Yeah, it bothers me how guys with real talent like Rey Mysterio always wrestled midcard while Nash and Goldberg were at the top of the card in WCW.

He was a great athlete but a terrible in-ring performer. I felt like he couldn't put together a match for his life. He also never put anyone over. I think Ryback was being completely truthful and hoenst in his comments towards Goldberg when he said that Goldberg only wrestled for a paycheck - you knew that he didn't really give a shit about the company and only went in there to get his paycheck and leave.

He was suspended for sixty days after his second violation of the wellness policy, one more and he'll be fired. Also, he has become pretty stale as a face, a heel turn might help him out.

I didn't think they ever made him lose. It seems like he can't stop winning.

He was always stale to me. I never saw anything special or unique in him.

let's all go absolutely crazy when he hits an RKO in midair for the 266th time everybody and act like it never happened before

My predictions for the TLC ppv

Team Hell No & Ryback vs. The Shield (Tables, Ladders & Chairs Match)
Team Hell no and Ryback because all want a piece of the Shield clowns

John Cena vs. Dolph Ziggler (Ladder Match for the World Heavyweight Championship Money in the Bank contract)
I think Dolph Ziggler will Cash in his MITB before this match starts therefore canceling it

World Heavyweight Champion Big Show vs. Sheamus (Chairs Match)
With the above being said I think this match will turn into a triple threat or fatal 4 way for the title with either Cena and/or Ziggler joining in

Intercontinental Champion Kofi Kingston vs. Wade Barrett
Kofi for his quickness and that Trouble in Paradise is an evil move

U.S. Champion Antonio Cesaro vs. R-Truth
Antonio cause Truth will be too worried about dancing and trying to find Little Jimmy

Rey Mysterio & Sin Cara vs. Team Rhodes Scholars
Mysterio/Cara. If they can get their quickness and agility into play Rhodes Scholars wont have a chance.

"SantaâEUTMs Helper" No. 1 ContenderâEUTMs Diva Battle Royal
Not sure Who all is in this but by what I can see either Layla or Tamina cause they are the only ones with any skill what so ever.

Saw this McDonald's advert and the first thing I'm wonder is why they were allowed to use Yoshi Tasu's theme to promote something non-WWE related.

And so he finally did. I'm liking this whole AJ girlfriend with a big intimidating bodyguard (Langston) group. It's making me hate heels, which is what makes me root for the babyfaces, which is what makes a good product.

Shield is great, champions are great.

Keep it up WWE. Hope for a great 2013.

It's deader than it should be, that's for sure.

A few quick comments:

First off, on top of not expecting to ever see Boogeyman again, I wasn't expecting to see Dreamer ever step foot in there again. But there he was, and 'HE'S STILL GOT IT! CLAP CLAP CLAP-CLAP-CLAP'.

Uh, did they turn Del Rio face w/o any explanation? Or was it explained during TLC? I know he'd been a face prior to the WWE, but it'll still take some getting used to. Given how Ricardo got mauled by The Shield, I can only assume he'll join the fight out of revenge.

Oh lordy.....now R-Truth's part of Hell No? It only gets loonier & loonier.....and I'm lovin' it.

By the way, regarding The Shield, I know some of ya have been wondering why that name was chosen; ain't it obvious? I'm willing to bet it was Punk's idea; we all know he's a comic book nerd, and that he loves to weave references into whatever plot he's currently in, so this has got to be the case.

On the members themselves, damn, they've really been given the ball, here! And doing a fantastic job! Now, if they don't get 'Nexus-ed' suddenly, this is going to be very enjoyable. I have to wonder if they were created as an answer to TNA's Aces & Eights and/or, to a lesser extent, ROH's Scum?

Glad to see Cody back, just because that injury could've been far worse than it was. I mean, that was one fucked up landing he had; he could've broken his neck that way.

I was worried at first that Ryback's noted tendency to go overboard caused Punk's injury, but he's apparently been working on a bum knee for a lot longer than I realized, so obviously it was gonna catch up with him sooner or later. It goes a long way to show the audience how seriously he takes his profession. All that being said, however, the fact that they had him keep the title when pretty much EVERYBODY ELSE had to drop the title in such situations - including HIMSELF on a previous occasion, if I'm not mistaken - is more than a little out-of-place.

Very interesting how the AJ/Dolph/Cena thing has gone; rather glad Dolph is finally with someone other than Vickie. I like how they tied the earlier thing w/ the bows into it by having her be the one who actually made em.

As for Langston, yeah, he's huge, but he's currently displaying all the charisma of a paperweight, so that's gonna hurt his chances of getting very far.

TttT was fun as always, although Miz' segment w/ a certain Muppet duo was stretching it a tad. Granted, it was merely a segue for Sandow to step in & say 'THIS IS IDIOTIC!', but yeah. Still, anyone speaking ill of The Muppets should burn in hell for blasphemy. Just sayin'. :P The bit w/ Bryan & Animal (Muppet, not Road Warrior) was hilarious, esp. when the goat Muppet walked in & went "Cousin Daniel?"........lololololol.






