Well, apparently, he's done playing softball and wants one more run at the WWE.

While the article is old apparently Johnny Ace did go out and scout him. Basically the bottom line was...if you can pass a drug test we'll take you. (Reported on Between The Ropes radio show this evening) http://www.betweentheropes.com

Looking at that picture from March I really doubt he'd pass anything to get back in the door. Drug related.

Unless he comes in as someone's bodyguard I don't see any reason to bring him back.

Am I a bad person for kinda wanting to see a Sid/Great Khali feud?

Maybe, but that makes me a terrible human being as well. The promos for their matches alone would be tremendous.

He apparently had a great match in Ottawa a couple of weeks ago at the Ottawa Exhibition. it was very much a "Sid's Gonna Kill You!" match, but still good.

My weirdest wrestling memory is a Sid one. Me backstage baby-sitting Sid at the IWS' Fifth Anniversary show "V" (2004)where Sid was going to make his surprise comeback to wrestling after shattering his leg at WCW (Greed?)

Brian the Guppie or Manny or No-Face Joe came backstage and asked me where Sid was:

"He's in the bathroom painting the midget."

"Oh, OK. Keep up the good work Mike."


****

Patrick Lono just told me on Tuesday that when he submitted his report of that night, Meltzer woke him up at 1 am to fact check, because he didn't believe that it had actually happened.

Sid's match with Johnny Devine was incredible.

Sid got THE pop of the night (some kids of a friend of mine announced Sid is cool, but they do not know him).

Devine spent maybe 3 minutes working over the bad ankle/leg, before Sid chokeslammed him and powerbombed him twice.

I got to bump fists with him during his post match walk around the ring. He's a sweaty dude!

YOU SIR ARE THE MAN!

I would break my piggy bank right down the middle to see him squash John Cena.

Where's the part where the WWE said NO to Sid?

I, for one, would love to see Sid Vicious have one last run in the WWE. No Sycho Sid, no Sid Justice, no "Just Sid"...Sid Vicious.



I've seen 14 movies so far this year: Because I Said So - (2*); Borat - (5*); Children Of Men - (4*); Die Hard 4 - (5*); Evan Almighty - (3.5*); Fantastic Four 2 - (4.5*); Hairspray - (5*); Harry Potter 5 - (4*); Knocked Up - (4*); The Last Mimsy - (4*); Mr. Brooks - (4*); Shrek The Third - (3*); Spiderman 3 - (3.5*); Transformers - (2*)

You know, I kept shaking my head furiously until that last part. I'd LOVE to see everyone refer to him as "Just Sid".

Of course, if I HAD to sit through one last Sid run, it'd be worth it just for the comedy value. I still remember one of his classic Nitro promos.

"You see, Nash, I am twice the man that you are...and I have half the brain that you do!"

For the newer W's, yes that was a REAL quote! Seriously!

Just to help It's False out here.......here it is.

Watch the whole thing. The Outsiders were really great at promos! Damn I miss those days (Goldberg was on the verge of breaking through in this clip). I actually set up two TV's (one on top of the other) to watch wwF and WCW at the same time during this era....Playing Sega TV Golf tourneys with friends on the third TV. Fun, pure fun.

Sid was great during his time. He was never one of my fav's though (the no-sell to Hogans leg drop doesn't help him). If he returned, IMO it would be like when Sable returned.."wow look whose back, how did that happen...can I see some wrestling now?" With that said, I wouldn't buy the skin mag like I did for Sable/Tori..

*sigh* You actually have to listen to the radio show. They have a podcast up if you want to listen to it at your own leisure.

I would dig a return of Sid. Sure he sucked something terrible in the ring, but for some reason he always entertained me. If some giant freak needs to return, I'm voting for the Ruler of the Squirrels.

In all fairness, Sid would be more entertaining than about 40% of the current WWE roster. I'm sure on a short-term basis he would make a great heel opponent for C.M. Punk, no?

More entertaining than Big Daddy V? You're crazy!

To be honest, I wouldn't get excited about it but I also don't think it'd be the worst idea either. He'd get a good nostalgia pop from the people that either didn't watch enough of him or don't remember him well enough to recall how atrocious he could be at times.

It would be particularly effective if it was later days ECW Sid - who comes in, gets a pop, powerbombs somebody, and THAT'S IT.

As someone who ruled the world, I'd think Sid wouldn't NEED a wrestler's paycheck.

But yes, I would also buy a pay-per-view where (in the pre-match promo, or in a mid-match aside to the camera) he referred to himself as the "master" and Cena as the "learner."
