Jericho and Angle both rule all. I remember Angle's comment about Triple H's injury. (paraphrased) “You hurt your quad and had to sit out for eight months, boo hoo. Hey, I tore my quadricep this morning, and look at me! I'm fine!” HA!!!!
Unfortunately, I don't get a chance to watch SmackDown, since I'm invariably working on Thursday and my boss forbids me to watch wrestling while at Blockbuster. (Despite the fact that we sell more WWF paraphenalia than most Toys 'R Us stores... go figure).
Then again, perhaps I should be counting my blessings, because I for one don't want to see Billy, Chuck and Rico getting de-pantsed. Nor do I want to see Vince McMahon make out with Stacey Keibler. Strange that SmackDown is kind of more of the WWF Attitude show, while RAW contains most of the things that were great about WCW Monday Nitro. (And a few of the bad things). That being said, I love watching RAW.
“If there's anything I hate, it's a loud-mouthed Canadian with blonde hair who dresses like a rock star... except you, you're cool.”

While waiting for the 2004 Rumble to start, I went browsing through my tapes and put in the 1989 Rumble -- Rumble #2, won by Big John Studd. Amazing how many of the same things were present. Andre the Giant was in at #3 (after Ax and Smash started)
