"Hey, notice that this was the only match that got any kind of crowd reaction?"

Well, I just got home from the show and I can say for sure that this was not the only match that got any reaction. The live crowd was into everything except the tag title match and the start of both the Hell in a Cell match and Angle/Edge. Hell in the cell was probably because everyone knew it had no chance of ending until they went outside and up. By the time Jericho and HHH got the the top the crowd was really into it. If I remember correctly the cell match between HHH and Foley suffered from a silent crowd also until they went outside. Angle and Edge suffered because there was a mass exodus to the concession stand after the Austin match. The tag match had no heat beacuse it sucked and no one cared.

The fans were totally into Austin v. Flair/Show. Especially the ending.

For what it's worth:

Hogan is booked to wrestle Jericho tomorrow night on a Smackdown house show in a match that was never listed as an Undisputed Championship Match. There's no real rule that says he has to be on Raw. Triple H went to Smackdown when he lost the title, but he also wasn't drafted. Hogan was, by Smackdown and since all signs seem to point to Hogan beating Vince at KotR and heading into his "lesser" role, I'd say he's gonna end up on Smackdown.

I know that doesn't really have a whole lot to do with Judgement Day, but I saw some people doing the ol' future speculation, so I thought I'd throw that out there.

Triple H is without a doubt the biggest piece of crap on wrestling today. I wanted to believe the Fed will but Jericho over H once (oh yeah how can I forget the memorable smackdown match, well easily I just did)... Isn't it strange all the people here who picked Jericho to win had good reasons why it would make sense if it does, and the people that picked H (myself included) reason was "well it's Triple H able to make someone of course he won't do it"

As for the match, well it came under-expectations, but personally I can't think of a Triple H match since his return that came over-expectation, but I'm sure it's Jericho's fault... My favourite part was the aftermath of the match and Ross was putting over how it's was a buh-gawd war for Triple H as well. And on cue Triple H got up stuck out his chest and did his steriod pose over his fallen squashed prey. Great way of selling that this match was a war unlike any normal match, by getting in your posing time, Go F yourself H

As for the rest of the card (brackets if my picks were right or wrong)

Eddie v. RVD - I liked the match, nice spots, again I think it went a little under-expectations. surprised that Eddie won. Will this mean RVD going up the card. Call me a cynic but I doubt it. (wrong pick)

Trish v. Stacy - I thought it was okay it did have a Smackdown feel to it I guess the interplay with the Dudleyz is the main reason for it to be on PPV, there were no "we want puppies" which I am glad because how hard Trish worked a chant like that is like nails on a chalk board. Nothing noticably missed. Trish's forarms shots are strong. Fans were into it, and following face/heel responce (with stacy as the heel she could very well be cheered as well but they were behind Trish). The few transation stuff worked well. For me it went over-expectation... I was actually a little disapointed with the Dudleyz interplay, I'd think we'd see some more interplay during the match. And tease a reunion (face or heel) during the match by using one of the girls. But it all happened after the match. (correct pick)... Bucks as for Molly/Trish I'm glad they didn't do it yet, I think those two girls could do something special lets not waste it with zero TV time.

Brock/Heyman v. Hardyzzz - Well how much I hate the Hardyz, seeing Heyman pin one of them put a smile on my face, to make it a huge grin she should have pinned Matt. (wrong pick. but happy anyways)

Austin v. Flair/Bigshow - To me it looks like Austin has no motiavation at all, he seems the guy who plays up or down to his opponent. In the last month he had Hall, Taker and Bigshow, and you don't play much lower then that. (wrong pick)

Edge v. Angle - I thought it took a while for them to heat up, but once they did, they were on fire. Match of the night. (correct pick)

Hell in the cell. Well I talked about that already (I picked correctly unfortunatly and not surprising)

Rico/rikishi v. billy/chuck - god this title is horrible, one amusing thing Ross trying to convince us oh how much fun this angle will be. Great Ross keep trying to convince us. This won, I along with the arena couldn't care less match of the night. (wrong pick)

Hogan v. Taker - I know Hogan has a lot of hate on him, but I'd still rather see him on 2 shows the Deadman. I don't get why have Hogan lose the title to another old guy (correct pick.. but sad that I was right)

other stuff : Booker/Goldust saw it a mile away, but I still liked it, (but I didn't need to see Books buttocks)... Terri doing backstage interviews and not Lilian makes me very very unhappy. DO NOT cut Lilian time for Terri.

sign of the night "RIP, Davey Boy" atleast someone remembered him

Quote of the night: Raven on heat talking about the shave my head match "As long as Brutus the barber beffcake doesnt' show up, It'll be cool" - Why isn't this guy on one of the A shows... On the PPV the only thing that comes to mind was J.R talking about how "this was a battle and a war for H as well" a second before H got up and start to pose like it was easy.

