Total Divas Season 3 Recap: Episode 12 - "Baby Not On Board"

In our last episode:
  • Paige was introduced to Nattie who decides Paige is her new BFF because reasons. Paige encourages Nattie to go to a party then plays a mean prank on her: she tells Nattie that the brownies she ate there contained Marijuana, causing Nattie to freak out and fabricate a car accident in order to delay a (MATT: conveniently-timed) drug test by WWE. Paige later confesses. Somehow, they're still BFF's.
  • Nikki learned Brie, JJ and Kathy had spoken to John Cena, causing them to break up. Upon learning the truth, they got back together and Nikki stayed mad at Brie although she forgave her family.
  • Yet, oh, so coincidentally, the twins get a story line where they are at war with each other in WWE. Brie even gets booked to fight Stephanie McMahon at Summer Slam.
Century Link Center in OMAHA, NE 

Backstage
Paige sees Big E and jokes he isn't wearing underwear under his shorts. She chest-bumps him a few times, touches his pecs and jokes how she hopes it’s not sexual harassment and then slaps his chest, plays with his pecs and makes them bounce around.

(MATT: A simple description and picture doesn't do this justice...)


 
TITLES. 

(MATT: Heh...titties.)
It says "TITLES".
(MATT: Whatever...) 

LOS ANGELES, CA 

Eva's Car
Eva Marie and Cameron are in a car, on their way to a fertility doctor Nikki referred Eva to. (MATT: I swear, Cameron is playing the role of JoJo and WWE is hoping we won't notice.) Now that they are married, Jon wants to her pop out "a whole football team".  

Jane Frederick, MD Office - Fertility Clinic
Eva reveals that she developed a cyst and has a heart shape uterus. Eva says they aren't trying to have a kid yet and seems very apprehensive. Cameron tells the doctor that, eventually, they'll have a little "mixture" running around.

(MATT: And, with that assessment, Eva's reproductive system shuts itself down for good.)

The doctor wants to see how fertile Eva by running a lot of tests. The doctor does an exam with Eva in stirrups and tells her someday she will be that position, giving birth. (MATT: "Or you're sterile and my words will be heard in your nightmares for years to come!")

OMAHA, NE - CenturyLink Center for WWE Main Event

Backstage
Brie is backstage, talking with Joe Hickey of WWE Product Development. She tells the camera that they've been waiting for Bella merch for so long and now, they've finally got it. She adds that it's a little weird as Nikki isn't talking to her but they must stay professional at their workplace. But, instead, Nikki decides to get real personal and, risking the merch deal, asks the merch guys if they have siblings and if they would betray them by going behind their backs in order to get an SO to leave them. The merch guys stay silent.

(MATT: "To be honest, I just came here to sneak a look at your cleavage every few minutes...")

Meanwhile, for no discernable reason whatsoever, Reverend Jesse Jackson is backstage. The twins meet him and get pictures. Brie tells the camera she wishes he would preach love to her sister.  

Following this, Brie confronts Nikki and tells her that she's acting unprofessionally. Nikki basically defends herself with the equivalent of "no, you." (MATT: Jesse Jackson didn't help heal them? What a surprise.) They storm off in opposite directions.

Paige is backstage, wreaking havoc as she tends to do. (MATT: She rams a service cart into JoJo "Living Bigfoot Sighting" Offerman, who's also backstage for no discernable reason.) Paige also runs into Alicia Fox who introduces herself to the show. She gets a long promo in which says she was the first African-American Divas champ. She describes herself as "a complete nut". (MATT: Despite the fact that she's nothing like that except for recently.) She want to know where Rosa is as they are "friends". Paige and Fox make fun of Rosa’s dance steps.

Ringside
Fox and Paige watch Layla and Summer Rae take on Natalya and Rosa. In a completely puzzling moment, Paige says she misses Nattie -- then says, "I just saw her two seconds ago. And I miss her today." And Alicia just giggles because she's "fun". Rosa tells the camera that "everything is looking up lately". (MATT: Here comes the Hand of God to smack her back down in 3...2...) At one point in the match, Layla pulls Rosa off the mat, pulling at her trunks -- and ends up accidentally exposing Rosa's bare ass to the crowd. (MATT: I covered this in my Main Event recap for this episode. If I'm not mistaken, you actually saw nothing because WWE Network has all their stuff on time delay in case things like this happen. The screen went to black when Layla reached up to grab her and picked back up once Rosa was on the ground. I don't understand WWE censors. They don't want you to see it then -- but they will let you see it later. Pick a lane.) 

