HHH gets a sledgehammer and Nash has a chair. HHH punks out and drops the hammer. Kevin Nash looks great and he looks to be in great shape. I hope he manages to stay around for longer than one match. If you remember he last hurt himself on the first match back after hurting himself. (Co-Webmaster's Note: Nash came out to his old Diesel theme song, but was referred to by the announcers as Nash. His hair was also dyed darker than when we last saw him, making him look more like the old Diesel character. Does this mean he is still coming back as Diesel since they didn't refer to him as Diesel? It would appear so since he's done everything to look like his old character, and is being listed on house show cards as "Diesel." There possibly will be a storyline reason they will refer to in the upcoming weeks to explain why he has gone back to his old gimmick, and maybe thats why they referred to him as Nash tonight.)Thoughts:
Nowinski is really an ass, but I guess that quality is good for a heel.
The WWE better not ever start any angles that show anything less than total support for the American Troops in iraq or I WILL quit watching. It is not called for to make light of the war in iraq.
I really liked the way Steiner kicked Nowinski's ass, Nowinski deserved to have it handed to him.
After all this time the WWE is finally showing WCW content, I hope that Goldberg lives up to his hype, ego and all.
I miss all of the Rocks old stuff. From "The Millions and millions", and "if ya smell what the Rock is cookin" and even "Finally", they were just classic.
I really don't like the total waste of time that the Dudley Boyz have become. The whole feud means nothing to me at all, it needs to end, I mean really who gives a rats ass
The Jeff Hardy vs. Rock match was really awesome, but the dopey fans kept chanting Rocky.
Well the wrong frickin announcer quit tonight. I hope that JR isn't gone for long.
It's Jerry Lawler and his puppy loving ass that needs to go. I wish that Bobby Heenan would be willing to come announce again. Did anyone notice that during the wrestlemania preview promo that he was talking funny. I hope Bobby is alright. (Co-Webmaster's Note: Bobby has been battling throat cancer, that's the reason for his change in voice. Read our interview with him right here on WrestleView for more information on that.)
Is there anyone out there that thinks the coach is totally in the wrong business. Coach has I swear to God the most annoying voice on this freakin dumbass planet. He should take up work reading to coma patients because they would wake up to kick his ass, and get him to shut up. If Coach stays on RAW I will need alot of extra Excedrin to contine watching RAW
Thanks for all 12 of you who corrected my spelling of Goldust. Point freakin taken.
It is awesome to have Kevin Nash back, make fun of me if you want but I am a big Kevin Nash/Diesel Mark
Get out and buy tickets for the Metallica tour this summer! The new album St. Anger is coming, June 10th, Buy it!!
