That's right damnit whether you like it or you don't like it you know deep down inside that X-Pac doesn't suck...but rather X-Pac is cool.
X-Pac was in the original WWF Klique. He was in with the movers and shakers even if the average fan didn't really know it.
X-Pac was in the NWO when it was cool. He was a major part of the original Wolfpac. He often subbed for Hall or Nash under 'Wolfpac Rules' because they were hurt or didn't feel like wrestling.
X-Pac is SO cool he left the NWO before they became watered down and old news to join an up in coming group DX. Not only that, he joined DX on one of the WWF's biggest shows ever. A show that began to turn the tide back in the WWF's favor. He's so cool that he was the first to jump back to the WWF.
Now X-Pac is in line to join up with the new Klique. Just wait and see how cool they are. And you net guys are always saying that X-Pac sucks. Ha, just wait you'll once again see how cool X-Pac really is. Whether you like it or not.
X-Pac was never, E-ever cool. He just always had the cool friends. Look at your post, you are saying he was cool because:
A. He was in the Klique B. He was in NWO C. He was in DX D. He will be in the new Klique
Well wow, is that all it takes? Come on, X-Pac is a talent with absoloutely no charisma. None. That is not cool. That is usually a good trainer, not a wrestler. The fued with Kane was his shining moment, but that was because of Paul Bearer's over the top antic's and Torrie's boobs. Just my opinion. I like X-Pac in the ring when he is motivated or not hurt, but calling him cool is a stretch.
January 4th 1999 - The day WCW injected itself with 10 gallons of Liquid Anthrax...AKA...The day Hogan "Defeated" Nash to win the WCW title in front of 40,000.
X-Pac is definatly one of my favorite wrestlers. Hes just fun to watch. A grainy old style, jerk-ass heel that everyone hates, but who has skill in the ring, and can pull out any match. He just rocks. I wish they would do more with him.
X-Pac is a decent enough wrestler, when he gives a crap. He's got enough talent in the ring to tell a halfway decent story, and enough experience to know what a decent story is.
But he's NOT cool. He's, as has been said before, a hanger-on.
He was the junior member of the Clique, barely above HHH (who was a peripheral member at best, smarks be damned). He got in the NWO because of that, and the fact that he was yet another recognizable WWF face that Bischoff could snag.
He was dumped unceremoniously by Bischoff by Fed-Ex in one of the more infamously bad employee relations moments of WCW's history, and smartly used that to his advantage to give what will likely go down as the only good promo he's ever done.
He was in DX because he was a WCW refugee who was buddies with Shawn Michaels.
Every single brush with the big time he's ever had has been trailing in the wake of someone else, and leeching their heat. It's not a bad thing, necessarily, it's kept his family fed, but X-Pac's never been a top-level guy on his own and he never will be.
And hell, I'm a FAN of the guy.
Kansas-born and deeply ashamed The last living La Parka Marka: He drove the hummer!
X-Pac is not on TV right now as he is still relaxing from his most recent neck injury (probably delaying his return to join Nash and friends)
X-Pac/Syxx was always the obnoxious little a-hole in any stable. He has decent skills but after his many injuries I believe he doesn't wrestle up to the level that he once did or might still be capable of if his heart is in it.
What really ruin it for me though is him still using that damned Broncobuster. And especially that little war dance before it which made Heyman yell 'chief jay strongbow lives!' I was never sure if Paul was mocking X-Pac here or not..
Anyways, X-Pac could be an okay guy. But he is not really cool and not really all that damn good. An average midcarder who is lucky he knows the right people.
Imagine this is some funny signature. Then I will imagine you compliment me on it.
I liked watching Waltman years ago when he was The Lightning Kid in the GWF (?). He was the scrawny little kid pulling off leaps, kicks and moves that were unseen of at that time. Basically, he was the late 80's, early 90's version of RVD and the Hardy's. He was good, motivated and fun to watch. Then his neck accident. He has never really recovered since then, but I do have to say in his defense that the last couple of matches that I saw him in before he re-injured his neck weren't half-bad. He looked somewhat motivated, but he still pulled off that stupid DX move, the broncobuster. Let it rest, buddy. Ever since he became a part of the Kliq, he seems to me to be just a glorified yes man, or the guy that hangs in back yelling, "Yeah, what he said!" "Let me chop my crotch some more to get the point across!" "What's that? You want a piece of me? Let me get my buddys, and you just BRING IT!", as he sits on Nash's shoulder. The only thing worse that X-Pac heat is Bossman heat.
"-He's Touching Me. Batman is touching me. I'm dead, aren't I?-"
I don't give a crap if he's cool or not. CAN HE PUT ON A GOOD MATCH? Why, yes...yes he can. I don't think Dudleys are particularly cool (2 mismatched half brothers who are psychotic and always dress in camoflage...is that cool?) or The Hurrican (the guy thinks he's a superhero) and pretty much everyone else in the WWF. But can they work? Sure can. X-Pac can be lazy, but his last bunch of matches (pretty much with Kidman and Tajiri) seemed to show otherwise. Maybe he was being carried, but with the right opponent, he puts on a good match.
As for changing his look, he did change his tights, he shaved briefly and was wearing his hair tied back. Give him a point for trying.
They gotta bring these back!!!: "talk to the hand because the man don't understand." - "The Crippler" Chris Benoit "...and that is the LAST WORD." - "The Big Nasty" Paul Wight and of course: "Don't hate the playa...HATE THE GAME~!" - WCW World Champion Booker T
The Flair, Arn, Pillman, Benoit version of the Horsemen could have really been something special. Pillman single-handedly made every show entertaining and I have good memories of the birth of the Loose Cannon.
