I know Daivari is a shit stain irl, but I'm surprised the E hasn't bought him back for a Muslim extremist gimmick as manager or chicken shit heel.

Result of a flapjack and the guy lied about having just been concussed.

One rumour has it that Taker was originally gonna play the gooker. Although that's almost certainly bullshit.

>>883888
Male cheerleaders is a top tier heel gimmick.

Not the Gooker, but a character called "The Eggman"

>Lets make their entrance music basically an overly car alarm

The entire "right to censor" gimmick was just awful.

No one liked them, which i guess you could try to argue made them good heels, but no, seriously, it was legit X-Pac heat.
>>
>>884947

You're just mad because they won in the end.

>>884947
It was only Go-Away Heat if they're booed for existing and not reacted to.

They all look early 2000's as fuck.

How about "holy shit" chants. Haven't they been using "this is awesome" chants now? Seems to me like WWE used plants to get the "awesome" chants to overtake the "holy shit" chants for

Before the watchful eye of the internet, promoters would try just about anything to repackage a wrestler who wasn't getting over.

Too bad that President Rhodes banned space cycles after 9/11. You can see why Champion and Royal went back to the past.

the mortal kombat division was cool as fuck
mortis had a based look and manager.
>>
>>890612
I think Bischoff was probably right to try broadening the base, but he threw way too much money into Glacier and botched the build-up. The way things spun out it kinda looked like nWo was this thing that happened to WCW, but if that was the plan they shouldn't have invested so heavily in Glacier's entrance and costume.

>mortis
Nobody better than Kanyon.

He guested and was immediately thrown out not long ago.