I went 500 I think. NOt bad picking, but I was less then exsited about this PPV going in and it didnt disappoint or surprised me in a good way. So blah. The live crowd seemed pretty hot for most of the matches (except the brutal tag)

I say: Of course, that's not a near fall. Nobody bought it, which is why nobody counted along. Recall when HHH had Jericho pinned in the cage and the crowd counted along? There was never any moment in that match where the crowd bought a possible Jericho victory - hence, a glorified squash.

That was because Jericho was the heel. I've never heard any crowd count along to a heel getting screwed out of a pin.

Other Random Thoughts:

-RVD/Eddie was much better than Backlash. Loved the surfboard spot.

-Edge/Angle was not as good as Backlash.

-Hogan/Taker was better than HHH/Hogan and Taker/Austin COMBINED! Bravo.

-Once again we see the real reason that the nWo can't get over... Cause Austin won't f'n let 'em! Geez! Would it have really hurt his precious heat to lose a FREAKING HANDICAP MATCH!!! The longer the casual fans cheer for this asshole the smarkier I feel myself becoming... and that's really something I don't want to happen. I did like the what/woo bits that the crowd did (and they never messed up!)

-HitC was good but not HitC good. No big spots, no broken cage, and I thought the ending was questionable... I always thought pinfalls only counted inside the ring.

-Women's match was surprisingly good considering Stacy was involved. But am I wrong or did the Dudley angle take longer than the actual match?

-The tag match was questionable, but I do like the idea of the AGD losing the titles to Rico. It sets up a story that may actually give the belts a boost, even if only a minor one, as opposed to what it was before... a belt with no story.

-Who did the Hardyz piss off? Brock needs some fresh meat, and the Hardyz need to find some way to get back into the tag scene.

Here are my thoughts, and a review of my predictions. Keep in mind that I didn't shell out $30 for this crap, I'm just going by the recaps.

On my predictions, I went 2-6. I was correct in my assumption that Triple H will NEVER put Chris Jericho over on a PPV, and also correct on my assumption that the WWF isn't quite stupid enough to let Stacey Kiebler win the Women's Title.

Unfortunately, the general assumptions I had turned out to be far too optimistic. “Hey, let's have the third straight World Title change on PPV!” Chris Jericho's long reign as WWF Champion made the Undisputed Title mean something. But the short reigns by Triple H and Hulk Hogan have degraded that effort.

“Hey, let's let Paul Heyman pin Jeff Hardy!” The Hardyz have become Brock Lesnar's own personal bitches recently, but this is about as low as it gets.

“Hey, let's let Steve Austin defeat both Ric Flair and The Big Show! That will build interest for an Austin/Flair match! By God, I swear as long as I'm running this company, it will never be profitable again!” Great way to build my interest!! What the HELL IS THE WWF THINKING, DAMMIT?!? THAT SIMPLY DOES NOT MAKE SENSE!

[takes several deep breaths, trying to calm down]... I'm sorry. But they're flushing the federation down the gutter with this nonsense. I was a big WCW mark, I know that the WWF is going down a slippery slope right now. And at this point, I'm not sure there's anything that can stop it. The same man who lost to Shane and Vince in a handicap ladder match can then go out and defeat not only The Big Show, but by God, RIC FLAIR??? I'm sensing myself getting angry again. [more calming breaths...]

I'm just about through watching this bullshit. Hey, if you guys in Indianapolis want to see a show where the promoter knows how to hold your interest, come check out WCWO sometime. For $8, you can get a ringside seat. It's fun, and you can interact with the wrestlers before, during and after their matches. They sign autographs at intermission, and you can talk to them when they hang out after the show.

