641 - Three Words, Vinny...
Topic: McWrestling
According to rajah.com and their listed sources, Raw writer Brian Gewirtz has once again renewed his push for a more prominent role for Mick Foley on Raw since Foley will pass any drug test. However, Vince McMahon has shot this one down time and time again, feeling Foley is yesterday's news. All I gotta say is... Pot. Kettle. Black.

632 - One Millionth Fan? No Thanks...
Topic: Rants
WWE put out a press release honoring its one millionth fan to the Continental Airlines Arena. Not to dampen the mood or anything, but that's hardly newsworthy. Anyway, if you're curious, click here to read it.

631 - Quick Movie Review: Mr. Bean's Holiday
Topic: Black Hole Reviews

Recently got to see this one yesterday, which is surprising to me because I didn't even know they made another Bean movie until my mother told me about it. Anyway, in this movie, Mr. Bean wins a train trip to Cannes and through his various acts, trouble comes a-brewing.

Not being a big fan of Bean and having seen a few episodes as well as that first flick ten years ago, my expectations weren't all that high. This is pretty much the same Bean you've seen on the show and the first movie and that seems to be enough, as it's still a pretty funny flick. Even ten years removed from the movie when he lasted played the role, that Rowan guy can still pull it off. Of course, there were some dragging moments, but that's to be expected with a lot of movies.

If you're a fan of Bean, you'll want to watch this movie. If you're not, this is still a funny, well-done film, although I'd advise you to pick up the movie and some TV episodes if you want to get Bean at his best.

629 - Oh Shat
Topic: Rants

Apparently the campaign to get Shatner on Abrams' Trek flick continue as the former "Kirk" is whoring himself out in an attempt to get someone to convince Abrams to stick the Shat in there. And... the talks over at Trekweb are amusing as hell, with the Shat-fans saying that Nimoy betrayed his best friend or some other bullshit... Doesn't Shatner already have a TV show he's doing right now? Shouldn't he just stick with that? His days as Kirk are long gone and no amount of makeup or toupees is going to bring him back to form just for a useless cameo. Would it be cool to see Kirk back in action? Sure... when a younger guy plays him. If Shatner doesn't fit into the equation, there should be no reason why he ought to.

Maybe it's because I was born in the eighties when Trek movies were starting to come out, so I don't have the same time of love for Kirk. Yes, I do believe he defined Trek. He's a cultural icon that Shatner has molded into his own. That much cannot be taken away. However, the man is way past his prime as far as that role goes and it's time for the mantle to be assumed by someone else. Would it be nice to see Shatner in a Trek movie? Sure... as the Enterprise chef.

628 - Summerslam 2007 predictions
Topic: PPV Predictions

Haven't done one of these predictions in quite some time, so excuse me for dusting off the cobwebs. Anyway, you should know the drill by now: I list all the advertised matches and give my thoughts on who wins and what the actual match might entail. My only gripe seems to be that a lot of the matches here have been seen before in some form, but nonetheless, it looks fairly decent and it'll be interesting to see how they handle the two returns.

The "Didn't We Have This Match Last Year" Match
Chavo Guerrero vs. The RETURN of Rey Mysterio
This one's easy. Barring all the external issues and taste management of last year's shitfest, Rey should take the win because he's making the big comeback while Chavo should just fade into obscurity until the shadow of losing his title to a midget is faded. That'll take about five to ten years tops. Of course, if their previous matches were any indication, this should be good.
WINNER: Rey wins. I felt this wasn't as good as their previous encounters, but hey, it's his first match back, so we'll let it pass. 1-0

The "Didn't We Have This Match at Wrestlemania 19" Match
King Booker vs. The RETURN of Triple H
It's really sad to see two guys who were legends in their prime wrestle a match when they're past their point of usefulness. Let's face it: Booker T, as great a wrestler as he is, can't deliver the goods as well as he did (although he can still go) while Trips isn't all that reliable as we await the next big quad tear in another six years time. Again, gotta give the duke to he of the three Hs simply because he's making the big comeback.
WINNER: HHH wins. 2-0

The "Didn't We Have This Match on Smackdown A Few Weeks Ago" Match
Kane vs. Finlay
It's really sad to see two guys who were legends in their prime wrestle a match when they're past their point of usefulness... wait a minute, I just said that already! In this case, we don't have to worry because Finlay can still go and Kane can give a good match or two if he can be bothered to do so. So let's give the duke to Kane.
WINNER: Kane wins the match despite interference from Finlay's little bastard midget. A fairly solid brawl and a good opener. 3-0

The "We Don't Know What To Do With These Guys So Let's Throw Them Together In A Match" Match for the IC title
Umanga (champion) vs. Carlito vs. Ken Kennedy
Since I'm not really in the mood for witty banter or the like, let's just be brave and say Umaga retains. But really, at this point, it could go either way. But let's go with Umaga because Carlito's not so cool anymore (not to mention he doesn't need more IC gold) and Kennedy... well, he's just gotten stale. Man, what is it with these Smackdown guys when they move to RAW? When they're on Smackdown, they're this awesome thing that you expect to do big things. And then they move to RAW and they start to suck and be uninteresting. It's a strange feeling.
WINNER: Umanga retains. Bleh match. 4-0

