Punk has been astoundingly hateful and full of venom of late and it's wonderful to behold. He's such a natural heel. (Even though he still gets cheered every time his music hits.)
In the last 2 days, I've been pretty excited by the possibilities all over the show (then again, how many times have you heard that one before?). I'm glad they're giving Ambrose/Rollins/Other Dude meaningful time. I feel like they've got at least 2 stars in waiting there (not sure what to think about Reigns yet).
Agreed! WWE is actually pretty exciting with all of the promising/accomplished talent and intelligent booking, holy shit
that they've been introducing since I started watching again a month ago or so. I mean, their faces are still almost universally self-involved assholes (Kane/Bryan notwithstanding, obviously), and Cena segments are as painful as ever. AJ stuff alternates between cringe-inducing and misogyny and stigmatizing mental illness; hopefully the Dolph*/Big E affiliation and the seeming shift in direction towards competence allows them to write her like a quasi-human being in the future. But on the whole? Lots of potential, it seems like.
And yeah, I thought that when Summer of Punk Jr. happened and drew me back in too, only to get a story revolving around John Cena and Kevin Nash's cell phone. (kinda worth it for lol kevin nash, i thought he was dead lol
Also, holy shit, Dolph is turning into a great talker/actor. His facial expressions and mannerisms have been top notch the past few days. "Earmuffs, babe" and the little nod he gave was the cutest thing.
