WWE announces Network numbers, Wall Street unimpressed.

http://www.f4wonline.com/more/more-top-stories/96-wwe-news/41858-wwe-network-update-and-lots-of-news

1.3 million subs for the Network, stock drops almost $3.00 as a result.  That's kind of a disastrous number, actually.  Unless Wrestlemania did about 700,000 regular PPV buys, there's not really any way to spin this as a positive.  Plus they're doing another free month in April.  I'm sure Chris Harrington will chime in shortly and I'll link there when he does, since he actually knows what he's talking about with this stuff.  

Sesame Street puppets as WWE Superstars

A heated BoD discussion as to whether Elmo is more like John Cena or The Rock got me to wondering if all of the major Sesame Street puppets have a WWE counterpart.  So far I got:


Elmo: John Cena or The Rock (good points made for both)
Big Bird: Hulk Hogan
Oscar: Stone Cold
Cookie Monster: Ryback
Grover: Jeff Hardy
Tully: Matt Hardy
Kermit: uh…drawing a big ol' blank here

Can you help a bored brother out?

I'm assuming by "Tully" you mean Telly Monster, and I can't agree with Matt Hardy.  Telly's a neurotic spazoid constantly seeking validation, probably closer to CM Punk or even Paul Heyman.  Cookie Monster as Ryback is perfect.  Grover would be closer to Santino for me, the guy who thinks of himself as a cool customer but who is really a big nerd.  Kermit's the neutral beloved straight man, which is obviously Jim Ross or Jerry Lawler.  
And you missed the most obvious gag of all:  The Count as a referee!

Shoots and Street Fights

If you can link this to your readers I'd be very appreciative.


Ha, the Randy Savage pistol-whipping story, awesome.  Sure, in the real world he'd be classified as a sociopath, I'm sure, but somehow his craziness and drug-addled rages just made him all the more charming within wrestling's confines.  

10 Scariest Moments on Sesame Street
