Stunt Granny Audio #25
(Eric’s first attempt at posting audio; if it doesn’t work right away, check back tomorrow!) This edition of the Stunt Granny Audio features Eric and Kevin discussing WWE’s roster cuts, who didn’t get their proper shot, who had plenty, and which referee Eric used to profess his love for. They wonder what’s next for Chris Jericho after his “firing” and how Vince McMahon’s return might affect Stephanie’s decision. Other topics include Jack Swagger winning ECW’s big toy belt, Legacy finally settling on the three white guys, and WWE’s PG rating causing name changes for John Cena’s finishing moves (and how any smart marketer would jump on these changes). All this and not much more, one click away!

It was Mike Chioda who was neighbors with the Marellas.
No one else made their debut on the PPV Mordecai debuted in. He took on Scotty 2 Hotty in a ten star masterpiece. Rene Dupree was on that PPV, but he had already been around like a year, and was taking on Cena in a title match. (I had to look up that last part.)
Mark Henry is fucking awesome.
This is the show I was thinking of. It was not Mordecai’s PPV debut, but it was obviously just as “memorable” (the moral of this story being, who cares):

Thank you, Pro Wrestling History Dot Com.
I always thought it was called the STFU because Cena applies so much pressure when he locks his hands, even U can do it.
