I was watching sportscenter this morning and Orton RKO'ing Bischoff made the "Not Top 10" list this week. Kind of amusing until the sportscaster made a comment as a joke, though I dont think he realizes just how unfunny it was. The sportscaster said "The junkyard Dog could not be reached for comment." I dont think he knew that JYD is dead or not, but still that kinda sucked.

As predictable and unfunny as the writing on Smackdown or Raw may be at times, it will never be as lame as the attempts at humor and hipness made on Sportscenter. When everyone on your network is hoping to capture the on-screen magic of Craig Kilborn, it's not a good sign.
So, that match in 1988 turned out to be a nice little hit, so Vince and the gang put it on PPV and upped the number of competitors from 20 to 30. There is still no reward here other than pride. Your announcers are Gorilla Monsoon and Jesse Ventura.
