Thanks to Elite 17 for the pic
Woooooo! Welcome to an all-new edition of Good Call/Bad Call, right here on hollywoodjimmy.com. Is that "The Nature Boy" or G.I. Joe? As much as I would like to say that's a photoshopped picture, I'm afraid it's not. That's right, Electronic Arts added Ric Flair to the cast for Red Alert 3's new PC-exclusive Uprising expansion pack. To me, it looks like Flair could very well be Bubba and Devon's daddy. Whassup?
WARNING: The following views expressed are in no way, shape or form, linked to the views expressed by Hollywood Jimmy, Joe Torre, Matt Hardy, Paul London, or anyone else that's associated with hollywoodjimmy.com or wrestlingnewscenter.com. Hollywood Jimmy already knows all, anyway. That's why he was the recipient of the 2008 Rasslin Riot Online's Award for Manager of the Year. I've been trying to reach Mike Knox to ask him some questions, but no luck, thus far. Apparently, Knox has been busy having some serious negotiations with GEICO, as of late. They are trying to reach an agreement so that he can be featured in some of their new cavemen commercials. D-Rock's views may be wrong, but he highly doubts that.
What in the hell is up with The Legacy? One night, Orton, Rhodes, and DiBiase are dominating the Royal Rumble and the next, all three are getting owned by Shane McMahon. That's mind-boggling! Why would creative choose to make their next big heel stable look so weak? I have no idea. Now, don't get me wrong, I thought Orton did a good job of explaining why they didn't do anything to Shane McMahon, but it's just not realistic. Did you see those phantom punches Shane was throwing? They looked really bad. I know it's entertainment, but at least try and make it halfway believable. Who is actually going to believe that Shane O-Mac can defeat The Legacy all by himself. That's like watching little Rey Mysterio win the Rumble, a few years back. The only difference is that the fantasy was going on, at that time, and I actually had Rey on my team, so I scored some major points. Now, the WWE chose to do away with the fantasy, so that crap just ain't gonna cut it.
How about Orton's newfound disorder, IED? That son of a gun has been kicking people in the head for two years and now you wanna claim he's got some sort of disorder. Don't feed me that. He's "The Legend Killer". The reason he kicks people in their head is because he can and he doesn't give a damn. If they don't watch out they will screw up Orton's character like they did Kane.
I'm excited about the Hardy Boys storyline. I thought they did a great job with that. I'm anxious to see Matt as a heel. They are going to put on one hell of a show at WrestleMania.
What a pleasant surprise it was to see Christian return to the WWE on ECW of all places. Who would have thunk it? He should get that ECW belt in no time and then he'll probley be like Miz & Morrison and start popping up on every show. I'm liking the new talent initiative on ECW because with the additions of Christian, Tyson Kidd, Jamie Noble, Paul Burchill, and DJ Gabriel they are presenting something fresh with some new faces and utilizing some of the talent that flies under the radar on the two major shows. Oh yeah, I can't forget about the lovely additions of a few Good Call Girls, Katie Lea Burchill, Natalya, and Alicia Fox. Ha-ha! Probley wanna refrain from calling a lady a Good Call Girl the next time you go to the store. You might get the Kizarny knocked out of you.
They really shook things up at No Way Out. That was a good thing. I'm so glad nobody took me up on my bet that Cena was going to walk out of there with the belt. As Edge would say, I was WRONG!..........WRONG! WRONG! WRONG!
I'm thinking this year's WrestleMania lineup is going to be really good. Looking forward to see how everything unfolds.
TNA! TNA! TNA!
TNA had one of the most entertaining shows that I've seen in quite some time, a few weeks ago. Their January 29th edition of iMPACT! was full of non-stop laughs, thanks to the commentary of Black Snow(Booker T) and the ring announcing of "Big Poppa Pump" Scott Steiner. These two have been on a roll, here lately, with some funny stuff.
Unfortunately, I was a little disappointed after I read the results of their recent Against All Odds pay-per-view. It just seemed like a regular iMPACT! that they decided to charge everyone for. Hopefully, Destination X will be a lot better with the return of the Ultimate X match.
The Main Event Mafia is beginning to crumble from within since the Frontline has yet to pose any kind of a threat, whatsoever. Whoa! Hold the phone! Samoa Joe just painted his face! It's on like Awesome Kong, now! I'm positive that has struck absolute fear into the hearts and minds of all mankind. Just look at what a little bit of face paint did for the career of Christopher Daniels.
I wished they would have waited a little while longer before they pulled the trigger on the Kurt Angle/Sting feud, but oh well. It's still like a dream match to me. The Empty Arena Showdown on iMPACT! between Kurt and Sting was alright. I wish they would have given it more time, since they hyped it up the entire show. You could really see the similarities that Kurt Angle had with one, Terry Funk, from his classic Empty Arena Match with Jerry "The King" Lawler. For your viewing pleasure, I posted the Lawler vs Funk: Empty Arena Battle. Funk is the man!

Trying to stop Chris Jericho from leaving the arena-Bad Call
Midnight Gold-Good Call
Plaxico Burress-Good Call-Wait a minute! Let me explain. I'm sure you're asking yourself, why in the hell would Plax get a Good Call after "accidently" shooting himself a few months ago. Well, that will definitely be one of the biggest Bad Calls and bonehead moments of all-time. With football season just wrapping up, I thought I would update you on Plaxico's recent progress off the field as he's been educating others on the importance of gun safety. Take a look:
TNA pursuing Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich-Bad Call-I think one Gov. is enough
Leg cramps while driving-Bad Call
Joaquin Phoenix's career move-Bad Call
Jack Swagger-Needs to duct tape that ECW belt so it will stop falling off him, but there's a logical explanation for all this: Mark Henry had the belt so it was either specially made for "The World's Strongest Man" or he stretched the hell out of it. My money is on the latter, but if you can't duct it-Funk is well on his way to the Hall of Fame
Edge calling the fans, "Big, fat failure turtles"-Hilarious!
TNA releasing Lance Rock and Jimmy Rave-I guess everyone got infected

Be careful when shopping.........
Over the last month I became a victim of a clever scam while out shopping. Simply going out to get supplies has turned out to be quite traumatic. Don't be naïve enough to think it couldn't happen to you or your friends.
Here's how the scam works:
Two very hot 20-21 year-old girls come over to your car as you are packing your stuff into the trunk. They both start wiping your windshield with a rag and Windex, with their breasts almost falling out of their skimpy T-shirts. It is impossible not to look.
When you thank them and offer them a tip, they say 'No' and instead they ask you for a ride to Lowes.
You agree and they get in the backseat. On the way, they start undressing. Then one of them climbs over into the front seat and starts crawling all over you, while the other one steals your wallet.
I had my wallet stolen January 1st, 4th, 9th, 10th, twice on the 15th, 17th, 20th, 24th & 29th. As well as, February the 8th, 12th, 14th, and today.
So tell your friends to be careful.
P.S. Wal-Mart has wallets on sale for 2.99 each-GOOD CALL!!!
Thanks for reading and Good Calls to All!!!
