Okay, that's funny as hell. Cena's comedic timing is awesome.

It's the devil! OOOOOOOH LAWD!

This though, christ.  Hilarious!!

I can only hope that they spoof jeff farmer somewhere down the line.

Maybe it's because I haven't really watched wrestling in awhile, but the ones I could easily recognize were SuperCena Prime, Y2J, and AJ Styles.  They should've done a more retro KFC ad and put Flair's voice through an audio editor to make him sound right for the era.

Episode 2:  Rusev was easily recognizable.  Is Orton the other guy in studio with Cena?

I actually rather like Cena. I'm not crazy about some of the booking decisions around him (lolcenawins), but the man himself seems like a good guy and has plenty of charisma.

First two guys on the tape are Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson from the (Bullet) Club.

and Karl looked more like Michael Hayes than Michael Hayes did.

Cast list for ep.1 (taken directly from the YT comments):
Lance Catamaran = John Cena
Tex Furgeson = Luke Gallows
Chad 2 Bad = Karl Anderson
Chett Chetterfield = Fandango
John Johnson = TJ Perkins
Chip Henderson = Ref John Cone
Clint Bobsky = Chris Jericho
Pelvis Wesley = Heath Slater
Ric Flair: Paid Impersonator = Ric Flair

Nah, realize that you've got a talented roster and stop over scripting them or having them do "comedy" segments because a deranged septegenarian and his pet Bucky Beaver Mother farker find them funny.  Compare Gallows and Anderson here to the Doctor bit they did after they hurt Big E's junk.  They were much funnier here than trying to make bad testicle puns.  If someone wants and is more comfortable with scripting promos, fine.  Work with them to do so.  But if you let this roster have the freedom, they will make money hand over fist.

And that's an old pseudonym for Jericho. He used that name to hype up his own talents back in the day.

Word is New Day is going to be pulled from TV until this blows over, especially since the next two RAWs are in front of smarky crowds (Brookyln, Philly)

Uh, THIS!  Dear god, if they can do this for Raw every week people would actually watch this for one.

Hell, I might even return to watch Raw more often.

All of this; work with the ones that need the coaching on their promos while the ones who are comfortable on the mic simply are given bullet points to hit.  Let them ad lib the rest of it.

And it's not like you have guys who have spent their careers cutting some great promos in the company to help (Lawler, Flair, Foley, et. al.).

Yeah I heard the special "Impact" podcast on VoW and, ho-lee shiat did they napalm the whole show.

I mean, I got sick and tired of TNA years ago when they were all "nWo retro" but...
