I shed no tears for the Cat's release. Yes, I laughed at his elimination at the RR, but he was one of the worst wrestlers I can remember. He was horrid on Velocity as well, but I will agree that Ernest can talk. I hope TNA doesn't pick up Cat unless he is going to manage D-Lo or something.
Damn you WWE for making me change my sig. I'm sure you have good enough reasons to get rid of Shannon, but that doesn't mean I have to like it. Let me thus be the first to say: BRING BACK DAFFNEY!
Originally posted by Freeway420It sez "WRESTLING" on the marquee, so they'd better be putting wrestlers on my television.
It also says "Entertainment" on the marquee.
With this company, some would argue that's the only place you can find it any more.
Anyway, I liked the Cat well enough, but not well enough that I'm going to grieve over his firing. This one just strikes me as really, really abrupt.
I mean, Zach Gowen we hadn't seen on SmackDown in quite a while, had we? And I don't believe we'd seen Kanyon on the show in months, and the last time we had they weren't exactly doing anything to rile the crowd's interest in him. But what did Miller do to be on SmackDown one week and then quietly deleted from the show and fired the next? Why would they give a man frequent screen time and then suddenly can him? Confuzzling.
But, oh well. If I had my way, Ernest Miller's WWE career would be thriving in a long, humerous feud with a newly hired Scott Norton. Can't have everything, I guess.
Does anyone else think the Cat was released so his role could go to Orlando Jordan? Who knows? Maybe that's why they're keeping Lamont around.
Smackdown needs more Lamont!
Edge: So it shouldn't be long before I come back, since Smackdown's gonna need another main eventer. Funaki: There's always Bob Holly. Edge: HAHAHAHAHAHA!! What? You're serious? DUDE! How long have I been out???
I have a distinct memory that there was a point years ago where someone posted a roster breakdown here, and I noticed that it seemed disproportionately face-heavy. Everyone told me that more faces = more merch sales.
