I just saw an ad on UPN for Smackdown. So anyway, I guess they made it before "No Mercy" cause they tease stuff like "After No Mercy will Vince McMahon or Stephanie McMahon be out of a job? Who will be left standing, the vindictive father Vince McMahon or the woman who revolutionized sports entertainment Stephanie McMahon? Find out what happened to WWE after No Mercy only on WWE Smackdown!!"
-------- Wait a minute....when in the blue hell did Stephanie McMahon "revolutionize" sports entertainment?

Stuff like that just makes me roll my eyes. Even in the kayfabe world what exactly did she do that was "revolutionary". Loses a "Loser leaves the WWE FOREVER!" match to her "ex-husband" gets dragged out kicking and screaming. Just to come back a few months later coming back wearing a powersuit with a theme saying "I'm all grown up" to be appointed to a GM job by her daddy. What a trailblazer she is *rollseyes*
Almost as annoying as being portrayed as going over and beyond the call of duty and how much she endured and trying to milk a standing ovation after her 10 minute match of Vince gently placing his prop pipe on her chin. Riiight... While other women are taking spiked electric chairs and wrestling on badly damaged knees and shoulder. And are quickly brushed aside and undermined
In the kayfabed world, wasn't she responsible for the ECW invasion and a driving force behind the entire angle?
"So, here's what George W. Bush can't find: The White House leak, the weapons of mass destruction, Saddam Hussein, Osama Bin Laden, a connection between Saddam Hussein and Osama Bin Laden, the dude who mailed the anthrax and his ass with both hands and a flashlight." ---Tina Fey, Saturday Night Live
It's the old WCW audience that didn't crossover when WCW died. Add to that the other old-time wrestling fans that dropped off in the past 20 years. Throw in the current fanbase. And you've got yourself a redhot DVD.
