HA! What episode is that from?
I was on the phone and saw, but not heard, the Mattitude Desire clip. Hopefully they`ll show it again during Velocity.
It was the *classic* episode of GI Joe in which Shipwreck, Dialtone, and... uh... the new medic (Lifeline, maybe?) all got promoted to generals thanks to Cobra implanting some lines of code into a computer. Chaos ensued, with three bad officers screwing things up in battle because:
1) Medic boy had the ability to lead but not the desire.
2) Dialtone had the desire but not the ability.
3) Shipwreck had neither the desire nor the ability.
Biggest, maddest, phattest props possible to Dr Unlikely for busting out the OBSCURE reference.
Doesn't Matt's music work just perfectly for him? I mean, it's nothing I would crank on my MP3 player or anything, but it's totally his song.
I think Matt's trying to drop the accent, too, and good for him. It was practically nonexistent during the Mattitude video, but he couldn't quite suppress it during the in-ring promo. Keep at it, Matt!

"Mattitude" is insanely funny, and that Desire video was one of the funniest things I've ever seen on wrestling. Just when you thought it was going to be a regular video. he busts out the "Mattributes", and it is gold.
I'll say this much for Tracey: she's better on the mic than others I could name, and especially better than many of the women.
Two questions though: what happened after Brock picked up Rey by his foot? They changed cameras really quickly; was it a blown spot?
Did Angle not manage to save Benoit once? I could have sworn I heard the ref say "three" before Kurt got there.
Triple H is a dead ringer for "Buzzer" of the Dreadnoks. Just give him some mirror shades and teach him to say "Blimey, Zartan".
According to reports from people who saw it live, what was supposed to happen was Lesnar blocking Misterio's attempt to slide between his legs by grabbing Misterio's foot, flipping him up onto his shoulder and then slamming him. What apparently happened is that he didn't get Misterio up onto his shoulder and the move didn't work, so they tried it again. And it missed again, so the crowd started booing.
The way they edited it, Brock tossed Misterio up by his foot and you could kind of see that Misterio wasn't going to fall the right way, but they immediately cut to a reverse angle shot of Brock dropping down onto Misterio, who was on the mat, with a slamming noise as the transition. Having read about it first, it was pretty jarring, but I can't imagine them being able to cover it any better than they did. It's what made me wonder if Misterio was supposed to get tossed from the floor into the ring at the end when he instead bounced off the top rope and fell to the apron, I figure maybe they were going for the cool WCW spot where O'Haire and Jindrak would hiptoss guys (I think Sting was the biggest guy they did it to) from the floor over the ropes and into the ring. But Lesnar's just one guy and he was doing it backwards over his head, and Misterio ended up making it look good anyway, like it was supposed to be Regal's move where he throws the guys into the ropes from the floor and nails them when they bounce back.

Yup, that`s it! Shipwreck was awesome, probably the most fleshed-out Joe...they did a LOT of episodes about him.
The Horsemen finally returning to full capacity sounds like it was a lot of fun. Ric still seems to be unhinged, based upon his lack of caring about the Horsemen/Dungeon split. My predictions going forward (ignoring any knowledge obtained since 1996)
