I don't know if anyone else caught this (I hope not), but before I sat down for Raw X, I spent yet another hour of my life I won't get back watching the blooper show on UPN. It was all clips from the standard UPN sitcoms we see advertised during Smackdown, with two or three Enterprise bloopers added, but just before the end, they also did a Smackdown montage.
First, the hostess (wasn't she on some MTV rappin sketch comedy show a few years back?) basically apologizes to the audience for what we are about to see, as it will only be enjoyed by overly violent teenage males, or women who just watch for the hot bods. (Nope, no stereotypes here... )
Then we get treated to a package of clips from some of our favorite WWE Smackdown skits... except most of them didn't happen on Smackdown! We get (in random as I remember order) Kurt playing "Jimmy Cracked Corn" on Austin's guitar, Kurt in his little cowboy hat, Goldust as Steve Irwin (and Big Show sleeping with a little eye cover thing on), Booker T doing a spinaroonie, Booker telling coach to do a Coacharoonie, Coach doing the Charleston (or some dance I don't recall the name of), and FINALLY, the only actual blooper (that aired second in the montage, but I mention it now): Jericho and Cena (I think, it was a quick clip), are having a stare down in the locker room, behind them Rey Rey is doing pull ups using a cabinet as a pull-up bar. Suddenly, the shelf Rey is holding breaks, and Rey falls to the floor with a peice of wood in his hands.
After watching that montage, I could understand why the hostess had to apologize for it, even if I'm a wrestling fan. There was ONE blooper in there, and the rest was mostly stuff that looks dumb to me, and I tune in for this weekly.
I hated that show, and yet somehow, the WWE managed to be one of the worst parts of it.
The opening interview thingy was decent enough. I thought it was going to be one of those "four guys come out and claim the title shot" dealies. And funny, I don't remember USA censoring WWE when they announced they were going to TNN....
