I hate to burst y'all's bubble of thinking that Lee Marshall has left the planet. He hasn't. I was flipping channels, and turned it onto ESPN2. They were showing something called "AWF Super Classic XVII". It was an arm wrestling tournament with professional football players. As if this wasn't silly enough, who comes lumbering on the screen to interview one of the competitors? None other than Mr. Road Report himself, Lee Marshall. Maybe this was just his last stop before he Road Reported his chubby ass into the sunset.
"Benoit promises that Malenko will feel the wrath of what Silent but Violent is all aboot."
Silent but Violent? He's going to fart on him?
Benoit finally tries to use a catchphrase and he picks one that is synonymous with farting. Someone should have a talk with that boy...
The young man who came to the ring to chat with DI in the middle of his match with Curt Hennig was the same one who was the head of the "Lodi Fan Club" in that "Nitro Party" promo (which I actually thought was pretty funny) which aired on the 8/23 Nitro. He subsequently became Lodi's obsessed stalker for a few weeks - and a bit of newsboard info stated that on one particular occasion, after rushing the ring during one of Lodi or Lenny's matches, he was beaten up by arena security, who had not been informed that this "obsessed fan" was part of a storyline (one which quickly disappeared).
The only thing I've heard about this kid is that he is a graduate of Dean Malenko's wrestling school in Tampa. Either he's a promising young talent, or he has naked pictures of Jane Fonda. Either way, they seem pretty intent on getting him into some kind of angle.
