It still really bites that they chose the two least promising competitors out of TEII. I really do think that everysingle other member of the house was much better than Gayda. Oh well, maybe I'm spoilt by Maven and Nowinski.
According to Meltzer, the RAW rating for last night was 3.7 up .6 from last week.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, it was a post-PPV and all that, but this HAS to be looked at as an upside, especially since the Monday Night Football game was one of the higher rated ones of this year.
Since everyone else is doing it (ok, not EVERYONE, but...)
Vikings (3-7) - Where the hell has THAT team been? Badgers (6-6) - Bowl bound! Oh wait... Buffy 7... Earns Pi x 2 points...Uh...Not really sure what I'm supposed to thing...That was one friggin' weird episode...
Posted by a buttload of wieners (the first being ME)"Steiner. The face gives me a Harley Race vibe. The mouth gives me an Ultimate Warrior vibe (except he's choherent)."
"COHERANT?! Are we talking about SCOTT STEINER?!"
"we need a debate to settle this. Warrior vs. Steiner - the judges will be Dusty Rhodes, Mongo McMichael, and themonsterMENG"
"I'd probably have to give the idiocy advantage to the Dingbat Warrior, as while Steiner is a roided up lunatic, Dingbat also possesses these qualities. However, Warrior has also tried to invent his own language, and foster a belief system based upon himself. That, and when Steiner is a way, we don't hear from him. When Dingbat is away, he becomes the new Unibomber. Warrior's insanity FAR outweighs the insanity of Steiner. No question."
EXACTLY. Steiner can at least complete and end sentences without forty-three throwaway adjectives that leave you wondering what the heck he just said.
And to think, all I wanted to do was misspell "coherant".
Did anyone else notice on RAW last night...just about every time JR and Lawler mentioned HHH, it was in a positive fashion. Also, he's (still) aligned with Flair. If HHH had run-in last night at the end, does anyone think he would've gotten a face pop--much like Austin did last year after losing st SurSer the night before and coming out to accept the WWF Title from Flair? Or am I looking for similarities that don't exist?
I did notice that Flair's promo at the beginning of the night sounded like a face promo, about how Triple H would have gutted it out and shown up tonight, except that he was in the hospital, and as such got screwed out of an opportunity to win the #1 Contender's match. I hope they don't turn him face again.
The start-up costs of a wrestling promotion in this day and age is just astronomical. ECW was not a competitor to the WWF, not even close. It was an alternative, but it was never a pimple on McMahon's ass.
