...You know, the more I think about this, the more it PISSES ME OFF that this nWo crap was so underwhelming. WHY OH WHY do you hire three retards who pee on everything they come into contact with, can't work, already killed one promotion, and aren't any better draws than Rock (who by the way keeps getting shit on by the WWF but I digress) and Austin and Triple H if they are just going to run around like it ain't no thang? What was the point of the ten promos a show for two weeks hyping the nWo? You'd think nobody in the WWF locker room had heard until they ran into them backstage. This is not the end, this is not armageddon, this is another day at the freaking office, stupid ass bookers. It's the same gay garbage they did with the Invasion, where there ist his momentous angle and oh ho hum tra la tra la. There were TWO whole weeks of the gay ass Invasion where it was treated as the big deal it was, but otherwise it was crap, and this is starting off the same way. WHY target only Austin, why not jack Jericho as well? Jericho could at least try to fight back, I know he's a whiny coward but come on how else is the angle going to get over, if the angle is, in fact, the nWo trying to kill the WWF as I've heard. Wouldn't Jericho want to prevent that? Wouldn't oh ALL THE WRESTLERS want to prevent that? What the fuck.
I was thinking earlier today that the WCW purchase fucked up the WWF beyond repair, because they were motoring along just fine with Austin, Rock, Angle, Triple H, Jericho, and Benoit as the best collection of main event talent I can ever recall, and yeah in April and May it was crippled by injuries and stupid ass mummy movies, but there was still potential. I can't imagine the things they could have accomplished over the summer without spending so much wasteful time on retarded faction wars that they never consistently put over. I mean they took a huge risk at WrestleMania by STUPIDLY turning Austin as Rock was on his way out (and then not following it up with a HHH face turn) and then they pissed any blowoff for that away when it turned out, to the shock of absolutely no one, that an Austin heel turn was a STUPID IDEA. Such a roll of awesome was bent over and raped by retarded booking and stupid ass angles and gay ass WCW.
And now there's another last ditch opportunity, which is pretty much a last resort considering the hesistancy most in the WWF seemed to have about hiring these guys. So you'd think with this last resort the WWF would go all out and try to book it as best they can, but instead it's more halfass crap and again it will fail and maybe they can hire Goldberg by then and fuck that up as well until finally ten years later they realize they have the fucking Rock and fucking Austin and do something with it because this pillaging of WCW's ashes is getting them nowhere, but I figure by the time they realize that they never really followed up on the biggest show in WWF history the principles will be forty-five years old and retired.
Where do you live in Seattle? I just moved from MN to Bothell. Regarding the heat, I definitely concur. I grew up in Texas where is was hot and humid as hell. Then after 6 years in SoCal, I definitely got spoiled and lost my resistance to it.
