Them’s Fightin’ Words… (Page 3)
Michael Troll desperately needs some Tough Actin’ Tinactin; Nexus piles up on Big Show, Kane
Haha, Troll apparently doesn’t know his own troll strength. Jerry the King Lawler and Cole the Troll meet in the center of the ring to sign off on their match at Over the Limit. After signing the contract Troll takes the opportunity to inform Lawler he has in effect just signed up for a ‘Kiss my foot’ match. Cole the Troll then proceeds to expose his gangrenous feet, which Lawler will be forced to kiss should he lose the match. (I mean seriously, is that real? Do his feet really look like that? Because if so, Troll should probably see a doctor or something. Yuck. Oh wait, I guess in Troll’s it’d probably be the village witch doctor or something. Either way, ughh! No, seriously, check the slideshow if you don’t believe me. Those things were ratchet.)
After King makes the poignant observation that Troll has reduced former champion Jack Swagger to nothing more than a sidekick Troll casually remarks, “Nobody even remembers him being a world champion.” He goes on to say that joining up with him is probably the best thing to happen to Jack. Resulting in Swagger’s angrily getting up in his face then storming out of the ring. Realizing he’s probably just lost his backup at Over the Limit Troll attempts to apologize to King. Jerry’s not having any of it. He slams Cole the Troll down on the table by pulling on his tie (you’d think after last week’s debacle he would’ve learned by now ties are probably not a smart fashion accessory) and then flips the whole thing.
Back from commercial King finds himself in the rare position of being able to troll the Troll. “You ok, Cole?” he asks. “I’m not… it’s not funny. I’m not an athlete.” Troll says, realizing how badly he’s put his foot in his mouth. “Well, your feet are certainly athletic.” King returns. Zing!
Tag match now, between Kane Show (or Big Red, or whatever the hell these two are calling themselves) versus Michael McGillicutty and David Otunga of Nexus. I’m just curious as to when Big Show and Kane became the steps by which all up-and-comers would be used to gain a name for themselves. Punk catches Kane off guard with a blow to the head before McGillicutty could take the W. And what is this business about Mason Ryan going from a vicious new threat daring to go toe-to-toe with both Kane and Big Show two weeks back and now this week he’s seen cowering before Kane and slithering out of the ring instead of facing him. Why build up a wrestler to be a real threat then have him chicken out in epic fashion a couple weeks later? Ah well, guess there’s some give and some take to this whole putting wrestlers over thing. Maybe next week. Ok wait, re-watching it, maybe he didn’t want to interfere because the ref was on him. Either way, maybe next week.