I actually got to speak to the brand-new WCWO World Heavyweight Champion only a minute or two after he won the title. I went to the men's room and there he was, washing up in the sink. We talked for a good five minutes, and it was a great conversation.

Just as importantly, every match is (if not necessarily a four-star classic), at the very least interesting. Some of them are excellent matches, but you don't get duds like you get for shelling out $30 for a WWF pay-per-view.

I'm just about done with the WWF. And you know something... I'm looking to start my independent wrestling career very soon, and right now I don't want to be in the WWF.

Some thoughs on all your comments (haven't seen the ppv yet.)

Jericho: He is a whiner, he is a crybaby and he just might make something out of this 'i wasnt pinned in the ring' thing.
And remember how Rock never gets to beat Austin when it really counts? Same with HHH and Jericho. Who knows, maybe someday this will all come to play and he does get his wins (like when H gets his head out of Vince's ass..)

Booker T: Hey, he is a pro, he said and does what he is asked, but that still doesn't make him a real nWo member.he was out of the buildng while the rest of the nWo (Show/Pac) got their asses handed to them, who knows what will go down..Flair apparently sees something in Booker T or he wouldnt have picked him personally to help him..

Tag team titles..ack, this sounds just too lame. This will be going on for at least another month..
Now I don't mind when belts are being swapped in a GOOD storyline, but this is just crappy. Mostly because Rikishi is involved. Perhaps it will lead to the island boys though?
It's official and sad, the WWE has shot itself in the food breaking up teams and now they have no real place to go. They know it and try to hide it with one big comedy angle.

Heyman/Lesnar, etc..I hope they have some idea where this is going.
I say they sort of halted Lesnar to punish him for his part in the plane ride..

Taker wins, yay! I wonder what Hogan is going to do now. Perhaps a fight with Vince, but I don't see his carreer lasting that much longer actually. Didn't he have a broken rib and didn't he say the reason he wasn't going to have it fixed now because he would have to take time off which is a no-go when you are the champ? Bye Hogan!!

The Dudleyz..this is exactly what I predicted..the match was fluff for D-Von and Buhbuh showing which side they are on. Will this lead to a direct feud? that depends on the KotR set-up..

I wonder what would happen should Ric Flair win the WWF Title, only to lose to Smackdown wrestler. Would the RAW owner not be allowed on RAW anymore?

Lame technicalities don't restore heat or credibility. H has wiped out Jericho in two consecutive matches over the past 3 months, not to mention squashing him in tag matches. The only way the feud could logically carry on is if Jericho runs over H's dog. Oh, wait.



    And remember how Rock never gets to beat Austin when it really counts? Same with HHH and Jericho. Who knows, maybe someday this will all come to play and he does get his wins (like when H gets his head out of Vince's ass..)


The Rock was ultra over without beating Austin. Austin didn't NEED to elevate Rocky, Rock had plenty of cred thanks to wins over numerous established workers and a feud with the boss. Meanwhile Jericho only gets clean wins over...uhm...didn't he beat Chyna?



    Booker T: Hey, he is a pro, he said and does what he is asked, but that still doesn't make him a real nWo member.he was out of the buildng while the rest of the nWo (Show/Pac) got their asses handed to them, who knows what will go down..Flair apparently sees something in Booker T or he wouldnt have picked him personally to help him..


Wrestling is fake.

That would pretty much SEAL it as a WCW-type angle. And PLEASE give me more lethargic samoans with bitch tits. I'm clammorin'...CLAMMORIN', I tells ya.



    Heyman/Lesnar, etc..I hope they have some idea where this is going.
    I say they sort of halted Lesnar to punish him for his part in the plane ride..



He squashed two guys and no-sold everything. What a punishment.



    Taker wins, yay! I wonder what Hogan is going to do now. Perhaps a fight with Vince, but I don't see his carreer lasting that much longer actually. Didn't he have a broken rib and didn't he say the reason he wasn't going to have it fixed now because he would have to take time off which is a no-go when you are the champ? Bye Hogan!!


So this leaves the Taker to feud...Sid? Just kidding. Sid might job. Actually it'll be interesting if (ha! WHEN) the H gets in the ring with the Taker and the universe implodes from the collision of two such massive non-jobbing/selling forces.



    The Dudleyz..this is exactly what I predicted..the match was fluff for D-Von and Buhbuh showing which side they are on. Will this lead to a direct feud? that depends on the KotR set-up..


