Will since Vince has taken a page from Steve Jobs and starting a civil war with his own company, Which show would you rather support, SD or RAW?

I like the RAW roster because I feel Flair got the better deal with the NWO,Undertaker, and Austin, new setup and I do not care for The Rock.

just letting thoughts out.

As I watched last night's RAW I thought to myself how it would have been so much more interesting if they "did" build this up as a WWF Civil War. Instead of a draft they could have whole shows leading with people picking sides, maybe even a real vitrolic promo by Vince talking about why he has to "secede" from the World Wrestling Federation, and taking one WWF title belt with him. Right now, I don't get that sense of competition between brands that they want. An insurrection scenerio would do the trick I think.



What makes HHH the "undisputed WWF champion" if no one was ever disputing it in the first place?

Just don't hire Ken Burns to direct, or each show will turn into a voice-over fest of letters. Imagine the fear of hearing THIS..........

"Dear Daddy,

When are you going to let me back on TV? I promise I won't screech so loud that garage doors all over America are opening and closing at the speed of light.

Your baby girl,
Stephanie McMahon"

I still say bring back Russo at least to RAW, he can do no worse than the "VOICE OF DOOM". If you don't want to look at the man than the WWF should just put a bag on his head.

Raw's got more potential to be a new individual group, as SmackDown just seems like regular WWF with a few guys missing. So I'm pulling for Raw.

Two things:

1- Don't EVER mock Ken Burns dammit, or there will be beatdowns being distributed like Halloween candy! Not only did his documentaries rock the house, but he's the only man who can make the fifth Beatle look work!

2- One side has the NWO, UT, and Kane. The other has Rock, Angle, Benoit, and Jericho. I think the choice is clear for me on this one. Though even with that roster I must say I was not impressed by what I read about the coming SD this week.



"You used it to shove your miserable daughter down our throats week in and week out...not anymore!" - Ric Flair gives me hope, Raw 3/18/02

"I thought it was cool how HHH just tossed Jericho out of the ring and made him vanish, possibly into another dimension, at the end of the match." - Dr. Unlikely says the funniest thing I've ever read on Wienerville.

    They may have rocked the house, but they weren't terribly accurate. In his world, everyone who fought in the Civil War was not only literate, but eloquent, and white people never played any jazz music, ever.

    But I may be biased. I had to spend a month listening to him one evening back when I was videotaping lectures. Also: That's not a "fifth Beatle" look, it's an "Oasis wannabee" look. :-)

I agree the Civil War, while not so much inaccurate was far from complete. However, as a primer for people who have never been into American History it was fabulous. It was that which jumpstarted me into the subject and made it real enough for me to want to learn more about. Sure, it seems less impressive after you read the Shelby Foote 3 volume set, but to fully cover the subject would take 110 hours, not 11.

And come on, he had that hair when the Gallaghers were still just beating each other up in their mother's basement! :)

I'm not supportive of either brand. The reason is that it doesn't make sense to have WWF champ and WWF women's champ available to both brands, while the other titles only get defended on their shows.

I'm sure this thread had already been done sometime in the past, but, being a newbie.....I never saw it. Anyways, who do you think has (or had) the best ring entrance music? And, while we're at it...the worst?
