      Elderly Booker: The colonel suggests that we plan ahead and have RVD beat AJ on PPV for the belt, instead of having it on Impact! for free with no build.
      Asinine Booker: WHAT?! Is he taking the piss?! If we do that, the spotlight would be off Hogan! If we have the athleticism and wrestling emphasized, this'll make Hogan look bad! Doing it on TV won't give the fans the chance to think that!
      Crazy Booker: Can The Nasty Boys be involved in the finish? They need the rub.
      Half-Hit-in-the-Ass Booker: Nah, we fired them. What about Bubba the Love Sponge? He could squash Generation Me.

They know you ain't got none. {I GUARANTEE IT!!!} If a woman tells you she's 20, and looks 16, she's {FIVE!!!}. If she tells you she's 26, and looks 26, she's {ROBBIE MORENO!!!}. Young black men, if you go to {CZW...} and someone steps on your foot, {I AM GONNA KILL YOU!!!}

    • The "American Table" is voiced by the villain from The Muppets. "Maniacal laaaugh...maniacal laaaaugh..."
  • 230: Maffew adds WWE subtext to the caucus race from Alice in Wonderland, with John Cena as the Dodo, the WWE Title as his campfire, and everyone else as the animals circling him. Cena enjoys his title while everyone else jobs to him repeatedly.

    Alice: Get over?
    Cena: You have to run with the others! First rule of a caucus race, you know...
    Alice: But how can I... [Jobs]

    At Botchamania 200, I said I'd consider ending the videos at 250.

    I will answer that question...
    (Beat)

      Kronk: Er...this lever?

  • After subscribing to the WWE Network, one of the first things Maffew did was "road test" it. In that he cued up the infamous Harlem Heat promo wherein Booker T goes, "Hulk Hogan, we comin' for YOU, nigga!" In the past it was clumsily dubbed over if not bleeped out altogether; here he wanted to see if it was left unedited. It is.
