Matt's Mailbag for September 19, 2006
This Friday is the huge premiere of SmackDown on the CW network. From what I've heard, it's going to be a really big show and I hope you're on it. Do you guys get excited for a big show like this? Or is just another SmackDown?
-Louis from Fairfield, CT
I think all the Smackdown superstars are excited about our premier on the CW network, as it is a huge deal for the Smackdown brand. I am extremely excited for our debut Smackdown on CW and it definitely feels more important than a "regular" Smackdown. The first Smackdown on CW will always be remembered as the start of a new era for Smackdown. It's a great chance to add to your history and legacy. And between you and I, I am scheduled to be on the show. I hope my secret's safe with you...
I've been a huge fan of yours for quite a few years now and I was wondering what is your favorite match that you have ever been a part of. Mine is TLC 2 from Wrestlemania X-Seven.
-Jonny from Scunthorpe, UK
I don't really have one single favorite match Jonny. So, how about I name the first few matches that stnd out in my mind? The first time Jeff and I beat the Acolytes for the WWE World Tag Team titles in Fayetteville is definitely one of my favorites. Also the first ever tag team ladder match where Jeffrey and myself defeated Edge and Christian in the finals of the Terri Invitational Tournament. One thing we have in common Jonny is our love for the TLC2 match from Wrestlemania 17. That goes down as a high ranking favorite of mine. I also loved the match I had in 2003 in Anaheim against Rey Mysterio for the Cruiserweight Championship. And last but not least, the Unforgiven 2005 cage match when I pinned Edge after hitting him with a leg drop off the top of the cage.
I have to say, I'm not your biggest fan, but I do respect your work in the ring. I am, on the other hand a big fan of the humble and benevolent King Booker, and I am a loyal subject in his SmackDown Kingdom. I have to say, even though you are a peasant, you could probably play some role in the King's Court. Where do you see yourself in the World Heavyweight Champion's Kingdom?
- Steve from Manalapan, NJ
Considering my heart and fighting ability, I could see myself as a knight in King Booker's court. But instead of calling me Sir Matthew, it would be either Sir Brutus or Sir Judas. Because the first chance I had, I would betray the evil King Booker and take over his kingdom. King Matthew has a ring to it huh?
Who's you're favorite travel partner?
Don from Omaha, Nebraska
The "Reject" Shannon Moore. When Shannon was the MFer (seems like a lifetime ago), we had some of the best times I've ever had in my life. I would elaborate on some of our experiences together, but I still want to be allowed to do this column next week, HA!
I'm guessing you probably don't have too much free time, because you're on the road so much. But when you do get some time, do you ever watch any movies? And if so, what are some of your favorites?
Jennifer from Hunt, KS
My older favorites include Heathers, Powder, and The Crow. More recently, I'm a big fan of the Spider-Man movies. The last really hilarious movie I watched was Talledaga nights, The Ballad of Ricky Bobby--I loved it!
Seeing as you are a busy, constantly traveling WWE superstar, how do you keep in touch with your family? Are you able to see them as often as you'd like?
- Micupo from Salem, Oregon
Fortunately, I still live in the same town that I grew up in, which is Cameron, North Carolina. On my off days (which varies from one to two days a week usually), I always get to see my Dad. The only other family I have nearby is my brother Jeff, who is my next door neighbor. Jeff and I always hang out when we're at home at the same time, and stay in touch over the phone when we're both on the road. Performing in my hometown, hell, my home state, is a bonus that allows me to see my blood relatives just a little bit more.
You've been embroiled in a pretty serious rivalry with your "friend" Gregory Helms for the last couple months. Seeing as how you know him so well, why do you think he's so scared to put his Cruiserweight Championship on the line against you?
- Craig from Manhattan
I actually do think he's afraid to put the title up, but... As the rules currently state, I am too heavy presently to wrestle in the cruiserweight division. Alot of people have been confused why I haven't either challenged or won the cruiserweight title, so I thought I would set the record straight. Even though the crusierweight title isn't on the line, alot of pride certainly is. Whether there's a championship on the line or not, myself and Gregory Helms have a huge personal rivalry. And I'm gonna prove that Matt Hardy is better than Gregory Helms.
Thanks for checking out Matt's mailbag this week, I'll be back in seven days from now...
