the team as Storms girlfriend/buddy, I think this team really could add some personality with Dawn rubbing Regal the wrong way with everything she does
cause there's limits to our liberties. 'Least I hope and pray that there are, cause those liberal freaks go too far.
I'll crush all opposition to me And I'll make Ted Kennedy pay If he fights back, I'll say that he's gay
So, am I wrong, or doesn't TNA now sign its wrestlers to contracts. I guess he could still just leave, but shouldn't they have had something concrete in place before they, you know, used the guy and positioned him as a major player.
