Spoiling The Illusion

WWE Badd Blood
- Boy am I glad to see I'm not the only one who thought the Hell In The Cell match dragged too long. Seriously, I can admire HHH & HBK going the distance, but they just dragged it as they took too long to recover from each other's offense. They could have benefitted from a faster pace too.

- Obviously the first thing to point out is Kane being all pissed off about not being No.1 Contender anymore since he blew his shot at Badd Blood. It's not the first time it's happened to him so why should he be so angry about it now?
- Why did Kane only attack HBK and not HHH? It would have made all the sense in the world for him to beat up HHH since logically HHH WON the Hell in the Cell match and not HBK. They could have at least have Kane take a shot at HHH before HHH bails and leaves HBK to Kane's wrath. Or maybe they could have had GM Bisch announce first WHO the No.1 contender was?
- The Lita/Kane angle already gets my vote for WORST angle of the year. I don't think we'll see anything else that can top this pile of crap. At least Bradshaw on SmackDown is making more sense story-wise. I could write up a whole column on the crap in this story to point out all the holes in it. Pregnancy angles NEVER work. Except that one time Stephanie McMahon faked it to manipulate HHH. But that was intentional faking! And the pay-off was good! NO GOOD can come from this angle with Lita and Kane.
- OK, I totally LOVED the Highlite Reel segment with Eugene, but COME ON! If Eugene really is HHH's biggest fan, he most probably has seen all the times he's backstabbed people and in general is not a nice person or someone you could trust.

WWE SmackDown
- Great. Bradshaw loses his spot on CNBC and what does WWE do? Take his appology off WWE.com and use it as an angle! Brilliant! On top of that, not ONCE did they mention on air WHY he was no longer working for CNBC. Jealous of his success? YEAH RIGHT!
