Vince Russo has a new blog on CSRWrestling.com. The former WWE, WCW and TNA creative writer brings his comedy into his confusion when asking “What The @#$%^ Is The King Of The Mountain Title?”
The following a sample:
My favorite wrestling parody today is being exhibited as we speak with Jeff Jarrett winning the King of the Mountain Title–and BELT that went with it— on a TNA ppv, and now defending that same title for his own company GFW—in small minor league ball parks around middle America. PLEASE–read that last sentence—are you actually going to argue with me that that’s NOT a parody of professional wrestling in 2015? That movie right there has FRED FREAKIN’ WILLARD written all over it! The only problem is that while Willard would make an outstanding wrasslin’ promoter in a comedic film, he is way too old to be the Champion of that same promotion in which he would actually have to defend that ridiculous title in fake fights on baseball infields in places like Indiana. But, outside of that–that is a major motion picture that Christopher Guest would have a field day with.
Man, in my own mind I have to break this down further—not that any of it means anything–but at the time it is just entertaining the hell out of me.
THE KING OF THE MOUNTAINCHAMPION.
OK, so what does that actually mean—to anybody? Well, at first glance one would have to think that Jeff is INDEED Champion of THE MOUNTAIN. So now, that extends the question—well—what MOUNTAIN are we talking about? Now, I believe that he actually won this epic match in Orlando Florida at an amusement park, but I don’t believe there are any MOUNTAINS in Florida. However, there are mountains where both TNA has its headquarters and Jeff Jarrett lives—Nashville, Tennessee–the SMOKEY MOUNTAINS. So now, one would have to ask–is Jeff the KING of the SMOKEY MOUNTAINS?
