Just saw Hugh morrus v Lance Storm go 8 minutes. Darn good match too. Hope this is a sign of things to come and not just a once off. I wouldn't mind good wrestlers not getting pushed so much if they at least get a chance to wrestle decent length matches.

It's too bad the match ended in a freaking double countout.
Funaki v. Christian was a decent match as well, as Funaki faked a tantrum to lure in Christian.
Metal/Jakked was NEVER worth watching, since they never used their best developmental talent for televised squashes. All of a sudden it reminds me of how Heat used to be before Smackdown premiered. That's a GOOD thing.
I never went out of my to watch M/J before this weekend, and I may have to change that policy now that I've seen the new product... Storm, Morrus, probably cruiser matches when the division begins to grow... this will be the show that should shut the mouths of all of the Constant Complainers that frequent this board (and I think you know who you are).
This is pretty much off the thread having nothing to do with Jakked but it has to do with another weekend broadcast. Did anyone see the MSNBC show that dealt with women in wrestling and bodybuilding? They followed two competitors around, April Hunter (who was for a short while one of Steiner's freaks in the WCW) and Colette Nelson, a female BBer. I guess this Hunter girl is really bent on trying to make it in wrestling, and she didn't look that bad. Looked about 150% better than when she was in WCW and was literally had the deer in the headlights look while in the ring.
Anyway, if anyone caught this and would like to voice thoughts let me know. I didn't want to start a seperate thread cause I've already created two today that will likely go nowhere.
I'm not so sure that Jay Lethal has no chance in the WWE. It's unlikely that he would ever be a main eventer but he has the in ring ability to have a successful midcard and, more importantly in the WWE's eyes, he can play a character well.
