I agree with this as well. I've always like Shane because I look at him thinking, what would I do if my Dad owned WWE? I'd probably be as annoying to many people as he is, but that's why I connect with him. (for doing what he does, not for being annoying to people... ... but maybe a little for that as well).

She may have front, but what the hell happened to her legs? I can't have been the only one to notice it seems she's walking on toothpicks nowadays. Those were some seriously scary skinny ass legs. I'm shocked they didn't snap while she was walking.

Shane's definitely the most entertaining McMahon, but I think the point is if he shows up on TV (after finally, finally saying his focus is the media division after Kane) then we're in for loads more McMahon drama. Which isn't really that fun a thing.

That said, Triple H's promo and walking segment were awesome. People can hate the guy, but he brings it when he needs to.

Wow. Only thing I could think as I watched Vince in the ring, talking about how Austin stunned him was that they were REALLY trying to make it 1998 again.......without, y'know.....any of the good stuff

Also could have sworn Victoria was going to Styles Clash Trish from the position she had her in. That would have been both amusing and neat

Well for those of you pondering Elimination Chamber as WWE's plan... I think they are going to throw them all in a vote some how for Taboo Tuesday and the 1st place guy faces Cena, then just do a three-way with the next three winners and a match between the last two vote getters.

Good question and one other point. IF JR is fired then he will not be working for WWE at all? I had heard the Ross report is back online and they are thinking of using him on the internet show so that would mean he is notfired just moved to a different position....
who knows.. luckily I like to read so I read while they talk and watch a match or two on Monday nights.

You know, if Smackdown would do less talking and more good wrestling they would get the ratings from RAW easily now....

Y'know....why don't they just call it "The McMahon Family Sucktime Variety Two Hours and Five Minutes" and be done with it already?

If this is the price we're payin' to see them have access to commercial time on the likes of Bravo and NBC? Where's my eye-rolling emoticon when I need it most?

The women's match was the only saving grace about that show. Period.

On the replacing-JR front, Eric Szulczewski brought up a couple of interesting options (insidepulse.com).

    Originally posted by Eric Szulczewski
    4) Assign Joey Styles to Raw: Promise him a relatively open mic, and he'd do it. He has the personality to combat Lawler and Coachman effectively. In fact, utilize this opportunity to get Lawler out of the booth as a "protest". Assign Lawler to help Ross with the web broadcasts, or, better yet, transfer him to Deep South as trainer/booker/commentator (if they get a steady TV deal). He's proven numerous times in Memphis that he can get guys who might be considered marginal over (or recover their careers from disaster; he's very modest about the amount of help that he gave Regal in his darkest hour). That would leave Styles and Coachman, a pair that would definitely click and signify a new beginning for Raw on USA.

    5) Have Bischoff "flex his muscles" and bring in Schiavone: Yes, you object. But if you object because you were there and saw Fat Tony disintegrate in front of the cameras week by week, you know why that was happening. The reason was Bisch constantly screaming in his headset to pimp matches at inappropriate times, go off on stupid tangents, etc. Bisch won't be doing that. Instead, they'd both be talent. Also, that situation could open up some good angles as Schiavone pops off on Bisch for what happened back in WCW. This, of course, would also create tension between him and Coachman. Schiavone wants some redemption. Deep down, he'd like to get one more chance. And he's not the type to blow it.

    6) Bring in Mike Tenay: Wouldn't that leave TNA shit out of luck? You want a revival of the Monday Night Wars? Here's the first shot across the bow.


Although I think choices one (two-man booth) and two (Grisham bumped up) are more likely, I wouldn't mind these last three (#4 and #5 could be many kinds of awesome). But the other suggestion was moving Cole to Raw and promoting Josh Matthews to SD, which would work well too. Regardless, I don't think the storyline's going to end here.

And if Shane was just used for the occasional one-off appearance to counter the other three, it would be fine, but moving back to USA doesn't mean McMahonamania's called for.

Astoundingly, he didn't suggest bringing back Gorilla Monsoon or Gordon Solie from the dead* - which is odd, because that has about as much a chance of happening as any of the scenarios you've quoted.

There was once a time when most people would have said the exact same thing about Eric Bischoff being the General Manager of RAW.

Well that's hardly the same thing, and it's not even true, 'cause WWE was negotiating with Eric to come in as early as July 2001. Whereas Tenay is a guy they've already rejected (to say nothing of his being the freaking TNA booker) and Tony is a guy they wouldn't even consider.

Nah, I just quoted the good (read: ones I wanted to see) scenarios. No resurrections needed.

Have to admit though, if Vince could bring Gorilla and/or Gordon back from the dead, it might bring in a lot of new viewers. Of course, if they can't find anyone, they could always dust off Vince's 'What a Manuever' call and put him back in the booth for a while. I'm surprised he's actually stayed away for 8 years.

Is anyone else tired of the "don't give 'em what they want" swerve. They know everyone wants Shane (except CRZ) so they trot out Big Bird instead. Want Bret? Too bad. Here's a big tease with no plans of any future payoff.

The only thing more frustrating than the current product is that they intentionally shun what the people want. It seems this philosophy has gone into overdrive since there has been no real competition for the WWE. It's almost as if Vince is mocking our lack of options.

Or maybe I'm just oversensitive to crappy wrestling programs. Yeah, that's probably it.

His overbearing obnoxiousness counteracts it, but VINCE is far and away the most entertaining McMahon. He's a rugged son of a bitch!

Yeah, Shane gets to do all the big bumps & high-risk moves that cruisers are forbidden from doing, and steals everyone's heat in the process. He gets programs w/ top guys, when the company would be better served by having actual wrestlers in those spots. Screw Shane.
