Thought of the Day: We Need A Good Old Fashioned Masked Man

Not like Kane, but rather…I mean a guy in a mask who runs in and messes with stuff until running off again.  It’s been used for decades and works quite well every time.  There are a bunch of simple stories like that which can do wonders for the booking, but instead we get the same four ideas or so (how many times can we have the corrupt authority figure, the guy wanting RESPECT and turning heel as a result, “tough love” or the automatic rematch clause?  How often do we get anything beyond an offshoot of one of those ideas?) with people caring less and less each time.

 

Use some old ideas and freshen things up a bit.

 

Interesting note: apparently I wrote this up back in May and hit save to draft instead of publish.  I never have been the best tech guy.

    Like the Malenko/Ciclope thing? Ziggler did it a couple of months ago.

    Not a one night thing. I mean something that stretches out for a few weeks before finally getting the reveal. And Aces and 8’s don’t count as they were horrid reveals.

    It’s still the same idea even if its horrible reveals.
