Todd Pettengill narrates a video package recapping the Diesel/Shawn Michaels feud. I enjoy Vince and Todd Pettengill sitting together hyping Wrestlemania for some weird reason. Vince is amazed that you can just go online and discuss Wrestlemania on Prodigy! This was a warning sign of the current social media obsession. Then, we get a Salt N Pepa recording session and get to see Vince dance to "Shoop"! Then, we jump to a Bam Bam Bigelow/Lawrence Taylor feud recap. Mongo on Raw is largely forgotten. This is the WWF's version of All Access. Something tells me Dave didn't go as crazy over it at the time as he would now.

I know a lot of people hate Todd in WWF but I always liked his hype skills for PPV. Hell if I didn't see him on the preview channel hyping Bret/Diesel, I probably would never have watched wrestling. I forgot Reggie White was on Team LT. So did Bischoff see Mongo on raw and just say "I have to sign this man based on a crappy looking brawl"?

Vince dancing to "Shoop" is like a weird mash-up of my childhood.

Todd Pettengill looks like the biggest douchebag ever.

The Greatest WrestleMania of Them All...yeah. Pettingill's earring+rattail look is a crime against humanity.

 

Video recap of the Shawn/Diesel feud. Shawn cuts a promo with Pam Anderson standing by, looking (by design) like she'd rather be anywhere else. I wonder if this booking was semi-ad-libbed after her reaction at the Royal Rumble. He gets more promo time at a WM press conference and then confronts Diesel during a live interview, promising that he WILL GO OVER. Diesel: "Over my dead body!" Oh, snap. Pettingill hypes the Prodigy chat session with Shawn and Diesel. Hey, I was there! 

 

Salt 'n Pepa hype their appearance at WM--escorting LT is far more dignified than escorting PN News, at least. Vince promises that LT vs. Bam Bam will live up to the hype, unlike all those Super Bowls. I question the worldwide appeal of this match that Vince and Todd are so convinced of. Further hype for DiBiase's Corporation vs. LT's All-Pro team. Then highlights of the McMichael vs. Kama brawl on Raw, which was actually a pretty damn cool angle. Vince and Todd break down the match in Pure Sports Build™ fashion. Todd then explains in excruciating detail all the ways you can order WM11 on PPV, depending on your cable system. Bring this man back to explain the Network, and I'm about 3/4 serious on this.

 

Pretty cool LT-centered video package closes all this out.
