To answer that question, let's say you had a wad of cash and you wanted to buy a fancy watch. You go to a jewelry store and see two brands: one is a shiny Rolex and the other is something called a Folex. Which one would you buy?

WWF the Rolex of wrestling? Uhm, no. Swatch, maybe.
If the WWF were a watch right now, there'd be only one hand it'd be spinning counter-clockwise at the wrong speed, and I have a feeling that the 'gold' would eventually start to fade off onto your skin.

And I tell you, WWA is not bad. I'm not sure if anyone is really booking the show though. Borash just stuck Steiner in there with the usual Road Dog vs Jarrett match when he came in, so I've got a feeling that Russo actually booked the matches and basic angles before he left the promotion and that Borash doesn't really know what to do.
I have serious doubts about Borash's skills as a booker. Remember his one good idea in Wargames 2000 actually turned out to be some internet fans idea who e-mailed it to him.
Still it keeps it simple. It's fun and it's got plenty of balls. I like it.

Macho Man is booking the WWA now. I got No Way Out last night, I'm getting the WWA one this weekend. There's no way in hell that the WWA show will be better than the WWF show, but it is possible that it will have the best match of the 2 (Eddy vs. Psicosis vs. Juventud or that Cruiser elim). However, I'm only ordering it to see Macho vs. Jarrett, not definite but I'd put money on it happening. Don't even care if the match sucks, I'll still put Macho over. There's no way he's not better than Hogan, Nash, or Hall right now.
And I think you're fat. So how do you like me now?
Also awesome: it looked as though Ace made Show the offer then and there, in the ring, to help him win in exchange for his job back. That's great booking. If this is your idea of a bad show you should probably stop watching.
