1. MXPW is the worst promotion I've ever seen on TV. Norman Smiley is champ? Chaz is booked in an angle with him? Why? They signed on Alex Porteau? I haven't seen him since the Global Wrestling Fed days. What was "Hustler" Rip Rogers busy?

2. Raw and Smackdown both need that super angle. Something in the vein of an NWO, but minus the time consuming nature.

First of all, Norman rocks all! He is actually a really good wrestler who just never got a break in my opinion. Same for Alex Porteau (sp?) Niether of them got the breaks I thought they deserved. And Chaz's best work was in Low-Down, the pre Tiger ali Singh version.

Hey he was a hot WWF rookie in 1996 and I remember he showed up in WCW in 1998 and did some C-shows.

Didn't he go by Alex "the Pug" Porteau?

I find MXPW to be better than the IWA show that precedes it on Sunshine Network but not much. I kind of dig Norman Smiley as champ (I've always marked for him), but his heel turn during the finals match was just completely out of nowhere. The week before he consoles the guy he defeats and raises his hand... and then destroys his next opponent backstage? Talk about bi-polar...

It also didn't help matters that Norman got one offensive move in during his first-round match - a rollup into a pin on The Warlord, who treated Smiley like a jobber the entire match. Speaking of The Warlord, THIS is their big monster heel? Oy vey...

Still, any TV wrestling promotion based out of Florida is good for me hee hee.

Aldo, I catch MXPW up here in Wisconsin and the IWA. Ya gotta love Digital Cable! Is there any schedules of when it is shown? My personal MXPW favorite is Mr. Education! A brother with a cap and gown as a gimmick. That is too funny. (Now, I can make fun of a brother in a cap in gown because I was one a couple of times)

Hell, we can top that gimmick: Balls Nakanaka. A white guy who thinks he's South Korean, complete with the cone-shaped hat, Asian entrance robe, and South Korean flag.

Hilarity ensues.

In Florida, Sunshine Network has a Friday Night/Sat morning wrestling block:

10pm EST: TNA Xplosion
11pm EST: IWA Pro Wrestling
Midnight EST: MXPW Pro Wrestling

The TNA show is basically plugs and 90-second squash matches. The IWA show I don't like much because EVERY match seems to have a run-in by the commissioner (and promoter?) Savio Vega. MXPW is somewhat better, but not as good as the Major League Wrestling show that used to carry that timeslot before MLW disbanded.

Mr. Education IS pretty damn sweet, though.

There's also an extremely rotten half-an-hour show at 3:30am on some days called Women's Extreme Wrestling - it's so godawful that it makes Women of Wrestling look like WWF Circa 2000. Their commissioner is a ripoff of The Rock (not to mention his valet is a ripoff of Jazz), the women can't either wrestle OR brawl, and there's an invading group called... the pWo... oh jeez, one of these days I need to recrap that show and unleash the pain...

Asides from here, I go to www.kupywrestlingwallpapers.info. Posts a lot of wrestling walls, and they usually look pretty sharp. Every once in a while I'll hit up the Torch.
