Thanks, thecubsfan. I should have thought of cleaning it up.

Hey! What about the Midnight Express in 1997? Bombastic Bob and Bodacious Bart should be just as relevant as the pre-1986 MX.

Oh, no. you. DIDN'T!

Geez, the gimmick was so awful! I really think that's the reason Holly continues to get pushes to this day. Every time he sinks past a certain point, he clears his throat and gently reminds Vince about Sparky Plugg and the MX...

Even Bart is over in Japan right now getting a hella Gaijin push because the MX period is PROOF the guy'll do ANYTHING for a paycheck.

And people wonder why Cornette vows to live longer than Vince for the single purpose of being able to piss on his grave...

Um... no.

A) Michael Barton (the former Bart Gunn) has pretty much fallen off the map in Japan. He hasn't had anything resembling a push in years.

B) Cornette never said that about McMahon(The late Michael "Hawk" Hegstrand did.) He WORKS for Vince McMahon and has always to my knowledge spoken well of him. Cornette may however have said it about Vince Russo.

I want this for Christmas. This will sound even stranger to my girlfriends mom than the "PRINCE LIVE AT THE ALLADIN" dvd I asked for last year!

Odds that if you leave this gift up to your GF's mother that instead you'll get a prison drama about Turkish heroin smuggling: 5-1.

Michael Barton the former Bart Gunn may not be getting any sort of push but he did knock out the current WWE champion, Bradshaw. That just tells you that legit shootfighting and "wrestling" are worlds apart.

Actually, she is really on the ball when it comes to crap I like. SO, hopefully I will make out okay and not have to buy it on my own!

Okay, you don't want to include the "Bombastic" Bob and "Bodacious" Bart era but what "Ravishing" Randy Rose? And when you think about it, since Holly and the another Gunn are teaming together, why don't they revive the MX. Billy Gunn suits the "Bodacious" monciker more so than Bart and he looks like "Sweet" Stan.
