is RVD/Booker T. They seem to have a nice little angle going on. I'm thinking...
a) the promos could be pretty funny with RVD's laid-back, cool character interacting with Booker's not-so-laid-back, would be cool 15 years ago character.
b) their ring styles might mesh together really well and make for some entertaining matches. They both rely pretty heavily on kicks, and I bet we could get some innovative stuff out of the two of them on that front. Plus for some reason, I just see them clicking together in the ring. I don't really know exactly why yet. Let me get back to you on this one.
c) They're both about the same place on the card, and might really be able to get both characters more over than when they started.
Anyway, I hope they give these two some more TV time, and keep this feud going for a PPV or two.

Yeah, I think Booker/RVD would work. They looked pretty good tonight on RAW. Booker works well with RVD, acting as if he's scouted RVD's moves. He always delivers the back elbow while RVD is about to get all flipyy and whatnot.
But screw all that... I'm looking for the Maestro to come to the WWF and feud with Goldust. If only Liberace were still with us. He could have ref'ed that one.

Booker/RVD would be interesting. And just like Benoit vs Jericho did last year they can elevate themselves by working great matches. No jobbing to the established superstar, no having to sell any lame signature moves..no chasing eachother in supermarkets..
In fact, this could be the WWF's version of Booker T vs Benoit's best-of-seven series. The feud that makes em both..
The real reason HBK has never made that much talked about comeback used to bounce out of synch with the other Nitro Girls.
True, true. Since I'm never going to get my Booker-D.Lo tag team, I would love to see a EXTENDED fued between The Book and RVD that last at least 2 PPV's. And after that fued is over.....It will be time for RVD to go on a 3 to 5 monthes fued with a returning Benoit. DAmn why am I setting myself up for disappointment?
i agree with what has been said. Booker T needs a new feud and rvd could be it. i think that they will get it on at no way out with rvd winning. he needs a win on a ppv. he lost at no mercy, survivor series, vengenace and now the royal rumble. he needs a major win soon.
Booker T and Chris Benoit site their feud over the TV Title as their most memorable (they changed hands with it a few times besides being in the best of 7.) So I think that BT and RVD would work, with more air from RVD than Benoit gives.

There were things that possibly topped fake Diesel and Razor when it comes to horrible entertainment, but that angle was an absolutely boneheaded move. It shouldn't be second, however, maybe right in there at 5.
