Collapsing Ring Spot

Scott,

What is your opinion of the obviously-staged ring-collapsing spot in wrestling? Is it ever effective in getting a wrestler over as being really powerful or is it always cartoony and over-the-top?
It was pretty effective in certain situations, like showing Brock Lesnar superplexing Big Show, but it has to be done in EXTREME moderation because otherwise it completely loses effectiveness.  And I think that's the case, as it hasn't been done since, what, 2004?

Whatever happened to WWE New York/The World Restaurant?

Basically the guy who was managing it embezzled hundreds of thousands of dollars from the restaurant, and WWE fired him and shut down the operation because it was such a money loser otherwise.  Running a restaurant is a pretty dicey proposition under the best of circumstances, and the place was in a terrible location and apparently was a ghost town unless it was a PPV night.
