Quick and easy results, cuz I work midnights

-Edge comes out, and gloats about participating in two ECs and winning the title. Jeff comes out and says he is where he is by who he married (sounds familiar, eh?) and yeah. Jeff challenges Edge, hits the Twist of Fate.

-Michelle McCool and Maryse beat Eve Torres and Maria. Good for a Divas match, but I'm still trying to figure out as to why Maria's wasting away on Smackdown. I miss her ditzy announcer role. She was entertaining back then.

-A recap of the Bella Twins out on a date with Miz and Morrison. Shenanigans start when the Colon brothers are involved, and the Bellas get pied. What is this, a kids show? Wait, they are aiming for the PG demographic, right?

-MVP and R Truth beat Chavo and Shelton Benjamin. Wow, are people cheering for MVP? End is pretty cool; Chavo turns on Shelton with a vicious frog splash. Does this make Chavo a face? I really could care less about Shelton OR Chavo...but at least the US title will be defended.

-JR talks to HHH - and yes, they finally come out (on camer) that HHH is married to Steph, and that Vince is his father-in-law. Randy Orgon walked a Fine Line for a long time but now he Crossed The Line. Yeah...decent interview, but kinda melodramatic.

-Umaga beat Scotty Goldman. Na na hey hey goodbye. I'll miss him, but Cold Cabana deserves better than this.

-Vickie Guerrero comes out to some serious heat; she proclaims that neither JBL nor HBK aren't entitled to face off against the Undertaker, since he's on *HER* show...and she chooses Vladimir Kozlov. He comes out, and speaks Russian some more. I'd rather see Kane vs. Taker at Wrestlemania, myself. If Taker's streak is to end, which I haven't read any rumours about, I'd rather see his storyline brother do it, than anyone else.

-JR announces HHH's return to Raw on Monday to confront Randy Orton. I dig it.

-Edge beat Jeff Hardy, after Matt Hardy interfered. Jeff pretty much had it all wrapped up, but NOOOOO! Matt's gotta screw it up for him.

Next week, Matt says it'll be Brother vs. Brother. As Jeff stares his brother down, Edge hits with a spear, and we're out.

Decent Smackdown this week; they're setting up the Matt vs. Jeff storyline, which is pretty good...but I think that it could have been so much better if a title were in play here.

Does anybody think they'll explain how HHH and Steph are now a married couple again despite their divorce paper signing at Vengeance 2002? Or do they assume nobody else is as sad as me to care about things like continuity?

I enjoyed Edge and Jeff's back-and-forth as the opening promo.

Usually Wrestling Pre-taped Dates can be painful, but the Colons and Miz&JoMo = comedy.

No mention of the Gail Kim hardworking athlete promo? Looks like we'll have her as the top female face on SD!

Kozlov called HBK "Shawn Mike" in his broken English promo. Also comedy.

Hopefully they can, even just as a minor aside...there were enough nudge-nudge-wink-wink references to them still being together by Hunter in recent years.

It could be as simple "we got back together and didn't want it made public, especially since we have children now."

I still consider it a mistake to crack open the marriage bottle to get Orton over. When I try to discern just how far this reality radius extends into kayfabe territory, I get a headache.

Is it too late to call the Academy and nominate Trips for that promo?

I got a Kurt Angle vibe from it, myself. But it doesn't matter to me what character she plays as long she gets to work the same style she employed in TNA.

I think it's more along the lines of "it's already well known and documented everywhere so if we reveal it it's not breaking kayfabe".

That, and the WWE was a different landscape in 2002; they used to ignore 'the smarks' and do their own thing, and ever since Matt Hardy was rehired it's almost as if they pander to them, IMO, probably because they are the composition of most of the fanbase these days (who doesn't have a modem?).

Show wasn't bad. It's the first time I've been intrigued in a HHH feud in a while, and I love Kozlov (but that's more of a nastalgia stretch to Ivan Koloff). The best part of Kozlov: he doesn't speak much English, but always seems to know when he's been insulted.

The night that Eric Bischoff was on trial in Dec '05, there was a segment where HHH and Stephanie ran into each other and reconnected. I can only assume that they got back together then.

If I recall correctly, he then laid a big one on Steph right before Vince's eyes.

I get both shows, and I still watch RAW every week (barring a Green Bay appearance on Monday Night Football) and Smackdown only if Survivor is out of season or Friends is a rerun.
