It's a shame, given the proper opportunity he really could have been a good main eventer imo.
Earlier I was actually wishing Steph would come back to wrestle just for the good of the Diva's division, because right now it's like everyone's bathroom break, lol. There are some good divas like Natalya, Beth, and Kharma, but I think Kharma is still pregnant. Regardless, 2 or 3 divas can't save a whole division, at least not at this point. The tag teams these days typically bore me as well.
As part of his story he did piss of Johnny Ace. Remember when everyone expect Punk, Cena, Sheamus, and HHH where there. And John said screw off Johnny. Jomo is quite the athletic, I remember back in the days when we was in MNM. I heard the released him as well. Doesn't make much sense to me. Then again he wasn't getting much pushes just mid card matches and matches for the US Title that's about it.
I'm disappointed with what they have been doing with John Morrison. That guy has loads of talent and athletic ability, as well as a good gimmick and charisma, yet he has been doing pretty bad as of late. I thought they released him, but I'm not sure. Apparently because of some thing he said to Trish Stratus.
I do like Zach Ryder, I guess his time of humor just appeals to me xD.
Looking at the roster you have a bunch of old guys that we know have charisma and gimmicks, and are great champs of their time i.e. Taker, HHH, Kevin Nash. Taker is Wrestlemania only outside of cutting a few segments here and there, HHH and Kevin Nash are just Pay Per View Wrestlers. Then there are others like Kane, Big Show, Rey, Mark Henry who are still in action. Then there is Booker who I don't know what the hell they are doing with right now. Feud with Cody is only going to last so long.
The thing is with the WWE talent either they are utilizing it, not showing the up in coming stars are too busy focusing on the same crappy stories each week. Lets hear less Michael Cole and show more stars. Heck they still have Khali on the Roster and I heard he retired.
And if they were doing so good would there really be a need for a Super Show each week for both programs?
That promo didn't really seem like something that would be hinting at someone like Brock, but hopefully he'll be back at the Rumble. It this point I figure it's probably Y2J, but if RVD comes back too that would be absolutely awesome. I totally agree with the wrestlers not having charisma these days. To me, it seems like a lot of them these days don't even really have a gimmick, let alone one that would stick out from the rest. A lot of the guys are really bland these days. Anyone who actually has a good gimmick and/or charisma ends up either being released or just leaving nowadays.
Brock strikes me more returning at the Rumble then having a Promo like this. Really really seems like Jericho too me. I'd love RVD to be referring to himself. I loved how he used to work the crowd with the " Rrrrr Vvvvv Ddddd". I watched a bit of TNA and it just looks like a house show of the WWE. They had a Tag Team match with Jeff and Sting vs. I forgot who, and it was alright but it just doesn't have that feel that the WWE has. Not to say their product is that good. It seems most of the guys these days are just generic and lack a lot of charisma that Stone Cold, Rock, Y2J, Eddie, Kurt, Undertaker(especially as American Badass), The Game, HBK, and all the other Attitude era guys.
So RVD just made a post on his facebook page, saying "Looks like we'll soon see a familiar face in the WWE". In the comments, everyone was buzzing about how Brock just retired from UFC apparently, so maybe it's him that's returning?
Considering the big hype over the end of the world in 2012, similar to 2000, it does seem like quite a possibility. Punk does keep referring to himself as the best in the world, which is what Jericho used to refer to himself as, so a match at Wrestlemania isn't out of the question.
People have been connecting the dots with that. It certainly seems to line up for a Jericho return. Regardless of who it is I'd like to see someone big. And if Golberg entered I'd think he would have a good chance at winning unless Brock F5 him again xD. If Y2J does return I see him going after Randy at some point. Although a lot of people think this is just going to lead up to a match with him vs. CM Punk at Wrestlemania.
Yeah, Punk and Masked Kane are some of the only good ones left. If it was Goldberg I'm sure every decent wrestling fan would crap themselves.
I just saw some pretty good additions to the Y2J theory on youtube:
At the beginning of the video, you hear the sounds? That is from Y2J's 2nd coming promo... SOLVED. Thubs up so people can see!
JTechHD 34 seconds ago"
Year 2012 - Y
2nd - 2
January - J
remember save us y2j?"
I am sure most people are sick of seeing Johhny Ace by now. CM, Kane, and a few others are about the only reason I watch. Even if Jericho returned there still aren't that many Main Eventers like there used to be. Hopefully someone big returns in the Royal Rumble outside of Rey who I think will return then. I don't Batista will be back any time soon, Golberg I'd crap by pants. And Lesnar is stuck on UFC at atm.
I'm totally feeling that it's Shane and Stephanie. There were some pictures I saw of Stephanie training, so maybe it's a McMahon-Helmsley era V2? If you listen to what some of the kids say during the videos, it actually sounds kind of possible. I'm not going to get my hopes up, but hey, speculation.
And yeah, I was so happy when I heard about Kane coming back with the mask. :D
Yeah I heard they kept asking him on his Twitter and he said he was never going back. But he if he "The Prophet" then he would of course not say "Yeah I am coming back..."
On the video people seem to draw comparison to him by the Globe since he always used to say he was king of the world. Then the note book had Christ crossed out on it. I dunno about this being an Undertaker Promo. People are also saying the kids represent Stephanie and Shane reclaiming what is theirs. But Step is already back during the HHH story lines.
So who do you think it is? I know it's not someone like Kurt Angle(which I would love to come back), and I don't think they would hype Christian this much. I can't really think who else is gone. I know Rey is gone but he appeared at the Slammys.
