Only satisfying Miz option

I just found out Miz is champ.  I didn't even know he was MITB owner.  Hell I don't remember much of the past 10 years of the main prgrams.  But it sounds to me that the MITB and championship is so devalued, that it really doesn't matter what happens next, it's not going to help in ...

Best Comic Over-Sell

Hey Scott– The 1992 Royal Rumble is the gift that keeps on giving; No matter how many times I've seen it, I notice new things. For example, early in the match, Shawn Michaels and Ric Flair seem to be in a competition to see who can comically bump better off Kerry Von Erich's discus punch. ...

Outside the norm Dream Matches

Hi Scott! Long time reader etc etc. Thought this may be a good topic of conversation for the ever entertaining board.
