2243 - On A Somewhat Happier Note...

Montreal will only be getting 2 to 4 centimeters of snow, thus avoiding the brunt of Winter Storm Juno that will hit the American Northeast. It's a happier note to me because it means no need to pull out the shovel... and also a little snow might pad out the parking lot full of ice.

Folks, be mindful of your surroundings and watch your step. Drive carefully, avoid taking unnecessary risks, and just be careful. It's either to make light of Americans taking precautions of snow, but even us Northern folks have a tendency to act like crack addicts whenever a snowstorm hits.

Be good and be safe... the posting spam ends now.

2242 - WWE Raw Tapings Cancelled Due To Storm

Source: http://rajah.com/node/45458

Tonight's WWE RAW taping from the XL Center in Hartford, Connecticut has been cancelled due to Winter Storm Juno. Some folks noticed the WWE crew packing up the trucks and as such, no live show to take place. The Smackdown tapings for tomorrow might also be affected. One has to wonder what WWE will air in its place... maybe they can re-air the Royal Fumble on free TV, but edited so that fans react positively to their chosen champion... worth a shot, I guess.

Still, good move on WWE's part for their proactive thinking. Setting aside the recent controversy over their Royal Fumble showing, they avoided a potential disaster of a RAW taping going horribly wrong due to a possible power outage or other possible setback as a result of this storm. I suppose, if nothing else, it gives the hapless Twitterers something to add to their #CancelWWENetwork Twits that continues to be a major trend.

Remember the days when the most efficient means of display fan discontent was littering the ring with trash? Those were the days.

2241 - Royal Fumble Is So Bad I Bitch About It On Twitter... WTF Indeed.










And yes, that's my actual Twitter thing. Don't expect much out of it, though. I only use it for medicinal purposes... just like Romulan Ale.

2240 - Considering a Rumble Feature

If you go to the Documents page, you'll find that I've added a section for Royal Rumble posts, which includes the latest edition of the Royal Fumble. As a result of last night's mainstream-garnering debacle due to WWE's continued insistence in fighting its own fanbase, I've been giving serious thought to doing a series of rambling posts in regards to past editions of the Royal Rumble. Considering that I've got the Rumble anthology set from a few years ago as well as a couple events on VHS, it probably wouldn't be a bad idea and at least something of a regular feature. I wouldn't want to rehash the Ramblemania posts (again) because they're just fine now.

Just an idea.

2239 - The Backlash to #RoyalFumble Getting Mainstream Attention

Well, WWE got their mainstream attention... and it only took pissing off their paying customers to get it.

2237 - Royal Fumble 2015

I guess we might as well get it out of the way... the Royal Rumble event. Or, as I like to call it, the Royal Fumble... this was not a good show by any stretch of the imagination.

Anyway, let's get on with some thoughts.
