Today’s question is an interesting one, from a Mr. Steven Jones.
Love what you bring to Keiths blog. You are great. A Top Ten Guy in my book.
I had a good idea for QOTD. Remember Blossom, and “On a very special episode of Blossom…”
What if the WWE did that? On a very special episode of
Monday Night RAW? Could be some funny stuff. Thought I would throw
that out to you and the blog.
Keep it real
First off, Steven, it’s Calibray.
You know, people always talk about the “very special episodes” from the late 80’s, early 90’s, but I really only remember two. The Family Matter’s episode about gun violence, where someone was shot over a pair of shoes, and the Full House where Stephanie’s friend was beat by his dad. Then at one point Danny comes up and is all “Steph, you didn’t take out the trash”, to which Stephanie replies later “Oh man, I’m in big trouble” and her friend tells her to think of a funny movie like Home Alone or something when it happens. Then after the episode, Jesse & Steph talked to us about abuse. I’m sure wxnymcneal can tell us the date it aired, the production number, and the real names of everyone who appeared in that episode.
Raw doing that would be pretty funny. Would it be about some low-on-the-totem Diva trying to hide the fact that Randy Orton’s touching made her uncomfortable? Or the new, hip celebrity, Johnny Dakota hosts Raw, and tries to get Kofi & Zack Ryder to try pot. “Oh look, Johnny, Kofi’s “just saying no”‘. Now, that’s a Raw I’d actually watch.
How say you?
2) They also mentioned how WM 20 should have been HHH/Benoit, Rock/HBK, and Foley/Orton. I love this PPV so have no complaints about the card but why didn't Foley/Orton have a 1-1 match? It would have been a great launching pad for Orton, as it was he kinda got overshadowed by everyone else.
The Daniel Bryan discussion this morning made me ponder what the best overall move names are. I think the Japanese have this one wrapped up in terms of artistic merit (HIgh Fly Flow, Rainmaker, Shining Wizard, Miracle Ecstasy Bomb) but none of those really describes WHAT the move is. I think overall it's tough to top Undertaker claiming the tombstone piledriver as a generic move name that got turned into his signature move name, but there's a lot of good choices and I'm sure Sweet Chin Music is also gonna rank highly.
> Hey Scott,
> Considering there are only so many spot for wrestlers in the WWE and TNA , why do seemingly so few US wrestlers go overseas to wrestle in Japan (or even Mexico)? Is it a pay issue? Are there the same issues with job availability?
Yeah, it's a pay issue, because New Japan isn't exactly WWE and there's only so much to go around for gaijin there. Thus why Albert would rather do whatever he's doing now instead of getting respect and a push in Japan. Sometimes you gotta pay the bills.
Your friendly fellow fitness buff here. I
am proposing that in honor of the guy that trained him we start a
movement to name Daniel Bryan’s new running knee finisher “Sweet Beard
Music” What do you think? I bet everyone on the blog can unite, (for a
change) to make this happen.
You know, it’s not bad. But I have to admit I’m partial to Goat Knees Pizza. Especially since he’s going up against Orton, and they can call it the GKP. And you know, you call it the Pizza because you eat that shit.
So, how about it, gang? Anyone have a better idea? It’ll be one of the BoD’s many highlights amongst it’s legacy.
A surprisingly advanced and playable Intellivision wrestling game.
Something that I dislike about the current era of WWE is how sterilized everything looks. The stage is just one giant screen comprised of many smaller screens, and the crowd is far too illuminated.
In the Attitude Era, say what you will about its flaws, it had a great, gritty look that is conducive to an aggressive and exciting environment. There was one big monitor (the Titantron) and a whole bunch of metal shit around it. It didn't look like a Tokyo nightclub. The best rock shows of history have followed the same ideal: metal shit and a big statue or something behind the band. I don't want to watch a band play in front of a plasma TV.
The '70s and early '80s was great too, how the crowd is mostly in the dark and it makes the wrestlers look like gladiators fighting for good and evil among a dark sea of souls. It reminds me of stand-up specials from the same period.
