Well, that wasn't too shabby at all, in my opinion.

Nash v. HHH wasn't even the worst HIAC ever, thanks to using lots of toys. Pretty funny that HHH kicks straight out of the Jackknife, but even with a delay in the count, Nash can't kick out of the Pedigree.

RVD's getting chokeslammed to hell tomorrow.

Anybody else laugh at Steiner screwing up TWO SECONDS into the match (he fell off the apron when trying a double axhandle).

The main event was better than it hand any right to be. Took me back to the Attitude days.

Austin / Bischoff was horrible. I would have dug it if I were twelve.

Goldberg / Jericho disappointed me. I really thought Chris could top DDP's match with Whisker Biscuit. I guess you gotta be friends with Bill to do that. There were a couple of great, stiff shots in there.

I really don't think Bill's ready to take on HHH.

Booker losing pissed me off. It looked like they had a great match all ready to go, then tacked on a BS ending. On the bright side, maybe Vince knows Goldberg ain't ready so Booker can go on to the World Title at Summerslam.

[Edit: thanks mods. I should have waited.]

Booker didn't lose, but it was still a BS ending with Christian getting himself DQ'ed.

I dunno...Ending the PPV almost a half hour early irritates me. It was like a 20 minute longer version of RAW.

I did think that Test/Steiner was way more entertaining than I thought it ever would be.



Yes, I like HHH! What's so wrong with that?

I was really dissapointed with the PPV, until the last three matches. But those matches saved it.

Highlight of Heat was the Mack/Nowinski/Dudleyz segment. They screwed the thing up twice. First, they panned over to Teddy Long and his group, and their all looking off to the side, waiting for their cue. Then, Nowinski totally blanked on one of his line ("I know you and I come from different ethnic backgounds, but, um... I know you and I come from different ethnic backgounds, but, er, uh...I know you and I come from different ethnic backgounds, but...").

Nowinski/Mack v. Dudleyz was better than it should have been, but not good, either.

Steiner v. Test was good, if only for the fact that Steiner fell FLAT on his face about one second into the match. Priceless. Subpar match, but at least Steiner winning means that the feud is over (hopefully).

Christian v. Booker T was good, but the finish ruined it. God, that finish sucked. Out of nowhere, Christian hits Booker with the belt, the bell rings... AND THAT'S IT! uggh.

La Resistance v. RVD/Kane was poor. La Resistance are horrible. ESPECIALLY Grenier. God, the guy has NO CLUE as to what he's doing. And, RVD and Kane both seemed off tonight.


RVD's getting chokeslammed to hell tomorrow.


Yeah, remember when we all said that the night after No Way Out? The booking team seems to forget about RVD/Kane feuds after they start them.

Goldberg v. Jericho was good, and the booking was tremendous. Jericho is a miracle worker, as in the past year he's had good matches with Steiner, Hogan, AND Goldberg.

Flair v. Michaels was good. They seemed to be off on a few spots, but overall, it was a good match. Holy shit moment when Michaels dove onto Flair through the table. At first, I could have sworn he knee'd Flair right in the face on that spot. Thank god he didn't, but Flair DID cut the back of his head open. I hated the finish, as I would have prefered that this match finished clean, but whatcha' gonna' do?

Triple H v. Nash was very good. They booked it tremendously. Neither guy did anything out of the ordinary, but used enough gimmicks and blood and such that the match ended up being very enjoyable. Kudos to Mick on the sick bump, hitting the back of his head on the cage. Excellent booking in this match. I was expecting nothing, and got an entertaining match. What more can you ask for?

EDIT: Oh, I almost forgot. The Redneck Triathlon? FUCKING STUPID, from start to finish. HORRID. Fine if it was Raw, but I don't pay 35 bucks to see this shit. The booking team has got to stop this "PPV's should be more like RAW" shit. Nobody pays $35 to see a three hour RAW. We pay it to see a PPV!

