Nick, Aaron and Dave (?) all together.

Wrestling News and Discussions
– Nick is unsure of ROH’s move to Monday night television.
– Aaron loved the brawl from the most recent TNA iMpact, which involved most of the TNA roster! Nick mentions a brawl on Ring of Honor on HDNet.
– Is anyone watching Monday Night Raw? Nick hasn’t been viewing since the Guest Host angle started. His opinion is B-list celebrities can’t help save the rating. Nick thinks Stallone and Schwarzenegger are B-list stars now. WWE can only get celebrities who are past their prime. Nick compares how WWF had celebrities like Muhammed Ali, Alice Cooper and Mr. T part of the program, now WWE has Seth Green, Jeremy Piven and a past-his-prime Shaq. Nick goes off about Shaq’s career with the Miami Heat. Incorrectly, Nick says Freddie Prinze Jr. was on Friends. According to Nick, people want former wrestlers to guest host, rather than celebrities and athletes from other sports.
