I know, I don't have enough to start a thread with either. But it's important that for future reference I note a few things:

Tonight, "Marquis" became "Marcus" - also, he apparently moved out of The Animal Kingdom and now resides in Detroit. (Same th-ahhhh too obvious) Hey, wait, WrestleMania's in Detroit! HMMMMM.

"Kelly's Expose" returned with Kelly bringing along Layla (who at least has a history of shaking it prior to the WWE) and someone I've never seen in my life - I think she called herself Brooke, except she didn't know how to project and we couldn't hear her (making Layla seem like her voice would wake the dead by comparison). They did some awful, AWFUL awful awful, AWFUL "dancing" (Kim was overheard to exclaim "don't keep all three in the same shot - EVER!") and like you, the first thing I heard in MY head was Tony Schiavone throwing it to "Ladies and gentlemen...THE NITRO GIRLZZZZZZZ!!!" It certainly helped that they picked a Nitro-era "hot hit" (Ice Cube's "You Can Do It," from 1999) for this performance. What is DJ Ran doing these days?

Why would Sabu be allowed in the Rumble if the only way he can eliminate somebody is to be a dumbass and take himself out at the same time? Also, that match featured some of the most blatant spot calling and time cues between the refs on the outside, Thorn and van Dam. I would say it was misplaced ring mics but I think the ring wasn't extra loud so much as the crowd was extra quiet. Which ALWAYS bodes well.

Why would (2) they let Matt Striker out to do commentary and not let him get a word in edgewise? (Kinda sounds like Tazz isn't as "cooperative" since word's gotten out about his contract status) - incidentally, I thought Striker was in the Rumble, but he doesn't appear to be in it at the moment - unless they've changed it again - I'll go check later. Maybe I care.

Was Hardcore Holly even there? They only showed him in that backstage clip.

And I think those were the high points. Or should I say LOW POINTS AH AH AH AH AH your thoughts (if indeed you have any)?

From the report I read, he wrestled Chavo in a dark match. Since the show was from Alabama, I wondered if they pulled him out of the main event for fear of him getting a larger face pop than Lashley.

Pretty blah show. I thought that CM Punk vs. Elijah Burke would be something pretty good, but it got really boring.

I never thought I'd say this, but when is the "new" Snitsky showing up?

I don't get the change in main event given that it ended so decisively. The PPV match has to be altered now, maybe a three-way with Holly. Test is doing a fine job (pardon the pun) lately, and he wouldn't be a bad champ for that roster.

I noticed Tazz referred to the Pounce as a "misdirected" shoulder block. This despite the fact that the name of the move is written on Marcus's shorts. This is the second time he's used the same sequence to end the match -- butterfly suplex, pounce, russian legsweep, knees to face, and armbar.

The show was in Alabama, so there's a very good chance they realised Holly would have gotten a face reaction and adjusted the booking accordingly.



To those who say people wouldn't look; they wouldn't be interested; they're too complacent, indifferent and insulated, I can only reply: There is, in one reporter's opinion, considerable evidence against that contention. But even if they are right, what have they got to lose? Because if they are right, and this instrument is good for nothing but to entertain, amuse and insulate, then the tube is flickering now and we will soon see that the whole struggle is lost. This instrument can teach, it can illuminate; yes, and it can even inspire. But it can do so only to the extent that humans are determined to use it to those ends. Otherwise it is merely wires, and lights, in a box.-Edward R. Murrow

At first glance, I thought "Brooke" was the "Other Gal Not Named Midaja" who used to come out with Scott Steiner around 2000. But she'd probably be well in her 30's by now.

..and I guess "exhibitionists" now simply means "crappy dancers". Isn't the tease supposed to be that they might, gasp, get nekkid?! Nobody took off so much as a glove during that sequence. As DJ Ran would say: "if you don't wanna' see this again, Make Some Noise!"

During the mini-Rumble there was some dead air after Thorn was hung up "like Spider-Man in a web or somethin'". I cringed and thought: "oh crap, Tazz is gonna' say something". Yup, he responded with "is that whatcha' call it-- a web?" He's like a drunk playing with a cigarette lighter outlet, you just know something stupid's gonna' happen. You can even tell when it's gonna' happen, but you can't stop it.

She was in the Diva Search class of 2006.

Man, Tazz really, really sucks.

As did that show.

If they gotta bench Bob Holly to protect Lashley's heat it may be time to re-think the experiment.

RVD picked a horrible time to be in Vince's doghouse. With Helmsley going down you would think this would have been RVD's time to step up and shine. Of course it's not and he won't, but ECW's chances at success really died with that arrest.

The stuff ECW is currently putting out is kind of embarrassing for such a big company, but I guess if you think about it as the old Superstars show with their own title it's a little better.

'Iron' Mike Sharpe would have been a star on this roster.

Boston Legal got bumped for the State of the Union and I *still* managed to not realize until hours afterward that I had missed tonight's show.

I don't read news sites, how have the ratings for ECW been since the renewal?

This was easily my least favorite ECW since they started this little project. I think they could easily blow this up, and give it a nice little blow off at WrestleMania, and then reshuffle the rosters.

Ratings are steady as she goes. 1.5 this week. It generally hovers in the same area. I can't imagine that 1.5 being driven away if they haven't already been. The show, by ratings, is a success but it doesn't seem even like E creative is too fond of it anymore.

And too, they have several months left on their deal with Sci-Fi, so as long as the ratings maintain, I would expect more ECW.

Did anyone else distinctly hear RVD say to Kevin Thorn something along the lines of hold onto the rope and I'll try and push you over ?

This happened moments later. I recall Ken Shamrock having to prompt his 'sister' Ryan to slap him a few years ago.

Not too long ago, Punk audibly told Thorn to pull him away from the ropes while in a boston crab. Because Thorn didn't do it to the first time, Punk had to tell him oncamera twice.

Yeah, I think I said something about that in post #1. Thanks for reading!

They go out of their way to say the longest reign in NEARLY a decade every time they mention this stat, so I don't see the problem.
