They managed to completely destroy the Anonymous Raw GM angle. Well done.

Kidd's getting a long overdue push, if he wins it, don't expect him to cash in for a while as they build him up as a legit contender.

Aries vs Roode - Match of the Year


Impact Wrestling is on a very good roll at the moment with both weekly TV and PPV's. I think Russo going as well as other changes have helped massively, they deserve more viewers and PPV buys. Their own talent is being pushed to the top too, rather than just ex WWE.

WWE deserves to start losing their audience based on what I've read and bits I've watched. As a go home show for a PPV it seemed terrible.

The whole thing with the Punk/Bryan/AJ triangle is that it would be fine as some mid-level feud. But it's not, it's a feud over the WWE title and it's clear that the writers at WWE prefer doing this Dawson's Creek rubbish over say putting the title up as something important.

But hey, WWE is embarrassed that one of the W's stands for Wrestling and have already firmly embedded the idea that matches are not important so why should titles won in those matches be any more important?

I'm looking forward to MITB, a lot. I mean, it's going to be nowhere near as good as it was last year (best PPV in the past five years, for sure), but it's a great concept.

Creative have been urged to come up with a huge summer storyline apparently, similar to 2010 (Nexus) and 2011 (Punk's pipebomb). I wonder if MITB will see anything huge happen, perhaps in relation to someone coming back? Maybe Barrett winning one of the contracts?

Sorry to be pedantic, but technically letters WWE don't now stand for anything (in legal terms), same as KFC no longer stands for Kentucky Fried Chicken. Absolute stupidity though and I fully agree with what you're saying. It drives me insane that they won't just accept and be proud of being a wrestling company.

Well you can now tell the Bella Twins apart.

One's had a boobjob.

About as useful as one of the Uso's having a tattoo on their chest.

You know there's a difference, but you still don't remember which is which. :lol:

No, but I enjoy looking at the pictures trying to work it out. :wink: :thumb:

You mean apart from them going on about it on Twitter and putting up pics you mean?

Side by side for comparison

Now that's what I call TWIN magic :D
