Agreed, same ol' crap. Ohhh, Teddy announces a Batista vs JBL, what a fuckin treat that is. Shamel is starting to be like Stephanie Mcmahon annoying. I cant stand her at all. Booker needs to keep that filthy animal locked up. Im curious about Ken Kennedy though.
If the Benoit Coffee Challenge were to replace the Angle Gold Medal Challenge, that would not be a bad thing. At all. If The Legion of Doom can beat up no-names every week, why not the Crippler? That is until a worthy feud comes down the pike.
