Yep, probably my least favorite ever.

Decided to watch an old ppv and I settled on Armageddon 2000. Weird ass match and feud between Jericho and Kane that started when Y2J accidentally spilled coffee on Kane. God the Attitude Era was weird.

Momma Bella is engaged to Ace, Brie's with D-Bryan, and Nicki is with Cena. What an insane family that is.

Finally to the main event of Armageddon 2000, the 6 man Hell in a Cell, Kurt Angle (c) vs Triple H vs Rikishi vs The Rock vs Steve Austin vs The Undertaker.

Gotta say, in the build up to the match and the way the promos were going the entire night, it gave the Cell an added layer of mystique that it sorely misses today. It's one reason why I wish they'd just cut the Hell in a Cell ppv entire and build the match legacy back up. I dislike how feuds really aren't built up to lead to the Cell or how the Cells is used unnecessary for feuds that happen to occur this time of the year.

Ok, rant over. Time to enjoy this flustercuck!

Watching old episodes of Legends of Wrestling. Just like with Table for 3 and Legends with JBL, it's always fun and interesting to hear stories and thoughts from folks in the business.

Tried to watch a War Games match on the Network. About a minute into the rules I checked out, seems far too complicated and overbooked.

Another great edition of Legends with JBL. Bruno Sammartino's story and journey is incredible to hear.

AUTHENTIC UNTOLD STORY OF ECW

This was such a fun show. 50 minutes long and yet felt way too short. Lots of the usual stories, but also stuff I haven't heard before such as how Disney almost ended up partnering with ECW before it became Extreme.

As much as I'm tired of all things ECW (seriously let the thing go!), that does sound like it would be an interesting watch. I might check it out when I get home.

Disney taking over a wrestling company, man that would've been strange!

Speaking of Disney and Wrestling, Bischoff mentioned WCW's partnership with Disney in the new Eric Bischoff doc on the network. Like the ECW one, ther probably was not a lot of new stuff there. It did cover his time in AWA and pre-wrestling though.

Imagine what the world would look like with a Disney ran WCW or ECW, along with them owning Marvel, Star Wars, and Jim Henson's stuff.

Nah, if that were the case, TNA would not be going through any type of financial struggle.

The ECW special was a good watch. I had no idea how involved Bubba, Dreamer, Tazz, D-Von, and probably countless other guys were in the day to day grind of ECW. Gives me a little more respeck for those guys and how committed they were to the survival of the company.

WWE Story Time is a bunch of fun. The stories are a bit more concise than I would like, but the animations that go along with the stories are hilarious.
