even if it's just for a menacing backstage apperance, is Meng/Haku. He was the Hardcore champion of WCW, though admittedly he hasn't done much better in the WWF. I still think he has a shot at being popular or at least interesting....well?
YES! It is time somebody called for the return of the most fearsome force in wrestling, the master of the deadly Tongan Death Grip, and a man with one amazing head of hair. Seriously, I always find Haku/Meng perversely entertaining, and would love to see him back on tv somewhere.
I especially enjoyed when he would just totally no-sell moves and shrug off chair shots...imagine him vs. the Undertaker, Taker gives him a few shots and Meng just growls, shakes his hair and snarls at him. (Incidentally, since Vince owns WCW, couldn't he give Meng back that name? I always felt it was "tougher" sounding than Haku somehow).
Make Meng someone's "pit bull", like he's a sort of uncontrollable doomsday enforcer. Godfather offers him the ladies instead of a match and Meng chooses all of them. That could be a way to get rid of the ladies if they want to "reinvent" the Godfather and give someone a tiny push. Or, if you totally wanted to change him, give him a 3 piece suit and a pony tail, make him an associate of William Regal. "Mr. Meng, I presume?"
Then the internet would rise up as one and scream how that's a rip-off of Regal and Tajiri.
"Nobody loves the custodian. I come and I sweep and vacuum for you. When you're in the mood to go to the bathroom, I even disinfect it for you! This is the thanks I get?!? All who defy me shall be dis-infected!"
You know, even though Regal is a real, legit tough guy I think a bodyguard would be good for his character. At least something to move past the brass knux thing. And yeah, Meng/Haku would make an excallent bodyguard for him. Otherwise, is Mr. Hughes still available?
Hmm...I think Meng would be better suited to be the bodyguard of the nWo. In fact, they can take most of those Alliance guys we haven't seen since 2001 and have them be the nWo soldiers/fighters/protectors.
Then again, I'll welcome Meng and his AFRO~! back even if he teams with Mike Awesome to be That 70s Team.
...Some fear the Pink... ...But many fear....THE MOUNTIE! (He's handsome, he's brave, and he's strong, you know)
If Hogan really can't pull it together for a one-on-one - and I think they could probably Pat Patterson together a workrate-horrible but storytelling-good match with Cena - then Hogan & Cena Vs. The Real Americans seems like the natural fit.
