>> THE LEGCY OF TRUTHBy Chris Bernes, [obiwanjabroni19@...]
OK, without further adieu, and fear of more threatening letters, only
two people answered my ultra tough trivia quiz the week of my poll. J
Smoothio (no real name provided), and Howard Cohen of Granada Hills,
Calif. were the two respondants who succesfully told me the 5 men who
are all deceased who formed the three tag teams in the WWF who scored
tag team gold. Owen Hart, Davey Boy Smith, Yokozuna, Dick Murdock and
Adrian Adonis were the 5 men. They also correctly identified the teams
that beat them. Good job guys, now please stop yelling at me.
This past Tuesday, the WWE paid a visit to my workplace, the Mohegan
Sun, for a taping of SmackDown at the arena here. Instead of boring you
with the results that you already know, I am going to give my random
thoughts on the event, in the ever so popular dot-dot-dot format. Here
The night before the event, the SD crew arrived from New Haven...
while trying to leave work that night, I met Batista, Reverend D-Von,
Albert and his parents, and Mark Henry... all were very nice...
Albert's parents look like little old versions of Albert, but with
hair... I have had three nightmares about a Bloom family reunion since
then, where all family mambers look like versions of Mr Matt Bloom, the
star known as Albert... Batista was so far from his mean character, and
was genuinely excited to be here... was told by security via my cell
phone the next morning that added precautions were necessary due to the
Rock, Hollywood Hogan, Vince McMahon, and Undertaker were all in
separate luxury suites on floor 26 of our hotel. No confirmation on
Hogan, but the other three wandered the casino Tuesday morning, much to
the delight of many patrons... MY SIGN MADE TV, MY SIGN MADE TV.....
Yes, my tip-of-the-hat to my brainchild, CPW, and my
partner's FWC was featured on a sign that read "The Legacy owns Cool
Papa 4-Life" in the first 3 minutes of the broadcast. You're jealous as
hell, I can tell!!.... Dear God, how HOT did Stephanie look that
night? Makes me wish I had left my girlfriend at home (sorry, KJ)...
Yes, you read that right, my girlfriend attended her very first WWE
event.... more on that later.... ATTENTION RED SOX FANS: Please
refrain from chanting "Yankees Suck" at events where it is irrelevant.
At a Yankkes/Red Sox game, this is OK, but not at a WWE event.... Not
the first time this has happened this year. The Anthrax/Judas Priest
concert, the Bruins Hockey game, the Sammy Hagar/David Lee Roth show....
Red Sox fans who do this make themselves look like the jealous also-rans
you are (and represent their fellow fans as such as well).... Not quite
the starpower I expected for the WWE's first TV show here, but the show
itself was top-notch, first rate.... John Cena is
quickly becoming a favorite of mine.... Chris Benoit is back in top
form, but needs to stay away from the flying headbutt that caused him to
aggrivate his neck and miss a year of work.... Almost got into a fight
because I ranted about how the above mentioned chants were irrelevant,
stupid, and uncalled for.... I would've won, though, I'm a pretty rough
guy!!!.... OK, remember how I mentioned KJ attended her first live
event, right?? Well she now loves Rey Mysterio Jr. ("that Mexican Jumpy
guy") and the Undertaker (Who she cheered for as he was announced and
after he won the match at the close of the show).... My new Rey Jr.
shirt is missing... it was last seen in my bedroom the night of the
event... anyone with information on my missing shirt need only be on the
lookout for a female caucasian, 5'3", 120 lbs, cute with a hell of a
rack, answers to the name of "KJ".... Still have my Hurricane shirt,
though... After the show, while relaxing with a cold beverage, we saw
Michael Hayes and Mark Henry having dinner and drinks with their
companions.... decided not to bother them.... Pat Patterson showed up at
the restaurant minutes later.... I was dragged away by KJ and my friend
Nat (who had just gotten off of work) before I could make fun of Pat...
All in all, I was impressed not only by the show itself, but the way the
superstars conducted themselves here at Mohegan Sun.... I hope this is
the beginning of a long relationship between the WWE and we here at
Mohegan Sun... Now if I could only get a member of the creative writing
team to actually accept my portfolio of CPW writngs, I just may have a
That is the truth, and this time, it doesn't hurt at all!!!
Answer to last week's trivia: Congratulations go to Bruce Battles, who
was the first person to correctly identify Oil Trough, Texas, as Dutch
Mantell's hometown. Way to be, yo!!!!
THIS WEEK'S TRIVIA: Name the first match aired on the very first WCW
"Monday Nitro" on September 6, 1995. Extra Credit if you can also
correctly identify the main event that night!!
Take care and see you in a week!!
