I know they probably wont let Bischoff go on another reign of terror like they did when he first arrived, and let nothing but heels go over for a month. I can see Linda showing up this week or next to name a replacement for Austin. Who do you think they would bring in? Here are my guesses: Foley Steph (since Heyman is on Smackdown Nash (he may not be able to wrestle anymore due to the neck, but he can still work the mic pretty well) Shane (maybe, but then hed have to still be involved with Kane) Regal (been gone for awhile, and could be perfect in this role)

I have to agree with Mr Heel. The end result will be Austin being reinstated as a wrestler for his rumored return to the ring. Hopefully the scenario is that he loses this match and disappears for a month or two then returns as a wrestler.
As for who replaces Bischoff? Hopefully nobody, having two comissioners takes up too match screen time and Bischoff is doing a fine job by himself.

Originally posted by Mr Heel III suspect the end result will be Austin's reinstatement as a wrestler, meaning that either way, Austin wins. So we'll end up with a Bischoff/Austin feud similar to the McMahon/Austin feud.

May I ask just what the hell you guys are basing this on? When was there some blockbuster announcement that Austin's healthy again and ready to wrestle? The last interview transcript I read he mentioned something about maybe doing one more big match, but that he still wasn't sure if he was going to go for it. So I don't know where you guys are getting this stuff from, but Austin is fucked up and he can't go full-time again anytime soon, and probably not ever again. That's not speculation, that's what he's said more less several times since returning.

I guess we are left to ponder which is worse: Bischoff's "uncontained arrogance and mean streak" or Austin's.
I remember during the women's tag match that JR mentioned that we would see a lot more of things like Terri in wrestling matches if Bischoff wins. That seemed to me like a subtle (if unintentional) hint to "Smarks" who hate that sort of thing that they should not be rooting so strongly for a heel victory.
Seriously, I also think it would be best if Bischoff wins and they shake things up somehow (even if it's only temporary until they come up with a new long term direction).
