A decent little PPV, IMO, better than most expected.
The opening tag was okay, especially Rey's spots. Not quite ***-good, but good enough.
Dawn v.s Torrie was meaningless, except for the partial nudity.
Ah, I don't think anyone guessed Scotty as Mordecai's opponent. I'm surprised the very negative response he's getting from the 'net. I was also hoping for a very elaborate entrance, complete with druids.
Chavo Classic IS classic!
The tag match was okay, but the HeatSuckers should not be tagging for the titles. Would've liked to have seen Kidman/London.
Thank GOD Chavo won. That's all I've gotta say about that.
Cena v.s Dupree seemed a LOT longer than 10 minutes. They're just not quite ready yet.
'Taker/Book was fine, but I would've rather have seen Book go over. Cole was really hammering home that 'taker is only a "special attraction."
The ME was better than expected, and Guerrero's bleeding was bordering on scary. Surprised with the result, too.
Overall, not worth $35, but it would be a good episode of Smackdown.
As far as the JBL feud continuing -- I enjoyed yesterday's main event enough that I'll probably buy GBA just on the strength of that. (And, I mean, the undercard is almost certain to be better, right?)
I told my brother during the ME that it would probably end in a SCHMOZ so that the feud could continue. Thanks, Stu, for the added emphasis!
Originally posted by hhhgamewmx7Hey tsmstu...you we're one of the best things of the show. Great stuff...loved your Razor Ramon little dance after Mordecai did the Razor's edge. When abouts did Nick Patrick laugh at your sign...i should go back and take a look. When i saw the CRZ sign i thought you were from he board....and you are. I saw the tech guy walkin over to ya..i thought he'd take your ''dud'' sign. You have to get WM21 front row...we need someone in the front row to keep us entertained!
Anyway...it was an ok show, tag, us title, wwe title only good things. Bad Blood looks to be a good one.
I am working on WM21 tix, dont you worry!
Nick Patrick was laughing during the time Booker was holding up the sack at taker. He looked over and laughed and gave us a "wink and nod", my little section of people were loving him for that..
As for stills, if anyone has any stills that feature any of my antics, I would love a copy for my site...PM me or send me an email..
Thanks to all for the props! I feel so loved today!
I guess every dog does have his day around here, even though crz is probably puking....Even the great wade keller and the LAW mentioned my signs..WOW!!

That is so funny you said that because when I read the handful of people who picked Dawn Marie to win in the prediction thread for whatever reason. The thing that crossed my mind was a Simpson's Episode where Krusty having mob trouble due to his gambling debts and his agent asked "You took the last of your savings and bet AGAINST the Globetrotters" as Krusty responds "Ahhh, I thought the Generals were due!"... So for all you people who picked against Torrie. I'm the agent, you are Krusty. LoL
I find humor in TorrieBerg streak nowadays it's so lame, she annoyed me back when the brand split first happened & was put over IMO the more overall interesting Stacy. Beats Dawn 3 days after after her father's "funeral" while still selling emotional distraught. Bring Sable in to play mindgames & have Torrie no sell it & not even do a match. And of course her squashing Nidia with the greatest of ease, as Nidia goes to Raw & goes 50/50 with Molly Wins!... I never thought of the Torrie/H3 comparison but thinking of it now, she does kind of compare to the HHH 2002/03. How many failed angles/storylines with females or males do you have to be a part of before they decide "Hey let's try another lead lady on SD". Gayda is actually looking really good these days. I think some of it has to do her not being on the very talented Raw side to a more shallow talent pool of SD. But whatever the case, Gayda is looking good.
I didn't watch the PPV, so I won't comment on specific of how the matches were. I am surprised that Dupree didn't win the title, you'd think a Frenchman with a United States title will write itself... I'm also surprised about the positives of the main event. I do wonder if our friend Hot Newz is on something (well not illegal stuff, we all suspect that LoL I'm talking about a point). On how an average match with a real good blade job gets double the credit. Of course the mature thing is to go out, find a copy of the match and watch it. But I just don't know if I can go on living with knowing that I consciously went out of my way to find a BRADSHAW match, it just seems so wrong. You can see how I'm conflicted.
smark/net attack wienerville advisory stays at BLUE alert - Guarded (With Benoit & Eddie being World & WWE champions you'd expect all's be right but couldn't do it due to Trish/Y2J character switches & whats the deal with JBL PPV main event)- 5/6
I agree: Dule Hill was one of the best hosts, IMO. I don't know if he's a wrestling fan, but he came off as someone who really wanted to be there and was enjoying the show. A much better RAW than last week,at least the parts I saw:
