I went to the House Show in Providence last night and thought I'd share a lil segment with ya. Overall it was an entertaining show. Quite the Old School look to it with the two light towers on the ring post for their only light source and regular guard rails, no curtains for wrestlers to come out of etc. It's been awhile since I've seen a house show so I felt like it was 1990 again.

Anywho...... since Piper was fired on Wed, they had "Roddy Piper will not be appearing tonight" signs everywhere. So what was McMahon going to do?! Well..... we were treated to a "very special, surprise guest!!"..... Brother Love!! Brother Love did his thing for about 5 minutes when they wheeled out a paraplegic AND blind Brian Gerwitz. Brother Love then performed a miracle before us all and healed poor Brian (now if only he gave him writing skills). After Brian stumbled to the back, Vince then came out to roar of the crowd. Vince teased beating the shit out of Love but then resorted back to his heelish ways once Zach Gowan came out. Okay, here's where it got good. Vince punched Zach and stole his leg and proceeded to play "monkey in the middle" with Love to keep Zach from getting it back. Brother Love played the guitar with his leg and then, upon Vince's request, walked around with 3 legs. Vince said that he and Love were going to turn around and count to ten and that Zach had better be gone. Zach then climbed the turnbuckle and as Vince got to ten, he moonsaulted onto both of them to a monster pop. He then dropkicked both of them and legdropped Vince HOLDING his leg - great stuff. Can't wait for them to perform this on TV.

Mathches were decent at best - nothing special but the crowd was really hot for everything. They need to get back here for a tv program!

Ok that's it for me - just thought I'd share that with everyone.

I was thinking about going to that. Were there a lot of people there? How was the Brock/Angle tag match? And what else good was there on the show?


Tell me I didn't just say that.

There was about 4,000 people there. Not all that bad for a house show I suppose.

The Brock/Angle tag was good. Big pops and "You Suck" chants for Kurt. Cena was great on the mic before the match and made reference to Providence's openly gay mayor - something refering to Brock.... "You can't read write or spell, and you suck more than Cicciline at the Biltmore Hotel"....funny stuff. The finish saw Angle with the ankle lock on Show as Brock F5ed Cena for the pin.

Mr. Ass Vs. Matt Hardy was fun and we were even treated to a Diva Bikini Contest between Nidia, Dawn Marie, Torrie and Sable joined at the end. Nobody cared about Torrie - Sable chants filled the arena. Dawn Marie came in a close 2nd with Nidia in 3rd.... Torrie dead last!! She had on a grannie bikini that looks like it was made for Molly's gimmick.

Ultimo Dragon beat Jamie Noble in a spotfest. Dragon's finisher looks so sweet.

Ummm... Rhyno accidentally gored Benoit to lose to The Best Damn Tag Team Ever. Great opener for the show - crowd was really into it.

Spanky and APA defeated the FBI, and Spanky looked legitimatly hurt after the match. Hope that was just really good selling.

I think that's about it. Overall it was a fun show to be at. Crowd made it a little better then what it should have been.

Let's hope that Brother Love was just a one-time only fill-in for Piper, since I legitimately could not stand that character. Not in a heel heat way, just in a loathing way.

Over 1550 posts and still never a Wiener of the Day!

Oliva: You are the weakest link! Goodbye!

Stewie: Ahahaha. Oh God, that's funny. That's really funny. You write your own material? Do you? Because that is so fresh. 'You are the weakest link. Goodbye!' You know I've never heard anyone make that joke before. You're the first. I've never heard anyone reference that outside program before. Because that's what she says on the show, right? Hmmm? 'You are the weakest link. Goodbye!' And you've taken it and....and used it out of context to insult me in this everyday situation. What a clever, smart girl you must be. To come up with a joke like that all by yourself. Mmmmm...that's so fresh too. Any Titanic jokes you want to throw at me as long as we're hitting these phenomena at the height of their popularity. Mmmm? Cuz i'm here God you're so funny!

Seriously, the name of the blind kid was Brian Gerwitz? Strange.

I read in one of the reports that after the main event, Angle, and Lesnar had a hilarious conversation.

Anybody want to confrim that?

I was at the Augusta, ME house show last night.
Vince was getting some real face cheers from the crowd until he began insulting them. "You Maine people have something in common with Zack, he's physically handicapped and you're all mentally handicapped!" It was strange seeing him at a house show. They also did the Brother Love healing bit (though not with Gerwirtz) and the crowd was hating it.
Brother Love to Zack: "Are you growing a new leg, or are you just happy to see me?"
It was strange to see two grown men playing keep away with another man's leg. I felt embarassed to be watching. Zack got his revenge with a top rope move and some dropkicks.
Dumb mark line of the night:
Lady behind me: "So this will be on TV Thursday, right?"
(Um, no. The lack of a ramp, pyro, an ovaltron screen, and,um, CAMERAS would be your first clue)

It was a fun show, but the best part of the night was pulling up behind a big limo with Connecticut plates on 95 North, then me and my friend pulling up beside and honking and making asses of ourselves to get the attention of Vincent Kennedy McMahon.
(He rides a limo from Connecticut to Maine, stays long enough to pick a fight with a one-legged guy, then goes home, -what a life)
