    Every single time Jim Ross brings up *that* OVW class that had Cena, Orton, Lesnar, Angle, and Benjamin, he calls Benjamin "the best athlete" of the bunch, but he never explains what he really means by that and it baffles me. Like sure he's okay but if you're going to call that guy the best athlete of a group that featured a guy that nearly made the NFL after not playing football on, for all intents and purposes, a personal dare, and another guy that won an olypmic medal on a fucked neck then as a pro was doing moonsaults for laughs, I really need more explanation.

    I don't recall Angle being mentioned as a part of that class.

    Wasn't Ron Waterman the other guy of that OVW class?  At least he was doing dark matches with the other three before they got called up and he got dropped.

    Waterman was there, but the other guy that gets brought up is Big Dave. Batista, Orton, Cena, Lesnar, and Benjamin.

    Which is a hell of a class, regardless of the the best athlete is.

    Is he wrong though?

    Pre-bubble, clearly not.

    Based on the bubble? Dead wrong.

    More seriously, I think Phoenix is looking like they have a real bright future right now, with Booker being a top player, Ayton really starting to come around on both ends, and a decent core around them. Of course, they're stuck playing in the brutal west, which might make it hard to ever take that next step.

  3. I think Billy Gunn was a pretty decent tag guy. They tried a couple times to run with him in singles, but he wound up back in tags for good reason. Road Dogg was the better wrestler and the better talker and had more charisma though, but Billy had the look.... But they were definitely a case of "the whole is greater than the sum of the parts"

    (I also think Christian was better than Edge at damn near everything, but Edge was the anointed star from the word "go")

  4. It's hard to tell right now how much the Bucks and Lakers should be concerned, verses how much of it is "we've clinched the first seed and it's hard to get up for games that don't matter now"

    TJ Warren continuing to be unstoppable. The Pacers are going to keep him in a bubble the rest of his career at this rate.

    The tag title scene in the 80's was so great...   I'm not sure what happened to Vince.   Hart Foundation,  Rockers,  Powers of Pain, Brain Busters,  British Bulldogs, Killer Bees, Twin Towers, Strike Force,  Demolition,  on and on and on....    so many great teams.  

    Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels happened, proving to Vince the only purpose of a tag team is to find a main event star.

    Didn't say THEY would but would.  Of course, I wouldn't have ever signed Gruden in the first place.

    I get what you are saying. My point is, I don't know if it's feasible for them to do so, even if they do want to. Unless they were real confident they could win a "for cause" case.

  7. By the way, when did TJ Warren turn into the best player in basketball?

    Seriously, dude is putting up absolutely absurd numbers. I know it's only three games, but it's a ridiculous three games.

    Much like Mike Singletary dropping trou at halftime, stuff like this from Gruden would make me fire my coach instantly. 

    I'm not sure the Raiders, known to be cash poor, could afford to fire him right now, especially looking at the hundreds of millions of dollars they are going to lose playing in front of an empty stadium (if they play at all)
