The NetherRealm guys recently announced the return of the character Noob Saibot for the upcoming Mortal Kombat 11. Am I crazy or does he sound like Ole Anderson doing the Black Scorpion (heh)/Shockmaster voice?

He does, but an awful lot of people do - have someone try to do a growly voice and run it through the usual filters, you'll get something that sounds more or less like that.

Of course it is MK, so for all we know it's deliberate.

Why not listen for yourself?


(Any excuse to post hilariously goofy Black Scorpion stuff.)

There was been another tragic loss in the constant war the WWE have been waging against the concept of people having full names. Joining (Alexander) Rusev, Big E (Langston), (Erik) Rowan, and (Luke) Harper, meet (Mustafa) Ali!

Yup, just Ali.

Don't forget (Adrian) Neville and (Antonio) Cesaro.

And ugh. It's so rarely been a good idea... of the above, I think Rusev is the only one who really needed it.

Cesaro's full name is still used on occasion though?

On the other hand, I thought Neville was, er, Neville's first name, so clearly the damage is being done in general.

I swear, I still want somebody to pop up who keeps *adding* names. Like, anytime anyone else loses one, he adds it to his own. See how long he can get that chyron.

I think that Viktor and Konnor are more on-brand for The Ascension than Rick Victor and Connor O'Brien were. But yeah, hopefully like Apollo Crews, Mustafa Ali will get his second name back quickly.

When you're also doing stuff like fucking with the way it's written, you're basically changing gimmick anyhow. (And initial NXT Ascension and the Konnor/Viktor pairing were very different, what with initial NXT Ascension talking their shit about the future of mankind and all.)
