When HHH took out the videotape...i switched to third watch and haven't switched yet...plan to see MNF after...as a long time wrestling fan I just have a very bad feeling where all the Kane thing is going.
It's still on my TV, but I'm barely paying attention. I've gotten in the habit of listening while doing something else, only watching if it sounds like there's something interesting going on. Doesn't sound like I'm missing much.
Originally posted by WhoBettahThanDeionWatched it all. Me and my friend actually laughed at the video. So stupid yet so... Oh, well, screw it, I thougbt it was long, but funny in a way. Can't really fault you all for turning the channel.
But, why not just turn the tv off, there's lots of good books to be read.
RAW was good. The last segment was bad, but everything leading up to it was good. Quit whining. The HHH skit was hilarious.
Caped Boy: Excuse me, ladies. You may remember me as the guy who came to dinner a few weeks ago with underwear on my head. My name is Keith Stat from Milbourne, New Jersey. State bird, the mosquito. And as you may have heard I am recently a crowned class B dungeon-master. So if any of you would like to play D&D today, please speak now or forever hold your peace. [He chuckles, and there is an awkward silence at the table.] Caped Boy: Anyone? Alexa! [Alexa gives him a withering glare.] Caped Boy: Maybe you would like to join in? We do need a druid, and you have definitely cast a level 5 charm spell on me. Alexa: In your dreams, douche-bag! Caped Boy: Douche-bags are hygienic products, I take that as a compliment. Thank you. [Keith walks off] Alexa: Ewww!
The Al Snow/Chris Nowitski storyline looks awesome. Probably the most entertaining piece of RAW.
I saw the start of the videotape and kept switching back and forth because I thought it was over. Easily the worst wrestling segment I have ever seen in my life.
HBK interview was just stupid.
These commercials are superfine because they pay for the production costs of putting CHRIS MOTHERFUCKING BENOIT on my GODDAMN TV SCREEN! I will GO GREYHOUND! I am thinking OUTSIDE THE BUN! – Dean Rasmussen 8/1/2002 Smackdown Workrate Report
And I thought the HBK interview was awesome, myself. I don't know, I liked the guy, and it was just what I expected and wanted. I mean, how good are interviews from the World anyways? Best World interview ever was Billy Gunn bitching about not being on King of the Ring and HATING.
I liked RAW. Am intrigued by Nowkinski/Snow and like Dreamer. I'm also a STRONG fan of Booker/Goldust and Jericho/Christian. Hell, I liked Big Show's match, thought it was his best outing EVER.
"WHO WRITES THIS CRAP!?" -10/7/02 The night Kane was announced a murderer.
"Pootie Tang? More like Dootie Tang!" -Chris Rock
One word: BUCKEYES! With that being said, BLAM! In your face!
I wasn't mortally offended by seeing HHH's mounting face; I _like_ sick humor, done well. This wasn't done well. At all. Had the skit been less than EIGHT YEARS LONG, it might've stood a chance.
There are wrestlers on the Raw side whose work I generally enjoy -- and that's a shame, 'cause next Monday night is Fire Pro D time, and Vice City comes out right after that. Call me when the writing team changes.

It was funny when HHH was kicking the trunk so much that he opened it up and had to try to hold it closed when they were driving off. I was rolling on that one. And why in the hell didn't Hurricane help Kane in his fight?
January 4th 1999 - The day WCW injected itself with 10 gallons of Liquid Anthrax...AKA...The day Hogan "Defeated" Nash to win the WCW title in front of 40,000.
When HHH said "role the footage" I shut off the tv. There's not a calculator that could calculate how fast I turned off the tv. This saves me the time of going to a secret laboratory high in the mountains and having a mad scientist remove the part of my brain that remembered that horrible, awful, idiotic skit.
The only thing that kept me watching was JR in the main event. You could tell that he wanted to shoot on this whole debacle, and it looked like he was about to.
"Why is Flair going up there? That never works! He's been doing that for the last 20 years!"
If the wwe keeps up this streak, JR is gonna snap one day and just start shootin' everything.
Flair: "Tonight, it's gonna be Austin, Bradshaw, taking on the NWO!
Flair: I'm not trying to screw you Austin. Tonight, to show that I'm legit, I'll referre your match tonight when you and bradshaw take on the n..w..o!
Flair: You thought that was funny Austin? No one screws with the nature boy! tonight, it's gonna be you and bradshaw taking on X-pac and Big Show!
Flair:That's it, you have pissed of the nature boy WHOOO for the very last time Austin!! Tonight I throwing your ass in a special tag match against the NWO. And your partner is gonna be.........Bradshaw!
I watched straight through but I'm a diehard. Only one thing ever made me stop watching. Being the HUGE Bret Hart fan I am, I watched the Raw after SurSer 97 then I was so pissed off, I actually stopped watching for a month. I eventually had to turn it on again because I missed watching it. When I read that Owen had run in at the end of DX: IYH, I thought maybe they'd be pushing Owen to the World Title. Stupid me. Anyway, I keep watching...to see how bad it can possibly get...and to hopefully be around if/when the turnaround starts. Hopefully as in I hope it happens; I'll be there regardless.
A few thoughts on the matter: 1) If Vince doesn't like talking about Bret and/or Montreal, then why is he still using the "Montreal Screwjob" ending in main event matches (Survivor Series 1998, Benoit-Austin on RAW in May/June 2001, etc.)? 2)
