Looks like a Hayabusa mask. Seems like it was only worn for the show in Japan.

The article I saw said he would wear it occasionally in NJPW.

Yeah, he did. I just meant that he's unlikely to keep it on WWE tv going forward as it seemed like an homage to his wearing a mask at WK 10.

I kind of like it. I wouldn't mind seeing him wear it at PPVs or something

Re: **WWE Raw/Smackdown Viewing Thread**

GOAT manager. Awesome announcer.

I was thinking about the topic of announcers earlier today. It used to be listening to them was like watching the show with some fun and funny guys; it gave the show a feel of including the viewers.

Now it just feels like the announcers are commercials for the WWE that never stop.

But I digress. I've been watching old Prime Times with Gorilla and Bobby.

That really sucks.

Heaven can now recreate the Savage/Warrior match from WMVII with Elizabeth and Sheri, Joey Marella refereeing and Gorilla/Heenan calling it.

RIP to the GOAT manager and announcer. I was going to post the other day that I drove past a diner by my house called Ham and Eggers. I immediately thought of the Brain and it brought a smile to my face. He'll definitley be missed.

I'm so broken up about this. He's the one I've always wanted to meet to tell him how much he meant to me while I was growing up.

I'm watching all these great clips on YouTube. He really was as great as his modern reputation.

I hope they have some kind of tribute on Raw tomorrow night.

Re: **WWE Raw/Smackdown Viewing Thread**

I'll be watching the opening for a tribute and then promptly turning it off because they're always great with video packages. No 10 bell salute though. Five minutes of silence will suffice.

IIRC the time they offered a Savage tribute they did an opening graphic but didn't air the full video package until mid-show. Might expect a similar situation tomorrow.

I have a similar diner by me. You from the land of Zack Ryder?

RIP Brain/Weasel

Absolute GOAT manager, thanks for the hours of entertainment Bobby.

I hope him and Gino can hang out again now

Bobby RIP deserves his own thread TBH

If Iron Mike Sharpe got one, BH deserves one

There's a RIP Bobby thread under here. Also, now that you mention it, I mentioned doing a Bobby appreciation thread two or three years ago to get it done before he died .

I'm just glad that he got his HOF induction while he could still reasonably talk and still had his quick wit. Like what he said in his own speech, I only wish Monsoon could have been there.
I agreed with LKJ.

Re: **WWE Raw/Smackdown Viewing Thread**

1. Heenan tributes and highlights could and should take all three hours. The man was the best at his craft. Bar none.

2. Alexa Bliss may be the best performer on the roster right now. Good on the mic. Plays the sneaky slimy heel perfectly and sells as well as anyone.

Re: **WWE Raw/Smackdown Viewing Thread**

This match is terrible. The most tilting thing to me is the sound that Byron keeps making. What the **** is he doing? Why does Dunn/Vince think that's a good idea? It adds absolutely nothing.

I wondered if they would bring Cena's anti-Rocky words back at some point once he became a part-timer.
