So I read on the front page that the Muppets are going to host RAW? WTF? I felt as though they were getting away from the PG thing. The Muppets? Well I hope the Cookie Monster does this!

Well McGillitunga might have a match against Lawler, so wouldn't rule it out.

Sorry, I just intended it as McGillitunga, Lawler, were muppets. "Muppets" is like a slang term for a doofus, idiot, in the UK anyway.

Urban Dictionary:

"muppets" - An alternative term for idiot or moron. Usually used in the UK to describe someone who is incompetant or gormless. Taken from the name for the popular Jim Henson Puppets. - "You bloody muppet!"

Bad, I know. lol

Put some computers and a tv of Raw in front of them, and just keep going back to them after a match/skit. The muppet analogy of the IWC.

The Muppets are hosting Raw!
What do you think will happen? What do you want to happen?
Personally, I would love to see Kermit flirting with the divas... and Fozzie Bear being added to the "Hall Of Pain"
That's right... I love seeing puppets being crushed!

-sigh- The sad part about this is, is that no one reads threads like this and sees the sad state of affairs the WWE is in. Why the hell is anyone talking about more or less looking forward to what a bunch of muppets are going to do on RAW vs. Wondering just who the Undertaker will prepare to sacrifice.

I'm not too sure about that. I personally love Segel but WWE audiences are just brutal to guest hosts. Only a few have risen above. I'm a big Seth Green fan and I was appalled at the car wreck Raw he co-hosted. When Seth can't save a show, you know you're in the shit ;)

Its not smarky to be over the age 13 and actually want to see something a little more mature than muppets on a wres...I mean entertainment show!

Lets be real...you wouldn't rather see an Inferno Match, Casket Match, Buried Alive Match or just classic Undertaker stuff opposed to Muppets???

Robstar
10-24-2011, 04:26 PM
I think it's pretty naive to think WWE is willing to listen to what fans want rather than presuming to know and feeding us crap. But we keep eating it up, so what kind of message do you think that sends back to WWE? Wrestling fans simply will not turn off in protest, they haven't got that kind of solidarity with each other.

Considering the Classic Undertaker stuff can only be done (without looking stupid) by the Undertaker, and his last appearance saw him leave on a stretcher, I'll take the Muppets. I would like to see the Undertaker LIVE to be inducted to the Hall of Fame.

Also, the Inferno matches were stupid. You pretty much knew from the start who'll win.

WTF, man....

LMAO, the marks come out at night (sung in the fashion of Whodini's "Freaks Come Out At Night").. A sacrifice from the Undertaker is as real as a muppet's heartbeat.. You are a walking, talking oxymoron if you think an inferno match or a fake sacrifice by a fake zombie man is more mature than a muppet cameo.. Plus the Muppets are from the 70s & 80s, I dont think most kids would even know the Muppets these days.. I havent seen a Muppet on TV in at least a decade(minus Kermit)..

Yea!!! We can have Statler and Waldorf do commentary, Beaker & Sheamus vs Jack Swagger & Sam the Eagle in a Tag Team Turmoil Match, Rizzo the Rat as Special Guest Referee in a Cody Rhodes vs Randy Orton match, Air Boom with Gonzo vs The Usos with Dr. Julius Strangepork for the Tag Championship, a Diva six person tag match with Beth Phoenix - Miss Piggy - and Natalya vs Kelly Kelly - Animal - and Eve, have Pepe the King Prawn and Hornswoggle do interviews in the back, Kermit can be a guest GM with Laurinaitis, Fozzie Bear introduce the return of Y2J - ( hey it's made up anyway ), a Buried Alive match between The Swedish Chef vs Dr. Bunsen Honeydew, and for the Main event we could have Cena vs Del Rio vs CM Punk vs Miz vs R-Truth vs Dolph Ziggler in a Lumber Muppet Championship Scramble Match.
