We recently had a â€˜greatâ€™ departure from the WWE. At the risk of sounding mean, I am so glad that The Great Khali is no longer with the company. I am not sure if he went to one of the developmental organizations or not. I can only hope that is not the case. Some people just donâ€™t get it, and I believe Khali is one of those people.
Perhaps Vince McMahon thought he was bringing fans the second coming of Andre the Giant. That is just an uneducated guess I admit, and I hope that never entered his mind. What an insult to Andre that would be. I know he has always believed that bigger is better, but this was ridiculous. It was said around the back that this man was a danger due to his ineptness. I know that McMahon is stubborn, but was he waiting until someone was hurt to see that maybe, just maybe, Khali had no talent?
To make matters worse, Vince apparently felt that this huge man would be a great compliment for The Undertaker. HUH? Here you have someone who has done nothing but support, and in some instances carry, this company. Did he feel â€˜Taker was strong enough in his abilities to take care of Khali and make him strong? There is not a wrestler on the roster that could have made this man look good.
And just where does this leave Daivari? This poor guy hasnâ€™t been put in any decent situations, and I fear that will continue. That is of course, if he doesnâ€™t get his walking papers sometime soon. That is another thing that McMahon seems to do. He puts many of his talent in really awkward and/or embarrassing story lines and then when things fall apart, often through no fault of the wrestlers involved, it is blamed on them. Funny, Iâ€™ve learned that there is such a thing as responsibility, and I havenâ€™t seen Vince taking any for a long time now.
Now, if you want to talk about a big man with a lot of potential, letâ€™s look at Sylvester Terkay. Successful in amateur wrestling before becoming a professional in the world of sports entertainment, Terkay has also been involved in Mixed Martial Arts, and did a good job there, too. For my money, the 6â€6â€ Terkay has all the right stuff to deserve the push, and with a slot open after the departure of Khali the time is now.
I am also a big fan of Ken Kennedy and Vito. I find these two very entertaining and I really enjoy both their matches and the different personas they present. These are two men who, while maybe not looked at as your major players, more than do their job in entertaining the fans. I hope they are appreciated.
But whether or not he will admit it, McMahon has to look over his shoulder. He might be getting a bit senile, but he still isnâ€™t a stupid man. Whether you want to believe it or not, TNA is nipping at the heels of the WWE. While roster changes between the two companies might be fast and furious at times, there is one big difference. TNA will use their talent, while the WWE will take as many as they can and then either smother them until dead or simply forget they are there at all. I know money talks â€“ why else would Sabu leave TNA? Did he really believe that he would be given as many chances to shine once he made the move? The proof is in the matches he must now endure with The Big Show. Hmm, yeah, that was a good choice.
I can only hope that Vince begins to once again give some thought to who he wants to court to bring into the fold. He used to be so good at that, and maybe he will be able to get that ability back.
