Crocker! Return of Jer Jer, Funkin' Buffets, Flair on TNA's 2011 Problems, and "Yeah, You! Talkin' About Barry Windham!"

By Dan Crocker Jan 12, 2012 - 4:18 PM print


It's a tough time of the year for the wrestling industry. Football is everywhere. The BCS title game, NFL playoffs--it's hard for wrestling to compete.   This weeks RAW took a pretty good hit in the ratings, even though they've been doing some things to compensate. I mean, nothing says football like an ex-Dancing With the Stars contender (sadly, this is rather true).

 

 

We are in week two of Jericho's (or as I call him Jer Jer) return and while some folks have been dissing on it, I think it's been pretty brilliant. Of course, I'm a mark. This whole fake 80s baby face persona cracks me up though. He draws his routine out just long enough to make it absurd. That some people don't get it makes it even funnier. It's like Jer Jer has decided that at this point of his career, he can just turn wrestling into dadaism (not that it often isn't already).

 

If Jericho crying wasn't enough to let you know that WWE is taking a postmodern turn, then the debut of Brodus Clay should convince you. Somebody better call his Momma, or at least KFC, Brodus Hungry.   Me and Brodus gonna funk it up at a Chinese Buffet later. On a side note, how cool of a freakin' name is Brodus. Someone out there vow right now to name their firstborn (son or daughter) Brodus.

 

In other news, it looks like "The Four Horseman" are going to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame and word is that Flair will be there. This might cause you to wonder what TNA is going to do about all of this. Are they going to charge WWE to use Flair?   Are they going to just ignore it? Only one thing is for certain at this point, Flair is going to cry during the ceremony.   The problem is, much to Tully's dismay, Flair is actually going to bring these guys:

 

 

My favorite line: "Yeah, you! Talking about Barry Windham!"   I'm just going to start saying that in random conversations.   Either that or, "You're the Lex Luger of the Four Horsemen."   This promo still cracks me up though. What the hell is that he's trying to say it's the same fingers (while holding up the Four Horsemen sign) but it's different. See . . . it's Fortune. For those of you who don't watch TNA, none of this ended up well. Except Jay Lethal.

 

It also looks like WWE is taking the four in Four Horsemen pretty damn seriously. They are only inducting four folks--Flair, Arn Anderson, Tully Blanchard and Barry Windham. No Lex (which I get). No Ole (which I don't get). No Benoit.

 

Finally, in a recent interview Kurt Angle said that 2011 was a sub par year for TNA and that there were some problems with writing and creative being on the same page. I wonder what his first clue was. He made some pretty good points though. The best one being that you should write it earlier so that it can all be worked out and meshed together before the show. Sounds like writing 101 to me. Oh, then he cried. He cried and cried and cried.

 

All right. Someone better call my mama. I got to get to the buffet and funk up some kung pao chicken.
