In recent weeks, Curt Hawkins and Tyler Reks have been campaigning on Twitter to “save their jobs” on NXT. I’ve got no beef with Curt Hawkins (his run with Zack Ryder as Edge #1 and Edge #2 was fun) but Tyler Reks does nothing for me. I may have let him know, and he let’s just say he didn’t simply lay down for the three count.
@thesteelcage cause being a smart ass like that will definitely get your “intelligent” podcast over.

In honor of Tyler Reks calling us out for being smart asses, we’ve decided to crown the first ever King of the Zing. We’ve placed eight wrestlers whom we love to talk about into a single elimination tournament that will take place on our Facebook page over the next three weeks.
There’s no real criteria for how to vote – it’s up to you. Let your voice be heard!
Ludvig Borga vs Marty Jannetty [Vote Here]
Ludvig Borga, RIP. All I remember about this cantankerous Nordic was his feuds with Lex Luger and Tatanka. His kryptonite was “USA!” chants.
Marty Jannetty, RIP. Just kidding. I know.
Well, Nikki – they finally gave you a (brief) run with the Divas Championship before you left us. We enjoyed watching you walk away. And we know, of course you’re not really fat…
But Mark Henry is.
Jinder Mahal vs The Great Khali [Click Here]

Jinder Mahal is a big man with a charisma problem. WWE tends to always have too many of those. It’s kind of their thing. Maybe he’ll figure it out one day – until then, he’s relegated to poop jokes. Thanks, Marty DeRosa!
And Khali? The big man can’t take a bump, and his most devastating move is a chop to the head. We also have him to thank for the travesty known as the Punjabi Prison match. Lastly, I had to watch The Undertaker job to him in person. For this reason, Khali sucks.

Thank you Kizarny! Love, your number one fans.
And Tyler Reks? Well.. Go back to the beginning of this post. He earned it.
