Count me as one of the people who had these two thoughts on the Main Event:

1. They just ruined Kane by taking his mask off
2. They also proved that Kane is not Champion material

I thought RAW blew, big time, with the expcetion of Jericho and Storm. I loved the highlight reel and especially liked Lance's reading of a prepared statement. The dismantling of the set was great and even though they jobbed to the Dudleys, I hope that Storm and jericho stay together and make a run as tag champs.

The comedic possibilities of Storm and Jericho together are awesome. Show them in a club trying to pick up women, show them at a bar hanging out with the guys, renting movies, anything to showcase Jericho's charisma and Storm's understated comedic abilities. Also, they would be a welcome addition to the tag scene, especially now that RVD and Kane a kaput.

It also is a great way for Jericho to give a rub to Storm. Here is a man (Storm) who needs a good storyline (don't they all?) to showcase what he can do, in the ring and on the mic. This could eventually lead to Storm turning on Jericho (when Jericho goes face) and cementing himself as a top non Main Event heel.

I hope they stay together, or else my reasons for watching RAW would dwindle.

You could also include Christian in all of this and have them try to turn Lance Storm into a barrelful of charisma with Jericho talking about his Jericholics (i know im spelling it wrong) and Christian's Peeps and how Storm needs to find a group of his own.

Jericho and Christian were classic together...my favorite thing with those 2 was when they were getting ready to leave the bldg you know, when the dudleyz stole their close and before they found out their clothes were stolen, the exchange went something like....

Jericho: "yeah i am gonna go out tonight and give some girl a dose of Vitamin C"
Christian: yeah, my name begins with C too"
(this is not an exact quote, but if someone could give me the exact quote i would appreciate it)

Classic stuff, those 3 together would be a riot to watch...Y2J could explain that he was so successful with helping Christian that Storm is his next challenge and they do have the whole history of being in the Dungeon together.

So your sole reason for watching a show is the one time tagging of two guys who basically have little in common in WWE?
Hmm..
And you do realise that by getting what you wish a lot of people will be pissed because
1- Jericho needs the title goddamnit and not be stuck as a tag team!
2- WHy do we get comedy on my tv while they could use the time for a hurricane match damnit!
3- gawdamnit we finally have a great team why do they split him up?!

That said, I expect them to use Jericho for a while to bring some life into Storm.
The Highlight Reel is perfect for that sort of stuff imo.



*sigh* Why bother?

dMp,

In response to your points:

-----------------------------------------------------------
So your sole reason for watching a show is the one time tagging of two guys who basically have little in common in WWE?
-----------------------------------------------------------

Last night? Yes it was. I did not find much else worthy of such a hyped up show. It was like waiting on line to see an awesome movie that has been promoted for months and then you see it and there is only like 15 minutes of good stuff int here and the rest is mediocre at best. As for having nothing in common, they did tag up years ago, as the Impact Players, they were both trained by Stu Hart, and they are both Canadian. In the WWE, that makes them almost related.

----------------------------------------------------------
1- Jericho needs the title goddamnit and not be stuck as a tag team!
----------------------------------------------------------

I agree that Jericho SHOULD have the title. But, for now, he will not. Their isno way that Jericho, as a heel, will take it from the #1 heel, HHH. When HHH loses the belt to a face, there will be a return bout also. So, it could be MONTHS or even a YEAR before Jericho gets another title shot. Mind you, if this were my promotion, I'd put the belt on him now.

----------------------------------------------------------
2- WHy do we get comedy on my tv while they could use the time for a hurricane match damnit!
-----------------------------------------------------------

I have no problem with the Hurricane on TV every week. In fact, I am hoping that a feud with Christian for the Intercontinental Title is in the Hurricane's future. However, doesn't the Hurricane rely on comedy too? And wouldn't his interactions with Storm and Jericho be awesome, in addition to their stellar matches?

-----------------------------------------------------------
3- gawdamnit we finally have a great team why do they split him up?!
------------------------------------------------------------

Circle of Life my friend. All good tag teams eventually split. If that wasn't the case, then we would all still be enjoying the awesomeness of Edge and Christian. But alas..

The Impact Players were Storm and Justin Credible. You're thinking of the Thrill Seekers.

Tenken347,

I stand corrected. It didn't sound right when I typed it, now I know why!

Thanks!

