Heat. At least when they taped it (and everything’s changed since then), I think the idea was to eventually have Tomko and Snitsky beat Show and Kane for the titles sometime down the road (probably after Survivor Series.) It explains why they’re teaming as good as anything else, and the only thing that usually beats face giants are heel giants.
Velocity. After noticing they had archives of past episodes now, I went back and watched the first Burchill/Regal vs Kendrick/London match (which I missed while being in Vegas), which turned really creepy when I realized they were just going to wonder “Is Eddie Guerrero now a good guy?” for the whole match. At any rate, this week’s match is better.
I don’t know what they’d do for shows this week. I think we could use a weekend off.
