"John Heidenreich beat poor Stevie Richards. I say poor because Big John is Big Bad and Steven deserved better. The fans hated John because he stunk and when he messed up his finisher and looked like he killed Stevie, we got on him even worse."
"A note on Stevie Richards from Raw last night. When Heidenreich dropped him, he didn't really get him extended, and Stevie landed on his neck, rather than back. The ref immediately put up the X sign to the back and went to a quick finish. Trainer and Doctor came out, and were checking Stevie for a neck injury, including checking his ability to grip things with his hands. A stretcher (Real medics) came down, but, eventually they fitted Stevie with a Cervical Collar and helped him walk up the ramp....obviously upset and in pain."
So is he going to have to kill Stevie literally before anyone notices how much he sucks?

I guess that could explain why Stevie wasn't on RAW with Victoria.
Dude has had a horrible couple of weeks, lets hope he is ok.

Need I say more?"
To be somewhat fair, what someone in the crowd thinks people are chanting we should know to take with a grain of salt. And, the Super Secret X signal went out the window once Nash tried to walk two steps and everyone realized what the signal meant. And, if they were real medics and they were checking for a neck injury, they would have put him on the stretcher as precautionary/covering their ass from future lawsuits procedure.
(edited by redsoxnation on 25.11.03 1131) Why Pro Wrestling proves the INS cannot keep terrorists out of the United States: If a felon like Nathan Jones is allowed into the United States with no special skills (unless being totally inept in the ring counts, but I think there are enough totally inept people in the US to keep that skill from being unique or special), then how the hell can they justify keeping anyone else out?

I'm no EMT, so take this with a grain of salt, but...
I figure that they'd wait to put him on a stretcher until they were sure that they knew what they were dealing with (the last thing you want to do with a broken neck is start dragging people around) and, if necessary, put a brace/collar on before moving them. And by that time, they might've realized/been told by Stevie that it wasn't *that* severe, and that he could walk on his own.

The good wrestlers either get killed or push back and sat on. While the ones that need to be train or take time off to heal are in our faces each week. Is iot me or are we hitting that time of suckfest before the attuide era started.
Great Muta is a wrestling GOD!! praise the Great Muta.
Not that this has anything to do with the topic at hand, but has anyone else noticed that Heidenreich looks like a giant buttered turkey? I keep getting Seinfeld flashbacks of Kramer shaving with the butter...
I don't know about you, but I prefer my wrestlers to not look like cured meats, but to each their own I guess.
Ok, I'm done.

You know, it's Vince's money, and if he wants to sign a no-talent, no-charisma guy like Hnrnr, well, it's his decision. I'll just sit on my hands when he comes out. But once he starts hurting guys (especially loyalists like Stevie) I think there may be a problem.
John Heidenreich beat poor Stevie Richards. I say poor because Big John is Big Bad
Hey, I'm offended! You don't see me going around injuring Stevie Richards! Well, there was that one time I slammed Ian Rotten's hand in a car door, but he was trying to steal my Big Mac.
Let's put this in the plainest terms possible: Darryl Strawberry has no business instructing anybody about anything. He has never done a thing in his life to warrant a position of guidance. Not on the field. Not off the field.-- David Vescey, si.com
Well, whaddya know, another injury as a result of jobbing to members of the Hoss League. There is a reason why wrestlers train and work to make sure things like this do not happen, but apparently some big promoter thinks it's okay if you happen to be this tall and this big and... ah hell...
Makes me appreciate Shannon Moore a little more, having to take bumps on Smackdown two weeks in a row now by two green rookies.
To be fair, even with all the crap he takes on this board, I think Nathan Jones has really improved in his time away from Smackdown. Now, he's certainly no Kurt Angle, but I think he's coming along quite nicely. Even Matt Morgan isn't too sloppy, and Batista I think improves a little bit every time I see him. Hrnrnr, however, is just sloppy as all hell. Sloppy and boring. I think Stevie got lucky, because I think it's only a matter of time before he hurts somebody real bad.
My serious-serious question is this: What is Heidenreich's purpose?
I mean, why give him those few weeks of building up the "Little Johnny" storyline, along with his debut, only to put him on Heat to languish? What purpose does he serve? He should be putting someone over, or being put over himself.
From the matches I've seen, his ringwork is rather heelish (that is to say, unimpressive). I wouldn't mind seeing him as Matt Hardy's newest MFer... And since Little Johnny is a hand puppet, why not have him be the Littlest MFer?
Well, I'd hardly count exposed turnbuckles as a weapon, as it is simply part of the ring structure, so I'll go with the easy one, and say Jericho over Rocky at Royal Rumble. Then again, I also don't equate cheap heel tactics with screwjobs.
