Fritz Stephey Mourns The Death of WWE Heat

Well, the show that got me started working on World Wrestling Insanity is officially dead. HEAT, my friends, is done. Let us take a moment of don't have to stand, or turn off your music, or even think about the subject matter...just shut up for a second.

Now, I know what you're thinking..." Jeeze Fritz, you haven't written a report/review for Heat since like...Early May ", and you know what, you're right. I could go on and on about how WWE <dot> com sucks ass, and how every other episode the stream didn't work,, that was the show that got me started. I have nothing but respect for long was the show? 20 mins?

So, you're getting less of the Fritz ( which, I know, must be hard for you to take in. Though, like I'm proving right now...I may just pop out of nowhere with an article ).
But, it's not all tears, right? I mean, now if you go to see RAW Live, you'll get to be apart of the ECW crowd. And I mean, I guess since ECW has TV time, it must be better ( How though, I dunno. I mean, does ECW regularly feature great talent like Snitsky vs. a Jobber? What's gonna happen to classic matches like this? ).

Honestly, though, I don't see how you can't give the show at least some props. For a show that started in '98, on USA and then jumped from there to MTV, TNN/Spike, and then even managed to stay alive as a Webcast for the US viewers (T hem international folk still had in Televised ), produced 513 episodes ( according to WWE's HEAT page ). Which, by the way, pending the stream works, I will get the final episode review up.

There is one serious question that I have regarding the hottest talent Heat had. What's to become of Val Venis?
