How great would it be if after this gimmick of getting beaten up by the legends each week, Slater gets some sort of acceptance from them and reverses the trend, wherein some guy is in the ring each week and Slater comes out paying tribute to a past WWE legend? The possibilites are endless, and better yet, the guys you couldn't get nowadays for various reasons (Hulk, Macho, Warrior) would be the most obvious ones to use and would probably get the biggest reaction. Best of all, it lets fans further invest in Slater and by the time the whole thing is done, you've got someone the fans really care about and has had plenty of opportunity to show his personality. Thoughts?
———- Forwarded message —— You've probably already gotten this a million times, but CNN did an article on Doink the Clown's return against Heath "One Man Band" Slater: http://www.cnn.com/2012/07/06/tech/social-media/apparently-this-matters-doink-clown/index.html?iref=allsearch It informs the non-wrestling crowd what a jobber is, and leads to the article's best quote: "[But] if tomorrow I had to get in the ring and you gave me a list of 10,000 wrestlers to choose from, I'm absolutely, positively picking the guy named Barry Horowitz." HA! ———————- Well that's your surreal story of the day.
