MICHAEL JACKSON WAS FOUND NOT GUILTY ON ALL TEN COUNTS! I freakin' KNEW it! There was no sort of case against him and the jury agreed. After that long trial it took them like a week to get the verdict. That says a lot... lol. That doesn't mean he is INNOCENT... Just that the state did not put forth enough evidence to convict, but as most of you know, I still think him innocent.
So... Tom Snedden... FUCK OFF. You're decade long crusade to crucify Michael Jackson took yet another horrible blow to the chin... Snedden, the public, and everyone else needs to leave him alone. He's weird as hell but that's about all he's guilty of. I'm not saying I'd let my son stay at his house without me by his side the entire time because that's just not a chance I'd be willing to take and I think the child's mother is to blame almost wholey if he did, infact, do what he was found not guilty of. Though there is no evidence he's ever done anything sexual to a child, you've got to be insane to even take that 1% chance that he would do something like that.
But I'm hoping to see him back doing what he does best-- entertaining.
I really think Natalee Holloway is dead. I thought it long before they even arrested those dudes. Its just a feeling much like I had intially about the Mark Hacking case. I knew he killed his wife right when I first saw him on CNN the day after she went missing.
But now, one of the guys they arrested has admitted to killing her and they were searching in some mangroves near the hotel she was staying at and all for her.
Its a sad state of affairs in the whole deal. I really hate when things like this happen. Though I'm in no way personally connected to her (or even anyone in Alabama or Aruba), it does sort of pain me.
Man... It's been miserable here in SC the past few days. For those who don't know, it gets hot here. Really hot. But the heat is only a small part of it all. I can take some high heat but the humidity... UGH. It feels so horrible outside. And it's not even summer yet! I think that's why I love tropical storms and hurricanes. The wind and rain kind of cools things a little.
But you people in other places where it gets to the 90's and above still don't freakin' know 'cause a lot of you don't get the humidity. Imagine if going outside was like stepping into a big ol' saunna. You get sticky and sweaty no matter where you're going. Miserable...
They found a 'distant cousin' of Earth about 15 light years away with a 10-meter diameter telescope in Hawaii. But you can read about that here: http://www.indianexpress.com/full_story.php?content_id=72656
Lance Storm w/ Dawn Marie vs. Lionheart Jericho - Winner was Lance Storm. Dawn Marie was clearly pregnate... Well... My mom had to point it out to me but... still. lol. Justin Credible gave Storm the win by nailing Jericho with a chair shot. Decent match... A little short...
Tajiri vs. Little Guido vs. Super Crazy - Winner was Super Crazy who showed off a killer moonsault from a balcony about 12 feet up and flew about 12 feet out to take out FBI and all. FBI and Mikey Whipwreck were at ringside for their own people. Whipwreck hit Guido with a Whippersnapper and he is soon eliminated. Super Crazy went on to win and it was a GREAT match.
Psicosis vs. Rey Mysterio Jr. - Rey wins this fantastic match against Psicosis who sheds his mask before even entering the ring. As a side note, why did Rey take up to wearing his mask again? But it was a really good match. Psicosis was in great form as was Rey. I've heard they weren't too happy with their match but that's crazy. It was top notch lucha libre style wrestling just like it was when ECW introduced it to the US.
RVD did a shoot interview and tore some new assholes for the WWE members in the crowd and truly shooting from the hip. He's gonna get himself fired from WWE someday. lol. But Rhyno, the 'Man-Beast', hits the ring and takes out RVD. But then the lights die... Some people get what's about to happen... SABU appears in the ring! Then we see a referee in the ring with them...
Rhyno vs. Sabu - Sabu Wins. Now this match was great. RVD ended up helping Sabu out to give Rhyno an Arabian Skull Crusher and it was then an easy win for Sabu. RVD did a lot in this match he shouldn't have done as to protect that knee of his.
After the match, RVD and Sabu point to the sky in honor of the original Shiek, Sabu's uncle (or great uncle... not sure which it is.)
Chris Benoit vs. Eddie Guerrero - Benoit wins. Gotta say, this match was better than I thought it would be after being so used to seeing the two in WWE for so long. Eddie tapped to the crossface and it looked like he had a broken nose but I haven't heard anything of it so maybe he didn't.
Mike Awesome vs. Tanaka - Awesome wins. The best match of the night in my book. Styles was downing Awesome heavily in the beginning but kind of started to see why he was ECW champion when he screwed over ECW and their fans. He was really hard on Awesome then after a while it hit him-- Awesome's hardcore! Many tables, chairs, and other weapons were used in the match. MANY big moves were hit, too. Too many highlights here so I'll just highlight the ending. Awesome powerbombs Tanaka through a table on the outside of the ring from the inside and over the top ropes. Awesome then dives over the top and CRUSHES Tanaka... I can't describe it with words... You'd just have to see it. He then pins Tanaka and the match is over. WHAT A MATCH, too!
Heyman then does his amazing shoot interview. I'll post the transcript at the end of this post.
The Dudley Boys vs. The Sandman & Tommy Dreamer - Dudley's win. This match was long and pretty good. Everyone bled. Everyone used and was hit by weapons. Beullah makes a long-awaited return to ECW after having her neck broken by the Dudley's and gets into it with Francine who ran in moment earlier. Lil's Spike came back seein' the colors... lol. It all ended with a 3-D through a table with an ENTIRE BOTTLE of lighter fluid burning on top of it.
Sandman wanted a beer after clearing out the whole ring with his cane.
Steve Austin comes out and Sandman begs him for beer. He says he'll give the entire lockerroom one and they all come out. Austin threatens WWE into the ring and a big ol' fight breaks out. Then old school Tazz comes out and chokes out Angle. Bischoff goes to the commentary table with Styles and Foley and talks shit. Sometime in all of that, Austin tells Sandman he's seen how he drinks beer and just one wouldn't do Sandman any damn good.
But Austin tells Foley to bring Eric to the ring and he does. He gets a 3-D, Flying Headbutt, and a 619. Some of the ECW guys then carry him out and toss him on the back of a truck outside.
Then all ECW guys are drinking beer and the night is over. What a night, though!
I later found out that JBL intentionally busted open Blue Meanie for calling him a bully online which was proven that night. JBL was even screaming things about it to him afterwards. From what I hear, Al Snow was REALLY upset with JBL. Meanie had many staples in his head before that night and JBL hit him full fisted and busted him open and I bet anything he won't be punished. Pisses me off...
Great matches, though. There weren't many but ECW matches tend to be long and exciting throughout and though the wrestlers wanted more time for their matches, it was still great.
Anywho, the DVD is slated to be out later this month or next (kinda soon, isn't it?) so FUCKING RENT OR BUY IT! If you were an old school ECW fan you'll love it. Or if you like violent, bloody matches or matches that the wrestlers don't move around like they're catching their breath the whole time, you'll love it. Blood was shed in less than half of the matches so it goes to show that ECW wasn't all about self-mutilation.
That's all for now, though. I've got someone bitching at me to hurry up and it was their fault it took so long. But anywho, stay tuned!
