Why does anyone care what Triple H says or does at this point? He is completely played out as a character, and this storyline sucks. So he addressed the trunk being lefted... so the hell what? All that did was make Kane look even more stupid.

...really. Look, weren't we pissing and moaning that there was no continuity in the writing? And not only did they address the trunk issue, but they also mentioned that Kane's nards were too charred to be of any use! Probably one of the few times people want to remember X-Pac.
Sure, they probably could have done something bigger, but who says these things have to take so long? I mean, really, just how would you propose that they go about addressing the trunk, and when? Why in the hell would they talk on Smackdown about something like that happening on Raw? And would they mention it on Heat? Yay, it only took them six days instead of seven. The child-safety lock story is plausible, and actually makes sense. So what, exactly, were they supposed to do with the time? Think of other ways to put HHH over everyone? They've got more important things to do with their time, like write the other two hours and seven minutes of the show.
I dunno... maybe I'm just annoyed because I enjoyed the opening segment, and a lot of people here just piss and moan about the usual HHH stuff. (Then again, I think I did give my props in the Raw thread. )
If it were WCW, I don't think they would have said anything about it the next week. They would have just played it off that HHH had been in the car trunk all week and was just getting out now.
The WWE writers/producers saw the trunk fly open at the end of last week's RAW, realized they had made an error and explained what happened this week. That's what a good company would have done.
About the only thing they could have done differently was pre-tape the segment so that the trunk wouldn't have flown open in the shot. But really, if you were filming it, would you think that would happen.
Give credit where credit is due, the WWE took a potential lemon and made...well, something sort of equivalent but a little below lemonade out of it. Watered down lemonade. Yeah.
I should have listened to spf2119 about HHH because he is the smartest Wiener around.
Since everyone else is doing it (ok, not EVERYONE, but...)
Vikings (2-5) - It's time to sweep! 11-5 baby! (Okay, maybe not.) Badgers (6-3) - Well, we won one. Thanks for playing poorly Michigan State! Buffy 7.5 earns a 9 out of 10 because Anya is really damn cool this season. The flashbacks were funny (another musical, Joss?). The continuity from past seasons was tremendous, and just about everything else clicked for me. Plus! Barely any Dawn!
A few years ago they're in the discussion, but as far as stale goes month old bread has nothing on these guys. They haven't been entertaining since Lawler came back from his hiatus, and before then they were on the downside.