In Steiner's defense, It looked to me like that damn satin/silky/slick banner thingy was partially up on the apron. When he went to push off, his foot slipped. Lucky he didn't seriously hurt himself when he landed head first on the ramp. I will point out that twice Steiner didn't get enough lift/rotation on his suplexes and almost dropped Test on his head. Any one else notice Poppa Pump copping a feel of Stacy's ass in the ring post match and her apparent displeasure?

I was having a meeting of my RVD fan club during the Test / Steiner match.

The show did come off like Super-Raw. Like it was the best possible version of Raw given the story lines they're running now.

Booker / Christian was shaping up so well. It had all the signs that Booker was going over. You had the axe kick with Christian's head over the top rope. Booker busted out his missle drop kick. Booker was just on fire.

The quizzical thing is that JR said Goldberg / Jericho was "far from over". Could this be a sign Bill won't be Hunter's next challenger? Or is it just one of Jericho's lingering feuds (a la Test).

Hmm, only one face won tonight, if I counted correctly. Whoever said that this was like a 20 minute longer RAW, umm, yea, with all those commercials and all... Anyway, the main event wasn't that bad. HBK and Naitch was alright, but the ending was stupid. It was better than I thought it'd be, but what was the point of Foley coming back, I mean really. I love the guy, but it seemed kinda pointless. That redneck triatholon stuff was retarted. Maybe it was like a 20 minute longer RAW, if you count out all that crap. Hopefully we have a good RAW tomorrow, they have a clean slate right now, with 2 months to build it up.

Man, I knew they wouldn't give Booker the belt at the PPV, so I at least thought Christian would go over by pinfall. I didn't think it was possible, but they actually pulled off the WORST POSSIBLE ENDING! Who the hell was that ending supposed to benefit??? It doesn't put Booker over and it made Christian look weak! Just stupid!

Hell in the Cell was not a classic, but it did have one redeeming quality. It wasn't as bad as UT/Bossman's abomination.

What the hell was up with the tag title match? Man, remember when RVD and Kane were challenging for the world title? Yeah, that's them losing cleanly to the green frogs.

I KNEW Theodore Long would go after D-Von eventually, but I didn't expect it to pan out tonight. Hey, if this leads to something INTERESTING with the Dudleyz, I'm all for it.

Test and Steiner was as bad as expected. Steiner's "dive" will go down in infamy with Erik Watt's "dropkick" and Jackie Gayda's "top-rope bulldog".

The Redneck Triathalon was bad, but it did have one redeeming quality. Mae Young got the stunner! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! And people wonder why I like Austin so much?

HBK and Flair reminded me of a TNA main event: good, bordering on great, wrestling marred by a run-in finish. It was good while it lasted.

I guess Goldberg got his way after throwing tantrums in the back. If this idiot isn't out of a job by the end of the summer, I'll be SHOCKED!

Bad, bad, bad PPV. But on the upside, I liked the promo for the Smackdown PPV. Kurt Angle rules all!

Dudleyz v Nowinski/Mack was pretty sloppy. Nowinski's still way too green. We saw Bubba and D-Von on their own before, please, never again. At least let them stay stale together.

Test/Steiner was better then expected especially after the opening spot. Test showed some decent charisma and the crowd is really into Stacy. So in Stacy, that her being stuck with either of these two is a waste.

Booker/Christian was decent and all. I feel bad for the Houston fans for not seeing Booker get a win again but I enjoy this feud and it's good that its not over yet.

La Resistance v RVD/Kane - Dupree and Grenier are too green to be OVW Tag Team Champions let alone RAW Champs. Kane - hey I still don't care. Monster or not, still the same wrestler.

Goldberg/Jericho - Good match but probably a little too much selling by Goldberg. Good work WWE, you've pretty much killed Goldberg judging by the crowd reaction in this match. Goldberg's a dissapointment? No, WWE is a dissapointment because they've done it before with guys with lesser charisma.

Flair/Michaels was a pretty darn good wrestling match. Shawn Michaels versus Randy Orton? I can dig that. It's Orton's chance because if you can't have a great match with Shawn at SummerSlam, you just don't have it.

