Conspiracy theory would be that Punk's lowest demo has always been women, so WWE could be angling to try and help him there. Hence the woman beater comment. Brown would not have to be involved at all in that case.

(they'll ignore punk's idolization of savage and austin...)

No it's legit he told punk that he was a roid user and punk took offence for that. I know this won't be used for ratings because brown had this problem with andy levy on fox news show red eye.

Yea, that was kinda my hunch as it were. Still interested to see if this goes any further.

So it looks like they're hinting another Punk-Bryan match on Raw tonight (so sayeth wwe.com). I love watching those 2 wrestle just as much as the next guy, but do we really need to do it 3 times in a month (and twice in 6 days)? Save some for Wrestlemania 29 (or 30. whatever).

On the plus side, Rocky's on Raw tonight. Excited to see him bitch slap Cena (literally or verbally, either one works).

That was an awful showing by the Rock. Just pointless drivel and catch phrases. Cena last week called him out and he had literally no comeback. When Cena came out tonight to challenge the Rock, he again outworked him on the mike. Only at the end after Cena punked him did the Rock become decent. Sadly his time away is starting to show. He used to be one of the best on the mike. Sad, sad performance. Punk-Jericho will be epic.

Just re-watched it, you guys are right. Rocky needs to get back into his own on the mic, cause he has the ability to bury Cena.

But honestly, my interest in that match dropped considerably after re-watching that segment. Rock had the crowd going with catchphrases & whatnot, then Cena came out & did his thing. I feel like there's no real reason for this match other than 1) they don't like each other and 2) a lot of people want to see it. Makes sense from a business standpoint, just not really a storyline perspective.

Hope you're right. I can't imagine being an actor would kill your promo skills (especially considering he didn't have any problems around Survivor Series), but he was bad tonight.

And none of this changes the fact that there's still no real story to this match other than the hype of Cena vs. Rock. Be nice if there was something more to it, but that might just be me.

SEGMENT ONE: Who is the Best in the World?

Hmm... a popular veteran returns after leaving the company to focus on other media to trash a current champion/main eventer while the champion/main eventer insults the returning vet for leaving in the first place. Where have I seen that story before? Except, already, this story is more engaging than John Cena/Rock, because Jericho can actually play the heel, while the Rock (who should be the heel in his story as well) can't bring himself to actually get people to hate him (or just isn't good enough to). As well, when Punk decries Jericho for his activities outside of wrestling, it comes off as more believable given that he hasn't starred in movies, done tons of media appearances, and been in commercials like Cena. It's weird that the WWE is basically telling the same story twice in the build-up to WrestleMania, and the better one is the one they're not hyping up.

SEGMENT EIGHT: "Kung Pao Bitch?" Really?

For a guy who we all praise as being great on the mic, the Rock sure as hell blathers on and on and on. This was a boring, meandering segment until Cena came out. About two minutes of content stretched out involving the Rock proving that, yeah, people love him enough to chant damn near anything, including something as senseless and dumb as 'Kung Pao Bitch.' What the hell does that even mean? Cena's promo, on the other hand, was concise and to the point and actually got me interested -- the Rock, too, it seems, because his response was leagues ahead of the dull crap he was serving before Cena came out. It's the same story as Jericho/Punk, except the Rock is trying to pander to the crowd and the crowd is letting him. I'm always amused when I see different reactions for the same actions depending solely on who's doing it... well, we love the Rock and we don't like Cena, so I guess that's all that matters, right? Still... this was a segment where the Rock couldn't hold my interest and Cena brought me back, so there's that.

I agree, but you have to be a major Rock homer to think tonight was a good night for him. This is why I was disappointed because no one used to be able to own the Rock on the mike as he was easily one of the best. Tonight he bad, no way to sugarcoat that. He was only decent tonight after Cena came out and he was forced to be truly on the defensive.

They are trying so very hard to get a 50-50 crowd reaction in Miami (which is ridiculous - Cena's going to get booed out of the building, because a) it's in Miami, and b) it's a more hardcore audience, and hardcores hate cena).

And I thought the Rock owned him yet again last night. It's so transparent which one is a worker and which one reads scripts. The wrist thing is so 180 degrees from reality. But the marks get worked. So good job on that count.

The rock's character, catch phrases, and up until about 1999 his promos word for word, were created by someone else.

This idea of the Rock as some improv mic genius is pure fiction.

This promo was just like his others... a yammering stringing together of a bunch of catchphrases... because stupid people like catchy phrases. That's why nickleback sells records.

