So if you paid money to watch RR, the WWF ripped you off!
Straight from the Bishoff Days!
You got a good show right? Isn't that what matters.. If you only watch it for finding out who the #1 contender at WM will be then you get ripped off no matter what as about two and a half months of hyping his name are in between those matches..
If I recall correctly 2 out of 3 (if including HHH 3 out of 4) had some sort of #1 contenders match following their win..
Bischoff days? I know what you mean by it, but what is THAT supposed to mean?!

And, at least they're coming up with decent reasons for why they're doing it. I recall a Shawn Michaels/Owen Hart #1 Contender match at In Your House before Wrestlemania XII that was basically concocted on a dare.
Kurt Angle looks like an asshole for running to Vince (especially since there's probable cause for Vince to hate Triple H right now with the stuff he's said about him). Triple H looks like he's been backed into a corner. Add the fact that his shrieky wife is knocked up and she and Angle had romantic tension awhile back that most fans bought, I think that's one of the more thorough and interesting feuds they've put together in some time.

I'd personally say that the Rumble kicked my ass htis year.. a number of pretty damned good matches and the Rumble itself, while predictable, was fun.. and thats all I ask for out of a PPV.. as for it being negated at No Way Out.. its not like wrestling is.. booked.. anyway
Thoughts: As mentioned in another thread, Benoit seems to be more Steamboat than Garvin to HHH's Flair. Michaels seems to be the Funk to HHH's Flair, always beaten-up and semi-retired, but managing to pull out a good match from time-to-time.
