Know why he bleached his hair? He wanted to see how it would look before Jericho chopped it off, meesa thinks.

Last night was a bad show. I did like the angle with Kane and RVD...with the gas....I was truely concerned for rob.

And that french **** in the front row....You could tell he was a fake...

Damn, I haven't seen either RAW or Smackdown in a while.  I'm really feeling out of it.

Nash is scheduled to do a movie which required him to have short hair,  thus the Hair vs. Hair match.  It probaly also required the blondehair,  which I don't like.  

I just think the WWE is in a slump right now...  I'm sure it's going to pick up and soon I hope.  As far as the Bischoff/Linda angle,  I'll reserve judgement for now...  I think SS is going to tell alot on what direction things are going to go for the next couple of months...  Hopefully things pick up.

Rumor has it that Nash is supposed to be a Military Leader in the new Punisher movie. :o

Was there a point to the whole Brock Lesnar/Zach Gowen Match?  I can see Vince building a good heel faction with Brock,  A-Train and the Big Show.

I think that the whole Benoit/Guerrero angle is picking up nicely,  especially throwing Tajiri and Rhyno in the mix.  Can anyone see a four way match for the US title in the near future?  I can...

No, I did not order this event.

Summerslam Results

La Resistance def. Dudley Boyz to retain the World Tag Team Titles

Undertaker def. A-Train

Shane McMahon def. Eric Bischoff

Eddie Guerrero def. Rhyno, Chris Benoit, and Tajiri to retain the U.S. Championship

Kurt Angle def. Brock Lesnar to retain the WWE Championship

Kane def. Rob Van Dam

Triple H def. Goldberg, Shawn Michaels, Chris Jericho, Kevin Nash, and Randy Orton to retain the World Heavyweight Championship.

 MY THOUGHTS:
What the hell was this? No title changes, and every single match was predictable. Fatal 4 Way and WWE Title matches sounded like they were the best all night. Why were Goldberg and Triple H the last two left in the Chamber when they did absolutely nothing prior to that? Yawn. Next week is the one year anniversary of the Title on RAW, meaning that The Gay-me has held the title for 11 friggin months.

And last but not least, why did they decide to turn Coach heel? ???

Why does it feel like the early 90's with wrestling nowdays?

It's like they're are just trying "entertain" someone with ADD.
I remember my dream now.

RAW Review.

PROS:

- The ending was pretty good. Very horror movie-esque: "Burn in hell." Classic.
- The Opening segment with Goldberg/HHH was pretty good. At least they're building a feud.
- The women's match was decent this week.
- I'm enjoying Coach's heel turn. He is actually somewhat entertaining now.
- Rosey/Hurricane/Goldust/Storm segments were entertaining again this week. Why not let them wrestle?

CONS:

- Triple H's shoot on Smackdown was unnecessary. If Angle is a "Paper Champion", then Triple H must be a "Paper-Mache(sp?) Champion".  
- I respect Vince McMahon's character and his often great acting, but sheesh. He and his family are taking over both shows with their own personal feuds. Let's see some wrestlers Vince. It's also sad to see them take over the aptly-named "Highlight Reel," which has been the highlight of RAW as of late. Just rename it "The McMahon/Kliq Show". Can we go at least one week without seeing a McMahon?
- Why must Mark Henry return? At least he's with Teddy Long though, and maybe he can get him over. Maybe.
- No point in Orton vs. Maven. Just let Orton feud with Michaels already.
- Dudleys/Resistance = stale, dull, boring, etc. La Resistance's gimmick is old. This war stuff is old. It just reeks of 1998, I'm sorry. If I want politics, I'll turn on CNN or MSNBC.
- Christian needs help to beat Lawler? Oookaay.
- Where was Stacy? And Test? And Steiner?

Overall, RAW was borderline okay this week. I'll give it a C+. Not bad, but not good either.

I think WWE was waiting to see how things would turn out with Goldberg.  There were rumors that his stay may be cut short as WWE was unhappy with his performance.  Now it seems the fans are starting to accept him and his performances are better.  My prediction,  he will beat HHH at Unforgiven for the title.  Finally,  a new Champion.  

Christian is beggining to bore the hell out of me...  I hope he drops the title soon.

On related notes,  maybe Kane will put his mask back on... :P  I also really like the Goldust and Storm angle.  They should put them in the ring soon,  but don't forget mini-dust.  Mark Henry and Teddy Long should be interesting.  And finally,  Hurricane and Rosey is hillarious...  Good angle.

And from what I read also,  the PPV did suck. :(

Except for Brock vs. Angle.
