YES! is Jericho

If you’ll permit me to mark out for a second, it’s hard to see how any of these would not end as a masterpiece.

From Wrestling Inc.:

“As a heel Chris Jericho, I’d love to work with Daniel Bryan. We could tear the damn house. That could still happen. A lot of times I’ll hear I could never be a heel again because people like me too much, but put me in the ring with a babyface that is as over as Daniel Bryan and I’ll show you some heel stuff that nobody there is doing right now because no one knows to do it. I requested to work with Cesaro, and we had a 30-minute match in Tokyo last year and killed it. And last year I did one show with NXT and requested to work with Bray Wyatt, and we had a great match. So those are the three guys that I’d like to work with.”

Wrestling about what to give up for Lent?

When asked what he thought about Protestants observing Lent, Stone Cold had this to say:
The Miz had a question for the same Protestants:
When someone tried to tell The Rock what they’d be abstaining from, he just had one response:
Lastly, when Daniel Bryan was asked if he’d be giving anything up, only one word would suffice:
If you are not  giving anything up for Lent, there is not a single biblical command you’d be violating. Enjoy the beautiful liberty of Christ!
For those that are, don’t tell me. Really.
“And when you fast, do not look gloomy like the hypocrites, for they disfigure their faces that their fasting may be seen by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, that your fasting may not be seen by others but by your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you. (Matthew 6:16-18, ESV)

It’s not kayfabe, it’s the government

Earlier today I through out the following on Twitter:

A little more research was conducted, and according to Forbes and Reuters, Obamacare enrolled somewhere between 6 and 248 people on its first day, respectively. Not millions or even thousands, just between six and two hundred forty eight.

WWE Network’s first day, on the other hand, enrolled hundreds of thousands. And while there are still a few bugs to work out with everyone logging on to watch old pay-per-views, it looks likes the first day of WWE Network has been successful.

To be clear, a profession wrestling company dominated federal legislation.

Barack Obama just jobbed to Vince McMahon, and it was a squash.

Mean Gene on Richard Sherman

While WWE may not be hiring Richard Sherman, he can always try out for TNA if the Super Bowl doesn’t work out.

Read Mean Gene’s take here:

“He does not cut a promo like the Iron Sheik,” the man known as Mean Gene Okerlund was saying over the phone yesterday. “He cannot hold a candle to Nature Boy Ric Flair, either.
“I have heard so many rants and raves over the past 43 years, and quite honestly, Richard will have to do better than that.”
