    Last night during Monday Night RAW, Stan Bush's "The Touch" was used in a video "tribute" to John Laurinaitis. The video was meant to chronicle how terrible he was during the 80s. Great use of the song. Thought I would pass that along. Video might be available on WWE.com

    Haha I was watching it too. As soon as I heard the first line I stopped studying to stare at the screen in disbelief. It was actually a pretty funny use for it.

    It was pretty glorious, I wonder if The Touch was Punk's idea since he's a big GI Joe fan (even has a Cobra tattoo on his arm), so conceivably he'd be familiar with 80's era Transformers to.

    You didn't provide a source even if you did qualify for one.

    I don't like the idea of "The Touch" being associated with Johnny Ace. But the eighties cheesiness fit with all the Dynamic Dudes stuff.

    Saw it too. Turns out, it's the 2007 remix from Stan's 'In This Life' album. Not that I could tell. Great use of the song. for WWE.

    That might be one of the funniest damn things on WWE in years. I hope Johnny Ace embraces it comes out to it every week.

    How can he provide a source if he saw it on the television?
    What qualifies for a news cred?

    I should have said a link to the/a source. Just like the Youtube link I posted.

    Proof I'd imagine, anyone can I say I saw such and such on TV and ask for a news cred because of it. Very few of us here watch pro wrestling so, if you have something you think is newsworthy, you have to back it up.

    DISCLAIMER:

    I could be wrong, I'm just saying. Since I'm not staff, I do not speak for the staff here on TFW, just what I think is the case.

    i saw that too, but i'm bummed they used the new version, not the original... but still, it was funny... there's an indy wrestler in Colorado who uses that as his theme song too sometimes... i think that's fantastic.
