Thanks for the feedback, everybody. So, for those of you who ignore the Fashion Report, keep on ignoring it. But, for those of you who enjoy the Fashion Report, we've got...

Austin, in black "Stunner Inc." radiant white skull tshirt, watches TV. Thhhor, in black sportscoat and white shirt (top THREE buttons undone) barges in. "Have a Nice Day" should be a giveaway (and it is).

...and a Fashion Report, too!

Why is the cell here?

Goldberg (with Double Doors!), in half-black/white fullcuts with barbed wire butt, black elbow-and knee-pads (with LOTS of Footage!) vs. Samoan Jobber Rosey, in black #1 baseball jersey and khaki shorts. jericho, in sparkly red "Chris Jericho" shirt and pants, with a chair, watches from the stage. Lillian's dress this week is a two-piece affair. Jericho tries to interfere, unsuccessfully. A jackhammer on the Samoan! Okay match. Afterwards, Goldberg slaps hands with kids.

Lazy writers' poll-of-the-night: who's the special ref?

Gail Kim - what, are they going for a Matrix vibe?

Rob, in yellow "RVD" singlet with black slashes, belt over the shoulder (with Kane's Footage!) vs. Renee, in shiny blue military coat, black "La Resistance" tights with blue/white/red left thigh, black beret with yellow lining and yellow knee-and-elbow-pads. Nice match. Post-match, Silvan joins for the beatdown. JR keeps asking "Where's Kane?" ('cuz this segment needs some more of him) Not that they're obvious about the Rob/Kane split.

Bisch, in black leather jacket, and Stone Cold, have a Wheel for the triathalon. What's with Bisch and wheels? Pie eating - Bisch says he can eat a lot, and Stone Cold points out the joke.

King, in same as always, and JR, in black hat and tan/green shirt, are our hosts. Superstars speak about "Classy" Freddie Blassie.

Kane, in the back, is confronted by Rob. Feel the tension.

Puppies, in red/black trenchcoat and sparkly red outfit, with Ivory, in black pants and purple top, vs. Victoria, in red "see-my-boobs" spider holed top and red pants, and Jazz, in black jungle-warrioress outfit, with Long, in blue suit and white shirt (no tie). Chops aplenty, and Trish busts out a Lou Thesz press! Jazz hits three nice suplexes. Why isn't Stevie with Victoria anymore? Victoria's talking and BITING is SO heelish! Again, Ivory with a fluke. A nice match, but kinda disjointed.

Christian, practicing a spinaroonie, and Jericho, in their locker room, are such heels. Jericho goes so far as to reveal his evil plan.

In the UK, Trish dressed like Robin Hood - you lucky Brits.

Steiner, in chainmail and black "Freakzilla" tights, with Stacie, in one-shoulder black dress, vs. Lance Storm, in red undies, kneepads and bats, with the jobber entrance (already in the ring). Test is at the announce table, sounding hoarse (Stacie's still in his video). Test/Steiner get involved on the outside. Poor match. Post-match Test clobbers Steiner and threatens (promises?) to make Stacie his whore. Boo him!

Austin is out, and he brings out Mick Foley, in trademark flannel shirt and sweatpants (to Mankind's music). Foley gets in the now-lowered cell and talks. HHH, in same as before, interrupts and he procedes to cut-down Mick, and then threaten him.

Flair, in black sportscoat, white shirt, and khakis, struts around the ring. He intros Randy, in black "Orton" undies with blue bolts (to Flair's music) vs. Hurricane, in green/black outfit, maska nd cape, with Shawn, in black tshirt with radiant white cross and blue jeans. Flair/Michaels on the outside, causes Flair to bleed heavy AGAIN. An okay, but short, match. Flair's head is covered in blood (ow!).

Mick and Spike talk backstage. Spike tries to talk Mick out of it, 'cuz he's concerned, see?

In the ring, King intros BookerT, in black hot-crotch, flamin' "BookerT" undies and Crhistian!, in lizzard skin shirt and brown leather pants, for a Spinaroonie Contest. Of course Christian makes an attack. A wasted segment, although Christian was pretty funny.

DVon, in orange camo pants, black "3D" tshirt, with Bubba, vs. Mack, in black sleeveless hooded sweatshirt and black undies, with Long and Destro(?). No, that's just Harvard in a Destro-style silver mask. Mack has new, crappy music. Wait - DVon is brown? Nice match.

