Well, since Hall and Nash left, and only Hogan stayed behind, presumably to call out the Rock, I don't think they'll cost HHH anything tonight.
And for my obligatory Mr. Perfect worship, that was about the best reaction to Kane's pyro I ever saw. He bumped like a madman too. Pretty damn good for a 3 minute Raw match. And at least Austin didn't run in and nail him with a chair this time.
No matter how bad things may get, just imagine what would happen if Vince Russo was booking again, and you will feel better.
Man Raw has sucked. Austin arrested? Never seen that before. Hardys are off TV for a month they do nothing new no nothing same stale act. Rematch of Angle-HHH after they faced each other night before with same stips. Wcw did same crap, and people cried about it. People not me paid to see that match last night. Here's the end of show calling it now NWO beat on Rock Austin runs in NWO retreats. Perfect jobs to Kane? Last week they show a vignette of him cheating hello the gimmick is about being perfect not cheating. This week he jobs to a guy whose career has been dead for a couple of years now.
This could be big later. Remember last year where the "Rocky Sucks" fans were out in bunches during the Austin feud? Do you think we could have more Hogan fans then Rocky fans at Wrestlemania? How much "tweaking" will they have to do to the crowd noise on Smackdown after tonight?

Damn, why's everyone so negative? That last segment was great, all of it. Not just the promo, but the beatdown as well. It's something we never thought we'd ever see and everyone has to trash it right away. Damn.
"Damn you Rock-Em Sock-Em Robots! Can't we all just get along?"
Really hot crowd in Chi-town tonight. But I do think they had a little trouble figuring out who to cheer for. Don't returning guys almost automatically become faces? I know they are acting all heelish, beating up Austin and now the Rock, but the fans love them. As a side note, the Rock has gotten the crap kicked out of him lately. 2nd time in his last 2 free tv appearances he has ended up in the ambulance. Maybe it will finally be the Rock's Wrestlemania....

I got chills, too. That's the only time in two years (besides the ECW reformation and Lawler's return) that I marked out. That may have been the coolest thing ever. God, I hate The Rock. How sweet it was to see him get the Razor's Edge, the Jack Knife and then the leg drop. This is cool stuff. Wrestlemania will RULE.

Sorry, false alarm. Meltzer says Australia IS still on. Also, Ric Flair is contractually "linked" with Hogan as part of the Aussie deal, so it is actually quite likely that Flair is IN for TNA. I get the impression that Hogan (and Flair's)
