BucsFan: And exactly when has the WWF let small things like plot holes stop them if they get an idea in their head? Besides, IIRC, the moment they highlight takes place in the ring right after Jericho has pushed him towards the outside.
Plot holes. I can't remember any real continuity the WWF has used in the last year or 2 myself. But definately a good point though

Hey HHH can even start saying that the Walls of Jericho made it worse or did the real damage. Even though HHH was visibly limping outside the ring. HHH likes playing the heel better, but I think it is time for a change. I think it would've made more sense for him to turn face 7 months ago, because it was stupid to team him with Austin. Anyway WWF always screws up whatever long term booking or storylines they have with all the constant turning of the wrestlers. Does the Rock even care that Rikishi at one point gave him the stinkface? If my cousin ever gave me the stinkface I'd probably strangle him with a swimming noodle until he turns blue, and never speak to him again. Although that may sound like a bit much.

Well, it was mentioned extensively when Flair debuted as to the reason why he was there. Shane and Steph *did* mention the whole selling their stocks dealy back when they were pushing Freddie Blassie off a cliff, in front of a giraffe, or some other nepharious deed.
Of course, the whole thing made close to no sense, and did little more than add the word "consortium" to the ever-expanding Wrestling Fan's Vocabulary.
I think the announce team could probably play the "Jericho snapped my quad" angle up to a fairly high level of visibilty even if they only trot it out as HH makes his entrance. An entrance that IMHO should take place in the middle of Jericho beating down a major face (Austin, Rock, whoever) after cheating to get the advantage. Picture Jericho standing over a fallen Hero in the one-foot pin of ultimate dickishness when Motorhead hit and HH comes down to wreak his revenge on Jericho while setting the stage for his own tweener turn. Ah the possibilties are so rich.
Also on the Bloodbath DVD, Bruno Sammartino beat Ivan Koloff the same way: by beating the hell out of him enough to simply walk out the door. The full match is there, as well as the full version of Backlund-Patterson.