Good of them to use Deacon to get BuhBuh Rhodes over, while they were at it. Why was that segment so long? Were they waiting for the crowd to catch on?

    Why couldn't they just have Austin vs Big Show/Flair, then HHH vs Jericho, then Undertaker vs Hogan?



Because, quite frankly, Austin vs. Flair/Big Show was most definitely a midcard match, and pretty much a comedy match as well.

What was at stake? No belts. No stipulations, besides the fact that it was a handicap match. No repurcussions for winning or losing, apart from pride.

What was the angle? Austin vs. Anything Resembling An Authority Figure, Take 47. Flair vs. Austin started as a rehash of Austin vs. Commissioner Foley (I like you, but you must respect my authoritah), then mutated into the umpteenth take on Austin vs. McMahon (evil owner vs. bionic redneck). Done, redone and redone some more.

Instead of McMahon's Corporation, we had Flair with the nWo -- three guys who were "the poison that would destroy the WWF", who are now a face, injured and fired, respectively. The replacements? The Big Slow hasn't been a credible threat to anyone in a while, the Grease Spot That Walked Like A Man even more so, and Booker's got the T-shirt but that's about all so far.

The match? Austin avoids double-team after double-team, no-sells a lot, flips the bird at every opportunity, stunners everything in sight and wins, as everyone in the building knew he would.

This, you want to move up the card?

Simply put: Austin and Flair need something better to do.

This is the definition of pure optimism. For 2 unchecked years now Jericho has been HHH's bitch without letup or change. It's time for any doubters to accept the inevitable. HHH will NEVER let Jericho go over him in any meaningful sense, and any time he feels like his heat is slipping and he needs to squash someone he'll call Jericho's number for job duty.

My take, top-to-bottom:

* RVD/Eddy was a nice little match, with Eddy doing everything he could early to make Rob look like a million bucks. Wily vet retains by CHEATING TO WIN~!, and all is well in the world. This should not have been the opener, though -- another 5-10 minutes would have been nice.

* Trish/Stacy was about what you'd expect for a match involving Stacy. Trish is improving, but she was in there with dead weight, and the blown spot in the first minute had me wincing. Mercifully short. Afterwards, When Dudleyz Collide was uninspiring.

* Hardyz/Heyman-Lesnar was a very sad commentary on the state of the tag-team division. Ugh. Lesnar is a pure spot machine right now, and REALLY needs to be coupled with some opponents who can try to teach him some other fundamentals. Neither the match nor its ending did anything for me -- I like Heyman, but this was all pointless.

* Austin/Flair-Show I covered above. For what it was (a midcard comedy match), it was adequate, but I'm sure most expected more. Austin went through the motions, Flair was fine, Show was a big lump as always.

* Edge/Angle built up to a reasonable match -- lots of fun spots in the last few minutes. They had me wondering for a minute near the end, as Edge had hit everything that he'd even thought about using as a finisher and still got two-counts, but ye olde rollup worked for me. No surprises in the booking, and Angle was a gem (as always, both as a wrestler and as a company man). The shaving had me wincing, however -- Edge damn near took some chunks out of Angle's head while he tried to figure out how to use the clippers.

* Um, Booker? TELL ME THAT I DID _NOT_ JUST SEE THAT. Was it just me, or did Booker expose more than just his ass on the way out the door?

* Jericho/HHH... it would've been nice to see Jericho get a big win, but it ended up just as I expected. Mr. My-Quad-Was-Hanging-By-A-Thread-But-It's-Just-Fine-Now dominated, as usual. Nice Tim White bump -- a lot more convincing than the typical "Someone brushed against me, I must now fall unconscious" routine. Jericho's push will be fine with a little time and a new feud, but he really needs a different sparring partner.

* Okerlund is back? Aw, CRAP. Everything 1983 IS new again!

* Hogan/Undertaker was a screeching horror... but we knew that going in. We also knew who would win, and how. The end result is that Hogan is now on once a week instead of twice, and I am thankful, and I will move along now instead of lingering on the WORST CHOKESLAM OF ALL TIME.

My pick for match of the night: RVD vs. Eddy. Difference between this and their encounter at Backlash was like night and day; while the latter didn't suck, I think it was a case of "failed to live up to expectations".

