It's PRO WRESTLING!

Hey Scott--

Have you seen this?

I share this for two reasons; first, this hack looks AWESOME, and any NES kid from the 80s would freak out over this.
But secondly, I was tearing my hair out at the end when Abobo is fighting Amazon in the ring from Pro Wrestling, and both Mike and James are stumbling around trying to identify the game.
"Is it WrestleMania?"
"Is it M.U.S.C.L.E.?"
"I think it's WrestleMania."
It's f*&%ing PRO WRESTLING. I'm not getting on them because they aren't wrestling fans; to each geek their own domain. But these knuckleheads are supposed to be game collecting Nintendo gods, and they can't identify a classic black box game that was the only one that (to quote our friend Joe Gagne) "wasn't awful?"
That's like you doing a gaming podcast, looking at a screen shot from Legend of Zelda, and saying, "Is that Kid Nikki?"

Improv

I'm not sure if you're aware of this up in Canada, but in the legitimate entertainment field, improv and improv actors are literally everywhere. From Amy Poehler to Tina Fey to Jason Mantzoukas to Matt Besser to Scott Aukerman to Paul Sheer and on and on and on, improv and UCB specifically have exploded in Hollywood circles. Do you think WWE is at all aware of this and should bring in people with improv experience to train talent to get away from word for word script reading? As an improv performer, I feel like this could help the product seem fresher and more spontaneous.

They already have lots of experience having to improvise a new script when Vince McMahon changes his mind 18 times in the hour before the show, so why not?
