    Hence the word like. I didn't say he is Pillman. I said he's like. Watered down version. Pillman-lite.

    I wouldn't even say that. I have never found Young to be crazy or even crazy-esque. It's just the announcers and Young saying HE'S CRAZY HE'S CRAZY HE'S CRAZY!

    And now, an illustration to make this personal.

    It's like saying RANGERS WIN! RANGERS WIN! RANGERS WIN! It doesn't mean they don't choke in the playoffs.

    Your move good sir.

    Horrible analogy. Choking is what the Sharks do. Losing after being up 3-0 in a series.

    Making the Eastern Final in three of the last four years and losing in the Cup Final isn't choking. It's just not finding the right gear to get over the hump.

    As to EY, this is what crazy looks like on televised wrestling these days. They're not really going to get away with hanging Bossman from the center of the ring/cage these days.

    I suppose crazier things have happened—Joe's knife to Steiner's mouth/throat comes to mind—but I still liken him a Pillman-lite. Maybe Pillman-utra lite.

    Yep I'm lost. I think I've watched five hockey games in two years.

    However, if you want to argue that Eric Young as champion wasn't the right gear to get TNA over the hump of cancellation, I'm here all night.

    Makes sense why the X Title is green. GFW colores.

    I want him no where near the title again. But I enjoy him very much in this role. He's doing some of his best work as a heel, and it should help to fill out the middle of the card if TNA is trying to build up another baby face in the future.

    Just one not named Melendez. Because he's terrible.

    I'm thinking Eli Drake. Someone charismatic, who can handle the mic work to elevate the feud, and use EY to elevate himself.

    Once he turned to just being a dick he's been fine. I don't dislike Eric Young entirely, but not as a main eventer. Not when you have so many people out there that could have been in his spot but weren't. He's still not crazy though.

    Also, no Jesse, Robbie E., Storm or Magnus on the show.

    Finally, did I imagine this or did Josh promise to show us something that happened between Storm and Magnus earlier in the day and then never did it?

    The bigger issue I have is that he's not even like top 3 crazy IN TNA. James Storm murdered somebody, Bram is "crazy" in a hurting people kind of way (excluding tonight), and the Dollhouse is an off kilter gimmick. Eric Young is billed as the crazy one yet all those people fit the bill far more, at least in action.

    I don't remember the Storm thing, KB. Maybe he was saying next week? TNA have so many stories going right now they can't get them all on one show each week. They've effectively bifurcated the roster each week the last month, maybe even two.

    I think timing was an issue(as illustrated by the late start to the main event), that could explain why they cut out a pre-taped segment.

    As for the EY argument KB, Cole and the WWE announce team never miss a five second window to remind us that Ambrose represents the "lunatic fringe" despite him appearing far less crazy than Young. How does that not bother you just as much?

    Neither does EY. You just don't like him. They're not the same thing.

    Oh no no no. I have scientific evidence, consultation from a spiritualist, a letter from Congress and his third grade music teacher and they all confirm that Eric Young does in fact suck.

    Why the hell do they even have PPV's if this is how they treat them?
