Thought #2 was fine. Production values are really fantastic for what they are trying to do. They’ve put together a good roster of established and unknown talent. Watching 4 squash matches a week and 1 main event that comes across like a WWE Main Event match is just really tough to hook 99.9% of fans today though. The parody stuff doesn’t make sense to me and shows you what a hypocrite Cornette is.  The ongoing angle that has dominated the first two weeks with Aldis and Camille having an issue with questions from Joe Galli is just not interesting and even in 1986 wouldn’t have been.  Also, if you’re going for something old school that’s completely family-friendly in every other way, why have guys say “asshole”, “fuck”, and “mother f’n” on the show (the first 2 bleeped, the 3rd not)?  How does that fit the brand?  It’s anti-edgy in every way and then uses language WWE wouldn’t allow. I like alternatives and this is definitely an alternative to anything else being presented today, but that’s the best I can say about this.  I don’t think there will ever be an episode that makes someone say, “I can’t miss this one.”
