Jesus Christ, what the hell has this guy done to deserve to be pushed again. God Lord, his storyline when Big Show was champion was hideous. He has no good offense, he cuts monotone promos and almost buried Bull when they were a tag team. Its almost Russo booking to elevuate this guy while Jericho has been doing nothing.

A Fan- I don't get it.

Oh, come on, Bossman/Show ruled. I mean, coffin surfing, Bossman's touching poem about Big Show's dad, and the fact that we all got to learn that the Big Show is a big fat smelly bastard. I mean, who could ask for anything more?

From what I have read and heard, he is a great guy backstage and has been a good guy to Vince, so he gets on TV. He killed a talented guy like Bull's career already. I guess they are going to let him attempt to kill The Book's career as well. It makes no sense. The Book was getting over just fine by himself, so why bring Bossman in? I don't get it, I am upset...I need a Fig Newton.

Heyyyy stop with the Boss Man Bashing! I like the Boss Man!

He didn't kill Bull Buchanan's career ... Bull took care of that by himself. I liked Bull in the RTC but they really didn't give him much to do. Bull isn't that great in the ring yet, which is why he didn't get over and is now down in the minors.

So the WWF decides to give Booker a henchman to add some heat. This is a perfect role for the Boss Man -- it limits him to run-ins, tag matches, and post-match beatdowns. Remember, we are talking about the king of post-match beatdowns ... Stone Cold was serving hard time on Smackdown lemme tell ya.

It's not even a push. It's just like Jericho having Curtis Hughes backing him up a few years ago. Hmmm in fact it's exactly like Jericho and Curtis Hughes. When Boss Man starts wrestling singles matches for some gold, start complaining about a push.

One last point ... who else in the WWF could play this role with Booker? Who else is willing and able to be 1. a lackey for an upper mid-carder 2. who can believably help beat up a Stone Cold 3. but who doesn't lose much heat when he gets his ass handed to him when Stone Cold finally gets his hands on him? Any suggestions?

He may want to improve on how real his microphone bashings to the head look, though. I don't think humor was what they were looking for in that segment with the Austin beatdown.

I hate it! I don't think that Bossman as "Booker's henchman" brings heat. It associated Booker with someone the fans absolutely hate (in an X-Pac sort of way) with Booker. The losing streak Booker is on shows that Booker can have a 'lil buddy and STILL lose. So how in the hell is this helping him? Bossman should be a singles wrestler if he is going to get in the ring, that way he can only suck on his own instead of bringing someone else down to his level.

It is hard to imagine that The Book was in the Summerslam main event just a few months ago.

What losing streak? This was the first time Booker has lost in over 3 weeks. 2 pinfalls on Austin and that huge win over Maven! Booker is just behind Holly on my list and I don't see much of a problem with him losing last night. I mean sure I wanted him to win, but we all knew he wasn't going to. I also have no problem with Bossman being with him, but he really shouldn't wrestle. Those "punches" to Austin proved that. All in all, I'd say that Booker is in better shape now than he was when he was main eventing Summerslam. I mean he pretty much got dominated by the Rock, Austin has put him over cleanly (pinfall-wise) on 2 occasions. He's a heel, he doesn't have three identical initials, so he's not going to dominate.



And I think you're fat. So how do you like me now?

If he is going out there as a bodyguard/manager type then I have no problem with it at all. I do have a problem wiht him getting into the ring though. If the WWF wanted to stick someone with Booker, I think Stevie Richards woulda been perfect. Now there is a guy who should be managing someone.

I remember them too, I wrote one of them. I don't mind the Big Boss Man being back. I don't mind the Big Boss Man being at ringside with Booker T (Aside: Who? Maybe you should try Why?). I don't mind Big Boss Man CHEATING TO WIN~! I certainly don't mind the Big Boss Man driving a coffin away so that someone could ride it. However, I do mind him being a wrestler. As in, I didn't like him that much when he was younger and going through the WWF in his FIRST run, much less his second one and his current one now.

So, to sum up. Boss Man the Cheating Manager: OK. Boss Man the Wrestler: No.

Yeah, Bossman is way better as the manager who beats people up. I watched an old tape of NWA wrestling. Great American Bash 87 it was and he came in and beat up one of the Rock & Roll's. I can't remember which but it was better than watching that classic Bossman/Akeem match at WM6. Point is he should manage and let it lie there..

I don't know guys, Bossman, for me is so bad I kibnda' like the guy. You want him to trip and fall down the ramp so you laugh at him. You want him to be terrible in the ring so you can, look at your friend, give the good ol' thumbs up and say, "Bossman rules!" At least I do. Call me crazy but the bad promos, useless offense to me, accompanied with the a SUIT (!?) make him "cool". So, in summation, does Bossman suck? Oh hell yes he DOES! But who cares?

If people keep calling for Who?, how can the WWF resist the will of the crowds and not bring back Jim Neidhart? He's ready to get nasty and forget his manners y'know.

So, which member of Run-DMC should get to manage Booker?

And, would they include Booker & Aerosmith in a video of "Walk this Way?"

I got no truck with the Bossman push at all - maybe he's retiring and wanted one more run? Doesn't matter, he's a solid brawler. I DO wish he'd get some ring attire, though.

I don't know. I like the "throwback" Big Bubba Rogers gear. But he really needs some suspenders with that outfit.

If they want Bossman to manage fine, but he will have to be a Hands-off manager because he proved last week he can not even do a simple punch and make it look realistic.

My god, the punches to Austin and the Rock were the most fake looking wrestling/brawling I have seen in years. At least make it look like you're hitting them hard Bossman.

*** May be he is really faking it, and will turn on Booker and Vince. That would explain why he did not hit them hard last week..... ***

Wishful thinking.

Vince, make his last run a short run....

Was Booker interviewed on the Monday Night Wars DVD at all? I don't think he was, and that seems like a HUGE oversight. Ditto for Austin.
