    I thought the show was going to be bad. But it was so funny.

  • Tombstonepiledriver

    Come on—-grow some balls and just admit that you liked the Muppets!

  • Tombstonepiledriver

    I actually(even tho i hate to admit it) enjoyed the Muppets on raw. (suspect most of you did too but you will never admit it)

  • really

    @freakzilla – not to mention the most electrifying Gagne ever his son Greg

  • really

    @Joe where exactly have you been the last 20 years? The WWE is not about wrestling anymore, maybe never again. If you want wrestling go check out ROH or some of the international stuff

    Wrestling is down on the list of priorities, agree or not it’s the truth, people would rather watch wrestlers with limited wrestling skills like the Rock and John Cena then Bruno or Verne, it’s a different creature. Then = wrestler, Now = Entertainer

    With the exception or Steamboat the guys you mentioned and others like Backlaund would be jobbers in this day an age in the WWE, Just like Rock and Cena would not be main event back in the day, it’s sad and I don’t like it but it’s reality

    Joe Isch I’m with you…

    I must’ve missed the meeting where we’re no longer allowed to “respect the roots of the sport” while still being entertained.

  • Joe Isch

    I miss professional wrestling.

    Ask this question…what would Verne Gagne, Ricky Steamboat or Bruno Sammartino think? It doesn’t matter what they think. It only matters that those that ran that show in their days knew to give the fans a wrestling show….not this crack-induced bullshit.

    I’m sorry to rant but this is truly the bullshit-filled straw that breaks the camel’s back…..does anyone that TRULY appreciates the roots of this sport…yes, SPORT…credit this? I cannot shake my head enough.

    It was fun while it lasted….

    Breaking News: R Truth is teaming up with the muppets to form a new alliance. He was quoted as to saying……

    “I call us the NWP, Niggas wit Puppets” – R Truth.

    Looking forward to Staler and Waldorf, if they are being used tonight.

  • Zach D

    On tonight’s show, Kermit, Miss Piggy, and Fozzi Bear will reveal they are behind the conspiracy and are forming the New MWO….. Muppet World Order…..

  • Zach D

  • The mark

    They seriously need to do something with Miz and Kermit.

  • Buttercastle
