Comment of the Week
The featured Ring Posts comment of the past week goes to Breakfast at Pekinese, who wrote the following last Friday in response to the entry “Desmond Wolfe: Impact Player.”
In that post, I remarked how ridiculous it looked during the Matt Morgan-Scott Steiner match on TNA Impact that referee Earl Hebner had his back turned to the action on the floor – where Steiner and Bobby Lashley were brawling – for so long. Hebner obviously wasn’t supposed to see Lashley’s interference, so he engaged in a conversation with Morgan. I posed the question: What in the world could they have been talking about all that time?
Here’s the comment:
Heb - Listen, it looks like Steiner's going to be out of the ring for a while, so as long as we got a moment I gotta ask you something, does this ref outfit make me look fat?
Mork - Ah, jeez, man, I dunno.
Heb - Aw, c'mon, tell me. I trust your judgement.
Mork - Really? Even after all that stuff with Angle constantly playing me for a fool?
Heb - Yeah, man, we all make mistakes and I know that wasn't a true reflection of your mental acuity.
Mork - Cool, man, thanks, I was worried people would hold that against me. It does look like Steiner's going to be out of the ring for a while so, you know, I wouldn't normally have a conversation like this in the middle of a match, but, yeah, Heb, all the respect in the world for you, but stripes just aren't your friend.
Heb - Aw, damn. Are you sure? Maybe I should turn around so you can get a look at the back?
Mork - NO! NO! Ah, no, I mean neither of us needs to see what's going on back there...
Good lord, if my mind was able to make sense of that I've been watching too much Russo!
P.S. “This is your brain on TNA.”
