Have you forgotten about Bradshaw already? JR would not be happy at you overlooking such a hoss.
Actually, I think they are also counting on Flair to do some of the face lifting, or at least that's what I thought before Austin planted him with the stunner. Now I'm not sure if Flair is going to become the proxy Vince for Raw and become a maniacal bastard with a healthy dose of lechery (paddle on a pole?) thrown in just to complete the effect.

Eh, I doubt it. I really can't see them turning Flair for no reason other than to have an evil owner. Maybe we'll get a Flair/Austin match at Backlash, a "respect" kinda deal where Flair can finally pass the torch.
Shea, you have a point... I mean, running in from the crowd while wearing tights is about as bush-league as you can get. Honestly, the sheer evil action of Eddy and Brock's run-ins overshadowed the minor detail slightly, but they really should pay attention to stuff like this. Also, something I just thought of: Anyone else get a little worried when Eddy went for the Frog Splash. Every time I see him do it now, I flash back to the time he dislocated the elbow. That was just UGLY!
"I hate motherfuckers claimin' that they foldin bank But steady talkin shit in the holding tank First you wanna step to me Now your ass screamin for the deputy They send you to Charlie-Baker-Denver row Now they runnin up in ya slow You're gone, used to be the Don Juan Now your name is just 'Twan Switch it, snap it, rollin your eyes and neck You better run a check..."

Speaking for Brock, it made sense for him to be in his wrestling gear because it certainly helped get across that he is such a freaking monster. As for Eddy, I've no idea why he wasn't in street clothes. It would have made much more sense for him to be, unless it comes out later that he was "dispatched" by someone.
I realize that WWA has done a bang-up job of sabotaging themselves, but...
Eddie Guerrero is (was?) the WWA World Cruiserweight Champion. Combine this signing with the signing of Hall, Nash, Mysterio, Hennig and Hogan, and you have to ask yourself something...
Is Vince still trying to weed out any potential upstart promotion before they can get anywhere close to being able to challenge him? I realize that WWA and the XWF are fucking themselves by not getting many of their guys even under contract, but a lot of the recent returnees to the WWF have been from one of those two promotions.
“You see, this business is filled to the brim with unrealistic motherfuckers. Motherfuckers who thought their ass would age like wine. If you mean it turns to vinegar, it does. If you mean it gets better with age, it don't.”
Coach and Michael Cole said on Heat that this year's Rumble will have 1 minute intervals. This was done before in 95 when Vince called it "the fastest-paced Rumble ever". This change pissed off a lot of people and hasn't been used since.
