EDIT: & Sam I agree about the MARKING OUT part as things are looking good from the company at all angles; Dolph-Del Rio looks better than ever, Cena-Henry are poised for an epic feud, SHIELD, Bryan, not forgetting the obvious CM FUCKING PUNK VS BROCK FUCKING LESNAR MATCH.
Yer I can't remember in quite sometime, that I was invested in so many different aspects of the WWE, like the double turn from last night which should start up a nice face run for Dolph. Cena/Henry set for an awesome feud, Punk/Lesnar coming on the horizon. Bryan and the Shield killing it every week. Lots of new stars such as the Wyatt Family ready to hit the main roster. Yer mate surely WWE can't ruin this. Just keep the McMahon drama to a minimum please
Dolph/Del Rio such a great character driven performance last night for both men a personal favourite of mine for this year ****. I don't know if anyone noticed the slightly botched rocker dropper, which I thought was accidentally perfectly executed playing up the concussion angle, in which a botched move comes across ok seeing as how much physical and mental damage he has taken.. Sort of in the way HBK landed on Takers knee at WM 26.

I thought the rocker dropper looking a tad off was more fault of Del Rio than anything and in a fashion to where it was hectic by that point for Dolph to get ANY offense that it all worked out well despite it not looking "pretty". Only added in with the rest. But jesus, the part where Dolph shoos away the trainer to continue the match only to be blasted in the back of the head with a dropkick by Del Rio is too much. Phenomenal moment. The part of the match where it was like "oh shoot. this guy is an asshole. What in the heck am I seeing?" Great stuff.
I don't now if I'm a heartless bastard or not, but I loved Dolph being kicked in the head for nearly 10 minutes, I had several texts from mates saying they found it disturbing. Where as I could t help but
Absolutely agree one of the best promos Del Rio has done too date.
^ This is as well, JBL really helped sell the moment like you said.
I dug it from the standpoint of being blown away by what I was seeing. Match did a number on me as I walked into Payback thinking it would be another run of the mill match between the two, Dolph would win, & that was that. Instead we got what he saw: a double turn with a desperately reckless turn of events. It's a tense angle and that's why I like it.
I remember two years ago when Henry was going to face Orton and NOC for the WHC. No one thought Mizark was going to win because they thought he was just going to be a monster heel for the top babyface to slay. And we were proven wrong.
I think Henry might just win at MITB.
