smark/net attack Advisory System Status is: Elevated (Holds; July 5, 2005) It's good to see that the WWE isn't backing away from Batista or Cena. There's still some questions lingering over a few of the draft moves they either made or didn't make (Jericho being a prime example), but the stage is set for a solid run to Summerslam that may send the indicator down. The longer Triple H stays away is also a plus...
The clearly white interviewer asks a black man if he can refer to him as "nigger" and New Jack is the one who lost his mind?
That hasn't been okay since Huckleberry Finn.
Yeah, I listened, but I don't call that "good radio" as Chris Cash asserts. I've never liked New Jack, but how the hell can you expect someone to give you a good interview when you insult them off the bat like that?
Oh, and the constant, "this is not a work"? Get over yourself. (Something tells me that this guy would have been asked to join the WCW announce team if this were 2000.)
Here are some more thoughts from a demented mind in Central Florida: You know, for someone who says he doesn't care if New Jack's mad at him... on the air, he sure says quite often that he doesn't care about New Jack being mad at him. And holy back-slapping and self-promotion, Batman.
Why yes, I am both a musician and a lawyer. Thanks for asking. :)

Jim: What did you just call me?! Huck Griffin: I...I thought that was your name! Jim: That is OUR word. You have NO right to use it. Huck Griffin: Hey hey hey, I'm cool, I'm cool, no problem! ...so, could you pass me the oar, N-word Jim? Jim: THANK you.
Never listened to the Voice of Wrestling program, so maybe it's not entirely fair to judge the host just based on this one clip, but...the guy's an idiot. Agreed that the "this isn't a work" and "I only cover WWE and TNA so I probably won't run into him" comments make him sound absolutely ridiculous. He comes across as a wannabe insider who's so full of himself it's disgusting. There are few things worse than smarky guys with a mic and an audience.
Anyone do a count of how many times he re-iterated that he's "not afraid of New Jack"? I like how towards the end of the interview he more or less says "okay, I'm afraid of New Jack, but I don't think he'll come to my house and murder me."
This answers almost none of your questions, but I recall one of the observer guys mentioning early on that WWE was surprised about the amount of people who were watching old WCW PPVs when the network launched.
