CRZ, I have a pair of pants with a giant "F" on them...it doesn't mean that the WWF is pushing me.... Wait a minute....maybe it does...
LAME DREAM STORY: I had a dream one time, right after watching a pay-per-view, that I was a WWF superstar and that I was on RAW fighting for the title against The Rock...it was a while ago. Anyways, it's back & forth, until the Rock tries for Rock Bottom...I kick him in the balls and nail him with a DROPKICK and pin him. Yay!
And then I woke up and somebody had stolen my pants with the giant "F" on them....the bastards.
Bottom line is: what? Maven rules! The bottom line is one word?
Maven versus Jericho, eh? Could this be the first match between these two that could lead to an epic series of battles? Probably not. Here's to hoping Maven gets some nice shots in and doesn't blow any spots!
...Some fear the Pink... ...But many fear....THE MOUNTIE! (He's handsome, he's brave, and he's strong, you know)
As of right now I really don't see the point in this. Why not throw a deceant worker like Crash Holly in there and make it interesting instead of Maven. I'm hoping it's pretty much a squash...not because I'm a Jericho mark... just for my sanity
I'm a mark for Maven's dropkick, but Chris Jericho pretty much has to kick his ass, right? If Y2J has that much trouble against the greenest of all green wrestlers, there's no way the WWF is remotely serious about pushing him as a potential threat to Triple H.
And that, as they say, is that.
“If anybody's gonna kill my creation, I'm gonna do it! Me... and the nWo.”
Ya know, if they want to bring back all of WCW Jericho, Maven just might win the damn thing.
Visualise... Opening match, Jericho vs Maven. Jericho throws him around, toys with him, and just beats the hell out of him. In comes HHH or someone with a chair, lays Jericho out, Maven is in the right place at the right time again, pinfall.
Opening of second hour interview, Jericho trots out his posterboard, whines for 20 minutes in hilarious fashion until Flair finally makes a return match for the main event.
Main event, Jericho destroys Maven, culminating with three lionsaults, and the liontamer, winning the title back. Taker chokeslams the shit out of Maven for good measure.
No matter how bad things may get, just imagine what would happen if Vince Russo was booking again, and you will feel better.
The vibe I had coming into this was that this match would be kind of similar to the TAKA/HHH match a few years ago on RAW. That was a total mark out moment for me... I actually *believed* that TAKA had a chance of winning the thing!
Even though this match wasn't close to as good as the TAKA/HHH match, you still felt that Maven had a chance of winning. It was sad that the fans weren't behind Maven that much... they seemed quiet for pretty much the entire match.
But it was cool to see Maven with his own wrestling attire. It even had a big "M" and his name "Maven" on it!
Just looking at an SEC document that WWE filed (sorry, I'm at work, so I can't provide a link to where I found this from): In fiscal 2003, Vince had a salary of $1,085,000 and $855,500 in `other compensation' (which includes talent fees and insurance).
