Talk about some bad editing on Confidential... This weeks show is listed as new on Dish Network. The show starts out with Mene Gene talking about how Survivor Series is tomorrow and we'll get our first look at the Elimination Chamber. There's a backstage look at the Kurt Angle Classic which I'm pretty sure I remember seeing last year, but I'm not positive. But then there's a candid interview with Scott Steiner which can't possibly be from before Survivor Series, because he wasn't even signed with the WWE back then. I think it's pretty obvious that Confidential isn't edited by the same production staff that puts together their recap packages.
You know what? I knew that... I really did. In fact, that Survivor Series was the very first WWE PPV I'd seen live since.. the very first Survivor Series. Yet for some reason, I had it set in my head that Steiner appeared at Wrestlemania, which was the third WWE PPV in history that I've actually seen live. And I caught the end where Okerlund said the show was a repeat. So I blame Dish Network for the confusion.
It was all the same show, November 16, 2002 the Saturday before Survivor Series... Yup they had an interview with him before he actually debut at Survivor Series.
Didn't watch the show this week but I remember it and have the show on file(don't ask LoL)
-Steiner interview- Kinda funny looking back, how so he was looking forward to go against the only man that matters HHH. Few months later he and HHH had maybe the worst match of the year at Royal Rumble.
-Kurt with Amateur wrestlers- Kurt goes back to his roots, when he first entered the WWE and some of his peers called him a sellout. Damn him for trying to make Money! LoL. He'd like to see more amateur wrestlers come to the WWE (like Benjamin and Haas and Steiner, well maybe not Steiner anymore LoL)
-Bubba's diary- Highlight of the segment was Tommy Dreamer mastering the art of the crane game!. Shows Bubba giving hi-fives to the fans which is a ironic cause I've heard he's kind of a jerk.
-Survivor Series History- showing debuts of Angle, Rock and Undertaker. Plus infamous moments like Austin hit and run and of course our favorite HHH getting lifted in his car by a forklift... Oh yeah also some thing that happened in 1997 .
-Elimination chamber structure Hype- Which might have made a bit more sense to show this replay last week.
As a confidential fan this certainly would NOT be one of the shows I'd pick as a replay on a "Best Of"

I've met Bubba three times, and he was totally cool to me everytime. Remembered me too.
I once saw Bubba turn heel on a fan in a hotel. She asked him to sign something, he asked her name, was about to sign, then got distracted, then asked her name again, she said, "You don't remember? Weren' you paying attention?" and he refused to sign. She was probably somewhere in the range of 12-14. I got a picture with him and D-Von a couple of minutes later, so he was tweening.
These guys don't have to take lip from 13 yo girls.
As opposed to R. Kelly. (Rimshot) Thank you, I'll be here all week.
"When this bogus term alternative rock was being thrown at every '70s retro rehash folk group, we were challenging people to new sonic ideas. If some little snotty anarchist with an Apple Mac and an attitude thinks he invented dance music and the big rock group is coming into his territory, [that's] ridiculous." - Bono, 1997
Well folks, it's finally going to happen, Chris Benoit vs. CM Punk. This Sunday in my hometown of Houston, TX for Vengeance which I will be attending live. Meaning I get to see both Finlay/Benoit and CM Punk/Benoit within 6 months of each other.
