Misfits In Action (With G.I. Bro)

In 2000 (duh) WCW decided to take some stagnant midcarders and turn them into a comedy stable led by Booker T AKA G.I. Bro!

Season 6 - Episode #55: Misfits In Action (With G.I. Bro)

In 2000 (duh) WCW decided to take some stagnant midcarders (Hugh Morrus, Lash LeRoux, Van Hammer and Chavo Guerrero) change their names and make them a comedy stable. When it didn't catch on they added Booker T to the mix where he introduced his G.I. Bro persona! It's an amazing example of what happens when you take a stupid idea and then put zero effort into it. It's a stupid car wreck you just can't look away from.

Lex Luger Slams Yokozuna

In the early 90s, Lex Luger's white hot babyface run was ruined in the stupidest way possible.

Season 6 - Episode #54: Lex Luger Slams Yokozuna

Lex Luger had a very interesting run with the WWF in the early 90s. He went from commentator for the World Bodybuilding Federation, to narcissistic heel to finally getting a white hot babyface turn by bodyslamming the champion Yokozuna. But then Vince and the WWF made a decision during their match at Summerslam that has to be the stupidest idea of all time and it effectively killed Luger's race to the top.

DX in Little People's Court

That time when DX was put on trial by Hornswoggle and a courtroom of little people.

Season 6 - Episode #49: DX in Little People's Court

When DX reformed for the second time at the end of 2009 it was to accomplish one thing. Sell merch. Therefore not a whole lot of thought went into the storylines Shawn Michaels and Triple H were a part of. Thus we are led to Little People's Court. On the Christmas 2009 episode of RAW DX was tried by a jury of little people under the ring for their abuse of Hornswoggle. We promise it's even dumber than it sounds.

We also talk about the latest episode of AEW Dynamite.

In 2006, WWE decided to try and capitalize on the popularity of Pirates of the Caribbean and they made newcomer Paul Burchill start a pirate gimmick after his split with William Regal.
