Ah, yes, WCW post-Fingerpoke of Doom. Especially when Vince Russo is in charge. Of course he makes a ____________ on a Pole match. A bunch of spot monkeys taking part for $10,000. Ed Ferrara mocking Jim Ross all the way down to the Bell's Palsy. You know this won't end well.
Among a lot of things wrong, a couple of things stand out: right when the match began, the pinata fell off the pole...and nobody bothered to pick it up and put it back/rip it open. Ed Ferrara mocking Ross in a tasteless manner, including three commentary bits: PINATA! PINATA! PINATA! *later* STICK! STICK! STICK! *later* CANDY! CANDY! CANDY! And Dr. Death interfering and Ed making the segment unbearable.
If you wanna know where Ed got the character from, watch this and try not to throw your computer out the window.
You can make fun of Ross, you can make fun of his botches, you can make fun of his home state...but you should NEVER make fun of his Bell's Palsy EVER.