The Rock was Goddamned atrocious last night. Work or not, he was even worse than the last time he showed up (when he and Cena traded idiotic phrases). Cena was actually compelling last night, for once. All Cena did was come out and basically say "you're washed up and I'm gonna' destroy you an 'Mania. *drops the mic*"

Meanwhile, courtesy of Brandon Stroud, here's a transcript of The Rock after Cena came out and pwned him:

“LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING RIGHT NOW JOHN YOU’RE BACK THERE LISTENING RIGHT … LET ME TELL YOU THIS. JOHN. ROCK AND DWAYNE JOHNSON, DWAYNE JOHNSON AND THE ROCK, THAT IS THE SAME MAN. THAT’S THE SAME MAN JOHN, THAT’S THE, THAT’S THE SAME MAN. JOHN. AND LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING. LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING JOHN. JOHN, LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING. JOHN. JOHN. JOHN. JOHN. JOHN.

Clear difference to me. Used to refer to himself in the 3rd person, doesn't do it anymore (and I don't remember him doing it last year when he came back, either). His comedy doesn't seem nearly as funny & seems more generic, too (although that could be the fact that I'm not watching him as a kid like I used to).... Whatever, I'm more psyched for Punk-Jericho than this either way.

This is what I find the most disappointing. While Punk/Jericho and Bryan/Sheamus should be the main events and getting more air time they are not and it is sad. This should be an event to propel lesser names up, but instead it looks like they want to keep the relics (HHH, Jericho, Rock, Undertaker) relevant. I did not mind Rock and Cena in the ring tonight, but I guess everyone has their own opinion tonight. The Rock's promos were good with the first one being the best by far.

Agreed. I don't mind HHH-Taker getting so much time and same with Rock-Cena, but Punk-Jericho and Sheamus-Bryan outta get at least some promo time (and I know this is random, but what in the actual hell are they doing with Eve & Ryder?). I mean, has Sheamus ever said why exactly he picked DB? Could have made for a good segment and I know Jericho & Punk could have delivered another five-star segment if given the chance.

As for Cena-Rock, I loved Rock's taped promos. And his in-ring promo was considerably better than last week, and he even referred to himself in the 3rd person a few times (I mark for that, in case you can't tell), but Cena smiling like a bitch & trying to interrupt him half the time just pissed on the whole segment for me. Combined with last week, my interest in seeing those 2 wrestle has gone down significantly.

Then again, I'd rather watch Punk vs. Rock than Cena, so there's that....

The no-selling of Rock's face-to-face stuff actually deepens the character dynamic. It indicates that Cena is unconvinced by what The Rock is saying, which reinforces the idea that Cena is trying to draw attention to that The Rock is out of touch and rusty.

I really question whether this is a work. Even if it is it isn't working. It doesn't make me like Cena, it makes me wonder what the Rock is doing and I am losing interest in the match. If it is a work they need to fix it. If it isn't Rock needs to stop trying to defend and sugar-coat something that can't be defended or sugar-coated. Start talking about how hard it was to be the best in his day and how easy it is for Cena now.

The story line of HBK helping HHH only to at last minute feel guilty and Superkick HHH during the match actually seems semi possible now.

There are, as mentioned, other matches that could be great that they are not doing a good job with.

I thought it was another solid program last night. I hope to christ they stick with the serious promos after wrestlemania is over. Punk and Jericho fighting over who's the best, HBK putting himself in the middle of HHH and taker, Cena without the shitty comedy against the Rock, both of them being (mostly) serious makes the WWE seem so much better.

Speaking of Punk and Jericho, should they open the show? The reason I ask is that if there's a match that deserves as much time as they can get from an in-ring standpoint it's that one. If they're the curtain-jerker, there's no worry about losing time to another bigger match running long. So is it better to have them get a full 25-minutes at the beginning, or to have them in a more main-eventy spot, but risk them losing time to something like HHH-Undertaker running late?

So much for serious, eh? At least as it pertains to Rock/Cena... I wish they'd introduce more meat to the feud, but I guess the one-liners about genitalia will have to suffice.



And I wouldn't hate seeing Punk-Jericho open the show, but I feel like people will have forgotten about it by the end of the night. Let Sheamus destroying DB open so we can get that shitstorm out of the way ASAP.... (I'm sure they won't open WM with the WHC 2 years in a row, though.)

Anyone have any thoughts on Jericho's promo after Punk's match? I thought it was a bid weird, but some of Punk's best work (IMO, see video below) came from his feuds with Raven over Punk's dad being a drunk. I can see it either going a bit flat or being a great move.

