- The six man tag between the NWO and Bradshaw/Austin/Flair ends in a five-on-one beatdown on Flair, ending with Austin and Bradshaw joining the NWO. It was a swerve all along! Can anything stop the NWO now?! Over the next few weeks, RAW is turned into shambles by the unstoppable stable, and Flair finally admits defeat to McMahon. The two brand extensions merge once again after this.
- The "Battle of the Frog Splashes" between RVD and Eddie ends with RVD introducing the WWF audience to the Van Terminator. How's *that* for a frog splash, Eddie?
- Every time somebody says the word "WWE" in a promo, the crowd will burst out with high-pitched "Wheeeeee! Wheeeeee!" taunts. This will keep on going for weeks. It will be annoying as hell to the viewers at home.
I think it's about time the WWE(hah) turned around the wheels in this Austin-Flair feud. Instead of the SHOCKING SWERVE~ everyone is looking for, I expect Austin to accidently hit Flair with a chair, belt, or something to that effect causing Flair to lose the match. This gives Flair ample reason to stop sucking up to Austin and could lead to a match between the two.
I always thought that if I was as ugly as that guy I don't know what I'd do.
We're all jobbers here in the grand scheme of things, ya know?
For Raw, they have another week to build before the PPV, right? They could still go with either Austin/Flair or Austin/Big Show if they're holding off letting Austin have an actual match with him thus far. And the Flair storyline seems to be having Flair show good intentions but getting caught in situations where his intentions seem nefarious (or just make him look like an idiot - maybe they open the show blaming Flair for the missing F in the logo).
The best options seem to be having Flair get sidetracked going up the ramp or through the crowd after someone in the match (perhaps the guy with fewer pieces of ass than Flair's had titles) and Bradshaw being taken out so Austin is left to get overpowered...or, if they want to do Austin/Flair at the PPV, Austin can get proactive and walk out on the match to leave Flair to take the beating. DTA and all that.
They need to get moving on Brock for the PPV, too. Buh Buh no longer has the belt that Brock opted not to win before and he's their top mid-level face, I guess, so maybe they run into each other tonight.
I hadn't mentioned anything about OVW as a thread in a while, and thought I would pass along my thoughts as to what is happening there. Of course, anyone else who can catch OVW and wants to comment, feel free.
