Vintage Notes: On “Over” (circa 2002)

“Over” is interesting.  “Over” is what happens when you finally get there.  You’re over when you succeed, when you’ve won the support of the crowd.  Triple H, who my smark friends think is killing wrestling, has actually worked “over” into his gimmick.  He’s called “The Game”, and his entrance video says “Game Over”, inverting that phrase into a new definition, away from its video game, Aliens 2 meaning of “Game over, man!  Game over!”  As though a rebuttal to the accusation that he sucks the life out of any match he’s in.
