Haha, I loved that show. Probably my favorite WM in the last 10 years. I'm sick of going to a show and trying to cheer Punk, D-Bry (Edge, Jericho in the past. Basically, anyone not Cena or face Orton) & a few other guys while getting shit on. Last night, I was told to "shut up" by some Cena mark when I was applauding something Punk said during his promo. Figure if it was NYC, Chicago or Philly, that guy woulda gotten his ass kicked or wouldn't have even been in the building. Instead, the place was full of people like that, blindly cheering whomever they're told to cheer...
I'm not quite as down about the product as a whole as most of you, maybe I'm still holding out a small amount of hope that they've got a plan in place for a lot of these guys. If we can get a D-Bry vs. Fake Sin Cara feud, I think that could produce some really good matches. And I definitely think there's a long-term plan in place for Punk (not so sure about Barrett, though). And they seem to be wanting to create some legitimate storylines with the women for once (albeit with a horrible champ), and seem to be putting some emphasis on the tag titles, despite there being a severe lack of good teams....
Watching the MitB DVD now. Maybe it'll make me feel better about the whole thing.
