Well you know something, Mean Gene... I don't think that promo can beat Vince's promo from May 2000 (stolen from CRZ's recaps):
"Now, I understand that there are a number of you...I understand that there are a number of you - I understand that - I understand that some of you feel as though that the McMahon-Helmsley Faction last Monday on RAW just wasn't fair to Chris Jericho. I understand that many of you feel as though, since the McMahon-Helmsley Faction made Chris Jericho compete on three different occasions, defending the intercontinental title until he lost it, that it just wasn't fair. Well, that's just too damn bad. Because, if you don't think it was fair Monday, you're probably the same kind of people who wait in line, you'll wait forever in line like sheep all lined up, you'll wait in line waiting your turn, and then you'll see someone like myself very aggressively cut in the front of the line, and you'll say 'wait a minute, that's not fair!' And what about the parking lot - we've all been there, there you are patiently waiting for your little parking space, and it suddenly appears, you start driving your car--oop! Someone zips in, cuts you off, parks their car and you say 'wait a minute, that's my parking space - that's not fair!' What about - what about on those few occasions when you will honestly and objectively look into the full-length mirrah - oh ho, all right now we're gettin' somewhere. And you women look in the mirror and you look at yourselves and you say, 'uhh - ewww - look at the cellulite hanging from my hips and my buttock - that's not fair!' And you men, you men won't even come CLOSE to the mirror - but on that occasion when you might just take a quick glimpse - you say 'oh, that can't be me - no, that can't be me with the pot belly and the small genatalia - oh no that's not fair!' And you'll look at yourselves - go ahead, look at yourselves. Look at the person sitting next to you - yeah - look at 'em! Look at the person sitting in front of you - go ahead - look at all of you! You look at yourselves, and you compare yourselves to the beautiful people here in this ring and you say 'That's not FAIR!' And, forget about the looks - what about the *mun-eh*, huh? What about the money? Hah? You scrimp and you save, you work yourselves half to death, and still you can't afford what you really want! That's not fair! It's not fair that some people are rrrich and you're not - that's not fair! And you know, you have to face the facts that the vast majority of you are just born with inferior DNA - you say, 'it's not fair I'm born with inferior DNA!' But you feel sorry for yourselves, you wallow in your self-pity, and then you have to face the facts that life...is - not - fair. And some of you, a select few, you might as well go ahead and admit it - you might as well own up to the philosophy for some of you, and that is that life SUCKS - *and then you diiiiiiiie.*"
(edited by Swordsman Yen on 9.11.03 0005) Dear Vince,
It was a very cool promo, but at the risk of sounding like a broken record, did it have to be VINCE that delivered it? Just think of what a promo like that (with the lights and whatnot) would do to put over a guy like O'Haire.

Tiny: Wayne! How you doin'? Wayne: Hey Tiny, who's playing today? Tiny: Jolly Green Giants and the Shitty Beatles. Wayne: Shitty Beatles? Are they any good? Tiny: Man, they suck! Wayne: Then it's not just a clever name --- from Wayne's World
Kirk, crackers are a family food. Happy families. Maybe single people eat crackers...we don't know. Frankly, we don't want to know. It's a market we can do without.-- Kirk Van Houten's former boss at the cracker factory

That's only if O'Haire could come up with something that creative. I figured no Superstar got their lines written for them. Plus if anyone tried to do that promo like Vince did it, I don't believe it would be any good.
Originally posted by Net Hack SlasherHis promo was okay, but like I mentioned on the SD thoughts it really lost all impact when he asked for forgiveness for not what he's done but what he's about to do. Which is pretty much word by word is what the voice over was saying about Shane-Kane Survivor Series ad.
...and his 'inject poison into the WWE' speech from before the NWO arrival.

I'd imagine that it's only for the guys whose hair isn't really part of who they are, eg. Test, Christian, Matt Hardy. I don't think they'd expect Booker to cut off his dreads or Kane to start sporting a shorn scalp.
