Finally, the Tito, is done with School.....until January. It's been a rough quarter for me, especially since I've been totally burnt out for the last several weeks. However, now I'm totally off from school, and the only thing I have to do now is writing this very column. Damn I hate school. :)
Oh yeah, before we begin, let me say that I was able to play a *little* of No Mercy yesterday. Now I only played about half of a match, therefore, I can't give a full review since I didn't check out all of the options and features, along with playing many matches. However, I'm very impressed with the graphics upgrade of the game, and for the fact that the wrestlers seem larger. Since I'm a die-hard Wrestlemania 2000 player, I sort of noticed that it's not as fast as the other THQ games. But I don't know? I'll try to find some dollars here or there to buy it and/or find somewhere to play it to give a full review. Or I could rent it now?
Since school is now over, I'm at home. Yes, that's where the evil Compaq is, which has crashed on me many times. However, the Gateway that Ohio University provides is just as bad, if not worse since the problems with the Novell software are F'N annoying! Also since I'm home, I have access to all of my old tapes(thank God), and to many video rental or video sales stores. Hopefully, that will mean more media reviews, which I haven't had in quite some time. (Sorry)
Without any more introduction, let's Get Rowdy....NOOOO! That would lead to a non-popping crowd. On to the PDC.

See, I like this stuff with Diamond Dallas Page and Kevin Nash, as the whole NBT-Nash feud is one of the more interesting ones in WCW. However, at what expense does this angle come? Jindrak/O'Haire has just been buried. The stupid title change in Germany totally wrecked them anyway, and then sending in a horrible tag partner for Wright and the Perfect Event of all teams to win the titles. Why couldn't Jindrak/O'Haire get a rematch? Now, DDP and Nash will most likely win them, and probably won't ever lose them. Argh!!
Horrible, horrible match with Duggan/Storm vs. Rection/Meng. I was getting sick to my stomach seeing Lance Storm sell their offense. Didn't Storm just get a shot at Booker T on Thunder?
I enjoyed the stuff with Kwee Wee and Mike Sanders getting squashed by Bill Goldberg. That air-spear by Goldberg was just spectacular. You know, Goldberg has his share of impacting ways to use that spear. Then, Flair pulled a fast one on Sanders, allowing him to get squashed too. I guess that's two more for Goldberg's streak that seems to be much slower than the first "streak".
God, I can't believe Buff Bagwell is actually getting a push here. For one, he's wrestled the same damn match since 1996, with the same attitude as well. Two, you never know when he'll strike a WCW employee again. The sad thing is that WCW has so many other guys who should be way ahead of Bagwell, but yet WCW insists on pushing a guy who was "over" in 1997. Remember WCW, this is the year 2000, so why not welcome yourself to this year already.
The show started up with Stephanie coming out to address Stone Cold about her "injured" husband Triple H. Gee, Triple H said that he used the McMahon family, but now Stephanie is there with him again? What about Kurt Angle, eh Stephanie? Austin would later come down and end the interview, thank God.
RTC retains the Tag Titles. When will Vince get the *hint* that Bull Buchanan, Val Venis, and the Goodfather are 3 wastes of television time, and by putting them together, it makes it unfortunate for teams like the Dudleys or Hardys to work with? I guess this is what you get for being in Cruise Control, eh?
Decent tag match with Rock/Jericho vs. Kane/Rikishi, although the Rock should be dead by now. When a 400 pounder nails you with a jackhammer on a Monday, flattens you on a Tuesday, and then flattens you on a Sunday, I don't really think you should be able to move a muscle. But hey, this IS the WWF, where Triple H doesn't even break any bones from being dropped in that car last night. So what the fuck did he injure then to be out of action?
Wow, when will the WWF notice that K-Kwick and Road Dogg's entrance doesn't get a pop? If you taped it, watch the crowd during their singing....NOBODY IS GETTING ROWDY!!!!! Even worse, the untalented Billy Gunn led his team to victory! Oh by the way, Eddie Guerrero has talent, you know?
I liked the women's match, with Ivory and
Mona Molly Holly. I suppose the dress was bothering Ivory too much, eh? This match proved why Mona was a great buy, because she can actually "wrassle", unlike Lita who can only hit spots.
Undertaker managed to not only make the World Champion, Kurt Angle, look bad, but the top heel team Edge/Christian look bad too! I guess the crowd in the arena was loving it, so what does it matter?
@That's all for today. I'm going to see if I can get the Bill Goldberg book sometime soon, so that we may have a review on that piece of work. Until tomorrow's PDC, stay out of trouble.
