Yes indeed, this is yet another edition of the Phat Daily Column. I this very column I will discuss the usual daily news in the wrestling world, along with some thoughts on the WWF's show that they call Smackdown. Also today, once again, no Hardcore Revolution game review. Who knows, maybe I'll finally get to rent it in 2 weeks or so. Does anybody that live around Tito want to invite him over to play ECW's Hardcore Revolution? :) Anyway, let's move on with this Friday edition of the Phat Daily Column.
-Bob Ryder of 1wrestling.com mentioned that Superbrawl has an early buyrate of maybe 0.20 or 0.15. This is absolutely terrible folks, as this can add to WCW's recent ratings lows. For Superbrawl, WCW should have realized that you have to book a good show in order to get buyers. Sure, it had SOME decent booked matches, but nothing that I'd jump around for. It also showed that a match involving Sid and Jeff Jarrett wasn't a big draw at all, and it will lead to yet another low buyrate for Uncensored.
-Gee, does the win by X-Pac and Road Dogg vs. Edge/Christian mean that they are now the #1 contenders, or was it a non-#1 contender match? Maybe I missed something here. The WWF pulled a WCW on the Terri Runnels angle, as she is already having problems with the team she switched to. Now that she's broken up with the Hardys and having problems with Edge, what is there to do? I still don't know why she turned on the Hardys. Oh well. One thing you can say about Terri, is the fact that she's very pneumatic.
-Was anybody else pissed that Triple H was replacing Shane in the main event match like I was? It was a good main event tag match, but I was hoping to see Shane wrestle. For some reason, I feel that he's very entertaining to watch in the ring, and I'd rather see him wrestle than the best heel in the business. Oh well, but I'm still hoping for him to wrestle at Wrestlemania. I bet the Rock's pinning of Triple H will set some kind of special match up for RAW to enable the Rock to get to the Wrestlemania main event.
-No Mark Henry angle! Yipee!! Unless I missed something? Hey, the Radicals won their 6 man match. I guess they had some WEAK opponents. I think that Test is one of the best "wrestlers" in the business, but somebody buy that man charisma. He's so emotionless in the ring. Sgt. Slaughter put up a good fight against Kurt Angle, and Angle beat the former WWF champion cleanly. Call it coincidence with Kane chokeslamming Devon on Smackdown, as the Wall chokeslammed Crowbar on Thunder. They were taped the same night, so don't bitch at the WWF for copycatting. Bitch at them for a horribly performed chokeslam by Kane. If you saw Thunder, the Wall gave Crowbar one of the hardest chokeslams that I've ever seen, and he did it jumping off the side of the ring aprin and onto the table. Kane just dropped Devon through the table.
-Be real sure to watch ECW on TNN tonight at 8pm Eastern Time, as this week, ECW could very well defeat WCW Saturday Night! From the looks of Thunder and Nitro, Saturday Night is very due for some horrible ratings. Therefore, ECW might actually defeat that show and slowly crawl towards any other lower-end show. I know I'm cheering them on in this effort, as things could get very interesting if ECW were to get better ratings than that wretched show. I bet if ECW pulls it off, WCW will really be plugging Saturday Night on their weekday shows. That would be so funny.
@That's all for today. I'll be back tomorrow to give some "honest and nonbiased criticism" to ECW on TNN like I have been for every show this week. Yeah, besides, Heat, which I wasn't home to see, I've covered every show this week. So until the next column, just chill..till the next episode!
