    After months of sitting and watching a load of crap, the old Stone Cold Steve Austin has returned. If you are a wrestling fan, never mind an Austin fan, Last Monday's RAW was a God send. It was so nice to finally see him drop all the singing and hugging and finally kick some choreographed ass! I've been really disappointed with the way his character has evolved over the past few months. It seemed they wanted to turn him into a job man. It was so nice to see him back. What do you all think of his return?

    I never ever really cared for Austin at all. He got on my nerves. But over the last few weeks, Stone Cold has been the funniest thing on TV! He made me laugh enough that I actually began to like him.
    Even though the "old" Stone Cold is back now, his appeal seems to have transfered over as I was cheering when he stunned about 20 WCW/ECW members last night! [​IMG]

    Yeah, I'm not that excited either. Nor am I that excited about The Rock. Frankley, with Foley out of the picture, I find myself a much bigger Kurt Angle fan

    I think the ECW WCW angle has lost all credibility. Austin comes in and stuns about 10 guys. 10 GUYS!!!!!! They were just standing there waiting for SCSA to stun them!! My favs. now are Tajiri (love that humor aspect), Angle (Raven-ECW Rules. Kurt- Uh No ECW does not rule. The WWF rules.) Oh and I also like Stacy Kiebler........

    Count me in as an Angle fan also...luv it when he is showing the meanstreak.
    I was never a big Stone Cold fan and will miss the comedy, but I'm kinda glad he's back. The 'brawl' was pretty pathetic though...IMHO.

    IT's great to see everyone marking out to Austin when he is a face. He is so much better as a heel. I disagree with everyone on this. He was so much more funny over the past few weeks...

    The old Stone Cold isn't really back. He was too friendly with his teammates.

    The WWF needs that one good guy in this Invasion angle, so in that regard, I'm happy that he is a face again. The only beef I have is with how fast he turned. The WWF writers should have built this up a little more and added some suspense by having him disappear all while team WWF gets the snot kicked out of them by the ECWCW faction.
    I wish the hell Vince Russo was still writing for the WWF!

    Russo.....is that sarcasm??? This is the same man who brought us a dog pound match, he made Hawk jump off the Titantron committing suicide, he made David Arquette the WCW champion, he put himself in main events, and he wanted Tom Green to do an angle with the WWF. And you want this man back [​IMG]

    Count me in as another who's not all that excited about the old Austin being back. I was rather bored with the old Austin coming into the ring and defeating anybody who came in his way, but the new cowardly heel character has had me laughing my ass off.

    Hawk commited suicide? What's that aboot????
    Anyway, count me as one of the people glad to see the old Austin back. That whole @$$-kissing Austin was urking me to death. After years of seeing him drinking beer and stunning everything that moved, seeing him and Vince hugging was not something I enjoyed watching. Leave the @$$-kissing/kicking to Angle. He's a pro [​IMG] ...

    Well, the old Austin will nevr really be back-the neck and knees injuries will affect Austin for the rest of his.Physically he isnt capable of the aggressiveness he showed years ago.

    About the old Hawk storyline...
    Wasn't the main point of the angle that he was having personl problems and when he would come to the ring with Animal, he would be drunk? I can't remember exactly, but one episode he climbed the Titontron and then he "fell" off. Of course, he feel behind the screen so you could only see his shadow falling. I can't remember if he was trying to commit suicide or not.

    The one thing I hated about Russo was that he deemphasized the wrestling aspect. As for the storylines, he was a hit and miss. But the good storylines he wrote are much better than what we've seen from the WWF since he left.

    Oh yeah ... I remember that Hawk "fall" now. Man, I miss the Road Warriors ... the old Road Warriors, that is. That whole alcoholic bit was bad. Very bad. That should be the topic of a whole new thread: Bad Angles and Story Lines ...

    I'm smelling an Austin swerve at the Pay-Per-View this Sunday. I have a feeling he is going to turn heel again, this time against the WWF. I want to see the return of the "Stunning One". [​IMG]

    I just wanted to say "I told you so!" [​IMG]
    BTW, did anyone watch the PPV on Sunday. RVD vs. Jeff Hardy was one of the best matches of the year. I am so glad that there are a bunch of ECW guys in WWF now. Now if Vince would only sign Sabu and Bill Alphonso. [​IMG]
