Did anyone else see Samoa Joe, Frankie Kazarian and Curry Man on the Comedy Central Show Distraction? They are really starting to be on other shows... which will get them more publicity, which I hope is a great thing for them to become a great competitor to WWE.

Hee, Samoa Joe and particularly Kazarian were nasty.
For anyone who doesn't know what Distraction is, it's a game show in which contestants have to answer questions while being seriously distracted or having to achieve a painful task. For example you hit the buzzer and someone smashes a bottle over your head, or you're getting a tattoo or something.
In this particular segment, Curry Man, Samoa Joe and Kazarian were brought in to each beat the crap out of one of the three remaining contestants while they had to answer questions out of a sixth-grade textbook.
None of the contestants could fight back (though I don't think that was an official rule, but seriously-- it'd just get them hurt worse). And the host insulted each wrestler to rile him up before each bout.
By the way, each contestant was wearing protective headgear, and they were wrestled on thick amateur-style wrestling mats.
Curry Man threw his guy around quite a bit, but the contestant managed to answer five questions correctly. Samoa Joe beat the crap out of the female contestant he was assigned, though it was clear to me he was going a little bit easy on her-- on one scoop slam, he slammed her down from waist level when he just as easily could have done it higher. (Then again, she was a woman, and the goal here wasn't to seriously hurt any contestant).
The third guy got whooped up by Kazarian, and at the end Kazarian applied the one submission move that was used the entire segment-- a half-Boston crab. The male contestant immediately tapped out just as the buzzer was ringing, and Kazarian promptly released the hold. Dunno if he did it 'cuz time expired or because of the submission, though.
Fun episode, and hey, if I'd known those guys were gonna be there, I would have recorded it and recapped that bit for ya'll. (Or if I'd thought about it when I saw them. Oh, well.)

Curryman mask and tights. I was secretly hoping the guy he threw around would flash the Fallen Angel's hand sign. :-)
They replayed the show late last night which was when I first saw it. Samoa was grinning the whole time he worked the girl over. The highlight for me was Kazarian using something like the Stroke, but since the guy didn't know what was going to happen, he kind of rolled through it.
