The WWE has the tendency to let the wrestlers improvise outlandish stuff after the show, and if something is incredibly amazing, it tends to make it on tv. The "Pimpin' ain't easy" improvisations made it into a comedy monologue Foley did on some pre-Wrestlemania XV special that aired on USA. The Austin-Rock singing "Margaritaville" had occured after a few shows before it became a segment on the Raw before Survivor Series last year. And there are others I can't think of. I know they taped this, and if this doesn't wind up on Confidential, expect this to be your 20+ minutes of dialogue on a future Raw.
I want to get up and do something. I just... can't.
Other than the Mac-A-Roonie, Dead Man Spinning and all other lines which still bring me to tears when I read them, I also liked Triple H's line at the end. “I hate you,” he said to The Rock. “And I hate all of you too!” he shouted at the crowd. Hahahaha. Reminds me once again of Foley's books and Al Snow's tendency to (after getting hit with a particularly vicious verbal knockout) say “I hate you” to Foley.

Originally posted by deadbeaterThey should have shown THAT on Raw instead of that tepid promo at the beginning. How come the national audience don't get to see some of that?
Probably because it was all very out of character for the heels. (esp. the unamericans who are supposed to fighting the UT.)
"And in front of the entire world, I want to show my little boy that sometimes - just sometimes, you have to FIGHT to be a man." - Michael S. Hickenbottom, the man who does not take part in angles that conflict with his religion, swearing violent revenge on HHH in full view of his two-year-old son. 11:06 PM, EST. 08/05/02. This angle is sponsered by the book of Joshua.
At this point, I don't care about the fact that the skit involves players being out of 'character'. I want a good, funny skit shown on TV, not read about it late at night. I sure many other fans do too. Ok they can cut the 'fagaroonie' part.
What's wrong with the wrestlers interacting like they got harmonic chemistry, as opposed to being always at war with each other? US and the world vs al Qaeda, that is a war. There is no way they can match that war's intensity, and if they try (as in the Un-Americans promo last week), they will be knocked down for it.
"Business has just picked up" says JR. Then right on cue, Molly enters the arena! Never was JR any better in introducing someone. --Raw 7/15
The 'Mac-aroonie' line was used at least a couple of times during the Shane/Booker alliance.
The Rock singing should never be included among 'funny off-camera' bits. The less singing the Rock does, the better. I always get the feeling that when he sings, it´s a lot less because he thinks it´s funny, and a lot more because he actually thinks he´s a great singer.
Expressing myself EVERY day - but especially on July 22, 2002!
I believe the expression is; "If the crowd is popping, I don't think he'll be stopping". The crowd always seems to go crazy when The Rock busts a tune or two, which is probably why they do it every once in awhile.
"When Eddy RUDOS like an absolute mother____er for Rey and Cena, I hope you realize that nobody else on EARTH- EARTH- Earth being Mexico/Japan/Puerto Rico- is as good as the absolute mother____er that is the mother____ing GREAT Eddy Guerrerro."
Originally posted by chazerizerOh come on. If Rock-E actually thinks hes a good singer, then we're in trouble. Even in a brain that has taken that many beatings, no one could possibly consider his singing good.
Have you forgotten his "hit single", "Pie"?
He made the Boss look more like... the Assistant Manager!

Sounds like you answered your own question. HHH has been on a quest for the belt since No Mercy, which goes back to October. How much interaction did Austin have with HBK or Rock leading up to those WrestleManias before the Rumble?