I'm sure most have, but for those who haven't seen it.... I don't know if we'll see this (for one thing, I don't think Jericho's a drunk like Raven was portrayed as) on WWE PG, but I never get sick of it (except the weird camera angles and Spanish subtitles):

Cena jerking the curtain like that and then only getting a couple of minutes. Which was fine with me, I like his rapper persona even less than I like his hogan persona. I expected the rock stuff to be horrendous but thought it really wasn't. If nothing else, the man can play a crowd.

I think they are targetting the adults pretty obviously, which is sort of a different angle on the serious thing I was referring. Most of both their acts tonight, especially Cena getting bleeped, while juvenile, is most definitely not playing to the 6-year old cena fans in the audience (although they'll love it - 'oh wow, he cussed!'). Which means they're not just trying to sell this to the kids, and they are going a little edgier to I assume try to get back some of the lost 90s audience. We'll see if it works.

I sort of zoned out on the Punk/Miz/Jericho stuff, but the rumor was out earlier today that Miz would interfere with that match at Mania. Not sure how I feel about that.

They're marketing to teenagers. Sure, there's nostalgia for the attitude era that's aimed at adults. But what was the demographic that most loved the attitude era's sophomoric hijinx? Boys aged 16-22 or thereabouts.

I thought Rock's performance last night was horrendous TV. Another heaping helping of misogyny dumped on top of telegraphed, immature punchlines and catchphrase sprees. I'm an adult, and I don't think The Rock's performances of late are for me. They're for... people younger than me.

The end of the rock's segment was bad. Like really bad. I liked the rest fine. It's what the rock's always done. Which I get puts me in the nostalgia demographic. Although in the interest of full disclosure I was playing Mass Effect 3 throughout Raw, so it wasn't like I was glued to the tube.

Hrm.Huge WWE shakeup - FCW done (http://www.f4wonline.com/more/more-top-stories/118-daily-updates/24768-huge-wwe-shakeup-fcw-done)

Officials from WWE told Bright House Sports network today, which airs the FCW shows in Florida, that they are closing down the promotion and will not be doing anymore television after the final three shows taped last week air.

WWE officials told Bright House Sports that they are folding the promotion, closing the gym, and moving everyone to Stamford, CT for the time being until they figure out what they are going to do with developmental.

Those in WWE also heard news today and were given the impression the company was going to do developmental out of Conneticut and possibly open a second developmental territory.

I love that they took a standard Heel Punk promo and turned it into an incredible face promo. Both of them finally seem to be living up to their best.

Note: I've seen 10 minutes of Raw so far and haven't spoiled myself so there's every chance they could ruin it in the next 70 minutes.

I was literally more excited for mania 12 months ago than I am now. I don't think I'm buying it. They've nearly killed the Rock with the audience, Cena comes off exactly the same as he always has. Nothing has changed except that I care less about it the more they're on TV. So in the end the long build hasn't done anything but hurt the match, which is sign number 83471 that the company just completely sucks at basically everything now. The only hope is that the show is a million times better than the build to it, and I just don't have that kind of blind faith.

Yeah I agree. I was excited for this a few weeks ago, but the last few weeks just haven't gotten me very excited for it. I honestly almost fell asleep during the Cena-Rock segment on Monday. Just don't care about it anymore. Not that I really cared that much to begin with.

Apparently Rock didn't show for the hall of fame, which the crowd there didn't like. I'm guessing that was the point. And yet Cena was still booed out of the building anyway. It's going to be an ugly evening for him, I think.

Weather down there was real bad yesterday, but weather.com looks fine right now.

Lesnar is in and signed, and looks to be starting a year-long angle similar to rock last year. No idea who he'll be working with, whether it's undertaker or rock or somebody else. I hope they're smart enough not to oversaturate him with the audience the way they did with rock (that's my pet theory - i think a year long build is a good thing, but having rock wrestle at survivor series was a huge mistake, and having him on raw so often was an even bigger one - he went from special attraction to show regular...).

Still not sure about batista.

keg in kc
04-01-2012, 01:26 PM
I'd say either Cena wins clean or Rock wins with interference. Nobody beats Cena clean, and this whole build (particularly last week, when after months of smack Rock talks about how great Cena is...) has been about trying to bring Rock down to Cena's level. So superman isn't going to lose without shenanigans.

I assume we're getting a rematch whether we want one or not. Cena has to come out on top after all of this. So clean win is the only way the feud ends today. And I really want to think they won't do that.

