I'd almost forgot that he had a mini-feud with the Bossman for the title then, what were they thinking?
From some of the comments he's made on DVDs, I get a feeling he wasn't laughing, but felt he deserved that. On the "Monday Night Wars" DVD, he had some comment about feeling like the WWF signing him was one of the big reasons they won the war. Something along those lines. Are you fucking kidding me? The guy thinks he's on Rock's / Austin's level, it seems.
If the whole wrestling 'world' could have looked forward a year and saw that Rikishi was the one who ran over Austin, I believe every single person would say "WHAT THE FUCK", Rikishi included.
