I don't think they've gone so far as even announcing any matches for the show, and it seems more like something that might fly under the radar, but yeah, 11:30 PM! maybe it'll be worth watching.

If you're taping it, keep in mind that there'll be a Stanley Cup game tonight which could go pretty long if there's any overtime. I'm sure they'll air all 90 minutes of the show, but it might not start at the planned time (except on the West Coast).

the way things are going to the NHL, NBC would probably shuttle OT to Versus again as to not interrupt the 11:00 news and then SNME.

It seemed to start about 10 minutes late, I was too busy watching basketball to notice exactly.

My highlight of the show was Finlay cracking Boogeyman over the head with his cane and mocking his little shimmy.

If you missed the first 10 minutes, you didn't miss much. Khali squashed Cena in a really quick match in which Cena got almost zero offense and Khali dazzled him with his amazing array of wrestling maneuvers (clubbing blows, JUDO CHOP~!, tree slam, and...well...that's it, really). This match not only failed to sell me on One Night Stand's main event, but it might have actually turned people off to buying the PPV. It was really bad.

I got home in time for the last five minutes and they were kind enough to do a video recap of the entire show (a la the end of Wrestlemania).

Weird, but appreciated.

Anyway I can get a .gif of Finlay's dance over Boogeyman? That was pure gold.

I turned it off after Mark Henry came down. They followed up a Khali-Cena squash with Mr. Henry. Yuck.

And the whole thing wasn't broadcast in HD which made me want to change channels anyway.

This show was pretty uneventful, except for Finley's dance. But 4 seconds cannot save a 90 minute show. Even though they have a lot of injuries on the roster, it still seemed like this sow could have been better, especially as a selling point for this PPV. Instead, it probably will cost them buys. Maybe they didn't expect much from ONS anyway?

I'm not saying that's good wrestling or anything and this isn't meant as an offense to FALSE or support of Khali, but for a guy that big and "strong," -- clubbing blows and judo chops to the head ARE amazing wrestling maneuvers.

Go find someone that big in real life, with hands/finger-span about as big as a dinner plate, and have them punch you square in the face. Then come back and tell everyone how unrealistic it looked and felt.

That suspension of disbelief excuse only seems to come into play when it's people we like.



It's just a message board, people. Chill out.

Cena does a pretty good job of making Khali's shitty offense look good.

The problem with a SNME, is that they stuck to the tradition of running the card in reverse, main event first - to hopefully grab an audience that will stick around for the rest of the show. Only the main event programs are fairly stagnant at the moment. And when they took out the anti-Cena chants in post-production, it only made it appear that the crowd is sitting on their hands for your top guy. (It's not that I think Cena's that bad, I'm just tired of the 'underdog overcomes impossible odds' story getting told over and over. And I was tired of it at least six months ago.)

As on Friday, the highlight was Finlay & Co. - and while I don't know, I wouldn't be at all surprised to find out that Fit is laying out the matches himself. As an old WCW fan, I was glad to see him make it back to active duty a couple of years ago.. but I never remembered Finlay being as awesome as he's been in this run.

If you missed out, and have a chance to see it - seek out the Hornswoggle/Li'l Boogey match from SmackDown, I found it astonishingly entertaining, and then they throw in psychology last night, building on the hat bit from Friday. And Finley's joie de vivre through all this insanity is just the right note, I think. I really hope they don't split these two up in the draft*.

* Barring Finlay getting a deserved shot at a World Title program.

So THAT'S why Doink and Viscera were in the "main event", I was confused there for a second.

Finlay is fucking AWESOME. Between the little Irish jig with Hornswoggle and the dance over the downed Boogeyman, he looks like he's having the time of his life out there, and I dig that about him!
