Now that first 30 min of SD was entertainment. HHH was actually ripping off lines from that dude that smashes watermelons and crap. I think his name is Gallagher. Anyway just my thought on that segment.
I don't remember hearing that. Of course, I couldn't hear anything over that damn hick in the corner shouting "You get that durn thing, son!" at HHH. I kept waiting for Hunter to turn around and clock him. I also like how the sledgehammer broke, and they'd thought in advance to set out a backup.

HHH could channel every deceased comedian's spirit in the entire existence of humanity and I'd still think he was the least interesting thing on Smackdown. That or the wackiest thanks to his new "Possessed" Gimmick.
I've grown to enjoy the semi-annual "HHH hits things with sledgehammers on "Smackdown" and they DON'T BREAK."
Just what you want on TV to show what a tough guy you are.
Anyone remember the joy of seeing him bash the Undertaker's motorcycle with his sledgemhammer and doing no damage and being all like, "Mjolnir will not break thine cycle? I say thee NAY!" and dumping it off the stage. You can debate the irony that both events built up to a HHH/UT match at your leisure.
And of course tonight--same thing, only watching him fight the table and lose was surreal. If only it had fallen apart when he flipped it over it woulda been so so perfect.
And "$50,000 cameras?" No wonder business is bad. Vince shops at the same place as the US Department of Defense.
Triple H is a freaking cancer on the business. It's fitting that Austin was on RAW and Trips was on Smackdown, because that way, each show had it's own cancer. Austin never once put over anyone. In the Rock's book, the Rock talks about how he never would have looked good if Austin hadn't wanted him to when they worked together, but I've yet to see him ever make Rock look good. He only lost to Rock at that Survivor Series ten-man-tag which doesn't count as a real job anyhow. I hate to say it, but Austin was a cancer. ANd he was garbage in the ring. The only time he was ever good as a performer was the period last year when he was a heel, and that period while artistically was a renaissance for the man, killed business. Even then, however, the man never jobbed clean. Even when he lost the title to a then-face Kurt Angle, he had his hand on the rope when he tapped. He would get the title back two weeks later. Now I ask, why in God's name would you need to have a controversial job of the strap if you're just going to get it back in two weeks anyway? Austin was always a prima-donna. If he's got family problems, tough shit. So do a lot of people. Doesn't mean they can dick over their co-workers. Triple H is the same way. Notice who Triple H jobs to. He's jobbed to Jeff Hardy, Undertaker, Hogan and Test in the last two years. Notice a trend here? He's better than all those guys. He only jobs to inferior workers, who he knows won't outdraw him. Has he ever really, really jobbed to anyone better than him in the ring? Jericho? Benoit? Angle? Even Lance Storm? Of course not! Because those guys can wrestle circles around him. Has he ever jobbed to a bigger star than himself? Rock? Sort of, but not really, and never without getting the belt back the following month. Austin? Again, not really. The 2/3 falls thing...And who won two straight falls? The heel. Trips is a HUGE cancer. And now, he's positioned to have a dominant run as a babyface, which we all know won't draw because he's been ingrained in our minds as a heel for three years now.
Oh well, one cancer down....One to go....
Haha! You said it was too small but it works for anal!
No, I know who Gallager is, but I wasn't paying close attention to the skit and was focusing on the aforementioned hick, and I didn't hear him mention the "sledge-o-matic" or whatever G's deal was. Shame, too. I would have laughed.
On a side-note, I think the whole cancer thing is getting played. For the sake of variety, everyone should start referring to the net pariah du jour as a syphillis on the business.
The first thing I thought of when I saw that segment was "Someone just saw 'Melon Crazy'." The second was "Where the hell is the remote, I have to mute this." Followed, of course, with "Must kill Cole... bitchmustdie."
And they've been overstating the value of their props for years now... and NO ONE'S CARED.
I couldn't hear that hick in the corner, Debaser... he musta been drowned out by the hick yelling for HHH to smash the belt. -_-
EDIT: Yeah, syphillis is more appropriate. Especially considering the insanity that comes at the end...

Okay, this garnered a full on spit take as I read this. Methinks I may have to change my sig now, as this may now be the new funniest thing I've ever read on Wienerville.
On a serious note I only saw a few seconds of the beating, when HHH was facing right into the camera before he was about to smash it. The giant HHHead was just too much for me to bear, so I shut off SD basically for the rest of the night.
Oh, and personally I would rather call HHH a "bubonic plague on the business" since what could be more evocative of doom than The Black F'n Death?!
How's your new love?/I hope he's doin' fine/Heard you told him that you'd love him 'till the end of time/Now, that's the same thing/the same thing you told me seems like just the other day/Gee ain't it funny, funny how time slips away? - Willie Nelson tells the truth.

Originally posted by Enojado Viento I dunno. All I think is that as funny as the HHH Smackdown Sledgehammer Follies are, they would be ten times better if HHH talked like Grimlock from the old "Transformers" cartoon.
Me, Hunter, sez bash Undertaker. Me, Hunter, sez me stronger than Taker! GRRRAAAAH!
Ooh..yeah..and Stephanie would be Swoop (the flying one who i believe hasa high pitched voice..)
"...And I use that to fuck them some place fairly uncomfortable." "What, like the back of a volkswagen ?" -Mallrats
Cancer? how about a Puss-Filled Cold-Sore on the Anus of Humanity [the business]

Speaking of HHH being funny, Does anybody Remember when Randy Savage did this crap on Nitro in Chicago a couple of yeas ago? I mean not leaving the ring until Sleezy E showed up and getting in roid rage with a chair.
I enjoyed the show this week. It was pretty straightforward, not too stupid (except for the very end -- I'll get to that), and had a little bit of good wrestling in it. It will be interesting to see how ROH's PPV affects TNA in the future.
