Another pretty good Confidential.

The Snuka interview was good, and I liked how they had a lot of the superstars praising him. It would've been better if they interviewed Foley, since he was at that classic 1983 Garden show.

The Torrie segment was good as well. I didn't know she had an eating disorder when she was young.

I enjoyed the show, too. Nothing too shocking or "must see", but fun stuff about my favorite form of entertainment. I was such a Snuka mark as a kid, and it's really cool to see him get the respect he deserves from the next generation.

I didn't even mind the Torrie stuff. I'm not a big fan, but she seemed nice and the small-town girl-does-good thing is cool. I kind of dread the whole "anorexia" segment next week, though...

Bradshaw vs. Big Show basketball was cute, but, boy, did Bradshaw come off like a huge ass. What a shock, I know. The way Show rolled his eyes at him sometimes made me love the big guy that much more, though. :)

Dammit! I missed this and I wanted to see it so bad...did they go over any of the Piper's Pit feud. From my mark out days, this sticks out. I wanted Superfly to just kill Piper!

Why? It's a VERY real illness and something the WWE should be commended for addressing.

ESPECIALLY in light of their stupid "fat ass" angle they've been running.

I also enjoyed the Snuka interview and I think they should have made some mention of the fact that Mick Foley was in attendence that night since it ended up having a huge impact on his whole character. If they can have a couple of more interviews like that, I'd watch (or at least tape) every week. Superfly left a huge mark on this business, but I must confess I haven't seen him wrestle much.

Though, I saw Snuka at Wrestlemania 7 putting Undertaker over in a HUGE way! Makes me wish some other guys would do a job like that to give a new guy a rub.



And that's the bottom line, because it's false! It's DAMN false!

Surely you jest right? Your reply reminded me of a quote form one of my favorite movies, Natural Born Killers:

Wayne Gale: I thought a bond developed betwen us!
Mickey: No. Not really. You're scum, Wayne; you did it for RATINGS. You don't give a shit about us or anybody else except yourself; that's why nobody gives a shit about YOU. That's why "helicopters" were not "deployed."

I doubt WWE really cares one way or the other about helping educate the public about anorexia. To them it is just a hook to bring in viewers, grist for the mill. From it's juiced up looking wrestlers (see Deacon Bautista) to the silicone boob inplants that are almost required at the door for female admittance to the WWE, I think it is safe to say that educating the public about body image is at the bottom of the WWE's priorities.


It should be interesting though having Torrie reveal how she defeated her anorexia by getting some big silicone fun bags and rolling around in next to nothing for WWE TV. That just does wonders for body image problems I imagine.

Sad, but true-- I can't help but feel that whatever WWE is planning to do with the anorexia thing, it will be stupid, ignorant, pointless and do a far deal more harm than good to the self-esteem of any young girl who happens to watch.

And it'll provide even more material for Mushnick. Joy.

Wow, I hope you give us your opinion AFTER you see the piece, too!

Confidential had an odd quality to it last week, like it was slapped together on short notice. Maybe it was because they gave the production crew a short week the week before, but it looked like they just used stuff that was in the can (The Torrie Wilson material) and stuff that was shot on Monday and Tuesday (the Snuka piece and the basketball stuff).

Still, it was an interesting show, with a lot of fun stuff in it.

It was nice to see the tribute to Snuka, but it was incomplete without any comments from Foley. Since his story is well-documented on one of his video tapes (he was at MSG for the famous splash from the top of the cage), they could have added that pretty easily, but they were probably under the gun, time-wise.

They also shot the Orton family stuff for this week's Confidential last week, so maybe they'll dig a little deeper in the library for that one.

The basketball stuff was fun and kept short enough to stay that way. It'd be cool to see them continue this sort of thing with miniature golf, pinball machines, batting cages, and other "skills challenges"--as long as they're kept short.

The Torrie stuff was more interesting than I thought it would be, and next week's anorexia story might be good for a couple of minutes of diversion, in a formulaic way (WWE Superstar overcomes adversity to become famous). It surprised me that it was as good as it was, since Torrie is one of the WWE divas I could do without, with the way she's being used currently.

But unless they put together a sequel to "Before they were stars", they're going to run out of those segments in a few weeks.

A good show, not the best Confidential, but a solid outing nonetheless. I hope that they decide to bring back "From the Vault" as a part of this show, when they have slower weeks. Might be a good way to reestablish some of their older characters with younger fans. They really need to remind people why HBK was such a big deal.

Later, Rudy

Okay, I'm going to try to defend the ladies a little here. Yes it's true Vince had an odd fascination with large chest, and Stacy proved that it's a Vince thing more then a WWE fans thing. On the most part I think most of the top girls are pretty healthy looking... Take Trish for example, she looks like a pretty healthy girl. Take the pushup bras away she looks like a normal busty girl. Trish even talks about how she has to eat or she'll bruise and even joked about it on UPN Sex on the Beach saying "how she's starving cause she hasn't' eaten anything all day and how that she wished that boom-mic was a hamburger" And she sure fills out her pants well (which BF noticed in her article...lol). Lita also looks healthy, so does Dawn Maire who was the ECW girl that was picked by WWE over the scary skinny Francine. Even how dumb and stupid Molly "fat ass" angle was the fans atleast was smart enough not to buy it, especially when she's in there with Trish who is also a healthy bodytype. And Terri get's talked alot here because she's not the norm in the WWE, she's obviously too skinny and stands out for it. Which I think it's a good sign not for Terri but for the other WWE girls because atleast someone who's that skinny is a stand out in a bad way.

IT's not necessary a good idea for any girl to look at someone from superficial world of television as realistic body types. But 14 year old looking at most of the WWE girls, she can't go alone and get a boob job in that age the worse she could probably do is stuff her bra. But the same girl looking at fashion models doing the anorexic go-go on the runways or magazine or the some of the ultra skinny actresses in hollywood. It's much easier to stick her finger down her throat in her parents bathroom. So WWE girls aren't the most bodytype for young girls to look at, but I certainly think they are better and less dangerous then fashion models and most of hollywood.

Well for my confidential thoughts

- I thought the SuperFly story was good. Interesting they even touched on his cocaine use. Unfortunately they didn't mention Foley or the coconut thing with Piper which is a classic moment in WWF history.

- I'm also not the biggest Torrie fan and find her character kind of lame but doing a "real life" Torrie segment is always a good idea the person behind the TV personality. And on the most part I like those (unless it's on someone I truly hate)

- Backstage at Undress was actually pretty good. Edgecam is much better then LawlerCam. Funny them talking about a slippery spot on the runway. The best was Edge bothering Trish about seeing what's in her bag. She went in it and said "Oh i got something you will love" she takes out this fisherman/gilligan hat she has and puts it on her head "Doesn't this look great". Edge kind of disapointed says "Urh ya it looks fine Trish" (lol) She never looked so cute.

- I like the game of basketball stuff, like Rudy stuff it will be pretty cool seeing them play other sports, I'm waiting to see a game of pickup floor hockey myself. As cool as that idea was, seeing Bradshaw again acting like a complete ass pissed me off. My god do I hate everything about that guy.

Those Cena-Masters exchanges were scintillating weren't they? I actually enjoy Masters in the ring more than Cena. It just seems like most of the time Cena most resembles an eight year old pretend wrestling in his basement.
