Back to the Main Event

WWE and NBC announced this week that "Saturday Night's Main Event" will return to the network this March after a 13-year hiatus. I welcome the news that we'll once again be subject to the wrestling program that displaces "Saturday Night Live" four times a year. My only misgivings are that wrestling has slipped so far that I barely pay it any attention anymore, and that it's hard to imagine how big a deal a special wrestling card will be when there's now pay-per-views every month and four hours of new matches on cable each week. SNME was cool back when all we had were the Sunday-morning shows where the stars just crushed the scrubs.

Also, if my timing is correct, SMNE will air shortly before Wrestlemania, which means the matches will all be DQ finishes and run-ins to build plot points for the big event.

Oh well, here's hoping they'll find a way to set up a 20 minute Kurt Angle-Shelton Benjamin match.
