Jesse from the 6

John & Wai, your initial review of this show released on the first day of 2014 is one of my all time favourites, so you’ve set the bar high for yourselves here. I wonder if, during this review, you hit the same talking points as last time.

Did you once again look up the work history of Thea Vidale (the actress who portrayed Shelton’s “Momma”)?
Did John like the Trips-Big Show match as much as last time? (I don’t think Wai ever really liked it.)
Did John criticize the inclusion of the Bra and Panties Gauntlet Match again? Did Wai defend it again?
Did you remark on Jerry Lawler ending the PPV by calling Lita “a slut”?

For me, I’ll always remember this show for Kurt Angle’s promo. It’s the perfect representation of Vince McMahon’s stupidity. Vince had a character the fans were cheering. Did he turn him face then? Of course not. He just made him say racist shit. What a stubborn asshole.
