And to the delusional folks, I mean what a great start to a babyface turn. Tapping clean like a bitch. Truly a sign for great things to come. A year ago he was constantly losing as an onover midcarder. Now, he's an over midcarder constantly losing. Guess he's just a more valuable enhancement talent to put over the people that the company actually likes instead of begrudgingly giving TV time to. It's far more likely that he's just a tweener so he can job to both faces and heels as shown by this. More flexibility to job to a bigger portion of the roster. Heel Santino style gimmick with Kofi Kingston booking. What an enhancement talent. 31 year old Christian.

I do have one question for anyone who might feel that Dwayne Johnson "owes" the business. Is it just him, or is it anyone who moved on to other things? Should Luna Vachon get heat for running a towing company instead of working on RAW? Should Maven be critiqued on his Home Shopping Network bits instead of wrestling?

Or is it only the ones who go on to highly visible careers in movies that owe something? Why do Johnson (who left after putting people over, doing the traditionally "right thing") and Lesnar (who did not; except for making Eddie a legitimate star) get called sell-outs who "forgot where they came from" when someone who retires to do some regular job get credit (as they should) for moving on and making it without falling into a sea of addiction?
