It’s that time again, yes time for a Stunt Granny Audio Show. They boys talk all sorts of madness this week as they cover the big story as well as the strange. Just why is Kharma out over nine months? What does this have to do with Hugh Grant? Is Triple H’s reputation taking a hit already? And that is all. Somehow our audio recording program fucked you, our loyal audience, out of our take on Randy Savage, Over The Limit PPV, Monday Night Raw and other incredible goodness. So, instead of scrapping the entire show we are giving you what we have so listen. It’s something to listen to at least. Fuck.
This is the start of a larger conversation the Stunt Granny crew is currently having via instant message. (Did I say “currently”? Because I meant “after business hours.”) This is also a small chunk of a larger list of wrestlers whose mainstream acceptance and recognition we intend to discuss soon. We just want to get your thoughts on a few of the outliers (or in Hall and Nash’s case, outsiders). The wrestler(s) who gets your vote is the one whose name Joe Q. Sixpack would most likely respond to with, “Oh yeah, that wrestler,” as opposed to, “Who in the hell are you talking about, hillbilly?” As always, leave a comment!
(Author’s note: It didn’t even click with me that this same discussion is happening in the Bruce Mitchell Zone of the PWTorch.com VIP Forum, and that thread started because of a Bruce Mitchell Audio, to which I don’t listen anymore. That’s OK, multiple perspectives are welcome. And the Ultimate Warrior does belong in the discussion.)
The picture will make sense when you read the review.
Joe Dombrowski introduced Vic Travagliante as color commentary again. N8 Mattson takes on Jason Bane in the main event while Jason Gory takes on Michael “The Bomber” Facade. Corey Winters takes on Bobby Beverly for the TV Title. Beverly came to the ring with Nicki Valentino. Winters came out second as the challenger. Odd. Pedro De Lucca went with the formal introductions. Valentino takes over for Tavagiante on color. Beverly gets the upper hand early. Good suplex from Beverly. Beverly drop kicks Winters in the head as he’s on his hands and knees. They put a graphic up saying “More action after the break”.
Analysis: I’d imagine the graphic was added because they usually have a call to the commercial break so it wasn’t planned until post production, in my opinion. A pretty lazy start to the match. There wasn’t quite enough action to want to keep me involved. I’ll wait to grade it though.
Dombrowski tried to ask Valentino about Aeroform but he was so goofy, Dombrowski abandoned the line of questioning. Winters got in some punches and kicks. Winters went for the Snap Mare Driver but Beverly pushed him into the mat face first. Beverly gave him a thrust kick, waited then tagged him with another. Valentino said Sex Appeal values wrestling. They pimp the main event again and other match again.
Analysis: I think the match was wrestled well. Winters and Beverly have both progressed over the last couple of years. That being said, the stuff surrounding the match wasn’t good. Valentino doesn’t seem to have a good grasp of his character. He needed to say more goofy shit to live up to the gimmick. Dombrowski could have led him more but acted upset and abandoned questions that could have led Valentino down the goof path. Dombrowski also need to hype the win a bit more to me. Beverly showed a sadistic side by waiting to give Winters the second thrust kick. He did point out what a roll was inter was on but didn’t translate it well after the victory. Score 0(more…)