Triple H vs Kevin Nash - It wasn't horrid but it there was barely any heat. Luckily they had all the gimmicks and weapons to cover up Nash's inability to do anything. Nash isn't over, can't cut a promo, and can't get it done in the ring. He deserved HHH kicking out of the Jacknife and getting Pedigree'd. The only problem is, I don't think Nash will settle into a nothing role like Steiner.

Redneck Triathalon - They could've made serious money with Eric Bischoff but they just hired him to embarass him on TV. If Bischoff wasn't such a snake, I might feel a bit sorry for him.

Overall, an OK show which would've been good but there was no show stealing match. That's the advantage the Smackdown crew has because they can just throw on a Cruiserweight match or two as filler instead of Rodney Mack, Chris Nowinski and La Resis - oh shit, they actually did put the belts on them.

HHH has taken all the fun out of it for me. Just because Michaels/Flair and Jericho/Goldberg were passable doesn't mean this is any kind of PPV that will turn things around. The WWE is not following the kind of storyline arch that reflects anywhere near real life, except a sad case of nepotism at the expense of the consumer. We know HHH is engaged to Stephanie, so he wins the HITC. He might job to Goldberg, but he'll get ten wins for that one and it doesn't look like the McMahon family is too enamoured of the big lug anyway. That was just Linda talking, but who knows how much her words will affect morale about Goldberg's drawing ability.

The WWE is stuck with an entrenched sycophant who's soon to be an heir to the company, a cantankerous former WCW star who is tanking horribly and needs to be meticulously booked otherwise he's dead weight, lots of desperation nostalgia booking (Hogan, Piper, Foley), and absolutely no forward direction or continuity in the major storylines.

WCW did have some passably good PPV's in their decline. Mostly because of the cruiserweights, Benoit, Jarrett and Booker T, but they were there.

I wonder if anybody who thinks this was a good PPV is also wondering why we couldn't watch Lesnar, Angle, Benoit or Guerrero/Tajiri. Anybody who was pleased with Bad Blood because it "wasn't that bad" should remember that there is a Stephanie/HHH reunion angle in the works. There's just no going back from the fact that he's engaged to Stephanie and will book himself to win the main event of WM XX. There's no turning back, no change of plans that could possibly stop it. The main event of WM XX should be Angle/Rock, but it won't be. It'll be somebody jobbing to HHH. Yes, you heard it here first as impossible as that sounds.

That is part of what ruined WCW. On the top, HHH will either win every match or his losses will be useless because we all know he will get back ten wins for every loss. I'm not talking about getting rewarded for paying your dues (why isn't Benoit a ten-time champion then?) I'm talking about making that "title" mean something by having another wrestler stake a long-term claim to it. This isn't Flair or Hogan in the 80's. We are in the 21st century. The title can't be seen as just HHH's title. The rules of making a title mean something have changed. Otherwise it's just a piece of tin on his shoulder. Who even cared tonight that Nash/HHH was for that particular belt? They had to bring in Foley to referee to develop some fan interest. I have good professional wrestling matches on other tapes, and dozens that were superior to the best matches tonight. “Surprisingly good” because of low expectations isn't good enough.

There is nobody on the RAW roster who HHH can't manipulate or control (i.e. Jericho, Christian, Booker T) into taking a secondary spot to all his main events. The remainder (Flair, Michaels, Nash) were all in his back pocket to begin with. This is personal politics getting in the way of the product. You may say it's happened before, and yes it has, but it's never been good. Let the HHH/WWE Doom Watch continue it's countdown.

I really enjoyed this show. Of course, I watched it at a bar, so I didn't pay, but I can't find anything I wasn't entertained by. I thought the last four matches (Booker/Christian, Coldbeer/Y2J, TheMan/HBK and Trips/BigDaddycool) were pretty darn good. I was surprised that Mick was reasonably detatched in the last.

My favorite was the Goldberg/Jericho match. Liked all of it. Y2J, as much as I ride him, can do a good match. And it was nice to see him take the spear.

