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.
I always thought wrestling was better live to an extent. I was a huge ECW mark when it showed up here in Canada in 99 on TNN and PPV (before that, you had to do the ol' rabbit ears trick to get Hardcore TV from Buffalo), and the Tv was good.
