Yeah... if they were gonna bring back someone who has a horrible workrate and almost zero fan following, why didn't the WWF sign Stevie Ray? At the very least, we could have had a Harlem Heat reunion, instead of bringing back the inimitable Ray Traylor.
Just thinking of Big Bossman brings back some pretty sick angle ideas to the forefront of my mind. Thank God I was watching WCW at the time, instead of the whole Pepper debacle.
Edit: By the way, I like Stevie Ray, even though it seems few other people do. Can you dig that, you Cheez Whiz-suckin' fruit bootie??? LOL!
“You have the look of a man who accepts what he sees because he is expecting to wake up. Ironically, this is not far from the truth.”
HHH has put people over, but I thought it odd that he would lose so soon after his return, and to Booker T. Maybe Jericho or somebody, but not Booker T.
It's brilliant. Booker is still a main-eventer, so losing to him isn't *that* embarassing, but there's no chance that Booker will be able to take advantage of the win to gain heat or otherwise upstage him. In contrast, jobbing to Jericho (even under the screwiest of circumstances) would cement Jericho's "spot," and cause problems for HHH down the road.
Ambition is just an excuse for people who are too stupid to be lazy.
*Nod* Jeremy. Those were my thoughts exactly. It's safe for him to loose to the Book and still keep his status. (and while Book wont get anything from it, it still looks good)
Now as for not jobbing and it being time..WTF? This guy is going to the main event of WMx8.. Why *WOULD* he job to anybody left and right? Let's say he has a match with Christian next, he should beat Christian's ass despite some run in by Storm.. Then, he has a match with Storm and wins that despite aid from Jericho..shit like that..And then he jobs in a tag match or so to Jericho only to build one another for WM. HHH as the invincible unstoppable face who is gonna take the title from that annoying whining cheating little heel that beat Rock & Austin two times each in three ppvs.
"...And I use that to f*ck them some place fairly uncomfortable." "What, like the back of a volkswagen ?" -Mallrats
Chris Jericho will not, will not, will not, will not make it to Wrestlemania with the titles. It's the same formula as last year... Rock got over on Angle and we had Rock/Austin at WM. Same thing this year, and I think the fact that the WWF.com fans voted Triple H/Austin at No Way Out as last year's best match might have made them decide it would be their big money feud this year. You can't have Rock in anything important right now because he's off every 15 minutes reshooting movie scenes, so it's left to those two.
Personally, I'm hoping for a schwerve that turns the fans on Triple H at Wrestlemania. I can't stand the guy not being a heel when he's so good at it. On the other hand, the way things are going with Shrieky McMamm lately, maybe not...
