Steel Chairs Taste Metallic

If you've missed it: Wayne dissed Win, Win snapped back.

As a fan of both, I'm a bit torn. Who to side with?

Their back-and-forth jawing resembles some classic mid-90s WWF storyline build-ups that would eventually lead to a big pay-per-view showdown. It's the kind of situation where "Mean" Gene Okerlund would interview Wayne, his championship belt draped over his shoulder, and Wayne would spit provocative soundbytes until he was met with a Win Butler chairshot.

So just like Razor Ramon and Shawn Michaels did at Wrestlemania X, I say we settle this in the squared circle. Both have songs conducive to wrestling entrance music ("Gash" for Wayne, "Wake Up" for Win). A Flaming Lips concert is a lot like the Ultimate Warrior's entrance sequence, what with the confetti and bright colors. And Win's band hails from Canada, which boasts a proud pro-wrestling pedigree.

This has all the makings of a slobberknocker!
