Sounds like a good show on paper. I'm still not sold on Sable and Stephanie, and I'm not given much a reason to care about the match either. I'm actually on the fence on whether I'll check out Vengeance or not. Most likely I'll pass and have one of my buds (who just happens to be a computer repair guy) tape it for me. As okay as it sounds, it's not worth nearly 40 bucks, especially 40 of MY bucks. I'm far more interested in what happens to Kane.. But like I said, the show this weeks sounds good, especially with Cena and Guererro.
How the hell does Mr. Ass and Doink get matches on PPV but not Mattitude or Spanky or even ULTIMO!?!?!?!??!?!?!
The Stephanie/Sable stuff is just really awful. I have yet to see any good come from it nor have I seen any purpose behind it. And Sable pops out for the second week in a row. Yippie, can't wait for that.
As far as Doink getting a slot over Spanky. I have a feeling they might have Spanky actually dress up as Doink. Either way, OMEGA is a prophet.
On the whole, looks like a good show, but I could do w/out all the Steph/Sable crap.
As for the requisite bitching: --Gunn over Knoble *again*? What a waste. Hopefully Knoble can pick up the win at Vengeance, but I'm not holding my breath. --APA over FBI - they spent a good couple months building up the FBI as a credible stable, only to piss it away jobbing them out to Marky-Mark, and now the APA. --what the fuck is Doink doing on the PPV? Inexcusable when Matt Hardy and/or Rhyno and/or Spanky and/or others aren't going to be on the show.

now, now, kids. Remember at No Way Out a few years ago, one of the matches was Stephanie/Trish. Now, everyone was shitcanning that match left and right before the PPV. You know what? That match freaking rocked. So, I'm having a wait n' see attitude before I judge.

Yes, we understand that, but that was WAY before the brand extension, WAY before Trish became a real wrestler (my hat off to you Trish), and WAY before we had a legitimate women's division with legitimate female wrestlers on one brand. On Smackdown (with all due respect to Sable, I like her promo skills for some reason), it's all wannabes, except Nidia and including Steph.
A lot has changed in those two and a half years, especially our tastes towards non wrestlers trying to be something they obviously aren't. Oh, and the angle behind that match two years ago just happened to have some sort of significance (at least to Trish's career), and it was FAR more compelling than two women fighting because one hit the other with a clipboard. Did I forget to mention that Steph sounds like a mule these days?

Maybe they want to keep him off camera to wear off the ring rust?

Yeah, who the f*** wants to see Billy Gunn vs. Jamie Noble at Vengeance? ... that's about as appealing to me as a sharp stick to the eye ...
The f***ing U.S. title match should have been a fatal 4-way match (elimination or not) ...
Here's what I think Vengeance should be:
1.) Angle vs. Lesnar vs. Show (WWE Championship) -- I think the buildup to this has been good. 2.) Benoit vs. Guerrero vs. Hardy vs. Gunn (U.S. Title Finals) -- Could have been a helluva a match and could have made for a good TV match of Benoit & Gunn vs. Guerrero & Hardy 3.) Vince & Sable vs. Stephanie & Zack -- Could have saved us the trouble and boredom by combing the 2 Vengeance matches. 4.) Jamie Noble vs. Spanky -- Nidia think that Spanky is a cute little boy and this infuriates Noble. 5.) Haas & Benjamin vs. Mysterio & Kidman -- Good match; leave as is ... sets Kidman turn. 6.) Undertaker vs. Cena -- decent job of booking ... great Cena promos. 7.) APA vs. FBI -- Hey, they've bulit the FBI up over the past few months, only to be jobbed out ... at least give them a PPV match.

This Eddie fascination sure is strange. Come on people, Eddie was not cheered much during his recent face stage. IMO, this love for Guerrero is more to due because Eddie is playing a cool heel.
And gee, there once was another guy who acted like a cool heel. Does the name Kevin Nash circa WCW ring a bell? Back then, many were clamoring for Nash to stop trying to get cheers. But now that Eddie is basically doing the same thing, suddenly he MUST BE TURNED FACE AGAIN! NOW!
Regardless of two recent crowds, the fans by and large will stop popping for Eddie if he is quickly turned back face. And I hope that Eddie will be written or at least act like more of a heel so that he doesn't overshadow his face opponents (namely Benoit).
Molly, Stacy and Daffney all in WWE? I suddenly lost all my will to complain about anything regarding the WWE. Hope I don't lose my street cred for this.
TS, the greatest Wiener rated 6.1554 ever to live!! Oops, I mean 5.5...4.5?? Oh, dammit! I guess Notorious FAB was right.
I watched the first half hour or so, realized it was nothing but a clip show, and turned the TV off. I guess if I'm being fair, I'm not any less likely to order WrestleMania than I was before the show, but no, this was not a good final sales pitch.
