Terri:It's been a long time.
Al: I have been pining away for you.....just miss you.
Coach:What's up Al?
Al:Ah,I'm here on Excess with you guys,I'm excited to be here,your probably hearing the enterance music and all that,and your going "what does everybody want" but I don't have it any more,but that's all right
Coach:Well everybody saw this past week on Raw,you and I were by each other most of the night on Raw in the back of the room....
Al:Arm and arm...
Well no,but what I wanted to get to.....
Al:In a manly way don't worry
Coach:Talk about the attitude in the room,nobody really know where they were going,Raw or Smack Down,and right now as we talk about it we are going to put up the Raw roster,and any surprises you see in the Raw roster?
Al:Well you know it was a very tense situation for us sitting in that room because nobody like you said where we were going to go so basically we were on pins and needles you didn't know,your fate your future was going decided by who Flair or Vince McMahon was going to pick and.....
Coach: Were you surprised at all that the Undertaker was picked number one and then the NWO....
Al:I was surprised that Flair took Undertaker,I mean I'm sure that was a strategec pick on his part to upset Vince's Apple cart so to speak,ah I was suprised again that he took the NWO....
Terri:Not alot of love there
Al:Who would want the NWO?...Their....their.....
Coach:I wonder how he is going to be able to control all these guys,we will find out this coming week on Raw.
Al:I'm sure with the amount of time Flair has been in the business his experience and background I'm sure he has a plan that he has laid out for.....
Al:For the Raw team....
Terri:He does,he's my Boss now....
Coach:Since the last time you have been on Excess,things have not changed
Al:Not at all....
Coach:It's not all about Terri.
Coach:Speaking of Smack Down lets look at your team lets go ahead and look at the Smack Down roster
Al:My team,yup that's right....Hut!...Hut!
Coach:You guys are absolutely loaded
Al:We are....and yea...
Terri:Did you just say Al was loaded???
Al:I'd like a drink...
Coach:No I said the Smack Down brand is loaded....
Al:Look we got alot of talent it's going to be every interesting but the biggest thing I think about the brand extention is that the fans are the ones who are going to benefit the most this, be the whole air of competition between the two companies,whenever you have that the fans always benefit
Coach: You know when I look at your roster the best part I see is that Stacy and Torri Wilson are on the some show
Coach:They have had some classic matches
Al:Oh they have had terrific matches....I could just sit there by myself and watch them for hours and hours
Terri:Don't mind me guys....I'll just sit here and hang out here with you guys.....Stacy...
Al:Your even better because you are right here with us,your right here in person
Coach:Yea Terri you know that our favorite....
Terri:Let me tell you about some big hot guys.....put that back up and let me find my hot stud muffens that I want to talk about!
Coach:look how much power you have!,they put it right back up for you
Al:they put it right back up
Terri:Yea....Bam!,ok let me see who do I....Big Valboski.....there's Al Snow....I'll take you too
Coach:What about Al talked earlier about Chris Benoit coming back in a couple of months
Coach:He's on the Smack Down show,the Rock was the number one draft pick,so you guys got alot of competition on Smack Down as well as alot of competition on Raw.
Al:Right,but I think the competition between the two companies the two brands is what is where the fans are goin to benefit
Coach:Yea just a minute ago we saw the emotional separation of the Duddly Boyz,they were ot the only Tag team.....(Al plays like he is crying)....will you stop?
Al:I'm sorry,Tore me right in two
Coach:Will you stop....they were not the only Tag team to be separated this week,right now let look at the emotional last call party for the APA
Al plays up that he is crying
Al:Oh God it was so.....
Terri:That reminds me of the last show of Cheers,you know,all the memories that have been created at that table behind that APA door ....and now it's all over...
