Would someone please explain what the novelty of Chuck and Billy is?

OK, so I guess they're supposed to be ambiguously gay . . . but is this supposed to be funny? Is this supposed to make them heels? Is this angle going somewhere, or is this just a gimmick that will magically disappear?

I think they are going with the whole "entertaining" thing here. Which I think Billy and Chuck are. To most people they are just "irritating" which is what the WWF wants. It sure seems to be working.

Yeah, maybe "irritating" is the point . . . I'm just not sure that adding more irritating people and segments to the WWF is the best thing right now -- after all, we get enough Stephanie as it is.

Sorry if this question has been asked before . . . I just reached my breaking point last night during Smackdown and just had to know if anyone was finding it entertaining.

In my opinion, I see Scotty and Albert acting more gay then our supposedly gay duo. I mean, now Scotty gets a piggyback ride on Albert while he does his avalanche in the corner> Plus, all the stuff to the ring and back.

I still retain that in the beginning the WWF was probably just headed for a "Dude, Where's My Car" vibe with a few gay jokes put in. Once the gay thing took off, they've ran with that. That's just how it works.

Well, I think the whole B&C thing would be great if they would just go all out with it. They are doing the angle, but holding back just enough that people don't think they are actually gay. The thing about Lodi and Lenny was that they went all out with it. It was so funny and crass that it caught on. B&C will never go to that level. That is the problem that makes the characters not work to it's fullest extent.

I like it because they're going slow before they go all out and it gets boring.

And the award for gimmick of the year goes to... Chuck and Billy.

Seriously though, Chuck and Billy get about as much discussion on here as the nWo does, so the WWF must be doing something right with C&B.

They should bring back the 'Ass Man' theme song for B&C.

Seriously though, I've never quite understood why people like Billy Gunn so much. Everytime I see him at house shows or dark matches he get HUGE pops. It's just kinda weird because he's not that great of a wrestler or entertainer. However, I have to admit that I bought an "Ass Man' shirt back in the day. It was just for comedy purposes, really!

I'd say his popularity has always been a combination of his physique (hey, Luger always got good pops despite being bland and unspectacular in the ring and on the mic too), and some lingering bits of how over he used to be during his New Age Outlaws days.

Of course, now that he's a heel, that's out the window.



No matter how bad things may get, just imagine what would happen if Vince Russo was booking again, and you will feel better.

They amuse me. The posedown was what sold me on the angle--it worked for me because they found a way to get the gimmick over in the ring. I thought it was great. So from a wrestling standpoint, I think they're better than Lenny and Lodi because those guys never really did their gimmick outside of television segments, as far as I can remember.
I could be wrong, though.

Also, Chuck and Billy's physiques fit the stereotype a lot better.

    I can't speak for Billy, but I think I've at least figured out the deal with Chuck.
