Last night I read that Robocop came to help someone in WWF or WCW, so could someone tell me about this one. Did he actually do something, or did the guy just stood there. And did he move like the way Robocop was suppose to move? Oh, and why the hell did they bring Robocop? :?:

<font color=8307ff><b>I think he was in WCW at one of the PPVs once a long time ago, or something. I read it somewhere, but I can't remember. I am sure that it was in WCW, though. :y:</font></b>

I'll steal from Sophia from The Golden Girls for a moment:

Picture it: WCW; 1990.

A younger Stinger was feuding with The 4 Horsemen.He needed back-up
(plus he was injured so they needed a non-wrestling angle to keep him on
TV); so he got it in the form of Robocop.

At an event (I think Capitol Combat),The Horsemen threw Sting into a
smaller steel cage (like the ones they use to suspend people above the
ring with to keep them from interfering).SO WHAT HAPPENS NEXT? The
one and only Robocop comes out,uses his super-human strength to pull
the door off of it,and frees Stinger.

That was that.

Hey,this is from the same "big brainers" who decided to use other
fictional figures in angles; like Chuckie :shifty:

I will however defend their decisions to use people like Jay Leno,
Dennis Rodman,Karl Malone,David Arquette,and others....

You will defend their decisions to have Arquette and Leno going over on trained wrestlers? I'd like to hear that one. Will Sasso vs. Bret Hart - That is how it should be.

That was funny. The best part was when he tried to explain it.

Say what you will about Vince's sometimes questionable gimmicks, at least he never brought in movie characters such as Robocop and Chucky like WCW did.

*remembers Zeus from No Holds Barred*

Umm, scratch that.

Oh crap, I forgot about Chucky.

What was the reason for him showing up? I cant remember. Something to do with a wrestler being his friend or something :-\

Sure. I'll explain.

I'm sure that it was so wrong for David Arquette to pin Eric Bischoff,
seeing as how Eric's image should be taken seriously because he is a
great performer and all :roll:

I'm also sure (once again) that it is so wrong for Jay Leno to pin Eric
Bischoff; because as I said above,Eric is a legend in the business,and
his rep should have came first.... :roll:

It was also wrong to have Karl Malone (a trained martial artist) get
into the ring with DDP,Hogan and Dennis Rodman; especially when
he (and Rodman) didn't effect the outcome of the match at all :roll:

Speaking of Rodman,I guess it was wrong for him to also get in the
ring with Luger,Hogan,and The Giant,where once again he didn't do
anything that involved the finish of the match :roll: It was also a
VERY bad thing to have him involved in that above said match with
DDP,Hogan and Malone,where a great amount of entertainment was
provided....FURTHERMORE it was also horrible for Macho Man to get
a victory over Rodman on an international PPV.God forbid that Mach'
get some extra publicity :roll: And finally,ending the discussion on
Dennis Rodman; it was also wrong for Curt Hennig (whose career at
the time was rapidly falling apart) to get to work on an international
level with Dennis Rodman (which,by the way,ended in a no contest).

As far as Will Sasso went,Bret Hart himself said that at first he was
against the whole idea,and didn't want to do it,but after doing the
"match",he thought that it came off as well,and he had fun with it.

Next you will tell me that it was wrong for Bam Bam Bigelow to put
over Lawrence Taylor,or for "Gorgeous George" (not the slut - the
legend) to work with Hollywood actor Burt Lancaster,back in the 50's.

All of these examples gained media attention to pro-wrestling,and
familiarized people with some wrestlers that otherwise they might
not give a crap about (The Giant; Curt Hennig; and a then fairly
rather unknown DDP),and had TV sets tuned in,and PPV buys up.

LT boosted Mania's media attention TREMENDOUSLY.As did Dennis'
appearances with WCW (especially the Malone match).Jay Leno's
appearance did alot for WCW at the time,keeping DDP,Hogan and
WCW either seen or mentioned on his show nearly every night for
weeks at a time,and getting media attention all over the place....

Arquette's appearance hurt no one.His title win didn't effect the
WCW Title (which only goes back to 1991) as much as is claimed.
Was it right for him to win it? No. Was it the best choice possible?
No. But he beat Bischoff - NOT a wrestler - and gained WCW some
extra publicity when newspapers and news broadcasts all around
the world picked up on the story.Besides,if they could put the belt
on Ron Simmons and Goldberg,Arquette isn't that far away....

I will give you the fact that Sasso's appearance was stupid and
it led to nothing but getting Bret Hart definite TV time that week,
and a few TV mentions. :y:

Geez. That sounds like something a n00b would write for a PPV these days. Can't believe it actually happened! LOL

Didn't the WWE use a movie character before? I don't know why but I feel like they have but can't remember who.

Kenny

Oh.... I do remember 2 of them. It was comic relief though.

SummerSlam 94. Leslie Neilson and that Kennedy guy from the Naked Gun moves trying to solve the Undertaker mistery.

It's like World Undesputed Champion traveled back in time and hypnotized the WCW bookers, no?

Anyways, I don't particularly care for celebrities in wrestling, as it usually does make the wrestlers themselves look rather weak, but I can see where KayfabeMan is coming from in the fact that it can bring in more attention from the media. However, Robocop and Chucky were just retarded. Those made Ole Anderson's storylines look like something Orson Welles would write.

Bischoff is a karate world champion so I think he could beat Leno and Arquette.
Rodman and Malone wern't too bad.
Sure, David Arquette got them a story in a newspaper but the rating is one of WCW's lowest ever and was WCWs biggest loss to the WWF. To say that it didn't affect the title is stupid, as it did and thats why the fans tuned off as a b-level actor was the world champion.
Leno was bad as Bischoff had to do that king of late night TV feud and spent up to 1/2 hour presenting a fake TV show during Nitro.

Plus you have to remember how much celebrities cost and how much time it takes for them to be introduced into storylines.

It doesn't matter if Bischoff could beat them or not.Wrestling is a
work,and if it was really about who could beat who,1/2 of the top
guys wouldn't even be wrestling,never mind being stars.

The fans tuned off because Bischoff and Russo (and others) spent
more time arguing with each other and dealing with egos than they
did booking or doing anything that even resembled making sense...

Like you said,Bischoff did the stupid "King Of Latenight TV" angle,&
wasted TV time.Did he have to spend a 1/2 an hour on it? No. Did
he probably even care that he did? No. He was getting paid,he was
on TV,and to him,he ruled the world; that's all that mattered. Don't
think he cared about making WCW #1,he just wanted to **** Vince
and make himself look good.

The time it takes to introduce them isn't such a big deal.They cut
TV time for everything else (like above said stupid angles that go
nowhere - ie. who was driving the Hummer,etc..). As you said th-
ough,the money was the essential thing.

They WASTED money on celebs/musicians like Travis Tritt; Master
P; KISS; Mills Lane and others. If they didn't piss away all of that
on those people,they wouldn't have to worry about the other $$$;
and again,Eric didn't care because:
A - It wasn't his $$$
B - He wanted to do what he wanted to do....
