This is my first blog. I've been reading these blogs for a while and thought i'd try my hand at one. Let me know what you think.
Vince should bring back...........
Shane Douglas. Yeah I said it. Shane "The Franchise" Douglas.
Now before you crucify me with your comments, hear me out.
Now, I'm not talking about bringing him back as a wrestler, i want him back as a manager in sort of a Rick Flair in Evolution role. A role he could use to bring back his stable, THE Triple Threat. For those who don't know, The Triple Threat was a stable made up of Douglas and the late greats, Bam Bam Bigelow and Chris Candido.
Douglas was the first ever ECW champion. He was also one of the best, if not THE best, talkers in ECW. The promo where he threw down the ECW belt is still one of the best after match promos i've ever seen.
He could draw heat like it was no ones business. His feud with Tazz my have been the second best feud of the ECW days. (Right behind Tommy Dreamer and Raven). He had great matches with almost everyone he got in the ring with. He had two classic three way dances with Terry Funk and Sabu. The match from Hardcore Heaven '97 was on WWE Classics this month and still to this day it had me on the edge of my seat.
Recently he was throw out of a WWE show for promoting his recent show. I would use that as an angle for him. he could run in the ring during matches attacking. mid-card to low main event faces on both Raw and Smackdown. Through out the weeks he has destroyed the likes of Kofi Kingston, R- Truth, and Zack Ryder.
He finally gets and interview with Micheal Cole and lets the world in on his plan. he tells everyone that wrestling has gotten soft. Every week the product suffers because Vince is to worried about the fans and "being a star". He says its time for the WWE to get a little more "extreme". He announces that he will seek out three wrestlers, not "superstars", but wrestlers that will bring back the extreme factor into wrestling. Three who best embody what his Triple Threat had, A face( Douglas), a beast (Bigelow), and a superstar who needs no gimmicks (candido).
Through out the weeks we would see him in the back talking to different talent looking for the right mix of talent for his new incarnation of the Triple Threat. I would first have him chose his face of the group and who would be good for that? Dolph Ziggler.
After another match on Raw where Zigzag gets squashed gets squashed by the Brodus clay, i would have him and Vickie in the ring arguing. Along comes Douglas and tells Zig to lose the old lady and become a man. Zig leaves Vickie in the ring as she shrieks and cries.
On the following Smackdown i would have Douglas and Zig approach Mason Ryan and ask him why he still doesn't have a match, why he hasn't held a tittle. Douglas tells him to join them he he could become the beast that he was meant to become. Ryan thinks for a minute and decides to join them.
The next couple of weeks i would have Douglas, Ryan, and Ziggler running wild on both Raw and Smackdown, Defeating people with both clean and dirty wins. After each match i would have Douglas get the mic and use his pipe bomb gift.
Ziggler's win streak would gain him a world tittle match against Sheamus. Sheamus has seen how Ziggler has won his past matches and demands that Ryan and Douglas are barred from ringside which Ziggler reluctantly agrees to. During the course of the match Sheamus brogue kicks Ziggler into the ref and knocks him out. While the checking on the ref a hooded figure jumps out the crowd and grabs Sheamus by the head. he takes his hood and and its Cody Rhodes who hits Sheamus with a Cross Rhodes. Zigzag pins Sheamus for the three count. The PPV ends with Douglas, Ziggler, Ryan, and Rhodes throwing up the Triple Threat hand sign.
