Why I Boycott Jack TV

Standard

It’s summer again.

You might be wondering where I’ve been.

I graduated. From high school. That suck of an institution, in reality. Been on a Stephen King frenzy. I’ve only really read him last summer, but it seems that all I want to do now is buy all his works. I just finished Different Seasons, and I’m just starting in on Blaze. I’d probably proceed to Dolores Claiborne. I don’t know what’s up with me. Don’t know what’s up with this blog. Or with music. Or with today’s literature. Or even with wrestling.

That last one strikes such a bad chord. Two months ago, Jack TV removed WWE from their network. At first, it was just a “satellite-thing”. But then weeks piled up and everyone lost all hope. You should see their Facebook page – it is completely littered with WWE fans ranting about the loss of the program and the establishment of seemingly suckish shows that could never get Jack ratings. 

I don’t think Jack TV will bring back WWE. With Walking Dead, Criminal Minds, NCIS, Family Guy on their team, I’m rooting for FOX now. They already released a teaser for WWE. I’ve been rather hopeful. But it’s taking too long. Yesterday, out of sentimental reasons, I actually turned the pages of my December 2010 copy of the WWE Magazine to the Body Shop and worked out like Dolph Ziggler, thinking, I just want to watch wrestling on my goddamn cable, goddamnit.

Anyway, I’m keeping track of the events that I have missed since WWE was unjustly torn off my cable. Lots of props to Jack TV for this.

 

Whatever happened to Eve and Zack Ryder?

The Miz on Psych

HBK’s “return”

Santino Marella winning the United States Championship

UNDERTAKER VS. TRIPLE H VS. HBK

WRESTLEfuckingMANIA!!121212!!@@!@!@!!!

Lord Tensai?

BROCK LESNAR’S RETURN

That’s about it. Fuck Jack TV.

 

 

The Comedy Never Ends

Standard

Because *someone* decided that he wanted to put an end of Chris Jericho’s career by giving the latter a punt to the skull (I’m looking at you, Randy Orton), some a lot of Y2J’s fans got so concerned as to the point of even “visiting” his Twitter account, and clicking the refresh button every five seconds to see how Chris is doing. After a few days, here are some updates from @IAmJericho:

Listening to a little Michael Kiske…a true melodic vocal genius and my favorite singer of all time!

Due to all of this spare time I have now, I’ve taken up knitting. Just finished up a lovely powder blue petticoat. Any takers?

Enough stalking. All is well that ends well. :>

Edge vs. GM

Standard

This is war.

So who would win in an argument between Edge and a computer the RAW general manager? This has to be the most exciting rivalry on Monday Night Raw! It’s so pleasing that Edge even took the time to have this mysterious GM interviewed on The Cutting Edge – and I must say, that I am impressed that the GM showed bravado, and agreed to be interrogated. However, a computer had to “electronically transmit” the GM’s voice “so as to keep his identity a secret” (much to my irritation). This just about exposed our ears to the most irritating sound ever heard from a device. If it weren’t for that, my endless guesses would have been over.

With all those said, let’s get this debate going!

Edge I think it’s time to ask the first question. I need to ask you exactly, RAW GM, why are you such a spineless coward? (yes, I WONDER why)

GM Why are you such a moron? I remain anonymous to protect my identity. If people knew who I really was, it would change everything.

Edge Okay, first of all, that’s the worst voice ever. Second of all, I thought you were Stone Cold Steve Austin, or, or The Rock, or maybe Shawn Michaels, or Bob Barker. Judging from your decision-making, you’re Lindsay Lohan after another bender. The only thing I know is, whoever you are, you are a big fat liar. (mm-hm!)

GM Seriously, Edge, you hurt my feelings. Why do you have to hate, yo? I try to make peace with you but you clearly don’t want that. You want a confrontation. Why? Why do you despise me so?

Edge Why do you despise me? Why do you keep interfering in my business? Why – why am I arguing with a computer? We’ve gone from Stone Cold stunning, Mr. McMahon on RAW to Edge arguing with a computer. You know what? That’s it. I’m just gonna go ask Chris Jericho exactly who you are. (wtf? You can do that all along?)

GM Jericho is nothing. He knows nothing. However, I know a lot of things like your opponent right now. Ha ha ha ha ha.

Edge Ha ha, I don’t have an opponent tonight. You know what? I talk to people. I’m sick of talking to an overgrown speaking spell.

But the GM did give Edge an opponent, and eventually, Cena did have Edge beat. But this whole thing just wasn’t going to end there. Because…

HOLY CRAP - TOP THAT!

That’s right, GM! It was Edge who prevailed and had the last laugh after all.

Also, I would like to print out this retraction. Obviously, Michael Cole cannot be at two places at the same time, so I better cross him out of my list as most likely to be the new GM. No direct apologies to Cole, though, until I find out just exactly who this GM is. And also because I don’t like him that much.

