I see Stevie Ray, the other half of Harlem heat at the 24 Hour Fitness in Houston allot. He's still big as ever. I talked to him about the "good old days" of WCW. He said some of the most fun he ever had was when he was doing the color commentary.

Right now he runs a record store, along with other business ventures. I think he plans to get back into the wrestling game someday, at least he trains like it.

I'm quite suprised that WWE never offered Stevie an announcer position. I mean, if Ernest Miller can do Velocity, I don't see any reason why Stevie Ray can't.

Ahh, Stevie Ray on color-commentary. Talk about bringing back some fond memories (fruit-booty, yaks, etc.).



The answer to WWE's financial problems...

Never 'Wiener of the Day', and is actually quite bitter about it.

Doesn't Bill DeMott occasionally bust out the "fruit booty" during commentary for Velocity?

Granted, it's not the same as Stevie...

^That brings back memories.
Ahh...fruit booty...used to be a common household word when Stevie was around. I'm also suprised WWE didn't offer him a commentator job. Stevie did a couple WWA shows a while back.

I remember when Stevie Ray stopped using "Fruit Booty," only to bring it back one last time to call Scott Steiner out for what I think became SR's "Retirement" match.
It was a happy, happy mark-out moment!

And yes, Ryan, when Rico would be on "Velocity," DeMott was known to drop the "FruitBooty" on him a few times.

I remember CRZ opting to recap an Ernest Miller match using nothing but a transcript of Stevie's color commentary.

"FEEEEEEEE-LINER!"

Awesome.



Once upon a time in China, some believe, around the year one double-ought three, head priest of the White Lotus Clan, Pai Mei was walking down the road, contemplating whatever it is that a man of Pai Mei's infinite power contemplates - which is another way of saying "who knows" - when a Shaolin monk appeared, traveling in the opposite direction. As the monk and the priest crossed paths, Pai Mei, in a practically unfathomable display of generosity, gave the monk the slightest of nods. The nod was not returned. Now was it the intention of the Shaolin monk to insult Pai Mei or did he just fail to see the generous social gesture? The motives of the monk remain unknown. What is known, are the consequences. The next morning Pai Mei appeared at the Shaolin Temple and demanded of the Temple's head abbot that he offer Pai Mei his neck to repay the insult. The Abbot at first tried to console Pai Mei, only to find Pai Mei was inconsolable. So began the massacre of the Shaolin Temple and all 60 of the monks inside at the fists of the White Lotus. And so began the legend of Pai Mei's five point palm exploding heart technique.

I still say WCW dropped the ball (I know, shocking!) on that particular brother vs. brother feud. Here you had Booker T win the world title, and instead of having Stevie Ray congratulate him, they could have started a *good* feud between the two of them that didn't involve Ahmed Johnson, Clarence Mason, Midnight, etc. Plus, it would have taken away from the controversial Hogan-Jarrett stuff from the night before.

I also agree that Stevie would be a FAR better commentator that Ernest Miller was. And Demott for that matter.

Another great former WCW announcer...Juventud Guerrera. Plenty of times he was the only reason to be excited about Thunder.

My Fondest memory of Stevie was during a show when two girls started fighting and he, in his best Joey Styles, yelled "YAK FIGHT! YAK FIGHT! YAK FIGHT!" TO this day, if I see two women arguing, I yell that phrase out loud, and giggle to myself.



Thank you for your irrelevant opinion.

My favorite Stevie Ray moment on Thunder was when he had a ring side interview with Lex Luger and said "So are you telling me and the thousands of people watching at home the truth"... Don't you usually overestimate the number of your audience, but then again we are talking about Thunder he could have been exaggeration in the positive LoL

Stevie Ray, what a legend. "Tony, lemme axe you a question", the aforementioned yaks and fruit booty, but let's not forget "It's on like neckbone!"

And the slapjack. But I guess that was more of a wrestling thing than an announcing thing.






They're ba-ack...

it's amazing how different opinions can be, even in wrestling. that's why wars are being fought. people jut can't agree. Orton blows. He doesn't have any major compelling characteristics. I dont think he's better then Booker T or RVD in the ring.
