Eddy is supposed to be coming out to face Konnan. He tells production they better not go to commercial or he'll say his peace on some other show. He says this is the only way he can get Eric's attention. He cuts a heartfelt promo about giving WCW the best match on the card and not being treated with respect, talking about all the great talent that is being held down and a double standard with how main eventers are treated. He gets drowned out with an "Eddy sucks" chant, which he would have paused and soaked in if he was more experienced doing this kinda thing at this point. Sadly, he's locked into a contract, he wants to look out for Chavo and he has a wife and two children at home. But he says he's losing his dignity and wants out of his contract. He then throws a drink on himself, which is a little too inside, and says Eric can take this job and shove it. All of this never even got Eric's attention, nor did it move Eddy up the card. But it was an excellent promo.

Do I have your attention now Eric. This was a great promo with Eddy speaking from the heart but there didn't feel to be a lot of direction to it and Eddy never really grew from it. Still, for all of Eric's faults, he had no promo with people coming out and doing these inside promos as he was starting to lose grasp of the war overall.

Terrible, desperate, nonsensical segment that the crowd didn't understand--hell, I had a subscription to a mid-level sheet and read the Internet at the time and didn't know what the fuck this was about until after the fact. Eddie says the phrase "you-know-what" a lot, so you can tell this is really authentic. Eddie's been a scumbag heel for the past year and a half and evidently we're not supposed to think he's a whiner here. It's a Japan- or Memphis-style angle based on real feelings that *may* have been redeemed with proper follow-up but of course that isn't going to happen.
