Any WWF fans getting Survivor Series?

For the past couple months, the WWF has seemed to be on a downward spiral. Ratings are down and the shows are just less interesting. If any of you read RajahWWF or any other insider sites, you know that they are well aware of this and even Vince has said to expect to see major changes.
It's already begun. This past week's RAW and Smackdown! were some of the best shows I've seen in awhile. The intensity has been turned up and things are getting a lot more exciting.
Everything is pointing to Survivor Series and I'll be there!
The card is looking pretty good with the Dudleys vs. Hardys in the cage match and I'm especially looking forward to the finale.
I've got seats that face the main camera, so I am trying to figure out a "Dry-Erase" sign system
Got any ideas on what I should hold up?

You lucky dog. Sunday and Monday should be landmark days in the history of wrestling. It'll be interesting to see if the next week is a turning point for the WWF or just more of the same convoluted storylines, wasted potential, and McMahon-lovefests that have occured since the Invasion started. Either way, with the departure of Foley from the WWF and the rabid attempts to sign the Nature Boy, it should be interesting.
RAW IS FLAIR!!!

Cameron, you have echoed my sentiments exactly, except that my interest in the WWF has weaned so much, I didn't watch Smackdown or Raw this week. I read about the happenings on the net, but I'm not sorry that I missed it.
Yes, the WWF has been terrible the last few months. I've been bored to tears watching Raw and the few times I watched Smackdown.
I'm on the fence about the PPV, though. It could be very interesting, but nothing leads me to believe that it will be. The last PPV was just awful. I wish the WWF would get back to a good mix of interesting storylines and wrestling matches.
I wonder what Vince Russo is doing these days? When he was with the WWF, at least there were good storylines. Sure, he had some bad ideas, but nothing as bad as what we have seen the last few months.

I don't know if I would that Raw on Monday was really good. Missed Smackdown entirely, but I really hope SS makes a statement and they get back to the business of good entertainment.
Do you think the multi-brand wrestling is gonna be done for good and all talk of a WCW show is over after SS? I think it was a decent plan, but the lack of enough stars on WCW prevented it from working all that well. Defections aside, the ECW/WCW didn't offer the calibre of wrestlers to compete with the WWF stars, IMHO.

Russo is writing for some women's wrestling league in Australia, I did hear something about him writing for Women of Wresling as well
personally, I despise all-women wrestling. It's always just a T&A show without much talent skill or substance

In North America, women's wrestling sucks, but I've heard that in Japan it's suppose to be pretty good. Lots of technical stuff. Never seen it myself, but that's what I've heard.

You want Russo back????????
He almost killed TWO feds!!!!
Absolutely. I'll take him over the current writers any day of the week. When him and McMahon were collaborating, the WWF was always interesting. I loved the mix of storylines on Raw and Heat and the PPVs were left for pure technical wrestling.
And how did he almost kill two feds? Russo was writing when WWF was on the rise back in 1996-1997 and should be given credit for such. When he left the WWF, the WWF was enjoying unprecedented ratings and was dominating its then rival, the WCW. How he almost killed the WWF is beyond my capacity. He can only share the credit with McMahon and Ferrara for the creative contributions to the WWF. He can't be solely praised.
If you believe that he was the reason for the demise of WCW, you are SORELY mistaken. He was working with a bunch of primadonna wreslters who refused to go along with any storyline that put the other guy over. The likes of Hogan, Nash, Sting and others were so stubborn and selfish, Russo was never able to get any kind of momentum or any of his ideas fully fleshed out. Not to mention, he was handcuffed by Turner's Standards and Practices who vetoed most of his ideas (he even made fun of them using Lenny, Lodi and Stacy Keibler).
To say he almost killed two federations is ludicrous. It's not accurate in the least.

I agree with Tom completely. The demise of the WCW cannot in any way be put squarely on Vince Russo's shoulders. The ego's in the WCW dressing room were just ridiculous. I don't know how many more of the remaining WCW 'stars' will ever be accepted into the WWF.

Yes, Russo had Turner's Network Standards totally destroy his ideas. The Egos backstage (many of whom Vince gave birth to mind you) were the main destructive factor for WCW
Let's face it, many of WCW's biggest stars are worse wrestlers than _I_ am. Hogan punch/kick/Superman/Legdrop pin yay! Goldberg SPEAR SPEAR SPEAR! And let's not forget Loser(Booker) who just sucks no matter what you do
I predict that Vince is going to lay off most of the WCW people soon after the angle has ended. They suck, he knows it. I'm hoping he'll pick up the REAL cream, Kid Kash, The FBI etc. There's a kid named Red in CZW that I think with some development will be amazing. He's already raided WCW's cream before they died, now he has his choice of the best of the best to recreate it

You know, I'd much rather have seen a WRESTLING MATCH as the main event instead of a twenty minute dueling sing-a-long, but what can you do.
Does anybody remember the WWF before Wrestlemania this year? The build-up for the Rock-Austin match was absolutely perfect. Storylines were good, ratings were high. Then, Austin turned. HHH got injured. Rocky went off to Hollywood. Benoit got injured. Things really fell apart. Hard to believe that this year started off so promisingly, and turned into a such a pile of crap. I don't think anyone will disagree that this Sunday and Monday really need to shake things up. It'll be interesting to see.

WARNING: I get really star struck when I see professional wrestlers in person. I dont know what it is, maybe it that I've been watching WWF since I was a wee lad.
Anyway, I work for a rental car agency here at the local airport. Today, while I was just sitting around, Kurt Angle walked past my booth to use the bathroom! He looked a little pissed. Later I heard a rumor from the guys in baggage claim that they lost one of his bags. Not sure if that was true.
Later, the BIG Show walked by. Everybody working at the airport noticed him. When a couple people were bothering him for his autograph in front of me, I got a chance wish him a good show on Sunday. He smiled and waved with that choke-slammin' hand of his.
Even later, I saw Hugh Morris (he was hard to recgognize), Lillian Garcia, Ivory, and other WWF employees. Very cool. Can't wait till Sunday

I like Lillian. Does she look as good in person as she does on TV? Was she showing any leg?

Man, you're lucky. The only WWF personality I've got to meet in person was Bob Backlund.

The only wrestling people I have ever seen up close are Prime Time Elix Skipper, Doug Dillenger (the guy who knocked on the door before Goldberg came out), Mark Jindrak and Shaun O'Haire. I was at a WCW show, and they were in the parking lot on the other side of the fence (only 3-4ft away from me).
Jindrak and O'Haire were the only ones who didn't give me an autograph. Completely ignored me too. I left to get Skipper's autograph, when I looked over to see Jindrak and O'Haire giving autographs to some well "built" females
