Who else was irritated to no end when Uncle Eric made his "Big Announcement"? Lawler was talking about it all through the Kane/Bradshaw/Un-Americans Tag Match, and when Bischoff FINALLY dropped the bomb, "The Second Most Popular Man in Memphis" wouldn't keep his fool mouth shut. And I thought the "HYMEN" was bad! I actually felt sorry for J.R., he tried, J.R. REALLY TRIED to save the Women's Tag Match, but King kept forcing HLA down J.R.'s and everyone else's throats!

King: Oh my gosh! J.R. HLA! HLA! HLA! Hot Lesbian Action!

J.R.: I KNOW, King. Right now Trish and Stacy are locking up...

King: Is Stacy the lesbian? Are Trish and Terri gonna get it on? HLA, J.R. WOO-HOO, HLA! Hot Lesbian Action!


King: HLA! HLA! HLA!

The only time that Lawler finally got to actually calling the match, was right at The Main Event, AFTER Jamal and Rosie steamrolled the Lesbians (who took some pretty nice bumps, mind you!). Only question now is: When will Lawler get HIS 3 minutes?

Isn't it ironic seeing a guy with a "Saved 1" shirt lying in a pool of his own blood with a head-sized hole in the car next to him?

Since JR was repeatedly telling him to shut up, this time, instead of playing along or ignoring it like he did last week, I had the feeling that Lawler was intentionally doing it just to piss everybody off. Maybe they're going to lead up to Ross getting pissed off and getting rid of Lawler so they can bring in somebody else? (Perhaps an old WCW announcer just as Bischoff renames the show Nitro?) It can't hurt to dream.

They REALLY need someone to neuter Lawler. Get him fixed or something, but PLEASE spare me another "performance" like tonight. I really think they need a whole new Raw announce team. Keep JR behind the scenes where he's needed and send Lawler back to Memphis. Debut a whole new team and put DDP at color commentator or something.

I certainly agree with everything you said Thomas, and I have ranted enough about Lawler's annoying comments in other threads, so I won't say it again.

However you do bring up an interesting point, maybe they are setting up a feud between J.R and Lawler where they are sort of enemies at the commentators table. Perhaps they will have J.R. get so mad that he brings in someone else ,maybe D'lo or Coach who are the current Heat commentators, and they have three people commentating for a time. Then they could demote Lawler to a full time job of gawking at the WWE divas.

But I seriously doubt that it is a feud, most likely it was just the Lawler character taken to the extreme.

The day JR says "Shut up Beavis", and smacks Lawler upside the head, is the day I want to have JR's lovechild. Though I did find Bischoff's announcement of the upcoming HLA incredibly funny (would have been even better if'n he said it again, with the emphasis on lesbian). But, sadly, Lawler needed a good kick in the nuts. Or some saltpeter.

And, since I'm watching the raw rebroadcast on TNN, since I watched BODYSLAM instead of raw, the first time, I fuckin' love Regal. I want to have his lovechild now!

i got so fed up with lawler last week, that i inserted 4 instances of HYMEN into my sig to show how annoying he is...

this week it's HLA.

i'm just wondering how he will "top" himself next week.

and good call on the "three mins." I was sorta thinking that's how they were going to go, because i, and most everyone else, knew they couldn't "pull the trigger" on this one.

Thanks to you, Fuzzy, I have a sig. I'm sure it's an honor and a privilege... I just don't know for who.

Actually, I think they had some pretty funny stuff with this thing. I mean, the locker room labled "Lesbians", they had chryon saying "The Lesbians", and the line "Hi, we're the lesbians."

I think I would have found that stuff funny, because I do have a weird sense of humor. However Lawler ruined any chance for any part of this being enjoyable by thoroughly running it into the ground, and then picking it up and thoroughly running it into the ground again.

now, as the whole HLA thing is over on the happy fun tsn re-broadcast o' Raw, I have come to an interesting conclusion. Lawler is a 14 year old boy, seriously.

