I just read this at wwf.com, which reports that referee Charles Robinson is taking a leave of absence because of his wife, Amy. Amy Robinson has cancer again. When they went to the doctor four weeks ago, it was removed. But, when they returned two weeks later, it was back. I'm not sure what type of cancer this is, but from what I understand, it is inoperable. Amy has been undergoind chemotherapy, but it has not worked. My thoughts and prayers go out to Charles Robinson and his family during this time very traumatic period of time.
I was happy to see L'il Natch ref the Flair match. We were hoping that he would help screw the UT.
"The best reason for committing loathsome & detestable acts -and let's face it, I am considerably something of an expert in the field - is purely for their own sake. Monetary gain is all very well, but it dilutes the tastes of wickedness to a lower level that is obtainable by anyone will an overdeveloped sense of avarice. True and baseless evil is as rare as the purest good - and we all know how rare THAT is." - Acheron Hades, THE EYRE AFFAIR by Jaspar Fforde
Well that just sucks to hear. I communicated with L'il Naitch a bit last year through a few chance encounters, and he was always a very nice guy. I really hope for the best for him, and wish him the best in this time.
I'm gonna go ahead and give a shout-out to Little Naitch as well-- the man who, despite working for “WCW”, still had the balls to kick Shane McMahon out of the Rock-Booker T match at SummerSlam.
Yes, I know he was booked to do that, but it was great to see, nontheless. And matches that he officiates tend to go very well. He's one of the best in the business at what he does, and my thoughts go out to him and his wife during this trying time in their lives.

As far as card placement is concerned, sure Rhodes and Dibiase are better than they were last year. But I agree with i before e in that in kayfabe/storyline terms, they are worse off and that's where the distinction lies.
