Welcome back to the Phat Daily Column. Now that I'm loaded on caffeine from breakfast, it's time to look back at the Monday Night War. Again for this week, the US Open just had to take the WWF's spot this week. That means WCW was free....well, that Rams vs. Broncos game was mighty tempting. Ratings will come out later today, but until then, let's look at the shows.
Let me say this: who put all of the dinosaurs in the cage? This was NOT a good show, as you had wrestlers who could barely move anyway, let alone make a Triple Cage match look good. The qualifying matches were ridiculous, as the booking was very bad for each. What the hell, Vampiro and Muta can't easily destroy Sting? Booker T can't make his brother, Stevie Ray, look good if he tried.
And what was with Russo and Kevin Nash? How the hell was the ending a swerve on how Nash and Russo didn't like each other? Their acting dissention did NOT screw Booker T, Kronic, Goldberg, or Sting. That just didn't make any damn sense whatsoever.
Then you have the Natural Born Thrillers playing DO YOUR FAVORITE WWF MOVES when they attacked the Cat.
Poor Lance Storm was angling tonight, with Major Gunns. Hey Storm, that is NOT fat in those things. You just can't burn off silicon like you can for fat.
At least a certain rap group didn't happen to win the Tag Titles. Also, since when did Kronic become the Acolytes?
The true brightspot of Nitro was Bill Goldberg during his match against Shane Douglas. He was whipping out some intense moves, and he somewhat returned to his old form from 1998, maybe better.
Mama-Cita....Eddie Guerrero is your new Intercontinental Champ, but that's his second title Jerry Lawler, not his first gold. Of course, I don't consider the European Title a belt with all of that colored shit on the front. You knew this would happen, as Chyna will have doubts about her man Eddie. She will now lean more towards the Game-ahhh again.
Oh God, don't let Val Venis......I mean Mr. Wrestling 4(© Wrestle Palooza Audio Show) ever handle the mic again. His speech was so annoying to watch, as I've never seen anybody try to talk with their hands so much as he did. Gee, I wonder if he's going to turn in the future....
Man, that stuff with Mideon is very messed up. I'm sure the PTC is calling a few sponsors as you read this column. Hey, who let the Bossman out of his cage...I mean Jakked/Heat circuit?
Good main event for RAW, as The New Age Edge/Christian retain the titles again! Gee, looks like we'll have another 4 way match at a Pay Per View. Yuck!
The Fatal 4 Way was born, and ugh, it was terrible for the main event at Wrestlemania! Big Show was barely in there, Mick Foley was shamefully eliminated, and Triple H and the Rock wrestled the same kind of brawl as previous matches.
At Summerslam, we had Triple H and Kurt Angle and the Rock go at it, again, diluting the main event. It wasn't a bad match, given the angle between Kurt and Triple H, but a one on one match is much better...which is my point. Now, we have Kane vs. Rock vs. Undertaker vs. Chris Benoit.
Just look at the recent singles matches for main events. Rock vs. Triple H(Stone Cold returned), the Ironman match between Triple H and Rock, Rock vs. Benoit, and so forth. The one on one matches had great drama, and each of the one on one main event matches were considered the match of the year by fans.
Maybe it's just me?
