Celebrity Rasslin And Random WWE Bits

So according to TMZ.com, WWE has sent a cease-and-desist letter to Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake, telling him to stop using the name they own. Beefcake is currently featured on Hulk Hogan's Celebrity Championship Wrestling show, where a bunch of celebrities learn to wrestle and subsequently forget to do so when their time on the show is done... at least that's my thought.

Anyway, the golden middle-aged guy who saved wrestling Eric Bischoff posted a comment on his blog, which reveals more about this situation than the TMZ story says. I don't want to say what he says because I actually want you to read the post... so here it is. Read it and come back.

Now I can't agree with Uncle Eric about the quality of the show... mostly because I haven't seen it and most probably won't unless I move to the states... which isn't fucking happening, but I will agree on the notion that Vince hates to do new things. That must be why I haven't seen him do anything new.

While I'm not the biggest fan of past-their-time celebrities wrestling each other in fake matches, it's at least a different concept and I'm sure the show has its audience. Hopefully it does well and it sticks around for a while.

(2019 Update: What the fuck are you drinking, 2008 Dave? By the way, the winner of the competition was Dennis Rodman, because of course it was.)

So apparently Cena has yet to swap the Big Gold Belt for his usual spinner garbage. I give it about a couple weeks before that happens.

Regarding the tournament... why call it an Intercontinental Championship tournament when the top prize is a shot at the champion himself rather than the title? Who names these things and why are they allowed to live?

So they're bringing back the Slammy awards... wow, that's so random.

The McMahon kids... ugh. Please go away... PLEASE GO AWAY! BRING BACK MIKE ADAMLE! At least he was inoffensive... for a time... but definitely more tolerable than the kids...

That's it for now.
