OK, so who else thought Vince was PISSED at how the Sopranos ended and he wanted to give it his OWN ending that seemed to make some kinda sense ??? :lol:

For those who missed the rest (you missed a nice Lashley vs Benoiut match too)

to Raw:
Booker T
Bobby Lashley (Raw needed some affirmative action ??) who then gets stripped of the ECW Title
Snitsky :blink:
Ken Kennedy

To Smackdown:
Khali (nothing great about this 7 foot stack of AIDS)
Torre Wilson ... really... wasted draft pick!!! (though MVP's reaction was gold.. oh lordy lord.. WHITE WOMAN ...woooo!!)
Chris Masters
Ric Flair

to ECW
Boogeyman
Chris Benoit (man Punk vs Burke vs Benoit for the belt might make me WATCH ECW)

Nice commentary on the Vince exploding limo:

Vince isn't really dead, even though his limo blew up to end RAW in a very Sopranos-like moment. But WWE.com has posted the following kayfabed story (since we initially posted this article, the story has been updated with more details, including no confirmation that his body was removed from the "crime scene"):

Wilkes-Barre, Pa. - A night originally designated Mr. McMahon Appreciation Night turned deadly when the WWE Chairman's limousine burst into a fiery explosion just moments after Mr. McMahon stepped into it. Permanently uprooting the world of sports-entertainment, the Chairman has been presumed dead in Wilkes-Barre, Pa. Check back with WWE.com as more details become available on this shocking news.
We'll have more on this as the story develops...

...in the meantime, my opinion:

Wow, that was great. If WWE doesn't start "killing off" on-air characters regularly (and really, why should they?) AND they are serious about taking Mr. McMahon off of television permanently, this was complete brilliance. They out-Sopranos'd The Sopranos and delivered a shocking ending when all we were expecting was a promo, some booing and a defiant scowl. Wrestling fans have barely even wondered how WWE would write Vince off of television, figuring that day would never come.

But if Vince really does want to stay off the air, retire as an on-air character... what better way to do it? Have him lose a "loser leaves town" match? Meh.

This was a completely fitting and bizarre ending to a bizarre WWE character that I'll miss... and appreciate.

I saw CRASHER trip a kid on skates and then he stole the kids lunch money and slapped his mom when she came to pick him up.. All because the kid looked at his crease

I appreciated the ending..... I was shocked because at 11:07 they had the story on WWE.COM

I am thinking it is going to turn into a huge investigation and one of the people who did the tribute was the one behind the bombing... Stone Cold? Piper? Snuka? Costas, LOL

I don't think they would actually incorporate a wrestler murdering the boss of the company in their plotlines. My guess is they reveal that Vince faked his own death.

but in unbelievably bad taste.

Revenge for Owen as a plotline? I think even the WWE wouldn't go that far.

You never saw Kaite Vick did you ??
Or the fact that Eddie Guerrero got more airtime as a dead martyr then he did as WORLD CHAMPION???

This is right up Vince's alley... now getting Bret to go along with it is a DIFFERENT concept... though apparently they have Davey Boy Smith and Jim Niedhart's kids under contrct and Bret's kid is around for the signing too...

so WHO KNOWS with VKM what VKM thinks???

Now let me explain why you NEED a Draft on a Wrestling Show :P

Right now the WWE is spilt into three sub-gropus by show...
Monday Night Raw...
WWECW on Tuesdays
and Friday Night Smackdown

Each show has it's own champions and shows and storylines... if you wrestle on Smackdown usually you stay on Smackdown and have no effect on the other 2 shows (even though ECW is shown live after the 8-10pm Smackdown taping), same with Raw and ECW...

HOWEVER.. being as wrestling is brutal and physically demanding show (anyone who doubts this.. come over and I will show you Shane vs Kurt Angle and be DAMNED if you don't feel THEIR pain when it's over)... people get hurt... and right now the WWE injured reserve list looks like:
HHH
Shawn Michaels
Booker T
Ken Kennedy
the Undertaker
Rey Mysterio Jr.

and these are just the main guys who can't work on TV now....
so once a year (and also to freshen up storylines and give new feuds) you clump all the guys together on Raw and re-distribute the Pizza Pie accordingly!!!

That's what happened last night
and sadly instead of being about the DRAFT it was about VKM's last stand :P

Who are Davey Smith and Niedharts Kids? anyone i know?


Harry Smith and I think Nattie Niedhart
both are in OVW now

I hope you're right. Bret Hart's return would require me to check out the show, that would be compelling stuff.

If it's someone like Eric Bischoff or Paul Heyman though, forget this crap.

I'll put him on the I hope he did it list

WWE.com posted an updated article concerning the Vince McMahon storyline; in it, the company notes that United States federal agents have taken over the investigation.

It should be clear to all WWE fans that this story is completely a work. Based on a WWE press release issued Tuesday, which says, "While some might say "The Sopranos" went out with a whimper, last night on USA Network, WWE's "Monday Night RAW

You know, I actually intended to watch Raw for the first time in years yesterday but was too tired by the time I got home from work. Guess I missed a big one.

One could dream it was Paul Heyman, or even Bret Hart. But it won't be. It'll be Vince faking his death. Or Steve Austin. Or Triple H. Something stupid, no doubt.
