I'd like to take this time to say screw you to all of you who gave this such a high rating the first time around. Its cause of you that I don't even have the option of changing the channel to see Juve vs. Eddie for 28 minutes.

What Worked

TKG: Nice jacket on Christian.

PAS: This show had the feel of Jim Crockett buying OMEGA and burying all of the workers. I did really enjoy the 45 seconds of Flair v. Shane Helms and Matt Hardy is really great as a JTTS although it is a shame that he is back in 1996. I wonder if Otto Schwanz did an International Heat job to John Hidenreich.

TKG: Really liked Jericho vs. Stevie Richards. The bumps into the arm work were nice, and Stevie sold really well for the smaller Jericho making even Jericho's shitty WWE bulldog look good. The post match beating was also sweet. For a match with exact same finish, this totally smoked the Nise Richards vs. Canadian main event from a couple weeks ago.

What Didn't Work

TKG: What the fuck was that long mic segment with Benoit, Michaels and Helmsley? Fuck did that go on forever, get no heat and completely bury the match. They try to put over Helmsley as a guy playing mind games as he's pitting their egos against each other. God that stupid. How hard would it be to simply tell the truth:

Helmsley sits in a room with Flair:

Flair: Helmsley, you're in trouble. Benoit, he's trouble.

HHH: Bah! he's no threat to me, he's as heatless as you get.

Flair: No H-man, I worked with him in WCW. You feud with Benoit...he'll fuck your wife. You'll be out a job.

HHH: Aw shit you're right. Hmm. HBK still wants a piece of me after the last PPV. Maybe I can trick HBK into getting involved. Do you think they'd all fall into my trap? Three way dance.

Flair: Damn, H-man you're a genius...distract Benoit with Whysper. He won't know which one to tag. You're a cerebral Assassin.

See that makes Helmsley look actually smart. Current storyline has him looking like a poor man's Zbzysco trying to trick Baron Blitzers' into not trusting Debeers Diamond Cutters.

PAS: Man alive this whole show was like a long episode of Superstars with squash matches and multiple Missy's Manor segments. Helmsley is a really shitty Missy Hyatt.

TKG: Ok let me get this straight both Benoit and Michaels are in the WON HOF while never being draws. They're in for "the quality of their work alone". And Aja isn't? Fuck Aja vs. Helmsley would so smoke this upcoming three way. So I'm watching this mic segment and realized, forget the match. Aja vs. Helmsley mic work would smoke these two guys whispering at each other. Helmsley would do the old Flair and his chauffeur spot. Aja in the Hattie McDaniels black dress with the lace collar raising the young boys of Evolution, trying her home remedies to fix Batista's skin condition " I aint never done seen no ring worm like dat be' fo. We gots to burn da calomeel and then rub it on yo arm"... Until she eventually can't takes no more. Aja interrupts Helmsley on the mic, " Heish yo mouth. Boy you the talkingest white boy I ever dun heard. " "Mamey I'm talking"... Aja Uraken "I sez HEISH yo mouth"

PAS: That 8 man tag was the only match on the show that wasn't a squash and it really stunk. RVD is not the man you want in the ring for long sections of face in peril, as he sells everything like he's smelling bong water.

TKG: I liked Cade on the apron but DAMN was that match a mess. Bubba didn't have the common decency to point the sky before selling D-Von to Jindrak. The faces clear the ring spot was so bad it was funny. It really was WWF contactless wrestling where the heels have to bump for no one having to apply any offense. Maybe that was a tribute to Big John Studd's battle royale wins.

PAS: It is too bad that Feinstien didn't do the decent thing and eat a gun, because I was really looking forward to making a "Bubba points to the sky before he sodomizes Reid Flair" joke.

PAS: Johnny Spade? Did Method Man sue or something? And aren't they worried about ODB suing now?

TKG: For the last five weeks they've used the old SNME heel takes a lap getting chased around ring segment on every episode of RAW, sometimes in multiple matches on the same show. Ross trying to sell Benoit as great tactician while he's getting caught in that spot is really dumb. The commentators stop talking about the Matt Hardy on a loosing streak gimmick. What's up with that? I mean yeah they fired Kanyon, but the gimmick works just as well if Shawn O'Hare gets thrown into the swimming pool.

PAS: Man alive this whole show was like a long episode of Superstars with squash matches and multiple Rio's Roundup segments. Rock is a really shitty Rio Rogers.

PAS: I can't believe they are going to send that poor old lady to a Connecticut Hotel Room with Jimmy Snuka.

I really didn't get that 'WrestleMania feel' from this show. I think I may have to pass on XX for a new episode of the Sopranos, and what's the deal with two Fatal Four Ways on the same PPV anyway?

Oh, and Austin looked more blitzed than usual out there tonight. At least the Sandman smashes beer cans on his head when he comes out for no real reason.

But what if they pull a Vince Russo swerve and declare Benoit a Mormon? Then he could take Trip and Michaels wife and throw them in with Fallen Angel. Damn, Nancy was hot in Florida in the early 80's.



Latest news out of Hollywood is that Sid Eudy was offered the role of Jesus in The Passion. Unfortunately, that fell through due to Sid's continued insistence that he be crucified under the title: King of the Squirrels.
