He just cut a promo on the Raven vs. Sandman "Clockwork Orange House of Fun" match.
He was dressed as as follows:
Grey sweatshorts and black referee stripes painted on his upper body...
He told Raven that he was here to witness the most violent match in wrestling history and he expect Raven to actually hurt someone tonight. Then he threatened Raven that if he didn't the gates of hell would open and consume him.
Guess this means the Dungeon of Doom is back???
On a positive note Lynn vs. Super Crazy has been primo for the last 5 minutes...
I'm surprised we didn't hear Kevin Sullivan SHOOT on Chris Benoit. Man, this week's TNA was bizarre and, often times, bad.
First of all, SHAME ON VINCE RUSSO for bringing up Curt Hennig's name to get over one of his bullshit pseudo-shoot angles. I guess that puts him on the same level as Piper.
Nice to see Super Crazy back! So Konnan brings in Juvy one week, Super Crazy the next, I guess that means someone else is coming in next week. WHERE'S LA PARKA?!?!
Raven's Clockwork Orange House of Fun match turns out to be another name for "Hardcore match". No problem with that. Raven and Sandman entertained me for a good couple of minutes.
I didn't recognize Disgraceland as Luther Biggs (Coach Buzz Stern's (a.k.a Glacier) overweight protege) until I read Meltzer's recap. I remember this lumbering fatass from the old days of Thunder! (God, I'm such a nerd for remembering that!) Who gave this fatass a new job?!
Holy Promos, Batman! Who gave Erik Watts a shred of charisma? Doesn't matter, as he'll more than likely still stink up the ring. But what the hell was the eventual point of the promo? Jeff Jarrett held him back?! WTF?! Is he trying to say that Techno Team 2000 was held back by Double J, the wrestling country singer? That's YOUR Comedy Moment of the Week!
Notable by their absences: Low Ki, Christopher Daniels, Spanish Announce Team, Vader, Road Drugg, etc.
In other words (other than Super Crazy's surprise appearance and subsequent match with Jerry Lynn), this was NOT a show worth my $10, so I feel ripped off!
I think Brian (and Scott?) quit the same time their father did. (Disclaimer: I'm not really paying attention and the story seems to change every week)
Storylines, or real life? I've been delighted to not be seeing BG on my TV for the last few weeks, and noted the absence of Scott, but I wasn't aware that Bob had actually, really quit when he left the storylines.
fuelinjected -- yes, I agree. I was expecting Psicosis this week, actually, having forgotten all about Crazy. Also, bringing back El Dandy and Silver King as a team would be exciting to me. Someone (Borash?) on the TNA website also namedrops Ricky Marvin, which would be awesome. Unless he said Ricky Martin. Uh oh.
After suffering through not only the Three Faces of Nepotism in an interview so bad the crowd was chanting "we don't care" but through more technical difficulties than a public access broadcast done by confused banana slugs, I was left with only two observations from this week's episode of "As The Russo Turns"
- Super Crazy seems to have taken the "Deceptively Stocky Luchador" title from Silver King
- I would pay $10 weekly for 2 hours of just staring at Trinity.
- The Quick and Dirty for TNA Impact 2.5.9 from the Impact Zone. - The show opens with highlights from last week's edition, including that shot of Samoa Joe that closed out last week's show. - The MEM hit the ring to talk about things.
