Sorry for the sensational headline but since this is my first post after being a Wiener for 169 days and a reader for a lot longer, I wanted a few people to read it.
And it's true. I was at the Smackdown house show in Edmonton on Sunday night. The match results are easy to find elsewhere but a bud and I hung out for a bit afterwards and saw a few funny things that probably aren't posted.
Rey came out after the show and jumped into a big 4x4 and proceded to back into Mr. MacMahon's limo. He hit it on the front driver's side corner hard enough to rock the limo and then drove away without stopping. I was on the other side so I couldn't see the damage, though it was probably pretty minor. The limo driver and some of the crew were checking it out after and laughing.
I also got a kick out of seeing Eddie "low-rider" Guerrero come out of the building and jump into a mini-van, as well as seeing Nidia and Sable drive off together.
As an aside, there were two things from the show i wanted to mention: Nidia did a great job in the bikini contest. She was an awfully funny temptress, horribly doing all the bump and grind type moves and then trying to bribe the MC after she was booed by the crowd. She made a typical T&A scene into a funny, enjoyable segment and stole the show from Dawn-Marie and Sable.
The second thing, as much as it pains me to say it, was that I saw a good Billy Gunn match. He bumped and sold like crazy(believably even), didn't blow any moves and actually justified the huge(?) pop he got for his entrance.
he wasn't wearing a mask, but I didn't figure WWE had a lot of 5' tall guys running around. I wasn't really close to him but when he turned around it sure looked like the little guy I used to see on WCW but without the horns. If you posted something earlier, could you direct me to it?
I never saw the segment as racist until reading the IWC viewpoint. I thought Hunter went out of his way to say that the reason Booker wasn't in his league was because he was just a WCW champ and a Russo WCW champ at that.
