I've just seen a commercial for the No Way Out PPV. This PPV is definetly geared towards a Latino audience. The commerical plays Mysterio's "Crossing Borders" and shows him and Gurrero dancing and driving in lowriders. It also says and heres the spoiler....
"Eddie Gurrero takes on Brock Lesnar and in his corner will be the charismatic Mexican boxer"...I didnt catch his name though. Some Mexican boxer will be in his corner, possible Prince? When I heard this I immediatly had flashbacks of Chuck Norris enforcing a Taker match at one PPV. Does WWE feel that Gurrero wont draw enough that he needs to have a boxer in his corner? And so far this PPV looks to revolve aorund Mysterio and Gurrero. Any thoughts on this?

No one mentioned about Eddie having a famous boxer in his corner. This is new EXCLUSIVE news brought to you by T.i.O! You should be thanking me. The point of this post and the thing that pisses me off is that Vince feels that Gurrero cant draw alone.

This news is SO exclusive it was on other sites this morning.
WWE Championship Brock Lesnar (c) vs. Eddie Guerrero
United States Championship The Big Show (c) vs. John Cena
Kurt Angle vs. Goldberg???
Hardcore Holly vs. Matt Morgan
WWE Cruiserweight Championship Rey Mysterio (c) vs. Chavo Guerrero
Billy Gunn vs. Rhyno
WWE Tag Team Championship The Basham Brothers (c) vs. Rikishi and Scotty 2 Hotty
'Battle of the Mobs' Tajiri's Yakuza vs. Nunzio's FBI???
Really not a lot of matches that can be booked. Without Benoit Smackdown is fcuked really. If Goldberg doesn't trade who will Angle face - A-Train. Also with Eddie challenging for the title that makes the mid-card stuck without Benoit/Guerrero to face guys like Holly, Rhyno, Train who couldn't challenge Angle believably. Also Billy Gunn needs a return match with a strong heel - Rhyno was all I could think.

Never heard of the guy, although admittedly I'm not a big fan of boxing.
Calling Jorge Paez a "boxing legend" would be like saying "all-time great NFL QB Kordell Stewart." Paez had a nice heyday back in the early/mid '90s but has done NOTHING noteworthy of late except to get semi-implicated in the Bob Arum/Top Rank match fixing investigation.
(I say semi-implicated because I've never seen his name directly mentioned, but after Mosely/De La Hoya II was mentioned many boxing commetators indicated Paez fights in Mexico were the real target of the probe and that "everyone knows some Paez fights were suspicious.")

I enjoyed the show, as always, but was it just me or did the crowd seem incredibly dead all night? I mean freaking Mick Foley, the god who walks among men comes back and it still seemed a little underwhelming.
