I wonder if there will be a need for Steve Blackman without a Hardcore Title? I mean, thats the whole point for the guy. If you're not gonna have Hardcore matches (like Smackdown! should be filled with!!!) then there's no point to having a Hardcore Fighter, right?
Im still wishing that the WWE will bring the Hardcore title back and to Smackdown! (cause that show needs it)- or at least just have a lot of extreme matches for no reason (cept' ratings!) -if not, Steve Blackman will be another talent that fades into Velocity/Heat with the likes of Ultimo Dragon (seriously, is that guy still with the WWE?!) and uh... whats his name.
Originally posted by Freeway420It's not really much of an inside joke. CRZ always seemed to be a big fan of the Lethal Weapon, or at least made it seem that way through his recaps.
This reminds me of an Extreme Warfare Revenge-related story. When Adam Ryland got CRZ's permission to use his name as a commentary option for the game, Adam passed on to met that CRZ said, "That's fine, but if the game somehow makes $1 million (the game is free), you're buying me an autographed Steve Blackman kendo stick."
Originally posted by ekedolphinHeck yeah, man. Blackman had all the charisma of my left pinky toenail, but damn if the guy didn't have about a trillion ways to whoop your ass.
Plus those neon-illuminated tonfa sticks kicked ass!

I enjoy WWE shows when they're good, but that's pretty rare. SMACKDOWN! has been pretty consistent, but we'll see how UT's involvement shakes it up. To be quite honest, I am as far removed from my original mark days as I could possibly ever get.
