REmember in late 99 the great this is your life Rock skit they did on raw? The official preview of raw on wwe.com is claiming its going to be This is your life Mick. Hmmm, this is going to be great or at least really good!

We'll see how it goes, but you know, going back to the well didn't work so great the last fifty or so times they tried it.

I hope no one's expecting another 8.0 rating out of this segment. "This is Your Life" was one of those spur-of-the-moment deals that can never be fully recaptured. I think WWE's setting itself up for a huge disappointment.

But the real winner here is VINCE RUSSO! "This is Your Life" was his proudest moment and when this segment fails to reach the stratosphere, it'll inflate his ego just a little further.




Edge: So Triple H wants me to come to Raw and fight him for the big gold belt. I've TOTALLY passed you on the card.
Jericho: Yeah, but while Triple H is burying you, I get to make out with Trish in front of millions. You tell ME who the winner is here, junior!

I don't think there is anyway it can top the original, and seeing's how it's for Mick Foley, everybody all ready knows his history so maybe they'll use actual people from his past. I want to see Al Snow come out so him and Foley can have some fun.

Foley+Rock+Snow=a good funny promo! As for if it is going to top the original? No, no way whatsoever. But i think that this is going to be a treat for all fans who love these guys and want to see them have some fun.

I may be in the minority of wrestling fans (as if the ratings at the time couldn't confirm that), but I absolutely HATED the "This is your Life" segment. I recall I generally enjoyed the WWF program much more than WCW, but even I had to turn to Nitro after seeing that segment go longer than five minutes.

I wonder what would happen if in '98-00, we were all told that for Wrestlemania 20, you'd have the Rock N Sock Connection teaming, Undertaker facing off against Kane, and the first segment of Raw being Austin chasing off Vince with an ATV for 15 minutes. Top off Shawn Michaels sharing a main event with his Kliq buddy and the last Raw before Mania being centered around "This is your life, Mick," and I don't know if I could believe that.

The more and more I dwell on it, the more bitter I get about the current card. Even with Austin vs Rock and Hogan vs Vince as two of the top five matches, I still had a good feeling about the direction of the company after Wrestlemania XIX. I figured those were two upper card matches, but this event was a good way for Angle, Lesnar, Booker T and Jericho to make their mark on the business. I don't have a similar optimism with the current card. Sure, Guerrero and Benoit could be on top by the end of the night, but it seems like they have taken too many steps back these past several months for a step forward like that to mean much.

And do you remember, by chance, what that segment on Nitro was that you flipped to from "This Is Your Life, Rock"??

I wonder how far back they will go. Will they mention Mick and Cowboy Bob Orton wrestling together in Florida? I still think that history would tie in nicely to Foley's current program with Randy Orton.



So sayeth Randy Stilton.

If by that question you're trying to insinuate that "This Is Your Life" was a memorable segment, well, that's a bit misleading.

The only reason I remember "This is your life" is because of how tremendous the ratings were and how all the marks loved it. If it received little reaction and the ratings were nothing special, it would not be talked about, it likely would not have been shown by the WWF numerous times throughout the year or put on the Best of Raw and Rock DVDs..and guess what? I would remember it just as well as I did the Nitro segment it opposed.

I will say that I don't remember a thing about the stupid segment. I've seen it a few times since it originally aired, and all I remember is not liking it. Isn't it just Foley bringing out someone, like Rock's old teachers or something, and then Rock spouting off some tired catchphrase? OH BOY! HE MENTIONED PIE!!

I remember watching it and waiting for the payoff, but not getting one. They bring out that clown? Great. What's on Nitro anyway?

Taz was debuting around that time, so everyone hoped thats who would be under the sheet. IT was 20 boring minutes that essentially went nowhere once you think about it.

I have a feeling we're going to be seeing "Randy Orton presents: Mick Foley, This is Your Life."

But it was the first time he mentioned pie. It was huge. I thought it dragged, personally, but I can see why people liked it.

The segment was great because it featured both characters at their peak. They were both playing up their characters to the hilt. Foley being the suck-up nice guy eager to please anyone and everyone. Rock being the cocky, swaggering asshole that you still liked because he was so damn funny. The harder Foley tried, the more of a jerk the Rock became. He went through the trouble of digging up the Rock's teachers and girlfriends and he just insults them all. Foley even got them matching jackets. It was a team of two personalities that just couldn't be more opposite, yet somehow worked because of that.
I don't think they can duplicate that moment, but it'll be fun to see what they come up with.

Of course it also featured one of the great lost Rock catchphrases:

YOU CUT THE ROCK OFF AT SECOND BASE!!!

Of all the ones that didn't quite take (Pancakes, Shut Up Juice, Rockburgers, The aforementioned Lips, Tofu) that might be my favorite.

On The Rock:Just Bring It DVD they have most of the full segment on there in a ''pop-up video'' style way, giving such interesting facts like a banner was meant to drop down at the start just before the ballons fell but it malfunctioned. Cool extra.

It's not a bad guess to expect WWE to use the Elimination Chamber at this year's Survivor Series PPV since it's been two years (although it's only speculation on my part). The question then becomes, who stands in the wings for such a match right now?
