Last night was a slow burn.  I get that they want to prepare matches for the Royal Rumble but whether Vince likes it or not, this will be a big ticket match.   


Are they waiting for Jeff?  I have heard he has made it back to live shows on one site and then he's still healing on another.

Well, strike 1 they moved it to Fridays. Strike 2 they are separated from a major team member for the 4th season in a row.   


This storyline is lame so far.  Disney crapped in them ensuring them of this being their last season.

5.  I went to YouTube to listen to the song and, yeah, the answer should be obvious.  Unfortunately the top comment right underneath the video also had the answer it, so I think I ended up disqualifying myself.


Hee hee.

Not that I would have gotten it but how does TLC's name relate to the song?


I meant the title of the song. They had a song called Baby, Baby, Baby.

I am concerned WWE will screw this up.  This has huge merch sales potential but they won't want Matt becoming that popular. I hope I am wrong.

Correct.  I am not sure how much he was considered but he was making a name for himself at this point in then right circles.

Yes, Tony Bennett.  It would have worked but something about Louis Armstrong made magic.


The still alive in hint #1 was meant for as of today.

3 and 6 are right. 


Can you imagine Walken saying those iconic lines?

I will say that if they ever have a women's tag division, Ruby Riot and Paige look like a match made in heaven.

Six is not the answer I was looking for.  Supposedly, Lucas really made an effort to get him. 


The others are right.

Alight, A1 trivia participants.  The obvious theme here will be people that originally offered to do something or were not chose instead of a something made famous by another person.  I hope that keeps simple.  I have tried my best to verify the sources.

Hint 1:  It was a group and the title would make sense for them.

Answer: Willam Defoe



4. Who was originally offered to sing "Telephone" by Lada Gaga?

Hint 2: Been around for at least 2 decades.


5. Who was originally offered to sign "Rock Your Body" by Justin Timberlake?


Hint:  Who else?
Hint: Don't try to date the song.
Hint: The 2nd singer is a big hint.
Hint: Seriously, I thought this song sounded like this singer.


6. To whom did George Lucas originally offer the role of Han Solo, played by Harrison Ford?


Answer: Christopher Walken


7. Billy Crystal was chosen to join the Saturday Night Live cast in 1985 over this actor mainly known for playing one character.  Who was he?

Raw: Ten minutes wasted on HHH and the gang.  Roman Reigns was getting cheered against The Miz.  Congrats to them on figuring this out.  I was kinda bored with the rest of the match.  Paige, Tuff Enuff and Cyborg wanna be show up and tear stuff up.


Smackdown.  One minute Sammie and K.O. are pre-show, the next, they are the M.E.  Go figure.  Ruby Riot shows up with another NXT long termer and Mae Young battler. They beat up stars and ruin matches.  I like it.  AJ is the man.




After thoughts:  There was a 4-way contender's match for the NXT Women's Title.  None of them came over.  This is stupid.  All four of them and the BFF that came out in the beginning are ready.  Vince is stupid! This is dumber than adding HHH to the SS match.
