Re: Big money cameos are shit
It can be cheap and easy, sure. I love it whenever an old guy shows up for a guest spot and everybody jizzes their pants like it is the greatest thing to ever happen, like Diesel & Booker showing up at that one Royal Rumble.
They have done a lackluster job of elevating that next generation to the point that most of the big spots at Wrestlemania are routinely being taken by part timers that were big in the past generation. The Rock, Triple H, The Undertaker, Chris Jericho, and now we can throw Brock Lesnar into the mix there while Bret Hart & Shawn Michaels used to be on that list (well Bret just the one time, but still).
However, it is cool if they have a good storyline in place for the guys they are bringing in. Like if they had something totally awesome cooked up for Lesnar, I'd be really cool with using him at Mania this year. Chris Jericho's program with Punk last year was great and I loved having him back for that storyline.
It all depends on how it works out and what you are able to create storyline wise. Though it is kind of sad that most of us have trouble even thinking up things for alot of the younger guys for fantasy cards because we know we have to work in guys like Rock, Taker, HHH, Lesnar, & the like because they have to be, and they are part timers.
