Re: General Pro Wrestling News and Discussion Thread Part Deux!

CM Punk is definitely Wrestler of the Year, and John Cena ought to get Heat of the Year, but through no real fault of his own. Cena is a talented guy, but the old saying goes that absence makes the heart grow fonder.... and Cena still hasn't been absent from the WWE title picture long enough for him to draw anything but heat from the majority.

TLC was fantastic and then we got the single worst episode of Raw I can remember. Infuriating.

I have to admit to laughing my ass off when Del Rio hit Santa and the crowd started chanting, "You killed Santa!". Cena cheerleading the locker room against Del Rio and the subsequent comedy match was pure, unadulterated monkey shit, though.

I don't know what happened in between because I couldn't be bothered to pay attention to the rest of the show knowing the faces would always win since it's a heartwarming Christmas episode.

Re: General Pro Wrestling News and Discussion Thread Part Deux!

the episode between (or in this case on christmas eve) has always been one of the worst shows of the year. if memory is correct, they used to take this week off of tv and just have a raw retrospective of the whole year. only a few years ago did they start showing a first run show.

Re: General Pro Wrestling News and Discussion Thread Part Deux!

Wow. Three weeks since the last post in this thread, maybe I'm not the only one who has lost interest now? That being said, I did watch most of Raw last week and wasn't impressed by it. Punk's pipebomb promo that brought out the Rock at the end was pretty amazing, Rock needs to lay off the jokes though, because they kind of don't work against Punk. Maybe they did with Cena and their promos, but Punk is on an entirely different level than Cena and is almost always on his "A" Game on the mic. That was also a horrid Rock Bottom he hit on Punk, and yes I realized that Rock is again rusty, but still it was bad.

Alberto Del Rio captured the World Heavyweight Championship on Smackdown, something that I thought should have happened several months ago. It will be interesting to see where this push goes for Del Rio or if he ends up blowing it again.

I wonder again when we might see the new WWE Championship Title, or if WWE has decided to put off introducing it now. They're running out of milestone moments to introduce it now.

Don't really think the 20th Anniversary Edition of Raw tomorrow will be any different than anything else we've seen lately, except for appearances by various people. Both the Undertaker and Brock are rumoured to return pretty soon as well.

Anyone care about the Bully Ray/Brooke Hogan storyline? Looks like they're rehashing old Vince/Steph/Triple H story lines there.

Re: General Pro Wrestling News and Discussion Thread Part Deux!

Speaking of pure shit, that's how I'd describe Cena literally dumping shit on Ziggler and AJ. He broke kayfabe and was talking about Ziggler's pushes and was harping on about hustle, loyalty and respect only to end with that which makes no sense whatsoever...typical WWE nowadays.

The Rock's appearances on Raw and Smackdown this week were pretty entertaining (both Punk and Sandow/Rhodes played off him well). Del Rio vs. Big Show on Smackdown was surprisingly great with both men putting on an awesome match and the hot crowd eating up Del Rio's win. Like I've mentioned in the past I actually like Del Rio and his ringwork but I think his heel persona is tired so I hope this face turn works.

Aside from those things, I don't recall a single thing from the past few weeks. Oh, honorable mention goes to AJ's wardrobe malfunction on Smackdown with her top rolling up (to reveal her bra-covered assets). : *drool*

So when The Rock cuts a promo using the "I Have a Dream" speech, has it become a little too ingrained in popular culture and lost some of its original impact?

Well as the Rumble is always my favorite PPV of the year I tuned in and was 50/50 on the event. Loved everything but the final match. Horrible ending. The rumble match itself was pretty cool with some nice spots and good to see Goldust make an appearance to battle Cody. Only thing better would have been the American Dream himself walking down the aisle.. The ending of Bigshow/Del Rio was while not original something I havent seen in a while so pretty good. The tag match was meh.

Re: General Pro Wrestling News and Discussion Thread Part Deux!

could they make it any more obvious how last nights raw was going to end? once they pushed the mcmahon heyman angle to the end of the show, everyone and their mother should have known that brock was returning, would injury vince and in the next few weeks HHH returns to once again defend the family honor (rehash of orton/steph/hhh from a few years ago).

HHH and Brock being surprise rumble entrants would have been a better way to do this. going to assume there is only going to be one elimination chamber match at the ppv as well now that punk/rock 2 is on. although i guess shield v cena, shamus, ryback could be done in EC.

who are the other 4 in the world title EC match (assuming del rio, show are in)? ziggler? jericho?

I doubt HHH is coming back out to face Brock. Maybe Undertaker vs Brock at mania would be better.

Re: General Pro Wrestling News and Discussion Thread Part Deux!
