"At one point, Backlash was supposed to be a double-main event of the New World Order (Hall, X-Pac, and Nash) versus The Rock, Steve Austin, and Hulk Hogan, while Triple H was supposed to take on Hulk Hogan. (Meltzer, 2002) Obviously that has changed, thanks to the injury of Kevin Nash, Rock taking time off, and lack of reaction to Triple H vs. the Undertaker."
Hopefully they were thinking about nWo Vs. Rock, Austin and Kane, because otherwise it would mean that the Hulkster wrestles 2 matches on 1 PPV!
Would anyone really want to see the orange gobblin wrestle twice in 1 night?!
did you see their Smackdown spoilers? In the middle of one promo, it just says "LordsofPain" and the end has a link to jasonx.com. My favorite, though, is "When copying and pasting this news please have the decency to credit the Wrestling Observer newsletter and Mr. Tito"
Just saw a commercial for the SmackDown taping in Hampton on 12/19 (broadcast 12/22), and they announced the main event to be Batista, The Undertaker and Kane vs. King Booker, Mr. Kennedy and MVP. We'll see if that turns out to be true or not, of course.
