I just got home from the Lexington, KY Thunder show, something happened I wanted to let you know about. Well we all know that they check your signs and make sure there are none that are "anti-establishment" right? So I gladly showed them all of my signs, thinking that I didn't have any problem ones. Well who would have thought that a "John 3:16" sign would be confiscated. The conversation went pretty much like this: (Not exact words, but close)Security: We'll have to confiscate that John 3:16 sign...Interesting, no?
Me: Why? (confused look)
Security: It references WWF with the 3:16...
Me: I think you have it backwards, it refers to the Bible, and WWF stole it from there...
Security: Well we can't have anything from McMahon's outfit on our show....
Me: Whatever, It's not worth arguing about...Take the sign...
[After the Raven/Saturn match] security and Wildcat Willie came out to the ring, pushing a cart filled with free shirts, caps and other goodies. My friend Jody says he sees an open trapdoor on the cart when its wheeled away from the ring. Wonder who THAT could have been?
Two items of note:
- We've hit the big time. I got an e-mail from a college student saying there are two hermit crabs named Chan and Charlie in their marine bio touch tank now.
- The tux that Double A wore tonight was the same one that I wore to the "Unlike Bret Hart" prom this year. The only difference was that Arn wore a black vest and I had to go with the cummerbund since the store was out of black vests my size.
Quite a night wasn't it? I love it when Arn and Ric give those long, powerful speeches without one flub, one missed word, one stumble. It means they're on . . . and fired up. Heck! When Flair started screaming "Fire me! I'm already fired!," even Benoit was smiling! I mean like a funny laughing smile, not his "I'm a bad-ass smile." I haven't seen Benoit smile since the days when he and Woman were making videos for Kevin Sullivan!
Anyway, I thought I'd share this you as I was watching the Nitro from work on satellite. I was watching the feed coming for the production truck and after Flair did his "fire me" thing and went to commercial, the truck kept Flair's mic up, so I got a little extra that I taped while the show was in commercial. Flair did his "it's the best thing goin'" deal which the crowd joined in on, then they played a "clean" (no crowd noise) version of what has to be the New Four Horsemen theme.
You can hear it at --
It has some similarities to the old theme, but has been noticably tweaked -- heavier bass, harder edge to it, has a "thundering herd of horses" leading into it. (Heck, it works with the Wolfpac song, why not?)
