Just read the spoilers, and looks like Steph is making up for the huge loss of the Un-Americans and Jericho - Benoit and Guererro. Though, I'm glad that the IC title's on Smackdown again, Guererro was the best part of RAW for me, and I want to see him and the Rock again. So, here's the current tally..

Eric - HHH, The UnAmericans(Test, Christian, Storm), Jericho
Stephanie - Brock, Guererro, Benoit

Looks like Bishoff's knocking her out already. How about a breather from all this talent swapping for one week? I can't keep track and I really hate to see RAW losing Guererro after that awesome promo.


I'll leave you with one of my all time favorite HHH quotes... Uh.... Oh, yeah:

"You can't make me come just by telling me to."
To one Stacy Keibler who, of course, didn't know what he meant by that. Try me out Hunter, I'll change your mind!

I think it's totally the other way around.

Quality, not quantity, is what counts in this war.

That's true. But if Bichoff can make something big out of the UnAmericans, who knows?

I would hope that they sell the Tag Team Champions as a quality acquisition. Plus they have a valuable thing in a fresh heel stable. It only takes a little planning on the writers' part and some jobbing on the faces' part to make these guys look strong.

I count Team Canada as one, not three. And at this point in his flagging career, I count Jericho as one-half.

So our Totally Subjective Scoreboard actually has Steph ahead by half a point!

Personally, I always thought that it was odd to have Smackdown be the place for both the Cruiserweight and the Tag Team belts. I mean, there is only so much screen time to go around. The tag division is one place where you can jam a whole lot of mid-card talent in a short amount of time/space. It's hard to elevate someone who is active in the tag division, but once they leave it they can have some success. Smackdown has a ton going for it, not the least of which is the cruiserweights. If I were Steph, which I ain't, and I was writing Smackdown, I'd institute a Cruiserweight tag belt and keep that on Smackdown with the cruiserweights. It would be a perfect fit and you could legitimately get more of the cruiserweights over with the audience. Any exposure is good exposure. Keep a few headliners over on the show until the cruiserweights are accepted as headliners. With a slow, steady push, this could happen.

Then again, monkeys might start flying outta Vince's keister, too.

I figured that Flair would be jumping to Smackdown, and my little fantasy mind had Flair actually upsetting the Rock on RAW, thus letting Flair wrestle Rock for the title on last night's Smackdown in (WHOO) Charlotte.

Here's my take on it. After HHH decided to go to Raw look at just some of the people on each roster (don't chime in with you forgot this person and that person because this isn't a full list just some of them.)

The Rock (on both shows)
Big Show
Eddie Guerrero
Chris Benoit
Brock Lesnar
Booker T
Kevin Nash (yeah he's injured but he's still there)
Buh Buh
Ric Flair

The Rock (on both shows)
Kurt Angle
Chris Jericho
Lance Storm
John Cena
Deacon Batista
Jamie Knoble
Billy Kidman
Rey Mysterio Jr.
Randy Orton

On the Raw list everybody on the list except Buh Buh and Regal COULD be legit main eventers (Big Show would need a good push, but it looks like they are headed that way.) While on the Smackdown side you have Angle, Hogan, Jericho, Edge and then a whole bunch of low to mid carders.

So to me it makes sense to switch up some of Smackdowns mid carders (the canadians) for some of Raws high card wrestlers.

My only question is since Benoit and Guerrero left evil Bischoff for Stephanie (who seems to be the face in this angle) then are they faces now? I like both of them much much more as heels. And with Rock on both shows Eddie could continue his mini-feud with Rock, except that Lesnar is on Smackdown too so maybe Rock will be more focused on him.

I kind of look forward to it though because in my opinion Edge isn't on the level of Eddie and Benoit yet (ok maybe Eddie, but he's not on Benoit's level yet) and Hogan is starting to fade. So Benoit and Eddie went from being in a big log jam at the top of Raw to being 2 and 3 after Angle on Smackdown.

Stephanie needs one person to equal it all out. Rob Van Dam.

No, dammit, no Van Dam for Steph! I only get RAW!!!!!! I need RVD!

I mean, getting Jericho is great, but there's no need to throw all the good talent over to Smackdown. Wasn't the whole point of talent swaps to make RAW on a more equal playing field with Smackdown?

I personally think Steph's more likely to take Kane next, although I'm not sure exactly who Bischoff might target. After all, Kane's just going to be stuck bein' big brother's tag partner again if he lands on RAW...

Now that I think about it, yeah, the Unamericans do count for one, like the NWO was drafted as a unit. I just use single person counts because it's less confusing. So, the actual tally is...

Steph - 3 (Brock, Benoit, Guererro)
Eric - 3 (unamericans, Y2J, HHH)

I recently picked up the 2 DVD Set, Best of Raw Vol. 1 & 2. Which, by the way, I must say is an excellent buy. There was one thing that I really found humorous.
