It appears that Awesome, Stasiak, and Horace Hogan (did anyone actually know he was signed to begin with) have been given their notice. Hopefully Awesome goes to wherever Masato Tanaka is, so perhaps he can recapture the magic he had in late '99. As for Stasiak and Horace, maybe they can join David Sammartino in the 'I'm related to a former World Champion but I suck' Tour Across the Netheregions.



Thank you Mr. Wanz for the check, now you get an AWA World Title Reign. But be careful, my boy Greg is a heat machine.

Maybe it's for the better. Poor Stasiak and Awesome never did get any TV time on WWE.

On a happier note, (if you consider Stasiak being cut sad) Lance Storm mentioned that Ultimo Dragon is planning a comeback. In Lance's own words, "Ultimo Dragon at 75% is still better than most of us at 100%."

Mike Awesome had ONE important role in WWE. During the Invasion, he won the Hardcore Championship. He was the first invading wrestler to win a title.

Other than that, I agree, these guys were pretty useless (I swear, Awesome got his power from his hair).

You know, I never hated Stasiak. I actually feel sorry for him. OK, maybe he wasn't the greatest in the ring, but he wasn't that bad. And look at the gimmicks the E saddled him with:

1. Jacqueline and Terri's love slave
2. The moron who runs into things
3. The nutcase who thinks he's from his own planet

Not exactly a treasure trove of opportunities to get over.

Wait! That's it! Maybe... maybe those three gimmicks are tied together!

Maybe, after being a love slave, he needed to forget, but instead of drinking, he opted to give him self a concussion by running into things, and it worked, but his brains ended up getting scrambled, and he started coming up with imaginary planets and bad poetry!

YES! I solved the mystery!

Stasiak wasn't the most trusted guy in the locker room. He was canned a couple of years ago for recording private conversations in the locer room.

Actually, it was recording while travelling. With Steve Blackman and Davey Boy Smith, IIRC.

Thanks for the correction. I had forgotten the exact circumstances. I knew it had something to do with recording conversations.

Come on! If Stasiak was a HOSS BY GAWD, he'd be able to get over.

Stasiak's finest moment was during Stone Cold Steve Austin Appreciation Day, where he tried to say something about Austin, and it took 48 tries to say it.

If I recall correctly, Stasiak WAS fairly over when he was "guy that runs into things". It was pretty funny, especially the little mini-feud with Rock.

I thought it was funny anyway...



Since everyone else is doing it (ok, not EVERYONE, but...)

Vikings (0-3) - Looking like a sad year to be a Vikes, fan, and only getting by on my hate for the Rams and...
Badgers (5-0) - The fact that, despite the fact that we looked like crap against friggin' Northern Illinois, we killified Arizona and are close to being bowl bound.
Twins (90-66) - I have no delusions of granduer, but this certainly makes up for being a fan during all the "lean years".

Awesome didn't get a fair chance, because of politics. As soon as Undertaker said he couldn't work, the writing was on the wall and he would never break past jobber. See also: Page, Diamond Dallas

Politics suck!

That, and Awesome did kinda fuck Heyman over before when he left ECW to go beat up Nash, and I doubt Paul was especially eager to forgive and forget.

Fuck Heyman. Why did anyone expect Mike Awesome to kill himself nightly working bingo halls and dilapitated civic centers for bullshit money (if any). WCW offered a professional enviornment, television exposure, solid schedule and guaranteed money (Paul had trouble paying people, remember). Joining WCW allowed him to ascend in his profession.

Romanticizing ECW may be great for fans, but I like to get paid when I go to work.

Oh yeah, the Lava Lamp Lounge kicked ass!

I don't think anyone would argue Awesome's right to want to leave ECW. It is the way that Awesome chose to leave that was screwed up. Just up and leave, without notice, and possibly taking the ECW title with him? That is simply unprofessional.

What Awesome should've done is given Heyman two weeks notice. Said, "Look, Paul, I have an offer from WCW, I am going to go there. They can afford to pay me, I won't have to take as many risks, and it'll be better for my career."

Paul would've shaken Mike's hand, wished him luck, and set up a great match where Awesome could do the professional thing and drop the ECW title to Dreamer or Credible.

I agree with you, Miguelito, about Awesome, and I'm speaking as a WCW fan. When Mike Awesome first arrived on the WCW scene (challenging Kevin Nash) I didn't know who he was, other than the fact that he was the ECW World Champion. When I found out the circumstances of his departure I lost respect for him very quickly. Although... I thought his Career Killer gimmick was awesome. Everything else following his Career Killer gimmick was WrestleCrap material (and I think some of it actually is WrestleCrap).

Stasiak and Horace Hogan released? Can't say I'll miss 'em. Although Stasiak (wrestling under only his last name) has been a pretty good performer in my EWR 1.4 slot, as a member of The Flock in WWE.