Backstage
Rosa joins them and she hopes Layla, Rosa and Paige will reassure her that barely anything was visible, Instead, they brag about seeing her ass and allude to possibly seeing her vagina had she been bending over. Rosa begins to sob as Paige and Alicia laugh their asses off and speculate that Rosa could lose her job as it’s a PG show. (MATT: How does somebody get fired because something was done to them? That's like one of my co-workers getting fired after I punched them in the face.)

LOS ANGELES, CA 

Javier's (Restaurant)
Cameron is so happy that Eva and her husband are back in California. Cameron pushes her asking if they will raise kids here. Eva's a little unhappy that Jon wants a big family because she doesn't want kids at all. She doesn't want to go through the fertility treatments or go through pregnancy. “I freak out over water weight having a baby in your gut is just a lot.” Also, they are both just starting career-wise and she wants them to soar before they start a family. (MATT: So, no kids because she's vain and won't be on WWE television? How's that any different than now?) She hopes she is infertile so she doesn’t have to say anything to her husband. Cameron gets her to admit she has been lying the whole time about wanting kids. Things moved so fast in their relationship there isn’t time to talk about it she tells the camera. Eva is so blessed, she starts crying. (MATT: Quick! Somebody find Paige and Alicia so they can laugh at her!)

WICHITA, KS 

Gym
Rosa tells Alicia that she has 25,000 more followers and 11,000 more Instagram followers because of the bare ass reveal. She has a plan: to have another "wardrobe malfunction" which "accidentally" exposes her boob. (MATT: Even Alicia Fox calls her nuts, which is almost equal to the scene in Return of the Jedi when Darth Vader realizes just how sadistic the Emperor really is.)

FRIDAY NIGHT SMACKDOWN 

Backstage
Naomi is talking to Alicia backstage. Naomi says Vince saw her near-naked. Naomi laughs about it. Brie appears out of nowhere and is wearing a Brie Mode shirt. Conveniently, Nikki happens to walk by. Brie asks her when their spot is. Nikki ignores her and Brie explains to Alicia and Naomi that Nikki's still mad at her. Nikki tells the camera that Brie "nearly ruined her love life". (MATT: For all of 48 hours.) She tells Brie that she has no time for "a back-stabbing bitch".

Ringside - Nikki vs. Naomi
Nikki gets in some great shots and tells the camera that, throughout the latest break-up scare, she's been "very professional". Nikki says that she is still mad at Brie and wants to take out her anger on Naomi in the ring. Nikki wins easily.

(MATT: Very professional...)
  • Like the time she almost killed a mutually-lucrative merchandise deal by discussing personal matters in front of the merchandise production team.
  • Or calling her own sister names in front of two Divas just because Brie didn't know what time they were supposed to head to the ring. 
  • Or nearly destroying Naomi for realz because she was "angry". 
Backstage 
Brie wants two minutes with John Cena. (MATT: That probably isn't the first time Cena's heard that from a woman.) He gives her two minutes. Brie says it seems like she is always apologizing to him or asking a huge favor. Cena: "Or...trying to ruin my personal life." She tells him that Nikki is still mad at her and wants his help in getting him to forgive her. He explains to Brie that she needs to start by understanding how Nikki feels: had the positions been reversed and Nikki asked Daniel Bryan to lunch to ask him to divorce Brie, she’d feel resentment even if Nikki apologized. John wisely tells her to give Nikki some space. (MATT: Sage advice. Either one of two things is true here: 1) All the women on this show are vapid airheads or 2) they're pretending to be vapid airheads because Vince told them all that MEN do all the smart-talking and explaining on this show.)

