Xenocide - 2011-07-29 I remember being a kid and eagerly awaiting the epic showdown between the two ex-Rockers, which never came. The whole plotline was aborted and Jannety faded into obscurity while Micheals became a star. Maybe because the WWF realized that Marty Jannety has all the stage presence of a dead sea cucumber and he really did need Sean Micheals to make him look good.
All my stars for "what an act of cowardism!"
MongoMcMichael - 2011-07-29 Marty Janetty and Shawn Michaels won Pro Wrestling Illustrated's Match of the Year award in 1993. The feud was okay, but it wasn't really sustainable with Marty Janetty's marble-mumble-mouthed promos.
Can we please fix the wrestler's names in the tags?

zerobackup - 2011-07-29 Beefcake's mullet starts halfway down the back of his neck, classy.
sosage - 2011-07-29 I was a Beefcake fan as a kid. Being from my hometown (not really, but the character "hailed" from SF) + sleeper hold ender + cutting opponent's hair seemed so fucking bad ass when I was 8-10. Then he mysteriously disappeared.
twinkieafternoon - 2011-07-30 Brutus broke his face in a parasailing accident. WWE gave him a crazy mask and tried to play him as a sympathetic character, but it didn't take. Then, when Hogan left for WCW, Beefcake--one of Hogan's most faithful lackeys and buddies--left with him. While in WCW, he played a litany of terrible characters that all had the chance to lose to Hogan a lot.
