I think that's what it was called. Regardless, this is a fine example of what is wrong with a lot of smarks. Just because some kid doesn't know shitty wrestlers from 10-15 years ago means they aren't a good fan? That makes absolutely no sense. Are we to mock kids in 15 years that don't know who Albert or Road Dogg are?
I didn't read it the same way you did. I thought it was a humor piece where the author made fun of himself for harping on midcard wrestlers from 10 years ago. I thought it was too silly to be taken seriously. I also laughed and thought it was funny. It was funnier than the jokes at the end of my column.
I was late starting the tape, so if anything happened before the opening pyro (like packages, whatever) – who cares? We are in Grand Rapids, Michigan for the first Smackdown! since Paul Heyman’s departure!
