Stunt Granny Audio #163

Kevin and Dusty just want to say hello with Stunt Granny Audio #163. Therein they dissect the happenings of the ghoulish Halloween edition of Monday Night Raw. What did our heroes think of the integration of the Muppets onto the program? Does the Rock convey “old” better than any wrestler since Hulk Hogan? What was up with the terrible production values on this show? Who smokes more, Kate Moss, Morton Downey Jr. or AJ? What wrestler has had a Heath Slater amount of losses on television the last couple months? Are the Pittsburgh Steelers the most interesting team in the NFL? Why does John Cena *always* have to win? They delve into these issues and so much more, and it’s only going to cost you about an hour of your time, so listen or death!

Stunt Granny Show #163

Kevin’s Blog: Almost Live, Definitely Half Assed Review of Raw

Florence is where I learned to love wine.

Tonight is not a night for a #SippyTimeBeer because I’m making tomato sauce. Any time I cook a sauce or usually when I make any Italian dish, I bust out the wine for the night. Every now and again, event the fellows at Stunt Granny have some level of sophistication. They make a killer wine in Tuscany (Florence’s state) that is called Chianti that is a mix of grapes and is my favorite. I used a California wine called Menage a Trois which is pretty much the same thing since it’s a mix of Zinfandel, Merlot & Cabernet Sauvignon. Good stuff. And remember tomato sauces = red wine and cream sauces = wine white. Time for wrestling. Let’s roll.

Evidently the Rock can only film from the same mountain top. Rock turns down Cena’s offer. Rock is looking really ripped. Glad the WWE finally put up an “Earlier Today” sign. The Rock is teaming with him for the people. The crowd even realizes how anti-climatic this announcement is. What the hell is the director doing with the long shot that doesn’t even show the video? It doesn’t make fun of children who root for Cena. Naturally it’s a threat to Cena too.

CM Punk takes on Mark Henry. Glad they waited a whole week to show the ring being broken. I’m so glad I didn’t order that PPV. I like the look of concern on Punk’s face. Even as much as I love Punk, he better get the “I can see it miles away” interference from Big Show to win. Ricardo assaults Henry to try and get him the DQ. The director fucks up again by not showing Ricardo getting the World’s Strongest Slam. Nice way to stretch out an eventual match.

We are privileged to have the Rock on actual program in two weeks. The Muppets get interrupted by “Excuse Me”. Jack Swagger gets to suck. Kermit & Piggy might pull him out of this. Santino gets in on the act. It’s a train wreck. The guy working the Muppets show more emotion than Swagger. Kelly gets to flirt with Kermit.

During the commercials, Emmitt Smith was hocking some foot insert then I got a Don King commercial. Continue the ridiculousness. The Divas Battle Royal was “hilarious” with the costume run down before the match starts. Alicia Fox wins this thing since she won last week? Nope. Eve wins again. They threw that match together so I can see stretching this thing out. I like the idea of a threesome taking on Beth & Natalya. Christian picks on poor Beaker. Sheamus acts like they’re in the same family.

The Muppets to guest star on WWE Monday Night Raw on Halloween

"That idea isn't half bad!" "Nope... it's ALL bad!"

According to a Tweet by Joey Styles (and an article at WWE.com), the Muppets will guest star on the Halloween night edition of Monday Night Raw. Some Twitter users with wrestling Web sites may see this news and react with a big “God help us all,” but not this guy. My childhood was made up of three things: pro wrestling, Bob Barker, Pee-wee Herman, a lot of sugary cereal, Huey Lewis & the News albums, glass bottles of Pepsi, and the Muppets. Now, WWE, which, whether they’d like to admit it or not, is pro wrestling, has recently brought in Bob Barker and Pee-wee Herman as guest hosts of Monday Night Raw. I doubt the next few weeks will see cameos by sugary cereal, glass bottles of Pepsi and Huey Lewis albums, so you have no idea how excited I am to see the Muppets on Raw. They’re endearing, they’re funny (assuming they get to write their own material), and they can’t be physically harmed or threatened by WWE’s roster. That didn’t stop WCW from pitting Rick Steiner against Chucky, but even WWE is smarter than that, right? Right?? -Eric

Hulk Hogan on Larry King Live (ugh), Jimmy Fallon (UGH)

Hulk Hogan

So, are they playing Rock Paper Scissors, or are they arguing over what Hulk is gonna do to Brooke later?

Hulk Hogan is releasing a new book, brother, that is sure to be full of revelations about his and his family’s pathetic lives, dude. And not only has Hogan become a parody of a real celebrity, BRAH, he’s beginning to make the talk-show rounds, you stinky, nasty, wart-infested brothers! According to Prowrestling.net, Hogan will be on Larry King Live tonight at 9 EST/8 CST (wait, are we on standard or daylight right now? eh, fuck it), and you can bet grizzled ol’ Larry will really rake the Hulkster over the coals. Better yet, maybe King will fall ill and be replaced by Kermit the Frog again! Then the insufferable Jimmy Fallon will host the No. 1 Hulkamaniac on “Late Night with Dipshit McGee” on Thursday night. If you thought Fallon was awkward and unfunny already, what’s he gonna do when Hogan’s mannish daughter, slut wife and brain-dead family friend come up, dude?! Set your DVRs, people! -Eric
