Owen Hart, thanks for the memories. Your family, friends and fans all love and miss ya'.
You said in the Thunder Report:
"Note to WCW: David Flair is way too green and not cut enough to survive in a WCW ring. Not only is he making an ass out of himself but it's making Ric look bad for bringing him in like this. Send Davey to the Power Plant, fast!"
Isn't that kind of the point though? It wouldn't be "crazy Ric Flair having people lay down for his awful son" if David actually had some ability. Having him look awful plays an important part in the angle, IMHO.
On that note, did anyone else besides me laugh their heads off over the David Flair/El Dandy match on Nitro? Flair nearly tripped after he shoulderblocked Dandy and then, the defining moment. Flair stands there with a blank stare on his face as Dandy applies a drop toe-hold, causing Flair to land on his knee. I literally laughed out loud.
I think that David Flair is actually screwing up that figure four on purpose. Think about it, I mean, Ric's trying to get over as a heel, people got pissed off from watching Eric Watts get his push, so, to generate more heel heat, Ric "pushes" his son. On the flip side, David, who doesn't have much experience anyway, gets to TRY to look bad, and seems to be doing a good job of it. Hell, he can't HELP but look bad, but now, he's collecting a paycheck to wrestle like he normally does. He just needs to try not to look like a deer in headlights...
And Savage... he returns as a face, turns heel before you know he's done it, and beats up cruiserweights and midcarders. I may not know if I'm SUPPOSED to like him or not, but I do know that, whatever happens, he'll stay in that same place in my heart that Hogan's in... and that's not saying a whole hell of a lot.
If Thunder gets any worse, you could always just change this to the post Thunder monkeyed movies report!
A workable idea, but I'd get flamed by zoologists for being biased against the other species of primates out there.
I think having Savage go over Rey Mysterio, Jr., Kidman, Konnan, Disco Inferno, and Buff Bagwell is setting up something thet will be pretty sweet. Right now it looks like the summer angle will be: Wolfpac(?) Kevin Nash, Konnan, Disco, Kidman, and Rey vs. Team Madness Macho, DDP, BBB, and Curt Hennig. So, in response to you saying Macho beating them all up was ugly, I think it was also but in a few months stuff like this will set up bigger matches for them. Because of just being with Savage they will be ready for the (at least sub) main event (except for Konnan who will be in the opener at Saturday Night because he has no skill). Good report and I'll read you next week.
Hey Aldo, I bet you can't wait for this match to show up on a future WCW event:
Charles Robinson vs David Flair
If I remember my chemistry and biology classes properly, I believe the Candy Ass contains sucrose, while the Fruit Booty contains fructose.
