Well to no one's real surprise, Triple H retained yet again at Wrestlemania. This now presents the dilemma of who will be the next man to lay down to the Game? For Backlash, here is a list of faces Triple H has not squashed... lately.

-Diesel - Please God No!
-Steve Austin - Been there, done that.
-Spike Dudley
-D'Von Dudley
-Trish Stratus
-Bradshaw (when is he due back?)
-Molly Holly (she's a face now, right?)

March 31, 2003 ... the day it officially became ok to become a HHHater.

They'd better invent cloning, since HHH version 2 is the only that guy might get put over.

If RAW runs out of guys, there's always a trade to SmackDown (shudder).

I myself vote for him to fight a rabid squirrel in a burlap sack.

The problem is not "Who is HHH's next opponent?" the problem is "will anyone give a shit now that the past 4 opponents have all been shown to be NOTHING before HHH's mighty onslaught?"

If there's no chance the other guy might win, who gives a fuck? I realise it's wrestling and the outcomes are predetermined, but Sweet Jesus, I'd imagine you have to at least PRETEND it's an even contest in order to get people to pay for it.

I would go bananas if there was some sort of circumstance that made Spike Dudley pin Triple H for the title. Not just because he's the most unlikely, but I think it would be a really interesting angle.

Yeah, they have completely painted themselves into a corner with this one. Based on the outcomes of tonight's matches Rock and HBK are the only viable contenders. And that does no one any good.

I guess Goldberg, but supposedly he's got either Austin and/or Rock lined up. Austin won't do any good after getting CRUSHED by Rocky tonight.

Yeah, I've got absolutley nothing.

Diesel, if he comes back tomorrow. Goldberg's not due 'till Backlash, apparently.

Otherwise... I have no idea. Booker, really, really should have gone over tonight.

Moo hoo ha ha.

My wife was asking me why I was so cheesed after the HHH win. All I could say was "Same old thing"...

If they wouldn't hotshot the belt onto Steiner, I can't see any way they'll do it for Goldberg. They can't rely on Diesel to not fall apart seconds into his next match.

Maybe it's time to make a trade to get a challenger from Smackdown. Of course, that only makes sense if you actually have him drop the belt, rather than what's most likely to happen.

Theoretically, the WWF has only one choice: Another match with Booker. Realistically, though, here comes the scintilliating HHH/Diesel feud that Vince has dreamed about for a year now.

As for Brock... Cena.

Well, they could turn Jericho face again and ... okay, okay.

If it's not Diesel or Goldberg, it'll have to be Austin. Not many other choices. Even Vince seems to have finally realized that Steiner blows, and HBK/Triple H has already been done recently. I really can't see Booker getting another shot -- if they don't put him over at Wrestlemania, it doesn't demonstrate a lot of interest in elevating him. Besides, we have the precedent of RVD to go by.

"next to of course god america i
love you land of the pilgrims' and so forth oh

country tis of centuries come and go
and are no more what of it we should worry
in every language even deafanddumb
thy sons acclaim your glorious name by gorry
by jingo by gee by gosh by gum
why talk of beauty what could be more beaut-
iful than these heroic happy dead
who rushed like lions to the roaring slaughter
they did not stop to think they died instead
then shall the voice of liberty be mute?"

I like Austin as a next opponent. The match is fresh enough for now.. and they could even start it tonight with HHH badgering Austin about coming back only to lose the big one... and of course, Triple H can say how he came out on top last night, just to piss Austin off a little bit more... I'd watch that match again.

Well, there are still a couple ways that they could salvage the Booker T feud. They could have Booker go over in a rematch, at Backlash or even on free tv. Of course, this would totally confirm everything the net believes about HHH, ie. his unwillingness to job on the big show. For my money though, what they should do is have HHH drop the belt due to "injury", take some time off and give the belt to Booker in a tourny. Then you can build to a rematch down the road.

i have to give the Fed the benefit of the doubt here, that booker is getting his big rematch. because really, that was in no way a decisive victory by triple h.

... or maybe i'm just being really optimistic. well, i guess we'll find out tonight...

I love wrestling, but the WWE may be able to finally end my fandom after 20+ years if they don't come up with something soon.

I hope that Booker can get a rematch and then finally go over and keep the belt through a couple of PPVs at the minimum. I give that 50% chance of happening, though.

It is said that there aren't any people positioned to pursue HHH. I think Jericho still needs a win from HBK, and hopefully a rematch in which Jericho goes over is in the plans. A strong heel Jericho could be a challenger based on the Heel/Heel dynamic, even if Jericho emerged as a face during the match, he could instantly re-heel himself, hopefully. (I think heel Jericho is more entertaining than face Jericho.)

I think Rocky is the only person who could go over HHH, but he's short-timing us now. I despise Bill Goldberg, he doesn't respect wrestling, he doesn't appreciate the fans, and he brags about injuring wrestlers (I read an article online about 3 or 4 years ago where he was bragging about injuring LaParka), and he isn't safe in the ring.

I put myself in the same boat that is hoping that somehow they'll work with Booker and put the belt on him within the next month. I'm also hoping the Easter Bunny Brings me candy on April 20.

The only logical match is: When The Kliq Collides. That's right, Nash vs. Michaels vs. Trip.

Bad news (or, well, good news depending on your fan leaning).

According to 1W, the idea was to keep HHH as a strong heel so he can take on Goldberg at Bad Blood, the next PPV after Backlash. So even if Booker gets a rematch, he'll be jobbing again.

I wonder if trips will drop the belt to Goldberg? PRESUMABLY he will, but I was presuming he'd drop it yesterday, too...

Yeah...I heard this Chris Benoit guy's been looking a little TOO good lately...

Thing is, he can't look any "stronger". He's gone over pretty much all of the RAW roster to the point of the crowd not biting on the majority of the near-falls in their match.

I seriously thought the Hangover was the finish until it was obvious that Booker was taking too long to make the cover.

If the plan is to have HHH drop the belt to Goldberg in the long run then I think we can rule out the possibility of HHH being responsible for that decision.

HHH would probably sooner job clean to a foetus in the main event of WM than lose to that guy in any way shape or form given the legit heat between the pair.

If on the other hand the plan is to give the belt to Diesel then I surrender myself to the HHHaters and will give up defending the guy.

This is the only way I see the future working, but it requires a bit of fantasy booking on my part, so I apologize if you're not into that kind of thing.

Tonight, HHH cuts a promo giving credit to Booker for taking him to the limit, and unlike some of his past opponents he actually might deserve a rematch...if he beats a friend of his...Kevin Nash.
Booker gets past Nash and wins the rematch with Trips at Backlash thanks to interference from Goldberg. Trips gets Goldberg in a grudge match at Bad Blood. Booker meanwhile can feud with Nash (perhaps) over the title, eventually (and unfortunately) losing it back to Trips at Summerslam (maybe in a 3-way also involving Goldberg).
But, alas, this leaves nothing for Austin to do. I have a feeling he might be rethinking his decision to come back.

This is what I'd LIKE to see, but my gut tells me Booker's done with the main event for now. Maybe he can get another shot when the traffic jam at the top clears up a bit.

Well, to NOT answer the question... In terms of wrestling films, I would heartily reccommend the Foul King, the greatest fictional wrestling film ever. (Korean, my avatar id swiped from the film) I would also suggest looking for Calamari Wrestler.
