    South Park Season 13

    I guess the commentary tonight was that women should be allowed to be juvenile and immature just like men without fear of judgment. or was it an allegory about women not being accepted in comedy? or a satire on abortion?

    The OaO Raw Thread - 3/30/09

    yeah somebody's turning in that match. Stephanie would make no sense and would be almost impossible to explain but I wouldn't rule it out. Plus they've acknowledged Orton is married in real life. Vince and Shane wouldn't make sense either Linda? Batista?

    2009 Hall of Fame

    I'll be interested in hearing Austin's speech. He doesn't like to break kayfabe much and he is very protective of his persona so it will be interesting to see how "real" he is during the speech

    March PYBO: WrestleMania IV

    Yeah I've heard the story before. He claims he blew out his knee tripping on the steps on the way to the ring. He didn't want to risk getting hurt any further so he never went in the ring

    Warrior's title reign

    The main problem was the lack of heels to work with. In the beginning of his reign he was touring the circuit against guys like Haku and Dino Bravo. That was obviously a lost cause as no one was going to buy them as having a shot at winning. Rude and Hennig were a step up but they didn't have the typical WWF main event look and no one bought them as legit contenders. Plus I don't even think the most loyal WWF employee at that time would have thought that the Hogan/Earthquake program was going to get over so well. On paper it was just a retread of the "big fat heel takes out Hogan, Hulk looks for revenge" angle but Hogan's sell job on the Brother love show was so effective that it became the focus of the promotion (yes Hogan knew what he was doing) The post attack "friendship bracelet" angle was of course so campy and corny but worked with the marks. The fans could not connect at an emotional level with the Warrior like they did Hogan

    Was Chris Kreski's run really that great?

    I would say the post Survivor Series 98 RAW to Rock Bottom build is where the Russo era really started to get convoluted and stopped being as fun. The introduction of the Ministry of Darkness and the Sable heel turn are two angles in early 99 that come to mind that really started the sharp decline and the feeling that Russo was writing to entertain himself. as much criticism as he gets pretty much all of 98 is gold and brought back a passion for wrestling that I hadn't had in nearly 10 years (although I continued watching during that time)

    fantastic episode and man you pretty much had to go to Catholic school to get all those subtle jokes

    WWE Raw - March 23, 2009

    Stephanie looked *incredible* last night. Yeah this is wrestling and we all know the weight loss since October didn't come naturally but damn

    WWE Raw - March 23, 2009

    yeah, disappointing that Stephanie is returning so soon either they are planning a swerve or she needs to be punted

    WWE SmackDown - March 27, 2009

    Apparently Rey v Chavo (Rey went over) was taped for this show also

    2009 World Baseball Classic

    David Wright knows how to win USA! USA! USA!
  12. What was so strange (but yet not really the more I think about it) about it all was how so little the people responded to Cena in the skit. Like SNL was just expecting the audience to go apeshit once they zoomed in that it was Cena or something. Instead I think I heard one person react. In all fairness to Cena, the crowd barely reacted to Tina Fey either. She even paused expecting an ovation but didn't get one. The crowd was pretty dead the whole show.

    Impact spoilers for Feb. 26 and March 5, 2009

    I've actually watched the last 2 episodes of Impact in full (instead of being in and out like most weeks) and still haven't stopped laughing. Like people were asking above, they *Have* to be doing this tongue and cheek right? There is no way that they could consider this effective storytelling and booking? Right? Right? Scott Steiner is just killing me now with everything he says

    Late Night With Jimmy Fallon

    Fey and Bon Jovi interviews were both good. (Tina and Jimmy still have incredible chemistry together) the writing and the bits have been awful so far

    Late Night With Jimmy Fallon

    Pretty rough first show The Timberlake interview was the highlight. I would agree with one of the posts above that Jimmy has a lot of problems articulating his thoughts. It's like he gets a good idea to riff on and then putters out before the bit even starts

    WWE SmackDown - March 13, 2009

    unless another big name is added it's obvious MVP is winning MITB this year. I would assume Kofi and Umaga get the last 2 spots

    WWE Raw - March 2, 2009

    I'd rather have Hogan/Cena and Edge/Big Show in singles matches at mania instead of Cena/Edge/Show but then 4 weeks of hype for Cena/Hogan just doesn't seem like enough
  20. Andy was/is a huge wrestling fan which was probably the reason Conan had wrestlers on even during the mid 90s dark ages (and of course during the attitude era) Conan once told a story of Andy reading the Observer (or Torch) during dress rehearsal

    Live Wrestling, Part II

    Discounting cameos in 1985 and 1998 this was actually Stephanie's on-air debut with the company. Truly an historic moment you experienced Al!
  22. This is of course incredible news I kind of feel sorry for Andy as ultimately his acting career failed but he was at his best on the couch besides Conan

    Live Wrestling, Part I

    semi important note Al as 10 days after you attended the event Vince McMahon was indicted for possible possession and distribution of steroids.

    2009 Oscar prediction contest

    and maybe I couldn't hear it over the song but did Chartlon Heston not get any reaction?
