The more I think about it, the more I see that Angle v Austin would be good for Wrestlemania, despite Jericho not being in it. It may be a reward for keeping the WWF afloat during the dark days of the Alliance. Angle = MAD MAD HEAT in Canada for the obvious reasons, plus the "What"s are still going against Angle.
"Nobody loves the custodian. I come and I sweep and vacuum for you. When you're in the mood to go to the bathroom, I even disinfect it for you! This is the thanks I get?!? All who defy me shall be dis-infected!"
They aughta get Jamie Sale and David Pelltier to wrestle those russian who got the gold medal instead of them in some kind of barbed wire/texas death match/hell in a cell/ with the gold medals on the line... I would pay to see that one... now that would be a main event for the ages.
Well, if the WWF had decided to just stick with the probable possibility of an NWO run-in, we'd have an interesting situation here. But since Steph is taking the role of Evil NWO Referee at the PPV, the deck is too far stacked against Trips for him to lose.
"Oh - oh! Well well well well! It's twenty-four hours after the Royal Rumble and GUESS who is still the Undisputed Champion of the World - ME! Yeah, and I tried to warn all of you - I tried to tell you I was not a joke. I tried to tell you to take me seriously, but what did you do, huh? What did you do? On Sunday, you invited all your little friends over to watch the Royal Rumble, you called up Frank and said, 'hey Frank, you wanna come watch the Rock kick Chris Jericho's ass?' And Frank said, Frank said 'oh sure, I wanna see the Rock win the Undisputed Championship and go all the way to WrestleMania.' I mean, it's a foregone conclusion, right? The Rock is gonna win! The Rock is gonna win! The Rock is going to win, EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU believed in your hearts that the Rock was going to win but GUESS WHAT HAPPENED. The Rock - The Rock - The Rock...LOST. CHRIS JERICHO - WON. And even if you don't like it, you have to appreciate and acknowledge all that I've accomplished, because everything that I've done is far too gigantic to be ignored!"

I'll wrestle with Jamie Sale any day of the week...
Q: If you could have interviewed Marvin Gaye, where would you have proposed to meet and what would you have asked him?
A: I would have met anywhere as long as it was before his father shot him. I would have asked him, "Hey, don't you think there's some chance that your father might shoot you? To death, I mean?"
Yeah, a main event without a McMahon in it (or somehow involved in it) is apparently too much to ask for. Last time that happened was WrestleMania 13-- when Undertaker defeated Sycho Sid for the WWF Title.
I think the possibility of the nWo interfering in the Angle-HHH match is actually much higher than most people seem to think. After all, Triple H has mad heat with Vince McMahon right now.
Myself, personally? I'd love No Way Out to end with Austin unconscious, being jumped by all three nWo members and having NWO spray-painted on his back.
Of course, I'm certainly not a particular fan of Austin.
“I didn't say it would be easy, Neo. I just said it would be the truth.”
I think we're being set up yet again by HHH doing a looks like a face and then turns set up. I say at the end of the match Steph ends up looking like she's just about to screw over HHH, most likely with the NWO at ringside by this point, and then turns and nails Angle, Steph and HHH hug, he goes NWO, and we get HHH vs. Austin at WM.
Oh, baby. A two-minute special I'd have ignored, but methinks I'll give this one a look. (And how freakin' lacking is American cruiserweight wrestling when the best matches are six-minute ones on Jakked?!)
