The Smackdown tapings didn't happen on Tuesday, but on Thursday they did a live show with no angles, just some kick ass wrestling. The point was, America had to move on and not just give up after 9/11. Stephanie cut a horrible promo comparing the plight of America to the plight of the McMahon family during the steroid trials of the late 80s. The rest of the show was pretty good, and it was the first break I got from continuous CNN updates.
The future of AAA is an unknown on this point - on the admistrative side, Pena was doing everything. At the end of his life, Pena seemed to spend more energy covering up his health state (and trying to fix it) than preparing AAA for life without him.
