Mark Jindrak, who is now back as a heel, and Kurt's buddy again, said to Sharmell T he also likes bestiality. Booker was not amused. I learned at a young age you should never bring your girlfriend, let alone your wife, backstage at a wrestling show.

~So is Morgan's stuttering gimmick dead(er) now? ~The Angle-Booker storyline reeks of desperation. ~Maybe Jindrak will one day top Big Show's heel-turn record, if he doesn't get sent packing first. Or is it Luger's? ~Who the F is Delirious? ~Orlando Jordan, the most underwhelming US Champ in the history of the belt. ~Couldn't they at least have had Haas beat one of MNM for the title shot? ~Again tag teams are shown where they rank on the WWE food chain.
~Overall seems like a pretty bland, paint by numbers with really ugly shades, show.

Let's hope so. From everything I read about his tenure in OVW, he wasn't great in his ring, but his promos and size were going to make him a star.
~The Angle-Booker storyline reeks of desperation.
And there's no reason that it has to be like that. It's not like, under normal circumstances, these guys couldn't put together a damn fine wrestling match. I'm all for making Angle more of a comedy guy, but I didn't have designs on him making offhanded comments about bestiality.
~Maybe Jindrak will one day top Big Show's heel-turn record, if he doesn't get sent packing first. Or is it Luger's?
I think Kane may be going for the record, too. I don't know why they would turn Jindrak back so quickly. Then again, I had no clue why they would turn him face in the first place. I thought that he was best used in a tag team with Luther Reigns, but I guess taht wasn't to be.
~Who the F is Delirious?
I think he works in ROH.
~Orlando Jordan, the most underwhelming US Champ in the history of the belt.
I don't know why they'd give him the belt if they weren't going o push him at all. I'd like to see Rey get the belt and have that for him and Eddie to feud over.
~Couldn't they at least have had Haas beat one of MNM for the title shot?
That was exactly what I was thinking. I think Haas has some real potential, but he's criminally underused. And besides, Bob Holly pinning one-half of MNM is just plain wrong.
~Again tag teams are shown where they rank on the WWE food chain.
And it's a shame. But I think that bringing up MNM and the Hearthrobs has led to some new life in the tag team ranks. It won't be overnight, but I think that WWE is on their way to rebuilding the Tag ranks back to respectability.

Worse than One Man Gang? David Flair? My least-favorite wrestler of all time, Hacksaw Jim Duggan?
We'll have a new candidate for this list if Heidenreich wins on Sunday.
Looks like a rare match-heavy edition of Smackdown....six bouts is much more than their usual lineup of three, even though a couple of these look like squashes.
So there I am, in Sri Lanka, formerly Ceylon, at about 3 o'clock in the morning, looking for one thousand brown M&Ms to fill a brandy glass, or Ozzy wouldn't go on stage that night. So, Jeff Beck pops his head 'round the door, and mentions there's a little sweets shop on the edge of town. So - we go. And - it's closed. So there's me, and Keith Moon, and David Crosby, breaking into that little sweets shop, eh. Well, instead of a guard dog, they've got this bloody great big Bengal tiger. I managed to take out the tiger with a can of mace, but the shopkeeper and his son... that's a different story altogether. I had to beat them to death with their own shoes. Nasty business, really, but sure enough I got the M&Ms, and Ozzy went on stage and did a great show.--- Del Preston
personally i'd take the Christian/Booker T match and the HHH/Flair match on Raw as an anti-point to your idea that Raw lacks great matches, but then again i've been wanting the Cruisers on Raw, much like you BW, since the brand split.
