On with it thenâ<80>¦
Update on the â<80><9c>The Big Sexyâ<80> dinner. Apparently, someone plunked down two grand to dine with Kevin Nash. $2,000! You can get a ringside seat to Wrestlemania and pay for your plane and hotel for that. You could witness history. Instead, you get to watch â<80><9c>TBSâ<80> wolf down a steak while regaling you with his views on Sarah Palin and his innate ability to pour through the New Yorker in a week. Thatâ<80><99>s a lot of bathroom time, Big Kev.
We either need a moratorium on inside references or set up some type of quota. Smackdown airs tonight and features a plethora of inside references. From Triple H referring to Jeff Hardyâ<80><99>s backstage troubles to Hardy hinting at Hunterâ<80><99>s marriage to Stephanie. To me, this is an ongoing annoyance. If he thinks that insider-type wrestling fans make up a vast majority of their audience, theyâ<80><99>re wrong. Yeah, itâ<80><99>s cute in a snickering kind of way, but when you break down that fourth wall, you may hear the sound of remotes from the majority of audience members clicking to a new channel.
Hulk Hogan no longer has the corner on the market of familial problems. Apparently, â<80><9c>Nature Girlâ<80> Ashley Flair can chop her way through a few cops while her BF beats up on daddy. Ugh. How do things deteriorate so quickly in a family? We have been forced to watch the Hogan clan self-destruct before our very eyes. The idea that Flair may go through personal angst complete with media scrutiny is equally sad. The guy even wants to do a reality show with his son. Whoo? I think not.
Jeff Jarrettâ<80><99>s back. I, for one, am glad. Iâ<80><99>ve always enjoyed Jarrett on the stick and in the ring. Yeah, he owns part of the company and has reigned as champ, but thatâ<80><99>s the way the business has worked for many, many years. Anyone remember Erik Watts? When daddy Bill ran WCW in the early nineties, Erik got a super-push to the World TV title. Now heâ<80><99>s in the â<80><9c>Where Are They Now/What the Hell Were They Thinkingâ<80> category. THAT guy was undeserving. Jarrett has a passion for this business, similar to his WWE counterpart Triple H, and the talent to back up his spot in, yes, his company.
Santino Marella is really growing on me. Canâ<80><99>t get enough of that unibrow. Heâ<80><99>s becoming the 21st century version of the Honky Tonk Man. A guy who won the Intercontinental title by largely happenstance. Now, he reins supreme and eeks out victory after victory. Honky held the strap for over a year. Hereâ<80><99>s to a lengthy Marella reign.
