I know most people on this board think that bringing up old storylines is not what the WWE is all about but why do they keep bringing up this immunity thing???? Is that the only way to get Test over..."Well he can be a jerk cuz he can't be fired." I don't get it...sounds silly to me.
"Big Daddy Cool, ha, more like BIG DADDY BITCH."
"Oh my gosh...it can't be...Goldberg...is...NEW BLOOD!"
I think it could bea really good angle, except anything that could ever get you fired-such as hitting your boss with weapons and a finishing maneuver, beating on refs, refusing to show up for TV shows, or just being an asshole to coworkers has already been done by everybody, and with no repricussions.
I think the Test immunity angle could be a real trump card the Fed could use if they really really want to get a title from Smackdown to Raw or vise-versa, you could have Test go over to Raw to pick up some chicks and gets into an argument with a Raw champion and beats him. Or even better a champion Test goes to Raw (same reason, plus he thinks he can't get in trouble or fired) and loses the title to a Raw guy and has to go back to Smackdown and explain why the show has one less title... With the stipulation Vince and Flair gave each other for not having wrestlers invade there show, Test might think he's above that, "hell I can't get fired"
Something I totally want see is Test winning the tag titles with a smackdown partenr, then going alone to Raw (for whatever reason)get in an argument with a tag-team there, they challenge him, Test says sure, THey say "lets make it interesting, why don't you find a partner and make it for the tag titles". Test has a huge ego he said "I'm always the best thing about my team on Smackdown or here, I'll find anyone and beat you guys"... Test goes out, finds an old friend whose on the Raw roster goes against the Raw tag team and loses
Then the next Smackdown Test could be backstage trying to explain to his Smackdown partner why he has to Fed-Ex his title over to the Raw brand by Monday.
I think it's something you could get away with, and the immunity reason makes it a decent enough reason for a guy to think he could be on both shows. BUT the thing is it has to be a ONE TIME ONLY thing. We do not need Test on both shows. Test does it once, gets chewed out, doesn't do it again. But you do have a decent reason why a title jumped shows.
I don't get it, everyone loves rats, but they don't want to drink the rats milk?
Why is an angle that potentially could last an entire year bring back old stories? Everybody here is a sucker for continuity and this is the WWE's chance to show that continuity. I cannot believe they don't do more with it than have him just beat up a ref every now and then..
Net Hack Slasher, those are some cool ideas. Wish the WWE would pick up on that. The immunity has great potential, wether you use it for cross branching or anything else.

Ok, someone mentioned the Hardcore Title, so here goes. Test runs in and gets the HC title and does so with his immunity clause. Word, it works. Flair is so pissed that a McMahon worker (anyone catch that they still hated each other @ Judgment day?) got one of his titles, so then fine, He gives Test a guantlet match against, oh say the nWo. They need to be the beat down squad anyways. Or maybe against this new Four Horseman (hey, who's gonna be the moron in this incarnation??? Before it was Luger, then it was McMichael...I vote that Planet Stasiak gets that spot). Whatever. Test can then say "Hey man, fuck that, I'm leaving" and he could piss off Flair even more so. Same thing when McMahon tries to punish him on Smackdown with a match against, Angle, Christian and Jericho. He can just keep blowing them off, until his year is up, and he gets the assbeating of a lifetime by both sides at some pay per view. It'd at least give Test an interesting feud, which he really should have had when Triple H stole Steph, but we all know Triple H would only put over Steph so that never happened.
Benoit's a bad example... Think of this: on Smackdown, Steven Richards could be eating a taco or something on a streetcorner, and he could be jumped and pinned by a Smackdown guy for the title. RAW GUYS ARE NOT ALLOWED AT THE SMACKDOWN ARENA (i.e.: AT Smackdown)...and they can only be on SmackDown under special circumanstances...they won't just walk out ala BikerTaker.
And I'd like to see Test just keep showing up to both shows ("I get paid more this way") and attack people for no reason other than he's bored. OR...Test could be a kind of bounty hunter guy...sorta like the APA, 'cept he can do ANYTHING, ANYWHERE, ANYTIME.
I was late tonight getting to watch the show, so I didn't have as much time to write as usual. I still put out a lot of words, though, so I can't really call this an abbreviated recap. Smackdown is now!
