Welcome back to the Phat Daily Column. Monday Night just went by, and what a night it was. For today, however, I'm very short on time, so I will be brief with the impressions this week. Also today, another federation who just happens to be on TNN had a very interesting rating this week. You know already that I'll discuss it. Without further ado, on to the Phat Daily Column
Note: I have way too many banners right now, so if you could just wait a little bit for me to get through my current ones, then you can send them. Make sure they are in JPG format if you do send one.
My jaw dropped when Sting had gallons of fake blood dropped on him. That sparked a "Holy Shit! Holy Shit!" moment for me. Although I think that method has been done before, it just looked tough they way it poured into the ring. The New Blood then hung Sting up, which made for a very compelling ending in my opinion. Good stuff.
The handicap match between Hogan and Awesome/Kidman was great! I never would have thought to say that about a Hogan match, but I enjoyed it very much. I never thought I'd see Hogan and Mike Awesome work together, oh, about 3 months ago. Hogan stepped his wrestling skills up a notch too, and then he went through tables which made it better! My gosh, this is a new Hogan. Hell has froze over!!!
Quick Notes: Thank god Kimberly only wanted a divorce instead of being pregnant. Phew! Kronic is the WORST tag team I've ever seen. Did you hear those "boring" chants? Oh yeah, they are sooo over. Arquette defeating Bischoff was kinda lame, but whatever sets up DDP to win the title works for me. I'm glad to see Mike Awesome get a good role in WCW. The mixed tag match was rather interesting. Steiner's new music SUCKS. Tank Abbott is worthless now.

Last Word: Well, yet another good week for Nitro. Of course, I keep seeing parallels between Russo's first run and this current run. He started out good and slowly got worse. This show had a bunch of very good high spots, and a few low. Kronic spots were the worst, and a good reason why this show only gets an
It's funny how the WWF books their pay per views now, because they *think* that they only need 1 week to hype a pay per view match. They just have Benoit attack Jericho out of no where, so thus, they have a feud again. So let's jam it more with their main event match. Careless WWF, as the competition is only getting better, so quit making some obvious flaws.
Quick Notes: Opening match between Angle and Rikishi was a joke. I like how Prom for Eddie is on a Sunday. Makes a LOT of sense. Haha, I liked Angle telling the APA how it is. Matt Hardy...hardcore champ? Oh my. Wow, the WWF breaks up two teams who got no crowd reaction during matches, and then they re-tag them up with different partners and wrestle! Oh joy! Val Venis, who really knocked up Terri back in the day(My bad yesterday), defeated Eddie...yes, that was NON TITLE. Dudleys are being wasted right now.

Last Word: This RAW did nothing but bore me this week. Last week was exciting, this week I could hardly stay awake. The WWF gets so lame in their second hour, and they didn't really try in their first this week. Lord knows that they don't notice their rivals getting better each week. Sure, they ratings gap is huge, but they could lose it slowly if they don't step it up. I'll give them a
@That's all I wanted to say for today. Sorry so brief, but I slept in too much today, and I have class real soon. I'm not sure if the Nielsons will be slow on the ratings from Easter or not, so I'm not sure if I'll have the Monday Night Ratings Analysis or not tomorrow. Who knows? See you tomorrow.
