Report for 411 by Sean “Beantown” McCluskey
Woooo HHH is on Smackdown tonight too!
Yeah… so last week I this I recorded the most flame mails ever. Don’t worry by loyal readers… that was just a one time deal with the T-Shirts… Don’t know if it’s to late to vote… but if not… VOTE MCCLUSKEY FOR TV RECAPPER OF THE YEAR! You knowwwww you want to!
Danny (DJPuff44) that sent in the off camera notes for 411 for RAW this week is an online buddy of mine. We discussed that deal with the fans “WHAT?”-ing the National Anthem. Makes me feel pretty shitty to be a wrestling fan to hear that. Especially in New York… Way to embarrass your Country, chodes.
We start off with Debra and Steph sayin that their respective husbands are gonna whip some ass at the Rumble.
Now Steph, led by a couple zeppelins head to the ring. Ahhh… boy did I miss the shrilling voice of Steph. Steph’s telling everyone the dilly. Now she talks about Flair. Our buff, friendly security guards are here to clean up the garbage. Steph says she’s back… dammit.
We catch Storm and Christian cutting a sharp corner. They have a Tag Title match tonight. Christian says that Spike and Tazz should be easier to beat at MSG than the Knicks. Good raughs!
Commercials… Sportscenter commercials rule!
Can’t believe Tazz and Spike won Monday… pretty cool if you ask me.
Spike needs to wipe that goofy ass smile off his face though…
