I want the Big Show sketch as a t-shirt. Or this Eddy image.
This was the first chance I got to really watch the show in ages (damn evening Spanish class!).
I was seriously digging MNM last night. Love the entrance, love the Swinging Porn Belts, love the energy in the ring. They're my new favorite team. Haas wrestles like Kurt but looks like Lance. Holly ... you know, he's just about as close to Redneck Luger as you can get.
I liked the Cena bit, and I liked the JBL bit, and I like these guys talking to each other without the Cabinet. Look at ShopZone's top ten items sold and see just how ungodly over Cena is. And I think he deserves it. He's in great shape, can obviously talk on the mic, and he's got a smile like a 13-year-old. If it weren't for overdoing the "bling street soldier" gimmick, I'd call him the best thing on that show.
Except for King Eddy the Rudo! My liege, my inspiration, my new avatar!

I was hoping somebody would mention Hardcore Holly going bat-shit insane. That made the entire show for me. An honest tag team feud, who da thunk it.
I'm also digging Morgan as Carlito's big back up. He and Tomko are finally bringing some respectability back to being a hired goon, man-let if you will. He even remembers to stutter when he's off the mic sometimes which is a nice touch.
I can't believe with all the Wisconsin wieners we didn't get a jobber of the week sighting. At least he got his first name out so he wasn't completely nameless.
--Apparently man-let is already in the-w's dictionary. I guess I'm not as clever as I thought I was.
EDIT: Or maybe man-let is in the dictionary because it's two words hyphenated. D'oh.
