Last week when Schiavone picked up Cody at the airport and they were driving in the limo to the arena, that was 100% WCW.The production and presentation are fine.  The Cody and Schiavone deal was a nice touch.  Liked that.
It is the talent that seems Indy. I know wrestling that I like is lost and gone forever, but all these skinny flip floppers are just meh.
After watching Power and these I really wish Aldis, James Storm and a couple of those guys were on this show.  Not that I agree with Cornette on everything but some guys that seem like grown damn men fake fighting.  Some of these guys are just not believable from a fighting perspective.  I will say this - That kid with Jericho has a lot of talent and can be a star.  He looks 15 but he has a heel arrogance vibe like a street punk Tully Blanchard.  Refine him a little and he can be something.  Some of these other guys are just playing wrestler.  That is the vibe I get.  
But please don’t mistake me, I have actually enjoyed their show, which is more than i can say for any WWE show in the last 20 years save for the CM Punk days. where I liked his stuff.
