When last we saw Steve Austin, he was running down to ringside to prevent Eric Bischoff from further interfering in the Goldberg-Jericho title match. However, in doing so he placed his hands on Bischoff and thus physically assaulted another WWE Superstar without provocation. This, we've been told, is a no-no.

So what are they up to? Will he be fired? Suspended? Brought back into competition bad neck and all? Or will the WWE forget about said stip and ignore it, or possibly claim that as the Raw GM it's his duty to make sure his show is not besmirched, and Bischoff by besmirching his show was provoking him in a metaphysical manner?

Well, common sense says that he'll be fired because of that. But then again, "common sense" and WWE do not mix.

After a quarter of a century on this planet, there's two things I know for sure...
1)I'm smarter than I was a year ago.
2)WWE isn't.

Here's the thing. Bischoff isn't a Raw Superstar (tm). He's the GM. I don't remember if Linda lumped GM's and wrestlers together, but that's the way out--Bischoff isn't a wrestler. Now, are they gonna go with it?

They really need to institute some rule where Bischoff can do something to superstars that plug him too. Goldberg fragged him in the opening last week, and like Jericho said "He can't do anything".

It used to be 3MinWarning that would do that, Bisch needs some new lackeys to go beatdown Austin ;)

Well, Vince seems to lump EVERYONE under WWE contract as "Superstars" (seeing as he can book Stephanie, the SmackDown GM, in matches). SOOO...that makes Bisch & Austin RAW superstars.

Odds are, nothing'll happen...but something will be threatened!

My Calgary Flames are currently tied for first place overall with a record of 0-0-0-0. It's training camp, but it's a start, right?

I hope they give him some sort of penalty. I like Austin, but having him go over every active heel wrestler is getting ridiculous. It'd be nice to see Bischoff and Jericho put one over on him.

Dr. Jay, they've specifically used Bischoff as an example of Austin not being able to touch him without provocation -- remember the Bischoff-Shane match, where Shane had to slap Austin's face with Bischoff's hand? So yes, he's included.

I think it was Heat last night (or some other recap show on the weekend) that had Al Snow talking about Austin hitting Bischoff, and making a point about what sort of penalties there was going to be because of it.

So either they ARE going to go ahead with some sort of storyline around this, or else Al Snow is in the same "The SMART thing to do would be..." boat that we are, and he'll end up just as disappointed as us at the end of the show.

That makes me think Cole would be an awesome GM? I would rather see him cutting promos in the ring than doing the schizophrenic announcing. JBL would be a great payoff. It ain't Shawn Michaels.
