Sailor Mars - Let 'em Burn

I got TWO WORDS for ya!


I dunno, are any of the other pro rasslin' fans out there as disappointed as I was over the "triumphant" return of ECW? (http://www.ecw.com, I mean, http://www.wwe.com/shows/ecw/)

They only got one hour, as opposed to the standard two that the other WWE titles get. The matches rarely lasted longer than a minute. They gave huge pushes to Big Show and Kurt Angle, two wrestlers that not only aren't ECW in the slightest...but were pretty much washed up and unpopular in WWE. The main storyline still revolves primarily around Edge and John Cena...again, not really ECW. If they were gonna use WWE talent, then the least they could do would be to make it folks like the Crippler that we still strongly associate with their ECW days. Or bring back some talent like the Dudleys or Raven, other folks that just jump out and scream that brand name despite working for all the major feds.

And the biggest twist, the best storyline they could come up with was "let's go to RAW and fight the folks there". That, at least to me, says "we don't have enough talent to support our own show just yet" and/or "we need to leech off the popularity of the other Superstars for a while till we get up on our feet". Don't get me wrong...I love ECW. It's what wrestling should be, instead of what McMahon turned it into. And nothing will replace my memories of the good ol' days. But this just seemed like another WWE show with a different title.

Long story short, the best thing about watching that entire hour was the D-Generation X commercial for the next PPV. I have to admit that gave me the goosebumps watching it, and now I'm hoping that Vince doesn't ruin that gimmick like he did the nWo and is trying to do now with ECW. *sighs*
Cash - It ain't me babe...

I got tagged, by teh Deek.

7 songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they're not any good, but they must be songs you're really enjoying now. Post these instructions in your livejournal along with your seven songs. Then tag seven other people to see what they're listening to.

Aight then, lemme see what I can do. Should be easier than picking my seven favorites, as I kind of switch moods all the time when it comes to music.
  1. Motorhead - King of Kings
  2. Orgia - Inner Universe
  3. Kid Rock - You Ain't Never Met a Motherfucker Quite Like Me
  4. Seether - Remedy
  5. Nickleback - Animals
  6. Fall Out Boy - Sugar We're Going Down
  7. KISS - Psycho Circus
Again, totally random and in no particular order, and if you were to ask me in a day or two it'd prolly look entirely different. Just the seven songs that are currently runnin' though my head.

Okay now, who to tag? *spins the Wheel of Destiny* How about...
sage13, fetalstar, dusktodawn, vbabe83, lenihanfighter, nsight7, star_gazer_021, and by special request...senshicalico.

Y'all have fun.
