I too as a stunned bitter and emotional wreck Yankee's fan is sick of hearing about the money we spend when Boston spends almost the same amount. So, I know everyone loves Boston right now, but they are not some small market team that came out of nowhere. They have a lot of good talent that did not come cheap.
I think I am wrong about Foley, Benoit winning is the Boston equvilant. Foley is if the Cubs ever win it.

I was just about to say the same thing. While the Redsox haven't won in a looong time, I think the Cubs winning would be even a bigger once in a lifetime thing, like Foley's win. And Foley is more like the "lovable loser" while Benoit is more like the grizzly scrappy hard working Redsox.
By the way, Storm's gimmick includes 1.) telling the audience to shut up, and 2.) occasionally making everyone stand for the Canadian national anthem. You know they don't know what to do with a wrestler when he's making fans stand for a national anthem. It's like waving a white flag and saying, "This guy has no personality -- we give up."
I recall, on one of the last Nitros, Rick Steiner beating the holy fuck out of Lash Leroux. I mean, it was NASTY. Then again, not entirely surprising, considering Foley's recounts of matches with the Steiners in his book.
