*There's a thread about this in the TNA Fourm but I felt my blog had been to inactive*
This sunday night TNA will offer it's biggest show in it's history with a PACKED card.
Diamonds in the Rough Vs Apollo, Siaki and Shark Boy
-In what is essentially time filler that will be used to put over Diamonds as a heel force, it won’t be horrible but won’t be special. Some think it’ll be used in the “free” section of the show, but I don’t. I expect it to occur during the later part of the show to separate a couple of the hot matches apart. I wouldn’t expect this to go any longer then it needs to (5-8 minutes), there are too many big matches that need time and this match doesn’t need to eat time up because it has 2 purposes, to put over Diamonds and offer a cooling down match.
Who should go over: Diamonds
Who will go over: Diamonds
Lance Hoyt Vs “Alpha Male” Monty Brown
-Originally this was Raven/Brown and originally I was interested in that showdown but instead they threw in Hoyt, whom is over as a big face with the Orlando crowd against Brown. I’m confused because I assumed they would build Brown as a face but it doesn’t appear to be the case, or maybe this is just a issue of TNA had no one else to throw at Brown that the crowd cared about. Going over Hoyt is better then going over another lesser known and less over name. Another squash doesn’t do Brown much good. This will easily go down as a quasi-squash.
Who should go over: Brown
Who will go over: Brown
X Division 4 Way
Sonjay Dutt Vs Roderick Strong Vs Alex Shelley Vs Austin Aries
-Generation Next sans Jack Evans vs. Dutt makes for a happy fan here. Quite frankly, I would love to see Gen Next form as a unit in TNA but it already has a few heel groups already. It’s essentially a toss-up to determine who goes over between Shelley and Aries. Shelley is the de-facto heel here, while Aries whom is already getting very over with the crowd is the “biggest” face. Strong is one of the fastest growing commodities in wrestling today, whose having a killer year (see his work with Gibson, Punk and Joe) and Dutt can carry his own weight. This will be a fun match, there’s no question about that.
Who should go over: Austin Aries
Who will go over: Alex Shelley
Monster’s Ball 2
Abyss Vs Jeff Hardy Vs Sabu Vs Rhino
-With a show heavy on X style exhibitionism, TNA offers a match for the fans with a violence fetish. These 4 men are very affluent in this environment. Abyss always seems to bring it in this situation and the other 3 men are more then capable of bringing the violent quotient to the equation. Quite frankly, Abyss is the biggest asset for the company involved in this match. Jeff Hardy might be the biggest “name”, and Sabu might have the most historic following but Abyss is someone who could very easily shine for the company down the road as it continues to grow. Some might argue that Abyss doesn’t need a win here, while Rhino does. I definitely see that sentiment. Jeff Hardy and Sabu will certainly go to extreme lengths to put on a show here and watching these two engage in a “top this” spot-fest could be among the highlights of this action packed show. Mark my words, @ some point during this match, someone and something outrageous will occur that we will see for months to come.
Who should go over: Abyss
Who will go over: Rhino
Matt Bentley Vs Chris Sabin Vs Petey Williams
-It’s odd to think that an Ultimate X match could get lost in the shuffle but it did thanks to the strong card surrounding it. This will be the very definition of an unapologetic spot-fest and that’s what they are intending to do. “The others” call the promotion a “high-wire act” and this is the definition of that, almost literally. Ultimate X is to TNA, what LADDER match is for WWE. The previous Ultimate X matches really raised the bar and it’s going to be a challenge for these three men to conquer it. Matt Bentley is really over as a face here but I suspect that its Traci’s doing. Williams is a good heel while Sabin, at least for me is neutral. That leads me to believe Sabin goes over, while Williams/Bentley continue their deal else-where.
