Didn't we just see Ross lose his job? They're not even waiting to recycle their storylines anymore. It's probably for the best since I apparently the Rock is the only one who knows the first name of who Ross called "the man known only as Goldberg" afterwards.
I thought it made more sense to just call him Nash. He can BE Diesel without the name.
Man, this show was as comedy-segment heavy as it was wrestling-heavy, wasn’t it.
You ever notice a flaw in your windshield…your television…your monitor? Once you focus on it, you can’t stop starting at it? I experienced this during Nowinski’s dick…I mean…promo…
Kane: “I found this stinky skunk…I took it to my basement…” I need to work that line into office conversation.
Missed opportunity of the night: JR asks King to describe Goldberg in two words. What Lawler should have said: “Overrated”. Not only would it have been a great heel response, they could have argued over whether or not “overrated” is one or two words..
Well, it’s official. My favorite part about the Rock/Goldberg feud: CHRISTIAN
LANCE STORM GETS TWO SEGMENTS and an awesome top-rope variation on the Van Terminator! That was equally as cool as Morely selling that sick landing he took on his head.

Decent show, yea wasn't it like 2 months ago Ross lost his job. Ugh...repeat...Kevin Nash is back as the hybrid Diesel Nash or even Kevin Diesel *LOL* Well, I liked it over all. Glad I didn't have to watch Steiner for more than about 5 or 10 minutes.
1) Haven't we alrady seen Austin and Jim Ross quit and/or get fired a number of times already? Its done let the angle go.
2) So is Nash Diesel? Diesel music..Nash name...Titan tron said Nash..so i guess Nash..so why the jet black hair? I guess for once i was right months ago, i said Nash would come back as Kein Nash but wiht Diesel gimmick and everyone i knew said i was wrong and were 100% certain Nash was coming back as Diesel for sure.
3) So Booker T can beat HHH every week (including tonight) but some how can't win when the title is on the line, and at the biggest ppv no less.
4)I knew when Y2J was moving up the latter again and they stick him with HHH i knew Y2J would be the one taking the beatings for him. I hate that. Y2J should be kicking HHH's ass.
I was so worried I'd have to go a full week without The Hurricane gracing my television screen and was... still a little dissapointed that he came out to only get beaten down. Of course thats a minor complaint as I did think the show was good in general. Good to see Nash come back and not reinjure himself as so many bastards here wanted to see. Once again Booker gets a pin on HHH but it still feels a little hollow. Anyhoo, good show, so no big complaints.
Agggh...not a great show by any means. I found myself mostly bored through the whole thing. Even Jazz/Trish was surprisingly sloppy. My only highlight of the whole show was Rock/Goldberg. I'm digging this so far.
Did anyone else cringe every time Nash threw up the big boot, waiting for his leg to give out? I know I did. I haven't seen him back in the ring, guys, but from this show, it ain't looking good.
...and a Fasion Report, too. C'mon, at least read a sentence.
Puppies, in red sparkly bodysuit and tranchcoat, wearing the belt, vs. Jazz, in golden sparkly jungle-warrior ourfit. Trish bleeds-bad end=Nice match.
Hey, let's soak-up the positive energy of a stinky skunk. Man, that's funny. But drugs are no laughing matter, kids.
Hmm, Jazz and Rodney Mack together?
Hey, doesn't the Women's Champ even get a dressing room? Rocky gets shot down - I feel your pain, man. But shot down in favor of Jeff? Pathetic - I feel your pain, man.
Rob, in black singlet with crotch-eatin' dragon, carrying the belt, vs. Chief, in black "Chief" undies. Nice match.
Too much salt and too much flour in my sauce made for a disturbing supper. Fortunately I had plenty of mushrooms in the sauce.
JR, in black hat, and King, in purple/bold shirt, blab.
SPP, in chainmail and black "Freakzilla" tshirt and trunks, vs. Harvard, in red "H" undies w. little lightning bolts and clear facemask. Steiner says "Sucks to your First Ammendment rights." Um, no match?
It's Goldberg-Taker! He's got his own FOOTAGE!
Christian! sits under Rocky's leaning tree. Born-again Christian - ha! Jeff kisses a girl and all the little teenies cry.
Rocky, in black "The Rock" crotch brahma-bull undies, vs. Jeff, in glow-in-the-dark paint and white pants w. white hanky. Nice match. Never fear that Jeff uses a closed fist. Smart Milwaukee fans cheer Rocky.
Goldberg-Taker is walking. In black Harley jacket and shirt, Damn Stockingcap, and black pants, just kinda stands there.
Kevin, in straps'n spandex, carrying the belt, vs. Dudleys, in "3D" tops. Okay match. But can you really still call it the "Money Shot" now that he's not Val?
