The SmarK Rant for WWE No Mercy 2005 – 10.09.05Originally written 12.12.2017. I’m gonna start adding dates from now on, as suggested by readers. OK, let’s finish off 2005, unless there’s any OTHER shows from that year I’m missing. The video package for this one is a bit creepy, with Eddie talking about his addictions and Batista threatening to end him, and then it cuts to the graveyard to show Undertaker’s casket. Yikes. Live from Houston, TX, drawing 7000 people and 219,000 buys on PPV.
With the recent news that Disney is on the verge of acquiring Fox’s TV and movie properties, we’re about to see some big crossovers — Avengers vs. X-Men! Bart Simpson vs. Mickey Mouse! However, when talking about corporate synergy fueled by greed, one can never forget the time that WCW was invaded by the KISS Demon in 2000.
I was ready to bid farewell to 2005 with this show, and then some guy on the comments was all “You didn’t do No Mercy 2005 yet either.” ALWAYS GOTTA BE THAT GUY, HUH? We’ll have to do a running count of people who I don’t remember in this show. #1: Jillian Hall, JBL’s big boobed secretary or whatever she is. JBL buries Matt and his “little internet geek friends” for whining about losing his job and his girlfriend, whereas he is a real man and the main event.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
