The Rack 01-31-13
It’s time to celebrate on The Rack this week, not only because it is Award-Winning but because it is the One Year Rack-iversary! Join Hosts Lindsey Ward, her humble producer “Slappy” Sir Rockin and “the contributor” Mase as they lead you through the wild and crazy world of Professional Wrestling. After a fancy-dancy NEW intro, they discussed TNA’s big announcement about taking Impact live and out of the Impact Zone with their first stop in Chicago, RAW getting it’s best rating this past week that was the highest since RAW 1000, Vince McMahon’s hip surgery and the on-screen write off from RAW involving Brock Lesnar, El Generico is signed and on his way to NXT, WWE dropping the WWE “Main Event” Intercontinental Cup to continue the Barrett/Dallas feud and much more.
As with every week, The Rack is your weekly home for immediate Impact Wrestling recaps and commentary. They discussed this week’s Open Fight Night edition, including “International Incident” Bad Influence coming out in kilts and Braveheart make-up and making Lindsey swoon, the surprise reappearance of a certain British star and his open challenge to Aces & 8’s, Austin Aries beating Chavo and earning his dysfunctional tag team a Title shot next week in IMPACT, An intergender tag match with the New Power Couple versus Velvet Sky and our host’s favorite Beer Drinkin’ Cowboy, Bully Ray being reinstated, Joseph Park picking up the “W” as the boys say, the backstage attack on Samoa Joe, and the Steel Cage main event of Mr. Anderson and Kurt Angle that saw the reveal of two more members of Aces & 8’s, and you could say their “timing” was right, and so much more!
We also had a discussion about Taker’s WrestleMania future and the rumor breaking about his status for a certain Mega-event this year in New York, who should Punk’s opponent be for WrestleMania, what plans are ahead for Paul Heyman and a scenario involving John Cena that almost made Mase’s head explode, and a mini-retrospective and look at the phenomenon that has been and will be “The Rack, plus our Rack Staples: Tweet of the Week, Weekly Vent, and the question of the night: “What was your favorite Rack moment”.
