Which is terrible, really. I liked Trevor Goddard as an actor. I thought he played the "brutal, agressive villian" role very well; I've seen him play some truly menacing characters. I've also heard that he was a nice, decent guy in real life, too.
But I'm just too big of a prick to let go of something as gold as that Shang Tsung bit. And yes, I know I'm going to hell. Shut it.
