Yeah, I loved the fact that Batista knew what was coming when Trips attacked him from behind, too. I was like, "Whoa! You're tellling me that someone who works for the company actually watches the show, too?" Heehee. Because too often people fall for things that have been done on so
many occasions. Nice touch that Batista didn't-- yeah, it shows he's thinking.
I also loved
the verbal barbs Benjamin and Jericho were throwing at each other. The one about Fozzy made me go, "Ooooh, that was cold!"-- and the crowd reacted in exactly the same way. Good delivery by Shelton! Jericho with the "Come on, what'cha gonna do about it? Ain't no stopping you now," was funny. I'm excited about Benjamin/Jericho for the IC Title at Backlash,
as I know those two are going to put on a showcase.
Who says either
man has to turn heel, though? What's wrong with having two faces who simply hate each other's guts? Absolutely no reason to turn either man heel-- let the crowd root for whomever they want to root for. Certainly both men can display some
heelish mannerisms, though, but for the sake of balance instead of the sake of turning one of them.
I, for one, am psyched about Hogan/Michaels vs. Hassan/Daivari, because who the fuck ever thought we'd see the Hulkster and HBK in the same ring? And since they're tag-team partners, the fact that Hogan, y'know, can't really wrestle worth a damn won't be exposed, in theory.
Edge/Benoit at Backlash
? Count me in for that one, too! I think it'd be awesome if Benoit defeated Edge at Backlash and gave him something further
to bitch about, despite the fact he's got money in the bank.
