Anyone get the implication that Heyman was gonna jump ship from Brock to The Big Show? They seemed to emphasis the word "advised" when TBS said "I've been ADVISED to not hurt you" or whatever. Heyman to cost Brock the title? Or at least try?
Of course they had to telegraph it with the "my client" remark before the match, but overall I thought it was well done, especially with the news of Brock's injury. I was extremely entertained by the entire PPV, definitely worth my money.
By the way, we've seen posts about "c'mon Jeff goddammit" and Steiner's f-bomb. Anyone else think WWE overmiked the crowd noise just a wee bit and kinda got bit? Either way, the crowd was awesome and helped the mood greatly. Just curious if perhaps there were extra mikes to take advantage of a notoriously hot crowd.
I'm not so sure they "got bit". MSG always gives me that rowdy, intense feel so having a bit more colorful language just adds to the atmosphere. Agreed that we heard way too much during the Tables Match, though. And congratz on being so prescient, HN.
For many of us, we can remember the golden era of wrestling, when we'd tune into WWF Superstars or WCW Worldwide and watch the 5-minute squash match, essentially an exhibition of a star's arsenal as he squashes a hapless no-name jobber.
