Paramount and Huss

Saturday, November 17, 2001 11:56 AM
I was looking through the huss site, specifically at the alternative themes for the Giant Top Spin and I found these.  the second one down is called Smack Down.  I didn't think much of it besides the fact that the creator must have been a wrestling fan because Smackdown! is a WWF show.  I knew it when I saw the WWF logo on the side of the arm.  right now WWF has a contract with Viacom which is the parent company of Paramount.  I was wondering if the Paramount parks might have asked for this design so they could include a WWF theme in their parks?  also, the alternative themes for Jump 2 has a piledriver theme (a piledriver being a wrestling move) so I again wondered if Paramount might be trying to make a wrestling theme for their parks.

just because you have an aversion to wrestling doesn't mean it won't pay off for the park.  I believe that a WWF attraction would be a perfect addition to any park.  they both share a similar demographic, they would get wrestling fans into amusement parks and park goers into WWF shows.  do I like Brittney Spears?  no.  do I like Disney?   no.  do I respect that Disney World saw the potential of having Brittney perform and cashing in on her fans? yes.  this is not meant to be a wrestling is stupid/wrestling is great thread.  this is to explore the possibilities of having a WWF themed ride at an amusement park.

The WWF is so big (and awesome) that putting a WWF themed ride into a park would defenltly make sales go up! Esspecially in merchindice.

So what is better? SFMM or CP? I don't care! They both have 29 coasters between them that they build so we can have a good time!

Look closely at the picture on the side..  not the logo, but the picture..

Isn't that a picture of STING'S face?  Sure looks like it to me..  Kinda funny since he's about the ONLY major wrestler who's worth his salt that's NEVER wrestled in the WWF.

Geez.. it IS the offseason isn't it..

I thought that it was Sting's face, but I rarely watched WCW so I wouldn't know.  if so than that pretty much negates it being solely for WWF and Paramount.  unless Huss knows something we don't ;)

It could also be Kane's face on the front of the Huss ride. Though you have to remeber that Ted Turner sold the WCW this year to WWF Entertainment, so WWF owns all of WCW's logos, wrestlers and such.

that is similar to stings makeup but not identical

also he retired when the  wwf  bought wcw  rather than go to the wwf

he also has a big contract with time warner like many of the   big name wcw stars that didnt show up in the wwf  (golberg,nash, flair)  so he doesnt need the work

lastly how about this for a wrestling themed hyper coaster "andre the giant"

Looking at those alternative themes, I noticed all of them had the water-effects. Do you think they'll be standard fare from now on?

I noticed all the water too.  I would think that water would mess with the gears or something in the ride.  I know that they can withstand rain, but if water is on it all the time it almost seems like they're asking for a malfunction.
