Too Cool's Post-Match Dance
By Alex Al-Kazzaz
I always say that I was such a happy wrestling fan during the attitude era. I can honestly say that I got into pro wrestling at the right time. Keep in mind, I was six, seven, and eight years old during that time. 1999 to 2001 to be more precise. So I was too young to understand much of the storylines but nonetheless, I loved what I saw. What amazes me is that my Mom knew I watched it and she had no problem with it. Hell, she used to watch Raw Is War with me ALL THE TIME!
I have a lot of memories from watching Raw Is War and Smackdown during the attitude era. I remember many things and there was much that I loved. Out of the many I loved, Too Cool was one of them. More specifically, I loved Too Cool's Post-Match Dance routine. I loved it so much that soon my little brother and I would get off the couch and dance when we saw Too Cool do it on TV. We imitated Too Cool and it was fun. I couldn't do the worm...I tried and tried but I couldn't. Thankfully, my brother did. And yeah, it was tough because there were only two of us as my third brother was less than a year old at the time.
I'll never forget when The Dudley Boyz danced with Too Cool. It was fun to see. I always wanted to see Kai En Tai dance with Too Cool. Well, it did happen but Kai En Tai being heels, they fooled us and ruined the dance! Yeah, that disappointed me because I've always been a fan of Funaki and Taka Michinoku. Kai En Tai were certainly entertaining dudes. Both are very underrated guys. People call me crazy, but I wouldn't have minded Kai En Tai turning face and being in the WWF Tag Team title picture! I mean...why not? But overall, yeah, seeing Kai En Tai dance with Too Cool definitely would have been loved by the fans. It certainly would have been the perfect way to turn Kai En Tai face, no?
Too Cool's dance routine really got over well with the fans. It really skyrocketed Too Cool's popularity. The fans adored Too Cool and the dancing was always well-received. The fans truly adored it. That's why I say that Rikishi's heel turn was horrible. Not only because Rikishi's heel run didn't go well, but it killed Too Cool's momentum. Personally, I was saddened to see the end of Too Cool as a three-man stable.
Rest In Peace Christopher Lawler aka Grandmaster Sexay.
