I heard on Live Audio Wrestling today that Heat (which is taped before Smackdown) will be focussed on the cruiserweights. This could be a good idea ... I've always thought that Heat could use a belt to build around week after week, rather than random mid-card matches. This is just a rumor of course.

It's a good idea, if they really intend to follow through with it. I'd rather see the cruisers on Raw and Smackdown, but if this is it... It's better than the nothing we've been getting so far. It'd be great to see Tajiri go against someone besides Test!



There are no facts-only observational postulates in an endlessly regenerative hodgepodge of predictions. Consensus reality requires a fixed frame of reference. In a multilevel, infinite universe, there can be no fixity; thus, no absolute consensus reality. In a relativistic universe, it appears impossible to test the reliability of any expert by requiring him to agree with another expert. Both can be correct, each in his own inertial system.

The Heat matches and segments are too short to build a CW division. If they cut down all the stupid recaps and backstage segments and allowed the CW longer time for matches it could work. But does anyone really think the WWF would do this?

If Heat is taped before Smackdown, as it usually is, then it would be a great idea to focus Heat around the cruiserweight division. It would definitely be a good idea to re-introduce some of the talent, such as Mark Henry and Billy Kidman, plus also give ring time to Maven, because whether you like the Maven experiment or not, the WWF needs to do all in its power to milk the TE cash cow now because by the end of this second set, I honestly can't see a TE 3 in the near horizon.

This doesn't exactly fit in this thread, but could Maven be a potential crusierweight? He looks small and agile enough to contend.

That'd pretty much kill his career, wouldn't it? I mean, nobody has ever ever benefitted from being the light-heavyweight champion in the WWF. Hell, look what happened to Jerry Lynn, or Tajiri.

But is that the wrestler's fault for not being interesting enough to deserve air time, or the fed's fault for not having enough faith in the wrestlers?

Or nobody's fault, just the reality that a lightheavyweight title contender going for world heavyweight gold stretches the limits of disbelief.

Chris Jericho came to the WWF because he carried the cruiserweight label in WCW and couldn't shake it. I'm sure there are other examples, but I'm drawing blanks right now.

edit: remember, there is a big difference between being a cruiserweight and actually being recognized as a cruiserweight by the WWF.

If that's the case, they better damn well start showing Heat over here in the UK. Apparently, it's supposed to be on MTVUK at seven on Sundays, but I haven't seen it. Anybody help with that?

There was a rumour that Channel 5 was going to get it, Oldschool... I sure hope somebody over here buys it anyhow. .

edit: again with the spelling problem .

In terms of cruisers going up against the heavyweights...remember a match on RAW a few years back when HHH (Heavyweight Champ) took on TAKA (Light Heavyweight Champ)? They let TAKA have some offense, even a near fall or two, and people were buying that TAKA might win. It was a good match too, if I remember.

Of course, there was also Rey Mysterio, Jr "Giant Killer" in WCW.

I wish they hadn't dropped the Light Heavyweight title...but I'd like it even more if they actually TAKE DOWN the graphic for it on the web sites if they are only going to recognize the cruiser belt.

Quick aside: think they'll get around to taking the WCW off the cruiserweight belt anytime soon?

The TAKA/Triple H match is more a tribute to Triple H's ability to make the crowd want him to and believe he will lose.

And TAKA wasn't Light Heavyweight Champion at that point. He was just a joke.

I really like the idea. With the rosters as large as they were there is no reason to fill the shows with jobber matches. You could do some small storylines that lead up to the opening match on the PPV's.

It would certainly make the shows worth watching.

The tortoise lays on its back, its belly baking in the hot sun, beating its legs trying to turn itself over. But it can't. Not without your help. But you're not helping.

The WWF must be listening to you. wwfsuperstars.com shows the "WWF Cruiserweight Champion" Tajiri, and does not show the Light Heavyweight Champion X-Pac, like it has for like the past year. But I see what you mean. The graphic for the belt clearly says "ght Hea" on it.
