I'm going to start taping this show. It's the most enjoyable wrestling on television right now.
I may be the only person who loves watching MVP and his ring tights. He may look like a power ranger but at least the purple suit makes him stick out. He was selling great for Kane last night and that phone booth spot was awesome.
Too bad there were two non-title matches on one show. I'm not sure why the U.S. title wasn't up for grabs, even against Tatanka.
The announcers (and the writers) should play up Gregory Helms angle of being the longest reigning champion in WWE more than they do. That was an awesome dropkick he had to start off the match.
Booker T. looked great again, but the highlight for me was when JBL yelled at Cole, "Shut up! Shut up! There is royalty in the presence! Be quiet and let the moment sell itself!"
Batista looks better with a shaved head but he needs to stop his "machine gun" part of his entrance.

I thought they never should've broken up Benjamin and Haas and should've left them on Smackdown. I'd love a Benjamin/Haas vs. London/Kendrick feud. Heck, leave MNM together and you have three really good tag teams.
At least they're using Shelton on Raw though, I was really digging Haas and he's just wasting away right now.
Great type up here, thanks. His 'Fingerpoke of Doom' comment made me laugh: 'sucked people in'?...I just remember thinking that the whole NWO storyline had gone back to square one because they had (clearly) painted themselves into a corner.
