I had my TiVo grab Regis & Kelly today for the Triple H appearance. (People don't actually watch that show, do they? Yeeeeesh!) He got 2 segments, about 4 minutes before a commercial, then 3 minutes after. He was there to be his usual charming TV self, but Regis & Kelly were pretty bad. Perhaps nobody briefed them that pro wrestlers aren't "just jocks", & can give interview just fine on their own. Their opening question was to have HHH outline the Test/Steph wedding angle through the fake pregnancy. Thus pushing the soap opera aspect for the daytime viewers. Steph was standing around to the side of the set & they showed her once. After the break, they showed a water spout entrance. Regis blathered about sumo wrestlers. Regis blathered about not getting the concept of 3 wrestlers ending up with 1 winner. Regis again asked if Vince is a good wrestler, which Hunter handled diplomatically. That was about it -- nothing exciting, really stupid hosts. But, perhaps, charming Hunter made the whole idea slightly more palatable for any moms who might have been objecting to the rest of the family getting the PPV.

Meanwhile, on the TV Guide front, I'm really annoyed. It arrived in the mail today, has 3 pages inside about Wrestlemania, but has American Freakin' Idol on the cover! What happened to the 2 WM covers that they've been showing off? What's the deal???

I wanna say this has happened before....it may be just the newstand covers that have the wrestlers on it.

Blasphemy! Who can speak ill of the on-air chemistry of Regis Philben and Kelly Ripa? I WON'T STAND FOR IT!

As for Triple H's appearance ... Meh, nothing great. Stone Cold put on a much better interview several months back (he even put Regis in the Million Dollar Dream!).

I caught Ric Flair on Cold Pizza the other day. Pretty boring interview. At the end of the segment all the hosts were telling Ric they were surprised at how subdued he is in real life. Then he got into charecter and started chasing the hosts around trying to put them in the figure four. All in all not a bad segment.



"Seriously, guys, I know how you feel. You know what this promo needs? More me. Mememememememememe. I am. I am. Iam. I am whatever you say I am. If I wasnít, then why would you say I am. In the news, the papers, every day I am. I am. Iím. Holy crap, I can talk for as long as I want, canít I? They just donít have the heart to cut me off. Letís see. What else can I talk about? Oh! You want to know what I did this weekend? Stephanie and I were in Boston shopping for tea kettles and." - Excalibur05

Rock was on Leno last night (Thursday). He got a nice long pair of segments, & Leno's good with him. It was good, but it wasn't one of Rock's killer-good showings. (I was wondering if he was a little worn down from too many appearances or if he was a little bit sick. Something.)

On the fashion front, he had his shirt unbuttoned several buttons, & the new tattoo now peeks (more like lurks, actually) out from underneath. And he didn't seem comfortable in his black suede jacket. (Which looked too big on him & didn't hang properly. Hate it when that happens.)

He had one story about being out in his car, haveing a carload of women spot him, pull up, go crazy. Except they thought he was Vin Diesel.

They talked some about dad & granddad. Jay's staff came up with some photograph when Rock was about 13 -- he was a very pretty girl, pre-puberty. (I didn't actually believe it was him til he admitted it.)

After the commercial, they talked about him having gotten a new Ford F350 truck. "I can't fit in a Ferrari anyway." He did lose some weight for the film -- he said 10-12 pounds (but it looks like more to me). Junk food, glazed doughnuts, "I could down about a dozen at one sitting."

Moved into talking about the movie. He was telling us about the film clip scene. They were filming this scene where he's supposed to smash the tail lights on the bad guy's $100,000 Porsche. They did the scene, he whacked the tail lights, they're done, & ... silence. No "cut", no "nice job", nothing. He's thinking to himself, "Wow, they must just be blown away." He asks the director, "Kevin, any notes?" After a long pause, the director gets on the bullhorn & answers, "I'm not too sure if you were actually supposed to smash the Porsch'." He looked at the Porsch' & it was totally damaged, so he asked the director, "Did we just buy this $100,000 car?" Long pause, director talks to the producers, finally the director answers, "That's affirmative, Rock. Thank you -- very much." He didn't say who gets custody of the Porsche now.

Most interesting factoid: Not one mention of WrestleMania.

I always found his comments belied an intelligence (just in terms of sentence structure and grammar) far beyond what I would have expected from a guy who wanted to make up half of his vocabulary.
