Dude.... did anyone catch Eddie's face when Kurt was apologing to him on Smackdown? He looked like he was on the verge of a breakdown. The man is awesome... I haven't seen as much passion outta someone since the old Cactus Jack promos. Bravo! Get this man a main-event slot...now!
I was there....When Chris Jericho beat Austin and Rock in the same night to become the first ever Undisputed Champion! (And for the incredible Eddie/ Edge "no DQ"!!!)
They need to strike while the iron is hot. Eddie is big time over. When he popped up at the San Diego Smackdown, the crowd went nuts. AFter he gets done with this Chavo/Kurt Angle thing, it's time to put him into one of the title pictures. And I like how they have changed the Eddie/Chavo angle. The look in Chavo's eyes last night was AWESOME!!! I would much rather see an angry Chavo than the loony Chavo. You remember him from WCW.
Attempted murder... really. Do they give a Nobel Prize for Attempted Chemistry?
I was thinking the same thing about Eddie's performance. The man is simply amazing. I said it in a post a few months back, but the man deserves to wear the main strap more than anyone IMHO ... his life was on a downward spiral, he damn near died in a car wreck, was given another chance in WWE and is now one of the most popular wrestlers in the world ...

OK. the guy is an awesome actor for a wrestler and is mucho over. The wrong thing to do would be to put the belt on Eddy ASAP. The right thing to do would be to write a proper dramatic storyline appropriate to Eddy's talents.
Then again, maybe the writers aren't good enough to step up to the plate.
You know, for a turn that took forever, it was done really well. Both Guerreros showed quite a lot, and the look on Eddy's face was unbelievable. I'd love to see them do something with him, but I hope that they don't forget Chavo while doing so.

Of course, you also mean that the look on Eddy's face was believable as well. Funny, that.
It would also be funny if both Eddy and Chavo are pissed at Angle. That could go several different directions, from moving towards an Eddy-Angle feud to eventually cruising into an Angle-Chavo feud while Eddy gets into a singles title realm.
People seemed to hate the movement towards breaking up Los Guerreros. People also hated the whole Jericho-Christian bet angle, but people mind end up liking its execution. Maybe the onus really is on the performers to get over. While some wrestlers have been saddled with crap, others have failed to get over in angles that showed more promise than either of these two.
I think in the end it would help the WWE to send injured wrestlers to acting school. Give them something else to do besides rehab.
I really liked Eddie performance backstage with Kurt as well. Kurt of course was great with his half hearted "oops I guess I was wrong about Chavo, yeah sorry). But Eddie was fantastic just steaming, which is a sharp contrast of the happy latino heat or the over the top latino temper characteristics we are used to seeing from Eddie.

Get your WWE CD copy autographed by Stone Cold Steve Austin, Chris Jericho, Trish Stratus and Lilian Garcia after Raw... Oh MY! Christmas has come late. Can't get better then that.
Eddie is way over right now, and if the WWE was smart, would recognize it and continue to elevate him. He's one of the highlights of the show for me, and I can live without seeing Vince, Sable, the Big Show, Albert, Torrie and big men squashing little men or men squashing women if it means we get more Eddie.
With the so-called glass ceiling seemingly in place, I don't see how ANY wrestler can truly get over in the WWE today. The last one to really have a grass-roots surge in popularity was RVD, but his main-event push was cut short after a few months.