The "Shit Break - No Comment" Match
Divas Battle Royal - Winner Gets A Women's Title Shot
Well, like I said... no comment.
WINNER: Anyone who avoided this match, I suppose. But in case you care, Beth Phoenix is the new contender. 4-0

The "Didn't We Have This Match on ECW Every Other Week" Match for the ECW World Title Match
John Morrison (champion) vs. CM Punk
John Morrison has done well for himself now that he ditched the crappy music and annoying skank Melina. While ECW has been less than stellar, the focus on young guys has made for a better show. The matches that these guys had are actually very good, which is surprising considering one of the talents used to name himself after WCW's flagship show. As far as a winner, I gotta believe Punk's night is tonight. He can't leave this feud with a third straight PPV loss and let's face it: Morrison doesn't really need the belt.
WINNER: Morrison retains the title. Oops. 4-1

The "Didn't We Have This Match Last Month... Actually, No We Didn't" Match for the (Smackdown) WWE World Heavyweight Title
Batista vs. Great Khali (champion)
Last year, Batista challenged for the world title and got a DQ win. This year... I'd say Batista wins... although it'll be more likely to be a DQ win than a title win, but a win of some form nonetheless.
WINNER: Batista wins via DQ. Knew they'd take the easy way out. 5-1

The "Never Had This Match" Match for the (RAW) WWE Spinner Belt Title
Randy Orton vs. John Cena (champion)
Orton wins and ends John Useless' reign of terror.
WINNER: Cena wins... fucking hell. 5-2

Overall, a nice little show. Can't say I care for the end result, but still a nice show. 

Later.

627 - Anchorwoman axed after one episode
Topic: WTF?!
In a record-breaking cancellation move, FOX (famous for cancelling shows within a couple episodes) has cancelled the latest comedy-reality series Anchorwoman, featuring a former WWE Diva's attempts to become a TV news reporter. Some people say the show was so bad it had to be cancelled after the first episode aired. I disagree because when I read the show got cancelled, my first thought was "Wait a minute. The show's cancelled? I didn't even know it aired!"

As of yesterday, I began numbering older entries, starting with the first 60+ posts made in 2004. People have commented on the numbering system being all whacked out, so I decided to implemented throughout.

Coming soon: a more descripted monthly index.

624 - Did Not See SNME
Topic: McWrestling
For anyone wondering why I didn't post about SNME, it's because I didn't see the whole thing. Just about the only thing I saw was the "boxing" match. The less said the better. However, from what I understand, a lot of people believed it to one of the better entries since its revival last year, so that has to be worth something I suppose.

621 - Play Ultra Hard Mario Bros featured in funny video
Topic: Rants
Some time ago, I posted a link to a video of guy swearing all kinds as he plays through a very difficult hack of Super Mario Bros. For anyone who wants to suffer quick hair loss and more damage to your furniture than Wii owners only dream of, you can download the infamous ROM from this site here. If you've got the skills, patience... and proper timing of that first jump, you'll have a ball and a half.

620 - No more name-plates on our belts
Topic: McWrestling

According to PWPIX.NET:

In what they are claiming is a cost-cutting measure, WWE is apparently no longer going to be putting name plates on the championship belts.

Yes, because making individual name-plates are syphoning the company's budget. Personally, I feel they could cut out most of the dead weight, but whatever. In any case, the lack of name-plates won't be much of a loss in the long run since the company had been doing fine without them before 2002 when they first adopted the plates. So, for anyone in line to get custom championship belts, go while they're hot.

618 - Thor HHH? Good lord.
Topic: Rants
Wrestling sites and comic sites have been reporting that Marvel is keen on HHH assuming the lead role of Thor in the upcoming movie of the same name. Director of said flick, Matthew Vaughn, is not happy that the man of three Hs is being considered for the role. I agree with Vaughn. HHH might have the physique to pull it off, but his attempts at acting has bored the shit out of me... and that doesn't include his appearance on the Drew Carey show. Why do you suppose his WWE Films vehicle is constantly being delayed? So the guy could show off his horrible acting skills on WWE audiences every Monday night.

617 - So Testy, how does it feel to be pushed at the expense of others?
Topic: McWrestling

A recent post by former WWE guy and current TNA guy Andrew "Test" Martin saying how he enjoys getting a fresh start and agrees that talent is indeed in TNA. Of course, it's hard to determine whether the talent he refers to is the homegrown talent of TNA or the plethora of WWE rejects that TNA is pushing to the moon at the expense of said homegrown talent.

So yeah, Testy. You don't have to be the boss's son in law to get anywhere; just "WWE Superstar" in your resume is more than enough to get the peons at WCW... er, I mean, TNA to give you a big push long after you bear any relevance.

I'll be honest: I have no gripes with a guy who wants a new start. If Mr. Martin gets a good run in TNA, more power to him. It's just frustrating to see that the company is resorting to signing former WWE guys just to pop a non-existent rating.

So good luck with your fresh new start and potential main-event push, Mr. Martin. Hope you don't trip over a sulking homegrown talent who is more worthy of the spot than you are.
