The sad thing is that if they could have found a Papa Shango that could work (Butch Reed? Maybe even Ron Simmons?) and Taker was able to put on his post 1996 working boots, this could have been a feud of the decade on the two gimmicks colliding. Of course, it doesn't matter because it was the Godfather in the gimmick.

Shango probably deserved the Most Embarrassing Wrestler Observer award on principle, and I know he was sort of the final straw for a lot of longtime fans. And I know Charles Wright may have never had a good match in his entire career. But dammit, I marked out when jobbers got set on fire and ooze started coming out of people's bodies.

How anyone could call this even remotely sinister compared to Taker and past wildmen like Kamala is beyond me. Everything about this screamed "CARTOON!" Maybe it's just the way Wright played it, because they don't get any more cartoonish than Taker on paper, and look what Calloway did with him.

 

I don't recall ever seeing Shango wrestle. From what I've heard here and in other places, maybe that's a good thing.
