I'm not opposed to WWE giving away PPV quality matches on free TV, but this is the one match they are really blowing it on. I guess maybe a mark for Booker like me isn't going to be able to see the story book title chase and run for the 5 time WCW champ. Unless the WWE is planning something very elaborate.

WELL, it looks like Booker got to do the honors for HHH again until he "learns how to work."
My honest hope for this week is on Tuesday HHH breaks up with Steph, on Wednesday he refuses to drop the belt to ANYONE and on Friday Vince and Steph decide to screw him out of the belt and give it to Booker T on Sunday.
But that ain't likely to happen. What's more likely to happen is HHH beating everyone else in the match.

Mission accomplished my smark ass. That motherfucker got his job back.
And once again, HHH makes a potential main-eventer look like a little bitch. If you say that he's a cowardly, sneaky heel, then why is he overpowering Shawn in the ring, and winning after hitting his finisher EVERY FUCKING TIME???
So now we've got Booker, Kane, Jericho and RVD who've all jobbed in high-profile matches against HHH, and he's returned the favor by jobbing in some meaninless tag matches and a casket match only after he took his best friend's finisher.
Survivor Series? Kick-wham-pedigree on Michaels, champ retains. And the apologists will tell us how great it was.
I just can't believe they continue to blindly push this load. How much lower does the attendance have to get before they wise up? Guess we'll find out.

Personally,I do not understand why it had to be HHH vs. the Book anyway. Wasn't HHH just in another high profile segment earlier hyping the match? Why not have a Jericho/HBK, or even Jericho/Booker as the Main Event, and then having the Schmoz at the end? Would have had the same affect, only with a much more interesting match to watch... Bug the Camera HHHog had other plans I guess....

Because, Jericho is 1/2 of the Tag Champions and WWE wanted to get in a title defense in before the PPV, and if you think Shawn is wrestling on free TV, you're kidding yourself.
HHH v. Either RVD or Booker was a good enough match as it was. The draw went to Booker.
The point is moot because the only thing most people will remember (if anything at all) by the time the end of the week comes around is the brawl at the end. That's what's important.

Why would you have the champ lose six days before a PPV title defense? It just doesn't make sense. The whole point of the night was, "I don't care if I win the belt, but I just want you to lose it." They played that up earlier in HBK's interview.

I don't know...on the surface I thought that the match was O.K.
And while HBK got the pedigree and looked to be the "last man standing" at the end of the show...I was pleasantly surprised to see Jericho take him out with the chair. And that's coming from someone who can't stand Jericho.
One question about HBK though...is it his back injury that causes him to walk like he's got a load in his pants? Or does he think that looks cool? It's been bothering me for a couple of weeks.