Terri and Goldberg discuss how he feels. Jericho, with a chair, makes him feel pain (but he no-sells it).

Austin strolls around and talks to people; eventually Mick and him discuss, revealing Steve's doubts. I'm guessing that Steve doesn't realize that people change over time. Last week Kane and this week Mick.

Again the Cell lowers. HHH, in sans coat, is out. Mick is out, he gets beat up, but he still counts to three. Evolution, Diesel and Shawn all get involved, but Mick can still count to three. Let's call him the Count ('cuz he likes to count). Overlong.

Overall: Good show. But the Spinaroonie contest was wasted time, and the final beating just went on too long.

Sorry, but no interresting fans tonight.

Another "blah" show. Nothing really grabbed me tonight, not even Foley's return. Well, maybe just a little bit. None of the matches were particularly any good. On the bright side, there was no 20-minute talk-fest to open the show, but then again neither Flair nor Jericho got much mic time, so those 2 things cancel out.

Oh, and Helms is back to being as jobber. Wonderful.

I actually dug this show a lot, and that's the first time in a LONG time I think I can say that

Ivory actually gets a two match winning streak(!), Test gets heel heat(!!), and of course Foley kicks righteous ass on HHH, takes his trademark beatdown, gets right back up, it takes THREE people to keep him down, and for once a HAPPY ending to the end of the show

Really good stuff

Heel heat of the night easily goes to Mighty Ducks goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere, who was booed off the ice upon winning the Conn-Smythe trophy in New Jersey tonight. Class fucking act, New Jersey.

My pop of the night goes to Christian for his absolutely hysterical dance routine. Just plain awesome. That alone was worth watching this show for, but we've got...

...Foley taking bumps! You KNEW he wasn't going to walk away, but I didn't expect him to walk down to the ring and fight. Yeah, I know he got his butt kicked, but more importantly, he made his point, and I loved it...until Orton, Flair, Nash, and Michaels had to get in on it. If they'd just left it with Foley counting to three the second time with HHH steaming at the top of the ramp, it would have been perfect.

Perhaps the most shocking news of the night...Mick Foley on WWE television and not ONE plug for his new book?!?

Steiner takes on Storm and this is your Georgia Championship Wrestling squash of the night, with Storm playing the part of Jim Nelson. Or was it Mike Nelson? Whatever. It's all a farce to plug Test, who attempts to bring up the buyrate by verbally abusing Stacy so we'll all want to see Steiner pummel him. Yeah. We're all PSYCHED about that one. Ha.

Kane is so depressed they didn't even set up his ring pyro. RVD is pissed. RVD is pissed?!? Dude, get a Slurpee and ride the waves, man.

So is Jazz credited with a face turn for keeping Theodore off the mike? Sure he came out later, but...The women's matched worked for me overall. I'm just happy to see Ivory being used, let alone getting to win once in awhile...

Not a bad show. Not a great show, but not bad...

Goldberg actually amused me tonight -- first by doing that comical dropkick (I've seen better from NIDIA, for Goddess's sake), and then by briefly getting his foot caught in Rosey's shirt while doing his "martial arts" kicks.

And I hate to admit it, but I'm actually intrigued by the Kane angle. Which is a bad omen, because the last angle they did that intrigued me was the Dudley Boyz/Bischoff/Morley one, and that just sort of collapsed in on itself with a damp farting noise.

I see the Ivory push as a sign that they've finally realized that doing Trish vs. Victoria and Trish vs. Jazz endlessly is getting old, and they need someone else to take the spotlight in the women's division for a while -- not like Trish is going to lose any heat by stepping back for a bit.

How sad is it that Mick Foley can do more in ten minutes to make the HIAC match look exciting than Triple H and Nash have done over the past two months? You'd practically think that they'd dumped Nash and gone ahead with Trips vs. Foley for Sunday ... which might not be a bad idea, because no way is Foley possibly in worse shape than Nash at this point.

I enjoyed the show, as always, but was it just me or did the crowd seem incredibly dead all night? I mean freaking Mick Foley, the god who walks among men comes back and it still seemed a little underwhelming.
Oh well, his return makes me happy even if it is only for the week.

Did you notice that you could of heard a pin drop when Rodney Mack and Nowinski were introduced and they walked out ? Wow, that had to feel uncomfortable.......I almost felt sorry for them.