Lance Storm already refers to his fans as StormTroopers thru his website but Lucas would probably have an issue with it if it was on RAW

Didn't you think that 4 threads about RAW and Kane were enough, or did you hope this fifth thread would shed some new light on the subject?



Yes, I like HHH! What's so wrong with that?

My post was more about Jericho and Storm. I added my two cents on Kane as a side note.

Are you always this negative and critical, or is it just today?

Yikes.

One person wants more Lance. One person wants more Hurricane. So why not both!? What better way to lighten up Lance than to feud him against the comedic superhero. And yes Chris Jericho and Lance Storm work great together, I've seen some of their promos as the Thrillseekers and they were hilarious....although it was mainly unintended comedy for being so cheesey. But still they work together well. They've done promos together, they've wrestled together, they've even been bouncers together!

Christian is a good addition too, but we've already seen Christian and Storm together, and Christian and Jericho together. I'd rather see Christian get a singles run than Jericho right now.

But even if Lance and Jericho are put in the tag division then there's still hardly anyone good for them to wrestle.

THAT IS AWESOME!

I marked out like crazy when Lance and Hurricane were tagging during the invasion.


"Strength of a Hurricane, Form of an ice Storm"

I have to say, that tag match last night was probably the most exciting match on the show for me. Though the ThrillSeekers lost, they did a great job out there. I was hoping they'd pull out the ol' double team top rope dropkick.

Back to the Hurricane/Storm idea, it would definitely work. You have two great workers who can both be entertaining in their own way. With Booker/Golddust finished and probably Kane and RVD too, RAW could probably use a new unlikely duo. Plus we'd get to see Lance as a face again.

The easy and cheapest way to do that?

Have them go after the Frenchies. Just have Lance talk all about how he's trashed America all this time, but if there's one thing worse...it's the French. Not sure if Lance ever did a promo before during the UnAmericans' days supporting the French, but heck, it's not like the casual fan will remember nor will WWE care if they do or not.

Tell me about it GLJ. HurriStorm team was a great idea. They were getting over with backstage skits of Hurricane wanting Storm to have his power ring at all times "Strength of a Hurricane, Form of an ice Storm"!... How they screwed this up was so telling of what's went wrong with the Invasion and alot of what's wrong with WWE. One match really stood out

The Date, Sep. 23/01. Unforgiven PPV. Opening match, 4 corner elimination match match for the Tag titles. Hurristorm v. Dudleyz (champs) v. Hardyz v. the makeshift team of Spike/BigShow. I predicted HurriStorm, A fresh talented team, getting over, great way to make an impact. But NO... Guess which team got eliminated first? yup HurriStorm and guess who were the last two team remaining? If you guessed Hardy'z & Dudleyz, you'd be correct. With Dudleyz keeping the title.

So we got Hardyz vs. Dudleyz part 243 but this time with Stacy in the Dudleyz corner. That made this feud fresh *rolls eyes*... That Instead of having Hurricane & Storm get the titles and work a program with the Hardyz. That feud if lasted more then a month with HurriStorm jobbing first in the elimination could have been great. The superhero team even had Mighty Molly & Ivory on their side to keep that cheating Lita honest LoL. So much possibilities wasted. But Yay we got to see the 200th chapter of Hardyz vs. Dudleyz play out that fall.

That really was one of those times, that made me scratch my head and wonder if they even have a clue.

I still can't believe that WWE never put Storm a)together with Justin Credible or b)together with Dawn Marie (though I guess there's still time). I know that the Ent doesn't look highly on ECW stuff, but that was gold!

Oliva: You are the weakest link! Goodbye!

Stewie: Ahahaha. Oh God, that's funny. That's really funny. You write your own material? Do you? Because that is so fresh. 'You are the weakest link. Goodbye!' You know I've never heard anyone make that joke before. You're the first. I've never heard anyone reference that outside program before. Because that's what she says on the show, right? Hmmm? 'You are the weakest link. Goodbye!' And ye...ye..yet you've taken it and....and used it out of context to insult me in this everyday situation. What a clever, smart girl you must be. To come up with a joke like that all by yourself. Mmmmm...that's so fresh too. Any Titanic jokes you want to throw at me as long as we're hitting these phenomena at the height of their popularity. Mmmm? Cuz i'm here God you're so funny!

I would probably bet they are holding all the tag team matches (Hart Foundation, Bulldogs, Road Warriors, Midnites, RnR's etc) for one big DVD release. But, I guess that means we also get a Killer B's match as well.
