It's already on my Comcast system. Channel 835. Dunno what the deal is in Uglyville...

It is on my comcast as well. Channel 220 USA HD.

Good show. I am sick of people jobbing to the tadpole splash though, even if it is just the Highlanders or Coach.

Man, I've been saying this for weeks and people act like I am dumb because they should have the MITB match instead so several guys can get undeserved bonuses.

JR was way off his game this week, with the Hogan IC comment, and calling Carlito "Carly", and just stammering around on numerous occasions. maybe he was nervous about being in HD?

The way that show was booked, I have no reason to think it will not be HHH-Orton at WM 24 now. Thanks for playing, Jeff.

The first match was painful to watch in SD because when they were tied up in the corner on the left of the screen, both HBK and KK were almost out of frame on the static cam.

Hahah! So cornball but hey, Brian Kendrick was back on my TV again. Also, maybe I just haven't seen him in ages, but he looked like he put on weight.

hopefully the USA network will quit being boneheaded like the NFL Network and offer USA HD to all cable networks(Cox,Time Warner etc,Charter etc). At least we get Smackdown in HD as of now.

a First blood match in HD. imagine that.

Completely different issues. I don't think there's a cable provider that doesn't want USA HD - and Universal would be more than happy to accommodate them - but there isn't room right now. Analog channels take up a LOT of space, and many cable systems have used up what room they have on their legacy systems and they can't just add a large HD channel as easily as a smaller SD digital one (which are often compressed to hell, which you can't do as much with HD.) Then when you have a little room you have the issue of which channels to add; is a cable system that doesn't have TBS or USA going to choose the latter over a channel that offers the baseball playoffs in HD? DirecTV didn't have room until they put up new satellites, which is why Dish Network doesn't have USA HD yet either: they're struggling to keep up just like a lot of cable providers (though nearly not as bad.)

This is probably a spoiler for this Sunday's title match, so pass on by if you don't want to know. I'd do spoiler tags if I wasn't so old and computer stupidish.

Spoiler Below: Highlight text to read
Anyone notice the the wall hanging in Vince's office? It was the cover of this months new WWE magazine. It was reported Monday that the cover basically kind of spoils the Orton/Hardy match as on the cover is a pic of Jeff Hardy, and he's supposedly underwater and wrapped in chains, with a picture of the Elimination chamber in the background. Word/speculation is the Jeff loses this Sunday. I liked how the camera man purposely kept trying to keep the part of the picture with the elimination chamber out of the frame, and for the most part, Jeff's face, out of the pic, too.

Well, I know that's what the poster for No Way Out looks like. But posters don't necessarily mean anything. Basically what people have been saying for the last month is that every week makes it more likely and more probable for Jeff to actually win. A magazine cover and PPV poster are not going to be the deciding factor on whether or not he's going to win.

That being said, I don't really believe that he'll win, but I'm gonna watch it and hope he does.

I definitely noticed that.

What's stupid is that in Canada, Raw airs on The Score. The Score runs a constant ticker at the bottom of the screen with sports news and scores, and the picture (in this case, standard-def Raw) gets squished up a bit. Couldn't they just show the widescreen picture and not have to squish anything?

The new set really doesn't do it for me. Then again, I was watching it on a standard (is that the correct term for older?) television.

I still haven't found what I'm looking for...
