I would think SOMEONE out there would want 1.2 ish million viewers a week on their network....the move to Wednesdays was good too.....I'm holding out hope that they can survive....and resign Bully Ray....he's the heart of this company right now.....


The problem is reruns of Cops gets Spike just as many viewers and costs them barely anything to air. I really don't know what other options they have, maybe one of the Fox Sports channels?

There's a network called VELOCITY that wants them, but the rights fees are like a quarter of what Spike pays them, so without backing from Panda Energy, they'd have to be a stripped-down indy with a six-sided ring. 

 

Plus losing Bully Ray after the next set of TV tapings (sans Hall of Fame induction for Bound for Glory) is like the kiss of death for them.

Wednesday?  Non-typical wrestling night.   But makes sense with the NFL on Thursday now.

Pay homage to the INCREDIBLE scoring goalie!!!! :-)

I saw CRASHER trip a kid on skates and then he stole the kids lunch money and slapped his mom when she came to pick him up.. All because the kid looked at his crease


CRASHER's official list of high stick victims from this forum:

2005 Fantasy Football League Champion... Bow to my Football knowledge !!!!!!

2003-04 NJDevs.com winner of the Masterton Award for Dedication to the Devils(still proud of that one !)

4, Four (!?!?) Time (2005-2008) NJDevs.com winner of the Whoever the damn Award for the funniest poster in the land is named after...(geesh... post pressure, but I seem ok with it!)
TWO TIME (2005, 2006) Award Winner and the man who can show Jeremy Roenick what a REAL loudmouth is all about.... hell this mouth roars SO loud, they retired the DAMN AWARD!!!! But how do you be emotional about an award for being most emotional when you're sharing it?

2008 NJDevs Stanley Cup Winner for best overall poster... where's my damn ring?

June 6, 2007... the NHL dies just a little bit.....

I saw on PWInsider I think that Smackdown is now staying on Fridays, unfortunately. I miss having impact on Thursdays, Thursdays were my big wrestling nights between it and NXT :(
