Actually, I was going to pay $60 for the Mysterio baseball jersey. But looking back at Nitro, I decided I should just beat up someone who already has it, and steal his instead! As an added bonus, I get to take their shoes, their jacket, their watch, and their cash, too! Thanks, Vince and Ed! [Gives thumbs up.]
Ok, about the heat machine as you call it. Lets call it the furnace. That's a real heat machine. ;-)
I'm gonna catch hell for saying this, but I really don't care at this moment. Vince Russo has taken Nitro and turned it into a circus pandering to the sports entertainment crowd just so he can sell out to the almighty Neilsen. Maybe I'm old-school, but it's World Championship WRESTLING. I'm sick of these short, interrupted matches. I'm sick of seeing people walk for no reason. I'm sick of seeing pathetic excuses to show off T&A on the screen. All I want is wrestling. Yeah, I know, straight wrestling doesn't work anymore, I've heard it before. But, that doesn't mean that turning the product into a WWF-Lite is going to make it any better. There's got to be some differentiation in the product. Heck, there's a reason why some people drink Pepsi over Coke -- they want a different taste.
Sorry if I sounded confrontational, but I had to get it off my chest. On the bright side, Saturn vs. Eddie Guerrero and Dean Malenko vs. Chris Benoit were good matches. Bret Hart vs. Goldberg also showed promise until the inevitable screwjob.
Anyway, thanks for reading, and hopefully I'll be in a better mood when next week's Thunder hits. Until then, take care, and F*** You, WCW.©
