Yeah, it was an all right match, but not the one he needed to have to introduce the new character and get the crowd excited about his return. Everyone pretty much sat on their hands for this one.
I hated his look. The tattoo was fine, but his hair looked raggedy and his outfit was horrific. I usually don't care about how a wrestler looks, but he's going to have trouble getting over looking like a bum.
Looking like a bum didn't hurt CM Punk's chances of getting over.
You know, WWE did know what they were getting with Piper. But it works both ways, Piper knew what he was getting into when he joined WWE. It's not like it wasn't the same company that he was ripping on NWA-TNA.
