I've got no friends left who have long hair, and I'm pretty much the only one left with any length to my hair, though it's hardly what you would call "long."
What I'm wondering is: would this give a kind of generic look to the majority of WWE wrestlers right now and take away a lot of their individuality? Kurt Angle, Flair, Benoit and Undertaker have short; HHH, RVD, Jericho and Booker T have long(er). There's a definite variety of appearance there that IMHO is beneficial to the image of each wrestler.
I'd imagine that it's only for the guys whose hair isn't really part of who they are, eg. Test, Christian, Matt Hardy. I don't think they'd expect Booker to cut off his dreads or Kane to start sporting a shorn scalp.

You see this? You see how my body's glowing like that? Yeah... a lot of people can't do that. Come get some of this glowing. Oh, okay, you. You want some. You want some of the glowing. Look, man... your soul... I'm going to totally floss with it and chew on your spirit. I read that somewhere. But I'll do it.
I'm intrigued as to how Triple H and Kevin Nash will react to this? We all know WWE doesn't give a rat's ass what guys like Chris Jericho, Test, and Christian think, but would they actually force PoocHHHie and his friend to cut their hair?
This could be VERY interesting.
"That's right! You suckas better FIND somewhere to run! 'cause it's me - Booker T - not only am I the Scorpion King, but I'm the five-time WCW Champion - and I got a sword, too! Now can U dig THAT - SUCKAAAAAS"
I APPROVE of long hair, dammit. Especially on men. If even WRESTLERS get crewcuts, what am I going to do? *sob* MM
You and me both...if all the guys shave it off, we can mourn together.
Seriously, though, I thought the point of the guys having long hair was so they could easily talk to each other in the ring without being observed?
Guys, guys, guys, and gals too. I think you are going way overboard here. I don't think the WWE is going around telling everyone to cut their hair. Just Test and Christian. Why you ask? Because the Americans are jealous of us Canadian's hairstyles! So they are forcing us to cut it or fire us all! America Sucks!
Ok ok, seriously, I think it's only Test and Christian who they are asking to cut their hair for the UnAmericans angle. I think we talked about this is another thread one time, but all the Americans are completely different and diverse, and all the Canadians look all the same. I think that them wanting Christian and Test to cut their hair is just an attempt to make them look more alike, especially since they specifically say "like Lance Storm's hair". It's just an attempt to make them all look boring and bland like Lance. Now if they could only teach Test to wrestle like Lance too.
Why not just ask Lance to grow his hair out? His current haircut is creepy, it'd probably do him some good.
But yes, I understand that it's significantly easier to have Test and Christian cut theirs. The way we'll be able to tell if WWE really wants this hair change is by watching Ross dog the guys in the Ross Report. "Test and Christian continue to have problems with their hair length. Though the two have worked hard and lost several inches lately, a stronger dedication and hair ethic is needed to compete at this level. This ain't Kabuki."
NO! NO NO NO!!!!!!! They can't cut their hair! Hair is beautiful! And pretty much the only place I can catch men with long hair these days is the WWE! Christian wouldn't look right with short hair!

I think he is probably contracted to do x number of house shows over his entire contract. This means WWE decided to have him do none whilst he was not champion, 'saving' them up for when he was champion so the champion was always on the road.
