I Taped and watched the segment twice and I think Cena carried that segment but Benoit wasn't bad and Lesnar sounded/look like a deer caught in a car headlights out there.

Any thought?

"Did you see that!? I landed on me noggin!"


Seriously, It was like an episode of HEE HAW in there. I didn't think Brock could be THAT bad on the mic.

Flair: "Tonight, it's gonna be Austin, Bradshaw, taking on the NWO!

(Next Monday...)

Flair: I'm not trying to screw you Austin. Tonight, to show that I'm legit, I'll referre your match tonight when you and bradshaw take on the n..w..o!

(Next monday...)

Flair: You thought that was funny Austin? No one screws with the nature boy! tonight, it's gonna be you and bradshaw taking on X-pac and Big Show!

(Next Monday...)

Flair:That's it, you have pissed of the nature boy WHOOO for the very last time Austin!! Tonight I throwing your ass in a special tag match against the NWO. And your partner is gonna be.........Bradshaw!

Shiny Happy Brocky being all HBK '96 was getting real stale in there. Cena saved the segment, though. Benoit will always be decent enough in his limited range, so no complaints there. In fact, I'd love to see a longer Benoit/Cena PPV build sometime down the road.

Reserved for future use.

Cena rocks. He is so good on the mic it is scary. He has a great look and is good int he ring too. I am looking forward to his match with Lesnar, but I would have preferred Eddie vs. Lesnar and Cena vs. Benoit. That would have been two really good matches and a feud with Benoit would be great for Cena.

Brock sure is putting the effort in though. He's trying really hard to be smooth and natural, it's just that the stuff he's saying doesn't sound like anything a guy like that would ever say, it all sounds too forced.

I also think he needs to quit working "here comes the pain" or a variation of into every damn promo he does. Just like O'Haire's "I'm not telling you anything..." line, they seem to want to throw it in when it just doesn't fit. The writers need to work harder to make the promos better or give up on building those Catchphrases.

I think they need to get Brock and O'Haire into some public speaking courses. I agree give them both an "A" for effort, but the working in of the catch phrases seemed...well...odd.

For Brock I think they need to get him yelling a little more. As much as I hate that type of promo, his "normal" voice is just that...normal. It almost sounds creepy coming out of someone that big.

As for O'Haire...when he's supposed to do his evil laugh? He shouldn't have the "Hey! I forgot. This is where I'm supposed to laugh." look on his face right before he does it. God help me for saying this, but having Piper teach him can only be an improvement.

In the immortal words of Sir Booker Huffman, TELL ME YOU DIDNT JUST SAY THAT. Cena is a total frieking gomer on the mic. The entire wigger talk schtick makes him look like a complete idiot.

StaggerLee, I'm sure your not alone in feeling that way, but I think it's safe to say that you're in the minority.

I think that most of the posts I've read about JC fall into one of two camps:

1) Cena has managed to take lemons and make lemonade, despite being saddled with a stupid gimmick.

2) Cena has taken a gimmick that might have been stupid with someone else, but really suits him, and run with it.

I lean a bit more toward the second camp. Although the white b-boy gimmick was moronic on Too Cool, for instance, it really suits Cena. Just like Cena's original gimmick (earnest rookie) was kind of lame on him, but suits Kendrick better.

Someday, when I get a DVD-R system, one of many compilations I intend to make from my tapes will be a collection of all of JC's raps.

JC rules the mic!

Michale Cole carried the whole thing on his back! (Kidding!)

Seriously though, I did get a kick out of his cheesy over-read of "BRRRROOCCCKK LLLESSSSNAAAAARR!!!!"

And it cracked me up that the crowd wanted Brock to give him the F-5. That makes me wonder...what if they made Cole a heel announcer? He could play off the fans hatred of him and really over do it. Something to think about for the future.

Much thanks to GrubbyLongJohns for designing my sig banner!
