It was great seeing Bobby Heenan get mentioned on last night's Letterman. Skip to 8:11.



Part 2. Skip to 0:45.

But now worries, I'm sure WWE will come up with something. Maybe the Raw GM actually is the computer and it will be revealed that Vince installed a form of AI based on himself into the WWE's network system to run the show in his place while he worked on his wife's campaign. However, the machine will revolt and we'll have all sorts of Raws full of black-outs and "unexpected accidents" as the program becomes a virus invading all of WWE's shows. This can lead to a whole Matrix style angle for WWE, complete with wrestlers who act as "programs."

I hope that doesn't happen, but would it surprise you?
It would shock me, because as stupid as it sounds, it still requires more out of the box thinking than Vince would ever allow to happen.

Letterman loves Heenan. He used him in on his 6th anniversary show from Radio City Music Hall in 1988. Jump to 1:10

That Foley/Flair segment was horrible.

Yep, made moreso by the fact that it was something wrestling fans have wanted to see for a while.

In terms of the Flair/Foley confrontation, I can't believe anyone thought this would air as a great segment. This promo truly highlighted the problem with TNA. Something that have should helped draw viewers next week had the adverse reaction. After this aired, I had no desire to see the match next week.

This is really sad, but other than the Guns/Gen Me feud, I think the thing most holding my interest in TNA is the Nash/Sting/DD angle. Probably cause it's so based on reality, it comes across as authentic. Although I think the only guys from that group that should still be in a ring is Jarrett, Joe, & Pope.

Really? I thought it was very good. Probably not as good as it should be, but I do want to see the match next week. It's weird how a great majority of whole wrestling thread is what's wrong with TNA, what's wrong with WWE and we hardly get anything positive. Why do you guys watch wrestling anyway? I admit I get frustrated with some segments, but some of this bitching just begs the question, why waste your time? Is there really jack else on television (probably a loaded question, but valid)?

Anywho, Flair/Foley wasn't bad. GenMe/Guns is still money and EV2.0 finally got a victory of some sort. However on the bad side, as pretty as Madison and Velvet are...good lord was that segment hard to listen to. But good show, Angle bleeding like a stuck pig was a little bothersome, but the match wasn't bad outside of the no finish (including the sensless Anderson Run-In).

I for one am really enjoying TNA lately. Even though I record Impact, I still end up watching 80% of it, compared to Raw, which I was just fast forwarding through in about 10 minutes, before completely giving up.

Pretty much the same here. Oddly enough, NXT has been my WWE highlight lately, mostly due to CM Punk's commentary.
