It was supposed to just write him off of tv for good. That's it. No who done it or anything of the sort.

I've heard that, too, but I don't believe it for a second. Maybe he hadn't told anyone about it yet, but Vince McMahon definitely had a plan for how he would get his character back on TV.

Re: WOAT Angles/Moments Draft Thread

Booker T and Big T Feud Over the Rights to the Letter "T."

I am going to attempt to give this angle the writeup it deserves.



Booker T. was one of the few bright spots of WCW 2000, but like most things you enjoyed, WCW found a way to make them suck. Essentially this whole angle began with Stevie Ray vignettes and promos claiming Booker T. forgot where he came from. Stevie argued that all of Booker's success had gotten to his head, and changed who he was. Naturally this would lead to a match between the two. It was during this match where this angle was taken from a standard wrestling angle, to one that would go down as one of the dumbest storylines in wrestling history, because this man did a run-in.



Big-T (formerly Ahmed Johnson) runs-in to help Stevie Ray, and Harlem Heat 2000 is formed. They bring on their manager J Biggs (formerly Clarence Mason). J Biggs tells Booker T. that he cannot use his entrance music because that is owned by Harlem Heat, and that he cannot use the letter "T." because that is also owned by Harlem Heat. You can hear that here:

http://www.wrestlecrap.com/nomoret.mp3

Biggs then goes down to confront Booker in the ring, Booker of course attacks him, and hits him with an atomic drop:



Which for some reason resulted in Biggs needing a neck-brace:



Anyway, this leads to a match where Booker faces Big T for the rights to the letter "T" at Superbrawl. During the match Booker is getting ready to win, when there is a run-in by:



Cassius, some no-name that literally no one knew. Big T. would win the match and gain the sole rights to the letter "T." while the "Scales of Justice" are formed in the process:



Booker would wrestle as just Booker for 2 months until he changed his gimmick and name to GI Bro:



Cliffs:

WCW 2000 is one hell of a drug.

Solid pick, I have not seen that angle but was aware of it and it's definitely mind-numbingly stupid. I'm sure you know you're up for another pick.

Little People's Court



This segment had it all. Stupid jokes, offensive material, old guys trying to be cool, unrealistic premise, and of course product-shilling. No writeup I do can ever express just how horribly unfunny and terrible this segment is. Please do yourself a favor and check it out:

That was 24 minutes of an abortion. My ****ing god. Every one of them, including HBK, Horny, HHH, Big Show, Jericho, Vince, Dunn, and any writers, should be ****ing fired. Not for the offensiveness of it but because they thought it would constitute even remotely interesting tv. This brought back more bad memories with the ****ing weekly guest host. I honestly cannot believe that HHH and HBK went through with this. Just awful.

As someone above mentioned, the write-ups are making this thread. Great work, guys. Loving the draft.

I knew it was bad, but I had forgotten just how awful the old guys PG-era DX reunion was.

Re: WOAT Angles/Moments Draft Thread

Great write ups guys, I think a couple went a bit too early but overall everyone is nailing it.

Battle for the letter T is an awesome pick and completely slipped my mind. Don't think I've thought about it since it actually happened.

Re: WOAT Angles/Moments Draft Thread

Teejay PM'd me and indicated that he probably wouldn't be around at all to pick today, but he didn't explicitly say to skip him, so let's split the difference and give him a four-hour clock for today's purposes only.

In the meantime, eyebooger is up with a regular eight-hour clock and I sent him a message.

Re: WOAT Angles/Moments Draft Thread

Err, clarification: teejay did say to skip him. Can pass along to Halpert after eyebooger goes. Teejay's clock will be reinstated at full 8 hours when he picks again.

Re: WOAT Angles/Moments Draft Thread

Doesn't a guy get to sleep? Sheesh.

Anyway, no big deal because my third choice is still on the board. How have we gotten into the third round without any mention of TNA? Well, I'm going to fix that.

This wasn't long (really only lasting one episode), but sure was awful. It might be the worst match in Raw history.

Re: WOAT Angles/Moments Draft Thread

That was one that I was waiting for someone else to pick simply because I only saw bits and pieces of it and didn't think I could write it up properly. It's certainly a worthy pick here.

Same. It's a very deserving pick, but I didn't know enough about it to do a proper write up.

That's a terrific pick. I hadn't heard of it, but reading the writeups I saw while doing research for this, I couldn't believe this could ever make TV, even on LolTNA.

WOAT Angles/Moments Draft Thread

What happens when you send out a guy who is abusing drugs to main event your pay per view you ask?

https://youtu.be/8uTCHS8KHdE


According to reports, the main event was cut short over backstage concern over Jeff Hardy's condition.[10] Referee Brian Hebner threw an "X" sign during Sting's entrance to the ring. Following an audible from Eric Bischoff, Sting forcefully pinned Hardy and upon exiting responded to fans outcry at the result by saying "I agree, I agree ". TNA later apologized to its fans for the pay-per-view "falling short of a standard" and offered six months of free access to the TNAondemand.com library to anyone who bought the event.[11][12] As a result of everything that unfolded at Victory Road, Jeff Hardy was subsequently sent home from the Impact! tapings the following week, and written out of the next month of TNA programming. It was later reported that Hardy was considered "fine" throughout the day, but moments before his match, he was deemed as unable to compete.[13] Hardy was abusing drugs and alcohol, and completed a 120-day rehab during his time away from TNA.[14]

On the September 8 edition of Impact Wrestling, Hardy made his return to TNA, and acknowledged that he had "hit rock bottom at Victory Road", and was on the road to recovery, before asking the fans for "one more shot". Jeff Hardy made his return to TNA full-time by the end of September 2011.
