Oh yeah, Cena's definitely gotta get his heat back from that. He never recovered to the popularity he had before it happened. No better way to build a rising star than to feud him with Cena!

There's always a couple of "let it play out" guys that always come in here when they first fuck up an angle acting like there is something good that will come out of it. See Brock Lesnar, HHH getting involved with Punk angle, Nexus, Bischoff hugging McMahon, etc. I'm not totally negative on things. I think the WWE of 2012 so far is much better than the WWE of May 2011 or entirety of 2010. They still have the same fundamental problems though. They just do a better job of covering them up with bandaids(Rock, Brock). The box is almost out of bandaids though.

That is what keeps me watching WWE week to week. We get something good every now and then along with the crap we're fed in the main angles.

That is probably what keeps me sane watching it, I don't get home till 10:30pm or so, so I'm always watching RAW on a tape delay with FF button handy.

This is one of the best things to do. Unfortunately for Raw, part of the excitement is in it being live. When I watched in without commercials and speeding through segments I don't care about the show flies by. Just taking out commercials saves you 40 minutes.

Even if you watch RAW on tape delay the same night, you don't have the spoilers telling you the show is bad before hand. So you might be watching RAW in an hour or less but you're still watching it.

I love everything about Sandow's gimmick.

The entrance theme.
That plush robe of his.
The full thick beard.
The way he cradles the mic like a wine goblet when he delivers promos.
His "Thank you for your irrelevant opinion!" catchphrase.
That he's positively unflappable when cutting promos (something Miz could learn from despite being in the big leagues for 5 years now).
The fact that he's effectively ripped off what Mike Knox did for a month and is probably pulling it off better.

That being said, I've checked out a fair bit of his FCW footage and I'm not blown away by him in the ring. He works a very old school, deliberate match style and I'm not exactly sure how well it will translate to the "5 minutes or less" TV format of RAW and Smackdown.

He'd make one hell of a fine stable manager.

The Great Khali actually manages to move slower than The Big Slow. I thought they had only brought him back as a quick and dirty replacement for Mark Henry at Elimination Chamber, but they actually kept him around and even had him squash some young talent.

You people becoming Ryback marks will drive me away from this thread. I can deal with the AJ and Kane crews, but Ill be damned if I sit through another Goldberg circlejerk in my lifetime. The first one was already too much.

Wait until he side shuffle kicks someone like Daniel Bryan into a concussion. YOU FOOLS HAVE SEEN THIS ONCE BEFORE, AND YOU STILL DARE WALK THE PATH OF THINE EVIL SQUASH MONSTER. FOR SHAME, ALL OF YOU.

I don't know much about what happens backstage, but I thought Cena did a good thing with Lobsterhead. Him being Cena clean was pretty unexpected for me, and it did wonders for his career. Not sure what the hell happened after that when he fell off though.

I think Bryan could get though it ok.


Not sure if they want more people to make Cena look bad though.

AND Bryan's finisher is a submission so there is no way he will ever actually beat Cena in any kind of match.


Actually yeah that seems like a bad idea.



Also if they the miz is the main guy in Marine 3 does that mean the Miz is going to be a pro USA army loving face like Cena and Big Show? That could be .... different.

I haven't enjoyed Sheffield since the interplay between him and Regal (as his mentor) on NXT amused me. And that was largely due to Regal.

Might as well get behind the guy they want you to. What's the difference between Ryback and Dolph Ziggler? Ryback's going to be a world champion. Ziggler will be a great jobber for him to beat though. Imagine the 360 Ziggler's going to do when he gets hit by the clothesline.

I understand why people are getting behind Ryback a bit. Fans have always had a softspot for fast paced monsters, Goldberg, Batista, etc. Ryberg has none of the charisma of those guys, but so many of the big guys Vince loves can't move quickly, so it's at least a nice change of pace. But Ryback is not the guy to get behind. At all.

I like him in the sense that he is so ridiculously over-the-top that you can't help but laugh at the display. I guess it means I like him ironically? I'm in no way a fan of him like how Bobo might be, in which I think he's the future of the biz and all that.

Besides, I always lose my shit when he stares into the camera and screams "FEED ME" and all that other shit. He's like a bigger, buffer, more insane Santino, except the comedy is completely unintentional.

Justify all you want, just know that as your love of Ryback grows, so will my ridicule of you and said love.

The day Ryback goes 15-20 minutes and keeps me entertained is the day I become a fan. Until then, he's just a meathead who stole RVD's singlet doing his best Goldburp impression. I was way more impressed with Lesnar's first few squashes.
