The legend of ECW announcer Mike Adamle continues to grow. The talk of the locker room this week was that Adamle recently asked broadcast partner Tazz, "Is ECW a half-hour or one-hour show?"

Powell's POV: How great is that? Adamle is said to be a nice guy, but he's still the butt of a lot of jokes due to his on-air performance and, well, moments like this. He's also become famous for disappearing backstage and no one seems to know where he goes in the hours leading up to shows.

I thought that he was a pretty normal guy backstage and just gets addled when he's on TV. Apparently all the botches stem from his personality, not nerves.

Ok, wild theory...Adamle is the Boogeyman.

* Disappears before the show for hours/hangs out in bowels of arena

* Has no knowledge of wrestling holds or names of moves whatsoever/has no knowledge of wrestling holds, period

* Can't tell time/always breaks a clock, thus can't tell time

* On ECW brand/ditto

* Is way older than he appears/ditto

“How is it that I am a good actor? What I do is I... pretend to be the person I’m portraying. You’re confused. Case in point: in Lord of the Rings, Peter Jackson comes to me and says ‘I would like you to be Gandalf the Wizard,’ and I said ‘You are aware that I am not really a wizard?’ and Peter Jackson said ‘I would like you to use your acting skills to portray a wizard for the duration of the show.’ So I said ‘Okay’ and then I said to myself ‘Mmm.. How do I do that?’ And this is what I did: I imagined that I was a wizard, and then I pretended, and acted, in that way on the stage. How did I know what to say? The words were written down for me in a script. How did I know where to stand? People told me where to stand." -- Sir Ian McKellen, Extras

Impressive hypothesis. Me I just prefer to think Adamle lives his real life real life the same way he acted in the groundbreaking séance episode of the Dirt Sheet, in a performance so astounding that it should've made him Miz and Morrison's full-time manager.

Honestly? I don't know why MMA is even being discussed, since I sincerely doubt Angle would have been medical cleared to compete to begin with, let alone pass any drug tests. This makes me sick to my stomach, in all honesty.
