Dennis Miller Upstaged by Men in Tights
I realize that I'm pretty much a day late and a dollar short on this one but did you see Dennis Miller making an ass of himself as guest host of WWE's Monday Night Raw.
Now I don't want to get off on a rant here, but Dennis Miller making an ass out of himself on national television really isn't anything new or even surprising. What was surprising about this weeks edition of Monday Night Raw was seeing Dennis Miller upstaged on the comedy front by a 250lbs professional wrestler, who was in fact wearing tights at the time of the incident.
Miller seemed disinterested, blase and even air headed towards his duties as guest host so it wasn't entirely unexpected that he would botch the name of one of the WWE's most recognizable superstars, the game, Triple H (HHH)
As guest host Miller was responsible for introducing the presenters for this years version of the WWE Slammy Awards (Which are wrestlings equivalent to the Oscars). All the presenters were WWE talent with really complicated nicknames like the "Masterpiece, "Y2J" and the "Big Show", so it's probably no shock that the "emanate guru of greatness" Dennis Miller botched one of these impressively difficult nicknames.
The bothchery occurred at a time when the sold out crowd in San Antonio, Texas had turned their focus to Miller who was standing in-front of a podium at the head of the arena introducing the Slammies next presenter, 25 time WWE champion the "game", Triple H.
Now I know what your thinking ... How in the world could an experienced stage hand like Miller botch a name that consists of nothing more then three courses of the exact same letter?
The answer really is quite simple.
You see Mr. Miller managed to string together three consecutive H's like a champ before referring to Hunter as the "show" instead of the "game".
I must admit to finding Miller's mis-step bitterly amusing. The wholesome "milk" I had been drinking began squirting from both of my nasal cavities and let me tell you...wholesome "milk" squirting from your nasal cavites really does burn.
This, however was not the height of the amusement. Without so much as a batted eye or a sideways glance Triple H strolled to the stage, took his position at the podium and immediately thanked Dennis Millburn for his lovely introduction. "Milk" again dispersed from my nasal cavities and tears began to flow from eyes.
I will never forget the night HHH upstaged "popular" "comedian" Dennis Miller during a live taping of WWE's flagship show...RAW
WWE has been featuring guest hosts since June when Billionaire Donald Trump "bought" the WWE from Vince McMahon for one night before selling the organization back to Vince for twice what he had paid for it.
