Umm...I mean I've heard...er...DAMMIT!!!

Still...much braver than the screen name "Hogan's My Dad"? That depends on which circles you run in.

I watch and love Judging Amy too...

And I think my angle would work. The difference between that and HLA and necrophilia would be there would actual be a payoff to the controvery. The controversy being that HHH says/does something around Booker T's race, and the payoff being that Booker beats HHH for the title. I don't know if Brian Gertwitz or Stephanie *COULD* write it (the way I envision it, HHH says something stupid and gets immediately alienated in the locker room for it), but it can be done and could work.

The TNA stuff and the stuff they did in 1997 isn't really the same as my suggestion... that's more playing a black militant type claiming racism. Booker wouldn't be claiming racism or anything like that. HHH would just call him a name and it would piss Booker off, but Booker would never play any sort of "race card" as it were and say that he doesn't get title shots cause of his race. He'd just be like, "Hunter a jerk and he shouldn't say that shit and I'M gonna put him in his place."

Actually, the more I think about it, the NWA-TNA stuff doesn't work because Ron Killings is a horrible wrestler, and the Faarooq/UT stuff didn't work because the matches were horrendous, and the angle was just an attempt to distract from what a steaming turd the match was.

Eh...

After having just done the HLA and necrophilia, I'm not convinced that WWE has to be quite that controversial just yet.

I mean, Booker T's promo against Triple H on Monday (and their subsequent match) already built up considerable heat between the two. Besides, everyone remembers how horrendous the last racism angle was.

Rikishi: “I did it... for The Rock.”

Perhaps the issue between Triple H and Booker T could be partially built on the fact that Triple H has Booker T's belt. Booker's made such a point of saying he's a 5-time WCW Champion that it's become a catchphrase, but perhaps Trips could throw this retort in there:

“That was triple-A ball, Book. Here in WWE, we play in the major leagues.”

Then it could become very interesting. Booker T is one of those rare WWE Superstars who's still primarily thought of as being a WCW guy. Certainly, there are plenty of WWE Superstars who used to be in WCW (Triple H included, for that matter), but no Superstar, save Flair, screams “WCW” quite like Booker T. Hell, if you tally up the total number of times that WWE has referenced WCW post-Invasion, I wouldn't be surprised if two-thirds of those references were by Booker T.

The angle could suddenly become “Former WCW Superstar struggles to make a name for himself against the powers that be in WWE”, and that could be a compelling angle.

Or maybe not. Who knows?

And that, as they say, is that.

Nah, I just think it's so that HHH can get in a pre-emptive win before Book gets the title at Survivor Series.

It's just more pre-PPV hype. Expect another HBK run-in, probably not as sucessful this time.

And I'm standing by what I said months ago - Rob Van Dam will win the WCW-ish Championship at Survivor Series. (I'm not 100% certain about that, but I'm positive it won't be HHH.)

I'm excited about every RAW. Live shows are always fun to watch. When they're over, I can look back and say well that could have been better but when I'm watching, it's exciting.

As for Judging Amy, I like it too. Vincent and Kyle are fun characters to watch. I also like The Practice, Hack, and Criminal Intent/SVU (not so much the original L&O anymore). 3rd Watch and Crossing Jordan aren't bad either. Without A Trace seems to be good so far. Now that I've veered off on a tangent (yet again), I'll be silent.

I'm pretty sure the Booker T/NecropHHHiliac match is non-title, which makes me think Booker can pull out a win, but not without interference from HBK. But hey, a win's better than jobbing.

But what pisses me off is the opportunity that keeps getting squandered. They could EASILY have Booker play up the fact that he's held the gold belt 5 times and BOOM! Insta-feud! Instead, we're hot-shotting a potential money-making match for a cheap rating.

It's because of "logic" like that that Austin walked out.

I'd like to see Book walk out of Survivor Series with the title, but, does anyone seriously think it will happen? I have no idea what they are building to for Wrestlemania on the Raw side, but that's when I see the Book taking it.

Well, I'll go on record saying either Booker or RVD will win in the elimination Chamber. Feel free to laugh at me after the event is over.

OK then...I'll go on record with this:

HHH will walk out with championship via some kind of schmozz finish in the elimination chamber. Either Flair interference, or another "shocking swerve" that'll draw yawns.

The title will then be hot-shotted on RAW the following night to either Booker or HBK.

I like the predictions like this...just like a football pool, if the game (no pun intended) is boring at least you've got something to watch for.

Fine, this is how I think it all goes down. I don't know how to factor in HBK. He's sort of a wildcard here. I know I said earlier I see HHH walking out with the belt, but HBK could win it and then vacate it the next night. That's what I see happening, only if HBK wins. If HHH wins, he's wrestling Booker at WMX9.

I'm glad it's occurred to SOMEBODY that a Triple H win tomorrow night would hint at him losing at Survivor Series...besides, it's non-title, so Booker has nothing to gain here.

Common sense booking says that Triple H beats Booker T, most likely because of Jericho interference since, you know, Booker and Jericho are feuding and all.

Hell, Triple H has already lost twice in as many Raws to guys who will be in the Elimination Chamber with him...and if you want to get REALLY technical about it, all five challengers hold wins over him in the past at some point. Booker beat him on a Raw early this year, RVD pinned him in the tag match a couple of months ago, Jericho beat him for the belt in 2000 before the decision reversal and beat him again on SD earlier this year to earn a shot at Hogan...Kane's beaten HHH a bunch of times, including the chain match and the casket match...and Michaels beat him at Summerslam(not to mention a bunch of times prior to HHH's big push).

If HHH hits TOO big of a losing streak heading into the PPV, that means that he'll probably WIN the Elimination Chamber matchup(since the angles would point to him being in trouble)...so don't shed too many tears if Triple H wins tomorrow night.

Yeah, I'm looking at a non-finish tonight with all six guys storming the ring. Pier Six Brawl, I guess?
Anyway, look for old HBK to take a Pedigree at some point. The other guys (yes, including Booker...) are all just window dressing for this match. No one is walking out of Sunday's match with the belt besides HHH or HBK. I don't even want to think about possible "screwjobs"...

Well, I doubt RVD will take it. He hasn't spoken in two months, and I can't even remember what matches he's been in. He's been made into a non-issue faster than anyone.

I still think Trips will take it, or he'll job to Shawn Christ. But is Shawn in any position to be a champ? A match here and there he can handle, but is this guy really going on the road? Even for a week?

Maybe even have HHH say something like "A boy like you will never get my belt." I mean, it would have to be done just so, HHH would have to be allowed almost no offense so the fans get the satisfaction of seeing Booker beating the crap out of HHH. This would put a lot of heat on the rematch that could simmer until WMIXX, drum up some main stream pub - but again the WWE would have to do things just right and tell the story in such a way that says, "We're not racist, but we using the race of Booker T to show that racism is wrong." It would be like when a movie is made about racism in the 60s South, the actors who play the good ol' boys don't believe in salvery, but have a story to tell and by acting like racists show how wrong racism is.

    It would lead to a huge payoff with Booker winning the belt for all the right reasons and everyone would feel good cheering Booker on. But they'd be truly booking themselves in a corner because if HHH got cold feet about doing the job, it would RUIN EVERYTHING in an exceptionally tragic way.

    Any thoughts?