Rosa and Alicia’s hotel room 
Rosa is showing a few outfits and how she should have a wardrobe malfunction by exposing her breast. The girls bounce and wrestle on the bed. They practice their moves and how there could be the wardrobe malfunction though blurring out her breast – sorry Matt. (MATT: No need. That's the highlight of the show, censors be damned.) In a weird moment of mental sobriety, Rosa is forced to look at the likely consequences of her actions, which would probably include the both of them losing their jobs. They decide it’s a bad idea but Rosa is happy she gets to hang with (MATT: And get felt up by) her friend. She wishes the other girls would get along with her. Alicia says she shouldn’t let it get to her. Rosa reflects to the camera on how she doesn't get why the girls don't like her. (MATT: Then we see a montage of all the times when Rosa acted like an ass to the other girls, capped off with a clip of her spinning tales to the Divas about her "nervous vomiting" issues. Even the editors can't stand Rosa.)

LOS ANGELES, CA 

Eva Marie and Jon’s house 
Eva is wearing a bikini and looking at herself in the mirror. She's grossed out at how she looks but Jon (MATT: Who lays there, in bed, looking like he's ready to tap it, caveman style...) tells her how hot she is. She says she wants to lose 15 lbs. He asks about her fertility results and when they'll have them. He says it isn't a big deal. Worst case scenario, they adopt some kids. He has them pray that they can have “little miracle babies”. (MATT: Ok...in "Eggs Over Freezing", Jon tells Eva he won't switch his religion. This, despite the fact that he's Christian and she's Catholic. I know that Catholicism is pretty much the slightly smarter, yet still mostly naive, brother to Christianity...but you're telling me that he couldn't have converted to Christianity for one fucking day? The show made it sound like he was Buddhist or Atheist or Agnostic or some other thing. I'm tellin' ya'...this fuckin' show...)

PHOENIX, AZ 

Mama Bella’s House
Brie comes to see her mom and brother so they can discuss the Nikki and Brie situation. (MATT: They didn't learn from the last three disastrous meetings between the three of them?) She tells the camera that Nikki can hold a grudge for a long time. (MATT: Then, they drink shitloads of wine because that's gonna make it all better.) Kathy says she should call Nikki to "check her temperature". Brie kinda agrees and says if they told her there was red wine, she might come over. She says they should "splooge" on Opus One. Kathy makes fun of her for mispronouncing the word "splurge". (MATT: And we turn a serious situation into a "heh, heh, she said penis" moment.) Kathy calls Nikki on speaker phone and tries to smooth things over. Nikki finally realizes the call is on speaker phone though she lies to Nikki that she is alone. (MATT: And, of course, Nikki has the brain of a fucking fly and totally buys it.)

LOS ANGELES, CA 

HRC Fertility Clinic 
Eva's torn. She wants her tests to come back clean because that means she's healthy. On the flip side of that coin, if there's something wrong, then it will be easier to let Jon down. The doctor did, indeed, find a problem: a septum in her uterus, which is a piece of skin growing in the wrong direction that can be easily corrected. But, she still has good eggs and will easily be able to have a child. Now she has to tell Jonathan that she doesn’t want kids.

MINNEAPOLIS, MN - Target Center for Monday Night RAW 

Backstage
Mark Carrano, Senior Director of Talent Relations, calls Rosa over to talk to him. He tells him he knows she was planning a "wardrobe malfunction". Because of this, he's also not sure he should believe the original "bare butt" incident was an accident. (MATT: This was so, so awkward and amusing. Carrano could hardly keep a straight face during this "talk"...especially when he utters the phrase, "bare buttocks".) Rosa asks who told him but Carrano isn't telling. (MATT: Shouldn't it be obvious, you fucking twit?) He tells her that she's close to rising to the top and if she wants that big push, she has to play by the rules. 

Rosa's pissed and confronts Alicia about this. (MATT: Well done there, Sherlock. Your skills of deduction are unmatched.) Alicia said she never told Carrano but was telling the other girls. Rosa: "OMG, I knew it!" (MATT: Get paranoid, Rosa!) "They're always trying to screw me!" (MATT: GET REAL PARANOID!) Moments later, all is forgiven. (MATT: Thank jeebus. My heart was in my goddamn throat over here.)

