Scrappy Jobber

Okay, bear with me.  This is going to seem meandering, but it WILL get around to wrestling, I promise.

As a kid, I watched Scooby-Doo.  I remember very vividly watching the Guiding Light end credits waiting for Scooby to start (and I STILL remember the damn Guiding Light tune).  Like a lot of people, I HATED Scrappy, his loud little nephew who was always willing to fight.  (In all honesty though I didn't much care about Shaggy and Scooby either, I liked Daphne and Freddy and Velma and haunted houses and ghosts and mysteries and stuff--the stuff that Shaggy and Scooby always ran away from damn it.  But OCCASIONALLY when they split up, Velma would go with Shaggy and Scooby, I liked that.)

Hee hee, a cat walked across my computer up there, and I feel like leaving it in.  Where was I...

BUT re-watching Scooby as an adult, I love Scrappy.  Because he's like, "No, look, this shit needs to get done, let's fucking DO IT."  (That should be his catch phrase instead of "Puppy power.")  And Shaggy and Scooby are absolutely worthless cowards.  No threat too small to run away from.  I will say this in their favor though: they obviously care about Scrappy.  Because in his eagerness to do what's right, Scrappy fails to adequately gauge his own abilities as well as his foes'.  And Shags and Scoob are sure to carry him away from any fight they suspect he couldn't win.

SO Scrappy's like that upbeat jobber who doesn't realize how doomed he is, with a moral obligation to never back down, however outnumbered he is.  AND with this crazy loyal love for his uncle Scooby, failing to recognize Scooby's cowardice, and dragging his uncle TOWARDS danger so they can fight the good fight as often as Scooby drags his nephew AWAY from danger.

By the way, I hope you all know who Shaggy and Scooby and Scrappy are, but this is long enough already without a lot of explanation I'm sure you don't need, and anyway, there's always internet research if you DON'T know.

ANYWAY now I love Scrappy for his willingness to fight, even if he had to drag a couple of cowardly pussies kicking and screaming to try to keep them from disgracing themselves.

AND in the match featuring Apollo Crews vs. Braun Strowman, Apollo Crews is Scrappy and Braun Strowman is a disgruntled cabbage farmer.  Apollo-Scrappy goes in all heart, with every expectation of winning.  And Titus O'Neil is his uncle Scooby, trying to keep himself out of danger--UNTIL it comes to attempting to help his beloved nephew.  And Braun-cabbage farmer is a great heel, complete with raising the shoulder before the three-count and licking his jobber's head (?!--around the 2:10 mark) and that awesome kicking-him-out-of-the-air thing and throwing him unceremoniously into an ambulance and everything.
