Backlash ends, Raw begins, just your usual week after a pay-per-view.
As always, welcome to this edition of Sheerah's Sharpshooter! Backlash has just ended, and so has Raw, so now it's the usual time where you hear from me! However, I do have a bit of bad news. My isn't quite as long as usual for this edition, due to circumstances out of my control. So things will be a little bit different, but don't worry, because Sheerah's Sharpshooter will be back to it's regular format for the next edition! So, right now, I'm going to start off with Trivia! Guess what! We have a winner! This week's winner is…
Congratulations to the winner! The correct answer was Arrogance. Now, on to this week's trivia! Last week's was a tad bit harder, so this week I'll give an easier ('easier' as in I've used it before, so it may be familiar to you)
Who invented the Jackhammer?
5)None of the above

First, I want to start out with the SSYW Awards results. This will be the FINAL and LAST time I will be posting them, so if you're interested in the results, this is your last chance! Keep in mind, these are the people that YOU voted for. The first award coming up is Best Wrestler, and the winner is the only, the only, the GAME, TRIPLE H! Next award goes the Best Light Weight wrestler, and that lucky wrestler is Jeff Hardy! Next, the Best Champion of the year '00, Triple H comes out on top once again and wins in this category as well. Now it's time for the Best Tag Team award, which was won by those guys that sooo totally reek of awesomeness, Edge and Christian! The Award for the Best Mic Worker goes to none other than… THE ROCK! The award for Best Heel is a rather interesting one, because once again, Triple H comes out on top in another category and wins by a landslide. Now for Best Face, which is yet another interesting category, because the person who won was only face for a few months, that right, Triple H once again takes away another award. Whats this? Here's an award that Hunter Hearst Helmsley didn't win, it is Favorite Federation, which goes to the World Wrestling Federation. Those are all the awards, and I find it amazing that THE GAME, Triple H, won a total of four awards. And here I thought I was the only person on the planet that actually liked the guy. To be quite honest, I wasn't exactly sure why the majority of people put him for Best Face since he was only a face for a few weeks, but hey, if that's who you want, that's who you got!
You know, I like Kurt Angle, I always have. But there really are some things that need to change about him. He's a great heel, there's no doubt about that. However, his gimmick is getting a bit boring. I don't think he needs a total gimmick change, but maybe just a little twist to it. The scary part is, in the Benoit vs. Angle feud, Benoit it my favorite pick of the two. I do like the feud though, it is a pretty good one. I especially like the "stealing the gold medals" thing that happened on Raw. It should make the feud heat up, and make things a lot more interesting. I know that probably none of you will agree with me on this, but I don't think Angle should be a submission wrestler. Mainly the only thing he's been working on is his submission techniques, which is all fine and dandy, but I just think he should be more all-round instead of solely relying on his submissions, the occasional suplex, and Olympic Slam.
Alright, I just saw something on Raw that I'm incredibly unhappy with. I'm referring to the segment where Edge went up against Matt Hardy. The ending was quite sad, when Jeff threw Christian into the referee as he was counting to three, and then Matt pushed Edge into Christian and he went flying out of the ring. The thing that's worries me is that it is classic WWF "Breaking up the tag-team" angle. After a bunch of miscommunications, the turn against each other and have a long-running feud. Since they lost the tag team titles, it's probable that the WWF is going that route. As you've probably guessed, I will be extremely unhappy if they do that. Edge and Christian make one of the best tag-teams I've ever seen. I'm close to just making the blunt statement that they are the best current tag team. There is absolutely not point in breaking them up. Of course, I'm just speculating. I'm basing all of this from one happening on Raw, this may not happy.
Alright, I've come to the conclusion that Shane McMahon is the greatest dare-devil in all of wrestling history. I used to think that that title belonged to Mick Foley, but I don't think that even he would jump from the title of a Titan Tron just to give an elbow drop to his opponent. Goodness, I thought Shane was crazy when he leaped off of the top of the cage in the steal cage match a while back. Then there was that fall he took a few pay-per-views again when he was facing Steve Blackman, and he took a pretty bad fall. As I've always said, Shane is not only a great talent behind the scenes, but he's also incredible when he gets in the ring. It's such a pity that he only occasionally wrestles. Now that he has WCW, he'll probably wrestle even less than he does now.
Some interesting things happened on Backlash, and Vince McMahon and Stephanie seemed to take care of most of the good ones during their interview. It's simply amazing, Triple H and Stone Cold have so many titles. They are lacking a few, like the European, Hardcore, Lightweight, and Womans, but it's no small feet to hold the titles that they currently have. One thing happened at the pay-per-view which was simply horrid, and Kane should be punished for it! How dare he give Stephanie such a bruise on her face! Even thought Linda had to stick her nose where it doesn't belong, and got Kane out of his punishment, I'm sure he'll get his comeuppance. Another thing was when Test helped Shane McMahon in his match. Shane is one of my faves, as you well know, but Test deserves to be punished for his deeds as well. Although, even if he didn't do anything I probably would have come up with some lame reason for him to get beaten up just because of the fact that I don't like him. But he definitely got what was coming to him. Who'da'thunk you'd see Triple H powerbomb him through an announcing table!
Hate to say it, but it looks like now my column must come to an end. First off, I just want to say I'm very unhappy with the WWF Women's division. I honestly don't think that Chyna should be in it since she's officially been a member of the men's division for a few years now. Personally, I think they should push people like Ivory, Tori, and Lita more. Of course, they do seem to be in the process of pushing a Lita/Chyna feud, which should add a bit of spark to the women's division. Also, before I go, one last thing! The Quote of the Bi-month! I normally would have mentioned it earlier, but with all of the hectic stuff going on in my household today I almost forgot. To be quite honest, this was yet another week that I wasn't sure what to put. But the Undertaker said something that sparked my interest, so I'll go with that! "Tonight Stone Cold is going to meet Big Daddy Deadman" - Undertaker during his interview, don't ask me why, but the phrase "Big Daddy Deadman" just makes me crack up! Now, on to my Closing Remarks!
~Sorry, I still hate X-factor.
~I'm not sure if the wrestlers upper-bodies are getting bigger, or if they're just wearing tighter shirts.
~I really, really hate Linda McMahon's theme song.
