I personally thought JR and King were very sloppy on the PPV. They were stumbling all night. One of the early video packages (can't remember which) almost seemed like they didn't even know it was going to air. Not a good night for the good ole boys in my book.

Originally posted by canis582The E really needs to develop a new color man, not the Coach. Honky would be too much to ask, but there are some current and former wrestlers who would be excellent. Someone with a quick wit like Kurt Angle or HHH.
Triple H would be perfect, but he's most likely gonna wrestle for as long as Flair has.
How about Kevin Nash ? Out of the ring, isn't he known for having a great wit ?
Nash, however, seems to be under contract to TNA... at the very least, Alex Shelley is set to "interview" him on the next Impact.
Back in the day, the WWF didn't really employ guys who were strictly color men -- it was kind of a rotating cast of wrestlers recovering (or failing to recover) from injuries (Jesse Ventura, Roddy Piper, Randy Savage, Curt Hennig) or moonlighting managers (Bobby Heenan pre-neck injury). I don't see why they can't use this same strategy now -- it might be a refreshing change of pace.
If you're looking for new blood to fill the role full time, Chris Jericho might be a good choice after he's been knocked around Hollywood a bit longer.

Carlito would be great here, I think. It would seem to me that Fit Finlay would be too - and wouldn't Big Show be awesome once his ring career is over?
We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.
Call me crazy, but I think the future is in marketing this stuff as DVD's. The few ECW ones that are out there seem to sell quite well. Because of the timing, WCW never had any. There's several ways McMahon could do this (assuming he gets the ECW footage)...
