In the real world, WWE believes that no matter what our race, religious creed or ethnic background in America, we all share the common bond of being Americans. American-Arabs are a part of the fabric of America, and they should be embraced by all of us.
I await breathlessly the sudden-death hole between Chavo and Barry Darsow, WCW's gold pro.
Nemeth's got a good look, seems to talk well (without knowing how many takes they did), and he and Chavo seem to already have a good conversation rhythm. I'm intrigued. Can't wait until he unleases his finisher: The Caddy Whack. Or The 3-Iron? Maybe The Sweet Cleats, or is that their tag-team name?

They've had Nemeth in a program during the summer against Ken Doane which had a fair amount of spark to it. Nemeth has definitely been working on his promos (the one where he got on Doane for using the RKO as his finisher was pretty good: "It's not even YOUR MOVE!!"), and there's been a ton of NIC t-shirts given away at the OVW shows the past few weeks.
On the other hand, if I was asked who would be going up next, I wouldn't have picked Nemeth. Even Dean Visk or Chet the Jet would have gotten a bigger vote from me on that one.
BTW, at the OVW houseshow last night (they had already filmed this week's television show the previous week), they had Nick in a tag-team match with Chris Cage against the Blonde Bombers. At the end of the match, where it looked as if Nemeth was going to run-in and stop the pin Tank had on Cage, he stopped short and watched with a smile on his face.
Then Aaron Stevens, who appears to be starting a feud with Chris Cage, came out with Shelly. Nemeth left the ring with Shelly, while Stevens taunted Cage.
So it appears they're turning Nemeth heel to coincide with his working for a heel in WWE. It was nicely done, however, as they had been building up Stevens/Cage for a few weeks and Shelly had been passed around as someone trying to tempt others into doing her bidding.
Cannot remember which site, could be PWInsider, said that WWE originally wanted the Saturday morning show to be a recap of both brands but since RAW is only on USA and Smackdown is on other channel and company USA didn't want anything about the Smackdown ...