SAN DIEGO, CA 

John and Nikki’s House 
Nikki says she is not going to the "big cousin dinner" that her family does once a month. All the cousins will be there except for four and it’s close to where they live. Cena really wants her to go and tells her he will go if she does. 

LOS ANGELES, CA

Eva Marie and Jon’s House 
Eva tells Jon that she went to the doctor and that, yes, she can conceive but it’s not what she wants to do. He thinks she means right away; she corrects him that she doesn’t want kids at all. She says she doesn’t have the maternal instinct whatsoever. Jon says he wanted a "basketball team". (MATT: Maybe it's just me...but telling a woman you want to birth as many children as it takes to field a professional sports team doesn't help things...) He asks why she would even want to marry him if she knew that he wanted children. He says she can’t be all about family as she says if she doesn’t want to have a family. She says she never really wanted kids she just kind of went along with it. He said if she has communicated it in the beginning then he would have known what he was getting into.  He says she lied to him and he’s so mad he’s going to go work out. (MATT: "I'm gonna bench-press the HELL out those weights!") Assuming this storyline is real, I think Jon could get an annulment pretty easy in California, citing fraud.

SAN DIEGO, CA 

Barley Mash (Bar) 
It's Bella cousin night and Nikki says she loves family time and won't let Brie ruin that. So, Nikki says hello to Daniel and Brie, then turns her nose up at Brie and immediately goes to hang with a few other cousins. (MATT: Way to "ruin" things, Brie.) Brie watches as Nikki chats with other family members. (MATT: Then watches as Nikki asks the bartender if he's ever stabbed his twin brother in the back.) Meanwhile, Daniel Bryan's wearing a trilby hat. (MATT: Oh, dear lord...)

(MATT: NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO!)

Brie says she's "apologized" for the 27th time this episode. One of her cousins asks why they can't just get along. So Brie approaches Nikki and says she wants to talk. Nikki tells her the same shit we've heard from Cena and Nikki in the last two episodes. Brie explains that she was in the wrong and that she was only thinking of herself. She won't do it again. Nikki explains that it's gonna "take her time". (MATT: BECAUSE THIS FEUD MUST CONTINUE!!!)

LOS ANGELES, CA

Orange County Crossfit (Gym)
Eva Marie has arrived to speak with Jon. (MATT: And to wrap up yet another storyline that had no suspense to begin with.) She convinces him to come to the car (MATT: ...so she can blow him...) to talk to her. (MATT: Same thing.) She says she should have told him the truth but she was scared to lose him because she fell in love with him that fast. He says had she told him back then, he probably would have married her anyway. However, she took the decision away from him, post-marriage. She starts crying and says she can’t be the kind of Mom she has. He says he thinks she will eventually get in her mind that she wants to have kids (MATT: WHAT?!) and then they will be popping out kids left and right.



And, with that, this episode's done.

PUNCHES AND HUGS  

Danielle 

This week’s hug goes to...Alicia Fox: Rosa has only one friend. I guess. And I’m not even sure she can trust her. She thinks that she has to practically be nude to do well in her career and it backfired so hard, that the time she had a legitimate wardrobe malfunction, the execs couldn't trust her due to her future plans to fake one.

This week’s punch goes to...Eva Marie: You don’t flip-flop about having kids in a few minutes, especially when someone is trying to talk you into it. She lied to Jon simply by not telling him she didn’t want them and, yes, that is lying by omission. But you also don’t decide, "Hey...maybe I’ll have a change of heart."


Matt

This week's hug goes to...Paige: This is kinda sad. Paige's addition to the show was most likely meant to elevate this show's plummeting ratings. And Paige is like the Honey Badger: she don't care. She's like a Gremlin. A cute Gremlin. One that slaps man-boobs and runs over washed-up former Divas with service carts. She treats this show like a joke. And it is a joke. In fact, for myself, writing this section of the recap is a lot like Jerry Springer giving you the "What Did We Learn" segment of his talk show: I can't even take half of what I see seriously because it's so unbelievably phony and, so, I just write bullshit to fill space.

