Cryme Tyme is slow! Considering last night was pretaped, they should have played their match at 1.5 speed or something. I still liked them, though.

Vince McMahon is a genius. Somehow, he's done what teams of million-dollar agents, publicists and producers couldn't do: He found something K-Fed is good at. Federline is just an awesome slimy heel and the segment was inspired.

Am I the only one who noticed that Cena took an odd little shot at himself while dissing Federline? Or did I mishear it? He accused K-Fed of having "John Cena street cred." I thought that was a bit strange. "I'm a big phony! Love me!" Are we supposed to love him because he's man enough to admit he's a big phony? Doesn't that just remove any doubt anyone might have about his phoniness? (Still, I concede there was something oddly endearing about it!)

Something tells me that Cryme Tyme will walk out of Cyber Sunday with the tag titles (winning them, not stealing them).

I was rolling at the opening segment. Best one in a long time.

I think when Cena giving K-Fed the FU was the 1st time in a long time that he had the entire crowd behind him. I could watch that every week.
Cryme Tyme is very, very green. Especially Shad (sp?). Apparently his moveset consists of shoulder block and clothesline? Worked for Warrior, I suppose.

Cryme Tyme, even through their rather sluggish match, impressed the hell out of me. The segment with Bookah had me seeing good things for the future. I just hope they take the WWE voiceover guy out of their intro music. The segment also had me wishing I didn't work on Friday nights either because after weeks of King Bookah on Raw, I'm left wanting more.

Maybe it was just good for a one-time showing, but the K-Fed segment was very enjoyable and went over really well. I wouldn't mind seeing him back. Here's hoping we don't see him back in a Triple Cage match...

I thought going in, that the size differential was a lot greater between Shad and JTG, a lot funnier live than the vignettes, IMO.

The DX spoof was funny, as were Shawn, Edge, and Orton's reactions to their photos on the Tron.

Shelton's springboard "blockbuster" was a thing of beauty...I would love to see him use it more, personally, I think it looks more effective than the T-Bone.

King Bookah was great again too...I can definitely see why they have the belt on him, that gimmick is gold.

I think having the whitest sounding guy in recorded history start their entrance music helps. It's not the glass breaking or "IF YA SMELLLLLLLLLLLLL", but it could get there depending on their push.

What I'd like to see at Cyber Sunday is a triple threat for the tag titles. The fans vote for one team only(Cryme Tyme, Highlanders(who are still #1 contenders, IIRC), Haascera and Cade & Murdock), the top 2 vote getters get in. That would probably drop the 2 face teams in, give the Highlanders their title shot, Cryme Tyme the tag belts, and the Spirit Squad the perfect platform to implode.



I'm Charlie Owens, good night, and good luck.

Anyone else notice that none of the "big, Hollywood stars" couldn't really hold a candle charismatically to the WWE guys. Maybe it was because they were out of their normal douchebag element, but it really makes you wonder what passes for "talent" star-power in Hollywood.

Let me throw my hat into the bunch that enjoyed watching the WildBoyz get stiffed by Umaga...only to casually get up and jump out of the ring while Umaga was going up the ramp.

There seems to be only one thing that can get everyone behind Cena, and that's allowing him to beat up the one person in America who the people hate more then Cena himself...



Shit, even I jumped for joy and cheered for the bastard.

Oh yeah, and I wonder how DunknDollaz is feeling after taking that. (hehehe...)

I know a lot of people right now aren't really digging dX, but I for one am enjoying the tongue-in-cheek (is that the right term?) humor that they're using. At the very least they're having fun making fun of others as well as themselves.

CrymeTyme's music works for me because it's so over the top. White voice over followed by "brooklyn brooklyn!" rocks. They bring a great amount of energy that was sorely lacking from the show. Nobody's really mentioned it, but I for one cannot wait for the return of Booker T (not that the King isn't great). The Booker T persona popped up this past week on Smackdown, and again last night after he was pick pocketed. His return to 'T' is gonna be huge. As an aside, I noticed that Vince refers to him as Booker T and not King Booker. Odd.



It says so right here in the wcw handbook!

Yes! That's exactly what they are. X Division matches that build much, much better.


    And the team needs a name pronto.

Or to borrow from Edge's talk show...The Killer Edge. That actually sounds like a bad action movie title, but eh.

Couple things, in response to responses on here:

1) I'm surprised at all the dap given for Cryme Tyme's debut. Are we that desperate for tag wrestling? I mean it was only one match, but they showed little to nothing in the ring, other than the ability to stand there while Spirit Squad guys bounced off of them (specifically, Shad). The actual match consisted of moves that looked like they could've been learned in the first week of wrestling school. I don't know, I wouldn't consider them fun or exciting yet.

2) I'm not 100% convinced that the Steve-O/Umaga stuff was a shoot. The Jackass guys' gimmicks are that they can withstand a ton of pain and just laugh it off (sort of). So it was no surprise when Steve-O didn't completely sell the beating (though, maybe I wasn't paying attention, I didn't see him no-sell it either). Therefore, to make Umaga look more like a monster, he went back for more. And Steve-O's face after the big splash was priceless.

hrm... I could go on a sidebar here about how Hip Hop isnt just about being from the streets, but about self-expression... but I wont. Oh wait, too late.

Pretty entertaining show tonight, between DX, Randedge, Shelton Benjamin, Jeff Hardy and Cryme Tyme (these were the highlights for me)... yeah Geemoney, they still have to really show what they can do in the ring, but the fact that they are using basic wrestling means that they are learning it. They can put on a show, and they can definitely do a promo/backstage segment. They have a definite future is what Im saying.

I'd much rather watch guys that can't wrestle do simple 80's moves than watch guys that can't wrestle do weird, flashy, back-breaker Heidenreich moves that end up seriously injuring people.

All things considered though, the wrestler that impressed me the absolute most on this week's show:

Candice Michelle.
