Anyone else think the AJ thing is all just to help Bryan win the title?

William Regal would be a great choice for GM.

I'd love to see Regal get it, the guy is brilliant. He was great when he did it (or something similar) a few years ago and had Tajiri as his assistant.

You only needed to see Raw the other week when Vince was commenting on the 'Kiss my ass club'.
Regal just had to sit there to get a crowd reaction.
He is utterly wasted on NXT.

BTW did anyone else mark out just a little when Pyscho Sid's music hit?

Not as much as for Vader.

True.
I would imagine the new age outlaws must be in the frame as they were a massive part of DX and the attitude era.

SCSA must be on the list as well I would imagine.

Speaking of which I saw a compilation on a certain video website on entry music.
You forget just how good and how load the pop was when that sound of breaking glass hit plus it was a damn fine tune to boot.

Biggest pop ever for theme music is easily backlash 2000 (?) when the rock was fighting triple H and when SCSA's music hit and he came out to help the rock, ive never seen or heard a pop like it, nor will I ever

Saw part of a interview with Matt Hardy and for a change he's seems a little normal.

One of the questions was why tag team wrestling has fallen off the radar:

"We came along during a very special time in the business…the height of the Attitude era. Stone Cold was white-hot and The Rock was a huge megastar. Ratings were great and those guys were selling out arenas everywhere. Management was able to put the top guys on cruise control because they didn’t have to worry, so they had extra time to focus on the tag team division or the women. At the point they’re at now, they’re still scrambling for the white hot guys. John Cena is the face of the company right now but there is no one setting record TV ratings or selling out arenas on a consistent basis. Once they find those one or two top guys that are the franchise players, they can dedicate their attention to tag teams again."

Kind of makes sense.

Yep - hope so. The title needs shaking up. Would love Bryan to be champion. Hope they keep Cena away from the strap for a while longer, leaving the title mix-up to be between DB, Punk, Jericho (if he's there beyond August?) and maybe Ziggler.

Cena in the MitB. I doubt you'd get good odds on him not walking out with the brief case.

I still feel they need to merge the titles together. Go back to just having the WWE title and the IC title. There's not enough talent to sustain two separate shows and the titles to go with them
