Most Extreme Player for 9/21/06
This week's MEP will be short and sweet. ECW Original and former five-time ECW World Champion, Sandman finally gets the nod.
Following a cheap shot by the spineless former schoolteacher, Matt Striker, The Sandman was knocked cold and had to be helped to the locker room. The Sandman's partners and fellow ECW Originals, Tommy Dreamer and Sabu were left at a disadvantage against new Extremists, Striker, Test and Mike Knox.
As he has always done, The Extreme Icon fought his way back to the ring and planted his cane in the skulls of all of his opponents...well, almost of all them. Striker did what he does best and that's run from The Sandman. However, sooner rather than later, the three o' clock bell will sound and Striker will have to meet Sandman in an Extreme Rules schoolyard streetfight.
I think I just invented and booked a match!
Other Extreme Musings:
I really enjoyed John Cena and Edge's ECW match at Unforgiven. Yes, you read that correctly. If you are a new ECW fan, you may not know that it was ECW that introduced matches involving tables, ladders and chairs to the United States. WWE then "borrowed" the concept to combat Ted Turner's evil and now extinct empire.
I understand that our ratings on Sci Fi in the United States was affected somewhat by the family of Dog the Bounty Hunter discussing his arrest. I didn't realize that Dog had actually been incarcerated. Naturally, when I heard that Dog been arrested, I simply assumed that the fashion police had finally caught up with him.
Seriously, I am totally behind Dog. Dog and his bounty hunting team were taken into custody by U.S. Marshals early Thursday, Sept. 14 in connection with charges stemming from their 2003 arrest of convicted serial rapist, Andrew Luster.
Dog, Leland and Tim were all released on bail on Friday, Sept. 15, 2006, as the judge concluded they are not flight risks. While out on bail, they will be required to remain in the state and wear electronic monitoring devices until they return to court for extradition hearings to face trial in Mexico. No date has been set for those hearings.
Bounty hunting is illegal in Mexico? What a joke! Mexico encourages their citizens to infiltrate our country illegally just so they can send money back home because the Mexican economy sucks. Not to mention the fact that Mexico is a haven for drug lords and fugitives like Andrew Luster who can pay off Mexican police officers and politicians with pocket change.
Dog does the world a favor by tracking down the scum of the earth and making them face American justice rather than living like trust fund royalty in Mexico. Perhaps the United States is playing hardball with Dog because they are embarassed that they granted bail to Luster in the first place which is what allowed him to run off to Mexico.
Sorry about the tirade. I get passionate about politics.
