Hey kids, remember when WCW ran segments on Nitro in the wrong order? Well, right now, on Smackdown, they're running the Chuck Rock (my other name for them was deemed a little too offensive by... well, someone else) vs. Venis/Hardcore match.
Yeah, the one they taped for VELOCITY. It still has the green lights near the stage and Velocity logo in the entrance. Disclaimer: If they had any explanations, I muted the TV. Sorry, but Abandoned Pools takes precedence over Cole ANY day.

Sure, they're no D'Lo Coach, but they are on their way to becoming the A-Team of the WWE in my book.

That's the tough boat the tv promotions face.....the balance between pleasing the "core" wrestling fans ( who realistically only make up 10-25% of the overall audience ) and appealing to "casual fans", i.e.