Most Annoying Cast Member goes to...Nikki/Brie: I'd put Rosa here but I like boobs. I like Alicia and Rosa wrestling in bed so that we can see some boob. I like how Rosa is a gigantic sexual predator who hits on anything that moves and she hasn't been fired by WWE. And she's gonna do it again: they already showed clips of her making out with Paige, so we have that to look forward to. But, I have to say that Nikki and Brie's "angle" is so fucking awful. Every scene is "So, I'm mad at my sister because she ruined my love life", followed by, "I totally apologized and I just want my sister back", followed by "You're a bitch, Brie", followed by, "I tried to apologize"...and it just keeps going in circles -- AND IT STILL ISN'T RESOLVED.




Er, that's it.

  1. Not sure what happened to the text on this, but it is very distracting. The font is not the standard font and the size changes in various places. It reads very much like a ransom letter.

  2. Let me fix it. When I originally wrote this, it was sent to Matt via Gmail and there might have been a slight formatting error.

    ReplyDelete
  3. ^ Certified Bro.

    ReplyDelete
  4. If Eva is looking to lose 15 pounds then that tit job was a big mistake.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Should be fixed now. Sorry about that, Danimal.

    ReplyDelete
  6. All fixed.

    ReplyDelete
  7. "demolition came out to theme music for the first time." Remember it was just an early instrumental version with no Rick Derringer yet. It wouldn't be until late 87/way 88 after Piledriver that they officially changed

    ReplyDelete
  8. At one point, Jon DOES tell Eva that she can remove her boobs. She pretty much tells him to fuck off.

    ReplyDelete
  9. 95 has a shit Rumble but a pretty good undercard.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Also, how difficult would it have been for them to find actual Mankind and Warrior figures?

    ReplyDelete
  11. I don't like 2010 that much. Scott gave it ****3/4 but I don't see it.

    I love the Punk stuff though.

    ReplyDelete
  12. It's got a bad rep for being the only minute Interval rumble.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I love Paige even more now.

    ReplyDelete
  14. also, probably Big Show's best performance ever

    ReplyDelete
  15. I like your version better. He dodges the move, which emphasizes that he's mobile, as well as big.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I can get aesthetically why some women would want larger breasts (I wish I could go down a size myself, but I get why they want to go bigger). From an athletic point of view though, i can't think of any women's sport in which a woman's performance is enhanced with larger ones, quite the opposite even in golf, let alone a full contact sport....Still, this company seems to reward looks over ability quite a lot.

    ReplyDelete
  17. It's been a long time since I've watched the 04 Rumble, but it's ***** all day with a helluva finish. I mean the 92 finish is kinda screwy and Benoit goes over clean as a sheet.

    I get why people would ignore it though.

    ReplyDelete
  18. It works for me because of 1.) Savage's babyface formula at the time was taking a shit kicking, avoiding a catastrophic move, and hitting the elbow out of nowhere. 2.) He was beaten senseless. I still like the kickout elimination, for kayfabe reasons. I don't disagree with someone else saying they could've accomplished the same effect with Yoko no-selling or whatever, but why not do something never before done and put over someone's strength at the same time?

    ReplyDelete
  19. From 'Taker's elimination until Yoko's arrival, agreed. One of the weakest, most heatless 20 minutes in Rumble history (until most of the mid 90 Rumbles had the same limited appeal). The rest was perfectly fun stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Watching RR 90. Nothing says heel like neon blue tights with multi color flowers.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I think everybody agrees 99 is the worst. The debates for 2nd between 96 and 06.

    ReplyDelete
  22. "but you're telling me that he couldn't have converted to Christianity for one fucking day? "

    As someone who started Catholic and is currently Baptist - nope, it totally doesn't work that way.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Agree with your general assessment, here. It would have been a lot better, I think, if Yoko kicked out, then quickly(as quickly as possible, anyway) got up and threw him over the top.

    ReplyDelete
  24. You could have become Jewish. Even Jesus was Jewish!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Yeah but he'd have to ask three times. Hassle.

    ReplyDelete
  26. No wonder the Internet loves dbry. It all makes sense now.

    ReplyDelete
  27. So...does it take magic potion or something then? I don't get it...

