Welcome back to the ONE and ONLY Phat Daily Column. It's a wonderful Friday, and things are looking up for the WWF, while on the other hand, looking down for WCW. I'm still bothered by David Arquette getting the world title as I am towards that horrible Twisted Sister remake of "We're Not Gonna Take It" from Ready to Rumble. Ah, whatever, on to the PDC.
-But what will happen at Backlash? Many are predicting a heel turn, but I'm going the other way. I think he'll assist the Rock to win the title because for one, if he did turn heel, he couldn't enforce being a heel, and for two, everyone and their mother is predicting this. The WWF has seen the predictions ever since he came out, and I doubt they would want to let us down by a heel turn. Besides, I think they would want to test the waters to see if Stone Cold's popularity holds up.
-Nice of the WWF to have some quick title changes, like Dean Malenko defeating Scotty Too Hottie for the 6364544th time for the Lightweight title, and then having Crash win back his covetted hardcore title just days before Backlash. Malenko and Scotty fight WAY too much, and their match at Backlash will suffer because the moves have been done so much already. The Hardy feud for the hardcore title took a lot of heat away from the hardcore showdown of Hardcore Holly, Crash Holly, Tazz, and Perry Saturn. Come on WWF.
-I've looked around on the net for a while yesterday for David Arquette articles on his title win for WCW, and only saw a few. That can't be good for WCW, as their planned publicity stunt will fail. WCW did this at the wrong time too, because with the return of Stone Cold, their ratings won't come easily. So come Monday, anything with David Arquette will draw low some very low ratings thanks in part to Backlash and Stone Cold on RAW. Then, the WWF will have swallowed that stupid publicity stunt.
-Ohhh, I guess Vampiro wasn't really serious about getting the release from WCW. He now wants to be a part of WCW, and he loves it! I wouldn't doubt that he'll get some punishment for his efforts, like being taken out of the main event picture. The earlier stunts that he's pulled did the same thing, therefore, he'll get to do it all over again. But hey, he just signed a wonderful deal with ICP's label, so he couldn't be happier, right?
@That's all for today's wonderful edition of the Phat Daily Column. I'll be back tomorrow for some lovely ECW on TNN impressions, which I will look at with honest criticism. It's true, it's true. So until Saturday Morning, just chill till the next episode.
