Table for 3 serves up the memories

first_imgNORTH OLMSTED, Ohio – The WWE Network has found a modern way to bring it’s past and present together with Table For 3 on their WWE Network. The main premise of the show is to have 3 current or past superstars sit around a dinner table and talk about either the good old days, or for the ones still currently wrestling, a little bit more abot how they came together. This show is enthralling because it takes you on the inside, behind the scenes and on the road with some of the greatest names in the history of the sport. It’s a no holds barred tell all, where nothing is left behind or covered up. Here is a brief list of some of the better episodes from each season.Season One highlights includedThe first episode featured Rowdy Roddy Piper, Mene Gene Okerlaund and Mr. Wonderful Paul Orndorf. It was hard to watch because it aired right after Piper died. Just a very emotional first episode.The New Day was the feature of Episode two, and it was excellent watching their dynamic with one another. You can tell after 5 minutes of watching the interaction, that this is why they have such great chemistry in the ring as well. I was shocked by it, but it was one of my favorite episodes of Season One.Episode Three brought together Molly Holly, Alundra Blaze and Ivory. It’s simple, Alundra Blayze / Madusa equals excellent television as she always tell it the way it is.Another favorite episode would have to be when WCW Legends Sting, DDP and Vader reunite to discuss fun road stories, the Monday Night War, and tales of their battles against one another!Season Two HighlightsPat Patterson, Ricky Steamboat, and Hillbilly Jim tell stories of the road ‘nightlife’, as well as never-before-told tales inside the ring.Ric Flair, Arn Anderson and Tully Blanchard reunite to discuss their historic run, their family legacies, and the state of WWE today.Kliq members Kevin Nash, Scott Hall and Sean Waltman gather to share stories both in and out of the ring from their legendary careers.Candice Michelle, Michelle McCool and Molly Holly get together to share their hilarious experiences from both in and out of the ring. Edge, Christian and Mick Foley AKA Team Credgely, meet for dinner and discuss their unique chemistry and comedic contributions to WWE. This was easily the funniest and best episode thus far!I give this show 4 out of 5 body slams, the only thing keeping it from going all 5 out of 5 is that I don’t care for watching people eat. If I did, I’d put a mirror at my dinner table, other than that, great concept and great show! Related TopicsWWEWWE NetworkWWE Table For 3 Vince McKeelast_img read more
