The show was definitely hit or miss tonight. That Triple H match killed the crowd. They made up for it with that awesome Goldberg segment though. The crowd was eating it right up. I was at Backlash last night and he got booed out of the building, but not tonight. Not one boo. I was never a huge Goldberg fan, but I'm glad I saw that live.
Austin got a solid pop, which was a nice change from the mostly dead crowd throughout the night. He came back out after the cameras stopped rolling and he and Bischoff were talking about his firing from WCW. They shook hands and agreed to work as a team. Then Austin stunned him.
La Resistance got some really strong heel heat from the pro-USA crowd.
All in all a good show. And I won the tickets in a raffle at Backlash last night, which I also attended for free. Feels good not to give my money to Vince. He owes me many more free hours of quality programming.
Yes, I agree... Triple H being handed the belt was a heat-creating device. It'll make whomever beats him for it that much more over. And if RVD wins it from him, it might be the thing that makes him a permanent main-eventer.