Who should go over: Sabin
Who will go over: Sabin
Predicted time and rating: 15:00
Jushin “Thunder” Liger Vs Samoa Joe
-The reason I am buying this show. Essentially there is no “story” for this match except this…These two are incredible athletes meeting for the first time. One is a legend in this business and the other is the BEST wrestler in North America today. After 12-15 minutes in the ring, these two men will have told a better story than any of the convoluted situations WWE has cooked up in the last few years. I’m not saying this will be ***** because it won’t be. The last ***** match on American soil, did include Samoa Joe and Liger has his share of legendary matches as well, so these two aren’t strangers to putting on classics. What is strongly appealing about this match is the complete difference of styles. Joe with strong style and Liger with the junior style. Joe can work with anyone and I don’t know much about Liger’s history but I’m guessing he’s game for Joe as well. There’s no question that Joe MUST go over. Samoa Joe is the guy who will lead TNA to the next level. Samoa Joe is what Taz was meant to be. It seems strange to fly in a legend like Liger just to job him out but it’s not like TNA would the first promotion to do so and Liger will hopefully get a win @ the primetime special.
Who should go over: Samoa Joe
Who will go over: Samoa Joe
NWA-TNA World Title
Special Referee: Tito Ortiz
Kevin Nash Vs Jeff Jarrett
-Allegedly this is the main event for this show. We have already spoken our piece about the travesty that is Kevin Nash getting this spot over Raven. I understand (really) where Dixie and Jarrett were coming from when they alleged that Kevin Nash had the mainstream face value appeal that this show needed (although, I argue that Jeff Hardy has just about equal value as Nash does). The issue here is, this is the WRESTLEMANIA of TNA and the “main event/title match” is a heatless and story free showdown between two of wrestling’s lowest draws. This already happened a few months ago where by a miracle and 200 layers of camouflage, it was moderately acceptable. On a show that carries the potential of 4 ****+ matches, this is a horrible match to display as your main event/world title match (in fact, I believe TNA is smart enough to know that this can’t be the legit main event). There’s no doubt Jeff Jarrett’s keeping the title. I never thought I’d say these words, but I HOPE Jeff Jarrett’s reign continues tonight. I’d love to see Raven show up here and win the title in a impromptu match but it’s not going to happen because that’s fantasy booking and not good business. Raven/Jarrett III is the money match for right now and they have to at least build to it in some manner Sunday night.
Who should go over: Jeff Jarrett
Who will go over: Jeff Jarrett
TNA X Title
30 Minute Iron Man
“The Fallen Angel” Christopher Daniels Vs AJ Styles
-Shawn Michaels, Kurt Angle. Take note. These two men will execute a proper 30 minute iron-man match that will tell a story and make the work fit it, instead of your masturbatory style. The first installment of the Iron-Man series between the two was nothing short of great but it’s my belief that these two, whom have met over 100 times in the last three years will bring something new to the table. I don’t know if this will be the MATCH OF THE NIGHT (which it’s facing stiff competition for those honors), but it’s the most important match because in the eyes of most fans; THIS IS THE MAIN EVENT. It’s possible it will even conclude the night as well, as it should for a variety of reasons. Who goes over? Does it matter? Yes. Merely giving a great match isn’t going to cut it now. They aren’t playing to a niche market anymore. AJ Styles will be the face of the promotion, TNA’s own version of Hulk Hogan but on a completely different level. AJ Styles has to win this match on TNA’s biggest night. If this WRESTLEMANIA for TNA, the biggest face needs to go over. Christopher Daniels is a great heel and he doesn’t require the title to remain such. He’ll look strong in this match anyways.
Who should go over: AJ Styles
Who will go over: AJ Styles
This is one extremely sacked card, with 4 matches potentially capable of hitting **** (Styles/Angel, Ball, X 4way and Joe/Liger). When is the last time WWE offered that? WMX7?.
There is no question that Sunday night is a monumental night for TNA and with the track record of producing top-notch quality PPV’S in addition to the added importance of the show, there’s no reason not to believe that BFG could easily blow it’s own expectations out of the water. It does include a shaky and suspect excuse of a “main event” that shouldn’t keep fans away from the show because the rest of the card is going to BRING IT.