    ReplyDelete
  28. Matt should just have a bit at the end. The constant bold, overly sarcastic sentences mid-recap are distracting and really take away from an otherwise good recap.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I was actually thinking that for the last week. There are times when this feels disjointed. I figured we could try something different, like a co-written thing with no caps. We'll brainstorm and see what happens.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Wasn't that the point, though? I can't remember.

    ReplyDelete
  31. "It's a baaaaaad time to be Scotty 2 Hotty"

    ReplyDelete
  32. He tried to lift the Undertaker!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I've been saying that since the beginning. Good luck! I hope you both find your voices.

    ReplyDelete
  34. You have been saying it. And, honestly, it was your suggestion a long time ago ("their format is a mess") that got me thinking of a way to make it readable.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Good luck. I wish you both the best.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I didn't see her looks really going downhill until she was in WCW, even then, though she had gained weight, she had a hot thickness going on.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Another nice, logical touch....Gorilla becoming more and more impressed with Flair the longer he stays in the match. A bad face announcer would've kept harping on Heenan for the entire thing, but by the end, Gorilla keeps his comments to himself since Flair has clearly proven he's a great wrestler and worthy potential champ.

    ReplyDelete
  38. We could, but then we have to list how much we are drinking in between - maybe even do a Divas shot game?

    ReplyDelete
  39. True. I Forgot all about the lyrics.

    ReplyDelete
  40. The sarcasm mid recap is what keeps it entertaining

    ReplyDelete
  41. I guess...I've just always turned people onto wrestling with a match featuring character work. (Steen vs Generico has been decent early.stuff in the past)

    ReplyDelete
  42. Speed dating is shit for getting you to like dating though. You do it because you already know you like dating and are pursuing it.

    Similarly, watching 30 people I've never heard of waddle in and get thrown out sounds torturous

    ReplyDelete
  43. 2010 was the tits.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Gets what? A telegraph? What'd it say?

    ReplyDelete
  45. You're right. I can imagine Cole underselling the whole feat and burying Flair.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I enjoyed it, Khali destroying everyone wasn't to my taste but those final 15 minutes were amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  47. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hg_0BWpPGrU

    Is this the Vic Grimes match you're talking about? Because that's no jobber, that's Crash Holly he's facing. The match did more for Holly than it did Grimes, but they both ended up getting jobs out of it.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Duggan was still doing his Mid South character here. In retrospect it's obvious that he was booked differently in his second run as punishment for getting caught with drugs with Shiek.

    ReplyDelete
  49. While there was no clear explanation, and I can understand why people hate the idea of a guy like Savage "forgetting the rules", I always thought the same thing - Savage was half-conscious and fighting on instinct, basically on auto-pilot, so he just instinctively hit the Elbow and (instinctively) tried to pin Yoko.


    Again though, since there was no context given, it's just as feasible that Savage's character forgot the rules of a match he had competed in several times.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Agreed, I really didn't like 2010. Other than Punk's bit (which only lasted a few minutes before being eliminated by... well, you know), something like HALF of the participants only lasted a minute or two, Kane and Trips kept saving each other from elimination, there were LONG stretches where nobody was eliminated, Shawn then eliminates several competitors with the ol' one-handed toss, R-Truth getting the big spot of eliminating Show and Henry SIMULTANEOUSLY (which went nowhere), the entire match just stops when Shawn is eliminated, and Edge absolutely did not have to win the "Rumble" such in a contrived way to set-up a title match with Jericho (with Jericho winning the title the following month in a contrived way to finish the set-up) when a simple "blood feud" would have sufficed.

    Didn't get it then, don't get it now. One of my least favorite Rumbles ever.

    ReplyDelete
  51. The Duke of Dorchester isn't even the most embarrassing Pete Doherty alive today

    ReplyDelete
  52. Yeah, that's the match. I realized after this posted that Crash is who he wrestled. Crash looked really small relative to Vic, but both of them really put on a crazy good match.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Been searching for your episode 11 recap but can't find it anywhere

    ReplyDelete
  54. Fun watch. Exactly why tryout matches are always exciting. That Grimes bump to the outside was sick

    ReplyDelete
  55. Shawn admitted, especially with the Hogan match , he can still be a prima-donna crybaby.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I'm more puzzled as to why Shawn started to take his pants off after he threw Diesel out.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Well he is Andre's son. Andre was a unbeatable monster.

