Looking at the matches for the UPN taped special tonite, it appears Christian and Jericho are teaming up in the 10 man tag match. Now, that's fine and everything, except, why would you have Jericho lay out Christian on RAW when you know they are teaming up on the taped show on Tuesday? If they are trying to make the RAW brand WCW v 2.0, they are doing a good job of following the confusing mid 90's WCW booking.



I want you to know, I agree with everything I've just said.

Well they're still TEAMING and all, being the tag champs and everything.

I don't see much of a problem with it...if the bookers can make Christian wear those hideous red long-johns, teaming with someone who hit him isn't much of a stretch.

I always thought his tights were more of a homage to Bret Hart...

I don't think they do, but I think they had to show Jericho as the guy who will do anything to get the title, includinge whacking his tag team partner.

Well, I feel you Redsoxnation. It does not make sense for Christian to agree to the 10 man tag blindly. What they need to do is tape an interview segment where Christian:

A: Mentions that while he doesn't care for Jericho, he does care about hurting one of the five competitors so bad that they can't compete in the EC match (including Jericho).

B: Makes up with Jericho somewhat begrudgingly (Jericho can either apologize or Christian can at least understand Jericho's reasoning).

If the WWE does nothing about this lapse in continuity, then that is not a good thing, it's a bad thing.

I'm not seeing a thing wrong with it. Jericho simply knocked Christian, who's pretty much his lackey at this point, back in line. He got across to Christian that he was the one that was going to win the title, not Christian.

This is more like Raven smacking Stevie around than anything.

Yeah, and it would be horrible if they put two people who hate each other and are actually facing each other on Sunday on the same team. It'd be like putting Triple H and Jericho together. Oh, wait...

Wasn't the 10-Man tag taped last week? If so, I doubt they even thought about Jericho whacking Christian with the chair yet.





If I was a action figure,this is what I'd look like.

I think that's kind of the point. They have these brilliant ideas like Jericho knocking Christian out with a chair, but they don't worry about how that's going to effect other stuff they have in the hopper.

I don't think it's THAT big a deal, but it's just one of those little things that shows the Raw writers just aren't paying attention to their own product.
