The SmarK Rant for WWE Network Collection – Bobby “The Brain” Heenan (Part 1)
Well, this was a sadly obvious choice to tackle tonight, as a break from the Hidden Gems series. Obviously not many matches to review here, but that’s why the point system is perfect for it, because this is a collection of stuff that reminds me a lot of what the old Coliseum Videos would have offered for a “Best of Bobby Heenan” set.
It’s the weekend! Woo!
WWE No Mercy is tomorrow, headlined by Lesnar vs. Strowman and Cena vs. Reigns.
Ring of Honor’s Death Before Dishonor PPV took place last night.
The relationship between streaming service FloSports and Gabe Sapolsky’s WWN has broken down.
Japanese promotion DDT has been acquired by CyberAgent, owners of streaming service AbemaTV. More details here.
Now talk, damn it!
I just recently re-watched Royal Rumble 1992. Having a worker the caliber of Ted DiBiase as one of the first two entrants makes sense, yet he was tossed over in 1:18. He barely lasted longer than Jerry Sags. Was he in the doghouse or
working hurt or something? What was the point of wasting him in such a throwaway manner?
Tonight the Judge is already killing the Jays, so yay.
Huge upload of Bobby Heenan clips on the Network today! Maybe I’ll tackle that tonight.
This weekend is No Mercy, and I’m pretty pumped about this one. Cena v Reigns should be awesome and hopefully they pull the trigger on Braun.
Talk about it here!
–A video package hypes today’s Sid-Bob Holly feature match, with Sid saying that Holly has made the biggest mistake of his life by agreeing to face him.

The SmarK Rant for WWE No Mercy 2016
Straight talk here, I’m watching this after the butt-clenching adrenaline of the Blue Jays game tonight, so this is probably gonna be a letdown because I only really know two of the matches. But did I mention BLUE JAYS WIN? (I’m much more pumped about this year’s No Mercy because there’s actual matches with stakes that I have investment in as a fan. How about that, huh?)
Because they totally did. (Man, I sure wasn’t saying that much THIS year!)

It’s time for whatever this promotion is called this week, though I would recommend MMA Pro Wrestling at this point as the American Top Team fighters are the undisputed top stars of the show. Lashley’s release has been revoked due to getting in a big fight with Moose to end last week’s episode. Let’s get to it.
Talk about everything going on tonight here
