Welcome back to yet another edition of the Phat Daily Column. Yes, I'm late, so forgive me for sleeping in for once. Besides, I'm much more awake, so that makes for a nicer Mr. Tito, right? Well nothing spices up my mood like a nice serving of
Chunder Thunder. What better way to spend your Wednesday evening, right? On to the PDC!
Lance Storm came out, once again(as I missed the Nitro one), and fought the Artist. This is his opening feud? Oh well, I guess you have to start somewhere. I just love how the crowd was slightly silent for his appearance. While the announcers were saying "Oh my God, it's Lance Storm!!", the fans were just standing there, with a FEW ECW chants. Just a little bit. Hey, I know how to get him over!!!! Let him get on the mic, and have everyone hear how lame he truly is. Then he could say "From Calgary, Alberta, Canada", and everyone would love him right? HA!
Well, the personal feud with Vampiro and Demon or should I say, Dale Tornburg(sp?) or however his last name is pronounced. Hey, guess what...a woman was kidnapped on Nitro, as Vampiro took Asya and hid her from Demon. No woman has ever been kidnapped on any WCW program, right? I've found the problem with Vampiro!! Instead of wrestling, he's more of an angle guy now. That man can do great things in the ring, but yet he's more involved in backstage things or just something to "get the Pay Per View match over". Sigh, I miss the Vampiro of old.
I like this stuff with Terry Funk teaching Johnny the Bull to be HARDCORE. That should bring SOME interest to the rematch with Big Vito. Speaking of Big Vito, he defeated the Wall last night! Alright, finally de-pushing the Wall! How the Wall could even be considered to get a push, let alone lace the boots of other wrestlers is still unknown to me. Good job Vito! I do wish the Mamalukes were still a team, because they were a very talented team...just that they were in the Sullivan era where there were NO tag teams to fight besides the Harris Boys. Speaking of the Harris boys, where the hell are they these days?
My gosh, the main event scene is pretty bad here in WCW too. Yes, I agree that the WWF main eventers are stale right now, but you have Jeff Jarrett as champ? Hogan is his contender? Yuck. Goldberg and Nash would be better if they didn't already fight on Nitro a few weeks back...and you know Scott Hall will probably turn on Nash at the Bash at the Beach. It's all about the swerve baby!
By the way, Good job to Chad Kincaid, the new Thunder results guy!
I don't know if this is in your area or not, but new Pay Per View videos in my area are anywhere from $40 to $50 when they first come out by the WWF. That hurts, considering I buy each and every Wrestlemania that comes out to keep up with my 1-14 box set. That's a pretty rough price for the WWF to shoot for, especially if it was a Pay Per View that wasn't liked. But then again, if the demand for the certain video is up, like how I'm going to purchase it, then why not charge so high? Argh.
