So I'm at the county courthouse, researching some court files. My cell phone rings, so I figure it's my boss or wife and I need to answer it.
"Hello?" <----me "THIS IS WWE SUPERSTAR EDGE!!!"<----enthused voice on other end
My jaw hit the floor! Then he said:
"REMINDING YOU TO ORDER WWE BAD BLOOD, SUNDAY, JUNE 13 ON PAY PER VIEW!"
It was a recording from Dish Network. It was so campy, it reminded me of calling the number on the back of a G.I. Joe box and "talking" to Sgt. Slaughter who informed me the super-secret government code I needed to obtain a figure of him was "1986." I laughed out loud in the records room and everyone stared.
God bless the advertisers. If I ever was going to buy a PPV based on the cool promo alone, this would be the one.
"Crom... I’ve never prayed to you before— I have no tongue for it. No one— not even you— will remember whether we were good men or bad, why we fought, why we died. No. All that matters is that today, two stood against many; that is what’s important. Valor pleases you, Crom, so grant me one request: Grant me revenge! And if you do not listen, then to hell with you!" - The Prayer of Conan
I had Victoria call me this week. She didn't mention anything about the PPV but was trying to make me switch phone companies, and why did she have a Jamaican accent. That crazy Victoria.
WWE superstars calling you to sell you stuff = Good. Highschool students calling you to sell stuff = Bad... If these companies that sell through the phone can get WWE superstars to call us up for it, those companies will rule the world!

The really sad thing is, Pettengill was actually ahead of his time. Had he come along in 2000, he could have easily played the Michael Cole role and HE could be the one reading Raw GM e-mails every week.
