Well, the WWF is obviously not concerned about it, or they wouldn't be sellng those foam "What?" thingies. I imagine it's pretty much anything goes to make a buck, even dissing the national anthem and other wrestlers.

When SCSA first started using What to annoy whoever he was talking to, it made sense, but got old fast, IMO.
When the Fans picked it up, as long as they were doing it when prompted, or to piss off an Austin opponent, or Vince, it still made sense, and was kinda fun.

But now, doing it whenever it can be fit in, its worse than WASSUP!.

Of course these phrases propogate and last because they're short and can be shot in quick.
It takes a few seconds to rattle off, "And that's the Bottom Line", or"Tell me he didn't just say that"

But "What", "Wassup", and "Spoon" are all short and quick, easy to throw in. (At least Wassup required the one you were speaking to, to repy in kind!)

Also I like Storm's Mention of the People's Elbow.

When Rock first started using it, I loved the move. He never scored a pin with it, it didn't make the fans happy (At first) since Rock was NOD Heel, and he was using an overly exagerated move to piss off the crowd. The move was meant to make you hate him more, the proverbial spitting on a man while he was down.

Of course then the Rock remarkably became Face for no apparent reason, (Seriously do you all remember fans slowly beginning to cheer on the pompous heel. His Face turn was merely a formality)
ANd sadly the People's Elbow was getting him wins.

Why can't the Rock be kicking bums off his nicely mowed Lawn in Florida once again!

I remember that promo. It was from WM14 before his IC Match with Ken Shamrock.

He turned face b/c the fans refused to boo him. Similar with Austin (on both occasions) and with HHH right now. When he re-turned heel at Survivor Series 98, it worked at first - but while he was feuding with Foley - he got cheered again and they started "Singing Along with the Rock." That heel turn was doomed to fail for the most part.

As far as Lance goes - at first it just seems like he's whining - but he has a point in "What?" hurting heel promos. Though, he should do what Angle and Vince do and incorporate the "What?"s into his promos.

There is an interview on WWF.com that actually centers on 'What?' as well. Austin gives his thoughts on it.

In short he cannot believe it is this popular and seemingly gets a kick out of it being used during other man's promos.



More than that, my man... he got a kick out of the fans saying “What?” during the National Anthem. Not only would Austin not come out during the anthem and ask the fans, very seriously, to show some respect-- but he thinks it's funny as hell!

And in New York City, of all places. It just goes to show you what kind of level wrestling has sunk to in the last year.

About the People's Elbow controversy. I can think of two finishers that are actually as bad, if not worse. Test's “Wotsitolla Boot” and Scotty 2 Hotty's “Worm”. Oh, and the Stinkface, as well. Don't get me started about the Stinkface.

And I agree with Kawshen, The Rock should be kicking bums off his freshly mowed Miami lawn. Hell, everything he does is very heelish to me. Shaking hands with Lance Storm after a loss, only to Rock Bottom him. Making fun of Kevin Kelly. (OK, granted, that's fun). But he should lay the hell off the Coach, Coachman is damn cool when he's not trying to be a Lawler-esque pervert and is just being a genuine nice guy.

Well, maybe Austin believes that by chiming in with all the "what's" the audience is more willing to actually listen to the anthem.

Or maybe he just thought it was funny and he's a moron, I don't know.

Dude, no.

Hate Test all the fuck you want, and you probably should, but never EVER should a move where a guy kicks another guy in the face as hard as he can (well, that's what it's supposed to look like, anyway) be put into the same category as a super-delayed falling chop to the chest or the sticking of an ass in a face.

Agreed. No existing finisher is more believable than the good old fashioned "Boot-to-the-Head"
