Why did Trips and Flair waste time doing a beatdown on Hurricane?? If anything, they should have tipped the superhero of Kane's past, and let Hurricane hash it out with Kane about it, keeping their hands clean. That would be very treacherous, anmd could create compelling TV, not unlike Foley lashing at the Rock over a perceived slight. It would be like Othello and the recent Wesley saga on Angel all wrapped into one storyline.
"Business has just picked up" says JR. Then right on cue, Molly enters the arena! Never was JR any better in introducing someone. --Raw 7/15
Because they might have worked it out and then Kane would have had a partner for TLC and would have been less likely to get injured, thus negating HHH's hopes that Kane would be hurt in the TLC match, thus negating their match at No Mercy.
And besides, why would Hurricane believe HHH/Flair, who are known to be big liars in the first place?
Since everyone else is doing it (ok, not EVERYONE, but...)
Vikings (0-4) - Bye weeks are boring (round 2) Badgers (5-1) - Congrats to Penn State. Time to rethink our defense. Twins (0-0) - 'Tis a new season! Really scary finish though... Buffy 7.2 earns a 8.8 Out of 10 for being the funniest episode since "Tabula Rasa" and without the dramatic ending. It might even have scored higher if my UPN's audio didn't cut out and I didn't have to watch it in closed captioning...
You know what would be really funny? Have someone write up a recap in Shakespearian-type language.
"Forsooth, Booker T, yon varlet hath challenged ye to a contest of strength within the squared circle. Willist thou accept?
"Indeed I shall, good Coach. For yonder Jericho is like a uneducated dog, never knowing his betters and calling himself the true king. Verily shall I teach him the errors of his ways. And to him, I utter my battle cry: Has thou understanding now...SUCKAAAAAA!"
Ok, so it's not very good. Still, it would be incredibly better than this murder angle will likely end up being. And why do they need Bautista? They're already misusing the people they've got, and taking away the intercontinental championship. I think Bishoff just wants a Brock of his very own.
Triple H is a dead ringer for "Buzzer" of the Dreadnoks. Just give him some mirror shades and teach him to say "Blimey, Zartan".
So the Rumble is under a week away, and the last Raw before it has just finished... So who are the confirmed entrants for the Royal Rumble, as far as we know? In theory, all of Raw's announced entrants should be known, and a good chunk of Smackdown's.
