In The Wrong Era

Scott, Who are some guys that didn't do much in their career, but if they'd come around in a different era you could see them being a main event player? Bad News Brown.  He would have ruled the Attitude Era.  Can you even imagine him as the angry mouth piece of the Nation against Austin?

Tuesday Night Thread

Well, I don’t know how they’re gonna top RAW for newsworthiness, but tonight is the go home show for Evolution, so maybe they’ll try. Elsewhere, the World Series begins, and the Conners continues trying to milk the grave of Roseanne’s career. Have a great night!
