i totally agree that there are several suspects in the hbk assault. heck, maybe it's seven guys from syracuse. who knows.
more to the point though, why didn't jr or the king say "hey wait a minute. big show overheard hbk tell the guy backstage that he was going out to the parking lot. fans, this smells of the big show i tell ya by gawd!"
are they watching everybody loves raymond on those little monitors? every fan at home can put this together, and call out bigshow as the obvious culprit, but jr and the king can't see anything happening there?
bobhollystillrules -- point taken about them never calling out those mistakes, but does that make it right? so the wwe screwed up on their timing, do they have to ignore the obvious? there's a guy *standing in the ring with a chair about to hit ric flair* just say it jr and cover it up with some staggered pauses. don't pretend that we're all watching david blaine.
The luck is gone, the brain is shot. But the liquor, we still got. Doug Coughlin, Cocktail
"Unfinished business" could have referred to greeting Chris Jericho.
But of course it could have meant HBK, and I would think that's what we are suppose to think.
BTW, that was a fine program. What's great is that I'm actually enjoying ALL the matches. Not a stinker in the bunch. Closest thing would be Undertaker/Chris Nowinski, but I even thought that was good for what it was (hell, Undertaker even sold some moves for the kid). Eddie/Booker T, RVD/Benoit, and Rock/Flair was great stuff. And the Big Show-Molly/Buh-Buh-Trish worked for me too (how about that Doomsday Device used by Trish and Buh-Buh)
And in a way, I'm almost buying into this brand thing. I'm actually thrilled that Raw picked up Storm, Christian, Test, and Jericho, since Raw is the show I watch the most. It's almost as if my team is winning. I know that's kind of silly. At any rate, this show is entertaining the heck out of me.

"You can't fire a gun in a confined space! What are you tring to do, make us deaf?!" "Just get out of the chopper." "What?" "Get out of the chopper!" "The crops!?" - Jack Lemmon and James Garner, "My Fellow Americans", and the reason I say "The crops?" instead of "Huh?"
You are all so, so stupid! Big Show…No it was the Book! No it was Rikishi! No it was Verne Gagne, mad at Shawn for not jobbing the AWA tag-straps like a man. When all of us know if there’s ANY ONE MAN who wants revenge on HBK and would choose a WINDOW TO THE FACE as the means of vengeance, well, it had to be the one, the only, MARTY JANNETTY! Oh wait, someone already made that joke. Uh…Now I’m really on the spot…Glass….Shawn…..Revenge….Oh, I’ve got it, by George! It’s Sensational Queen Sherri! Shawn pulled her into the way of that damned mirror back in '93, and flirting with the Model Rick Martel was hardly enough revenge! Plus, he took her song and did a cover on it, without changing the words. ‘Eat your heart out girls’ doesn’t make a lick of sense coming from the sexy person the song is about, does it? Yes it was Queen Sherri…Who was in league with the Book (since she managed him as Sister Sherri) and of course the Big Show (who is implicated as the man who knew Shawn would be in the parking lot, well, him and the arena full of people…). See, Book and Show are in league together along with Sherri, since they earned each other’s respect by facing each other at the PPV. Then, Sherri brings in the last men to fill out her stable, Macho Man Savage and The Genius, Leaping Lanny Poffo, Macho’s underused, talented, and fresh-minded gay younger brother. This will all be woven together as part of Bischoff’s plan to up the ratings, before, some weeks from now, it is revealed that he and Stephanie were in league all along, as well as Shane McMahon, Paul Heymen, Lee Marshall, the rest of the guys from WXO, Jim Crockett, Ted Turner, an angry and vengeful Superstar Billy Graham, Brent Bozell, and of course, for the first time EVER as a heel---LINDA McMAHON! This all leads to what the wrestling world has been waiting for…for so long. The return of Vince, who beats all the aforementioned persons in a gauntlet match. This will all happen within the next two weeks, and then Vince will bring back Austin and feud with him until one of them dies.
That’s my guess. That or it was Hogan, still upset at Shawn for calling him a dinosaur at the King of the Ring 1993, after Hogan had lost the title to Yokozuna. Thanks only, I remind you, to a crafty Oriental photographer. Yes, Hulk holds a grudge, brother. That's why Orndorff had no job right now. "Brother, he worked stiff every single night."
Sorry about calling you all stupid. I just got all antsy.

Originally posted by HitTheSnoozeButtonFor my money, I really think Team Canada, (I like that name better) beat up HBK, cuz after all, they said they weren't done with their night. Unless they meant they had to go to McDonald's for the post show meal.
This, ladies and gentlemen, is an astute viewer.
I like the way WWE is making HHH vs/with HBK more than a one-dimensional story. There are a ton of possibilities here, and I like most of them.
Several other story opportunities brought on by the jumps:
Jericho and/or Benoit join(s) the UnAmericans, or reform the Canadian Chrisses. Regal joins the UnAmericans (that's the good thing about the name; it doesn't limit membership to Canadians). Jericho or, more likely, Benoit turns face and rekindle their feud. The UnAmericans vs The American Badass
WyldeWolf1 The Man of 1,007 holds, making him 3 holds better than Chris Jericho!
Yes, this is the kind of thing I'm talking about! Sports Entertainment, pyro, enterance videos, interviews, storylines... they're all great ways to package pro wrestling, but they're just that - packaging!
