I was able to see bits of the show this morning. I got the women's match and the last segment. Wow. I'm so glad to see Molly in a good light for a change. As far as Gail goes, you won't hear a complaint out of me. Lita does look great, so I'm glad we have one more woman in the division FINALLY. So, where's Jazz?
BUT, I have some words about the last segment of the show. From the recaps, there was something about a "party". So, let's see, only HHH was there with tons of balloons. That does not a party make, unless it was for my birthday, but that would also require stripping, not a long, tedious lecture on how he's the champ.
Hey, you know how I am about Triple H, hell I'm the only Wiener who honestly congratulated him on his wedding (so far). I've worshipped this guy longer than any wrestler I have seen in my old age, but I gotta tell ya... He was WEAK last night. He sounded awful. And I, the Ringmistress, number one HHH ass kisser in Wienerville (tied with Tomboy), actually wanted him to shut up (::whisper:: and strip! ::whisper::)! I could piss better parties than he did last night! That, plus him marrying Steph, AND a monster hurricane, and it smells like a crappy month for yours truly. Anyway, you guys can fill me in on anything else I missed.
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. 1200 bitches and counting....
(Kinda quiet around the Ladies' Forum last week... "Hello, hello, hello??")
Whole lot of boring stuff last night. Couple of little bits of goodness, but not much.
Jericho & Christian are pretty much always fun together -- I liked the "Get him, Christian." bit. The match didn't do much for me (in the way that RVD matches often don't).
I didn't find that several film clips of Goldberg spearing people convinced me that Goldberg can do anything more than spear people. But that's just me.
Rob putting Spike through a table didn't really seem match-worthy. Lance/Goldust vs. Mack/Henry was short, squashy & mostly uninteresting.
Victoria & Moolah was cool -- I don't mind Victoria underestimating an 80 year old woman & getting caught off-guard. And using Randy & the "legend killer" thing was good.
Shawn's punk-out of Randy was very nice, as we expect from Shawn. And quite the effective camera work on the slap! Then later, Randy hardly flinched at all when HHH whapped him on the chest. Here Randy thought all he had to do last night was DDT an 80 year old woman. ;-)
The SHIT failing in his attempts to fly, & calling a cab instead, was a very cute little piece of business. I do quite like his "official" superhero voice.
Terri was interviewing Molly & Gail by what appeared to be a reasonable facsimile of the Goldberg car. Suprised I was that they didn't use it. (Maybe they'd planned to, but he couldn't get it started. Bwaaahaahaah.)
Molly/Gail/Trish was a perfectly nice match. Nice touch that Trish was ready for the sack-of-shit toss over the ropes this week & had a counter ready.
Hey, Lita! How's things? Why did you feel the need to take off your shirt?
Gail confirms for us that she indeed did boink Eric last week. Sweetie, a simple blow job would have done the trick (as it were) with much less hassle. Eric's silently mouthed "Bitch" was a nice touch.
Kane/Shane contract signing was boring, other than Shane's elbow drop onto the "why's there an announce table there". Nice close-ups of Shane for Toast Jr though.
Val vs. Test -- well, there were a couple of minutes of wrestling in there.
Announcer wars -- yawn. OK, Al's shower curtain was funny. Coach in a good-guy white cowboy hat was cute. "What happened to our table?" was funny.
The HHH promo segment. Well, that didn't go very well at all. I'm with Ringmistress -- balloons do not a party make. What was the point of calling it a party? Besides confusing everybody. Of course, it's not like Vince wanted to let GB out there to promo the match. I'm betting that in addition to the microphone not working, that the balloons & confetti didn't release on time. The crowd wasn't really putting out with a very enthusiastic "Gold-berg" chant. (I know what my interpretation of that is.) Of course they'd been sitting around for quite a while, during the summary of the PPV matches. HHH did get in the nice ad lib about the microphone not working, & several nice bits of business about "I am that damn good, aren't I?" The whole thing didn't seem like much of a good idea though.
Meanwhile, tonight (Tuesday), I wonder where the heck in Raleigh, North Carolina they ended up having "HHH's Bachelor Party".
RAW was pretty blah this week, which is a shame since the ones before the PPV are usually so good. The first segment was my favorite, and I was POSITIVE Jericho and Stone Cold were going to kiss. They got nose to nose and Jericho whispered something and Austin whispered somethign back and I was sure they were declaring their undying love - but alas, it was not to be.
Emma, believe me I noticed all the Shane close-ups, and I loved the triuphant return of the Spanish Announce table, even if it was just for Coach and Snow. However, I was distracted during the whole segment by Shane's super-ugly shirt. Shane honey, what are you thinking? Go back to stripes!
I hope when Shane get murdered at the PPV (because that's what he does) he doesn't disappear forever. I know I'm the only one who wants MORE Shane, but I don't think I can live without my SHane quota for the week. I'm all ready suffering from Spanky withdrawal, don't take Shane away too!

Now you see -- there you go! Shane tried his best to get murdered, & is still around on Raw to get beaten up some more! :-)
The whole HHHate thing leaves me ambivalent. On one hand, I can look and say that no one has had a greater level of success than HHH over the past 4 years. The fued with Mick Foley is a modern classic and the matches from from which were awesome.