Al:Yea but you know it's an opportunity for all for of these men to really go into a new direction and to expand themselfs and take their career to maybe new hights
Terri:This is true
Al:Also it could be a great opportunity to jump off a cliff.....that's the chance you take
Coach:It's an opportunity for alot of WWF Superstars,a new begining for everybody,a new begining and a new Raw brand and this Monday night right here on TNN,we will change gears right here when we come back we are going to talk about Tough Enough Two,alot of questions for you after this last Thursdays show,this is Excess Al Snow the special guest star if you didn't already know
Coach:And we will be right back
Coach:Welcome back everybody,Al Snow is our special guest star tonight on Excess.....so Al did it bother you that Maven was picked ahead of you in the draft because Mr. McMahon picked Maven because he was the Hardcore champion,backfired on him
Coach:No longer the Hardcore champion but still never the less picked ahead of you
Al:Alot of people ask me that,does it bother you that Maven pined you for the Hardcore title,does it bother you that you know Maven was picked ahead of you in the draft,and I have to truthfully say that it doesn't,it doesn't bother me because....
Terri:Your a big man Al Snow
Al know...I am.....no but really it doesn't bother me because you know when I take somebody on to train them I am basically training my replacement and,and Maven and all the kids in Tough Enough are going to be a form of my legacy in this business....so
Terri:which means you have done a great job.
Al:Damn right,and I'm happy for the fact that Maven was picked ahead of me and I'm happy of the fact that Maven did what I trained him to do and was to take advantage of an opportunity and pin me.....and lets face it,we all know my win loss record,and ah I'm not going to have a legacy like a alot of these guys do like Stone Cold or the Undertaker,or Triple H,but with Tough Enough these kids will be......
Terri:You will live on!
Al: I have a form of immortality with Maven success and Nidia's and who ever comes out of Tough Enough two and(Al knocks on his forehead.....it sounds hollow)...knock on wood Tough Enough 103
Terri:You know Maven was the first ever Tough Enough winner,and now at this point we are looking at these new kids,I can't get enough,it's like every week what are they going to do next whats going to happen next
Coach:Well Al we will get your thoughts on that in a minute
Al:Oh I got alot of thoughts
Coach:But first we are going to go back a this past Thursday nights show if anybody missed it,and I know they didn't
Coach:Of Tough Enough.....
Al:Because if you did I'll stop at your house.....
Coach:Lets take a look
Fade to Tough Enough Re-cap
Terri:That was the word I was going to use you took the word right out of my mouth man
Al:I know,alot of people were surprise,between Danny,Alica and Jessie
Terri:I couldn't belive that I though it was going to be the girls,I just know it was going to be one of the girls getting cut,and Danny gets the boot,I want to know something Al Snow,your in there you got all the inside scoop,I saw the trainers and big talk about each person and when it comes down to it who makes to call on who gets cut?
Al:Well it's like a consortium,we sit down and we get everybodys opinions and viewpoints because somebody might see something I mght not see,Bob Holly might see something,Ivory might see something,Big might see something,we really take in everyones opinion,in the end it's up to Big and I and we finaly narrow it all down and make a decision at that time based on what we have seen up to that point
Coach:You know what I missed on this weeks show....was optimum fitness training I know they didn't have it......
Al:Those kids have it every day
Coach:They jumped into the Pacific ocean so they got two days off
Al:Right they got Two days off but then they had to go right back and then Rafieal who is an evil man,got to love him makes them pay for those two days they had off
Coach:You must admit this is getting pretty interesting Al we never know,and I like the way that they are getting cut this year because you never know,when you walk up to them their hearts have to be going thru their skins
Al:Oh mine is too I,I absolutely,it's a necessary evil,I hated walking up and down that line
Terri:You were standing in front of Alicia like forever,I was like...ok what are you going to do there Al???
Al:I know it's cruel but it's nessesary I have to do it
Terri:Now do any of you trainers hang out with the kids outside of training them or is it all business??
Al:I would go with them to Optimum fitness every day to lend them my support because I sure as hell wasn't going to do it,you know and stand there a cheer them no but that was about it,you know we had opportunties here and there to interact with them outside of the training,but primarily it was there at Tracks and that was it.
Coach:Yea,Terri take it from me it's not good if you hang out with the Tough Enough crew outside of you know....
Al:Yea it is...
Terri:Why have you tried it or something?
Terri:I'm thinking you have
Al:Speaking from experience.
Coach:It's not a good idea.
Coach:But it's time to take another quick break
Al:Say it isn't so.....
Coach:Well you're not going anywhere
Al:What do you mean I'm not going anywhere???
