As much as Raw has been so-so to crappy so far tonight, I'll give credit where credit is due: the "F-View TV" idea of Bischoff hiding hidden cameras backstage so we can see wrestlers plotting behind the scenes is rather smart. Now we don't have to moan as HHH and Flair, or someone else, scheme backstage right in front of a camera with the tally light on. It adds realism.
Now we just have to solve that age old problem of wrestlers not watching the monitors and learning of the evil plans hatched against them, but then if that happened CRZ wouldn't ever be able to call someone smart.
Is it just me, or was tonight's Raw totally filled with gimmicks? F-View TV. RNN. Promos for Steiner and Batista. Lotsa wacky matches. It was different somehow -- like watching a souped-up Excess. (Note that I didn't say "better.")
Rip says death is too good for you. Rip says the worms are too good for you. Rip says the maggots would choke on your rotting flesh.
Could it be Steve "Double Bird" Austin? Probably not, since he was never on Smackdown and therefore couldn't be traded from the show. But then again, it's not like WWE hasn't created larger logic gaps. The first thing I thought was Faarooq, which would be the worst trade ever.

"Booker T, I know you don't want me; because it's obvious I beat your ass so bad you forgot where the barbershop was!" -- Scott Steiner
It said, right at the top of the screen during those segments, "F-View". I think you are supposed to say it "FU" like Bischoff said it. I was trying to come up with a wrestler who had a name starting with F until Bischoff said it was him.

I still say he said FUTV, not F-View TV. WWE.com is saying F-View as well but I believe they also changed from Katie Fick to Katie Vick when that angle started.
He said that if someone had a problem with it, that's why he named it FUTV. As in, Fuck You TV.
But you're wrong.
Caped Boy: Excuse me, ladies. You may remember me as the guy who came to dinner a few weeks ago with underwear on my head. My name is Keith Stat from Milbourne, New Jersey. State bird, the mosquito. And as you may have heard I am recently a crowned class B dungeon-master. So if any of you would like to play D&D today, please speak now or forever hold your peace. [He chuckles, and there is an awkward silence at the table.] Caped Boy: Anyone? Alexa! [Alexa gives him a withering glare.] Caped Boy: Maybe you would like to join in? We do need a druid, and you have definitely cast a level 5 charm spell on me. Alexa: In your dreams, douche-bag! Caped Boy: Douche-bags are hygienic products, I take that as a compliment. Thank you. [Keith walks off] Alexa: Ewww!
Considering that Raw doesn't come on at 7, I very much doubt that they'll mention a rerun of a show he was on years ago. Especially since it might remind people of how much he sucks now. I think I saw another TNN/wrestling connection today.
