This entire show just had a strange aura about it, what with Booker T and Goldust and the Dudley's teaming up, Goldust's master plan to recruit the Dudley's consisting of dressing up like Benjamin Franklin, and nobody mentioning it again all night, William Regal sobbing like a baby after losing the European title to Jeff Hardy, Chris Nowinski telling us about Harvard's sports teams with a giant bruise or something on his face, everyone going ECW on us because of the locale, the Jackie debacle, and capping it all off with Nash's out of the blue injury. Oh, and Joe Frazier in the crowd! Not as cool as Poison showing up, but still! Smokin' Joe!

JR was right when he said "This is live, so anything can happen!"

William Regal had me cracking up. I can't wait for him to cut some anti-hillbilly promos about Jeff Hardy holding the European title. I want to hear Regal lament the fact that the current European champion's only knowledge of Europe comes from watching James Bond reruns. I want to Jeff to yell back extreme catch phrases in his southern drawl. I'm really psyched for a cool rivalry here.

Honorable mention to Nowinski for *just being there*. I felt you bro.

I'm probably stating the obvious, but Ben Franklin was also due to the locale. There is Franklin this and Franklin that everywhere you go in Philly.

If anyone had bet me that Goldust WOULDN'T do a Men in Black routine this week, you could have won big money. I was absolutely sure we'd be seeing that. Hey, Ben Franklin was never even IN movies, dammit!

On a show where Paul Heyman is involved in some spots, who would have thought that Kevin Nash and Jackie Gayda would be competing for the worst spot in the show?

And while I guess it makes more sense for Dreamer to piledrive Heyman, it looked to me like he was going to powerbomb him, and when Brock stopped that, I thought, "YOU CAN'T POWERBOMB HEYMAN!!!"

Well, some of the strangeness is just that (Regal crying? Hello?) but a couple are perfectly reasonable. Nowinski's little Harvard skit was marred by the black eye that he got (surprise!) from Bradshaw last week. The big doofus potatoed him with a shot and you could IMMEDIATELY see his eye blacken and swell.

The ECW wackiness was actually sort of fun... Brock selling for Jeff Hardy is a bit silly, but Brock selling a Tommy Dreamer kendo stick shot is a bit more believable, and BOY did the crowd love it.

And correct me if I'm wrong, but hasn't Nash been injured (torn bicep, which only goes to prove that Kane is STILL pretending to be Diesel/Nash, since he got one shortly thereafter) for a couple of months now? Not exactly out of the blue, unless he sprained something pulling his hair back in that ponytail.

Uhh, I think Harvard Chris got the black eye on the house show circuit. I know he had it last week before the 30 second match with Bradshaw. That's not to say Bradshaw didn't do it, it just didn't happen last Monday.

What hurt is that Molly was on the heat tapings, but not the Raw show. That sucked. I would have loved to see her beat up Jackie again.

I found the show to be an "eh" kind of show. Nothing that stands out the next day.

Amen to that. I was expecting Molly to be on all night and it took something away from the show when she didn't appear. It is an injustice when Jackie is on Raw and has a totally CRAPTACULAR match while Molly is banished to Heat to fight Jacquiline when she is the freaking WOMEN'S CHAMPION!!! Molly better get put over big in this match to get some compensation. Not having Molly on Raw totally sucks. I need my Molly fix! :)

The Chris Harvard video package didn't really make sense. He walks by a dorm and says, "This is where all the butch girls hang out," and it's over?? What??

The ECW segment ruled, though. Props to them for letting Dreamer whip the piss outta Brock with that kendo stick.

    "YOU CAN'T POWERBOMB HEYMAN!!!"
That was one of the greatest things I have ever heard. I bow down to you. You, sir, are a comedic genius. (And I am not being sarcastic here.)

Actually, I laugh at any type of joke that goes like: "YOU CAN'T POWERBOMB [insert name here]!"

Back on topic, the weirdest thing I have seen was after Ben Franklin talks to the Dudleyz II, they cut back to Benoit, and I wonder, how can anyone see that and still keep a straight face? By Crikey!

You're wrong ... Nash suffered a totally different injury (blown-out knee? twisted ankle? I haven't read the news sites yet) when he tripped over Earl Hebner trying to take a swing at Goldust ... Poor poor Poochyfud.

    **SPOILER** (somewhat, anyway)
    I'm sure you've found out by now, but Nash tore his quad in his return match on RAW last night.

    Well, blarg. First time something noteworthy happens in an NWO-related main event in forever and I'm getting a damn Coke. Consider my statement retracted.

    But, really, considering the state of Kev's knees on a GOOD day... I'm not surprised he blew one out. Hell, I'm surprised he didn't blow it out stepping over the rope.

    I said it back on the RAw thread this was the strangest show I've seen in a long time. Last time I saw a show that I remember seeing many bizarre happenings was over a year ago when Raw did a spoof of Queer as Folk and had Austin fondling Ross backstage while watching videos and McMahon looking on with a devilish smile. Benoit/Jericho giving eachother passionate looks and Team X-Factor came out in a pink entrance and an "emotional" Uncle Cracker song. That April 2001 show had me thinking "okay that was odd" just like this week did.

    - Vince coming out right off the bat saying, "hey Undertaker marks, the World Champ ain't here so don't bother watching"...lol

    - The X-pac look-a-like that Booker beat, and I'm still not convinced it wasnt' X-pac. We never saw his face, just heard one of the commentators saying "hey that ain't X-pac" I'm like how could you tell.

    -Benoit, Bubba, Eddie and Booker all wrestling twice

    - Regal crying, very surreal

    - One of the worse women match ever, with one of the most consistent workers on the WWE (Trish). Jackie looked like she was never been in a ring her entire life, Jackie was as lost as I've seen any wrestler.

    -To top that segment off with a nice cherry on top we have Lilian saying the "winner of this match Trish Stratus" completely forgetting Bradshaw

    - Benoit and Eddie showing off there buy one get one free tights sale.

    -Flair walks backstage, someone calls out. I swore I from a distance I thought it was Russo (one other person mentioned it on the Raw thread). Then having a Flair v. Richards match?

    - Middle of Michaels interview some smartass tells him to "get to the point", not strange for someone the heckle but to HBK Mr. Charisma it was strange.

    -Nowinski at Harvard with a shiner, but really not saying or doing anything. It looked like Nowinski went to the WWE staff and said "Oh we are allowed to do a photoshoot at Harvard like you wanted, but we have to go right now" So they took off and when they got there they all looked at eachother and said "Do you have any ideas what these promos should be about"

    - Tommy gets tons of offense on Lesner and Heyman takes the Van-Daminator

    - Goldust awful Ben Franklin impression, but it was funny as hell

    - Nash coming in after 3 months out nails the big boot and then "AHHHHHHH"

    -Ending this strange Raw with Michales cutting a promo on how the NWO is strong and standing tall with Nash on the mat screaming in pain behind him.

    Very bizarre night on Monday.
