Now theres a suprise! Lets hope that after the PPV Vince stops the rot and puts bradshaw back amongst the mid card roster asap for all our sakes. Personally I think bradshaw should fain a big injury and pull out of the match on Heat to save the PPV then a mystery heel could take his place. I dont know who but im sure that they can find someone better than JBL.
The first thing I thought when JBL won the match via DQ was "F***in' great! This means they'll continue the feud." I hope they get a clue from the poll.
BTW, did anyone else notice just how BADLY JBL was dressed in his promo? Black pinstripe suit, white checked shirt and a yellow tie with a spotted pattern. I sincerely hope this is part of the angle and that he didn't dress himself and think "Damn, I look good." Ugh.
Man, I hope Bradshaw goes out at the Bash and KICKS EDDIE'S ASS. He's busted his hump trying to get this character over, he had what was easily the best match of his career last night, and all everyone does is piss on him. This isn't a Hardcore Holly-like situation here, Bradshaw's been trying damn hard to justify his push and whilst that task is beyond him he HAS succeeded in actually, y'know, getting over. He's also significantly stepped up his in-ring game. Now I'm not hot on him being pushed into the ME at the start of his reinvention, but cripes, bitch about the poor management decision behind it rather than the guy who's trying his damndest to make it work. That's where my venom's being directed.
And don't throw that "He hates the internet" bull my direction, either-if you can't tell a smart-aimed heel promo when you see one, I ain't got TIME for ya.
"good use of the best heel on SD....morons...."
Booker is a CRAPPY heel. There. I said it.
EDIT: I guess I should add this in now before the crowing of "shill" begins-last night's show was far far FAR below what SmackDown could be putting out right now. But when people are focusing on Booker losing and Bradshaw keeping up his push over the myriad of OTHER massive faults with the brand, well Hell, that's all I'll focus on too.
(edited by oldschoolhero on 17.5.04 1347) Once upon a time in China, some believe, around the year one double-ought three, head priest of the White Lotus Clan, Pai Mei was walking down the road, contemplating whatever it is that a man of Pai Mei's infinite power contemplates - which is another way of saying "who knows" - when a Shaolin monk appeared, traveling in the opposite direction. As the monk and the priest crossed paths, Pai Mei, in a practically unfathomable display of generosity, gave the monk the slightest of nods. The nod was not returned. Now was it the intention of the Shaolin monk to insult Pai Mei or did he just fail to see the generous social gesture? The motives of the monk remain unknown. What is known, are the consequences. The next morning Pai Mei appeared at the Shaolin Temple and demanded of the Temple's head abbot that he offer Pai Mei his neck to repay the insult. The Abbot at first tried to console Pai Mei, only to find Pai Mei was inconsolable. So began the massacre of the Shaolin Temple and all 60 of the monks inside at the fists of the White Lotus. And so began the legend of Pai Mei's five point palm exploding heart technique.
The main event made tonight's show. Awesome crowd overall. I wish I didn't have the main event result spoiled for me before the show. But even when I did know it, I was on the edge of my seat at each pinfall.
