The WWF has started advertising talent for their 5/1 show in Germany, which will be a show by Ric Flair's RAW group. The WWF apparently finalized which talent will go where this past weekend, and the advertised names actually mean something now, compared to the names advertised for various house shows dating back as far as a few weeks ago. Based on the advertised Germany show talent, we can deduce the following:
Ric Flair's RAW group will include the following talent:
-Steve Austin -Chris Jericho -Kevin Nash -Scott Hall -Kane -Rob Van Dam -The Hardy Boyz -Lita -The Big Show -X-Pac -William Regal -Billy & Chuck -Bradshaw
The above names, along with HHH and Jazz, are being advertised to be on the 5/1 Germany show. HHH and Jazz, however, will be able to work both RAW and Smackdown. It is interesting to note that only Bradshaw is in the Flair group, meaning the APA could be broken up.
That leaves the following names as the top stars for Vince McMahon's Smackdown group:
-Hulk Hogan -The Rock -Kurt Angle -The Undertaker -Edge -Booker T.
Obviously things could change from now until RAW this Monday but this does seem to be a good indication as to who will end up where. But, like everything in wrestling, take it with caution until you see what happens on TV.

From the looks of this that championship guy may be Jericho or HHH with a face Austin chasing them on the Raw side maybe forming a new Horseman group to help Flair battle the nWo in his part of the promotion. Again this should be taken with a grain of salt since it is not really verified and it seems to end the feud b\t Rock\Hogan & nWo.

I am not sure if this will change because of Austin. If he truly has problems with Nash and Hall, do you think Vince will stick the three of them together in the same crew? I am not sure, myself, because if Austin were to have his own "Operation Shutdown" that crew will be out one face, and Nash and Hall will obviously not work with younger guys. Nash ruined every piece of young talent in his parth in WCW. Also, would this mean that Hogan/Rock vs. Hall/Nash will have some kind of blow-off before the split? I just don't think that would happen.

PLEASE, keep HHH out of the nWo!!! Good GOD< there is NOTHING more annoying to me than Trips' heel persona! "Look, I have a sledgehammer!" "I AM the GAME-UH" "[water-spit and grimace]" Not that he's any less annoying now, but...
Back to the most talented active member of the "Kliq", Syxx-Pac! What has he done to deserve being in this storyline? Umm... Membership in the nWo, membership in DX, membership in that backstage boy's club known as "The Kliq/Clique". Hardcore Holly not only has NONE of those, he had the misfortune of starting his career as Thurman "Sparky" Plugg. The former "rasslin' racecar driver" will NEVER live that shit down. He's a good worker, but DAMN! Every time I see him, I remember that gimmick and just can't take the "Hardcore" thing seriously (It's like Rush putting out a Gangsta Rap album-no one would buy it [pun intended]). Now, if he were to show up on Raw with Al Snow and reform the JOB Squad, proceeding to kick the ever-lovin' shiznit out of the nWo, I'd sing a different tune. During his time with the JOB Squad he was bad-ASS. He had the disgruntled and bitter vet gimmick DOWN. That was the one time his gimmick at the time actually made me forget about "Sparky".

I like X-Pac being in the NWO. He did some of his best heel work as Syxx back in WCW...the little guy who talks tough because he's got two big guys backing him up. People just want to see him get clobbered.

Where in the blue hell did X-Pac get those atrociously gay shorts and half-shirt? He looks like an idiot. Before he took time off, he was actually looking clean. I know his character revolves around being a scummy little guy, but he was clean-shaven, wearing a silk shirt and slacks and kind of looked sophisticated. Now? He looks like a bum. A gay bum in speedos. And what's up with the nunchuks? I can't wait for this...it will be just like the brass knuckles. And the announcers will call them "the chux" over and over and over. X-Pac sucks.
