IRS' Cageside Evaluation

What you loved:

  1. Sons - You may know them: Bray Wyatt and Bo Dallas.
  2. Tag Team - Had two fantastic teams with Barry Windham and Ted DiBiase. He was good in a group, whether it was a tag team or stable.
  3. IRS Gimmick - A gimmick that probably should have bombed, Mike got as much out of a "taxman" gimmick as he could.
  4. Varsity Club - Via Wiki: "The Varsity Club was formed in the NWA's Jim Crockett Promotions by Kevin Sullivan when he recruited the University of Michigan's Rick Steiner and Syracuse University's Mike Rotunda in late 1987. The group would wear the Letterman jackets of their respective Alma mater and brag about their superiority to other wrestlers on the roster because of their amateur wrestling background."

Best comment comes via Uncle Lake:

"Faces using his tie to their advantage, yet, he still wore the damn tie every time he stepped in the ring."


What you loathed:

  1. WCW Run - One of our most used loathes returns! In WCW, he was Mr. Wallstreet, but it just didn't fit the company. Oh they also put him in the nWo, because reasons.
  2. Ceiling - You can only go so high with the gimmicks that he was given. World champ was just not in his future.
  3. Mixed Bag - A few of you didn't like his promos, some didn't like his in-ring work, and some of you just didn't IRS, period.

Best comment comes via Arai:

"Where the fuck do I start? The forms are so fucking complicated you’d need five law and accounting degrees to understand them, you spend hours on the fucking phone because they put you on hold with that fucking annoying music going around and around, then they refer you to sixty different departments and then, finally, after hours of wading through their bullshit, they tell you they can’t help and you need to ring an entirely different place!

*blinks * Wait. I’m Australian. We don’t even have the IRS here. What am I even talking about… oh, never mind. *walks off *"

On to the poll! With 137 votes, IRS' average score is 3.7

Thanks, Cagesiders! Tomorrow is recap day with updated poll scores and the best comments from the past two weeks.
