One of the guys supposedly tapped for a big singles push on Smackdown is Shelton Benjamin. I'd like to see them give him a good series of singles wins and move him up into a feud with Cena over the US Title.

I'm sure Big Show will get another chance as a top level heel on Smackdown.

It looks like they're going to run with the Guerrero/Angle feud for quite some time, too.

And of course Nostalgia Undertaker going over everyone as well and sticking out like a sore thumb with his dated gimmick.

When I look at "Mr. Overrated" himself, I see potential for such an awesome World Champion and/or top heel in Sean O'Haire. 'Course I am a bit nutty. I still think Vince is missing a big opportunity. Sean O'Haire's is so unique, with a little work he could be great.
But we'll probably get a Matt Morgan push.

Okay, I have a legit question here...

Did you watch a lot of Sean O'Haire's OVW stuff before he was called up? I ask because I know you're a vocal supporter of his, and if you're basing all opinion on the exceedingly limited WWE screentime and his produced-to-the-hilt early vignettes then it seems kind of off to attack the fed for pushing Morgan base don his look when you're advocating doing the same thing with O'Haire.

    I'm not going to debate the "he hasn't had a good match" theory-his Shane series were watchable at the very best-but I'd say he's definitely over. If they moved him to SmackDown they totally reinvent him-new music, maybe some short tights, ease slowly away from the "totally unstoppable monster" vibe they've instilled in him. He'd still be a freka of nature capable of brutalising anyone, sure, but just with less of the crappy sub-two-minute squashes.






Truthfully, if they had pushed Kane hard last summer after his unmasking instead of the aborted Austin angle and then sticking him with Vince's son, he could have been an effective replacement for Lesnar on SD. Hell, he might have accidentally done an Eddy and been an over face in-spite of the writers before the McMahon feud of heat killing. However, the momentum he could have had last August dissipated, and should he (as assumed by 99% of the board) get disposed of by Taker yet again at Mania, its tough to see him instantly having the credibility of being a monster heel, and with the unmasking card already played its tough to see how to re-invent Kane yet again so rapidly.



Pondering whether the world is ready for the Red Sox Nation Lawrence Welk Workrate Report.

No, I didn't watch a lot of his OVW work. What I saw of him in WCW and Velocity was passable, but I certainly don't expect him to be a "wrestling" champion. I mean there have only been a few of those. I see charisma and an awesome look, neither of which are present on Matt Morgan. And I'm not talking about "roided-up" thing either. Morgan was presented to us out of nowhere(Tough Enough, a show I hate) and possesed no type of character(or at least skill), therefore I won't care about him until they do. I'm fascinated with O'Haire the way I was fascinated with Undertaker(ahem).