If you are still on the fence about sunday night, you shouldn’t be. Because if you don’t find Sunday night’s show to be enjoyable, then you will not find a better alternative on a mainstream level. TNA has it’s flaws but that it hasn’t limited the efforts of the workers and the quality they offer.
Quickie Summer Slam thoughts
Orlando Jordan Vs Chris Benoit
So did Stephanie look at the booking sheet this afternoon and realized “Oh fuck! That Benoit guy has a match? I need more time for my soap operas. I got an idea, people like benoit don’t they? Have him beat Orlando James in 25 seconds and they will love me!”
It wasn’t even a squash. It was just Blink and over. It didn’t really make Benoit look lethal but more like Jordan was a complete pussy.
Benoit was too excited for winning a 25 second match, He should have simply taken the title, snot rocketed Jordan and left the ring like the warrior he is.
Matt Hardy Vs Edge
Kudos for the effort of creating the shoot like atmosphere. However that’s about the only upside the “match” had. Matt did an average blade job and thus was enough to call the match off and yet Hogan bled buckets later that night…nothing.
It was obvious they would blow this gold mine angle but I didn’t know it would be this bad. Matt must really be greedy because he sold out to be a bitch.
Lita, as a side note, was really nice looking tonight.
Eddy Vs Rey
Remember ten years ago, they had a Ladder match at this event. I remember being SO excited for that match. Now Ladder matches are like NO DQ matches. This was your typical rey/eddy WWE match tossed in with a couple nice but nothing completely mind blowing in terms of spots. They clearly botched a few spots again, which is a growing habit for these two. Mania was fine with the potential of nerves and rey’s mask but here it shouldn’t been an issue.
Overall the match was an overbooked mess that offered a few nice little moments but nothing memorable, aside from Rey backdropping eddy off the ladder and the ladder giving way and rey collapsing through it. ..something Im guessing wasn’t planned.
The usual “Im climbing…really slow” disease attacked Eddy here. Horrible finish to boot. Vicky looked her best ever tonight which still isn’t much but Rey’s wife wasn’t all that bad looking.
Kurt Angle Vs Eugene
Very effective here. Angle/Cena is set for Unforgiven and Angle was VERY strongly booked here. Took Eugene out and quickly as he should have. Eugene is dying an rapid death…
Undertaker Vs Randy Orton
A decent match here, that in time I’ll decide if it was better/worst then Mania but I thought it was pretty enjoyable for what it was. Orton took some nifty bumps here and they do work well together.
Jericho Vs Cena
Well guess it wasn’t just Canada that doesn’t like Cena. The revolt is slowing arriving against Cena and Jericho was very over tonight but WWE won’t take notice of that. Jericho is gone now, off to spend time with Fozzy, as he should. Because he would be spinning his wheels on Raw. Hopefully he can return with a spark next time. He hasn’t taking any significant time off since he arrived, he was dreadfully stale. He needs the vacation.
The match was the best Jericho was going to get out of Cena without resorting to carnal violence and blood. All in all a good match here that wasn’t special.
JBL Vs Batista
Once again, Batista comes off flat, sure he was super over thanks to the hometown crowd but the match was just flat and for a match with these stipulations, it was fairly tame.
Hulk Hogan Vs Shawn Michaels
The crowd was soundly behind Hogan here. Shawn was great here in over-selling everything so dramatically. He was clearly making a HUGE effort here to make this special. It wasn’t remotely near Rock/Hogan and I doubt anyone expected it to be. Hogan did a fine blade job, a departure of sorts to see Shawn bust someone up and remain juice free. The match had a weak finish and the shitty conclusion to this storyline was pure bullshit
Back to Holy Bible Kid it seems.
The freshest breath of air for Raw in months already snuffed out.
WWE is so stale right now, the wrestling is ahead of 2002 (first half at least) on Raw but the interest I have is clearly dying out.
Ring of Honor is producing an amazing string of shows that are true to what wrestling is and WWE is producing this, for every $35 bucks I drop on WWE, I drop $65 bucks for ROH.