As far as Lesnar goes, ahhh, memories:

And I would have had him go apeshit and attack Sheamus from behind after.They keep coming so close to actually legitimizing him but they always pull back at the last moment. Their inability to even give him ten minutes at Wrestlemania just makes me feel like there's no way they'll ever consider him one of "their guys," or at least not until it's too late.

I mean, yes, if he'd gone apeshit on Sheamus or started berating AJ, I'd have some hope, but it's going to be so easy for them to just shunt him right back down the card and forget about him now.

And it's also just, holy christ, how dickish can they be to those two guys? Their US title match gets moved to the dark match last year, and this year their WHC match opens the show (not a bad idea, in theory) and lasts five seconds.

Pretty much should of known from the start that Rock was going to win when it was at the top of the card. They almost always have a "send the crowd home happy" main event, and the Rock winning will get a better reaction than Cena.

There were some really good matches, but damn did they completely blow the opener with a squash.

As for the opener, what I think of that match will depend on what they do now. I'm leaning towards it actually being okay because despite it being one of my favorite guys, the fact is that it was a smarmy heel getting his comeuppance in a banana-peel type of finish. Like I said before, I think if it was a real burial it would have happened without AJ. I think that was actually about as much as they could possibly do to protect Danielson while still giving Sheamus a squash win. But it all depends on what they do with Danielson going forward. If it's treated like a fluke and he comes back strong, I won't have a problem with it. If he's treated like a joke and shot straight back to the lower mid-card, then it's another stupid example of Vince cutting off his nose to spite his face.

Too early to tell either way right now I think.

BryanBusby
04-01-2012, 09:46 PM
Rock will disappear for awhile now and Cena will return to OVERCOMIN DA ODDZ

My thoughts on WM:

Daniel Bryan vs. Sheamus - Just ugh. Apparently the word was the squash was booked for awhile and they wanted to break the record for shortest WM match; which they failed. Really? Way to shit on the WHC and setting the tone for a very flat first hour.

Kane vs. Randy Orton - Booooooorrrrrrrrrrrrriiiiiiiiinnnnnnngggggg -Stone Cold

Big Show vs. Cody Rhodes - Match wasn't great, but I was fine with the result. Big Show finally gets a WM moment and they've freed Cody up for a push.

Divas - Trish Stratus vs. Mickie James seems so long ago. I would be okay with them killing off the divas thing.

Taker vs. HHH - Much batter than last years match, and HBK was a good addition although he fucked up one of the counts. Going for more of a story mode over finishers and plenty of naps was a good decision.

Teddy/Johnny - Finish was fine, there were a couple decent spots, but this shit shouldn't of even been on the card.

Punk vs. Jericho - Start should of been at a little higher pace, but overall was great.

Cena vs. Rock - Liked the result, but I would of rather of seen him face someone other than Cena. Cena did a decent job filling in the heel role, but his ring work did drag down the quality of the match a bit. Was pleased though.

I hated the lack of hype promos (the mini-concerts were fucking garbage), and was spending my time during it recalling how the build before Cena/Rock entrances was god awful compared to the Miz intro last year. I am glad they didn't have a Brock Lesnar run in at any point though.

Overall, considering how stacked the card was, this Wrestlemania was a let down. Better booking for the first hour, how they wrote inbetween match scripts and more/better quality promos would of completely changed this WM into a great one.

And I feel no different about the Undertaker....although his match tonight was classic.

I don't know if the match was a classic, but the story definitely was. The match without the story was essentially two guys beating each other's asses with chairs, steps & a sledgehammer. IMO what made it was the story & emotion surrounding it.

Overall, I thought it was a good show with a garbage first hour. I'm not as pissed as most people about the DB squash because A) I saw it coming and B) I'll judge it based on where they go from here (as was said above).


Do we know if HHH and/or Taker are retiring? Cause that was a heck of a way for either of them to go out.

My thoughts:

1.) Bryan squash was bullshit and I have zero faith that it will turn out to be OK.

2.) 'Taker v HHH III was awesome. Way better than I expected. Match of the night by miles.

3.) Punk v Jericho was disappointing as Hell. It was Raw-quality wrestling, salvaged by a wonderful finishing sequence. But the pacing was just off for the whole match. The Punk v Bryan matches given away on free TV a few weeks back were leagues better. That was just... conventional.

4.) The Cena v Rock finish makes absolutely zero fucking sense... unless it heralds a Cena heel turn. Otherwise, that finish does NOTHING positive for the WWE product.

