Another pretty good episode of Confidential this week.

I liked the interview with the Ortons. I wonder if Randy is going to get a push now after that piece on him and his family.

I was a little disappointed when they showed DX invading WCW but it was alright. That was the RAW when they and Nitro were in the same area almost.

I was glad to see the "crib" segment again with Al Snow. Snow has a lot of collectibles from comic books to Simpsons figures.

Yeah, I couldn't hep but laugh at the fact that Snow kept his Avatar mask in his sons room at the bottom of what looked like a pile of dirty clothes.

Also, I found it kind of interesting the WWE did choose their own footage as a turning point in WCW. Not bad, or anyhting, just interesting. Not many people saw that one coming.

I really dug this week's show:

You got to see some great footage of "Cowboy" Bob Orton, and his cast. The maniacal glee he showed as he put his forearm into his other fist to show it's real strength was great.

You got to see OVW's Davis "Arena"

You got to see one of the funniest and ballsiest things DX did. Ahhh, those were the days.

You got to see that Al Snow is as big a geek as all of us. Simpsons figures, Comic Book graphic novels, classic cars, etc., etc., etc.

Al Snow reads "Astro City"!!!!!!!!!!!

You got to see RVD's formative years.

Good stuff all around. And did I mention that Al Snow reads "Astro City"??

I wish they would have showed DX in Atlanta at CNN Center signing autographs and trying to get in to see Ted Turner. Then, as we all remember, they finally found the WCW offices on some remote Atlanta road and tried to get in. Funny funny stuff. At least its on the old DX VHS video I have.

Two cool things about last night:

1) That Al Snow's house is the shiznit; It was funny to see that Pierre was held on higher ground than his Avatar mask. It's also nice to see that some wrestlers have a good family life outside the fed... and in the future, more crib segments would be cool. That is, except Joanie Laurer's house.

2) Nostalgia with Ace and the cast. 1 1/2 years it took that injury to heal?

WHY did I have to miss RVD kissing Debiase's foot!? I'm mad at myself. I hope to find a tape of this show, now. As I don't think there'll be reruns.

Well, it's been years since Kurt (Busiek, that is) wrote an issue, due to health concerns.

This weeks confidential was very cool. I really liked the Dx invading WCW it was pretty funny.

The Orton family segment was ok it was sorta boring, although I did like seeing the Bob Orton clips.

My favorite segment orverall was the RVD segment it was interesting and cool.

The Trish segment was ok it was abit short though.

I really liked RVD's part. He really abused that lady teacher of his, funny shit. I can't believe that was him who kissed Dibiase's foot. I guess I would of done it for a hundred bucks too.

Pretty good episode. I kind of wanted to see Bob Orton Jr. with a cast on but him saying that it tooks years to heal was funny.
I didn't know that it was RVD that kissed DeBiase's foot. Damn Debiase was one of the best heels ever. Snow is a bigger geek than I thought he was and his house is cool. I really got a kick out of the Avator mask being in his sons dirty clothes pile.

OH my I am SO alone on this one, I totally rolled my eyes when I saw they are going to give DX credit for a reason of WCW downturn. I was never a huge fan of DX, and I didn't like them using them as the reason for the turnaround. I guess I couldn't go an entire week without being annoyed by Triple H on TV (liked him on Monday) =)

Al Snow house fits his personality really well. Since Confidental started this is the second "IN Your House" they did (Trish the other one) and they both been very cool.

All the other pieces were nice. The run of the mill making the ad with Trish. Trish looked lovely. RVD being RVD, liked seeing him with the thick eyeglasses frams (lol) and an interesting Orton family background.

Good show. DX as WCW's downfall was unexpected, but unoriginal, in my opinion.

Behind the Comercial with Trish. It's odd that she refered to herself in the third-person (like The Rock does) when it came to the comercial. Usualy when the do these things, the wrestler usualy says "In the comercial, I'm doing such-and such", but this time, Trish said "In the comercial, Trish is delevering Ice Cream".

Casa de Snow was awsome. Avatar's Mask, Pireir, and Head all in his house. But where's Pepper? Not that slab of meat Al ate, but the REAL dog!

Next week... We visit Casa de Booker... SUCKAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!

I didn't get that impression from that segment at all, actually. They were sort of pushing it as one of the starting points, a seminal moment so to speak, but not the end-all be-all. They actually alluded to some of the other problems during the segment- Kevin Nash in particular was making some rather pointedly anti-management comments. ("They couldn't even make a cup of coffee" and that sort of thing.)

I was, however, hoping that they'd have done a bit more of an overview of the change in momentum as a whole... but, I suppose they couldn't do that without showing some people that they'd probably rather not give any credit to right now.

And Al Snow is now, officially, the most muscular geek I've ever seen. I love it. I'd punch my best friend in the throat for some of the stuff he has. And, oddly enough, my best friend'd probably take it, gladly, just to be able to look at it. We're pretty sad. (:

It's cool to know that if I want to be like RVD I can start on a diving board.

They should have showed him as Rob Szatkowski-WWF jobber.
I have the best match ever on tape of Rob and some other jobber getting completely decimated by Sid on his way to Wrestlemania 8 from Wrestling Challenge(Gorilla and The Brain on commentary). Rob and the other jobber get thrown onto stretchers(inside of the ring to outside) and I think one goes for a ride on it. Hilarious.

I assumed Trish spoke about herself like that because in the commercial she is Trish the character not Trish the person.

1. I don't think "Trish Stratus" is her real name, which would explain for the third person reference.

2. At first I was PISSED when they showed the DX angle, but then I remembered how great the angle really was and forgave them.

3. Al Snow is a great guy. I have a video of the 1995 SMW Heel BBQ and Al is hillarious. Plus I'm also a pack rat, so I can see where he's coming from.

4. The Orton stuff was good I guess, but I wasn't really interested in Randy Orton. A whole segment devoted to Cowboy's career would have been much cooler.

5. The RVD segment was also my favorite because he really was just a normal guy. He didn't seem to play many sports. He wasn't that good in school and he didn't have a lot of friends. Plus he beat up his teacher. Very cool.

If you guys are interested, I write the Confidential review for The Smart Marks (link in sig.), so check it out if you get a chance.