No need to discuss my personal life for you to read. From here on out, it’s mainly diatribes towards the basic stuff we all cover here.
This Week in Wrestling
Are the WWE Fans (at least the ones we are associated with here) losing all verifiable proof of any remote intelligence?
The three Big Stories this week in “Professional” Entertainment are as follows
1) Brock Lesnar returns to WWE
2). Mass Cuts
3). The Backlash of the Muhammad Hassan Segment this Thursday following the tragic events that occurred Thursday morning.
Brock Lesnar’s impending return is being met with various reactions; some exhilarated and some outraged. Both are acceptable emotional reactions.
There has been a lot of pointless debate about how the return of Lesnar should be handled.
The general consensus is that the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow is the potential of a Batista-Lesnar showdown in Chicago to headline next year WrestleMania XXII event.
The problem is that everyone has their own differing belief on how exactly that clash should be built up.
There isn’t a single solid or even a loose argument that Brock Lesnar has to go onto Raw (although it’s likely some people here being the irrational and profoundly oblivious idiots they are, believe Lesnar would be better suited for Monday night. The same show that already has a large cluster of big names from John Cena, Jericho, Hogan, Michaels, Angle, The Big Show, Edge, Kane and Triple H. There’s no way Lesnar wouldn’t get lost in the shuffle over there, it’s not like anyone on that side would play any sort of political Shenanigans). It is crystal clear that Brock Lesnar needs to be on Smackdown.
The debate becomes separated into three things
A). should Brock pay “dues”?
B). How does Brock return?
C). Does a return of Brock Lesnar really signal a change for the Company
A). absolutely not. Bottom line is this, it’s a business. Every wrestler is there for the same reason, to make a living. Don’t get me wrong, some of them have a stronger ethical attachment to their profession but they have their own bottom line, which is making that income. If you want to pay these so called “dues”, do so behind the screen and away from the product itself.
Brock Lesnar, the human being probably deserves to pay some dues but not the character, the performer MUST NOT be doing jobs right off the bat to the bigwigs in the back who feel the need to squeeze onto their “spots”.
B). He needs to return where he left off, DECIMATING the roster, creating a sense of paranoia and uncertainty.
It would be wise to play off the reality of Lesnar’s departure. USE IT TO YOUR ADVANTAGE! However such action much be handled delicately, they cannot under any circumstances even come close to attaching some sort of “failure” brand on Lesnar for not getting into the NFL as he had attempted.
You focus on the fact he left the company and deserted the fans and gave no concern for the potential ramifications that come from it.
This is a delicate situation and the most crucial aspect is how he is brought back and how he is built upon that.
None of this “Ring Rust” claptrap; Brock Lesnar is an indestructible force. Ring Rust doesn’t apply to him. He is on another level and that MUST be emphasized emphatically.
C) Put aside the skimpy egos of the players in the back, Brock Lesnar’s return could potentially alter the structure of the company. However let’s be honest; the reality is…
The return of Brock really won’t change anything. Maybe aesthetically but as a whole, the company’s structure will remain the same. It might appear fresh for a couple weeks or maybe even a few months if they really play the cards right which we know is long shot expectation as it is.
It will require a complete overhaul of the product and bringing back Brock Lesnar and cutting a few meaningless names and maybe even adding a couple more of those brilliant creative Hollywood writers they covet won’t change a damn thing.
Vince McMahon is now a feeble old man trapped in collecting the reality that surrounds him. It’s not completely at the feet of Vince McMahon however, it’s the entire pyramid.
Brock Lesnar will be a nice addition to the roster and could possibly give us some quality that the company is sorely lacking but you are fooling yourself if you think this will shake the company to its core.
-As of this writing, the WWE roster has been truncated. However none of these releases will change or alter how the company is. Allow us to give a pointless “examination” of the releases.
-Nothing significant of value here. His release has no effect on the product at all. He will obviously rebound and find good work in TNA, ROH and Japan.