Impact:

It's still gonna take some getting used to calling Luke 'DoC',but I love what they've done with him; he's gotten to do far more in a couple of months than WWE let him do in a couple of YEARS. That's reeeeeally saying somethin'.

Like I figured after seeing the clips from his Crowning Moment of Awesome at the PPV, it appears that the direction they're going w/ Joseph Park is 'he slowly realizes he is the brother he was looking for'.........the question is, how will they explain it? Brainwashing in an attempt to make him normal, perhaps?

The matches with Christian Yorke have basically told me TNA realized they fucked up letting him go all those years ago, and now they're trying to make up for lost time; they wouldn't stick him in a match with their champ ON THE FIRST NIGHT BACK IN if that wasn't the case. When he pulled the Twist of Fate on Jeff, I was immediately sold on the guy. If they're gonna do anything big with him, though, they'd best not wait too long - he's only got a few good years left on him; luckily, they seem to be quite aware of that.

Looks like we're probably gonna end up with Bully/Hogan eventually, but it's actually hard to entirely tell how anything will play out with these storylines.............which is what I like about it.


ROH was just a 'Best Of' show this time, so not much to say. Although last week, Mike Mondo addressed the crowd, mentioning whatever his old gimmick was (either WWE or TNA; never specified) and how much it sucked; I can't remember anyone of his size in a green jumpsuit, though.....so who the hell was he? It's been bugging me all week!

It was a nice surprise that's for sure. I also liked that they then used that to give The Shield more heat.

Uh, did they turn Del Rio face w/o any explanation?

Then apparently turned him heel again last night....

Or was it explained during TLC?

Nope, he just came out and took exception to 3MB.

I know he'd been a face prior to the WWE, but it'll still take some getting used to. Given how Ricardo got mauled by The Shield, I can only assume he'll join the fight out of revenge.

The problem is his character isn't really built to be a face. When has there ever been a "rich guy" babyface in wrestling? It's a predominantly blue collar audience, someone who flaunts wealth is not predisposed to get over with that audience.

By the way, regarding The Shield, I know some of ya have been wondering why that name was chosen; ain't it obvious? I'm willing to bet it was Punk's idea; we all know he's a comic book nerd, and that he loves to weave references into whatever plot he's currently in, so this has got to be the case.

I haven't heard of this being Punk's idea.

It's very possible. They certainly have been paying attention to TNA of late, and in general this seems to be a good sign that they are finally understanding the need to get new talent over post haste.

I was worried at first that Ryback's noted tendency to go overboard caused Punk's injury, but he's apparently been working on a bum knee for a lot longer than I realized, so obviously it was gonna catch up with him sooner or later. It goes a long way to show the audience how seriously he takes his profession. All that being said, however, the fact that they had him keep the title when pretty much EVERYBODY ELSE had to drop the title in such situations - including HIMSELF on a previous occasion, if I'm not mistaken - is more than a little out-of-place.

Who would fight the Rock at the Rumble who would do as good a job? Answer is no one, so it absolutely should stay put.

Very interesting how the AJ/Dolph/Cena thing has gone; rather glad Dolph is finally with someone other than Vickie. I like how they tied the earlier thing w/ the bows into it by having her be the one who actually made em.

He needed to be away from Vickie awhile ago, Vickie should be sort of a gateway for young heels on their way up and developing. Dolph hasn't needed the association with her for at least a year now. Really enjoying the Edge/Lita vibe this early AJ/Ziggler stuff is giving off. If you're going to copy, copy things that worked.

As for Langston, yeah, he's huge, but he's currently displaying all the charisma of a paperweight, so that's gonna hurt his chances of getting very far.

They need to stop bringing guys up purely based on look.

Well that would certainly turn this company around. However I don't see why the Hardys would come back to this company given how bad it's become, and the WWE fired Jeff for doping about 100 times now. This doesn't really sound realistic.

And Jeff Hardy already signed a contract with TNA. Matt Hardy didn't though so only he might come.
Still bullshit that CM Punk got rid of him. If CM Punk didn't attack Jeff when he was doing his entrance,
Jeff would have totally won.

Jeff is TNA Heavyweight Champion, safe to say he's not coming back for a while still, if he even has future plans to.

And that's all scripted, who cares. It was a brilliant way to draw more heel heat on the WHC who supposed to be a full-blown heel at that time.

Yet another A's & 8's mask went off last night.

Last time I'd seen Mike Knox, Kane was still without a mask. That's a long fucking time. This whole A's & 8's lineup, barring Devon (and possibly Styles, as I have a sneaking suspicion that he'll join em soon), is looking to be entirely made up of former WWE employes that were misused & discarded.....y'know, right up TNA's alley. Anderson included; yes, I know he had failed a Wellness test during a big push, but the ACTUAL reason he got canned - a mere move botch, which is stupid when members of the CURRENT WWE roster are guilty of such - still pisses me off.

