>> RAW TAWKBy Ginger, [GLRSS@...]
Hey! It's time for RAW Tawk! No time for small talk! Gimme a beat!
(In case this is your first time reading RAW Tawk, yes, I'm a dork.
Just get used to it and we'll get along fine. . .)
I've said it before: I like Jonathan Coachman and Al Snow as heels.
But, what's with all the gay talk? I have no problem with people
who have different preferences than me - sexual or otherwise. But, it's
like the writers think that hinting at a "secret relationship"
between Al and Coach will help sell them as heels. Why? I think it's
time to stop the madness and write a gay babyface into the
storylines! Are you with me?
Oh my gosh! Who would have guessed. . .Jericho and Christian staged a
protest against Stone Cold Steve Austin and - lo and behold -
who should stalk to the ring but. . .STONE COLD STEVE AUSTIN!!! I never
saw THAT coming! Way to go, you clever bookers! No WONDER
they call you a "creative team!"
While I was watching RVD and Y2J wrestle, I realized: I have *one*
degree of separation from Chris Jericho! I shook hands with Rob
Van Dam (at Axxess) and *he* has touched Jericho! Suddenly, I feel *so*
much better about my life!
My ten-year-old son whistled at Victoria. Should I be worried?
I love Mae Young! She reminds me of me. . .when *I* was that age!
I heard a rumor that Eric Bischoff and Stone Cold may be called upon to
man the announce table during the match of the year candidate
bout pitting the team of Al Snow and Jonathan Coachman vs. Jerry Lawler
and Jim Ross. (There's that pesky sarcasm again!) However,
after all those throwback "Believe the Hype" spots, I'm going to go out
on a limb and predict that former WCW stalwart, Tony Schiavone,
will be at announce position during Unforgiven!
And, while I'm feeling all psychic and stuff, I further predict that,
for PPV comic relief, we'll be treated with a dance contest between
Teddy Long and Lance Storm! (And, naturally, Lance Storm will emerge
the victor. Can you feel me?)
Oh my GOD! Kane has a last name! He does! Did you see? When he
signed his PPV contract, he certainly wrote more than four letters!
I guess, since they're brothers and all, that must mean Undertaker has a
last name, too!
I am SO *SICK* of Jerry Lawler saying all women secretly hate each
other. I think that's just what he WANTS to think, since he's so
turned on by cat fights.
I'm embarrassed to admit this but, you guys are my friends, right? Not
only did I legitimately get chills when Lita came out to save
Trish, but I frickin' CRIED! Can you *believe* that? I think I need
hormone therapy or something. . .
Seriously, I am *so* glad to see Lita back. I was so sympathetic when
she went through depression after her neck surgery. It's great to
have her back in the ring - and I really like her new wrestling togs, as
Did you guys see Test pat himself on the back? I'll bet Barry Horowitz
is filing a gimmick infringement suit as we speak. . .
I imagine Stacy Keibler's parents must be *so* proud when they tune in
to RAW every Monday night and see their precious girl showing
her ass to the World. I don't know why, but seeing her wear a skirt not
long enough to cover her buns while she's wearing a thong
looks more obscene to me than if she just came to the ring naked. ACK!
I sound like *such* an Auntie. . .
"Believe the Hype." UGH! I "believe" I'm gonna puke. Better go. . .
See ya next week! Until then, be sure to visit TheRingPost.com and