-Don’t fool yourself into thinking that because he slapped a student for breaking kayfabe, he was fired for it. That was the trigger WWE was looking to obtain to finally get rid of Cornette. It’s obvious they didn’t value his commitment to the territory as the track record clearly proves.
However it’s not to say Cornette is blameless here. Cornette has a well documented history with rage and let’s face it, he’s not exactly the most politically correct person walking around but that’s insignificant when you consider the man at the helm of the ship.
Jim Cornette’s value was greatly under appreciated by this company ran by monkeys, It’s not for sure who is the most as lost here because what exactly is WWE losing here? They never utilized Cornette and his work, so clearly what ever he did was irrelevant and they basically paid Cornette to be a babysitter.
Will Jim Cornette get work elsewhere? Honestly I don’t see ROH or TNA altering its design to accommodate Cornette’s completely different style. He could however just as easily return to the fold as a manager and that could allow him to do what he does best and hopefully help resolve these anger issues of his.
-Jim Cornette mission was to make something out of this roid monkey and that he delivered. It just may have been one of his greatest accomplishments of his creative legacy. This was completely pissed on. Matt Morgan offered only one thing of value and that was his ability to cut a promo. Something WWE seemingly salivated over. It appeared they had a jackpot here. Big tall monster that can talk and doesn’t require a voice like Lesnar and Vader did whose size would be able mask his weakness in the ring. They killed him by sending Carlito over to Raw and without making any effort; they cut a man with marginal upside.
Where does Morgan go from here? I wouldn’t be surprised to see him over in Japan soon.
-Mrs. Wilson jokes are getting old but let’s face it. That is Billy Kidman’s identity. Trust me; there are worst identities to have. He was done. His body completely banged up from a plethora of injuries that he was never going to recover from. It’s not surprising he was cut.
Will he get work with TNA? History indicates that he will, simply for being a former WCW star. I don’t see him hanging around for much longer however.
Gangrel-Why put someone back on your employment roster if it was just for a couple appearances.
Joy Giovanni-Clearing out the divas is fine with me. She had a brief period of relevance but that ship sailed quickly.
Dawn Marie- Technically she wasn’t released. She was pushed out with a full lump payment. Technically it’s still low grade bullshit just for the ethical reasoning. However I don’t think, honestly it was because of the pregnancy completely but the fact she was aging and although she was an excellent asset to be used for something beyond tits and ass, that just went over the heads of creative. I’m not quite sure if she will rebound and continue to work in the business after the birth.
-Shawn did him in first by refusing to do a rocker reunion tour because Shawn felt he wasn’t a nostalgic act just yet. To his credit, he might have a point. Don’t blame Shawn for this though, Marty was the irresponsible one (funny how the more people change…the more they stay the same) who put himself out of a job.
Kenzo Suzuki and Hiroko
-They weren’t on television since January and they weren’t getting over then. Another flop in the book of failures.
-For what attributes he possessed, “the look”, he lacked in everything else. It’s not a case of a green worker here. He’s been in the business for now 5 ½ years. He has hardly shown any measure of improvement in that time, why should we expect him to by now? A case of WWE making another sensible cut.
Charlie Haas and Jackie Gayda
-Here is a completely different case however. Gayda was expendable and she even knew this and prepared for it. The fact Charlie Haas was capable of actually wrestling, something they claim to still endorse, and the WWE was incapable of accepting that fact.
To be honest, I’m happy Charlie Haas is gone from WWE. Haas has made it clear he wants to excel in Ring of Honor and the independents and show what the WWE was too afraid to showcase and the success of James Gibson, indicates to me that Haas will have no problem.
It’s just a shame they did this shortly after their marriage. However this might be a GOOD thing for their marriage. Instead of being on the road 250 days a year together potentially suffering the pitfalls of other wrestling marriages, they can live a more balanced life.
Jackie will find work in other venues, from fitness to modeling. They will be just fine.
-A slight surprise if only for the fact he was an example of being completely home grown. However it was time to accept that the TE experiment was a absolute failure, which is evident when only Johnny Nitro and Matt Cappotelli (still floundering in OVW) are the only ones left standing as far as wrestling talent is concerned (Matthews is a product of the TE system) It’s funny that Maven was clearly signed for one reason, He could talk.
