Last time I checked, he was in a feud with Austin. Now he's dropped off the face of the Earth again. What happened? Where is he now?



Imagine Dingbat doing babytalk: philosphosize upon your inner warrriorness...(baby)waahh....(Dingbat)destructivity and iglooitis seem to be deterrring the inner warrior from enveloping you....(baby) waahh....(Dingbat)magnodestructivation will be your salvation...(wife) the baby wants its bottle....(Dingbat) that was the message I was conveying to the greatness of warriorness in it magnanimous omnipotent hemotoma.

I thought he had gone down to OVW to either train younger wrestlers or to die. Regardless of where he went, lets all hope and pray he stays there.

Training in OVW? Gee, and we wonder why 3MW is so great.

Well, I'd say not to quote me on that one but it appears to be too late. Although the sloppiness factor does seem to point in his general direction.

I think he's semi-retired these days. He'll wrestle when the WWE has nothing else better to do but screw up my viewing pleasure, kinda like Sgt. Slaughter. But as of his position with the WWE now, I believe he's a road agent these days.

Ahhhh, Big Bossman. He harkens me back to the old days of Delphi, before the gayness. When there was Jenks, and the old RS.com board. Where Rubio posted Bossman stories and was mocked.



From the infamous Wrestleline SS interview:

DTD: If you were to make changes in WCW, if you were in charge and not Ric Flair, what would they be?

SS: I'd get rid of all the old guys, and push the talent that has waited to get the push. The things they are doing, it's back in the 1980s. It's just bad, man. Flair doesn't even deserve to be on the show. You've got to get rid of all the old guys. Like what Vince did, they started pushing guys. Nobody knew who The Rock was 2 years ago. He made The Rock. Now The Rock just did Saturday Night Live. You've got to start with the young talent, talent people can relate to. Who are we trying to relate to if we've got a 50 year old man out there? Are we trying to relate, so a 50 year people and above will go out and buy a f*cking little toy? That ain't gonna happen. It's a f*cking joke.

Does it remind you of any show in particular?

I believe he`s hosting RAW at the World on Monday, and mostly being a trainer in OVW?

Sadly, he`s not doing SlamCam commercials and telling me three times a night that it`s "AWESOME!"

I believe he's running a thriving briefcase-lifting business, with a little coffin-towing on the side. Future plans may involve opening up a primo canine cuisine restaurant in Southeast Asia.

Damn! I thought if we didn't bring him up again, we'd forget all about him! Way to go! Now he'll probably be back on TV in a week joining the Heyman family stable.

I'm surprised Brock didn't go to Bossman when he needed the inside track to get to Big Show.

After all, who did more to weaken the Big Show more than Bossman? His psychological warfare against him (stealing his father's casket, outing him as a big nasty bastard and selling T-shirts celebrating the fact) was a work of art.

Ok, no it wasn't. I still give Bossman credit for pushing that angle to the heights of absurdity, tho.

Man. Bossman (like Steiner) was really awesome around 10 or so years ago. It's just too bad that time must take it's toll.

He could have driven Brock to the ring in the Bluesmobile and cut a promo on Big Show over the giant loudspeaker tied to the roof.

I've always had a weak spot for the Bossman. Probably because he was always my father's favorite wrestler (my dad used to be a jailer). He even looks kinda like my Dad, which is scary.
Being a Bossman mark is so lonely *sniff*

If he does come back, maybe he'll feud with Booker since he was Booker's tag team partner last year.

I never could understand the hatred for Bossman....I mean for a big fat guy he was pretty mobile. Much, MUCH worse big fat guys floating around than him to pick on.....

Come on- when they do not try and push the Bossman to the moon, stick him in the bottom of the card, and give him a decent story, the Bossman is classic!
Granted you get things like "kennel-in-a-cell" but I will put up with a 15 minutes smoke break on one PPV in exchange for great humor on Raw...
I mean DAMN! His feud with Al Snow was GOLD! And the Show? The Bossman is highly entertaining. He may not be the best ringworker, but he is funny, has an aspect to his character that is lethal (the hand-cuffs, the club, hell the guy trashed Hogan once...)... and it is easy as hell to write for the guy, as long as he is in the right position.
BRING HIM BACK! I miss the Bossman...

I think the John Tenta feud is where the real hatred of Ray started. Anything connected in any manner to the Dungeon of Doom kills anyone. Plus, much like Sid and cockroaches, every time you think he's gone, he mysteriously returns and is somehow in the main event picture.



I want you to know, I agree with everything I've just said.

I always loved watching the Big Bossman. I really used to enjoy that "slide out of the ring and slap the opponent" move while the wrestler was laying on the ropes. I remember when he first turned face in the WWF and lost all kinds of weight.

He was cool in the late-80s, early-90s for sure. He would blow up early in his match and stay winded all night. Mean Gene would catch up with him backstage and Bossman would still be sweaty, shirt torn open:

* Points at camera with nightstick *

"You (puff) better watch out (huff) or you'll be (puff) servin' hard time (wheeze) boi!"

His sidewalk slam looked powerful in the days when you never saw anyone else do sidewalk slams. Also, I really dug his feud with the Mountie which culminated in the Jailhouse match.

The cops asked the Mountie for his finger so they could print it:

"You want the finger?! HERE's THE FINGER!" And the Mountie hung us all the bird...it was the death of my innocence.

i don't know, i always thought that the lionsault was a pretty sweet move.. maybe not "finishing move quality," but still effective looking.
