Welcome back to the Phat Daily Column. Well, I have lots to discuss today, as the Phat Movie Review makes its way back to the PDC, and I also will chop up ECW on TNN. Ready to Rumble is the one getting the review today, as I will do my best to let you know if it's good or not. Without further ado, on to the Phat Daily Column, which doesn't take Saturdays off.
-Well, it's official now, Triple H and Chyna are no longer a couple from what I reported yesterday. That does sadden me, as they made a rather cool couple. I doubt they travel together anymore, which I was always baffled by the WWF allowing them to do so. I guess the both of them will now just move on with their lives, and persue different relationships. Is it just me, or has Triple H and Stephanie been REALLY close lately? There is a thing called acting, and then there is a thing called real, and they have been all over each other on camera. Must be some good acting, eh?
-Word from the back is that Trish Stratus is already somewhat of a headcase. That's not good for Trish to do that because the WWF doesn't tolerate any headcases in the back...especially women(see Luna Vachon). So for her to act like she's the best thing since sliced bread, don't be surprised if the WWF cuts her loose in a few months. She's very expendable in the WWF's eyes, as they have plenty of those willing to be on television like she already is. Plus, you could put a robot out there with T&A, and they still wouldn't be over!
-Reports are coming in that TNT won't be airing in the UK. This shuts out UK fans from getting the chance to see their favorite Dubbya Cee Dubbya stars in the ring. Ouch. They better hope that another station syndicates it, or else they are hurting. Poor guys.
Throughout the time where they are trying to get King back into wrestling, stuff really gets out of hand. I mean, whoever wrote this script needs their head checked because a lot of dialogue is strange and they do things out of know where, if you know what I mean.(like doing some things without a purpose) Anyway, it's a comedy, as it provides a few things to really laugh at, but for the most part, it's really cheesey. Lots of weird happenings in this movie.
A few things to note. It's funny seeing Perry Saturn in the movie, as he's the only radical to be in it. Just seeing him with WCW wrestlers is really odd for me. Also, the in ring wrestling action is spectacular. They really make wrestling seem real, as all of the moves are amplified to sound like they really hurt. Especially the main event, which was a treat to watch.
Overall, the movie is watchable, but again with some of the scripting and the strange happenings, things could have been a little better. Oh well, I didn't mind seeing it, so I'll give it a
Steve Corino vs. Kid Kash was an OK match, as Corino in the cowboy outfit has a striking resemblance to Bobby Duncum Jr., no offence to him. Corino gets the win after a DEVASTATING spear by Rhino.
Here would be my ad for next week's show: Want repetition? Want to see a match that you've seen a few times already? Then tune into ECW on TNN to see Little Guido vs. Super Crazy vs. Tajiri for the television title. Lord knows it's been done before!
Super Crazy vs. Mikey Whipwreck was a damn good match, and it will save this night from the lowest grade(oops, hehe). Whipwreck hit some moves that I've never seen before on the outside, and it was an overall fast paced match up. Good job here fellas. Hey, after the match, Guido and Tajiri run down to set up next week's REPETITIVE match.
Here's the worst garbage I've ever seen. We start off with Sandman and Dreamer vs. the Baldies, right? Before they could fight, ECW cuts to their future shows segment!!!!!!!!! What the hell was that for? Instead of showing a truly violent match from the start, we cut to the damn future shows segment. Oh wait, it gets better! Then, since we were forced to watch that stupid future dates segment, they show us HIGHLIGHTS of what happened in the match. What a crock of shit! Sorry for my language, but ECW deserves this for their wretched production issues. They totally screwed us over on this match, and then they bring it back to the match, which is nearly over. Raven comes down and gets the win for Dreamer and Sandman. Then, Mike Awesome comes down to reveal himself as the person who put a hit on Dreamer. Well, actually that little person named Jeff Jones was the one who put the hit, but lord knows he can't enforce it. At least Awesome will now fight Dreamer or Raven now. Still, this match shouldn't have had that Future Events thing in the middle of it. Total garbage.
Yay, Pulp Fiction time. Hardcore fans love this segment, but I don't. I used to disliked it in 1996 and 1997 because I thought it was a little too strange then. Some of the guys who shouldn't be cutting promos here, are, and making themselves look stupid. Pointless interviews, and the end of the show. Good.
@That's all for today. Always remember that this column consists of opinions, so take your apples lightly. I'll be back tomorrow with more PDC, I hope, so just chill till the next episode.
