    I'll check it out in a bit, but is it actually funny or is it "funny for WWE's writers" funny ?

    edit/update:

    I mean, it was good ... but definitely "funny for WWE" funny.

    Watch Smokey Mountain Wrestling on YouTube. It's basically this. I am serious.

    Nah, it's funny as fuck and Cena shines.

    I'd take a loop of two minutes of Cena over Holy Foley or Camp WWE.

    Totally different. If you want shit like this, SMW. Or OVW. Kenny Bolin with Cena is some ridiculously funny shit.

    It's funny but sadly appears to just be extended commercials for KFC.

    Enjoyed it. Would be rad if it became a regular thing released every few months.

    I haven't watched any Holy Foley because it looked like garbage. I watched first ep of Camp WWE, wasn't funny enough for me to even just leave it on as background noise. I'd put this above them but in the same category of "funny for WWE".

    I actually thought the product placement was one of the most clever things. Was definitely a bit much of it considering the length of the eps, but they handled it well by keeping it in the era. Actually kinda helped fit the vibe they were going for, for my money.

    I get the comparison to Chikara's style of humor, but not Lucha Underground's

    I'll say this - if most of those segments were half as long, and there were about 50% more segments, it all would have come across a lot better. That style of humor needs more B storylines that go nowhere, just to break up the action - random one-offs / etc, and definitely needs more/faster cuts.

    Maybe switch up the product placement a little bit - I do think it was thought-out / executed well (see my earlier post), but mixing it up a little maybe with some fake commercials as well would help it seem less in your face. I wouldn't mind if they kept the frequency even with the shorter eps as long as they trimmed down their length a bit (and also, again, mixed in fake commercials).

    Goddamn I'm giving them so many ideas for free.
