Things are about to get extreme, I hope youre ready! Its that special time of year. You can smell the barbed wire, hear the piles of thumbtacks dropping and taste the blood that's about to flow. It's time for Extreme Rules! Okay, so well have none of that. No Sandman, no Sabu, no nothing! Well I guess a rapidly balding Rob Van Dam will be appearing on the former ECW pay-per-view which now features Hornswoggle vs. El Torito. Thats extremely horrifying on multiple levels. But hey, its on the WWE Network so its a fraction of the cost that it used to be. Might as well watch, unless youre into television that doesnt insult your intelligence like Game of Thrones or Mad Men. But whats the fun in that? This week we said goodbye to our old friend Mason Ryan, prepared for Adam Rose to join the main roster, and wondered what the purpose of having Ric Flair on Raw was. With everything going down, quite a few awful things may have got lost in the mix. Dont worry, were here to bring it all back up, relive the stink, and proudly celebrate professional wrestlings worst of the week!
As Rust Cohle from True Detective said "Life's barely long enough to get good at one thing. So be careful what you're good at."
Sadly, I can't solve a murder like Rust...or change a tire, or even tie a tie. But I do know all the lyrics to Hulk Hogan's "Real American" theme song and can easily name every Natural Born Thriller from the dying days of WCW. I was once ranked 21st in the United States in Tetris...on the Playstation 3 version...for about a week.
