People I look forward to seeing on my TV some day soon:
Kanyon: He's hurt now, but he's a great wrestler, he's fucking hilarious, what else do you need? I miss him, as I would have to put him right up there with Angle as my favorite wrestlers.
There was an awesome match on the OVW holiday clip show this past week between Kanyon and "Mr. Wrestling" Nick Dinsmore. Kanyon used everything in his aresenal to no avail, so he got frustrated after about 10 mins of action and tried to use his then U.S. Title, but it backfired and Dinsmore got the win in a non-title match.
Last week's clip show detailed the OVW tag-team division, and this one detailed WWF appearances in OVW over the last year. All-new action hopefully including D'Lo and Val Venis this week tho.
i don't know about you all, but when i saw Angle start to use the ankle-lock, i was waiting for Shamrock do a run-in and tear him a new one...
sigh, hasn't happened yet...
I seem to recall reading a report of either WWF mag or Raw mag where they implied that Shamrock may be coming back in 2002 to challenge Angle. It was in one of their "what's up in the New Year" articles, I think, with some jokes as well as some hints. You may still see it.
Dammit I want Meng back on my tv screen! Not as Haku either. I want him as Meng, with his giant afro, his funky pants, his cool dancing before applying the best finisher in wrestling history, the Tongan Death Grip. I killed a man with that move once. Really....i swear it.
Bring back Gangrel and definately Slick!! I'd say bring back Macho Man but I really don't know how in shape he is. I can settle for The Genius though! Those poems rocked. Especially his poem against The Artist Formerly Known as Zodiak at WM6

Rikishi/Venis feud was a dandy until it just stopped. It was one of the more violent midcard feuds I've seen in the WWF in sometime. It would have been good for both if they either extended it and made it a long time feud. Or kept them as those violent types and moved them on. Val Venis in oldschool all white ruled.
As for who should come back...well my man Tommy Dreamer of course. I always wanted him to be Stone Colds lackey for just a little while.
I'd like to see Shannon Moore. for a little guy, he can really go. I don't know what kind of "superhero" gimmick to give him though, since he would most likely team with Hurricane. I'd also like to see Kimona Wanalya back.

Call me crazy, but I wouldn't hate to see Gangrel back at all. I mean, c'mon! What's a federation without a "vampire" living an "alternate lifestyle"? Eh?! EH?!
I'd also love to see some cruisers come up into the fed, but fat chance of that ever happening and them actually getting some exposure. Shannon Moore, Rey Misterio, and especially CHAVO(!!!). Any of those crazy guys who will kill themselves for my enjoyment every week would be loved by me if they returned.
(Psst, I was STyRoFoaMSToNe on the old board, but nobody would know that since I posted maybe 50 times in total, and most of them were during the EZBoard Royal Rumble. I was the first hardcore champion! YES I WAS.)
I definitely want to see D'Lo and Venis back. Hopefully, the split gives them that opportunity. But, I think we all know my real answer to this question. 2 more months until I get to see him on Jakked and Heat every week! WHOOOOOO! (damn WWF)
I figured I'd go ahead and start complaining about them not pushing him ahead of time, so maybe I won't be so angry when it actually happens.
And I think you're fat. So how do you like me now?
Common belief is that "Hulk Hogan's Theme" was only used for a few weeks, before it was replaced with "Real American". About a month after the US Express officially stopped appearing as a team... late 1985 or early 1986.
