And his cornbread delivery just added to the humor of trying to be a 'homie'.
It is an inspired idea to team up Kurt Angle and Booker T. These two are former champions who feel legitimately slighted, and each can do funny and incisive promos like the Rock and Hulk Hogan. The two together with Edge in Raw last week was one of the funniest promos ever.
Yes, the Angle stuff was awesome, but I really enjoyed Rico, the stylist too. I was already digging Billy and Chuck, but this makes them ten times more entertaining. They way Rico yelled at them in back, and then was checking their hair out after their win was awesome. I see a lot of potential of Rico dissing the opposing teams' style. Could be some funny stuff ahead.
I loved the Y'all gonna make me lose my mind, but I particularly enjoyed Kurt talking about going over Booker's "crib." Just classic stuff. Kurt proves yet again why he's clearly better than anyone else on the roster.
Angle got started on the white-bread schtick a couple of weeks ago on Heat, where he made a wrong turn in Harlem on his way to WWF New York. Taken from The Cubs Fan's recap of Heat:
Kurt Angle and the limo driver are in Harlem (that quick? this the whole logic thing) and finding out that WWFNY is not where they were told, and they were set up by those guys. The limo guy's never been to WWFNY. Angle struts on over to a couple fellows to look for help. "Hey dudes! Hey, words to you and your mothers!" Kurt asks for help, and before they can tell him, he notices one guy has headphones on. "Is that Luther Vandross?" Now everyone's offended - just because they're black, they like Luther? Angle claims everyone loves Luther and is pressed to name a Luther song. "Um, Baby...You're So Fine." They claim never to have heard of that song and ask Angle to sing it right now. "Baby you're so fine, oh, baby, girl? Girl?"
Funny, funny stuff.

Damn!!! I knew I forgot something about that show. The one thing I wanted to see on the show and I slept through it.

Guys, shut up! You know (the way the WWF's been going lately) that as soon as this gets over in the LEAST, they'll either brak up the team or try their best to FORCE them to suck! We must keep this tiny pocket of coolness left in the WWF a secret lest the writers ruin it for us all!
Seriously, though... Angle, Booker T. If they both end up with Flair's RAW, I want them, Benoit and Brock Lesnar as the new 4 Horsemen! Angle and Booker T. For something that sounds so weird on paper, they are golden, aren't they?

No, no, and HELL no. Rico looks damn near EXACTLY like a slightly more butch version of Rick Martel. When they get tired of this gimmick, they can bring Essa Rios back and the WWF can form "Strike Force 2K"!
There are no facts-only observational postulates in an endlessly regenerative hodgepodge of predictions. Consensus reality requires a fixed frame of reference. In a multilevel, infinite universe, there can be no fixity; thus, no absolute consensus reality. In a relativistic universe, it appears impossible to test the reliability of any expert by requiring him to agree with another expert. Both can be correct, each in his own inertial system.
The Best Damn Sports Show Period had a roast of John Kruk this evening. Taking part was the King of the World Chris Jericho. His spot was brief, but he had a couple of funny things to say. I guess he's friends with Kruk or something.
