From Dave Meltzer's daily update:

"There is also a video package regarding a newcomer called Mr. America. The plan is for it to be revealed as Hulk Hogan doing the Midnight Rider (wearing a mask) gimmick."

Somehow, this doesn't surprise me at all. Although if Hogan was going to go under the mask again, the stunning return of "Hulk Machine" would have been kind of a mark-out moment for me.

Seeing as there are no more Machines for him to join, I think the debut of Hulk Mysterio Jr. would be a lot funnier.

What's the area code for Tampa, Florida?

Okay, long story short about the Midnight Rider. This was Dusty Rhodes under a mask about 15 years ago in the NWA (before WCW). If you've ever seen Dusty Rhodes, he's pretty easy to place, even with a mask. He would come to the ring with the song "The Midnight Rider" by the Allman Brothers blaring in the background, and do all the same signature moves (bionic elbow, flip-flop-n-fly). It was really lame, but that's StarDust for ya.

I bet our boy Flea can give up the area code for Tampa. I think he's from around that region.

Nope. Tampa's 813.

But the Hulkster lives in Clearwater. That'll be a big 727, brother.

1)Flex Loser was making his "HIGHLY anticipated" return.

Sadly, Greyhound will be lex's new "Lex Express".


2)"Mr. USA" Saba Simba.

3)Or, sweet merciful crap let me be wrong, Mark Henry.

My question is why they need a Mr. America when they already have the greatest American representative on the roster, in Kurt Angle.

They should pull the Dusty Rhodes-Dick Murdoch thing and have Hogan come back as a gorilla in a cage with Rikishi. The Gorilla helps Rikishi out against Sean O'Haire and Piper, only to be revealed during the match as Hogan.

Well, there were a few incarnations of the Midnight Rider. The first was Dusty in Florida in '83, after he lost a loser leaves town match to Kevin Sullivan. Dusty returned, the Midnight Rider mysteriously disappeared. At least, until X-Mas night, when the 'Midnight Rider' interfered on behalf of Sullivan in a Sullivan/Rhodes match.
The next appearance by the Midnight Rider was in 1988, after Dusty accidentally hit Jim Crockett with a baseball bat during an attempted Tully Blanchard beatdown of (post car crash) Magnum T.A. Dusty received a 120 day suspension, and was stripped of the U.S. Title. The suspension was lifted after a little over a month, and the 'Midnight Rider' was defeated and stripped of his mask in the U.S. Title Tourney by Barry Windham, revealing to the world that the Italian Stallion was indeed the Midnight Rider.

Now, onto Hogan. On the positive side, its not Luger. Also, it means Vince is now up to 1986 in stealing his own gimmicks; and hopefully Mean Gene can track down Mr. America at a Japanese Shinto Temple.

I was just afraid they were going to do "Stone Cold vs. McMahon" redux, with Hogan filling the Stone Cold role.

This is actually a step up from that in my opinion...

Of course, the question is whether or not they'll actually acknowledge Mr. America's obvious identity, or if they'll play dumb. I mean, it's going to be pretty damn plain who's under the hood if ol' Captain Stars 'n' Stripes shows any of his bright orange wrinkly skin.

Oh, and by the way, this idea fucking sucks.

Under the 1986 Bruno Sammartino: 'I think that's Giant Baba under the mask', how long until Michael Cole states: 'Tazz, I can't believe it. It must be 'Superstar' Billy Graham under that mask?

Or for those who dont remember the midnight rider, its like the Yellow Dog, from pre NWO WCW days.

Put pillman under a mask, and repeat the dusty gimmick.

Except Yellow Dog with Pillman actually was a deep psychological manuever. In Florida in the mid 80's, Ron Bass ran Barry Windham out of town, and mysteriously the Yellow Dog came into Florida to avenge Windham, having an extremely bloody dog collar chain match in the process.
Thus, when Pillman used the Yellow Dog routine in his feud with Windham, it was Pillman stealing an idea of Windham's.
