Mysterio gets taken out, and the guy that gets the big push by putting him on the shelf is... Albert?
The long-running feud with Dawn Marie and Torrie now takes another unnecessary twist, with Dawn Marie offering herself to her future stepdaughter so that... Torrie won't have to be her stepdaughter. Yeah, fuck this shit.
They need a heart-wrenching THIS IS REAL interview and go to... Benoit? Why are he and Angle not hugging? A divorce? Kids he never sees? Wanted to be champ since he was 3 years old? The hell?
DeMott vs. Funaki is too good for Velocity, but Matt Hardy gets stuck there?
The 4 way sounds good, who knows, but this is one of those weeks where I just wish the spoilers were fake.

But we've set up a dilemma here. Looks like we now need an official Angle face turn, unless we're going for a heel/heel match and headlining Armageddon with (Good God) HHH/HBK.
It'd be kinda odd to have a babyface where we chant "You suck" to his music, no?
Just out of curiosity... other than "it would be cool and a good match", why does everyone seem to think Angle/Brock is a sure thing for Wrestlemania? Don't get me wrong, it'd be cool and all, but it seems to me that Angle/Benoit is a more likely choice right now...
Given Angle's tendency to put people over, I really don't see him winning the belt off the Big Show as long as Brock can be back to finish off his feud with Show by the December PPV.
(edited by CxMorgado on 4.12.02 1235) Back to back!
They've been teasing Angle & Lesnar since after SummerSlam. It's one of the few, maybe only, matches that we've never seen involving top guys. That's why I'd like to see it as the Mania Main Event because it's something totally fresh. Although, I see it playing second fiddle to Triple H's match.
Not sure I like where this is going. To have Show probably lose the title one month after building him up to be this unstoppable monster seems kinda lame. What do they do with him after that? Lose a rematch to Brock at or around the rumble and then back to mid card hell? I'm not the biggest fan of Show but he's made a decent job of his latest push and he deserves, and I hope he gets better than that.
I see Lesnar interference on this one, leading to the Angle win. Kurt could then brag about doing it all himself and that could jump start the feud right there. Although, another scenario could be Angle winning and facing Benoit at WM. I've heard they want to hold off the Lesnar/Angle match for as long as possible to get the fans frothing at the mouth for it.
Smackdown got a 3.7 this week which is up from a 3.1 of last week. Even more amazing they haven't done a rating like this since early November 02... They haven't done a 3.8 since April 02 I'm not even going to try to explain this one.
