    Default Uncle Zeb is the all time great Dutch Mantel

    Just thought I'd throw this out there for those of you who have not been watching wrestling as long as I have. The man named Uncle Zeb, who accompanied Swagger tonight is none other than Dutch Mantel. I'm not going to recite his whole history, just look him up on wikipedia. Dutch was intrumental in the early careers of Undertaker, Steve Austin, and Sting. He is regarded as one of the greatest minds of our business. For me personally it was awesome to see Dutch back in a ring with a mic in his hand.

    There was a lot of negativity about this in the party thread, but I think this could turn out to be something potentially great. It was something totally unexpected which is always good, It's going to be interesting to see how the crowd reactions fare in different parts of the country - there wasn't much tonight, but WWE's going to be in the south for the next couple of weeks...

    Whatever it ends up being, it's going to be a million times better than the generic "Swagger is more aggressive than ever!" push that he initially looked like getting.

    And Zeb referenced being with Swagger's Dad in Vietnam. If this means that Bunkhouse Buck is coming back to reprise his role then how can you not be right behind this?

    I'm 100% behind this.

    And it's Nationalist, not Racist.
    Replacing John Cena with Roman Reigns is like replacing Hulk Hogan with Lex Luger.

    Dutch Mantel is fucking awesome. Just for that, I'm glad to see him on my television. Fuck yes. Fuck Jack Swagger though.

    Is he playing the same character that he did in his original WWF run? Wasn't he called Zeb back then too?

    Mantell is fantastic and after everything that's happened with his recent family tragedy it's great to see him on TV again.

    It's also nice to see another manager being put into the mix.

    Quite a clever choice of name really.

    There's a republican commentator called Ann Coulter.

    His promo wasn't racist. I hope that shit doesn't build up.

    It's an interesting angle, and one I'm interested to see continue.

    Of course Justin Valuable is in support of this, even going as far to consider him a truth-teller.

    troll, don't worry I got him. Right after giving his candy ass a Lock Bottom.

    You're so funny TGO. You should write the lame one liners for Obama tonight.

    So sad how you can't stay on topic, and try to make cheap shots about Obama to get under my skin. I'm discussing wrestling here, and this character.

    Like you don't do this to me in other threads? Get lost. I'm not wasting my time with you.

    Actually, I have made it a point to avoid you, as I've done for months now, including leading to you fleeing the boards for quite some time. Was a nice several weeks, actually. However much you may want to accuse me of following you around, it is very interesting that you'd take to this character even past kayfabe and claim him to be telling the truth when he's talking about how America should be a nation of white people.

    At the very least, those are racist undertones.

    When has wrestling not used subtle forms of racism to get heat for heels?

    I'm not saying it's this new thing, I'm countering the notion that there's nothing racist about this character.

    I'd say the character is xenophobic as opposed to racist.

    Here we go again. RACISM 24/7! Just stop going after me, please. I don't even mention you, yet you always nitpick everything I say. It's like you are looking to get under my skin. Don't you remember when you were a kid and someone told you to leave them alone? Try it, it's not too late.

    I'm sure you remember when you were a kid a bit better than me, since you still act like one half of the time in your posts. I've mentioned you twice in months. Months. Get over yourself, you're far less important to me than you seem to believe.

    Moving on, xenophobia and racism are sometimes correlated, and if I hear someone criticize others who don't look like him, that generally has to do with race. He didn't just say others who aren't from where he's from or who have different cultures, he specifically stated the visual. That is a racist undertone. In the end, it may not be the main focus of his character. From the looks of it, it probably won't be. But whatever the case, there were indeed racist undertones to that promo.

    No you do this all the time. I post something and you always take a subtle shot at me. Just get over the fact that you simply don't like me because I don't bow down to Obama -- never have, never will. Ever since he ran in 2008 you have been going after me all the time. Please stop bothering me. I don't want anything to do with you from this post on.
