Clips of Bret Hart on MadTV, which was just about my least favorite television show ever. Bret Hart attacks Will Sasso with a chair and does a sharpshooter while the audience laughs and cheers, and we're supposed to buy this as a premise to set up a "real" match on Nitro. What the fuck is up with WCW suddenly having absolutely no concept of basic kayfabe and point of view? They've been slipping for a year, but this is something on an entirely different level.

Yeah this was too dumb. We're supposed to think that the MadTV skit is setting up a real angle? WCW is trying to impose kayfabe on MadTV. Too much.

This Nitro is the fucking pits. MadTV wasn't even as funny as All That and while its good to see Bret in a mainstream arena, it setting up a wrestling angle in this fashion is beyond stupid. Malone and Rodman had real life on court issues which is why that worked.

MadTV had some good on-air talent but aside from the occasional movie parody or Madden sketch, was usually sunk by horrible lowest-common-denominator writing. In other words, a perfect synergistic match-up for WCW. Sasso ain't no Frank Caliendo as an impressionist, either. He "breaks character" when Bret gets too rough with the other cast members, then he destroys Sasso with a chair to the amusement/whooping of the audience. Sasso ain't no Caliendo and this ain't no Lawler/Kaufman.
