Well ladies, I was actually "enthralled" by the Eagles game last night (me? football? No F*cking way!) at our new venue The Linc (Lincoln Financial Field). It's a great looking place, but what happens when the rains come? No roof, by the way. We'll cross that bridge soon enough. Anyway, because of the importance of the new stadium, Raw wasn't on my list of priorities (or has been for a while now).
However, the big bro hooked me up from that end by taping nothing but Jericho, the women (except Stacy), Lance Storm's jamming, and Evolution. That didn't add up to a lot of time of course, but still, what was left out he told me wasn't stuff I'd enjoy anyway. He knows me so well.
I'm glad the highlight reel is staying. There is still SOME justice in the WWE. Oh come on, if What? can be a catch phrase, why the hell can't it be Didy..Doody...whatever it was? The beer catch was cute, too. Molly and Gail are really cool, and I like them a lot as a team. Then the bro tells me Gail may have pulled a Sable on Bischoff. WHY DO THEY HAVE TO BE SLUTS?!?!?!?! WHY?! Oh, it's a men's channel, I forgot...
I won't even bring up the botched spots, because that's moot. Instead, I'll just say that HHH is too damn great at being a bloodthirsty animal! :teeth clenched: The end of the cage match, I'm sure, for those of us who find innuendo in everything HHH does, gave us plenty to chew on. So, ladies, you guys can fill in whatever gaps I missed while I scrounge up some cash for the TNA PPV on MY birthday...

First order of business: Happy Birthday, Ringmistress!
Second order of business: Tucson did a much better "Do Wah Diddy Diddy Dum Diddy Doo!" than Huntsville, Alabama did. If I were Chris, I wouldn't have been satisfied with Huntsville's version.
What happens when they have these kinds of nights, where weird/odd/bad things just happen all over the place? Maybe it was the almost-full moon...
I'm still wondering what exactly happened in the Kane/RVD match. Rob has to have been legit hurt, the way they handled things after the commercial.
I have never loved Eric Bischoff as much as when he was taunting JR & Lawler: "You 2 suck", "The era of 'slobberknockers' & 'puppies' is about to come to an end", & "You 2 will be able to join Goldberg on the unemployment line." See, that's what Gail was doing -- just thanking Uncle Eric for voicing my sentiments.
HHH looks totally gorgeous in the new commercial. We so rarely get to see jeans on him, & those are gooooood jeans.
Lance twitching his pecs had me (& very nearly Golddust) on the floor. :-) That match was so much fun! They did some nice wrestling, but Lance grinning (cute) & dancing (badly) was excellent. Jackie seemed to get into the kiss, didn't she? It was a shame that they screwed up cue-ing his music, but he needs new, non-boring music anyway.
OK, Bischoff in the hall with HHH. HHH does a lovely job of threatening Bischoff, but what really was the point? Sure, all us smarky-smarks knew who the TT partners would be. But inside of plotline, who else would Bischoff have been planning?
Nice women's match, with several tres cool moves. Trish's double leg scissors / bulldog thingie (technical term) was very pretty, & Molly/Gail tossing Trish backwards over the ropes was very good. Nice psychology, nice flow. You gotta love Molly's "wooo" after the double DDT at the very end. Good stuff.
Austin rambled on for a little too long, but I figured they had him filling the time for the premature Kane/RVD ending. Christian continues to be excellent. "I'm what you call The It Boy." I want The Peep Show! (And he's polite -- he always says "Excuse me".)
Meanwhile, Sly & Rene's attempt to decapitate Spike seems to have failed. Sly definitely was late for the lift, they didn't get Spike nearly high enough before tossing him, & Spike's heels hit the ropes, rotating him around short of the table. Not good. Amazing that he's reported to be OK.
Gail pretty definitely "pulled a Sable on Bischoff." Molly being confused by Gail's comment was cute. Otherwise I don't know why they felt the need to do that. Besides, Gail's neither "mature" nor does she have big breasts. Yeesh. And JR's witty comment about "Gail may be horizontally accessible." just topped that right off.
I really like Stevie & Victoria. He was selling like a madman for Scotty, & Victoria helping is always great. Not sure exactly what services Scotty would be providing for Test, but I'm sure we could think of something. Would that be our Slash of the Night winner?
As opposed to our WTF of the Night winner. Early on in HHH/Goldberg et al, Goldberg grabs HHH's throat as for a chokeslam. OK. He then reaches down with his other hand & grabs himself a big handful of Single H & 2 H-icles! WTF?? A crotch shot is one thing, but a handful of technology (credit: Tomboy) just says to me "let's get to know each other better, big boy." Weird. Then, we had the "unusual" Pedigree, which was a whole different kind of weird. I dunno! (I'm soooo confused.)
But wasn't HHH cute sitting on top of the cage? Awwww! :-)
Not a huge amount of eye-candy per se, but the slashy bits just keep getting better & better! Good show -- I really enjoyed it. Vince in casual wear is odd enough. But orange plaid?!? (There's a Vitamin C joke in there, but I'll just move on.)
