What Worked

PAS: Gail Kim and Lita was alot of fun. Kim has a bunch of nifty leg take downs and I am amused at her thousands of submissions. I have the IWAMS joshi tourney on the way and I am guessing this will be better then the worst match on that show. Gail, that fake tan doesn't make you look cute, it just makes you look Cambodian.

TKG: Victoria now comes in to a really second rate Oaktown 3-5-7's tune, and Kim gets to come out to TAtU. Why is TAtU heel music? Apparently one of them is now pregnant. I'm guessing Stephen Stills. So Lita won't do the STO anymore. But between Gail with the takedowns and the Striker lock and Lita with the abortionist kicks to midsection and the nasty clothesline, plus Gail's great take of the DDT...how could you not dig this. Didn't really understand having Lita going over when they've been building Gail vs. Victoria for a while now, but I guess it sets up the four way...really makes all the earlier booking seem meaningless.

PAS: Batista motherfucker Batista.

TKG: You know I remember when Shelton Benjamin was a tag wrestler...Wow, has he now "developed" the upperbody of a WWE singles wrestler. Batista vs. Benjamin smokes Benjamin vs. Orton from last week. Batista goes over, and he has no match on the PPV. Why does Batista have no PPV match. Bane has a match and Batista doesn't, what the fuck.

PAS: Hey A-Train is back. That match was alot of fun, as it was kind of a poor mans Jericho v. Mark Henry. I have no idea why they don't stick A-Train back with Trish, if this match was given 11 minutes on PPV it might be the best thing on the show.

TKG: A_TRAIN. CHOOO-CHOO. Its about fucking time. Hey Gail goes into PPV jobbing on RAW, Benjamin goes into PPV jobbing to Batista...but A-Train can't go over. Why must they waste A-Train when he should be leading the K1 Army vs. NJ. A-Train/Jan Nortje vs. Yoshie/Tanahashi could be off the hook.

PAS: I didn't really care for the Hip-hop hippo part of Albert's career, but I would like to see him do the Ernesto Hoost dance.

TKG: A-Train worked a fake Mongolian gimmick in Mass pre WWE. I could see Dolgorsuren Sumiyabazar being offended by the minstrelsy.

PAS: I was shocked at how much better Beniot v. La Resistance 2 on 1 was, then the tag last week. Edge really does stink. Of course Beniot gets beat down by two comedy undercarders, while Michaels wastes Batista and Orton 2 on 1 after a 20 minute match. I enjoyed the Beniot v. Kane parts of the six man match, but it really did fall apart when it became a tag.

TKG: They do Anti-Canadian heat when La Resistance is working Benoit???? Its La Resistance, why can't the world champ beat them two on one. Everyone else in the fed has beat them two on one.

TKG: The only matwork in WWE wrestling is executed by women or a guy working a retard gimmick. Eugene does his tribute to Rip Rogers finisher and this match is better than last weeks Raw.

What Didn't Work

TKG: Where is Palumbo?

PAS: Man was Orton v. Michaels a textbook example of a shitty long masturbatory Michaels match. It is amusing to watch Michaels selling a bodypart, as he will sell his arm like it can't move when Orton is on offense and then utterly ignore it when he goes on offense, then Orton cuts him off and bang the arm hurts again. Man for an endless feud between two lovers HHH v. Michaels is such a cut rate Peggy Lee Leather v. Bambi. No way is their PPV main cage match going to be as good as the WOW PPV main event.

TKG: No comparison, Bambi and Leather both have better strikes, sell better, take bigger bumps and lay out matches smarter.There were a couple nice parts to this as I liked Orton's selling. But that went too fucking long and fell apart, was messy at points and most of work was meaningless. So smoked by Maven vs. Stevie Richards. Maven sells for entire match and Maven has more offense than Michaels. Speaking of offense, since when does HBK have a Thesz Press? Were those supposed to be Thesz Presses? That's the only thing I could figure they were. If they were Thesz Presses they were the worst Thesz Presses I've ever seen. And I watched indy wrestling in the 90s where every fake Stone Cold did nothing but Thesz Presses and stunners. Michaels really needs to drop the Thesz press out of his arsenal. Not only can't he execute them but they remind you of what a great Thesz press Tommy Rich has. Michaels really blades well. But he doesn't want to remind anyone of Tommy Rich cause then even that comes off looking second rate. Fucking Maven had a better match than this turd.

PAS: Man where's Bubba pointing to the sky and firing Test, Foley, Shamrock and Big Show.

It's great to see Train back. To bad this is how they decide to use him. At least he got to display a lot of his power offesne and he really worked the ribs of Jericho well in the time that he had to work them in. It's a shame to see a guy that size tap to such a crappy looking Boston Crab, though. Why isn't Jericho leaning into that more? Jericho better have some working boots on come Sunday if he wants his match to Tomko to come out as solid as this.

I'm absolutely LOVING Batista these days. He's everything a big man should be: He has the look, he's improving constantly in the ring, and he's getting face reactions in spite of being a heel. Me no understand why he isn't getting pushed more. He's not that bad on the mic either. Unless Benjamin's going over on Sunday, and Batista's next in line for the IC title.

No shit. The world champ can't beat a tag team made up of Jean-Claude Van Damme and Greta Van Susteren's kid brother, but Michaels can easily knock out half of the dominant heel stable in the federation?

He looked like a real-life Eugene who finally had enough of a schoolyard bully and rushed him during a kickball game.

They always screw Batista over, he hasn't had a singles match on PPV since his comeback from injury last year except for the one with Michaels in December. It's especially retarded now that he's the best of the four of them and people are actually interested in what he's doing.
