I wish they would have showed DX in Atlanta at CNN Center signing autographs and trying to get in to see Ted Turner. Then, as we all remember, they finally found the WCW offices on some remote Atlanta road and tried to get in. Funny funny stuff. At least its on the old DX VHS video I have.

1) That Al Snow's house is the shiznit; It was funny to see that Pierre was held on higher ground than his Avatar mask. It's also nice to see that some wrestlers have a good family life outside the fed... and in the future, more crib segments would be cool. That is, except Joanie Laurer's house.
2) Nostalgia with Ace and the cast. 1 1/2 years it took that injury to heal?

eh, i used to read it back in the day
i have issues 1-6 signed by the dudes [kurt something? it's been 3 years since i've bought or read a book, selling off my 22,000+ collection on ebay...they just don't do it for me anymore]
"You can't fire a gun in a confined space! What are you tring to do, make us deaf?!" "Just get out of the chopper." "What?" "Get out of the chopper!" "The crops!?" - Jack Lemmon and James Garner, "My Fellow Americans", and the reason I say "The crops?" instead of "Huh?"
Pretty good episode. I kind of wanted to see Bob Orton Jr. with a cast on but him saying that it tooks years to heal was funny. I didn't know that it was RVD that kissed DeBiase's foot. Damn Debiase was one of the best heels ever. Snow is a bigger geek than I thought he was and his house is cool. I really got a kick out of the Avator mask being in his sons dirty clothes pile.
I just have 13 words for you. How much wood would a woodchuch chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
OH my I am SO alone on this one, I totally rolled my eyes when I saw they are going to give DX credit for a reason of WCW downturn. I was never a huge fan of DX, and I didn't like them using them as the reason for the turnaround. I guess I couldn't go an entire week without being annoyed by Triple H on TV (liked him on Monday) =)
Al Snow house fits his personality really well. Since Confidental started this is the second "IN Your House" they did (Trish the other one) and they both been very cool.
All the other pieces were nice. The run of the mill making the ad with Trish. Trish looked lovely. RVD being RVD, liked seeing him with the thick eyeglasses frams (lol) and an interesting Orton family background.
I don't get it, everyone loves rats, but they don't want to drink the rats milk?
Good show. DX as WCW's downfall was unexpected, but unoriginal, in my opinion.
Behind the Comercial with Trish. It's odd that she refered to herself in the third-person (like The Rock does) when it came to the comercial. Usualy when the do these things, the wrestler usualy says "In the comercial, I'm doing such-and such", but this time, Trish said "In the comercial, Trish is delevering Ice Cream".
Casa de Snow was awsome. Avatar's Mask, Pireir, and Head all in his house. But where's Pepper? Not that slab of meat Al ate, but the REAL dog!
Next week... We visit Casa de Booker... SUCKAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!
You aren't a very bright person, but since you always mean well and you're so likeable, people don't really care.

I didn't get that impression from that segment at all, actually. They were sort of pushing it as one of the starting points, a seminal moment so to speak, but not the end-all be-all. They actually alluded to some of the other problems during the segment- Kevin Nash in particular was making some rather pointedly anti-management comments. ("They couldn't even make a cup of coffee" and that sort of thing.)
I was, however, hoping that they'd have done a bit more of an overview of the change in momentum as a whole... but, I suppose they couldn't do that without showing some people that they'd probably rather not give any credit to right now.
And Al Snow is now, officially, the most muscular geek I've ever seen. I love it. I'd punch my best friend in the throat for some of the stuff he has. And, oddly enough, my best friend'd probably take it, gladly, just to be able to look at it. We're pretty sad. (:

They should have showed him as Rob Szatkowski-WWF jobber. I have the best match ever on tape of Rob and some other jobber getting completely decimated by Sid on his way to Wrestlemania 8 from Wrestling Challenge(Gorilla and The Brain on commentary). Rob and the other jobber get thrown onto stretchers(inside of the ring to outside) and I think one goes for a ride on it. Hilarious.
1. I don't think "Trish Stratus" is her real name, which would explain for the third person reference.
2. At first I was PISSED when they showed the DX angle, but then I remembered how great the angle really was and forgave them.
3. Al Snow is a great guy. I have a video of the 1995 SMW Heel BBQ and Al is hillarious. Plus I'm also a pack rat, so I can see where he's coming from.
4. The Orton stuff was good I guess, but I wasn't really interested in Randy Orton. A whole segment devoted to Cowboy's career would have been much cooler.
5. The RVD segment was also my favorite because he really was just a normal guy. He didn't seem to play many sports. He wasn't that good in school and he didn't have a lot of friends. Plus he beat up his teacher. Very cool.
If you guys are interested, I write the Confidential review for The Smart Marks (link in sig.), so check it out if you get a chance.
Outside of the "Legends & Icons", my non wrestling fan friends seem to know who Big Show, Chris Jericho, and Edge are. Jericho and Edge mainly because they've done a lot of PR stuff in Canada where they've been seen by non wrestling fans.
