Pretty sure ol’ Phil is just working everyone here.
I will admit that I have never really followed TNA, so I am only somewhat aware of certain matches that have been held. This is one from the early days back in 2003 for the X Division title.
During the Jerry Lawler incident on Raw last Monday, fans had a chance to see an actual human side to Michael Cole and share in his obvious worry and concern. For the first time I can think of, people only have GOOD things to say about MIchael Cole. Do you think that this could be the golden opportunity for creative to have him him tone down on the more obnoxious parts of his character and turn him into someone the fans can respect and appreciate? I know it sounds crazy, but if ever there was a time to do it, this is it.
Can you please explain to me why Joe Hennig uses the name Michael McGuillicutty? On the surface it reeks of Vince’s typical obsession with wanting to create everything himself. However, he’s had no problem with Orton, Dibiase, and Tamina (who in case you don’t know is the daughter of Jimmy Snuka).
The only thing that makes any sense to me is that they didn’t want to give him the expectations of the Mr. Perfect legacy with the Hennig name, but everyone knows, so even that doesn’t fly.
It is one of those pet peeves of mine to the point I can’t even enjoy him because IMO he shoulda said “F off Vince, I’m using the family name”.
Always enjoy a good mailbag, and would appreciate your opinion on something that has been bothering me for a while. Just what is the deal with Michael Hayes?
I appreciate the impact the Freebirds made, and he obviously must have a decent mind for the business given his career backstage and in the ring, but his ring-work came across as being centred around stalling and doing a crap moonwalk.
Yet he appears to be very well respected, and has ascended through the WWE from road agent to head writer. So is he a genius? Opportunist? Overrated?
Keep up the good work!
He's a smart guy, but a shit worker. And a bit of a racist, apparently. But yeah, he's always had a great mind for the business and he's a funny guy. There's lots of guys like that, who were smart enough to make a good living for themselves but really found their calling as agents or writers (like BIG JOHNNY) because they can act as a muse for someone with better in-ring talent than them. And then I guess you have the opposite like Ricky Steamboat, where he can still work circles around the guys he's supposed to be training.
