Don't do that.

It's a pity he didn't go ahead an put over James Curtis on his way out. James Curtis is turning into the new Barry Horowitz - I get very excited to see him in the ring every two or three weeks, and he has zero chance of winning ever.

Well, I expected this, but this is sooner than I thought. I mean, Braden looked pretty awful in his ECW matches -- bad enough where I think I might go back and watch the AMW vs. New Church feud again and see if I was wrong in thinking it was awesome.

I don't like to think that anyone is being set up to fail, but giving someone the name "Braden" makes me wonder if the WWE didn't want to waste a "good" name on him.

I thought James Curtis looked pretty good, though -- he used to be in that tag team managed by Michelle McCool, right?

It's not really a surprise to you guys, is it? It may have been a bit harsh to just drop him like a toilet seat based on the one match and a couple of shitty promos, but then again the fact that he didn't get in shape, put folks to sleep with lame verbage and generally stunk up the joint made him look like a guy that didn't give a fuck about sticking around.

Seriously, that promo with Matt Hardy made me want to go off like the Angry Video Game Nerd and scream, "What the fuck was he THINKING!! ASS."






I wish I could respect the law. I can't. The law is a whore who demands payment up front, and then attempts to evade providing the service paid for.

Yes. I had forgotten that team but he was named KC James then. Their run was pretty unmemorable until someone specifically said "hey, remember those guys?" and I was like "Oh. yeah." I still can't remember the name of the other guy, though.

I was not attempting to troll it up. I didn't realize that was Chris Harris' WWE name. I don't watch ECW (actually any WWE TV these days), so I had no idea he had even debuted.

Now more than ever - Curtis apparently had a bad leg injury at the last FloridaCW show.

He debuted with a freakin' knock knock joke, it was doomed from the beginning. Being flabby didn't help. I caught his match the other night, he was REALLY struggling to get that little guy up for the suplex.

This was the shot of a lifetime to a wrestler, how could he be even LESS motivated than he was at the end of his TNA run? Now, with Storm already involved in another decent tag team, what does he do?

Wait, no, I'm completely wrong. He's fine. We're all fine.

Ah, nothing like giving someone a good go WWE. Hold him back for ages, give him one match and a bit of backstage interaction, then 'Goodbye !'.

No doubt within a few weeks we will be hearing on iMPACT ! .......

James Storm looks like he's gonna end this, wait, whose that ?, its, its, Chris Harris, he's back. Oh my God !

Storm looks shocked.

Despite what they tried to book in TNA, I always thought James Storm was the more talented member of AMW in every aspect of the game, and never understood certain folks' fascination with him. I mean, I thought he was a good hand, but not much else.

What I saw on ECW was far different. Chris Harris/Braden Walker worked, moved, spoke, and looked like an old wrestler you see at indy cards who appears for all the world to be perpetually running on fumes. It was actually depressing to watch him. It has to be something more than just a matter of motivation.

Damn, Sklokazoid, I'm glad they simply called the other eight belts the Octuple Title, otherwise that would have to be the single longest belt-name ever. And imagine getting that onto a chryon.
