Every time I see the Megaman post I can't stop laughing. Simply brilliant Justin and the-w.com user Feely, a thousand Internets to you both.
The show itself is something to behold; these threads take it to the n(e)xt level. By far the most "are they seriously doing this on purpose" moment as of yet was Cole taking the phone call from his mom. HIS MOTHER. And Mathews railing on him for living at home with his mother was kicker.
They somehow top every week with something even more....I can't describe it. This goes beyond the trope of So Bad It's Good, yet I can't quite label it as surreal. John mentioned that he watches this show for the train wreck quality, so maybe that's it. You know the train is coming, you know it is going off the rails, but you can't help but watch.
I await next's week gong show, hopefully with 100% more gong.

Maybe we've been looking at the possibility of Cole being the RAW GM in the wrong manner. Michael Cole seems deeply offended when someone questions the GM, Cole seems to have become much more arrogant since the GM was installed, and Cole is the main conduit for the GM, thus giving him, at least in his own mind, more power. It is Michael Cole's MOM that is the RAW GM.
My first reaction is to the echoes of the women on the apron. That arena is dead quiet.
I think we saw four different endings there: the accidental atomic spine buster; the collision with Vickie (which in normal wrestling physics would have weakened her for a pin); the cradle; and the final sunset pin.
I admit this may be the ugliest match I've seen. But I give the stupidest single botch to Gayda (youtube.com).

Ooh seeing it for the second time and my guess was wrong. It's just a madcap series of disasters. Lance Storm was at the tapings and he said on Figure-Four Daily that the Kaitlyn/Maxine match was 1) actually edited into its most airable form and 2) a "monitor sellout," which means huge crowds backstage were congregated around the screens watching, captivated.
Of course, one could also look at it a few other ways: Perhaps the 3.7-4.1 area is the min/max region outside of MNF. Or, perhaps bringing people in isn't going to pop the ratings the 47th time as it did the 1st time.
