  1. I tried giving 06 ECW some chances but I'm running thin and I'm only at the show after the Hammerstein show with Show/Batista.  Most of the stuff is just boring.  The Rey/RVD match from the Head-to-Head was pretty good and I think there was RVD/Angle.  The novelty of Flair/Show was decent and it was a solid match.  This was probably covered here even in 06 but that Show/Batista match was one of the worst booked matches I've seen in a while and I'm currently also going through 99 Nitro.  At least, they kinda sent people home happy in the end.  Didn't they blame the crowd for how bad everything was and then never run Hammerstein again?

  2. This is a bit out of left field but does anyone have a clue how the nWo Wolfpac merchandise sales were after they turned them and merged the two factions?  When I had my WON sub, I remember reading that the top merch sellers were the Wolfpac.  I'm going through old Nitros around this time and I'm a little baffled why they turned them heel and how it affected their merch sales when they were heels.  I had to cancel my WON sub recently so I can't check old issues myself for anything right now.

  3. This was the first RAW in ages that I actually paid attention to and cared about, probably moreso for the crowd reactions and the unpredictability of it all.  The opening segment was real good, and the less Roman talks the better.  They're aren't going to turn him if his merch is selling hard but they can always walk that heel line a little sometimes and get away with it not affecting his sales.  Angle has potential to be good as GM until of course Steph comes back and emasculates him.  Vince almost seemed like he was reading from a script, which I find hard to believe he was.  He seemed like he was just going through the motions, and to me, wasn't very entertaining like he can be.  Finn returning was nice but like others have said, why is he happy to team with Seth?

    I think its looking like a wrestling mask but with paint. As 87 goes on the paint evolves, some of it looks like auxiliary Kiss members.


    I actually like the mask look. 


    And for comparisons sake. The Morton Downey candy cane look that Ax makes work.

    This is making me want to pull out my Demo comp discs.  I'd probably enjoy it more than last night too.

  5. Not to hijack the thread or anything but I watched it last night and you guys were right.  I don't think I expected much though.  Meltzer had said that he looked exposed halfway through his entrance but I disagree with that.  He looked exposed by that god damned regular count and basically jobbing without jobbing.  Bret and Sting looked like geeks but the celebration afterwards was pretty good.

    There was never such a fucking clusterfuck fuckup of what was a no brainer than the end of Starrcade 97.  Holy shit I forgot just how fucked it was.

    I'm almost up to that on my Nitro/PPV watching.  Sting is so awesome leading up to it and I just got up to Bret's first appearance last night with a very giddy J.J. Dillon trying to stick it to Bischoff.  I actually kinda forget how the Sting/Hulk match ended so it should be fun to watch it again for me.
