TKG: Lawler being unable to respond to Ross' comment " If you had a sixteen year old daughter you'd feel differently". C'mon Ross he's had plenty of sixteen year old daughters.
WHAT DIDN'T WORK:
PAS: I guess the WWF got both Chyna and Sable in Playboy so they are the masters of getting she-males over as sex symbols. Kind of makes sense that when Hogan's man faced daughter's career stalls a bit, he gets back on TV.
TKG: Big Show stuck tagged with Kane against Schnitsky and Edge. Damnit they traded Jindrak over to this show why are we stuck still watching Kane and Schnitsky.
PAS: Man first Juventud comes out in a lawn mower with a inflatable Corona bottle and now Chavo denounces his Mexicaness. Did Stephanies maid steal her earings or something?
TKG: Who is "Embarased by his heritage" Chavo going to feud with on the all Aryan show? Is Cena going to call him out? Cena rapping about Chavo selling out by having good diction I guess might be amusing. You can't work o'fay Shelton as a face vs. wannabe Chavo. Someone needs to rent School Daze: if you're gonna book a wannabe heel, you need the jiggaboo face.
TKG: Poor poor Viscera. What did he do to deserve getting stuck working these turds. I thought getting rid of Grenier meant I was going to get to start seeing Mabel against decent workers. Boy was I wrong. I guess he could work face vs. Chavo....but I don't know. He dated Lillian Garcia. she may be a shade darker than most AKA's but still.
TKG: I have to watch both a Highlight Reel and a Cabana? Aw fuck I'd rather see current Missy doing Missy's Manor. That Highlight Reel really made me miss Sylk the Shokker. HOOTTIE HOO!!!!
PAS: Is Bruce Pritchard still around, maybe we could get a Rio's Roundup.
TKG: Dupree vs. Venis was best match on this show and really felt like they might have a really good match that they can build to. But given what both are capable of this was disappointing. I hope they are eventually given more time and have a match I can put on the top.
PAS: I don't remember Venis stuffing his trunks before, but he clearly stuck a Kielbasa down there to work Dupree. This whole show kind of felt booked by Russo, maybe Venis and Dupree will feud with the Hotshots.
TKG: What the fuck was that thing Michaels was attempting to do? The Eddie reversal of the Angle Slam into a DDT? Thats one of the worst DDTs I've ever seen. I mean Jimmy Garvin had a nice DDT...how hard is it to execute a DDT??? Michaels also should never do the Hogan pose off. HOLY SHIT, MEAN GENE SUPERKICKED HOGAN!!!!
I was busy getting the garage in order after the long weekend (unpacking from camping, taking out the garbage/recyclables, etc.) so I had this on in he background (yes, I have a tv in my garage) and occasionally would plop myself down and watch it. The Hogan interview was "eh", only cuz I really don't give a shit about his reality series. Carlito was funny, tho. Now, when the show started, I knew that Carlito was interviewing Hogan, but when I saw the graphic for the Highlight Reel, my thoughts had something to do with how much talking was going to be happening this week. At least they didn't show HHH in the opening graphics, so they had THAT going for them. I also really don't mind Hogan being on my screen for a little while as each and every time "Real American" hits, I still get goosbumps. Yes, I was a little Hulkamaniac. Shut up. Also, for some reason, about halfway thru the main event, I had this creepy feeling that Michaels was going to turn on Hogan. Don't ask me why, but I knew it was going to happen. Can you imagine a tag team of HBK and Angle? I just shit my pants. I also dug Cena's interview. This guy should have been on Raw a looooooong time ago where he could have free reign on the mic. He may have a ways to go in the ring but the guy is gold behind the stick. The rest of Raw? Sorry, I was busy cleaning, but apparently it wasn't interesting enough to catch my interest. Side note, I happened to catch Velocity this weekend, and they had a GREAT interview with Piper. It was off of the "Greatest Wrestlers Of The 80's" dvd and talked about how he started, WM1 and the hatred he and Mr. T had for each other. man, he had NOTHING good to say about him. I laughed. Intersting note, while showing clips from his matches, they did NOT blur out the old WWF symbol.
Did anyone else notice that the crowd was actually cheering while Chavo was making racist comments?
I guess WWE fans really are racist rednecks.

Actually, I think going from WCW to WWF, period, was the same thing. In February of 2001, I attended my first WWF live show. I had been to numerous WCW shows, including several PPVs. But the WWF house show seemed just as important as the WCW PPVs.
