Thanks for stopping by ... hope everyone is well. This week's blog is a collection of random thoughts from under the black hat ... while sitting in J.R.'s Family BBQ in Norman, Oklahoma.
Friday Night SmackDown this week emanates from Miami, Florida, which is always a super place to visit. Although I will have to admit that I had a better time this week while in South Florida than I did back in January when the University of Florida defeated my Oklahoma Sooners for the National Title of College Football. But, as the King would say, one can't grieve forever.
SD is an entertaining broadcast this week with a chaotic ending to the show. I mean a really chaotic conclusion that gives the viewer plenty to think about.
Jeff Hardy and Rey Mysterio vs. Chris Jericho and Dolph Ziggler comprise the main event on a show that also prominently features World's Champ CM Punk who faces John Morrison and Kane vs. R-Truth.
I wonder if Jericho will ever refer to the equally egocentric Ziggler as "Grasshopper" during the evening?
We also have an exclusive interview with Edge regarding his surgery to repair a torn Achilles tendon that has threatened Edge's career. Thank goodness for Dr. Jim Andrews who did the surgery just as the good Doctor repaired NFL quarterback Brett Favre's biceps several weeks ago not to mention Batista's large guns.
Don't miss Friday Night Smackdown on MyNetworkTV starring Todd Grisham as Todd Grisham....and Jerry Mathers as "The Beaver."
Actor, comedian, director, producer, rich guy, creative guru, and all around good dude Seth Green, if that is his real name, seemed like he had a great time on Raw Monday night from Orlando. Seth may have been the most unique "guest host" yet on Raw even though I am still partial to the Million Dollar Man because I am, gasp, old school.
To those Internet geeks who think that going from young and hip Seth Green to Rock 'n Roll Hall of Famers ZZ Top as this week's Raw guest hosts is too much of a stretch, please allow me to say this.....bovine manure.
ZZ Top is one of the classic rock 'n roll bands of all time and it makes no difference when they debuted as they still do great touring business and their music is played in every city in America every day. Plus, I know for a fact that Billy Gibbons and Dusty Hill are legitimately, huge fans of WWE and have been following the genre of wrestling for years and years. That should count for something. ZZ Top has enjoyed J.R.'s Family BBQ in Norman on more than one occasion and we have a signed ZZ Top guitar in our store in Norman just as you enter the front door.
