I loved the way they used Kurt Angle breaking up the Halloween party on Smackdown. When he threw (Shannon Moore?) across the room, my first thought was, Hey, isn't the food fight on the Thanksgiving show? Then he told everyone to shut the hell up, and they immediately shut the hell up. The Angle who stalked across the room wasn't silly-hat wearing Angle, or man-boy love jokes Angle (whom I find very entertaining, though). This was Kurt Angle, the Heavyweight with Cruiserweight speed, the Man who won a Gold Medal with a freakin' broken neck, the Man who can pull off any move at any time from any position, and make you cry like a baby. When he's pissed off, lesser men sit down, shut up, and hope he doesn't notice them.

Chris Benoit? He's the guy who's not afraid to piss him off.

I think this is the perfect way to establish the importance of a feud when there's no belt to go after.

It's a shame they didn't just use basic wrestling dominance psychology in the Triple-H vs Kane feud. I'd be a lot more interested if they were playing it up as HHH: the guy who retired Mick Foley, drove the Rock to Hollywood and Stone Cold out of the business because they couldn't compete with him, etc., vs Kane: the formerly unstoppable monster who may not be as unstoppable now that he is enjoying life. Sure the stuff about the Rock and Austin is crap, but it would be regular heel-wrestler lies, not this necrophilia embarassment.

This is exactly the vibe I got from it too...and I loved it! They haven't had to make a de facto face out of either of them yet, and that's great. It's being built up on sheer character development and wrestling.

These two are the absolute top dogs. When they're fighting, you just get the "F" out of the way!

Awwww, yeah! 100% agree, Bob, and that's a shame too because HHH and Kane can pull it off, but the number hungry writers wouldn't let that happen. Unfortunate too, because their careers took a hit from that.

Hmm,for Raw to be good and great agian?*Shrug*



Mattitude(ma't-e-toodeh'): Mattitude, is something that can not be taught or learned. Mattitude is something that burns within. In the ring, Mattitude is the intangible, the x-factor, that gives Matt Hardy Ver.1 an advantage over everyone else.


Shin Strife has Mattitude...

Good point but hopefully character development would go aways to improving RAW. A new booker mightn't hurt either...

Oh So true! I personally think they need to make Brian Soloman a booker(the rogue WWE guy)

I think Scott Christ* is flooding the poll. *I'm picking on him 'cause he's the only person I've ever read on this site who actually likes the Dollar Store Stan Hansen.
