Positives: The Piece on Kurt Angle, which was a very good segment.

Stacy in the shower.

The return of From The Vault.


Goldberg segments.

Torrie segment.

Overall, a decent Confidential. Nothing announced for next week.

After hearing so many things about the neck surgeries Austin, Lita, Edge, and others have been through, and hearing about and seeing the hard neck braces, then seeing Angle awake just after his surgery and he's sitting in bed with NO neck brace and moving his head around normally, that was almost kind of freaky. It really drove the point home of how different this procedure is.

I didn't mind the Goldberg segments because they did what they needed to do...wrapped up a basic history on where he came from and how he was marketed in WCW. It told me more about Goldberg than I already knew, and I didn't know much.

How bizarre was it to hear Vince calling the Snuka/Backlund match, alone, with every bit of commentary focused on the match at hand.

The extended "APA/Military" segment was nice. I'll be happy to see them back on RAW (actual organized tag teams again? Whoda thunk.)

some things are classic. some things are just old.

If they keep the Vault segments as a weekly feature (and can sprinkle in some old NWA footage along the way), I'll watch. Nice to hear Vince call it the World Wrestling Federation Title on a few occassions. Of course, it would have been funny if the Snuka/Backlund match was a year earlier, and Vince calling it the World Wide Wrestling Federation Title. But Vince calling Backlund the greatest World Wrestling Federation champion of all time could cause trouble. Someone is really going to complain about Confidential now.
Skipped the segments with the refugee from WCW, as he has nothing of interest to say.
Weird how even drugged out after surgery, Angle is better on the mic than 95% of the roster. Of course, seeing the doctor explaining the surgery, it sounded a little Dr. Nick Riveira-ish. Did not really need to see the actually surgery though. And, Angle slipped a little kayfabe into the explanation for the injury by stating that it was a bump in the Lesnar match that was the final straw that caused the surgery.

There is only one man left to save Vince McMahon and the WWF/E. One man who will provide weekly Hogan/Andre Main Event ratings for RAW. Baghdad Bob is your salvation Vince.

Did you notice that Dreamer said the match between Backlund and Snuka was for the WWE title?

Should the stupid lawsuit really involve them re-writing history? I mean, isn't history written by the Winners, not the losers?

The first Goldberg segment did more to explain the Goldberg vs. Rock storyline better than anything on Raw. I mean, we saw Goldberg go right after the Rock when he first showed up, we never found out just why it was he specifically targeted The Rock. It wasn't until last night's Confidential when we found out that it was because Goldberg is the only guy whom the Rock hasn't beaten yet. Sure, we all surmised that, but it was a concept that wasn't explicitly incorporated into the Raw storylines. Unless it was and I missed it.

I really enjoyed the Vault segment. I love watching old stuff. Nice touch by Dreamer when he made a point to mention that this match was actually the first time Snuka went to the top of the cage, not the famous IC Title match against Muraco. I agree that I'd like to see some old NWA/WCW stuff, as I missed out on a lot of that the first time around.

I could have done without the Torrie segment, again.

I'm absolutely gutted that I missed Stacy in the shower, because we don't get Confidential in the UK. So if anyone at Sky is reading this, sort it out!

I was annoyed by the Goldberg segments, because for the most part, Confidential has been a "spin-free zone". People are real, not cartoony and gimmicked like the roles they play.
The Goldberg piece seemed like something that belonged as a promo on Raw instead.

Oh, and the Stacy in the shower thing wouldn't have made it anyway, reindeer. It was part of her hosting "Slammin' Saturday Night" on the new TNN, and wasn't actually part of Confidential.

Dreamer showed his real love for the business once again.

NOTE: The above post makes no sense. We apologize for the inconvenience.

If she leaves him, I imagine they'd bring her back, if for no other reason than spite. Otherwise, I can't see her showing up for RAW anytime soon...
