As far as the Undertaker goes, his short hair makes him look a hell of a lot meaner. He looks like some psycho prison guy these days. I'd like to see him pick on more 'litle guys'.
Yeah, UT is now looking like a bad-ass. That tombstone piledriver he gave to The Rock was BRUTAL. I totally marked out for it. Moreover, doing that to the Rock makes him that much more of a definitive bad-ass. That is definitely a good thing. Now if only he loses his current enterence theme.
...Some fear the Pink... ...But many fear....THE MOUNTIE! (He's handsome, he's brave, and he's strong, you know)
I think it's mostly just timing for Taker. Really, who else is a bad-ass heel right now? We got whiny Jericho heel (which I like), whiny Angle heel (which is getting old), and...ummm...The Dudley Boyz? Really, Taker looks so much more awesome because he's got a niche all to himself. Plus, he's totally belivable as "Big Texan who doesn't think you're respecting him so he's gonna kick your ass." As face "stand around no selling till I chokeslam/poochiebomb you," he was really quite boring. I think most people have liked the Taker, they just wanted him to do something.
They still gotta work something out for his entrance though. Right now, the Pavlov's dogs in the audience still go apeshit when he comes out. That's not the response you want your ultra badass heel to get. Maybe a few more ritual slayings of the Rock will get him booed properly.
Is a last ride through some piece of furniture at No Way Out too much to hope for? Rocky's always been the Taker's bitch after all.
No matter how bad things may get, just imagine what would happen if Vince Russo was booking again, and you will feel better.
---=---:---=--- [Look up a line] Wow, that belt looks like crap... I'll take it and carry it around for years and see if people can take it away from me... What? What was that? You mean even THIS belt doesn't matter! What? I'm insulted! Get away from me you... you... defiler!
That would of been cool, but at the same time it would of made Bret to look like a hypocrite to suddenly appear as a referee after all the stuff he's said about the WWF in the last 3 1/2 years. So I think Bret made the right decision, IMO. -Alex
