Note: This message is intentionally ultra-sarcastic, even though the basic message of it reveals my true feelings.

Y'know, everyone talks about Hulk Hogan's big face turn at WrestleMania, and I admit that was pretty cool. What happened on RAW as a result? He got a 30 Minutes of Crap opening segment with The Rock, followed by another five minutes or so of “Let Us Take You Back to Earlier Tonight” segments, and another five minutes of “Let Us Take You Back to WrestleMania” segments. And then, the five or six minute main event that ended in, of all things, a countout.

But the WWF completely neglected the most shocking turn of all that happened at WrestleMania!

...Mighty Molly turned on The Hurricane to win the Hardcore Title??? Whassupwidat? Was it a “sorry, Hurricane, I had to” thing, or has she actually turned on The Hurricane? It would've helped explain things some if she'd come out to accompany Spike Dudley during his Hardcore Title match run-in. But nooooo. Hogan gets a full 45 minutes of the show dedicated to him, and Molly isn't even talked about except during the brief WrestleMania bit where they mentioned “Christian beat Mighty Molly for the Hardcore Title”?

GLASS CEILING! I DEMAND THAT THE WWF GIVE MIGHTY MOLLY THE WORLD, INTERCONTINENTAL, EUROPEAN AND HARDCORE TITLE BELTS RIGHT NOW!

Note: Sarcasm over.

Seriously though, I don't ask for much. A brief two-minute backstage interview would've sufficed for me. Just don't completely forget about her, OK? She did, after all, win a title last night, becoming only the third female in WWF history to hold a men's title.

You're right. A little time line of the Title's WM changes would have been cool. And BTW, I think the Lita Trish match was short but cool. And Ivory's back!!!! lose the hat though. At least the female heels are on the same page.

I agree that they should have recapped things a bit better. Did they even mention that RVD beat Regal?

The Hardcore Stuff at Mania was pue Wile E. Coyote grade Loony tunes, and I loved it.
Seriously that is what they need to do, keep the belt light hearted and fun, with the occasional bloodbath thrown in.

But Huricane's Swing to victory was funny, (His segment with the Ho's was kinda cheap and low brow, but had its place) his getting clocked by Molly was Super Funny, and Molly taking the low Bridge Door Shot was freakin' Hilarious.

As for Trixh Lita, the group I saw Mania with thought Trish Looked good in the Ring (Skill wise) and that Lita Stuck up that match, and I was suprised she got the (quick) victory on Raw.

If they are ACTUALLY going to set up a credible Woman's Division with more than a champ a Challenger of the Month, then I say that is a huge step in the right direction.

Don't forget that now EVERY Holly Cousin has now been Hardcore Champion due to Molly's win last night.

Molly and the Hurricane were about to settle their differences on SmackDown tonight, but were interrupted by evildoer Brock Lesnar.

Edited to add OH SHIT, I just randomly wrote that down, but now it seems like a great idea for Lesnar's first feud. He can be the next "supervillain" for the Hurricane to challenge.

Oooh, Big Bad. I must say that's an intriguing idea, seing as how Hurricane's never really had a foil.

Of course, the big problem with that is, the match would end with Lesnar ripping Hurricane's head off. I like Hurricane, but no way in hell does he stand a chance against Lesnar.

...Although-- that could be the angle. The hero, knowing he's likely to get his ass kicked, goes out against a huge monster-- and gets his ass kicked. Again, and again, and again-- but never so decisively as to make it appear Hurricane could never beat Lesnar.

Then, on a major pay-per-view, Hurricane would actually do the unthinkable-- beat Lesnar. By countout, that is. Hurricane would then jump up and down, going, “Yay! I did it! I am a winner!”

HA!

You could always bring in one of the development guys as a "super villain" to fight Helms. Hey, why not Jamie Knoble, to somehow restart 3 Count memories?

So if HBK/Taker II does happen, would that make it the first time two guys faced each other in back-to-back Wrestlemanias? (not counting Battle Royals). I can't seem to recall any match happening two years in a row. EDIT:
