WHAT?: Brief Thoughts On WWE’s Capitol Punishment PPV And The Death Of Jackass Star Ryan Dunn
by THE INFAMOUS JCITY™
I have been quite busy for the last few days, but I didn’t forget about yall. I didn’t think I was going to see Capitol Punishment, but I ended up watching it with my fam on Father’s Day so that was cool. When I review shows I usually have them on my DVR so I can rewind certain parts and get a more critical analysis, but that’s not the case here. I am writing this using nothing but my memory and with the amount marijuana I consume on a regular basis I wouldn’t be surprised if this was the crappiest PPV recap I have ever put together, I’m just keeping it real with you guys. Instead of going the traditional route and doing the whole review thing, I have decided to bring back WHAT? in order to express my thoughts on the PPV. Also, as a huge MTV mark (at least back when they weren’t playing Teen Mom on a continuous loop) I was shocked to hear about the passing of Ryan Dunn. I loved when MTV used to show Jackass all the time and have enjoyed their crazy antics on the big screen, so hearing about what happened totally sucked balls. Anyways, usually when I write WHAT? I try to fit in as many things as possible, but this edition is only about Capitol Punishment and Ryan Dunn. Enjoy.
WHAT?: I Can’t (Censored) Believe That (This Person’s Name Is Being Withheld) Already Lost His (I Really Hate Losing Things)!!! This Is Some Mother(Bleeping) Bull(WHAT?)!!!
Welcome to another edition of “WHAT?”, the most kick ass wrestling news report on the whole fucking planet. Recently I have gotten a few request to make my take on the news a bit more humorous. I have been told that I’m funny and people would like to see that side of me on the “WHAT?”, but I am not really interesting in making a mockery of something I have enjoyed my whole life. I do not need to make jokes about things in order to be socially accepted. If a situation calls for comedy then so be it, but to go out of my way to do so is something I will not do. If you want some funny news I am sure there are a few clowns in the IWC that can accommodate you better than I can. This is serious shit over here. Anyways, this edition of “WHAT?” contains spoilers, but they are all the way at the end so you can bypass them if you wish. I’m going to go get my drink on, but I will be on later tonight to get my comment on. Happy Cinco De Mayo to the whole INFAMOUS CREW™. Drink responsibly.
“WHAT?” was a weekly rundown of wrestling related news I used to write on my old site. When I stopped writing about wrestling I had used this column as a monthly review for things happening in pop culture and I must say that it was one of the most popular features on that site. I have gotten numerous request to resurrect the “WHAT?” column on this site in a more approachable manner, and after some consideration I have agreed to do just that. “WHAT?” has gone from a weekly column, to a monthly column, and now I present to you “WHAT?” in a daily format. This was the headlines before the “Headlines” so any comparison can be nipped in the butt right now. I will try to have these up daily or at least every other day depending on the news day. This column is not exclusive to wrestling and I might add things I find of interest in the world of pop culture, but for the most part it will cover wrestling related news. I know I had retired from IWC literature, but the feedback since making a return to the IWC with this new site and writing style has been tremendous. From comments, to Twitter and Emails, I have never received so much positive feedback as I have this week and I am grateful for that. If it works why fix it, right? Anyways, this seems to be something I’m good at so I will be sticking with it for the foreseeable future. I want this site to grow in ways my other site could never do, so I will try to provide the best possible content I possibly can. For those that have never read a “WHAT?” column before, “WHAT?” used to be a chant started by “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, so this is meant to be read in the same vein as those chants. I say something, “WHAT?”, I say something else, “WHAT?”, so on and so forth. Anyways, enough of the introduction let’s get right to it.
