There are few "wrestling logic" things that still manage to entertain me more than the way contracts work in the pro wrestling industry. I will always love the fact that anyone who manages to sign a contract is legally due and/or obligated to do everything stipulated in that contract, no matter what level of previous involvement they've had in contract discussion. And I loved how Cole acknowledged this as it was happening, he knew as soon as Austin caught sight of the clipboard that signing it would be ironclad and absolute.
Next time there is a contract signing for a World Title match, dudes should be running from the back to get in the ring to sign it. Why not, right? I'm waiting for the 1st 23-way dance for the title. "Hey, we all signed the contract, we're legally bound to be in the match!"

I wasn't at all offended by the segment. I figure any parent stupid enough to bring their children to watch people pretend to beat each other up are the same type of trash who keep open containers of alcohol within reach in the home, so they're not being exposed to anything new.
You're PHIL MUSHNIK, aren't you? You have just been UNMASKED!
Just saw the show. Shawn's selling of Trips/Taker was interesting. Cena's promo wasn't even close to the last one. Perhaps the lack of seriousness is due to the fact that they won't wrestle? Rock's promo last week was almost TOO intense and real to be useful if there isn't going to be a match. Sunny should be inducted by Shawn Michaels' penis. I haven't agreed thus far, but this week I got there: Cole made me FFWD most of RAW. Austin's routine is played but it's his shtick. At least for me. Can't expect him not to do it. And he was only burying Bradshaw, who won't be around forever. Also, Snooki, for what it's worth, is a much bigger star than Angelina. If you're going to get anyone from that show, her and the Situation are the ones you want. Ziggler has been upgraded to RAW, but did they have to put him over Morrison? Also, Vickie shrieking to sell her fear of Trish is...off. Trish doesn't strike me as this notorious ass-kicker who strikes fear in the hearts of the wicked.

Interesting that Jack Swagger (who came out to comfort Cole after he had the beers poured on him) didn't rush the ring to confront Austin. He's the only active wrestler out of the bunch in the segment, after all.
Must not've been feeling lucky.

Or he realized how it would play out
I was surprised that Cole didn't get stunnered. But I guess that will have to wait until Wrestlemania.

GRIZZLED VETERAN M. COLE JOYOUSLY TRIES TO PICK REF. BUT STONE COLD DOES ARRIVE, RAISE HELL, LEAVE (OH, AND SIGN CONTRACT). KICK WHAM STUNNER! BEER HIM, MAN!
CHEERS! MIKE'S AMAZING RETORT, IN BEST VINCE VOICE: YOU RUINED MY MAIN EVENT! DID JBL SLUR OR HAZE ROSTER FOLKS? THAT'S HOW DROLL CENA GOT PEARL NECKLACE.
You can assume I'm responding with the =-O face pretty much every week. I don't even understand how this is possible. The only successful anagram I ever made was 'gramming a girl's name to "Her: All-American Dyke." Which is also "Ee! Anally Dick-Ram Her." She's one of my better friends!

Ditto regarding the =-O face.
My most sucessful anagram was turning my own name into "Anal-Jammed Yaks" and I needed a computer's help with that one.
Eddie, I'd say it would be worth asking about how he will work with Tony Schiavone again. Granted, its for that 'Legends' video game, but still... after all the terrible things he said about Schiavone (and probably justifiably so)?