Every single other guy that mentioned the HOT LESBAIN ACSHUN, they were like every 21 to 60 year old guy I know when it comes to seeing hot lesbian action, sure, they mention it a fair bit, but, it's not the main thread of conversation all the time, but a subthread most of the time. Whereas all Lawler could talk about was "HLA! OMFG! ROFLLOLOLOLOL HLAHLAHLA!!!! We're gonna see some HOT LESBAIN ACTION! YOU KNOW WE WILL SEE HOT LESBIAN ACTION LATER~! I LIKE HOT LESBIAN ACTION!"

His constant mentioning of the HLA just makes it that much less interesting, and makes you want it to happen sooner just to shup the li'l bastid up. And, this also makes it less enjoyable because the li'l fucker just won't shut up so you can focus on the hot, lesbian, action goin' on.

The thing that really gets me is, if it wasn't for Lawler, I might've really enjoyed that segment. There are two reasons:

1) I'm a pig.

2) I was laughing my ass off as Bichoff tried to direct the whole thing, and even more when he mentioned violence and I started contemplating when the lesbians 3 minutes were up.

I think it might have worked with a few small changes:

1) The segment just "happens" with Bischoff's reasoning and intro of it followed by them coming down to the ring.

2) Cutting 5 minutes off of the time they used (hell, maybe they only used 3 minutes, but the segment just seemed to go on forever for me).

3) Lawler shot in the fucking head before they hit the air.

This is officially the first time in YEARS that I couldn't watch the rest of a WWF show. The last time was the King of the Ring when Mabel beat Taker (and I PAID for that one). Twenty minutes in Bischoff said HLA, and 21 minutes in Lawler had annoyed me to the point where I couldn't stand to listen anymore.

It'll be interesting to see the ratings for the show and then even more interesting to read the excuses (Monday Night Football, no Benoit, Sept. 11 shows, first fullmoon after labor day with slight overcast and an owl in your tree... People never seem to run out of reasons why a show that sucked gets shit ratings without mentioning that it sucked)

In another board, the Smartmarks, they are setting up PALC, People Against Lawler Commentary. Maybe I should start a chapter over here. how about it?

I screamed “Shut up, Lawler!” at the television screen at least once. King, it's been fun, but unfortunately you stopped entertaining me about... three minutes ago.

IF there WAS a feud between JR and Lawler, Lawler would be the face and JR would be the heel. That's pretty clear.

Trying to make it the other way around would be like making a high school movie for high school kids where the main character gets busted and suspended at the end and the principal is victorious because he put an end to the kid's hijinks and we root for the principal because he took the moral high ground. And that's never going to happen.

I was thinking of muting the TV last night until after the HLA segment. That's how bad Lawler was.

I don't wish for anyone to get fired, but last night was the final straw.

The only problem is there's no suitable replacement for Lawler.

    The only problem is there's no suitable replacement for Lawler.

Flair used to do color at times in the days of Jim Crockett Promotions, so having him replace Lawler is an option. At this point though, Steve McMichaels dog Pepe would do a better job than Lawler.

I am just waiting for the day Lawler gets arrested for kiddie porn. It is just to obvious by his actions that he has to be a pedophile because there is no way a man of his age is so immature.

But is getting busted for Kiddie Porn a step up or a step down from the statutory rape charges of 93?

There will always come a time when an "Old vet" has to "Step aside" and "Put over the new talent" because of their "Respect for the business". Or so I keep hearing. The only time I ever saw it happen was Mankind putting over HHH. Yeah, great, let's see Cactus Jack beat in all of his signature matches. What does this have to do with The King? The dirty old man "act" is tired. It's time for Jerry to "Give back to the business" and put over new and exciting talent like...well who is out there that can headline the "Number One Show On Cable"? There is only one name that would generate any kind of "Heat". The kind of crossover splash that gets Mr. Mcmahon a "Pop" in next week's Entertainment Weekly. That's right, bring back the number one color announcer of the past 30 years. No, not Bob Claudell. Jesse Ventura. He should be available around January 2nd.

Just read over at another site that the King was fresh from cosmetic surgery last night, which means he was probably on painkillers, which (with or without a couple of pops with the boys before showtime) gives him his first legitimate partial excuse for his awful performance since his last wife left him...

Not bad. Don't remember ever seeing a video for the song, so that's pretty cool. Must have been in the days of other music videos done by Slick, the Can Am Connection or Strike Force, and others.