It's starting to seem like the wrestling on Raw is just filler for the next segment. Week by week, the amount and the quality of wrestling on Raw is declining. I wonder how long it will take for creative to just abandon wrestling alltogether and have two hours of people talking about how they're going to kick eachother's asses. It's also kind of funny that the biggest star who had a match(Goldberg) was in the opening match.

Goldberg should have squashes every week. There's plenty of cannon fodder on Raw for him to do it. I've been liking the way that the Jericho/Goldberg feud has been booked so far. It's smart to keep fans wanting to see Goldberg destroy Jericho at the PPV rather than giving it away at Raw. They should book the possible HHH feud the same way.

Obvious booking rears it's head again, as Kane is definetly going to turn on RVD. I guess Goldberg is gonna need a heel challenger.

If creative has any sense, Test will beat Steiner. There is no point in Steiner winning, so you might as well build up Test for failed push #16. It would be kind of an interesting heel gimmick if Test was subtlely abusive to Stacy, but that might be crossing the line

The women's match was probably match of the night. Victoria is so awesome, but where's Stevie? Ivory/Jazz will probably be fun, but only for the fact that it's an actual different matchup. Gail Kim should freshen things up, hopefully.

Would the WWE be stupid enough to not put the belt on Booker T in Houston? I like Christian in his role, but they're making him into one big lame duck.

Where was the book shilling? It was kinda sad to see Foley giving HHH such a big verbal blowjob. The beatdown was kinda excessive, but it actually got the fans to give a shit about Nash for a little bit, so mission accomplished. I thought he should have ran in before the pedigree on the chair, because I thought that spot was really unesscessary.

Another eh show, lacking anything really good.

Somebody please remind me why Randy Orton is on my TV screen.

I don't care who his father was -- Orton has zero personality, a terrible look (Chippendales called, they want their gay dancers back) and no moveset to speak of. His finisher is a freaking bulldog, fer chrissakes!

There are so many other guys on the roster I'd rather see get some face time. So why is Orton supposed to be such hot shit? What am I missing here?

I was there live at the show... we were LOUD when Mick came on... lots of loud Foley chants - maybe it just didn't come off well on tv?

I'm surprised no one mentioned THIS:

During the "Trish/Ivory vs. Victoria/Jazz" match, after Jazz was thrown outside the ring, Trish yelled "Watch out, Jazz!" right before hitting her with a baseball slide. Never before have I seen a more blatant spot-calling.

Oh, and I loved the "King-a-roonie".

Man, that was freaky when Randy came out. Not only did an entire crowd, which had just seconds ago been absolutely rabid for Ric Flair, fall completely silent, but even the music trailed off, then for a brief moment even King and JR were silent, and for a few incredibly awkward seconds there was absolutely no sound at all in that arena as though in coming down to the ring Randy had ripped a hole in the fabric of space and time and was living in a complete vacuum. Just complete, undisturbed, overwhelming silence. Wow.

What's he going to do for his next trick? Block out the sun?

Was I the only one who thinks its a bit odd to see a born again Christian (with a cross on his shirt) beat and already bloody 50+ year old man?

And I'm agnostic... but that was just a bit creepy.

But if you're agnostic....my head hurts.

Another pretty blah Raw. I watched hockey and a L&O instead. I do find it funny how Kevin Nash is barely mentioned throughout the entire show. This HitC will be a train wreck coupled with a bowling shoe.

I think Jazz missed her mark on that. Victoria sat there holding Ivory on the top rope with Trish standing right next to her for a good 5 seconds before Jazz got into position for the baseball slide.

I am officially sick of Teddy Long and not in a good way. Rodney isn't over and he's a lost cause, Jazz isn't any more over than she was before he came along; give it up and go back to the stripes.

Could Test have looked any goofier when he delivered the line "I'm gonna make you my WHOOOOOOOOOORE?" I could not stop laughing at that constipated/angry face.

Funniest line: Goldeberg backstage with Terri; "Someday at Badd Blood, Chris Jericho is next." Someday? They still don't know when they're holding the event?

As I said, good show. I don't really care for high and low points. Liked the end. It was alright. Time to face the facts again. Are we going to see Nash as Champion after Sunday? I HOPE not because we'll have a flaming train ride to hell if we do.
