I think David Flair was only on Smackdown to further fuel the hot flames of the Flair-Undertaker fued. What better way to rile Ric up more than by destroying his son AGAIN in front of thousands of people?
In any case, Smackdown! was a lot better than RAW. The matches were better overall. OK, I didn't really understand why MAVEN got the belt in the hardcore match, but the other matches were acceptable. The promos were better overall as well. The Rock-Hogan one was perfect to be "the facedown" that'll be in all of the clips before the match. HHH-Jericho was also pretty intense and further pushed the MATCH and the CHAMPIONSHIP to be the focus (none of that dogshit...uh...shit.) of the match. OK, the last promo didn't really need to be 15 minutes long, but it definately needed Jericho working some more on HHH's legs.
I do have one complaint that sticks out. I wish Christian or DDP would have gotten some TV time to further expand on their matchup at Wrestlemania. I mean, DDP got punked out on RAW! He should be talking about how him beating the hell out of Christian would be a good thing or something!
...Some fear the Pink... ...But many fear....THE MOUNTIE! (He's handsome, he's brave, and he's strong, you know)
One last question: Has anyone noticed there's something really weird about Hogan's stomach? It's totally flat and stretched at an unnatural 45-degree angle from navel to breastbone. Plus there's no jiggly fat, yet no muscle definition either. Freakiest thing I've ever seen.
That, my friend, is called 'sucking in the gut.' It'll be interesting to see if Hogan can keep it up for his whole match on Sunday.
They had better be setting Maven up for a heel turn on Snow, (or maybe vice-versa) or that match would be totally pointless.
I doubt Vince would use Japanese footage, because in his mind Japanese wrestling does not exist. Memphis is probably owned by Lawler or Jarrett, so depending on which one would dictate the probability of Vince purchasing the footage.
