Great little segment for Stevie Richards. I think his return to prominence means that ECW now officially has a half-dozen faces!
“How is it that I am a good actor? What I do is I... pretend to be the person I’m portraying. You’re confused. Case in point: in Lord of the Rings, Peter Jackson comes to me and says ‘I would like you to be Gandalf the Wizard,’ and I said ‘You are aware that I am not really a wizard?’ and Peter Jackson said ‘I would like you to use your acting skills to portray a wizard for the duration of the show.’ So I said ‘Okay’ and then I said to myself ‘Mmm.. How do I do that?’ And this is what I did: I imagined that I was a wizard, and then I pretended, and acted, in that way on the stage. How did I know what to say? The words were written down for me in a script. How did I know where to stand? People told me where to stand." -- Sir Ian McKellen, Extras
Where was the show taped? Because that was the hottest crowd I've seen in a long time. Totally great.
In other news, they still haven't given me a reason to care about Kofi Kingston. It feels too much like he's getting shoved down my throat, with Styles' constant declarations of how unique his offense is. Maybe in 1993 this would have been cool, but in 2008 a month's worth of jobber squashes is not enough to build a guy up (and yes, I consider Mike Knox a jobber now since they didn't even show his entrance).
You guys were all forgetting the most important part of the show, which was the sighting of "Rapid Delivery" Rory Fox, the MTV superstar!
I like Kofi, but he is wildly inconsistent. He was awful the first week, and then looked much better the second week. Now on Tuesday, he looked average. I can't get a read on him, although I for one like his moves.

I think that might be a little premature. There's still no reason to believe he's booking both shows (I mean, sure, he *wanted* to, but really, who gives a shit?). I stand by my reasoning that he's most likely working RAW exclusively.
