Love the image, but Elmo / Big Bird / Cookie Monster are all Seasme Street characters, no The Muppets (Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzy Bear, Gonzo, Beaker)!

I'm hoping for Animal to take on Mark Henry! :lol:

I always liked the Jumping Bomb Angels :D There's a great quote about the Steiners from Jim Ross at a Beach Blast, or at least I think it was, he said every team they have met they have beat like a stepchild, that made me laugh! I always thought Williams & Gordy were a pretty good tag team, I think I've got some dvds somewhere with a load of there matches on.

I can't remember there name off them properly off the top of my head think it was something like the Acid brother (Trent Acid and someone else) in CZW in the early 2000's. Some of the stuff they did was simply awesome.

Also, The Gangsters, Dudleys, Eliminators in ECW

Based purely on wrestlng ability and not the people (well, person) outside of the ring, I thought Dean Malenko and Chris Benoit were great as part of the Four Horsemen in WCW. Actually, I liked any tag teams Benoit was in, like when he teamed with Eddie Guerrero as part of The Radicalz, or when he teamed with Chris Jericho for a while.

Finally watched Vengeance earlier...to be honest I thought it was a 'meh' PPV (outside of Kevin Nash attacking Triple H....I honestly didn't see that coming and Nash looked in better shape than he has done the last few times he's been on TV...but the Henry/Big Show match was a nice surprise mimicking what Brock Lesnar and Big Show did years before (Jerry Lawler did actually mention Brock Lesnar as well when it happened) and the Cena/Del Rio match was fun, it was nice to see a Last Man Standing match go all over the backstage area and then the Spanish announce table getting trashed...it felt like a kind of throwback to the good old days and felt like they were making an effort to be entertaining at least.

Following Raw wasn't bad either, Nash putting Triple H in hospital was good and the ending (complete with John Cena drooling on the mic) set the tone for Survivor Series nicely. I noticed that guy with the 'We hate Cena' T Shirt on again as well, obviously a plant to promote Cena's new 'Rise Above Hate' T-Shirt :lol: Can't complain though, it did entertain me.

Haven't watched this week's TNA yet, but last week's show....just good grief. :roll: I think James Storm is really great, I do, he's paid his dues 10 times over and is more than ready to be a main eventer but doing it that way? Really? It's like they just completely took a big dump on the whole build up of Robert Roode. The only real way I can see out of that mess is to have Roode turn heel out of jealousy, otherwise I'm just not seeing what direction TNA are heading in here.

Backseat Boyz with Johnny Kashmere?

Seen Trent Acid wrestle vs Johnny Storm at GWF in Preston in 2002(very bottom review), he was really good. It's shame his demons caught up with him and cost him his life. In an era when smaller guys are beginning to break out and become top stars ala Jeff Hardy etc, and being only 29, Acid could have gone places. shame. I was always impressed when I saw him wrestle.

Not seen a lot of their actual stuff. I have watched a Dragon Gate UK DVD though and enjoyed that.

Next weekend getting a moment of nostalgia from Brit-wres. Jonny Storm coming up to fight just down the road. He was in the first match British match I caught at Butlins what feels like many moons ago. Should be a good evening.
