Jeremy Piven is on Entourage, which I try not to hold against him since he’s the only thing approaching good on that show. He also stars in The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard, which he recently promoted by appearing on WWE’s Monday Night Raw at the Mohegan Sun Casino. Accompanied by his sidekick Ken Jeong*, Piven announces the “lumberjack match” between John Cena and The MiZ, whom Piven keeps referring to as “Le Miz”. Haha, it’s funny because no one there gets it. And wait a second, isn’t The MiZ that guy from The Real World who everyone laughed at because he wanted to be a wrestler? They actually let him be a wrestler? Where have I been? Oh that’s right, not watching “raw” wrestling. Call me old fashioned, but when I hear “lumberjack match” I expect someone getting hit with an axe or f’d in the B. Or at least some flapjacks. Buttery, syrupy, muscular flapjacks, all laying on top of each other? Mm-mm, my stomach has a boner just thinking about them.
