EXTREME SCI-FI!



Let's count the number of things wrong with this picture. Should I start with the concept of Vince McMahon trying to revive the 90s to boost pro wrestling's lagging sales and popularity? I can also point out the mind-jarring notion of choosing to place the hardcore wrestling promotion on Sci Fi Channel.

I think I'll focus instead on this latest ploy to revive the Monday Night Wars that caused the pro wrestling boom in the first place in the 90s, with the WWF and WCW. Since WCW and ECW went belly-up, the Whee's been trying to recapture the same lightning... by splitting their burgeoning roster into two different shows and pretending they're rival "brands", and now reviving Extreme Championship Wrestling.

You can't have an inter-company rivalry with *yourself*. It's be like ABC Family, Toon Disney and the Disney Channel having a heated rating duel. In the end, it just doesn't matter. :P

Well, obviously that's why he's bringing back the Diva Search Contest! Third time's the charm, eh Vinny? And this is shaping up to truly be the year of the big men, be it a resigned Mark Henry and Jamal or Giant Gonzales Mark Two.

Well, once Vince puts Chavo Guerrero in the Lazer-Tron suit, re-debuts Gregory Helms as Hurricane 2099 and debuts Scott Bakula as 'The Thing From Parts Unknown', it'll all make perfect sense. ;p

I'm surprised they haven't tried to steal more than Sabu from TNA frankly, though I guess that would mean Vince would be forced to admit that they had good ideas worth stealing and we can't have that, can we?

Vince needs to realize that nostalgia only goes so far and take some fucking creative risks that don't involve boobs or mass recycling that would breathe new life into the WWE. Putting Kurt Angle into ECW isn't going to work because Angle's on borrowed time at this point in his career and how long do you think he can be as intense as he is before he breaks down completely or worse becomes a shell of his former self?

I know Mick Foley and Paul Heyman are trying to sell the angle the best they can but it's just rings hollow and frankly there's no side to cheer or boo for in the long run. Plus if by some remote chance ECW is a success then you KNOW Vince will do whatever it takes to make sure everyone knows that WWE is still top dog, just like he did during the WCW/ECW alliance.

Much like the points on Whose Line. ;P Until TNA becomes enough of a threat to Vince to force him to acknowledge it, there're no competition and no reason for him to get fired up. Then I do get nostaligic for the old days of WWF, but I'd rather watch tapes of those days than see Vince try to recreate them now. And I suspect a lot of people feel the same way, those who haven't just given up entirely anyway. ;P
