At the end of Confidential tonight, they teased the possibilty of signing Goldberg. Bischoff said he's be seeing "Bill" when they go to Sturgis together in August, and Okerlund pushed it even more. They even showed footage of him.
An excellent show overall. They spent a lot of time with McMahon and Bischoff discussing the Monday night wars.
For those who were worried about the handling of the Torrie bulimia story, it was done very well.
The Chris Nowinski piece came out as a total babyface story, which was pretty funny, but good since it would suck if this show were in kayfabe. I love this guy btw, I think he really "gets it" and will be a top heel if skill has anything to do with it.
gonna build a giant drill and bore straight into hell releasing ancient demons from their sleep-forever spell so they can walk upon the earth and get recituated and run the diet pill pyramid that MC Pee Pants has created
Confidential was good this week, with the interview of Eric Bischoff. I liked some of the clips they showed, (Bischoff making fun of WWE not being live.) Also they showed Bischoff auditcioning for some announcer's role about twelve years ago. He was awful.
I don't know about Goldberg going to WWE, though we all saw what happened to Hogan.
I also liked the Torrie interview, and the bit about Harvard Chris.
The interview with the Ortons was cut, though.
Next week, Mean Gene hinted that they would talk about "the fall of WCW," and the event that might have led to the end of WCW. I'm guessing Starcade 1997, or "The Fingerpoke of Doom."

I would suspect that, when the GM angle fails, Goldberg will be the next step to try and get fans to watch. I would prefer Scott Steiner, but he still can't seem to pass the WWF physical because of a problem in his foot.

I review Confidential for The Smart Marks and Lords of Pain. This week's show was one of the better ones. I was happy that they ditched the five minute diva segment at the end. Also, why has Velocity been going past 11:00 lately? Confidential is the better show, so why not end Velocity a few minutes early.
OH I FORGOT, the Batista stuff had a tinge of desperation to it, trying to have him do something spectacularly badass and then (finally) positioning him in opposition to Triple H. And tragically, still boos.
