It's Saliva. They probably are the No. 1 band WWE likes to use and it's great to hear them back on my TV.

The show was ok, nothing too special. Tables match was only thing in the ring to note, ending of diva seg was great and highlight reel was good. Other then that nothing much.

Was it just me, or was HHH upset that they gave him Aquafina during that "Heres a quick peek at the CT studios!" segment?

There is a vast difference between genuinely losing a match, and consciously DECIDING to give up the W in favor of demolishing them on the spot. No one in the audience, aside from a cynic or a smark, looked at Batista and thought he looked weak for losing by DQ, when clearly it is what Batista wanted.

Batista looked badass. His stock went UP, in my opinion.


As for the topic - people really need to get off this "it's just a full-nelson" high horse. Finishers have credibility if you establish credibility. Jake Robert's DDT? People's Elbow? Hogan's LEG DROP? Ultimate Warrior's SPLASH? COme on, these are all moves that were *given* credibility by the booking. Besides, who even USES a full-nelson nowadays? Most casuals haven't really seen it used much. I'm not saying Chris Masters is necesarily the superstar of the future or anything, but man have people judged this guy far too quickly. If you hate the way WWE is presenting him, fine, but give the guy a chance - he's had like 3 matches, and he's really pretty decent on the mic.

Agreed with 99% of your post, but I'll contest this part.

Sorry, but getting dropped forehead-first onto the mat, and rather violently at that, is what sold Jake's DDT...not any booking behind its use. It was the visual that made us believe in its effectiveness.

Yeah, forgot to mention that- Triple H pointing to the water with a disgusted look on his face as the last thing before commercial was classic. But isn't that the normal water he drinks?

My point was that he was not the only one using a DDT. Others used it as a non-finisher. Jake's DDT was booked to be sold as death, and that's why it was credible as a finisher - because of the booking.

I only titled the thread that because there was a VERY audible "It's just a full-nelson" from someone in the front row during that segment. It was cool timing, I thought.

Perhaps he would have liked it with urine in it?
