I was never a fan of his but he always made me laugh....lol


Most of those are solid tips.

Props to Mike Rotunda for making what could have been a horrible gimmick, should have been horrible, not just work, but become legendary.

He was the best heel job gimmick.

Didn't he do a run with Stone Cold before he was Stone Cold as a part of the Ted DiBiase stable?

Yep!

After Money Inc. dissolved because Ted had to retire due to a back injury, they brought him back as a manager and created the Million Dollar Corporation as his stable.

IRS was the cornerstone member due to his time as DiBiase's tag partner. Other members came and went including Bam Bam Bigelow, Tatanka, 1-2-3 Kid, and Steve Austin as "The Ringmaster."

Oh man Sean Waltman as 1-2-3 kid.

I'll never forget when he was like Razor Ramones understudy and they had this goofy story where he was disguised and his disguised name was just "The Kid" and apparently the audience was not supposed to.know who that was.

He beats Ramone and then reveals his true self and buddy..everyone already knew. Real bad.

I won't lie, I was LOL when I saw the Write Off GIF posted. That was a pretty raw finisher for the time. Especially in a gimmick like that.

IRS actually had another finishing move, "The Audit" which was a Samoan Drop.

Rotunda was such a great athlete and technical wrestler that they took a while to settle on the atomic clothesline for the "Write Off." They had toyed with a couple other moves like the abdominal stretch, and a reverse small package that was to be called "The Loophole."

Fast break sucks without Sexton. NGL

Part of having a good defense is capitalizing on it.


I don't understand,why we have players that don't like to fast break. Collin,Cedi and Okoro are the only players that likes to go on the break...

He was better as Michael Wallstreet....

I don't know. I don't think the computer gimmick works longterm.

I think Varsity Club Rotanda was superior to Wallstreet.

IRS drew more heat and a better pairing with DiBiase.

And there was even talk of a IRS/Undertaker tag-team.

It was earnestly discussed as "Death and Taxes."

Fwiw I don't think Sexton is that good or helps a team win that much.


But his primary value this season was keeping Okoro off the floor.

That's harsh, I know. But that was valuable.

It just feels like we’re one or two capable shot makers short of being an actual good team.

I'd definitely take an efficient 18PPG from Sexton even if it means he goes off the reservation and dribbles into the trees 1-2 times per game.

A damn shame we're saying this about our 5th overall pick drafted a year ago :bigcry:
Okoro is months older than Mobley. Do we really not want him on the floor? There is no reason to believe that he can’t develop as a player on offense.

He looks lost on offense for now to be sure, but that’s one of the benefits from being in the position we are right now, we can play and develop these players.

If you are talking about winning any individual game this year, I’d take the point, but this team has an average age of about 15 yo. And our best years are coming. Development should be the first, second, and third priority.

"We" are not saying that. One guy is saying that.
Actually a lot of people are saying that, I'd guess including the majority here. Even the Cavs as an organization are probably thinking it, there's a reason he was coming off the bench before Sexton went down despite the organization saying they intended to keep starting him. Without Sexton and with Okoro in the lineup is like playing 4 on 5, the other team does not even bother guarding Okoro outside the paint. Maybe he'll eventually become something decent, but right now he's an offensive albatross.
