I'd just like to chime in with Stone Cold had serious surgery on his knee in early July and is only like 3 weeks into rehab and can barely walk. So that's the reason he wasn't on or he would have been hobbling down the ramp on one leg and crutches if we were lucky. (lol)
And I agree on the Rock, the dude has gotten so BIG (muscle wise) for movies, to the point where you have to consider the dude is putting on mass at such a fast rate he might be taking something illegal. He is so big right now because he shot that Weight Lifting movie with Mark Wahlberg recently and I agree it doesnt translate as "the Rock" on WWE and more as Dwayne.
Also the RAW 1000, I had no idea it was Triple H1000, seriously, you dont need the last laugh because youre jealous of all the stars that got bigger than you that you now need to bury all the young talent with your 40 year old washed up buddies. It wouldnt kill Triple H and his old friends to put a young guy over on an important night to KEEP people watching. Instead every has been was able to squash guys that will still be on the road tomorrow that they expect fans to pay money to see. Makes no sense.
I like Sandow, you want Sandow to lose to DX fine, but 1 on 5? Can't give Sandow 4 other young jobber heels to have a 5 man tag against DX with? Just squash the guy? Really. And it doesnt even end there, I read the Smackdown spoilers for this week so it's not even like the squash is over.
