I almost didn’t do a podcast this week, but Mike Adamle being the new General Manager of Monday Night RAW was just too much to resist talking about. It’s a short one, clocking in at just over 33 minutes, so enjoy!
P.S.: I wanted to point out that I’ve taken some measures to make the site easier to read, but didn’t think it was worthy of putting into it’s own post, so I’m adding it on here. The current changes were suggested by Chris Coyier at CSS-Tricks.com.
Sorry this post is extremely late today guys, I actually had most of it written last night and was expecting to have it up pretty early today, but then some douchebag didn’t show up for work, so I ended up stuck there for another two hours. In any event, last night’s show was pretty decent, compared to other post-draft episodes of ECW on Sci-Fi, but if you missed it, unless you’re really bored you can probably skip the X-stream on WWE.com.

We’re gonna kick off our ECW coverage early today. I said during last week’s podcast that I wanted to start doing more content here on BoredWrestlingFan than the show reviews and weekly podcasts, so I guess this is as good of a start as any. A post on the World Wrestling Insanity forums gave me the idea to create this. It seems I wasn’t alone in not liking the new ECW Championship (in all honesty, it’s grown on me in the past week), and at least one person pointed out that they think the belt would look better if the ECW on the main plate were in red. So, I photoshopped it in. Hope you like it, and click on the image for the full view.
Holy hell – I never expected the new RAW GM to be him! I’m not going to post it up here though, if you don’t know who it is already. I didn’t find out who the new RAW GM was until 7:30 this morning, and I’m going to make you wait just the same. Meanwhile, RAW was pretty… interesting last night. Michael Cole was in a match, was beaten up, replaced with Mike Adamle, and then later, JR joined Adamle and the King on commentary. Kane and JBL got into it a few times, Cena and Batista almost went at it, and CM Punk took on William Regal, among other things.

… but I’ve started putting ads up here on BWF. I promise you guys this though – BoredWrestlingFan will never turn into one of those sites with so many damned ads that you can’t read the site without hitting the stop button at just the right time – I hate those as much as you guys do!
Well, another not so bad edition of iMPACT, with lots of guys getting face time this week. Improving upon last week, the main focus of the show was actually Samoa Joe and Booker T instead of a mid-card tag team (no offense, Beer Money, you guys are my favorite team in TNA right now.) There was even time for some enhancement talent on this week’s show. Congratulations on your vast improvement over the last couple of weeks, TNA!
Well, I decided to do a podcast this week after all. I’ve also decided that I’m not going to the Vans’ Warped Tour either, mostly because I can’t afford to. So that means your iMPACT review will be up tomorrow. This week’s podcast clocks in at just over 40 minutes, it’s some quick thoughts on the past week worth of shows, and a long winded rant about why ECW now officially needs to change it’s name.
Now would be a good time, I suppose, to announce that I’m going to be doing more blog style posts in addition to the review posts – after the power comes back on at my place of employment. Yes folks, it’s been seven weeks as of today and my job is still to just sit in the dark and tell people to go away. Hopefully that will get fixed soon and I’ll be able to go back to a normal posting schedule around here.
I tuned in to ECW last night, and died a little inside. As a fan of the original ECW, to see a new belt – especially one so hideous – replace the original ECW Championship, it kills me. You might as well fire Tazz, Tommy Dreamer, and Little Guido while you’re at it, because the ECW I knew is one step closer to being 100% dead. The worst part about it was, last night’s show was in Philly. I miss Paul Heyman and Joey Styles. I miss the hardcore style, and I miss the old ECW Championship belt. As soon as the words “WORLD WRESTLING ENTERTAINMENT” became adorned on the ECW title, that was the absolute end of the ECW I knew and loved. Especially since the show I’ve been watching on Tuesday nights for the last four weeks has pretty much sucked.
Whatever, I’ve got a job to do – ECW results and my thoughts, after the jump. (more…)
Well, the end of the World Heavyweight Championship match at the Great American Bash left things a bit undecided between the World Champion CM Punk and his challenger, Batista. So they had a rematch last night on RAW, with Punk saying “we’re going to keep doing it until we get it right,” or something along those lines. Well, they still didn’t get it right, but I suppose I shouldn’t give away what happened just quite yet – after all, there was a whole show before that happened that I need to tell you about!
