Stunt Granny Audio #116: WWE Bragging Rights Live Recap Edition

minneapolis

It's bright lights, it's the big city!

Hey kids, it’s a very special edition of the Stunt Granny Audio, as good SG friend Nathan Timm, aka Mr. Mauer, aka Mr. Morneau joins us on a windy Tuesday night to discuss WWE Bragging Rights, a pay-per-view event he attended in his hometown of Minneapolis, Minn. Dusty and Eric grill him on the turnout and the crowd’s reactions to various events during the show. How did Minnesotans react to the likes of CM Punk and Daniel Bryan? Or John Cena and Randy Orton? What did they think of the shenanigans at the ends of the two world title matches? And how much of the crowd would have rather seen the Packers-Vikings game live? Click to listen, silly! It’s for your health.

And P.S. What’s up with this??

Stunt Granny Audio- Bragging Rights 2010 Recap

Kane Versus Edge and It Isn’t 2005.

Hey it’s 2005 all over again. Spoiler alert if you didn’t read the headline. On this coming Friday’s edition of Smackdown, Edge becomes the number one contender for the Heavyweight title. This wouldn’t be news, but since it is Kane, it certainly becomes news. See, you know how we and other people bitch about no new stars and the same tired feuds in WWE? Well, this is a prime example of that. This match up between Kane and Edge is yet another rehash of a feud from 2005. Will WWE acknowledge this? Probably not in any great detail but it is worth noting here.

Is this the start of a Kane nostalgia tour? He has gone through the Undertaker phase. He is now in his Edge phase. He has the Big Show on the horizon. Then there is the inevitable Undertaker return. Maybe they can pry RVD away from TNA. OK, that was a total joke, because all it would take is a piss supplier and copious amounts of Blue Dragon to get RVD back. Then there is always Matt Hardy, but they released him for being fat and unmarketable now, so that boat may have sailed. Unless they bring him back for a final squash, but Matt wouldn’t know what a squash is to begin with. I mean look at the guy. The only squash he knows is when he presses a marshmallow between two chocolate covered Twinkies. Yes, Matt Hardy fat jokes live on.

You do realize that disguised in the same fat jokes and clumsy logic, WWE has no new feuds? The Kane Nostalgia Tour is evidence of this. Over on Raw they are already underway with Randy Orton and John Cena probably headlining WrestleMania. So as it stands now, WrestleMania will probably be a rehash of Cena/Orton and Undertaker/Kane. Sigh. -Jeremy

WWE “Tough Enough” may return, Jeff Hardy not allowed on airplanes

"Hey kids!"

According to Prowrestling.net, Jeff Hardy appeared on a CBS talk show, appropriately titled “The Talk,” on Tuesday to surprise a little boy (via video; god damn, can’t he take any time out of his busy schedule of wrestling three times a month and building 20-foot-tall wooden men in his backyard to visit this kid in real life?) who’s been bullied in school. The boy will be flown out to Orlando to watch a TNA taping. I thought this was a *surprise*. Then again, a tongue in the ass at 6 a.m. is a surprise, but that doesn’t make it good. The boy was also given a bunch of TNA memorabilia, including Kurt Angle’s little black book of big black women, Vince Russo’s “Pamphlet to Successful Booking, Copyright 1999” and Orlando Jordan’s pasties. Running around school covered with TNA merchandhise, huh? Nope, this kid isn’t getting bullied anymore.

Also according to Prowrestling.net, WWE reality show “Tough Enough” may make its return, this time to the USA Network. The format may feature some tweaks, says the post, which I venture to guess include not being the least fucking bit like NXT and not including Bob “Spark Plugg” Holly as a trainer. USA is also asking WWE to hire a production company that actually knows how to create good reality TV. The only good producers of reality TV are the ones that use my band Hold For Swank‘s music in the background.
