During a commercial break of "The Late, Late Show," one of the commercials was for, I believe, C&M bail bonds in Hannibal, MO. What caught my attention about the spot was that their spokesperson was none other than Glacier. Not Ray Lloyd, but Glacier. Complete with albino eye. Since Hannibal is only about 100 miles from Springfield, IL, I wonder if Buff Bagwell called Glacier back in May.
Also of note, this weeks episode of Walker: Texas Ranger is about a wrestling champion that dies in a freak accident while, what looked like, descending into the ring.
That reminds me of another wrestling-related honeymoon story. We were in our room one afternoon, watch daytime TV (i.e. Jerry Springer). There was a local commercial for a credit repair agency, and it featured Mr. T in full regalia.
Oh, how the mighty have fallen. It was a really low-budget job.
By the way, on the Walker: Texas Ranger issue, I didn't see the show myself, but I thought it worth commenting on since I've gotten mail saying the episode was in poor taste. I guess, but the fact is that TV will dramatize any tragedy...that's just the way it works.
I'm actually entertained by the Stevie Ray at the announcing table. He does have the "Dusty Factor," with such poetry as "Suckas Gots to Know" and the like, but I really like how he is, at times, the moral voice of reason.
Like last night at the PPV, when Reno came out to clean house, even though he had no feud with anyone in the ring, Stevie Ray says, "You know, Tony, that just doesn't make any sense." Or when he was describing the difference between a sleeper hold from earlier in the evening to one later, he said, "Tony, he don't have that one cinched in like he needs to..." Three seconds later, the guy broke out of it. Later, someone had one really locked, and Stevie Ray says, "That's a good one right there, he's really got it tight..." and it took the guy down to the mat.
Not even joking, I really think Stevie Ray adds a lot to the commentating, which in all reality, couldn't get much worse.
I was watching the Jarrett/Sting match at Halloween Havoc (yeah, I know, I'll never do that again) and it actually reminded me of something...
There's a point in the console RPG Final Fantasy 8 where the characters travel through time. As the ages are swirling around them, they have to fight successive waves of sorceresses from all across history. Most of the time, a single hit obliterates these sorceresses.
It was all I could think of as Sting confronted the Stings of the Ages and effortlessly disposed of them.
If you think you even know what the shocking thing was, let me know.
While we're on the subject, I think that Jarod had the observation of the century in his Halloween Havoc report. Whoever heard of DNA testing to prove paternity before the baby is born?