Y'know.......speaking of Jeff, I actually have to give him credit; it seems like he's finally got his shit together. I guess having a wife & daughter to worry about will put shit into perspective. I can only imagine that a certain member we haven't seen in a while must be giddy about that. :P

Then apparently turned him heel again last night....

........And back again this week.

I know he'd been a face prior to the WWE, but it'll still take some getting used to. Given how Ricardo got mauled by The Shield, I can only assume he'll join the fight out of revenge.
The problem is his character isn't really built to be a face. When has there ever been a "rich guy" babyface in wrestling? It's a predominantly blue collar audience, someone who flaunts wealth is not predisposed to get over with that audience.

They currently seem to be using his friendship w/ Ricardo to turn him........tweener? But yeah, it's really hard, esp. now, to turn that kind of a character face.

By the way, regarding The Shield, I know some of ya have been wondering why that name was chosen; ain't it obvious? I'm willing to bet it was Punk's idea; we all know he's a comic book nerd, and that he loves to weave references into whatever plot he's currently in, so this has got to be the case.
I haven't heard of this being Punk's idea.

Well, it was a shot in the dark, considering "The Shield of justice" gives off obvious S.H.I.E.L.D./Cpt. America vibes, which is right up Punk's alley, so I figured he at least came up w/ the name.

On the members themselves, damn, they've really been given the ball, here! And doing a fantastic job! Now, if they don't get 'Nexus-ed' suddenly, this is going to be very enjoyable. I have to wonder if they were created as an answer to TNA's Aces & Eights and/or, to a lesser extent, ROH's Scum?
It's very possible. They certainly have been paying attention to TNA of late, and in general this seems to be a good sign that they are finally understanding the need to get new talent over post haste.

Which is something they absolutely need to do; TNA: The Russo-Free Version has been the best it's ever been, and ROH is finally getting some recognition now that more people can watch it, so they really need to step up their game.

However, between the "Santa Got Run Over By Del Rio" bit last week, and the stupid-as-fuck Mae Young segment this week, it's apparent that Vince still isn't taking this seriously enough.

I was worried at first that Ryback's noted tendency to go overboard caused Punk's injury, but he's apparently been working on a bum knee for a lot longer than I realized, so obviously it was gonna catch up with him sooner or later. It goes a long way to show the audience how seriously he takes his profession. All that being said, however, the fact that they had him keep the title when pretty much EVERYBODY ELSE had to drop the title in such situations - including HIMSELF on a previous occasion, if I'm not mistaken - is more than a little out-of-place.
Who would fight the Rock at the Rumble who would do as good a job? Answer is no one, so it absolutely should stay put.

Well, yeah, I understand that; but it still seems jarring when most wrestlers drop their titles immediately in similar situations - which, given Punk's a heel, you'd expect Vince to 'strip' him of it immediately.........although I suppose they can always say Rock talked Vince into letting him keep it just so he can exact his revenge by taking it from him himself.

Very interesting how the AJ/Dolph/Cena thing has gone; rather glad Dolph is finally with someone other than Vickie. I like how they tied the earlier thing w/ the bows into it by having her be the one who actually made em.
He needed to be away from Vickie awhile ago, Vickie should be sort of a gateway for young heels on their way up and developing. Dolph hasn't needed the association with her for at least a year now. Really enjoying the Edge/Lita vibe this early AJ/Ziggler stuff is giving off. If you're going to copy, copy things that worked.

Indeed.

As for Langston, yeah, he's huge, but he's currently displaying all the charisma of a paperweight, so that's gonna hurt his chances of getting very far.
They need to stop bringing guys up purely based on look.

Even though WWE has had plenty of success with several big guys before (and now, obviously), it's their personality that makes em stars at the end of the day; they still seem to keep focusing on the wrong thing, sadly. Ryback is where he is right now because his personality (and catchphrase) got over with the crowd quickly; his size is just a mere bonus.

Was surprised to see him as well. I've always made jokes about him, because he's been so long gone, and when he got unmasked (I was surprised the TNA commentator actually announced he was from WWE) I was like HOLY SHITTTT THERE HE ISSSSS

And yeah WWE doesn't do shit with talent. Vince doesn't care about good wrestling and potential.

Y'know.......speaking of Jeff, I actually have to give him credit; it seems like he's finally got his shit together. I guess having a wife & daughter to worry about will put shit into perspective. I can only imagine that a certain member we haven't seen in a while must be giddy about that. :P

Yeah Jeff's cleaned up a lot. It's Matt who's been at rock bottom for some time.

TNA is looking a lot better than WWE. Especially RAW. RAW was terrible in 2012
