Voodoo Killed the Soccer Fans
Of all the foolish gimmicks that the WWF has had over the years (Red Rooster, Repo Man, Warlord, I'm sure I'm missing some), I feel without question the all-time worst was Papa Shango. He apparently was a witchcraft practitioner who decided to change careers overnight and become a pro wrestler. Well that career didn't take, so he's back to witchcraft and his appearance at a soccer match in the Congo (it will always be Zaire to me) today had some unintended consequences...as in a frantic deadly riot. Soccer fans...they never cease to make asses of themselves, and we thank them for that.
