Sometimes when Brandon laughs it sounds like someone is very slowly deflating a balloon.

These Rewind-A-Wai’s are always so funny though I can’t really blame him.


Believe it or not, Courteney Cox did make an appearance on Nitro right after David won the belt. I totally did not know of this until now.

Other than the original run through the Hulkamania era, the Arquette trilogy is my favorite OSW arc.
