Q: What’s worse than hearing talentless unfunny hack Mark Madden on commentary when watching WCW Monday Nitro?
A: Seeing him half-naked after Tank Abbott inexplicably beats him up and strips off his shirt!
Eww… Thanks a lot, WCW!
The problem with trying to get Tank over as a heel doing this is that nobody watching WCW particularly cared about Mark Madden one way or another, so nobody really hated Tank or felt sympathy for Mark.
So, it did nothing to get Tank over as a heel and it wasn’t going to lead to Tank Vs. Mark (thank goodness!) or Tank Vs. Someone standing up for Mark.
In other words; it was a complete waste of time that probably did more harm than good for Tank’s reputation as a badass.
Just more brilliant booking from our friends in WCW!
Still, it’s better than when Tank became a huge fan of 3 Count, I guess (?).
