I think most everyone on this board is in agreement Booker should win the belt at Mania. But one problem remains, who will Hunter fued with? No matter what happens, he is still a big time player and important to the WWE. Also, getting new stars is always important too. So why not, tonight in Booker vs Steiner or say Goldust vs Orton, or any time Dust or Booker is in the ring, have Evolution run out (Randy walk out). For simplicity sake, say after Booker beats Steiner tonight, Evolution runs in, throws Booker over the top rope and destroys Steiner. Goldust runs in to try to help, but Evolution is on him too, beating him and Scott down. But Booker rolls in, sidekicks Bautista down and hits Orton with a chair, leaving it Booker and HHH in the ring.... Hunter goes apeshit when he sees its down to him and Booker mano a mano, runs the hell away, leaving Booker T and Goldust (and STeiner if he is there.....) to do a beatdown to Orton and Bautista as best they can based on their injuries. Next we see Bautista and Orton geting strechered out, as they yell at Hunter for ditching them when they always saved him, and Hunter telling them he never needed them. Now, a couple months down the road, Orton and Bautista can return looking for blood and take out Hunter for abadoning them and leaving them to the wolves. There.... a fued for months down the road set up that could elevate some new talent.

You don't get it boy, this isn't a mudhole... it's an operating table. And I'm the surgeon. Something tells me to stop with the leg. I don't listen to it. But where in the world is there in the world A man so extroardinaire?
The main problem is that these look like injuries that will have at least 3 months out of the ring time to recover (and they better both go to OVW after they recover to work off the rust; especially Orton who will have been out for all but 2 or 3 matches for close to a year). Since we've seen in the past that long term booking strategy is not a strength of RAW, its difficult to see them using this angle, and then remembering it after they reset everything a few months down the road.
Ole Anderson booking is a weapon of self inflicted mass destruction.

Not as important as he thinks. Booker's been the top ratings draw on Raw. Triple H actually ranks below Jericho.

Ya know, it would've been nice for them to have brought back Shamrock for the anniversary show, seeing as how he was the inaugural champion (well, first NWA Champion in the TNA era anyway). Is this is a one-shot and/or short-term deal?
