I would love to see Eugene and William Regal tag teaming for the strap at Bad Blood. I do think that putting Eugene in the tag division with a face Regal would keep him fresh and exicitng. It would also be a VERY strong tag team (if Regal is 100%).

Once again, Jericho isn't close to main eventing a PPV.

Jericho, as a face, is always close to main eventing a PPV. Give him ninety seconds with a microphone and he'll have the fans screaming for him to have a title shot.



So, Brain, what do you want to do tonight?

You know what Jericho really needs? A vacation. I'm totally serious. A few months off would freshen him up tremendously. I can't think of a single extended absense he's had since he arrived in '99.

You could probably apply that to half the roster.

I'd love to see the E get ballsy and turn La Rez face. Seriously. All they would have to do is show guts in the face of a team like Test & Albert reforming and demanding a title shot. I'm sure that if they toned down the anti-US stuff, they could get over as Canadians who have "seen the light."

When their gimmick is The Quebecers V2.1, there's not much chance of them being faces. Their entire gimmick is they're French, so to not be French (and thusly turning down the being snooty to and about Americans) would be flying in the face of all logic.

That just sounds like Character Development to me...

Seriously, you can't be ADVOCATING one-dimensional gimmicks, can you? You've gotta know that there isn't anymore mileage to be gotten out of the French gimmick, especially with a guy on Smackdown RUNNING IT INTO THE GROUND. This is why they transitioned into Quebecers in the first place (that and it's more accurate, at least as far as Grenier is concerned) - they had to know that anti-French resentment is many times more virulent than anti-Quebec hate. Plus, as many times a year as the WWE visits "Bizarro World," they had to expect a face response if they were pushing La Rez's new homeland. So we just saw La Resistance behaving in as un-heelish fashion as they have ever behaved (They were celebrating with the FANS, something that the WWE took pains to point out.) after winning the titles CLEAN (something they also have never done), and you are advocating that they fall back into a stagnant tag division with their stale gimmick, rather than attempt to bring about a tag team Renaissance through showing up next week saying "It's a New Day!"

And you do this, knowing at this point that your tag team alternatives are (1) Division-killer semi-main eventers who hold the belts only to fulfill a Company Domination storyline for their faction; (2) a makeshift team of faces with no history of tagging together; and (3) the only tag team more stale than they are, against whom they have Set Heat On Fire with their Interminable "Best of 8,397 Series." (And the Hardy Boyz, time-travelers from the year 1999.)

But maybe I'm just crazy...

Well, with the house shows post-Bad Blood advertising La Res v. Flair/Batista for the titles, you'd think that a La Res face turn would logically be in the works - otherwise, the fans are just gonna focus on Naitch and totally blow off the rest of the match. And I say, turn 'em - you need fresh blood in that tag division. (Which wouldn't be necessary if the Fed hadn't totally dropped the ball the way they did with Hurricane & Rosey...)

And don't get me started on Jericho. If he's still not main eventing by the end of the year, you may have to put a bomb watch on Stamford. ;)

If the WWF decided to use a Super Mario Brothers gimmick...

"Mah gawd, King! Garrison Cade just bounced a fireball toward Rene Dupree!"
"And look, Mark Jindrak just jumped on top of Conway's head! I think he's out cold, JR!"
"What're they up to now..where did that huge pipe come from?!"
"They're going down in the pipe! They're..they're gone!"

"Oh my god, JR. Cade just shrunk after he was hit by that chair!"
"Here comes RVD, King. What's that he has in that bag?"
"Are those Mushrooms, JR?"
"Cade's eating the Mushrooms. BAH GAWD, KING! Cade just grew twice his size!"

Can-Am Connection anyone? Rick Martel was pretty damn popular back in the day with Tom Zenk. When Zenk left the company (what happened to his website, btw?), Martel cut a promo on that big square block they had in arenas for Mene Gene to hold interviews on top of. He said something to the effect of, "The Can-Am Connection is over. The Am decided to leave, but guess what.. THE CAN IS STILL HERE!" And then he chose Chico Santana as his partner.

All it takes is for Rob Conway to denounce his ways and pledge allegiance to the United States of America. And Grenier's enough of a nobody right now that it shouldn't be too hard to turn crowds in his favour.. unless they notice his lack of ring skills!

What do people see in Dupree that they don't see in Grenier?
They are practically physically identical. There is no clear disparity in wrestling ability or mic skills. They are one and the same. I realize that Dupree has a pointy dick and a dance, but that's hardly the stuff of main event legend.

Dupree is nothing special (yet [maybe]) but Grenier is something awful. There's a pretty big disparity!

People talk about Dupree as having potential, but as far as I can see, he has the potential to be a star, not a fantastic wrestler. He has The Look and The Dance, but just like other people with "potential" (Cena, Orton) he is only average in the ring at the moment.

I think that if Dupree (or the others) make it big, it will be with the same average ring skills that they currently possess. Marketability is far more of a guarantee of success in the WWE than actual wrestling talent, and Dupree wouldn't necessarily have to improve his in ring ability to be hugely successful superstar.

I say this because I haven't really noticed anyone develop their ring skills in front of an audience every week. Most quality wrestlers have honed their skills away from television, either in wrestling schools or development camps like OVW.

Has there ever been a wrestler before who started off in the WWE with only potential and limited skills who has become better in front of our eyes? If there hasn't been a precedent, then I do not see Dupree, Orton or Cena capitalizing on their potential.

I'd go with HurriCrap vs. The Froggies with a title change myself. But I believe the Meltz reported that it was Flair/Batista, which makes no sense to me. If they had a brain and a half, give Flair the night off, Edge vs. Dave Batista, or Flair.

ALSO, WHATEVER tag tandem they go with at the PPV, howabout starting a little storyline tonight on RAW? Wouldn't help (buyrate), but it wouldn't hurt either.

Then break up La Rez because Rob Conway isn't FRENCH. Is he Canadian... NO. So does it make ANY sense. NO. I like Ironman Rob Conway myself.

Hurricane and Rosey deserve the tag title run, IMO. It can also bring some importance to the B show (Heat, Velocity, wherever they go) with championship matches.

Why can't they get a damn tag team division together? What's so hard about that? Why is the WWEEEE retarded?

I'm thinking Flair, Edge, & Batista won't get on the card. I figure that Hunter/Michaels will go a while (30-45 minutes), which means they could leave it as a 6 or 7 match card.

      If they plan to turn La Resistance face, the last person they should throw at them immediately is Flair. The crowd would gravitate towards Flair immediately, and the face turn will flop.

They said tonight that Benoit is pulling double duty with Edge against The French Connection. Could be worse, I guess.

Just to put my two cents into the mix, for what its worth, I think you should give the Bashams a chance. They were good workers in OVW and have the potential to be a great tag team.
