    WWE Monday Night Raw.. Three 4 All!

    The thing with the Trump angle is this: How and why did Trump only buy Raw? Why would he buy one of three WWE shows and not the other two that are actually decent? Why not just buy out Vince entirely and become the owner of WWE? The troubling aspect is that Vince will now likely end up on SD if he stays on TV at all, and that show has been solid lately. This Orton/HHH feud desperately needs to end. I'll give them till Summerslam where I would think they might have a final HIAC match or something, but after that I never want to see those two guys feud ever again. These guys have feuded on and off for 5 years and have had maybe one above average match (the LMS from Oct. 2007).

    WCW Clash Of The Champions 18

    Yeah this was a fun approximation of WCW circa 1992. Some solid wrestling, some goofy and bad gimmicks, some guys who had yet to hit their stride. The most amusing part of the show was how blatantly obvious it was that Luger was a lame duck champ. He phones in a taped interview segment instead of being on the show to sign the contract and is rarely mentioned. I didn't start watching wrestling again until a month or so after this show aired, so it was fun to catch up on a few things.

    WWE Releases Mr. Kennedy

    Yeah I noticed that on Raw as well and thought it was really weird. It was like Orton was flat out legit pissed. On the Raw thread I joked that a potential Kennedy/Orton feud would be such a nightmare that it can't possibly happen. Frankly, Kennedy should have been released a long time ago. He was already injury prone but once he was suspended in 2007 and was removed from the whole Vince storyline that should have been it for him. Kennedy always was a one note gimmick, screaming his own name at the top of his lungs.

    The OaO Monday Night Raw Thread!

    This Raw tonight now has me terrified of an Orton vs. Kennedy WWE title feud. There's no way they can possibly be serious about that, right? There's only so much that people can endure.

    American Idol Season 8

    I actually hope Paula comes back. Simon/Kara just have no chemistry. Simon/Paula is amusing in the "Oh just have sex already!" vein, whereas Simon and Kara just seem like two people who don't like each other. Anyway, the right guy won. Kris Allen mostly won by not screwing up and not being annoying. Once this thing got down to the final 4 or so I asked myself which of these people I could actually imagine myself listening to. I can't imagine listening to a Danny Gokey album, and I couldn't stand listening to Lambert's high pitched screaming over 12 tracks. I liked Allison the best, but at least Kris Allen could be a somewhat successful white bread soft rocker like Jason Mraz.

    The OaO Raw Thread For 5/11/2009~!

    I have tickets for Raw next week too, so I get to endure an hour of Legacy/Orton promos and tedious handicap matches. Right now though? There's just nothing on Raw worth a crap. Vickie is an awful fit as GM on the show since once you take Edge away from her there's no real basis for her being a heel. On SD we understood why she was a heel since Edge is her man, but she's not the sort of ultra evil person to screw everyone over. Second, if you want to bury everything on the undercard then the main event stuff better be off the charts. But this Batista/Legacy stuff? Bleh. Batista is such a blatant lame duck challenger, only being #1 contender due to beating Big Show by countout. Is there anyone who thinks he's going to win the title on Sunday? Further, is there anyone who thinks Orton would beat him clean to get something out of it?

    Star Trek XI

    I'll see this today at either the 1:00 or 1:30 showing. But here's a question that needs to be asked: Does it really matter if the Trekkies love this movie? With Nemesis we found out exactly how many total die hards the series has (43 million dollars domestic, 24 million overseas). So it's not like they should be catered to at the expense of a mainstream audience. I actually rented the various Next Generation movies yesterday and watched Generations and Nemesis. Oddly enough I thought Nemesis was easily the stronger of the two. It's hardly some Batman and Robin type movie that should wreck a franchise for years.

    TNA Impact 5/7

    Doesn't Sting have a contract that runs until the end of the year? I'd think they would save his final match for BFG. Have they said yet who runs the Mafia if Angle loses the match?

    NWA Weekly Programming Thread

    Yeah Nikita vs. Flair was a strange main event for Starrcade but it was due to necessity. Not only is it a curious match but it's a Catch 22, since Koloff had just turned and was US Champ, so they weren't putting the belt on him, yet he just turned and couldn't afford a high profile loss to Flair. And that's why DQ finishes were born. But then they booked a DQ in the main event of the biggest show of the year.... This is going to sound nuts, but am I the only one who actually enjoys the Valiant/Jones angle? I've mentioned in the past on here that Jones was a mediocre manager, but this angle was nowhere near as awful was reputed. But then Valiant has always been more popular in my area (Memphis/USWA) than he was anywhere else. Still, it's harmless midcard antics with a goofy face up against an army, friends betray him and take money, etc.

    Manny Ramirez

    Yeah, read between the lines. It was a fertility drug where the main reason a man would use it is because he's cycling off the juice. As far as this tainting the Red Sox 2004 and 07 teams, I don't really think so. If Manny had been caught doing this with Boston, then maybe so. But there's no way of 100% knowing that he was doing this stuff while with the Red Sox. As in maybe he hooked up to some BALCO type group in L.A. Besides, how can a Yankees fan be so thrilled about it tainting the Red Sox, when Roger Clemens was likely doing roids for a couple of World Series winners?

    American Idol Season 8

    I quite liked Allison so it was a groan worthy moment that she was eliminated while Gokey survived. The only thing I can figure is this dude is getting the sympathy love due to his wife dying. He was hideous doing "Dream On" and should have been gone.

    WWE General Discussion - May 2009

    Mainly it was just Austin that got hurt due to the Owen piledriver. That was a crazy sit down Tombstone type move though, not a solid and protected UT variety. The stuff that really sucks for wrestlers are moves like German suplexes. In Foley's book he even mentions that he didn't care about taking a bump, but didn't like someone giving him a bump that resulted in him hitting his neck and head hard on the mat.
  13. Thing is, Schiavone was never that great of an announcer...it was just that he was better than the goofy David Crockett and largely just held a mic while the various awesome guys of the 1980s NWA cut promos. Half of the stuff he said was "We'll be right back, fans!" Then after that he worked some with Jim Ross and was adequate enough to not seem horrid.

    Vince wants a Wednesday Night show

    There's such a thing as too much wrestling from one promotion though, and yet another WWE show would be a bit much. WCW fell into this same sort of trap in terms of having way too many hours of TV, and at its peak WCW had a much bigger roster than WWE today.

    NBA Offseason chatter

    I don't think Game 7 tomorrow will be like that Hawks/Celtics series last year. Boston waxed them in all 4 wins in that series, while the Hawks won their 3 games each by less than 10 (9, 5, 3). As far as this current series goes, this may well be the best NBA series I've ever seen. Either that or the 2002 Lakers/Kings series, but that one is marred by the dubious (even outright corrupt) officiating.
