How come all 4 have to wear shitty ring attires now? Christian with the ugly red stripes, Lance Storm in red undies wich looks weird on him(stick with pants Storm), Test with ugly gray shorts, and Regal... well not much of a change from his old attire. They have the worst ones in the WWE right now along with John Cena. Did they do such a bad job as the UNAmericans? The writers should be the ones stuck with the punishement.
Hmm. I'm only a half with you on this. I thought Test looked much better than he had -- actually it looked to me like he'd trimmed up some, & got rewarded with a niftier look than he had before. With Lance, I noticed something different, but truth be told, I didn't actually figure out what it was til Dr Unlikely's post -- personally, I'm good with showing off as much of Lance as he's willing to. ;-) As you said Regal's isn't much of a change, but its a bit snazzier than what he had.
Now Christian's new look -- that's a different matter. I've given it a few weeks to grow on me, & it hasn't at all. The singlet looks awful on him, the red is a terrible colour for him -- nothing about it looks good. And his hair isn't working at all either, although I'm not sure what all they did. He comes out with it wet & tendril-y, but dries during the course of the match into a soft blonde -- half the time I find myself going "Who the hell is that?" His look is not working for me at all!
I think the slight increase in the Raw rating is in large part due to people being curious for all the wrong reasons. You have a new "plot" (if you will) in the Kane-HHH storyline and if it's gonna be bad (which most people think it is)