What I'd like to know is why the match for the "second most important" title in the company has been relegated to the curtain jerk position for the pay-per-views.

Trish vs. Stacy. Save for the inevitable "beat on the half brother with the collection box" aftermath? Eh.

Hardys vs. Lesnar/Heyman. I know I'm probably in the minority here, but anytime someone comes out and beats on "Team Extreme", I'm happy. Nothin' like a little Brock fodder to add to my viewing enjoyment.

That being said, I will be ECSTATIC though, if someone will super glue Heyman's hat so we never have to look at that bald spot again!!

Austin/Flair/Show. Well, since it looks like the weekly Hardcore clusterf**k will probably happen on RAW, we had to have a comedy match on the card....and look who drew the short end of the straw!! Jesus. This could've been SO much more brutal! Note to Vince, Jim Ross, & the rest of the booking committee? If you're trying to get a guy over as a monster, unstoppable heel (read: Big Show), it kinda helps if you LET HIM ACTUALLY GET IN THE RING EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE.

Hair vs. Hair match. Damn, but I was marking out like a motherhubbard for all those false finishes near the end. The initial disappointment in Angle running off immediately after the match was rewarded with a sterling backstage chase....although, honestly, you'd think these guys would know more curse words to fling at each other than "you sonofabitch!"

I can't wait till next months house show with the SmackDown crew...."You're bald...you're bald....." heeheehee.....

Booker T & his honey. Hell, a blind man could've seen the payoff to that one running down the boulevard, with or without a red flag!!

Jericho vs. HHH.
My friends, we are gathered here today to pay our last respects to the once promising career of one Chris Jericho. I've said it before, I'll say it again, HHH will NOT do the J.O.B. to Y2J to save his immortal soul from hell!!

Oh, wait a minute, I don't think he has one...he sold it to Vince McMahon and dating his daughter helped seal the deal.

I don't know if they were told to take it easy, since people keep dropping like flies due to injury, but I found this HITC to be disappointing. It wasn't "Kennel From Hell" bad, but it wasn't up there with the Foley/Taker and Foley/HHH ones.

We bring back "Mean Gene" to host "Confidential" and get rid of the 2nd best announce team in WWE (Raven & Coach). At least they still have Sunday Night Heat, thank merciful Christ......

I fully expected Taker to walk out with the belt, so no surprises there. Put Vince in the Flair role, it's 1991 all over again!

All things considered, I basically enjoyed this PPV. For some reason, "Judgement Day" usually ends up being one of my favorites when the end of the year arrives and I'm looking back over everything.

Probably because Foley wasn't in this one, and neither HHH nor Jericho are as masochistic as Foley was. Very few people are. I didn't expect Honma/Yamakawa levels of blood or a gigantic "Holy Shit" spot in this match, because neither participant is really known for that sort of thing, and they're too valuable to the company when healthy.

Firt of all, I didn't think the Goldust segment was predictable at all. It came as a complete surprise to me, and it was the laugh-out-loud moment of the year so far...of course, next to "YEAH, I'M THE SCORPION KING, AND I'M THE FIVE TIME WCW CHAMPION, AND I GOT THIS SWORD!!!"

Two observations: last night was "everyone do a belly-to-belly suplex night" and "everyone say son of a bitch night."

Altogether, a mediocre show, IMHO.

Angle hiding from Edge, and then running away, and Edge running after him yelling, "Angle you sonofabitch!"

I was torn on the PPV. Agree with most of the comments here. I wish I hadn't missed the RVD/Eddie match.

The Booker T stuff was predictable, but it was still hilarious. The bar I was watching it at was in uproarous laughter, also.

My favorite line of the night:
JR: "...They're in one of those semi trucks parked in the back."
King: "No they're not."

Ross is really starting to lose it.

Just got back from Episode II. (Loved it by the way).

Judgment Day and Episode II have a lot in common. The events in Episode II aren't all that bad on the surface for the most part. But everyone knows what has to come from this, and everyone knows it isn't going to be good.

Same with Judgment Day. Food for thought.

Re: SummerSlam, I think it was just a matter of Bossman being WAY more popular at the time. So injuring Tugboat did two things for the Hogan/Quake match: (A) It added a better cornerman and (B) Put more heel heat on Earthquake.
