That was really good, and a new Formerly Creative is up with the Glass Eye Guy! It's weird that I know the exact apartment complex he described being moved into when he got the job.

Do you guys legitimately believe that was Ric Flair?

What about that makes you believe it could not be Flair? He's got the voice and mannerisms.

I dunno from the beginning it just sounded like a guy doing an impression to me. Like Jason Sensation.

Also the fact he would stay on for 10 minutes and respond to such comments as YOU NEVER BEAT BRET!!!

Ric Flair has an ego where he doesn't leave a conversation feeling like he's lost.

The latest episode has Piper on with Bret, then they get Flair on, and eventually Bret asks what is was like to wrestle Jim Londos and Flair loses it again.

I'd argue that Benoit has that title sewn up. Anyway, I see your point, although Brody's is arguably more horrible than Rikidōzan, since (allegedly, anyway) thugs went into the OR and told everyone to stop operating on Brody or else there would be consequences.

My favorite part of the Rikidozan story is that he just tossed the guy and went right back to partying.

According to the latest Formerly Creative the segment where The Nexus threw Bret into the limo and then the driver drunkenly drove around the garage smashing into random cars was completely handled by Vince himself. That explains a lot.

Edit: They also said that CM Punk legit doesn't like anyone.

One of the running gags on the Art of Wrestling involves Colt trying to find people who didn't think CM Punk was a huge rear end in a top hat when they first met him.

Writers are seemingly only there to make the company seem more like a legit television operation and to take the heat for Vince's bad ideas so that he'll have a constantly refreshing group of people to yell at, break down and fire is what I got from it. Vince is a grumpy old manchild that enjoys the games that play out in his own mind while damaging his own company and putting on a lovely television product.

What's everybody's favorite Bryan and Vinny moments? Those shows are basically some of the funniest things I can remember in the wrestling business that doesn't involve PWG or CHIKARA.

My personal favorite is probably Bryan's rant about baseball or Bryan getting pissy cause someone called him out on his pronunciation of the word "roof".

Any time they make fun of stupid TNA stipulation matches. Every time Bryan rants about King of the Mountain is amazing.

Also whenever they review older shows from 24/7.

Basically most B&V shows actually. That show alone is worth the F4WOnline subscription.

Listening to Dave Lagana's latest podcast with Joe "Eye a Poppin'" Franciosi, he seemed to be suggesting that sometimes Undertaker sits at the Gorilla position backstage and helps expedite things. Kind of a cool visual.

Small moments tend to get me. Like one of the times they decided to play some of the games on the kids part of WWE.com instead of ranting at TNA and Bryan was reading the titles...

"JEFF HARDY IN SPACE?!" (Had me howling for a good 3 minutes)

And recently, during a Granny segment where someone asked about how Bryan met his wife, and they agreed it was private.

Vinny: "That's between Bryan, his bride and her mail-order service..."

That one's more because of how much Vinny cracks up at his own joke and how caught off-guard Bryan is, though.

Or Vinny giving his recaps.

But yeah, that Christmas/Scriptmpac episode where Bryan and Vinny were acting out scenes from the script was amazing.

There are collections of the top 50 moments on radio shows for 2009 and 2010. 2009's top moment was Dave completely no-selling someone asking, "In the 1990s, Bret Hart bought a house in the US from Montgomery Burns. Do you know if he still has this house or has he sold it?" Neither Bryan nor Dave caught on that it was a Simpsons joke, and Dave was trying to figure out when Bret bought this house.

Did it lead directly to a normal battle royal that lead into a tournament that lead into a triple threat? And did the final winner of all of that lose the very next week clean to a debuting star on free TV for no reason?

Fight for the Right was a reverse battle royal that led to a normal battle royal that ended in a singles match that set up the bracketing for a tournament in which the winner got a bye to the finals and the semi final was a three way.

Which is actually more complicated than what I remembered. No wonder I forgot all of the details. I just know that after Abyss won and was the new number one contender he lost clean before the PPV to Kurt Angle in Angle's debut which was stupid.