Goldie/Test/Stacie. Again I laugh.
Bischoff-stin, in a "What" vest (hey, did he loose weight?) AGAIN picks on JR. They don't beep "bitch". Yay, JR's gone (again).
Goldie, in wig and long, flowing robe (which I want) and black/gold latex, vs. Stevie, in pink "SR" full-cuts, with Jezebel, in black. King can't call a match so Coach comes out. And they don't beep "pissed". Victoria has a total breakdown. Okay match.
Jericho, in purple "Jericho" trunks, and Thhhor, in red Iron Cross undies, wearing the belt, with Whoo!, vs. Booker, in white undies, and Shawn, in studded red/black gear. Shutup, Lawler. Good match. Hurricane makes the save? No, Nash...slowly...walks down for his "run-in". (I can't figure-out what his shirt says - dang crazy font)
Overall: In ring was entertaining, talking segments were fine. I was entertained this evening. So, now how many times (in storylines) has JR been fired and/or quit?
Fashion Reporter Extraordinare
Do you know where your Chainmail, +1 vs. Cruiserweights is?
Somewhere, Trish Stratus is probably still bleeding. Damn, man. I don't remember seeing what started the bleeding, but it looked rough.
The GIANT RED X in the opening montage gave me a chuckle. As did the part of JR's segment where he shoved the microphone into Bischoff's chest, it gave an electronic squeal, and Bischoff shook like he'd been zapped with static electricity. I don't know whether it was supposed to do that or not, but heh, that was pretty neat.
As one would have expected, RVD vs. Morley was a First Guy to Land a DDT Wins match. And it looks like RVD's re-expanding his movelist again; that German Suplex was rather freeeeesh. [/Butlertron]
They're French! And they're evil! They're the evil French! I know I'm intimidated!
It was pretty lame tonight, but still there in very small quantity, so: twoooooo.
He's Big Big Big and he's Nash Nash Nash! Big Nash! Big Nash! Thrill as he very slowly makes his way to the ring, Chris Jericho and Ric Flair throw themselves around for him, and Booker T mysteriously disappears entirely!
God, I love the Rock. I don't know if I've mentioned that recently. Man. Welcome to the Jungle better be really, really good to warrant taking him away from this. Who else got a kick out of him glaring at the "ROCK PEES SITTING DOWN" sign and then miming taking his dick out of his pants and unrolling it to reveal an exaggerated three-foot-long superdick? Come on, you did and you know it. The Rock's a million times better now just by concentrating all his attention on the fans' reactions. It's brilliant to watch. I am in awe. Superdick! Now he only needs to learn how to pretend that he's tired or hurt after a match.
I think Christopher Nowinski actually turned face tonight. It's the first time I can ever recall my mom (who was grading papers in the next room) actually being interested enough to ask me who a particular wrestler was.
The following post expresses the opinions of a raving Jerichoholic. He is biased, opinionated and bitter. You have been warned.
My thoughts with this Raw lie very much in the negative. Booker gets another meaningless win, Jericho gets his ass handed to him again, Steiner spits on everything that I personally stand for and gets a verbal blowjob for it and I have to listen to Coach. And I have to recap it! It'll be up by the end of business hours tomorrow.

The following is according to WWE logic that states Scott Steiner symbolizes the USA.
So America is a vulgar, obscene, bloated, drug infested, shell of its former self?
Moving right along ... Jacques Rougeau ought to be brought back as the manager of the Frenchies. For anyone else who's seen OVW, Rene Dupree is so far from ready to be on live TV.
Diesel Blues just doesn't translate to 2003. And Kevin Nash did look like Al Snow's older, slower brother.
I dug the dilusional Victoria looking for her Women's Title. Dust off the old belt stealing angle where she takes it from Trish and starts intimidating Lillian into announcing her as the Women's Champion.
I don't remember seeing what started the bleeding, but it looked rough.
Jazz was in the corner, and Trish came running towards her, and Jazz brought up her elbow to counter. Trish must have caught too much of it (obviously).

You mean you're not filled w/ hope at the obvious money feud that is HHH/Nash? Or the Nash title reign where fans will be fighting to be 1st in line to empty their wallets? Or where Book & Jericho get scuttled back to the midcard?

Surprise matches can always be made into great feuds. Why the hell do you need a "build-up" before the first match in a feud? That is silly- feuds in wrestling make sense more often if it is based on what happened in the ring.
