I am a little curious if Cole and Tazz were among the 34 who went to Iraq. The fact that I do not recall any camera time for either sure seems odd, but they did try to sell it like they were in a bunker at ringside.

I was wondering that myself.

Not only were they not in any of the ringside shots, but they also weren't in any of the "earlier today" footage around Baghdad. Was probably a lot easier to record commentary in the studio then take them along.

The only thing I missed was the very starting of the show, so unless they appeared on air then...

I don't believe they were at the Iraq show. The fact that WWE was only allowed to ship 34 people there probably caused them not to bring Cole & Tazz, as they weren't necessary.

The answer to WWE's financial problems...

I don't think they were there, but they sure wanted us to think they were, such as when Tazz said, "It's hot as hell out here," or something to that effect.

I looked around the set the cameras filmed, and I didn't see a single announcer's table anywhere, let alone the two announcers themselves.

Ever notice during the Benoit-Guerrero match when Guerrero was thrown to the side that the barricade was a lot closer to the ring then it normally would've? I mean, on the spot where the table normally would be on SD?

The show was lacking something, and as minimal as itmight be, there were no shots of the announce table, no shots of Tazz and Cole, nothing. Cole once mentioned on the show that Tazz was in camo gear; that's something I'd kill to see. Tazz's trademark orange and black suit, in camo. Ha!
