I liked it too & I pretty much hate everything. Although admittedly I missed the first forty minutes of the show due to terrible traffic & getting home late.

Actually, that's kind of my whole problem with the whole company. It's not a wrestling company, it's one big long marketing campaign. It's not about the matches, it's about the camera angles & the shilling of shit to seem relevant. Make sure you get the Wrestlemania logo in this shot, make sure you mention Twitter in this segment, get a view of the new merchandise here, a plant doing this there, a Titantron showing that there. Nothing about the show feels organic at all. It's one big ad, one big product placement.

I kinda just wanna see guys fuckin' wrestle.
I think that's the problem with almost everything right now... they forget it just isn't about the money, but about the art behind it as well. So many gaming and movie franchises have betrayed what they were for the quick buck just like many wrestling companies forget that they have to put out a good wrestling product first and then worry about the merchandise and promoting of the product.

It's been a really sad year all around though.. so my cynicism might be clouding my judgement by watching several franchises kill themselves by selling themselves out artistically.

And yes, wrestling is actually an art form in many respects. And right now, the WWE is betraying the most basic of tenets of that art form in how they book and promote and shill the most inane of shit.

The AJ/Vickie/Dolph/John fuckery was amusing. The Punk heart attack segment was terrible. The 8 man tag was excellent. Brad Maddox got squashed, but he sure was pretty. Some dudes wrestled while Antonio Cesaro talked, and that was good. CM Punk and John Cena are magic when they wrestle, so obvs. that was fun. And Ryback showed up, and nobody had the heart to tell him his presence was neither desired nor required.

Tonight's RAW fucking sucked.

The booking was just plain horrible. I mean... people were anticipating the Brad Maddoxx match with Ryback all week... and all those idiots at WWE creative could come up with was another squash match. Maddoxx didn't even hit him once. He was basically a punching bag the entire match...like we're supposed to believe that's how someone would act whose wanted to get to the WWE their whole life. In short, I was expecting alot more out of the match, some sort of surprise ending, some interference.... SOMETHING. Why the fuck would they show Heyman talking to Maddoxx before the commercial if nothing came out of it? Completely disappointed.

Not even gonna mention the shit they pulled with Jerry's return. For fuck's sake, have some goddamn respect for the man. Not funny at all.

So, why do you mark for Ryback? I am not being rude at all - I am just curious as to what inspires your fandom.

Went to the show tonight..Did they air the part where Ryback & Cena are fighting over the title with Punk on the apron and they both let go of the title and it hits Punk in the face? Funny


Will say ppl weren't fond of the King vid where they showed him being worked on..Wasn't that when he was clinically dead? Also, when Heyman faked that heart attack, everyone went silent..Not the "someone check on him we are concerned" silent, but the "I can't believe they just went there"..Even while Punk was jokingly working on Heyman ppl were just silent and watching.. Unbelievable stuff

Was disappointed there was no dark match afterwards...I mean even up to today on the site, they still had the dark match listed as Ryback vs Punk for the title

1. He has the look
2. He is intimidating
3. He doesn't screw around. Gets in the ring and kicks ass, instead of spending 30 min talking.
4. Doesn't suck up to the fans like every other face does.
5. Does squash matches like a BOSS

Plus, I see a lot of potential in him.