Does anyone else think maybe Slick Ric's got a problem with the back of his head? That's the second time I have seem him bleed from there and both looked hardway.

In the end, I think we're going to remember the Hell In a Cell a little bit, because it was alright, but really what cements this PPV in history is Mae Young in a thong. She has now gone through a table, given birth to a hand, flashed her tits to a sold out arena, and been the subject of a pie eating contest. Good Lord, why do we watch this tripe?

Seriously, to whom did this sound like a good idea? I had my thumb on the button to switch to the NBA finals lest my wife enter the room when that Mae Young abomination was on the screen, because, after all, who would PAY to watch this garbage other than a mid-schooler or a PERVERT?

I love how if you make a "holding down" joke you get lambasted but this guy can conceivably tell people who claim they enjoyed something that they didn't, and alls well that ends well.

Jeez.

Anyway, I don't see how Triple H losing the title to Nash would have solved anything. The right guy won. Triple H is eventually going to be defeated. I don't think it will be a WCW situation, because Vince is a little smarter than those who ran WCW. When you get old and run down, Vince books you that way. Look at Hogan's title run. He didn't get one clean win, and wasn't made to look like he could hang with anyone, not even guys half his size. Once Trips gets so bad it can no longer be hidden, he'll be booked that way, Mr. Steph or not.

Besides, Steiner's flop was about as funny a thing as I've ever seen in my life. I literally haven't laughed like that in years. I'm not usually one to enjoy other people's mistakes, but God almighty, seeing he wasn't hurt made all that much sweeter. How can you say there was nothing CLASSIC on this show. Steiner just ripped Shockmaster's balls off.

It was ok. Which is not good. There was nothing here that made me want to watch Raw tomorrow night unless Foley shows up. They are still in HHH holding pattern and will not be going away from that course any time soon. Even Flair/Shawn was just ok where I thought it would be far and away match of the night.

It just seems that Vince doesn't listen to the fans anymore. I am not talking about the net fans, but the people in the audience. If you watch the PPV, you can see that the ending to their matches and the postion of their wrestlers on the card is wrong. Booker T should have won clean tonight if Goldberg was the only face to go over clean tonight. The crowd went dead after that match. If you can hear audiable "Y2J" chants since No Way Out then maybe you should turn him already. Also, if your new chosen face is getting you suck chants time to turn him heel. It also doesn't help he trashed talked with the fans after the match. And lastly, if the main eventers get one tenth the pop that the special guest refree gets then its time for some changes. Of course, they won't and this is why their last quarter sucked balls.

In the end, the first Raw PPV went like Raw in the last few years. It potiental to be good if not great, but HHH and friends have put everyone on the back burner. The writers also have to take the blame as the matches and fueds have been very formulatic. Its sad to think the production crew has been the only good thing ie the video packages. The show is going nowhere, but Smackdown has a great chance with Brock/Angle as its main event for Vengance and great mid card match ups like Benoit/Rhyno and Rey/Ultimato Dragon. Skies the limit for Smackdown as long as Vince's ego doesn't run rampant like it did for Wrestlemania.

So were they plants or not?

After the Cold Beer/Y2J match, Goldberg goes down there and yells at 'em (and their "I'm a Jericoholic" sign) face-to-face, straight outta the indys. A couple of fans congratulatorily-like slap ol' Bill on the arm, and he barks "HANDS OFF!"

Either Goldberg just took another shiznit on the fanbase, or those guys were the Worst. Dressed. Plants. EVER.

That's not true. Just the other day, my former business associate and I had a fight and, because I won, I get his wife.

Also, I'm sleeping with the manager's daughter, so I win Employee of the Month every week.

Oh, and 2 French guys got promoted over us because I accidentally punched another business associate in the face.

Now if the WWE would just run true-to-life storylines where over 1/3 of the matches end with a single punch, Christian forfeits the IC title because he can't afford to get gas to drive to the arena and Trish has to sit out for 3 months after her alcoholic husband breaks her arm by pushing her down the stairs. Reality is the future!
