-Divasearch/Orton/Benoit- The other twin got kicked out, aaah I guess we can't have the twin girls double switch during competitions now... Orton shows footage of him pinning Benoit, Benoit says he has footage of making Orton tap, Orton said it doesn’t exist. Benoit puts on the crossface, now it does. Actually didn't Orton once tap out on a real good tag or 6-man main event a month or so ago?
-Nidia/Stacy/Victoria vs. Molly/Gail/Jazz- The match was not very good unfortunately. I think the problem was that Stacy was in the ring for so long, and I understand having the non-wrestler doing the selling but the thing is selling well takes as much (or even more) talent then doing offense, and Stacy just didn't sell too well... Trish coming out and gathering the divas for a group cause is interesting, A little SDish in girls becoming align all of a sudden, but if it's for a solid and big cause it might be worth while (it wasn't)
-Lita/Kane/Hardy interaction- But first backstage Lita tells Matt that baby isn't his, Oh Matt's rollercoaster of emotions is starting up again... We have a contract signing, WWE attorney is on hand for a arranged marriage stipulation. Kane looks like a happy Mr. Bean. Lita signs, Kane signs (does anyone have last names?). Matt stalls displaying his rollercoaster of emotions (wait we've been through this already). Matt Hardy pushes the table on Kane and hits him with a briefcase that bounces off Kane's head (was that thing made out of Tupperware).Boooo
-Jericho vs. Edge- Did this match start s-l-o-w. It looks like both guys are playing up they were exhausted 5-minutes in. It got better after the commercial but it never really got me totally into it, I think the face/face aspect hurt it for me, and I'm certain that the horrible boring first hour did no favors as I was already pretty tired of this show... Batista comes in and destroys Edge as Jericho does nothing, that's surprising (no not being sarcastic lol)
-Eugene/HHH/Regal interview- Eugene is in the ring and he's very mad at Triple H, Come out here you bad man!... But HHH is in Eugene & Regal lockerroom brutally attacking Regal. Did Eugene leave the door unlock?
-Cage/Albright vs. Rhyno/Tajiri- 2-minutes for Team ECWguys to defeat team Red tights jobber and to my surprise the time limit actually expired. That was,, unusual... Ha Tajiri standing on the ropes as Rhyno kicks it in anger and Tajari almost falls off.
-Divasearch- of horror continues. All the wannabe's are introduced and giggles giggles giggles out comes Trish with the rest of the real deal divas. Okay lets see what's the plan, what was this great plan to unite heels and faces all together for a common cause. Dodgeball? Dodgeball? What... Please tell me this is going to be pretaped and not live, this has BAD written all over it.
-Benoit vs. Orton/HHH- Benoit actually was portrayed as a pretty strong ass kicker here, he looked really good fighting off Orton, HHH and even Flair. The time keeper took a major throw/bump over the railing!... Eugene runs in after the match and runs wild throwing around the #1 contender as the champion lays on the ground erh
-OtherStuff- Regal & Eugene are in a hotel room together (hot). Regal wants a nap and tells Eugene to watch some TV, but he doesn't want to turn on Raw because he has to watch creepy Diva search so he doesn't bother, smart guy... As idiot us has to watch this. First one up Joy as she pours ice cream on herself, I flip, this is embarrassing pathetic garbage. I hate her.
-Sign of the Night: "Chris Benoit Rocks" - so simple, so markish lol -Line of the Night: Lawler "I love a good rake to the face in the name of competition" -3Stars of the Night: 1)Benoit. 2)Orton. 3)Timekeeper - who bumped over the rail.
That first hour had nothing going on. Y2J/Edge was okay but I know they can do better. The main event I thought was good. Everything else, less spoken the better.
smark/net attack wienerville advisory is raised to YELLOW alert - Elevated (JBL is the new WWE champion, good gawd hide under the desk. But Benoit is World Champion allowing some safety in the IWC)- 6/28
Did anyone else catch in the contract signing that Matt has the right to marry Lita if he wants to. As soon as that was mentioned I could see Matt winning the match and then turning and refusing to marry Lita.
For 'pulling that number out of my ass' the weekend before Mania, I came very close to hitting this buyrate when I predicted a 1.4-1.5 buyrate. However, 500,000-525,000 isn't a 1.0 buyrate. Last I recall, a 1.