That makes it two Tough Enough products to only have talent in that field to be cut, making it seem they would be directing towards a inclination for wrestling talent but the release of Haas and Akio counters that argument. I won’t miss Maven at all. Quite frankly I don’t know if TNA will bother with this but they may find the appeal of potentially turning Maven into a “star” when WWE spent years on him.
I applaud this decision.
-Limited to his range of what he could offer, but yet he delivered superbly at his talent of bumping and selling. I guess beating down Spike wasn’t a selling point anymore and that heel run didn’t light the world on fire. Quite frankly he wasn’t serving a purpose in WWE, now he can be happy and fling himself around in the Indy scene.
-He failed at making the best of his big hyped push and cemented his burial by crossing Jim Cornette. No talent, and virtually hated by both OVW and WWE. That’s saying a lot with all the pricks walking back there.
The Dudley Boyz
-An absolute surprise if you were expecting WWE to rebuild its tag division but it’s been in the crapper for years. Bubba and D-Von will retain the rights to the names, I believe. Which right there makes them the biggest Free Agents for TNA to grab. It won’t boost their product or draw but it will give them that “still relevant” appeal because Nash, Hall and Jarrett were completely played out. While the Dudz have a chance to revitalize themselves.
-Before this week; his character which could have been brilliant with the right writing had merely been an annoying cheap heat piece of junk. That’s par for the offerings we have grown accustomed to from this company.
The original design of this character was that Hassan was an Arab American looking for acceptance. That scheme flew out the window after the first vignette aired.
From there it became a complete reflection of the incredibly warped mindset of Vince McMahon and sadly the unbelievable lack of intelligence it caters to.
Monday night they continued the Hassan/Undertaker program by simply casting Shawn Davari (notice they completely drop his first name there? Guess bible boy didn’t want to be connected) as a martyr. Okay, sure he didn’t strap himself with explosives but im assuming that’s just because the prop department wasn’t stocked with those clever rubber sticks. To top it off, they completely abandon the supposed meaning of Hassan’s “intentions” and just completely made him the image of a terrorist. 4 Men in camo and ski masks (I’m guessing no one could grow a scraggly beard quick enough) attacked the undertaker.
So far you can stretch it and say it’s not much different from other heel beat owns but it is when it’s done in the time of unrest and WWE continued to play into the usual stereotypes of the Arab people and perpetuated the same low class stereotype wrestling has been slapped with for years and something that I don’t believe will ever change.
It escapes from being the traditional heel beat down when Piano wire is used, an instrument well documented as a tool for terrorist activity.
Once again, it’s shining example of Vince McMahon trying to dazzle us with his shocking controversial characters when it’s really just a desperate ploy.
It was bad enough they even did this ridiculous segment, it’s offensive but not because of the circumstances but because it was just plain stupid and this type of “entertainment” makes me ashamed to be a “wrestling” fan.
I think I know how this story ends…
It was good. Very Good. However…
THE WRITING WAS ON THE WALL
I can’t say I was surprised by any means. I knew it was coming and had the feeling in the pit of my stomach, I knew all along. It’s how this thing works, Love. You put your stock into love and cast away your ability to think clearly…
There’s no question that I let myself down here and let her control me and for what? So she could end up wanting to explore other things and then she goes and claims “I will love you forever”…which you quietly chuckle to yourself because of the absurd hypocrisy of it all. And you quietly thank yourself for being the "better" one because she never knew you were doing the same unto to her...
In one sense, I’m “broken” but that’s not because it’s over, like I said I knew there would come a day she would leave despite all the times she said otherwise, I’m broken because I learned another piece of life’s learning puzzle, nothing ends right.
