FINALLY reactions to rikishi running over austin
Rikishi Did It ! Nobody guessed it or came close . What is with the
racism angle ? Doesn't Vince know about the WCW racism lawsuit ? This
is going to get some Major Heat , I mean real life heat . Did you hear
the pop Hogan recieved when Rikishi said his name ? Rikishi vs Austin
, well i'm not sure of this angle at all . Guess we will have to wait
and see where Vinny Mac takes this . Personally there were so many
other greater angles . Such as :
Shawn Michaels did it for his buddy HHH and because his last match was
with Austin , this makes sense .
Debra did it because > 1.) to have Austin to herself 2.) Austin
made Jarrett , who she managed , leave WWF for WCW so she wanted
Hell even Rock did it to get to the top .
Big Show because he took Austins "spot" that night and won his 1st WWF
Rikishi ? I'm lost on this one . Vince I hope you know what you're
doing , because i'm guessing nobody else does !
rikishi? totally blind sided me, but when you think about it, it does make
sense. i mean, rikishi was new to the WWF at that time, so he knew that his
character would not get main event status. so, in order for his people to
gain the recognition they deserve, he takes out the top guy to make room for
the rock. it makes perfect sense. i dont know about everyone else, but i
find this to be an interesting angle. you dont know what is going to happen
next; will rock become a heel because of this, or will he become more of a
face? this is probably more interesting to me because i am a pacific
islander too, but i think this angle can go far. many different paths can
come out of it. will SCSA be pissed at rikishi, rock, or the both of em?
will the rock get into a fued with austin, or will rikishi mix it up with
SCSA? or will the rock and rikishi battle? i personally think this is very
interesting, and can elevate rikishi into main event status. i also noticed
that rikishi got mixed reactions. this is puzzling to me considering he took
out SCSA, the main man in the WWF. i am still rather shocked at what
happened, and i have no clue where this is going to lead. it is true that
the island people arent exactly known for their WWF titles, but i dont think
its a racism thing. looking out for your people isnt considered racism, but
i can see where people can say it might be. i expect big things out of this,
and you must admit, you never expected this. WWF just got fresh again,
woohoo, i luv it.....
Who the hell gives a damn about an Austin/Rikishi feud? Ok, so chalk
another one up to Vince for surprising the smart marks, but Jesus, this
is the dumbest angle ever. Rikishi gets cheap pops for rubbing his ass
in peoples' faces. He's NOT "main-event" enough to be remotely
interesting against Austin. Bleah.
Still holding out the hope that this is a lame swerve and the real
driver was HBK or someone with frigging main-event caliber.
Where are all you experts at now?
I remember posts such as, "Mick Foley did it", "Billy Gunn did it," Hell, I
even thought Debra did it. Nobody in this whole usenet saw this one coming,
not even all the wrestling websites.
Goes to show you can never figure out the news from the rumour. Now, I read
these posts and everyone is speechless. Especially about the "island boys"
I'm waiting to see someone claim they knew this all along, this came from
left field, big time.
