    WCW SuperBrawl V

    I watched this a week or two ago. I thought Paul Roma was great, but this event was a low point for WCW. The Bash at the Beach from the same year was worse though. I was dissappointed to see that they included the Lifeguard match on the Savage DVD.

    The Legacy of the Radicals

    I thought it would be interesting to sum each of the "Radicals" legacy up in one word. Perry Saturn: Moppy Eddie Guerrerro: Mustache Chris Benoit: Woman Dean Malenko: Oompa-Loompa

    Most Dastardly Heel Acts

    Without a doubt, that was a dastardly heel act, second only to his interview after the fact.

    Foley to TNA????

    I enjoyed Cactus Jack's commentary on Smackdown. Anything is better than Jim Ross, except of course, the announce team for TNA. What does a Cactus Jack have to offer in the ring these days other than nostalgia? Stick to broadcasting, Jack. This "Mainstream appeal" issue is overrated. You're either a wrestling fan or your not. If you aren't, then it doesn't matter if Mick Foley is the president of the USA. You're not going to watch.

    Your favorite near fall spots/moves

    Anytime a wrestler performs a sunset flip I jump out of my seat and spill my drink. Inevitably, I turn to the person next to me and say "Did you see that?!"

    Ric Flair gone from WWE?

    Hey, I thought Ric Flair retired. What's with this "available for independant bookings" crap? Sounds like he's been getting some bad ideas from Brett Favre. Har har har.

    Best Endings To Pay-Per-Views

    Without a doubt, the best ending to a pay per view was when Hulkamania ran wild over WrestleMania 9.

    House Fire

    What are your 3 favorite matches, ppv's, etc. Pick three and run from the flames. 1) Summer Slam '89-This card featured an Intercontinental title match between Rick Rude and the Ultimate Warrior which was, to quote Sean Mooney, "the ultimate in exhilaration." The best in their series of matches. Gene Okerlund was going interview Rude and when they cut to the interview center, the SummerSlam sign fell down! Hilarious. "Mean" Gene jumped out of his suit and blurted out some expletive. All kinds of crazy happenings in this one. "Macho Man" kept talking about the cauldron of madness, "Hot Rod" said he was going to eat a garage, etc. One of my favorite matches was Greg Valentine v. Hercules. The match wasn't that great, but Ronnie Garvin was the guest ring announcer. "The Hammer" had defeated Garvin in a retirement match earlier in the summer and Garvin had been doing everything he could to get under Valentine's skin. Garvin's introduction of Greg Valentine was priceless. 2) WrestleMania 1-I like the way that WrestleMania 1 builds. The first few matches are quick. Then, Beefcake/Sammartino have a well-paced match that left the crowd in a frenzy. That contest is followed by Valentine/JYD for the I-C title, etc. By the time the main event rolled around, it seemed the "roof was going to blow off of Madison Square Garden." 3) Great American Bash-New Revolution '90-I remember this being an exciting time in the NWA. Wrestling was still the name of the game. The opening bout was a tag match between the Midnight Express and the Wild Eyed Southern Boys. Doom defended the World titles against the Rock 'n' Roll Express. Lex Luger defended the U.S. title against "Mean" Mark. The main event was Ric Flair v. Sting.

    Guys who you KNEW sucked

    There were a lot of wrestlers who I knew were terrible when I was a kid. Here's a short list. Sgt. Craig Pittman Sgt. Buddy Lee Parker Cobra The Red Rooster Honkytonk Man Andre the Giant I see Brutus Beefcake popping up a lot here. I loved Brutus as a kid. Looking back on his career, he was much better before he adopted the Barber gimmick, although his promo did improve as time went by. He was a good heel, though. Andre was a scary guy. But, by the time of WrestleMania 6 I had figured out that if you employed a "float like a butterfly, sting like a bee" strategy against him, you could beat him easily. I thought that Rick Rude and Ted Dibease were terrible as well. I thought that it would be impossible for Rude to beat the Warrior at Mania 5. I switched the channel when Dibease was on. But, I have since changed my mind about both men and appreciate there work. They were definately two of the best. Rude was awesome in WCW.

    Chinese Democracy Leaks

    If you've been in the business for well over twenty years, can you still be talked about as "having a lot of potential"? Maybe it's because I'm so used to hearing the word in sports discussions when talking about prospects (once again, oyu know that place where sports intersects with music? Axl's there!) but doesn't sound right as a description of someone you're calling one of the best songwriters of the last thirty years (with which I would heartily disagree). At some point you shift from fulfilling potential to fulfilling expectations. Surely Axl Rose has done that. Do Stephen Malkmus, John Darnielle, Tom Waits, Jeff Tweedy, Michael Stipe, Bono, Thom Yorke, Morrissey, et al., have potential? Yes, I would say that they do have potential. As long as there is music to be made and they're all still alive, these people have the potential to make great music. When you take into account his songwriting skills and meticulous craftsmanship in building a song, Axl does have potential to do great things. It's impossible to fulfill the expectations. Obviously, Axl Rose's focus is on making the best album he can make. I'm sure there's a lot of reasons why it's taken so long to come to fruition. One of those reasons would surely be artistic integrity rather than fulfilling expectations or appeasing the public.

    I'm with Jaxl when he says he thinks of Axl as a" home sports team". Axl Rose is one of the best songwriters in the last 30 years and has overcome a lot of personal adversity. He has a lot of potential and it's nice to see that it's not going to go to waste. I expect to hear a lot of new songs from Axl Rose and his brand in the upcoming years and see what direction it takes. I really like the way he sounds on "Madagascar." Someone compared his sound on the song to Tom Waits. On a related note, I think Canadian Dragon and a lot of other people have it wrong when they dismiss the album because it's been so long coming. It's an excellent album.

    ECW on Sci-Fi (7/15/08)

    The Hardy's are so old. They should step aside and let some of the younger talent have a chance to shine.
