Ok, I see, I thought you wanted him gone and I tend to jump to the defence of those I think are being 'picked on'
It's a trait Ryback and I share

I agree but classic storytelling and moves in a match on tv are not so important these days, matches seem to be a few moves, a bit of sell and then setting up later 'dramas'.
The fact that ADR beat down Orton after the show went off air and then it was only viewable on WWE website and discussed on Twitter etc says a lot about the direction the WWE is taking.

Yep, a "near-death or possible fatalistic experience" for 'wrestling'
Love them or hate them CM Punk and DB are 2 of the best 'wrestlers' around at the moment and they spend much more time 'entertaining' than they do 'wrestling'

....During the match The Kangaroos' cheating tactics aggravated the crowd so much that the fans threw chairs at the team. The Kangaroos attempted to hide under the ring to escape the flying chairs, but rabid fans tried to light the ring apron on fire to "smoke out" The Kangaroos....
