Shelton Benjamin & Charlie Haas defended the tag team titles against the APA, after Haas pinned Bradshaw following a belt shot to the head (anyone else seeing a booking pattern here?).
*** A very odd moment followed the pinfall, as Benjamin and Haas attacked the APA after the bell. Benjamin grabbed the house mic and shouted at Bradshaw, "Am I your n***er now, bitch?" and struck Bradshaw in the head with the mic. The crowd seemed taken aback and a bit confused. Bradshaw cut his usual "Shaniqua in drag" promo on Benjamin before the match, but he did not even remotely make reference to the n-word.
Wow. I guess that'll start a few rumours about Texas' finest.
...full of energy. Multi-orgasmic, if you will, in a cosmic sort of way."
Originally posted by Scott SummetsDidn't Booker once tell Hogan something like "We're coming for you niggas!"? I doubt that Shelton was shooting on Bradshaw, because if Bradshaw was really racist, would Farooq/Ron put up with him?
I have to agree with that statement. Ron Simmons does not seem like the type of dude you wanna fuck with. I think he would mess Bradshaw up no problem
Between this and the story about Vince stopping a match because he was bored and wanted to start the bikini contest, it seems to me like they're just taking Crash TV to the house shows in an attempt to revitalize business. Throw in Christian winning the IC title (even though there's a legit explanation for that) and I, for one, am a lot more likely to shell out for a WWE house show now.
I thought it was Stevie Ray who said "nigga." Ah well. The look on Stevie and Sherri's faces was priceless, as was the look on Booker's when he realized what he'd just said.
With Shelton and the house show, to me it sounds like "creative" is testing the waters for bringing That Word into play. Either that or Bradshaw called Simmons "mah nugga" or something. If it's a shoot it doesn't sound that serious.
We've been having a pretty awesome month of Impact. Since the last time we had an Impact thread plenty of fun stuff has been going on. Key moments that I can think of have been: The Pope has returned to us as a color commentator.
