I annoyed the BM FB by posting the HEAVYWEIGH image but it goes without saying this video contains spoilers.

    As funny as it was… in WWE’s defense, I’m pretty sure they wanted those segments to be silent.

  • Codster9

    Those silent backstage segments could have used some WWF No Mercy Cutscene music playing during them.

    You probably could have had that Jericho picture pop up at least a dozen times over the last month. They did their damnedest to ignore the first unification.

    • Stephen

      I think – and keep in mind this is my best attempt at interpreting their insane logic – that they think that doesn’t count because it was unifying the WCW title with the WWF one.

      Yes, I know that they’d re-named the WCW title the World title already by that point.

      Yes, I know that the World Heavyweight title lineage they recognise these days includes all the WCW-era (Booker T, etc.) champions, rather than terminating in 1991 or following the NWA title or whatever, so saying the current World title and that World title are two separate belts is hard to make sense.

      But I think that’s how they’re trying to justify it: Jericho’s was tainted by the stain of WCW’s lineage, but this one isn’t… except it is.

      (Well, that and HHH seems to be enjoying bashing Jericho for no reason these days. That, or he’s getting ready for his annual Rumble-time return and Orton might need a stopgap opponent….)

  • The Marvin

    You forgot the part where Michael Cole screamed “Randy Orton is going to get the titles!!” as John Cena was scaling the ladder, and Orton was sprawled out on the mat. Vintage Cole!

    • Stephen

      That one I file away with how JR couldn’t tell Edge and Christian apart for about two years. I think he got Matt and Jeff mixed up a few times; if it wasn’t for the obvious reason, he’d probably have mixed up D-Von and Bubba a lot, too.

      (Seriously, that should be a special episode)

      • The Marvin

        But none of those were the two top guys competing for the top title in the main event. I’ll file this under “Michael Cole is really really really bad at his job”

        • Guest

          I’ll file this comment as another smark overexaggerate’s Cole being bad at his job,

  • Fernando Silva

    Best marriage ever! Botchamania and Castlevania!

    • Moe Ramsey

      FF3 and CV3 is awesome. The music is always really good for these vids.

  • Rocksault

    Anyone else notice how much Dean Ambrose looks like that sadistic prison guard from 1999’s The Green Mile?
    You know, The Green Mile, that movie where the sadistic guard who looks like Dean Ambrose pulls the lever on the electric chair down… and it happens to make a very familiar noise…

    • davidbonzaisaldanamontgomery

      Personally, he looks like Stephen Dorff in “Alone in the Dark”.

  • Fat Pat

    Thanks Maffew!

    What’s NAE? You have good ears. The Shield segment was a botch because they went into commercial at the wrong time
