I see alot of griping about Khali not being even a decent wrestler, well guess what? They are not booking him as one!@ They are booking him and a HUGE giant of a man who can't be beat. He has no real wrestling moves, lousy on the mic as his english isn't really good. Think about it, Andre the Giant was the same way.

Huge guy,no wrestling moves to speak of but he was big and could pound people. English was better than Khali's but still not real good, especially when he first got started.

Now if the WWE was billing Khali as a technical wrestler I could see the problem but they are not.

In a way, it make sense that Flair would get the upper hand on Carlito. Flair's supposed to be the "Dirtiest Player in the Game", and nobody knows more about turning on a partner than the Nature Boy. If there's ANYONE in the company who's not going to be shocked, and not take it laying down, it's Flair.

Maybe there is a reason they can't book him any other way. Like lack of ability.

A lumbering giant like Andre does not work this day and age, just ask the Big Show, one of the biggest disappointments in recent memory. And one of the rare times that WCW used a guy better than WWF.

But it would work with the 5-15 yr old set who isn't obsessed with workrate and buys "Ruck Fules" T-shirts. I was 12 when the big Hogan/Andre match happened and I could have cared less that Andre couldn't move and that more than 1/2 of the match was a bearhug. For someone around that age, it was all about one guy trying to beat a huge giant of a man.

Let's put it this way: I don't think that the PPV buys will be that much better, or worse than Backlash if Judgement Day has Cena/Khali.



Kevin Kelly: "Mr. Austin, would you like to comment on Wade Keller's Take that endorsing the XFL hurts your anti-authority character?"

Steve Austin: "Oh shit, he actually said that? I thought the boys in the back were ribbing me!"

Kelly: "No, he really said that. Did they tell you the part about you sitting in the stands, looking all skeptical?"

Austin: "AHAHAHAHAHAHA. Yeah... oh man that was too much."

I'm hoping/guessing that the Vince McMahon, Certified Samoan Bulldozer Driver storyline ends with Umaga and/or Armando Alejandro Estrada turning on Vince. You know, your basic "he's stealing all the glory and we're doing the dirty work" storyline. Umaga kills Lashley dead, but Vince gets the ECW title, and it was Vince's "I'm Keith Hernandez!" moment that cost Umaga the Intercontinental title. The only question for me would be if they both turn on the McMahons (as Estrada would probably still have to do all the talking) or just Umaga, snapping at Estrada and the McMahons for getting him into this mess.

The problem with that is for storyline purposes (due to the Samoan Savage character), Umaga has no reason to hate Vince because he doesn't know that it was Vince's braggadocio that was the reason why he's no longer carrying around the shiny thing he had for a few months. But he does know that Lashley hit him really hard a bunch of times, so he hates him. Estrada could explain it to him to turn him face, but that's pretty manipulative for a crowd favorite.

Now this one is PPV Gold! They've got so many opportunities with the hallway skits to have the extras start following the guys around and either dance or sing backup.
