Nice to see London with a belt...now if only they could figure out what to do with the Dudleyz.

My bad... now that you mentioned it, I do remember the difference between the two now. Bruce is the fat guy I've seen on Confidential some, while Tom is the former wrestler.

Another way to remember them is that Bruce was the former Brother Love, and Tom was the former BodyDonna/Heavenly Body.

Speaking of the Heavenly Bodies...whatever happened to Jimmy Del Ray? Sorry to change the subject...

Well yeah, the casual fans were asking “Who's Kidman's partner?” Because Paul London never wins, that's why. It's become a bit of a recurring joke around The W.

In any case... this is a tremendous upset, right up there with Prince Iaukea defeating Steven Regal for the WCW World Television Title in '97, Rey Mysterio Jr. defeating Kevin Nash in '99, Eddie Guerrero defeating Brock Lesnar for the WWE Championship, and Shelton Benjamin pinning Triple H. I mean granted, there weren't exactly very many good tag-teams (especially face tag-teams) for the Dudleyz to drop the belts to. But Kidman and London aren't exactly the first two guys who come to mind when you think of tag-team champions.

Not that that's a bad thing! I'm curious to see if this will breathe new life into SD!'s tag-team division.

By the way-- I'm too lazy to check (I assume someone around here's anal-retentive enough to look this up, though), but I'm pretty sure that Kidman and London are officially the smallest men's tag-team champions in WWE history. In terms of overall weight, that is. I know that in early '02, the announcers were putting over Tazz and Spike Dudley as having that distinction (whether it was true or not, I don't know), but I'd think that Kidman and London are close to that, right?

Then again, Spike Dudley's 150 pounds soaking wet, so that might throw off my calculations a little bit. Someone with more time on their hands than I have will undoubtedly be able to tell us for sure.

I agree with Eke about breathing this hopefully breathing life into the tag division. There are so many teams that are continually jobbed out (Akio & Sakoda, FBI, Bashams, etc.) With what looks like a potential Dudleys face turn, all the afformentioned teams could be great heel tag teams, especially the FBI, with their classic big guy/little guy combo.

Why not give the Bashams to Teddy Long? He could have his own little stable of the Bashams and Jindrak. Akio & Sakoda? That's easy ... Kenzo.

If Bruce Pritchard is all about the throwback gimmicks & classic wrestling, he needs to think about putting people in stable.

They've been wrestling as faces lately on Velocity, and have been getting decent face pops, so if they get any kind of push, it'll likely be as faces.

Give Dawn Maire to valet for one of the teams or give her taggy team and solo man and make her have a stable (no horse face jokes). Maybe have a Sable stable to. It'd give those Divas something to do than lay down for Torrie W and help the male stars get over and or heels heat.

Dawn Marie should be paired up with Rene Dupree ... he just needs that little extra something to help him get over a bit more.

Well, there's been one vote for London, and one for Shannon Moore. Personally, I'm pretty confident that it was Danny Basham. He's the only guy on SD! with quite that combination of short-but-broad-shouldered.

When they did the switch I thought for a millisecond that Luchador Numero Dos was Doug and that they were going to turn the Bashams face, as Eddie's lying-cheating-and-stealing allies, but then I realized that Dos was Eddie, and that therefore Uno would remain unidentified.

I enjoyed this appearance of El Fake Luchador a lot more than the first one--it was fun--but does anyone else find making a supposed Mexican Champion a jobber vaguely disrespectful? I wish they'd just use the old "Conquistador" gimmick instead. Or at least make it clear that this is just some guy that Bradshaw hired to put a mask on and pretend to be a champion just to make himself look good.

A lot of people have said that they found Suzuki's promo amusing. And it was, but... While I love the idea of a heel who wants the fans to love him, isn't that JBL's schtick? It's kind of like a few weeks ago when they were trying to get four different guys over as monster heels with squash matches... Fine idea in theory, but it needs to be unique.

After watching, Shannon Moore sounds correct. Body-wise, it looked pretty close to him. He was too short to be Danny Basham.

You don't think that was obvious enough? JBL didn't even make up a company he supposedly worked for, he was just "Champion of Mexico". If that's not blatantly bogus I don't know what is.
