Over: Your Standard Weekly Glorification Of Pentagon Jr.
It’s fun to go back to the beginning of the season and see how Pentagon Jr. was portrayed then, as opposed to now. When he debuted, he was the third-most interesting person in a triple-threat match. He got a cool martial-arts vignette, but it didn’t really mean anything at the time, and he ended up being Chavo Guerrero’s jerky subordinate. Somewhere in the 30-ish episodes in the in-between, he became the pissed-off ninja skeleton we all love and run in fear from … the type of guy who can sit in Dario Cueto’s office in Halloween facepaint doing Dikembe Mutombo finger-wags and look like the roughest dude on the block. I love it.
