-Kyle Maynard, take that Zach- This guy was born with no limbs but goes through life as normal as he can. Shows him in school writing with the ends of his elbows & it's more legible then mine(his is good, mine is really bad). He's an amateur wrestler who his parents say never got pinned(but he's still liked, HHH gots to see this kid). Show clips of his amateur wrestling & he's good he latches onto his opponents limbs & won't let go. He admits some opponents really don't know what to make of him, shows him bench pressing... He's a WWE fan, good thing he is cause WWE cams are there! He goes backstage & meets a bunch of wrestlers, including HHH, Flair, Steienr & Benoit. HBK states that he's starting to get worried with all the people who say they watched him since they were small, & Orton (YES ORTON) had a cute line about his own "highschool wrestling record was not impressive" & for the cameras to cut that part out.
-Rocking Tall opening- Troll Marc Loyd follows The Rock to the premier of Walking tall. All of Rock's co-stars use as many different words as possible to say how amazing Rock is. Rock was going to comment happily about his Ashley Scott(co-star of the movie) kiss but Mrs. Rock is standing next to him as he quickly says "No big deal, my body double did it" looking nervously.
-Vault: Bret vs. Owen, Steal Cage, Summerslam '94- Really happy with this choice one of my favorite steel cage matches of all time. Big Blue Bars Style! The drama of them diving & crawling to the door is amazing, the desperation in Owen comes through the screen. Owen hits a missile dropkick where he lands on his back, both men down Owen kips up & sprints across the ring up the cage but Bret catches him... Many battles on top of the cage. Including a superplex by Bret which knocked both guys out, Bret did some amazing acting as 3 times he tried to sit up but lays back down. Bret crawls to the door, Owen grabs the foot & applies the sharpshooter, Bret grabs his foot & reverse it. The ending is the 2 battling on the outside of the cage, punching eachother Owen let his hands out but his leg hooks in the bars as Bret jumps down for the win! They showed 12-minutes of the match, really stands up well a decade later
-Benoit beats his meat- Benoit jokes that the divas get to go to Cancun for photoshoots he gets to go hang out in a meat locker. He tells us something is this |__| small because of the cool, Oh my Shrinkish, but it's Benoit so it's still Manly! He doesn't do many photoshoots and it's an honor to be on the cover of Raw(well that's an exaggeration, or maybe Benoit is a diva at heart!) Shows him eating some nice steak at the end of the photoshoot, hope it's not Albertian!
-OTR: Rock- Loyd interviews. From UofMiami who's the best trashtalker? Rey Lewis.. Any plans of ousting Sheriff Austin? Rock says Austin 6'1 2something, Loyd says 230, Rock laughs at the idea of Austin still being 230.. Who's tougher Chris Vaughn or Jim Duggen?(HA can't believe they asked this). Rock stalls & says Vaughn, he was from the army.. Who's a better "You're fired" Vince or Donald? Vince, he started it... Which Diva should Ashley Scott go 1on1 in the ring? Trish no doubt, she brings the energy, beauty & she kicks ass. Plus they are both totally hot.. Fav. Casino game? Rock plays them all.. Co-star McDougual was a star pitcher, Rock looked good swinging a big stick, how would you do with his fastball(Loyd giggles as Rock looks sick)? Not going to even answer that.. The Passion is big flick, can the Rock doing going 1on1 with J.C? No doubt the lord wins, The Rock can't lay nothing on him LoL
-USO Award- WWE wins a Bob Hope award for good deeds towards the military, Linda McMahon is wearing a very daring dress(You go girl!) Foley wearing a tux(Still find that odd). HHH is cutting a centerstage promo(shocking)... Good WWE deeds should be remembered especially considering bad PR weeks.
Honestly 12 minutes of Bret vs. Owen in a steel cage, you can put anything else and the show will still be a thumbs up. WM X is maybe more famous but this match might be my personal favorite, but it is really close. A cage match without the need to juice yourself like crazy but getting it over with drama, psychology and athleticism, WOW, you don't see that as much anymore... Rest of the show was okay, Rock is always entertaining his 10 questions was good. The premier stuff is a little stale. Benoit in a meat locker is bizarre, but he does seem more comfortable doing this sort of Confidential stuff. Orton and HBK looked pretty decent and humble (whaaaaaat) yup I said it during the segment with the amateur wrestler with no limbs. USO footage has been seen this week on all programs already.
smark/net attack wienerville advisory stays at BLUE alert - Guarded (With Benoit & Eddie being World & WWE champions you'd expect the alert to be Green but couldn't do it due to Trish/Y2J character switches)- 3/16
Honors for Smartest thing ever written, 5th Horseman "When Victoria, Trish, Molly, and Lilian were in the ring.. I commented to my friends that all of the 4 ladies in the ring were hotter than the all 4 that are fighting over who is the hottest in the WWE"
Benoit is viewed as this bad ass guy who doesn't have to talk a lot to kick someone's ass. I believe that the fans buy it. He's the perfect 'straight man', if you will, to Kurt Angle's character and fans like that.