    ReplyDelete
  58. If you all had listened to Hogan and jobbed that midget out - he might still be alive today.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Another funny moment I haven't heard mentioned in a while is the rocks interview prior to the 2000 rumble when cole asks him who is is most concerned with and he tells him crash holly and headbanger mosh.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I've said this before but total missed opportunity. I would've had Scotty II Hotty come out, scared shitless, but he brings out the glasses and puts them on Kane and Taker. They start to dance for a second and then Taker and Kane turn and look at each other and go: Wait...what the fuck and then beat the crap out of him

    ReplyDelete
  61. Right to Censor in 2001...ugh

    ReplyDelete
  62. It's gonna be awkward when he gets to the Mary Tyler Moore show and gets the bright idea to kill off Doink...

    ReplyDelete
  63. Barbarian doesn't like Flair.

    ReplyDelete
  64. The best Rumbles are the ones where people don't last a long time because then the ring gets too cluttered.

    ReplyDelete
  65. The 2012 Rumble just sucks. The roster was really thin and they didn't put Cena and Kane in to make it worse. It's just loser after loser coming out. Look at the entry list from 8 to 22

    ReplyDelete
  66. Perfection.


    I also like Ric Flair collapsing from exhaustion when he clears the ring, only for Roddy Piper of all people to come out.

    ReplyDelete
  67. 2009 is terrible. No one ever gets eliminated. Also, why didn't the Legacy just team up and kill everyone?

    ReplyDelete
  68. Though her looks had faded a bit from her WWF days, Sunny looked great in 1999 compared to a few years later.

    ReplyDelete
  69. God, took me way longer to get. But then, I couldn't remember what Taker's symbol looked like at first.

    ReplyDelete
  70. I'll always think that one of the big reasons Trish Stratus never got naked in Playboy or something is that her fake breasts were probably super-obvious and bad given her toned physique. Fitness models tend to look REALLY BAD naked for that reason (Stacey Lynn, a fitness model with a look so similar to Trish that they released a calendar as a duo, had 'em looking like weird perfect spheres when she showed them)- a curvier physique can hide how obvious it is.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Yeah, I remember that making waves on the internet all those years ago, with both guys being assumed to be big new hires. Grimes only showed up on a couple RAWs as the weird "Man In White", but Crash went on to be a lot more successful than a guy his size would normally have been.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I have one issue of WOW. It had a rare (at the time) photo of Steve Austin and Bill Goldberg talking to each other. SOLD!

  73. I remember him briefly being "Key" (or Kilo) as part of a faction with Droz and Albert, wherein it was kind of implied he was a drug dealer.

  75. Love reading these since wife and watch it for the how dumb is this laughs . But Matt, converting to Catholicism, from Christianity, is a huge process w classes and takes along time. Not very common, at least willingly. Otherway around not so much We though it was the craziest thing Eva said, which says a lot.

    And if I got this right, we are to believe Rosa got all these Twitter followers from a wardrobe mmalfunction that was edited off the network, so who saw it other than live crowd? Eva is just so ridiculous I'm starting to give up as her battle to avoid the truth at all costs continue. And what Catholic uses birth control? Can't believe Jonathan hasn't still seen the first season when she pretended he didn't exsist and kept wanting to jump fandango or any other superstar. Spoiler alert,

    Love reading these though. Keep them coming please. I know its tough to tolerate but reading these helps me watch it w her

  76. Totally agree. Need it to relate to what she just said to have the impact/humor IMO. Plus in often matches my thoughts at the ssame moments when I watch w my wife.

  77. Becoming Catholic is a huge process. You need tons classes and rituals, learn the chants, confessions, all kinds of Catholic only type beliefs to learn. Craziest thing eva ever asked for IMO. Gotta believe in the pope (think queen of England but tells you how to live, and believe). Of course a biggie is no birth control or abortion which many Christians believe too. But Eva wanted a Catholic wedding (which takes hours for the ceremony) and makes non Catholics very uncomfortable.
