He finally got it right on the third try. The first two--Papa Shango and Kama/Kama Mustafa--were terrible.
No way. Papa Shango was awesome. His feud with Warrior was amazing.
Kama was pretty awesome. Always a huge mark for the MMA fighter gimmick, and Kama worked hard to make the gimmick work.
I'll give you Papa Shango. Now that I think about it, the skull face paint was pretty cool. Kama, though... You can't just have an MMA fighter gimmick if you don't work the MMA fighter style. Plus he had that stupid haircut which made him look kind of like TV and movie funnyman Sinbad. Does anyone else remember TV and movie funnyman Sinbad? He was on A Different World, and in First Kid with Phil Hartman? He was my generation's Steve Harvey.
I remember Sinbad...here's something shocking about him. I saw him doing stand up on Comedy Central fairly recently--like say a year ago--doing all new material, and...it was ACTUALLY FUNNY! Like really funny. Best joke was "People say their kid is their best friend...you can't have a best friend who's 7!"
Always liked Sinbad. I even liked Jingle All the Way and Houseguest!
