That segment just goes to show the miracle of video editing. The entire segment actually ran 20 pain staking minutes. Here's a 'live report' on what went done unedited:
"-In the ring, the contestants were assigned their first test: Cut a promo on the Big Show with only 20 seconds of time each. Most cut pretty vanilla promos, with Mike "The Miz" Mizanin of Real World fame getting the best reaction - a mixed one - while all the others were pretty much booed. To Mizanin's credit - there were a few "Miz" signs in the crowd.
-Next test: Take a body slam from The Big Show. Several of the guys completely no sold the body slam,immediately jumping right up. This was a BODY SLAM from the BIG SHOW, and they absolutely no sold even a bounce in the middle of the ring. You could actually see a producer or someone call Al Snow over and tell him something in a panic, the final few guys actually took extra shots from Show so that they'd make some effort to sell. Probably a 20 minute segment in all."
These kids are clueless on how to work and project a story to the audience. Here's the 7' 500 lbs Big Show doing 'vicious' body slams, and the kids are popping up, laughing like fools, acting like it had no effect in front of an arena full of fans. This is NOT what WWE wants.
The guys who took extra elbow and knee drops were the biggest dunces.
