Apperantly instead of Jericho/Steph vs. HHH, it will be a three way with Jericho vs. Steph vs. HHH. So help me God, if she wins I'll never watch this show again. If anything it looks like Jericho will be face again which is cool, just in time for Benoit to come back.
On a side note, X-Poc returns with the NWO as the internet cries, its about damn time. Well, we have NWO version 2.0 who else will join the new team?
(a) If Steph wins the Undisputed Title, I will probably turn off WWF TV and not turn it back on. With that, I think Vince is smart enough to not let his duaghter win the Title. On the other hand this is the WWF...
(b) X-Pac joining the nWo, eh. I was talking about this with a friend yesterday afternoon... The nWo angle is already ruined and bringing in the WWF Cruiserweight Champ (isn't he still the champ?) will not revive that miserable thing.
He's a war-weary Republican assassin haunted by an iconic dead American confidante She's a high-kicking gypsy stripper with a flame-thrower. They fight crime!
I'm not understanding how this is worse than before. I agree I don't want to see Steph win, but Steph could have won the old way as well it seemed (if she had pinned HHH). This way it seems more likely that Steph might actually get pinned because Jericho can pin her as well.
In a completely PC world, a mailman would be a personperson.
The Steph thing sounds more like the WWF saying "Hey, you'd hate Steph as champ, ha ha!" more than a real possibility of them actually having her as champ. Like her saying everyone loves her to acknowledge that they know everyone hates her. Of course, this pretty much takes away anyone's incentive in the match to bother trying to pin ol' Jericho, since HHH would want to pin Steph and Steph would want to pin Hunter.
For Jericho's part, he can win the title by pinning Steph, which seems about right with the way things have been going.
I'm no X-Pac fan, but he was going to come back one way or another and this seems like the only possible way to get something out of him. I haven't seen anything in the spoilers mentioning the LHW title, but that might not come up until next week. If they're phasing his belt out and Rock and Hogan are getting Hall and Nash, does this leave X-Pac for Austin? I wonder what the weather's like in Texas.
As for Shane's question about X-Pac running into Hogan backstage, he probably lucked out by Hogan not even remembering which little dude he is. If Hogan did remember, X-Pac should have tried defusing the the situation by claiming to still be real and still be The Juice.
So the question is, if Jericho pins Steph, does she still leave? Or does it have to be Triple H doing the honors?
They wouldn't put the title on Steph, would they? The only reason I can think of that Vince would do that would be as a big F-you to the internet people. That doesn't make any sense, but for some reason I can still see it happening.
X-Pac probably should be part on the nWo. It's not as if he has anything better to do.

Since I have a brand spankin' new kendo stick that is just CRYING to be used on someone's hide, if everyone in here will take up a collection for my plane ticket & rental car, I offer to go to next Monday's RAW in PA, run in the ring, and smack the bejeezus out of Steph!!
Hell, the way they're writing it these days, I could just take the damn belts and declare myself THE TRUE WWF DIVA AND UNDISPUTED CHAMPION!!!!
But no, they'd find a way to keep her on TV and bury Jericho all over again so maybe we oughta just forget the whole thing........
The WWF isn't dumb enough to put the title on Stephanie. That would kill any momentum the WWF might have off Wrestlemania and the good RAW rating monday. This is just to piss fans off by making them think that Stephanie MIGHT win, and then they pop louder when Triple H pedigree's her ass and we get rid of her. Poor Y2J though...welcome back to the mid-card.
But if the WWF is that stupid, well that free's up 4 hours for me.
When's Benoit gonna be back? 'Cause if they keep doing the "Oooh...look! It's somebody new! OOhh!!!" and having gimmicky Stephanie McMahon matches, at least bring Benoit back to CHOP the hell out of anything and everything... Anyone else remember the RAW where he headbutted the heck out of Stephanie? COMEDY GOLD. I want more of that.

It will be an excuse for both Trips and Jericho to beat up on Stephanie. Beating up women is usually wrong, but beating up Stephanie does wonders for everyone participating and watching. If Ariel Sharon and Yassir Arafat gets to beat up on Stephanie for twenty minutes in return for lasting peace in the Middle East, they would be happy to do it.

I never understood how Benoit headbutting the heel Stephanie made him a heel. But then again, I never understood why they kept heel Steph paired up with face HGH. The other great moment in that feud was when Steph BLASTED Benoit with a (non-worked) slap and Benoit just laughed at her.
That man (Benoit) sure loves his job. Having a piece like Nancy as a wife prolly doesn't hurt his outlook on life, either...
While we have just completed the entire run of sometimes great, sometimes awful, but never dull WCW programming in 1996, it’s easy to forget there was still another game in town. Over at Titan Towers, things were not promising.
