Welcome to the Phat Daily Column, as there is no such thing as taking days off for the weekend! What a week it has been for WCW. I've never seen one federation go through so much in one week than they have. Anyway, this is Royal Rumble weekend, with so much hype in the air about who will show up. I'll hype that bigtime tomorrow, but today, I have the usual stuff along with the quality ECW on TNN show round up. On to the PDC!
-The WWF is willing to sign Malenko and Saturn at a lower price, and they are very interested in Chris Benoit. The WWF has to be happy though about the recent WCW shake up. Just look at their firepower after they get Benoit. It's not everyday that you get two top notch "wrestlers" like Tazz and Benoit becoming additions to your roster. They are both young, and tough as hell. One thing about Tazz is that he has an attitude to go with his wrestler, whereas Benoit can only speak with his wrestling ability. I still can't wait for the Chris Benoit vs. Steve Blackman match in a "winner gets charisma" match. That's one I'd pay to see.
-Oh my, I like some of the e-mail that I get on Billy Kidman. I ripped on him for staying the other day, saying how fighting jabronies like Psychosis and Prince Whatever was a joke if that's the push that WCW intends on giving him. Oh yeah, I also got it for the fact that he gets a US title shot at Superbrawl. Oh yay, fight over the title that Steve "Mongo" McMicheal used to hold. Fight over the title that David Flair used to hold. The US title is meaningless, and he's going to lose that match at Superbrawl because it seems that Jeff Jarrett will get his way with the new booking team as well. Yeah, BIG push there. Oh wait, Torrie Wilson will make a difference, right? Well, you could say that it's equivalent to a push, but she'll be gone again before you know it. You should've stuck with Benoit, Saturn, Malenko, and Douglas. You'll now regret it.
Dreamer/Raven vs. Roadkill/Doring was an OK match, but I don't like Raven helping out Francine. In fact, there isn't much that I've liked about Raven since his return. He left ECW the most evil guy around, then he goes to WCW and shows his crybaby side, and now that he's back in ECW, he has some of that WCW stuff in him still. Shake it off!!! At least Roadkill and Doring finally get put over, a little. It's also funny how everyone and their mother ran down afterwards. Corino, Rhino, Jack Victory, Sandman, and Dusty Rhodes all came down for a fight.
I think Super Crazy is the official spokesman for ECW is TNN. He's on EVERYWEEK, and he salutes the TNN sign at the entrance way. Oh, he fought Tajiri for the 50th time(sarcasm) tonight, but this match was different than all the rest. Tajiri was insane, as he was throwing chairs, tables, and then he was taunting Super Crazy. The dude was sick tonight....but I liked it. Good match once again between the two, as there was more attitude in this one.
Rob Van Dam vs. Mike Awesome. Damn, if they have that one on their next pay per view, it's a MUST BUY!!! Rob Van Dam, face it, is the real champion of ECW. Awesome loses to little runts like Spike Dudley, and Van Dam NEVER loses. Besides, the TV title has had better champs. Taz held it forever until Bam Bam beat him for it. Then, Van Dam defeated Bam Bam after a good television run. The television title, sadly, is the true world title in ECW. Oh yeah, interesting stuff with Sabu helping Awesome kick RVD's teeth in.
@That's it for today. I'll be back with some Royal Rumble hype, along with ALL of my predictions for me to mess up on. Joy Joy Joy!! So I'll see you tomorrow then....same Tito place, same Tito time, same Tito channel!!!!!!!!!
