A funny thing happened on the way to the recap: I quit. I sat down, watched Raw, did my recapping thing, and realized that this wasn't fun. At all. Recapping wasn't fun, watching wasn't fun. I don't think I'll watch Raw next week, but I'll probably watch SmackDown!. Maybe. If there's nothing better to do. I'll probably watch Raw after Armageddon, just to see how Triple H won the World Heavyweight Championship back. I might even watch the week after that, if I feel like it and there's nothing better to do. A Gugspeak seems unlikely from my point of view, and since I'm the columnist, it's pretty unlikely. I'm sorry for the short notice, and (at the risk of sounding self-important) I hope that my leaving doesn't shake the very foundations of the wrestling world. I don't have a Nielsen box on my TV, so if everybody who watched Raw tonight watches Raw next week (except me), there'll be no drastic change in the ratings. Ah, politics. Bye now.

Well that's a damn shame. I was reading what you had done (as far as setting up for Jacqueline/Victoria), & was having a fine old time. Maybe you'll feel a bit better once you finish throwing up. (Feel better soon.)
I believe Roderick wasn't there because they had to cancel the Valpo show, so they didn't want to use him for just a single show. Which really sucks because this show really could have used another good match.
