Stunt Granny Audio Show #150 part 2

OK, so we blathered on too long about Money In The Bank so we felt obligated to cover Monday Night Raw since it was actually important. Why the hell was everyone bitching about this episode? Was it a logical step to have a tournament? Would it matter what WWE did or would the same people bitch and moan no matter what.? Who stood out on Monday night? Were any new stars made? Was “I love you Pops” as funny the next day as it was on Monday? You just have to listen to find out.

Grantland.com continues coverage of CM Punk-John Cena-Vince McMahon storyline

Everybody Loves CM Punk

For those of you who aren’t wised up to Grantland.com yet, well, you better get smart, buddy! Created by Bill Simmons of ESPN Page 2 fame, Grantland.com is a great time-killer with some fine long-form column writing by prosiasts such as Chuck Klosterman, Andy Greenwald, and David Shoemaker, who fancies himself the professional wrestling expert of the site (this inclusion should come as no surprise, since Simmons commonly reports on pro wrestling via his ESPN platforms) under the nom de plume “The Masked Man.” He’d only score more points with me if he called himself the Yellow Dog.

Anyway, Shoemaker cobbled together the cluster of facts, myths, rumors and assumptions from the past month of WWE television to shine a more mainstream light on our latest great worked-shoot storyline, beginning with CM Punk complaining about his perceived value within WWE via Twitter, continuing with his epic speech where he ripped back the curtain on WWE’s backstage politics, climaxing with Punk taking the WWE Title off John Cena’s waist and placing it prominently, um, in his refrigerator, and trudging forward with a Bigfoot sighting in the form of Triple H taking WWE’s reins in a reflection of a transition that’s probably going to happen over the next few years. Shoemaker has a great outsider point of view on the whole thing, one that’s worth reading and keeping up on. -Eric

Mr. Anderson wants to be done wrestling in five years, can we make it sooner?

Comes complete with torn triceps and dislocated shoulder!

According to Prowrestling.net, TNA’s Ken Anderson, aka Mr. Anderson, told the Dover Post that he’d like to be finished with his in-ring pro wrestling career in five years. The biological alarm clock he calls “a chain of push-derailing injuries while in WWE” suggests sooner, but hey, with Anderson talking about quitting, we’ll take what we can get.

“If I’m still doing this five years from now, please, just shoot me,” Anderson said.

It’s already on my calendar, friend.*

“I love the wrestling business, I love entertaining people, but it doesn’t define me.”

Oh, well, let us know when you plan to start entertaining people again. I mean, you can only ride a dead horse so far, and the only reason you’re overusing the word “asshole” is because that term is somehow more socially acceptable than “douchebag,” another word a) you’d happily drive into the ground like a beat-up Chevy Cavalier and b) the audience would find entertaining only because they’d get to say it loudly and proudly on national TV. Those hillbillies don’t love you, they just love to curse and spit. And yes, they probably kiss their mamas with those mouths. Real deep and tongue-like. Yep, that’s who you’re “entertaining” these days. Anyway, T minus four years and 364 days! -Eric
