You know, I already had enough trouble taking this feud very seriously after the infamous “spooky” events of the Royal Rumble earlier that year (which R.D already covered in an induction). Adding Chuck Norris’ hammy acting to the mix doesn’t help matters much.
I can just hear Vince McMahon at the booking meeting for this show…
“Okay, so we have this great Casket Match lined up between The Undertaker And Yokozuna coming up at Survivor Series. It’s the main event. People can’t wait to see The Undertaker get his revenge. But it just needs a little something extra to make it that much more special….”
He snaps his fingers in a moment of pure inspiration!
“I’ve got it! Get me that Kung-Fu… or Karate or whatever-it-is guy Bruce Lee on the line! He’s a real tough guy! We’ll make him the “Special Enforcer” for the match! The kids will love him! We can have him turn heel later and join up with Yokozuna! It’ll make millions!”.
“Um, Mr. McMahon… I’m sorry to have to tell you this, but Bruce Lee passed away just over 20 years ago” a low-level writer says nervously; hoping not to upset his boss.
“What?! Damn it! Well that’s just no excuse… Okay, okay, fine! Hmph… Then get me that ‘Walker, Texas Ranger’ cowboy fellow – you know… the guy with the beard who beats all the bad guys up instead,. I guess he’ll have to do.” he mutters in frustration, shaking his head.
Suddenly, Vince perked up with a smile!
“Is he at least one of those ‘Singing Cowboys’ like Gene Autry? Oh, I loved him when I was a kid!”.
At least, that’s how I’d like to imagine the meeting may have gone…
Until next time, Happy Trails, fellow Crappers!
