FINALLY reactions to rikishi running over austin
Quote:
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
revenge .
Hell even Rock did it to get to the top .
Big Show because he took Austins "spot" that night and won his 1st WWF
World title.

Rikishi ? I'm lost on this one . Vince I hope you know what you're
doing , because i'm guessing nobody else does !
Quote:
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.....
Quote:
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.
Quote:
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"
angle.

I'm waiting to see someone claim they knew this all along, this came from
left field, big time.

Re: Attitude Era IWC Usenet Posts Back From The Archives!

As can be seen i actually used some of those old pre IWC opinions as my new sig but it just goes to show that you never realise what you have until its gone because for all the people that would give their right nut to have Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock, Triple H circa 1999-2001, The Undertaker when he worked a proper schedule, Mick Foley and a masked Kane all back and wouldn't say a word. The reality is that in about ten years when John Cena has gone the people who are fans of his now will proclaim the great days of when he was on top just like people do now with old "Attitude Era" wrestlers no longer around.

Another reality is that wrestling is so much better to watch before you hit 21 years old and that being younger makes you enjoy it so much more which is why i can still look back to 1991 as a truly great year in WWE or any point in between The Royal Rumble in 1996 and WrestleMania 17 as the greatest time in WWE history. It isn't just WWE though because i look back on WCW fondly in between 1990 and 1993 with Sting as the main man and then again in between the debut of Scott Hall in 1996 and Sting dropping the World title in 1998 in the same vein because i was at an age where everything seemed so great in the wrestling world.

Re: Attitude Era IWC Usenet Posts Back From The Archives!

It annoys me greatly that people took a great idea (delving into history) and instead of just enjoying the hilarity, everyone has to turn it into a statement about today. Taking it way too far and overthinking things. Just because Rock is loved now doesn't mean Cena will be. After all, how often did Rock or Austin as top face get boo'd by a significant portion of the audience?

Here's the ultimate in hypocritical ironies: The thing I hate most about the IWC is how much they really hate the IWC.

I think its very safe to say that we'll all love John Cena in ten years. Yeah that's pretty much guaranteed. Just like Rock and Austin were hated for only knowing "five moves." It's easy to see the similarities--because there really there!

But the last part of your post is what really needs to be driven home. The IWC (and any hardcore fan community) cannot and never will be pleased as a whole.

Someone will always be there ready to bitch. It's what makes this place so much fun. Your either "with us or your against us" is the mentality of most wrestling critics. No pun intended by the way.

I mean look at this post from earlier today!

Is it just me or has The Rock turned annoying

The man hasn't done shit since WrestleMania... how in the world is he annoying?

I lost all hope for people being satisfied when people were already turning on Punk after the 6/27 promo.

I also love the fact they seem to forget that when that did happen to the Rock they turned him heel back then whereas Cena is a sacred cow of kiddy dollars they are terrified to lose. Also, the WWE back then appealed to their true target audience where they seem more worried about attracting casuals now and alienating the older demographic that has been the back bone of the industry. Though to be fair, everyone is doing that now... it is more important to appeal to the "mainstream" instead of fill a niche. It's ruined a lot of entertainment as a whole.

There are some parallels, but overall the IWC is far more level headed then back then.

Thanks for the wonderful memories Ultimate Warrior... happy you got to be recognised as the legend you are before you went. Rest in peace

I wish this archive went back further than 98. Some of the usenet archives go back to the early 80s!