Roulette, You’re Goin’ Round in a Spin

Standard

Will you be able to guess who's who?

Here are a few brain teasers for you to be able to not determine who’s who:

  1. William Regal doesn’t wear paint on his face, but in this episode, he actually did.
  2. Goldust usually poses for the slow-mo take in his entrace (JoMo must have ripped that off *I’m eying you, Shaman*), but in this episode he didn’t.
  3. Goldust did all his trademarks.
  4. William Regal used his brass knuckles.

Here are the other good things that happened on RAW’s “Roulette Wheel” episode.

  • The Miz’s confrontation with Chad Ochocinco. Though Miz sort of bores me nowadays.
  • Ted DiBiase singing Frank Sinatra’s My Way for the Sing and Dance Contest, with Maryse for his back-up dancer (thank heavens, neither one got shot!).
  • John Morrison’s Super Mario-like work-out.
  • The GM reconsidering Chis Jericho’s spot on Night of Champions (FINALLY, HE HAS SEEN THE LIGHT… he must have read my letter :>)
  • Chris Jericho defeating The Hart Dynasty in a Steel Cage Match.
  • Edge dancing to You Spin Me Right Round!!!

That’s all I have. -___-

A Letter to RAW’s Anonymous GM

Standard

Dear GM,

I am going to be blunt about this: my dislike towards you and to the very computer in front of you is starting to build up more and more each week. Not only do I verily suspect that you are in fact Michael Cole but I also don’t appreciate the latter dictating your orders. Out of cowardice, you decided that lashing out on Chris Jericho and Edge for deserting their teammates last week would seem like a great, even marvelous, idea. You are a very funny thing, GM. It’s as though you don’t even know Edge and Jericho at all: of course they would desert their teammates. I would have done the same thing, if not for the presence of the beautiful Randy Orton. And anyway, if Team WWE winning meant a lot for you that much, then you should have fired The Nexus the first time you had the chance. Do you see the logic there? Playing with Chris Jericho’s and Edge’s opportunity of winning the WWE Championship will not solve your problems in life (and who knows how many personal problems you probably have…). WWE Management is already doing just that, and I do hold grudges towards them as well (don’t worry, you’re not the only one at fault here). But you don’t have to make it any worse, either. Chris Jericho should not have been thrown out of the Six Pack Challenge come Night of Champions. In fact, he shouldn’t even had been in that match against John Morrison in the first place. He is the best at what he does. I know it, you know it, and everybody in the world knows it. This should not be the look on his face after a match that he competed in. You are impossible (and may even be a little jealous of him) if you would not reconsider his loss.

Truly yours,
BobKat

Once upon a time I had three best friends in this business… Now I am on my own. F€$k it all and f@&kin no regrets.

It’s a Shame for Fame

Standard

Since RAW‘s mystery GM gave Sheamus, the ever so foolish option of choosing his opponent for Night of Champions, The Celtic Warrior was all eyes on the matches that his possible opponents contested in that night. Simultaneously, I was also placing bets on my favorites. I assume you were doing the same thing. But who did Sheamus pick as the number one contender for his WWE gold? Is it:

  1. Edge
  2. Chris Jericho
  3. Randy Orton
  4. John Cena
  5. Wade Barrett

Tick-tock. Tick-tock. Tick-tock.

Okay, pencil’s up! The correct answer is…

None of the above! It was actually The Long Island Loudmouth, Zack-Attack, Zack Ryder! Woo, woo woo! You know it.

Anyway, this event only led to Chris Jericho, Edge, John Cena, Randy Orton, and Sheamus beating up Wade Barrett, which really wasn’t half as worse as what The Nexus had done in the past month. Not really very entertaining.

Wade Barrett IS the Next Break Out Supastah!

Standard

The only worse thing about writing a delayed entry, is actually not having to watch this NXT episode on the television. I only got a preview of this win on SmackDown! – which I think is very much advance on Jack TV (me likey) – and I read the reports on WWE.com. Well, here’s what went down on the last pro tally.

Two NXT rookies. Seven WWE pros. One Matt Striker.
WHO WILL BE THE NEXT WWE BREAK OUT SUPERSTAR?

Notice JeriMiz sitting next to each other. Chris Jericho is proud. The Miz is ecstatic. R-Truth and Matt Hardy are both contemplative. William Regal is blunt. Christian is analytic.And OMG!!! IS THAT A MASK ON CM PUNK?!

The NXT pros are busy working on their clipboards. This is a serious moment. It really takes time. So solemn in fact that the pros can’t help but voice out their opinions to the general public. And that includes… THESE GUYS! Remember them? You don’t? Okay, that’s cool too.

Oh NOW you've both turned humble!

Wade Barrett or David Otunga — who is it going to be?

AND THE WINNER IS
WADE BARRETT!

Aw. A teacher, a student... and a loser by the corner.

As @WWEJCena tweeted, Wade Barrett, welcome to the lion’s den!

And they all lived happily ever after.
