The SmarK Rant for WWE Monday Night RAW – 06.27.11

The SmarK Rant for WWE Monday Night RAW – 06.27.11

So this CM Punk kid is back in the news again.  Figured that maybe I’d randomly pick an episode of RAW from around 2011, when he was getting to be a big star, and give it a review for the first time.  And hey, this one features RAW Roulette, that sounds like an interesting one!  Hopefully I spin the wheel and come up with something notable.

The SmarK Rant for WWF Superstars – 12.18.93

Well, unfortunately every day can’t be the day after Dynamite, so it’s back to stinky old WWF Superstars again. Which reminds me, if Hangman Page is Lex Luger now, does that make Kenny Omega into Yokozuna in this scenario? And who is the Bret Hart? Sounds like you guys have some homework!

The SmarK Rant for AEW Dynamite – 07.28.21

Well, SORT OF.  Because the Olympics apparently bumped the show here in Canada from TSN2 to TSN5 tonight, which I didn’t realize until the end of the first hour, at which point I was able to record the rest of the show.  So, here’s the second hour!  Hopefully nothing infuriating went down in the first hour, hahahaha LOL.

Taped from Minot, ND. The city’s motto is, I believe, “Minot? Why not!” Actually after the world stops being so infected with disease I want to go down to Minot and do some shopping so I shouldn’t make fun of them so much. I also want to visit Fargo, because DUH.

Your hosts are Rod Trongard & Donna Gagne

James Fabiano reviews…THE RACCOONS!

I’ve just restarted watching my DVDs of recordings of The Raccoons, which I received from a friend who got them from off-CBC rerun recordings.  As we’ve talked here and there about the show, I am letting you all in on the fun too!

(Scott sez:  This show was never really on my radar, as I was more of a GI Joe/MOTU/Transformers/Robotech devotee and didn’t have time for the Raccoons.  But I had many friends who were, and still are, fans.)

The SmarK Rant for WWF Wrestling Challenge – 01.17.87

I find it continually fascinating that this show, which should fall into the wheelhouse of everyone reading, just doesn’t do very well in engagement or views, but WWF Superstars in 1993 knocks it out of the park every time.  Do I need more Finnish recipe jokes here?