The only match I watched was Rock vs. Cena. I was thrilled Rock got a clean pin on him. Of course, I'm not a fan anymore, and The Rock was the last time I truly was. So I was one of the few that got satisfaction out of that I guess.

Mr. Flopnuts
04-02-2012, 09:48 AM
That said, even though I don't watch it anymore, I still have some guys who I think should be major stars if they're not.

Miz, Punk, Danielson, those guys are talented. Obviously Jericho, but he's not new. He's been around for years.

Honestly, I think Miz has the ability to be a Stone Cold, or Rock type character. I have no idea what they're doing with him. I know the majority here think Punk is the best they have, but I think The Miz is the total package and the best guy on the roster. JMO.

So I was one of the few that got satisfaction out of that I guess.I don't think it was just a few. There were a lot of lapsed fans like yourself who paid specifically to see Rock and Cena, and who were thrilled it ended the way it did.

Unfortunately, taker/hhh match aside, the rest of the show was so bad, so typical of what WWE has become, that they woke up this morning still lapsed fans. It's just awful. Forget about Jesus Cena getting rammed down everybody's throat, and look at all the bullshit from last night that personifies the product right now:

Danielson, the best wrestler in the company, and extremely popular right now, loses in 18 seconds to a mediocre muscle-head.

There are pointless, painfully-bad skits all over the broadcast. I mean, seriously... Did I really see Deadliest Catch advertised on Wrestlemania? Heath Slater and Flo Rida? All that bullshit with Johnny Ace.

Commercials. On Wrestlemania. I paid $55 for this. And I'm seeing K-Mart ads.

That's just the tip of the iceberg.

And the funny thing is, as bad as it was, it was still better than last year's show.

I have no idea what direction they're going tonight, and I'm okay with that. Wrestlemania needs to be the culmination of the year, not the kicking-off point to set off the next night's Raw or the next PPV. Which is why I'm okay (thrilled actually) with the way Rock/Cena ended. That match was the payoff for a year-long build. Which is kind of surprising in itself, because WWE so rarely pays off in a satisfying way anymore. That might actually be the sole redeeming quality of last night's show for the lapsed group. And Cena isn't going to be hurt at all by the way it turned out. His fans are still there. He can come on Raw tonight, talk about how he screwed up trying to show up the Rock and got caught, maybe say he forgot about the "respect" part of his mantra, and use it to propel himself forward.

The slate's clean now. Aside from Punk/Jericho and (I assume/hope) Danielson/Sheamus, tonight could be a fresh raw setting up new feuds and angles. Maybe we see Batista or Lesnar setting up next year, maybe we don't. I assume the Rock will be there, probably his last appearance for a while. I expect we'll see him again for Mania next year, hopefully not against Cena again (I'd actually kind of like to see Punk/Rock; I think they could have a better dynamic on the mic than Cena and Rock did, and Punk's a guy that I think they need to continue to elevate going forward).

And I've been saying this for years, but it's long past time they start introducing new guys. Maybe get Claudio and Hero out of developmental, and a couple of the other guys. They need to be building stars.

Might be fun to do some predictions for tonight.

I'm thinking either Rock or Johnny Ace opens the show. I'm hoping Rock, because the crowd will pop huge with "Do you smell..." But I expect it to be Johnny Ace.

Cena will completely no-sell his loss last night, proving for the 47498th time that wins and losses don't matter in the WWE.

We're leading towards a Cena-Rock rematch at Summerslam, which will in turn lead toward Rock's match at next year's mania, against who I know not.

CM Punk and Jericho will have a rematch tonight that's better than last night's match, or will be involved in some kind of bizarre tag-team match (Punk/Sheamus and Jericho/Bryan?).

Zach Ryder will be made to look like a fool yet again. And I won't care yet again. Because I've never liked Zach Ryder. Not even for a second.

Miz will be wonderfully smarmy tonight, but I don't think they're ready to start giving him wins yet (or ever). Expect him to lose to R-Truth or something random.

I don't think we'll see Batista, but Lesnar will return tonight, interrupting something between HHH and the Undertaker, leading to HHH/Lesnar at Summerslam and Taker/Lesnar in Taker's retirement match at next year's mania. Which I think is a terrible idea. Taker should stop at 20-0. And I don't think anybody should end the streak.

There will be some divas garbage I won't care about.

There won't be the epic feeling from last year with the Rock announcing the match a year out, and the whole program will leave us wondering why we watch rasslin for the 578th time in the last year.


I don't actually expect any of that to be right. I'm just throwing poop at the wall.
