Great thread. My fantasy football team was called Fruit Booty and my web blog is called Suckas Gots to Know. The other Stevie Ray thing was calling all the women Yaks. We used to die laughing hearing his commentary.

Yes, Booker must have been sending a shout out to Stevie Ray tonight on Raw when he used the "Yak" term in his promo.
I loved it when Book said it.

CAT (with Mz. Jonez) v. "PRIME TIME" ELIX SKIPPER - this match needs to be kept in a time capsule for no other reason than Stevie Ray provides his absolute FINEST example of commentary to date, starting from his peals of laughter the moment Cat calls his "Sammy Davis lookin' Jr ass" into the ring. In fact, let's just pull out the spotlight and transcibe Stevie Ray to give you the full flavour of this match. You'll be able to deduce the words of Schiavone and Tenay in between the lines. "Prime Time! Prime Time! Who house is this? Who house is this? Prime Time! Lookit the Cat go! Lookit the Cat go! Armdrag by the Cat! Lookit the Cat go! Three time world karate champion! Oh I heard that one! And he nailed that one! Look out - look out - oh man! Yes. Yes I do. Yes I do, if he got any sense in that big, s-- thick cranium of his - hit on Miss Jones! Look at Prime Time - Prime Time's got a mean streak in him tonight, guys - that's what them yaks do to a man - *put a mean streak* in him, Tony! Ah, he's just out sayin' lookout baby, I got your man in check, that's what he said. Oh! Tell 'em, Prime Time - that's what I'm - hey - hey - you guys don't - you guys don't understand, baby, that's how you got to talk to them yaks, baby, that's what they understand. Prime Time - lookout - AHHHHH!!! HAAAAAhahahahahahahaha - HAAAAhahahahaha - ohhhhhhhh - it came from Yak University - Yak University, baby! Yak U! Yak U! Look out! Boom! Oh MAN, double chop! Well, I guess she - guess she good for SOMETHING - oh oh, oh oh, OH OH...jig jerry jig POP! AHHHHHhahahaha! That was it - I been waiting for it all night, baby! DAAAAhahahah - POW! There it IS! Prime Time. Prime Time's in trouble. Oh, look out. Look out. Lookit the strength, you gotta give it to him - lotta dead weight right there and then Prime Time's got him up, back suplex. Look. What is that? He's got a couple of those, guys. Ow. OH MAN. That - you can never count a guy like the Cat out, he's got such an uh, arsenal. Look out! FEE-liner!" (3:27)
Oh, the memories. If they sat Stevie Ray next to Coach, I'd actually start watching Heat again! Hell, the Invasion would have been a huge success if Stevie Ray did the commentary for the Bagwell vs. Booker T match! Ok, maybe not.
My thought is with all the tag matches on RAW, and the battle royal on Smackdown, the WWE was simply trying to get as many wrestlers as possible out in front of the UK crowd, so when they go home, they can't say that so-and-so wasn't there.
