What If Rikishi


Hey Scott,


Going back to Hit-&-Run Rikishi, do you think the Who Hit Austin angle would've worked out better if Austin had sold for Rikishi at No Mercy?  Most people sh*t on the angle now, but if, instead of "I did it for the Rock," Rikishi completely shed his ass gimmick, went total savage, and Austin didn't totally annihilate him at NM, they might have been able to run with that angle for a while.

Oh yeah, so much about that could have worked better.  I think the whole thing ultimately coming down to “HHH did it” was a twist that might have worked better had they just gone there directly instead of swerving with the Rikishi nonsense, too.
