Re: Billy & Chuck

To me, they were a poor man's version of what Lenny & Lodi from WCW could have been.

And this is something I will NEVER understand. GLAAD and all the other Gay Rights Groups HATED Lenny & Lodi and felt it was offensive. I thought they were hilarious and believably gay. But because they stepped in, they had to alter Lenny & Lodi and pretty much kill the gay gimmick.

Then Billy & Chuck show up and, to me, they were like Black Face except for Blacks, it was for Homosexuals (for lack of a better form of verbal expression. Seriously, I had nothing else). They were more along the lines of bad stereotyping in my eyes and just used for bad jokes. You know? Typical WWE humor where they make sex noises behind a door and people go wide eyed and are like "Huh?!". And yet SOMEHOW, that was OK for GLAAD and everybody else, and they even praised WWE for planning the Gay Wedding, even though it was plain as day that it was a joke and a desperate plea for attention. And they even chickened out at the end and didn't go through with it.

Basically, I would love to know what Lenny & Lodi did that was so offensive and what Billy & Chuck did right to make the Gay Support Groups happy.

Re: Billy & Chuck

I liked them. What exactly was so stereotypical about them? To me it didn't come across that they were explicitly gay but more like they were 2 self-obsessed pretty boys who were so into themselves it came across as gay...until they did the whole wedding thing. I thought it was very well done actually and they allowed them to retain their 'toughness' that they had before the gimmick.

Layla, Daffney, Beth Phoenix. What more could a guy want?

Re: Billy & Chuck

They represented the era where WWF's tag teams died for me. 96-2001 you had the Owen and Bulldog, the Outlaws, the Hardys, the Dudleys, E and C, APA and all these cool teams. Then by 2002 Billy and Chuck and 3 minute Warning and all these dull teams arrived on the sense sucking up airtime. Aside from that wedding angle (which was awesome) and Hogan and Edge beating them, I wasnt a fan.

Re: Billy & Chuck

These guys are glorified actors, how is it any different than somebody playing the role of a gay man in a film? The point of the group wasn't to mock people. And Billy and Chuck idn't nix the marriage, the WWE did itself. Story lines change, it was what the WWE felt best.

It turned me on. As a gay male in my twenties, it spoke to me.
