In my infinite spare time, I was thinking about the 5 year WWE “Attitude” era. I was also watching an old 90210 on FX and starting comparing the cast of characters to the WWE roster. Sadly, I took the time to make a list of my picks:
Brandon Walsh – The Rock: The cornerstone of the show. Everyone’s favorite good guy. Brenda Walsh – Shawn Michaels: Great performer, but burned too many bridges off-camera that led to an early exit. Dylan McKay – Stone Cold: Brooding loner who suddenly left, then came back late in the series. Kelly Taylor – Kane: Come on, they’re both victims of a fire! Valerie Malone – HHH: Midway arrival (in Brenda’s shadow) that is looking out for #1 and will sleep with anyone to get there. Steve Sanders – Billy Gunn: Goofy blonde guy that’s been around for the duration. Gets saddled with typically lame storylines, but somehow still remains a constant in the group. Andrea Zuckerman – Bret Hart: Annoying know-it-all that left midway through the show. David Silver – X-Pac: Punk-ass tagalong that definitely wore out his welcome with the group. Donna Martin – Stephanie McMahon: Only on the show because her daddy runs things. Nat Bisuccio – Jim Ross: Mentor-ish guy that looks after the gang.
These are just the ones that came to mind. I’m sure there are others.
Yes, I have WAY too much free time…
I've missed only 3 WWE PPV's since 1995. Why don't girls like me?
Does that mean Valerie was sleeping with Donna in order to gain power? Explains why it took Donna so long to put out. In addition, did this forbidden Sapphic love extend back to the time they were on Saved by the Bell. Yes, I have to much time to.
Thank you Mr. Wanz for the check, now you get an AWA World Title Reign. But be careful, my boy Greg is a heat machine.
Couldn't agree with you more, Mark. I was a HUGE fan (and spent the last two and a half seasons in utter denial about the show's quality) -- even naming my pets after the lead characters -- and it's been a painful couple of years for me.
