So on Smackdown they tease announcer Tazz in the ring only to be replaced by Undertaker, on RAW they tease announcer Ross in the ring only to be replaced by Orton....and all that goes through my head is "why is Jim Ross wearing a tuxedo shirt? He had cuff links on. Cuff links!!! Cuff links to announce wrestling!!" Dissapointed he didn't choke Coach out with a cumberbund.
PAS: I liked the elimination tag which is shocking for a Regal match which had hardly any Regal in it. That 2 count roll up section with Eugene and Tajiri was ridiculous, I guess Eugene was studying his Jerry Lynn tapes. I also like how you can't hit the mongoloid in his head, apparently in WWE being retarded makes you Black.
TKG: The early Conway vs. Rhino sections were surprisingly good, make a nice Heat match. Eugene is no longer brawling and back to being the wrestling idiot savant, wish I had seen the international Heat as the La Resistance vs. Regal/Eugene sections were better than their match that won match of the week.
PAS: It is a shame Kane and Snitsky suck such fucking ass, as Lita has been fun in this angle. I like how this whole thing has damaged her and she is now just a vicious bitch. I once turned Rippa's next door neighbor lesbian.
TKG: Wow that brings back memories. Other guys used to brag when their girlfriends ended up with limps, I used to pride myself on leaving the scars on the inside. After years of turning them lesbian and drug fiends, I haven't ruined a woman's view of humanity in years. Nowadays I just work like a vulture picking up the women who've long since been too hardened to be hurt by anything. So yeah I really dig the hardened Lita. Her wildly swinging punches still stink but like all her really violent monkey flipish offense. The rear naked choke finishes sweet too...she needs to bring back the STO.
PAS: I was never a huge Edge and Christian fan, but this was a fun reunion tag. How long has Beniot been hitting his headbutt Harley Race style? I get the sense that is even worse for your neck the the jumping version. It looks cool, but Beniot shouldn't love the Dynamite Kid that much.
TKG: Nice jacket on Christian... they better not fire Rick Michaels as he's really the best thing about the fed at this point. Benoit has been stuck for so long in endless matches with useless but fragile rent boys; Grenier, HBK, and HHH. He's seemed reinvigorated getting to work with actual wrestlers. Edge is a lot better worker when he's working heel than when he works face. And you idiots that are voting for the Batista vs. Orton match as being better than Benoit vs. Edge are idiots who didn't watch the show. This wasn't as good as that at all. This was real simple and slow and dug it.
What Didn't Work
TKG: Jesus they have Chilly Willy under contract. Why do I have to watch Maven doing this much mic work?
PAS: Christ has there ever been an ego fuck as big as that main event? When Hogan beat 8 guys in the cage he was at least a heel. Did he kick out of Jeep Swenson and Ze Gangsters finishers?
TKG: So I'm watching Nash cut promos on Impact, someone shouts "shut up and wrestle"...Nash laughs "clearly you haven't been paying attention to my career." Damn you have to almost respect Nash...he knows no one wants to see him wrestle...delusional ass Helmsley thinks we want to see him in the ring for 12 minutes. This is like the fourth week in a row that Raw has done one of these heels with odds stacked against them main events that make the faces look like pussies. This was the worst TNA main event in the history of overbooked TNA main events. At least Jarrett has cool taste in clothing and can actually work the mic. I mean I liked the undercard tonight, but nothing was as good as HotShots vs. AMW or Zbyzsco vs. Styles. The Raw womans match was better than any of the TNA womans stuff but may not have been as good as the best Teo match.
What a tremendous show from top to bottom. I think the Bayley/Banks match was particularly outstanding. It's great to see the roster filling out with such a vast mix of veterans and fresh faces. Every time I catch NXT, I am not disappointed.
