Welcome one and all to the very first edition of "A Touch of Sweetness" here in the great community of *gives thumbs up* HARDCORELOVERS!!
Firstly I have got to say, if anyone you have UPN, watch Smackdown! It's going to have a damn good segment, remember Vince and Angle lost that tag match so some ass kissing is going to take place. Trust me you will enjoy I, I know if I had UPN I would certainly enjoy it.
Now moving on to some RAW stuff. I couldn't tell you much about the opening segment cuz I kinda fell asleep, but woke up just as it was finnishing.
I just have to say, Kurt Angle has a great character. I know many of you don't look at Kurt Angle as your Olympic Hero like I do, but you can't deny that he is good with his character. I mean he is so stupid, and says some of the most stupid things, and it's absolutely great!
I am a little dissapointed in the WWF with the whole teaming of Albert and Scotty 2 Hotty. Albert can be so much more than a tag team wrestler, especially with a mediocre partner like Scotty. I mean Albert is one of the biggest men the WWF has and they stick him in the Tag division? I mean hell this guy can gorilla press Kane for christ's sake. I know that there is somewhat of a lack of tag teams in the WWF at the moment, but Albert is not a guy that you want to get lost in the mix of tag team wrestlers, I mean look what it did to the career of Billy Gunn.
Christian is another guy with a great character. I am not even a huge fan of Christian, but I like his mic work. He is funny and makes some good promo's. You just gotta love a guy who acts like those dumb cocky jocks in High School.
Damn...Is The Rock lucky or what? Not only is he the World Champion, has a great looking wife, a next big action star, but he got to kiss that Canadian Candy, Trish Stratus. I gurantee the Rock got some 'Stratusfaction' out of that, and I wouldn't be suprised if the The Peoples Strudel started to warm up a bit, because hell I know I know I would be thinking about eating a slice of Trish's homemade pie. But moving on...
Does the APA really ever wrestle anymore? It's like they just sit in the back and drink beer all the time, never wrestling, just doing little vignettes. This is a team that should be used more often.
Does anyone else think Matt Hardy is a dick? I don't really like either Hardy, but I so wanna see Jeff beat the hell out of him at the PPV, even if Jeff doesn't exactly drive on the right side of the road...if you know what I mean.
I must say I got a kick out of seeing Booker T steal Austin's truck. I guess he learned that back in the days when he grew up in Harlem....oh wait that's right, he's from Houston not Harlem, I can see how they can get the two mixed up. See this is one thing that pisses me off royally. It makes wrestling look stupid when The Taker for 10 years has hailed from Death Valley, then all of a sudden he is from Houston? I mean I understand it fits the character and all but it also makes it look really silly. Like how Kane was from parts unknown? Well, if he is The Undertaker's brother wouldn't he be from the same place as the Undertaker? Just a thought...
You gotta love Flair, I mean you really do. This guy is great, he is like what, 14 time World Champion? I expect to see some good things with the likes of the super faces, being Ric Flair, Stone Cold, and The Rock. Should make for some great tv.
Ok, what the hell was Tazz staring at the majority of his little segment? Was their something on the floor? I don't have any idea. I suppose he was suppose to be looking down at Regal, but it just looked stupid. I am a huge Taz (yes Taz not Tazz, the old skool taz didn't suck like the WWF is making this one suck.), but this just made him look like a freaking retard.
On a small not, Edge totally reeks of awesomeness
There was another one of those WWF "Desire" promo's again with the Creed music, this time with Austin. I enjoy these things, they let me relive some great wrestling moments. I am hoping to see more soon.
Now enough with the RAW information, there have been rumors flying around about 2 separate divisions in the WWF. I read this off of www.TPWW.com :
-- Plans are set and it looks as if January 7th will be the date we see the change of the WWF separating into two different promotions when the WWF sets up a draft-like scenerio.
The way the WWF looks to go about this is they will create two "divisions" which will be given it's own name. No details have been released concerning the names of each of the divisions but it is going to be very similar to the NFL (National Football League) with them having the NFC and the AFC. Plans look to have one half of the roster exclusively on RAW every Monday night and the other half of the roster exclusively on SmackDown! every Thursday night. The WWF has no plans on using the wCw brand name in this upcoming change and each division will be simply labeled as the "WWF". However, the only question that remains is if one of the two divisions will be the weaker one than the other. Sources are saying that Vince McMahon has no intent of setting up one division as being labeled "the weaker one" than the other. What the WWF plans on doing is placing Stone Cold Steve Austin in one division and The Rock in the other allowing both to be the top babyfaces in each of there selected division.
Once this plan goes into effect, Linda McMahon has stated that each individual division will have it's own Pay Per View each month starting after WrestleMania. So where does this leave House Shows? Many thought the WWF would send there "A" roster to a larger market while sending there "B" roster to a smaller market. That doesn't look to be the case because Vince McMahon wants to have the two divisions be separate yet equal at the same time. However, any wrestlers you see exclusively on RAW or exclusively on SmackDown! will not wrestle against each other at the House Shows. Questions concerning the WWF Title and the World Title have come up but not many details are known at this time. We hope to provide more on this very big story in the coming weeks.

Sounds very interesting to me, but at the same time very disappointing. Not only can I not watch Pay Per View's anymore because of the Direct TV deal, but now I only get to watch half of the WWF a week because I don't get Smackdown? This sucks hardcore! I only get to watch either the Rock of Austin? Only Triple H or Jericho? I would go mad, stark raving mad! Bit by bit the WWF is going to be losing fans. Not to mention that around this time is when the WWF is suppose to pick up the big three. The big three being, Scott Hall, Kevin Nash, and Scott Steiner. So there is a good chance I will never see this guys again and it is upsetting to me.
Now speaking of WWF new recruits, the WWF is going to be making rosters cuts in early January, around the 2nd I believe. This is to free up money to get the big three an to try to lure Goldberg in as well. Other names have been thrown up in the air as well, such as Rey Mysterio Jr., Juventud Gurrera, Jeff Jarett, as well as a couple of others. This is looking great for the WWF because these are definitely some great guys to have on your roster.
Well that about wraps up this edition, I hope you all enjoyed it. There should be another up around this time next week. Also, I will try to add a little "Question and Answer' section to this as well, so send me in any questions you have and I will try to answer them to the best of my ability. Also if you have any feedback you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can simply reply to this post. Until next time, I'm out.
