    Why waste time on having Lawler and Cole in a street fight. You got Arn Anderson saying the young guys need to have more matches and then they book stuff like that? I know it’s a house show and it’d be entertaining for the kids to watch but common. Cole and Lawler should be using that time to get their announcing skills up to par for Mania.
