If it came across in my original post in this thread as if i were defending the video in any way then negative-kudos to me. Im just trying to point out any good that can come of this fiasco. And one thought came to mind-- thank god Eddie wasnt in that video.
Originally posted by albert44Quick thought-- I wonder how different everyone's reaction would have been to the "corpse video" if Jericho, Ben Wah, or (gasp) Eddie had been in it instead of Crips.
Had it been Benoit, it would have sucked because I don't think Benoit's act from last week of just standing their and letting the other person do all the talking with the corpse would work and I damn sure know any skit that goes more than 5 seconds that involves Benoit opening his mouth is going to be the most boring thing on the show.
Eddie may or may not have been entertaining, depending on what the schtick was, though I have visions of the lid to the coffin falling down and knocking him unconscious and then the coffin being taken to the funeral and being buried with Eddie still in it and then when we come back to the arena, Eddie has mysteriously disappeared.
As for Jericho, I could see his repartee with the corpse being even funnier than HHH's. "How you doin'? Oh yeah, that must suck." And, of course, he wouldn't have bothered shaving his goatee, so it would have been even more obvious who it was.
So, in short, as long as it wasn't Benoit in the skit, it probably still would have been funny.
differently done this could've rivaled some of D-X's great skits. Triple H could've come straight in (Acting awful on purpose) lifted the leg over and then seen the camera and acted all angry that he got caught. then for no reason a minister could've come in and "Beaten Up" Kane
Some of my favorite finishes to matches have usually fed into a character. Take, for example, Chris Benoit. The WWE's gone to great lengths since he came to the company in 2000 to establish him as a technical guru without peer (except maybe Kurt Angle).
