  1. I am in complete agreement about signs at wrestling shows. I used to bring 3 or 4 to the small handful of shows I attended back in the late 90’s but between having to carry them, them slipping through the space down under the chair in front of me, fans behind me asking me to put my signs down even in between matches, and security coming around to check the signs and taking away ones they didn’t like, I decided it just wasn’t worth it and haven’t brought one since. On top of that, I never saw my signs on TV anyway.

    “Steve Austin” is sounding more and more like the “Ultimate Warrior.”

    I enjoyed the hell out of “The Frankie and Koko Show,” from the opening theme, to the voice work, to the use of a studio audience, to the 80’s sitcom trope. Just phenominal! I “Miss”ed who played the part the Sheila.

    Hey guys,

    The Beautiful People was actually the opening Track for SmackDown!. It was short uses for RAW in 1997, as you mentioned, and then used between 2001 and 2003 for the blue brand.

    The cap Perry Saturn used to wear was a leater dockercap. Looks stupid, but I think that he culd wear it. I was always wondering about what those guys were thinking about coming from the WCW to the WWF – all the differences.

    That’s it for me, nice audio drama. Poor Coco. 😉
