has anyone else checked out t6he new WWE magazine? I was thumbing through it and it looked good so I bought the first issue at the news stand. I was actually pleasantly surprised. i might actually like reading this thing on a regular basis.
I leafed through it at Wal-Mart, and it looked pretty good. Very evident that Maxim, Stuff, etc. were the models for the new mag. I actually considered buying it, the first WWE magazine I've even considered in a long while.
Very "slick" presentation, with a weird (almost off-putting) mix of kayfabe and "real life" stories.
There was one article that I found a little disturbing, the "Pay Your Respects" piece (telling you where several deceased WWE Superstars are buried). It wasn't really insulting per se (although the cartoon tombstones did seem a bit much) but the fact that they mention guys like Owen and Eddie ... well, I'm just not sure if it was in the best of tastes, is all.
I bought it because my wife adores Batista and he is on the cover.
But yeah the "Visit the gravesites" section was a bit disturbing.
I did like the Sex Question answered by the Divas and the Mickie James interview pretty good.
Are they dumping the Raw and Smackdown mag now?
www.oklafan.com Big Show: Why is he getting the Intercontinental Title shot and not me? RVD: Ahhh...maybe 'cause you're a tool. Big Show: Look. I am 7'2". I am 500 pounds. I'm a giant. RVD: Oh ok. You're a giant tool.
Smackdown's main event was nice and straightforward this week, Randy Orton vs. Christian. Christian, sadly, has started to forget about his past matches against Orton, possibly due to his life-threatening illness.
