Just read something that got me thinkin' How awesome would it be if a singapore cane match started out with about 2 minute solid of straight sword fight action. you know, parry's, riposte's, thrusts and the stuff like that. if i were watching that at the show i'd get right into it.
lets say its AL and Dreamer
JR:Al and dreamer are circling each other King:this is great JR it's like that ninja movie i got except most of them were women and nekkid by now. JR: Oh gawd Al was closer then a bees dick to Dreamers head just then!!!! King: dreamer could've been circumsized from the neck up just then JR JR:they seem to be very wary of their opponents abilitys and rightly so. King: I'd be wary of anything Al does with something big and wooden, HAHA JR:AL is an accomplished martial artist and Dreamer has had a Cane in his hands since birth.
And it continues like that for a while till it breaks down into the standard brawl
The opening few moments of the Al Snow/Tommy Dreamer match resembled a lightsaber fight, as CRZ pointed out in his RAW recap. This was made all that more funny by an earlier column posted on the Slash talking, in part, about the Nowinski/Snow angle.
That segment of the column was introduced with the following words...
“A young Jedi named Christopher Nowinski, who was a pupil of mine before he turned to evil...”
It talked about the possible Obi-Wan/Anakin angle that could come out of the Snow/Nowinski deal. So the lightsaber duel at the beginning of the Snow/Dreamer match made me laugh as I remembered that column.
“And I would walk 500 miles, and I would walk 500 more, Just to be the man who walks a thousand miles and falls down at your door.”

AL SNOW (Tough Enough III - Lima, Ohio - 246 pounds - with Let Us Take You Back to Earlier TOnight) v. TOMMY DREAMER (Yonkers, New York - 252 pounds) in a Singapore cane match referee: JACK DOAN Those are KENDO STICKS, by the way. Say, when do they teach the kendo technique during Tough Enough, anyway? I guess never - when CHRISTOPHER NOWINSKI comes out, he ends up braining Snow with a stick when Dreamer ducks - and Dreamer covers for the pin. (2:22) Replay. Dreamer seems sorry - what, sorry HE didn't get to be the one to knock Snow the fuck out? Oh yeah - they had the onsale crawl during this match. I know you were wondering.
where is the lightsaber reference?
Caped Boy: Excuse me, ladies. You may remember me as the guy who came to dinner a few weeks ago with underwear on my head. My name is Keith Stat from Milbourne, New Jersey. State bird, the mosquito. And as you may have heard I am recently a crowned class B dungeon-master. So if any of you would like to play D&D today, please speak now or forever hold your peace. [He chuckles, and there is an awkward silence at the table.] Caped Boy: Anyone? Alexa! [Alexa gives him a withering glare.] Caped Boy: Maybe you would like to join in? We do need a druid, and you have definitely cast a level 5 charm spell on me. Alexa: In your dreams, douche-bag! Caped Boy: Douche-bags are hygienic products, I take that as a compliment. Thank you. [Keith walks off] Alexa: Ewww!
i only read the Raw recap on WWE.com so i didn't catch CRZ's lightsaber call. the reason i brought it up was i watched a dreamer/richards encounter and they both wacked sticks a few times which got the idea in my headthat it could be a fun innovation.
ps: yay for you Bongo. prove that you can suck the fun out of a joke.

I don't think Bagwell was on hand that evening... Neither was Konnan, who was Wolfpac for a couple of weeks before they gang beat him in the middle of the ring for wanting Rey Mysterio to be left alone.