Sadly you let something last as long as this did and believe me, *almost* sixteen months is a lifetime for me and what gets to you, what eats away in the night is the fact she was *that* easily willing to break it off, and not really willing to go for it and make it work and settled for what would be easier. I don’t know if she honestly likes this other guy and im guessing she does. Because I would hate to think she ended what we had for some short lived fling. But its what it is.
It’s funny, in some sense that you finally put yourself in a position where you would go to hell just to protect her or be with her and yet, while you’re spending an entire holiday weekend wondering while she's in the arms of another, should you feel guilty for letting it happen knowing well enough?
It’s like a really bad soap opera here. Because while she’s in those arms, here I am, fighting this feeling that kept growing in my stomach, telling others “I cant do it”. I passed up on opportunities just because that was how strong I felt for that relationship but was wise to know she would do something like this and planned for it....
This is how the story ends…
short n sweet
Opening Segment-Carlito's Cabana with guest-Hulk Hogan
It's bad enough they have fallen back into the rut of using Hogan beyond a one off appearence and now have made him a consistant character once again but now we have to watch clips of his television show?
Honestly I can see the show being amusing in the trainwreck sense.
Nice to at least acknowledge Angle making Hogan tap out way back when Hogan was just an spry newcomer.
Edge and Snitsky Vs Kane and The Big Show
I can't understand this at all; It feels like they are just keeping Edge in a warming position for now, waiting to see what Matt Hardy decides.
If they wanted to build Edge up, he should be going over Kane and TBS easily instead of looking like second fiddle to GENE SNITSKY!
Okay. I am in love with her. It's simple as that.
but KERWYN WHITE? Oh god, it should be amusing for a couple weeks and then he'll go back to being Chavito or something im sure...and not a soul will care
Rap Vs Rock
It first seemed like they were building to a rock/rap storyline but it instead for once went a smarter direction and it shows so far why they don't like each other and showed, at least it will provide some great promo wars. They need to bring up that Cena went over Jericho early in his career and that plays some part of Jericho's hatred for him.
He had his cup of coffee, get him off the tv.
If you liked this, you haven't gotten laid ever in your life.
JTTS VS JTTS
So they channel Macho Man, Masters, AJ Styles, Undertaker all into one lump of suck? Yay for Val Venis still having a job. Why the need to protect him? Just let the "Pheom" go over CLEAN. Is that so hard to understand?
Holy hell was that the suck or what? I literally ignored every second of it, It was painfully obvious Shawn was turning when he wasn't as "into" it, you just felt the presence of a heel turn coming and BOOM, it happened.
About fucking time. Shame it had to come against Hogan leading to a program bound to overshine the title matches.
Today is the nationally celebrated holiday known as “Fourth of July”
I remember as a child growing up loving this holiday because to me it meant my family would gather at my aunt’s house and we all would partake in a day of swimming, volleyball, basketball and a scrumptious cookout. Three years ago that tradition came to end.
My grandmother died on July 4th 2002. It was one of those “unexpected” situations where despite her health completely deteriorating leaving her into this complete state of senile-ness. She was 79 years old. While everyone else lamented on her “sudden” death (she died of a heart attack to be specific), I spent that day contemplating how life plays out.
To say the least, for whatever reason, that 4th of july holiday expired to exist after her death. The last two years I found other things to occupy the day. Today; the 2005 edition of this holiday has basically been me sticking @ home and watching various marathons and such. While my girlfriend Kristen is at an amusement park with the guy she’s seeing on the side. She thinks I don’t know but I do. I’m waiting for her to spill her guts but for now I enjoy seeing her in action, pretending everything is all right. It’s fine though, always expect this. It’s not like I haven’t put things in plans for my life beyond her.
RAW is back on again and forever the same reason to watch is mainly boredom and habit I will watch the show and it’ll suck for about 90% of the show while 10% is amusing or just down right atrocious, its somewhat entertaining. The last two shows were above the suck lines so who knows, maybe 3 for 3? Doubt it. It’s a holiday, why waste anything good on this night.
My argument is, might as well show 4 15-20 minute matches just for the hell of it and not bother advancing storylines since ratings will be in the low 3’s anyways.
