i just finished watching my recorded RAW from last night since i had nothing else to do right now. it was good to see more actual wrestling action than the 'variety show' crap they been putting on lately. if this keeps up i might actually stick around to watch RAW during the actual showtime, instead of setting the DVR to record it.

only a couple things really stood out to me in this ep. everything else was either expected or mediocre at best. its good to see Jericho back, but who knows how long for? i actually have a crazy longshot prediction about him, which ill post in the predictions thread after this. but other than that, i only have 2 things to say about this RAW...

1. im HATING R-Truth's new entrance music!

2. im LOVING Daniel Bryan's new entrance music!!! why? let me explain...

ever since ive started watching wrestling, ive always paid attention to entrance music. over the years, ive even learned how to play some of the songs on guitar, like Ultimate Warriors, Demolitions... etc... etc... but then there are the entrance themes that are not not rock or heavy metal or rap that STAND OUT among the rest. these are the entrances that are classical music, played by symphonys or orchestras, and from wat i know they all belong to wrestlers who have had HUGE illustrious careers...
1. Randy Savage - Pomp and Circumstance
2. Ric Flair - theme to 2001: A Space Odyssey
3. Undertaker - Chopins Funeral March
and now,
4. Daniel Bryan - Flight of the Valkyries
i know this little observation of mines is kinda way out from left field, but its just something i noticed. Savage, Flair and Taker have all used classical music for entrance themes, and look at them now! ALL HUGE names in pro wrestling, ALL had long unforgettable careers, and ALL have been World Champions. id say if Bryan keeps this theme, hes in pretty damn good company...

Here here for more wrestling and less variety show! NBC you got SNL for that...or well used to when it had actual talented actors...

To add to your replies, yes Truth's new song sucks more than his one he first began in TNA. What IS a crunk, or am I showing my age, heh? Oh and Ted Dibiase's song also blows. Man I miss good Jim Johnson songs! At least Ride of the Valkyries (I had to relook if it was Flight or Ride, apparently it's Ride but whatever we know what song we're talking about but I digress) works for Daniel Bryan since they can't secure the rights to Final Countdown by Europe as easily due to copyrights being more lax for an operatic song than an actual band even if old.

That's cool if you can play the guitar! Hmm I've likely mentioned my fav songs in the sticky Best Theme thread somewhere but yep with you on some of those songs that are actual songs that have lasted over time. In the indies too we get more leighway to choose such songs since copyrights is not as badly enforced. I love myself being an anime fan when a wrestler uses anime j-pop themes or opening songs from shows that get huge pops with younger crowds. It would be nice if wrestling would look again to classic music as it does have that big aura feel to it when heard. Trust me even if some acted shocked when Bryan came out to it, but it will catch on.

A funny aside when it didn't quite work-remember HHH when he came out to THIS:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G52qjx2gnaA

Ah how far he came heh.

ah, i prolly wouldve included HHH to my list but nah. cuz first of all, he didnt use that entrance music for very long and second, i dont like him! ahaha! why dont i like HHH? well, lets just say that if I were the bosses son-in-law, i bet i could be the 12-time World Champ too... and thats just one of the many reasons i dont like HHH. i know hes great on the mic, and at one time, he was also a good booker backstage, but with his new corner office and his new "senior advisor" position i think i rest my case. i know alot of ppl out there may not agree with me, but hey its my opinion.

i had a lot more to say, but my baby mama wants to go shopping, so ill be back later...

Heh don't even GET me started on my HHH hate ever since he married into the family. As I'll always say don't get me wrong he even had a good career even after that and used to be a really good worker (heck consider when he did use Ode to Joy and was a Blue Blood he was about Jericho's size) but I feel between the politics, the ego to break Ric Flair's title record since he's his idol, and when he got "a lot bigger" he's not been interesting and more frustrating to watch. Heck I think it's almost best upon return to be heel as I also find he's not a good face overall and a WAY better heel even if he can play face, similar to guys like Edge, Jericho, CM Punk, and I daresay John Cena and Randy Orton too even if face they're the big 2 right now. But for now we'll see if he comes back and does both jobs or focuses on just one-time will tell.

Happy shopping!

back in the days before my kid came along and i had nothing to do in my freetime, i was also a "know-it-all insider". i got on all the inside websites and tried to leech all the inside info on pro wrestlers that i could. i did that for years. always trying to know more wrestling than my co-workers or my buddies and always trying to get the best spoilers FIRST. after doing that for so long, i realized that only about 25% of the info out there is true. 50% of it is mostly speculation and the last 25% is just plain old bullshit. case in point is the whole 'Ultimate Warrior being dead' rumor. if u were around during that time, u cant tell me u never heard of it and u KNOW u believed it too. thats when i realized that the only REAL insiders are the reporters who write all that stuff online that we 'wannabe insiders' read, so i eventually stopped reading. there were countless other rumors and other bullshit that went around, but then there was also the TRUE stuff...

one of the TRUE things i was hearing and finding out about at the time was the HHH/Chyna/Stefanie thing. first, rumors started that HHH was seeing somebody other than Chyna(cuz we all knew HHH and Chyna were already an item). a few months later, the whole HHH marrying Stefanie storyline started happening on TV. if u put 2 and 2 together u shoulda already knew wat was happening. then there were storys of Chyna and HHH fighting backstage, then they were NOT arriving at arenas together anymore and this and that... all of this happening during the Mcmahon-Helmsley era. then the bomb dropped... HHH and Stef got married in real life. and soon after, Chyna left WWF for 'personal reasons'.
(that quick account of events of mines may not be entirely accurate, cuz im going totally off memory right now, but im sure if u do ur own research and look it all up, thats basically how it went down. i know how a lot of u insiders out there will jump all over me for anything even slightly inaccurate, so this is my "disclaimer" of sorts. and if u still got a problem, i got 2 words for u...)

it was obvious, HHH dumped Chyna for Stef. at that time, i already HATED HHH with a PASSION. ever since i saw wat happened during the Montreal Screwjob, i hated BOTH HHH and Shawn Michaels(although i do believe Bret screwed Bret in that whole ordeal, but thats a different story). years later when the documentary "Wrestling With Shadows" came out, it only reaffirmed my reasons for hating HHH. he was shown there as a Shawn Michaels kiss-ass and stooge.
in fact i think the only reason he was part of "The Kliq" was cuz he knew how to suck up so damn good. Sean Waltman was more part of the Clique than HHH should ever be. idk where HHH actually fit into the Kliq, but just cuz he was associated in the whole MSG Curtain Call thing, he was getting screwed over in the booking and was getting held back for pushes as a form of 'punishment'. so he decides the only way back up the ladder was to kiss-ass like he never kissed before. and wat better way to kiss-ass than get married to the bosses daughter?
next thing u know, hes kissin Flairs ass and kissin Vinces ass and now hes 12-time world champ, never loses at Wrestlemania and got a new office with a view at headquarters. HHH has got good ideas and had good storylines and is not bad on the mic and is kinda funny too. but i dont think he woulda got there if he wasnt married to Stef.
if HHH comes back to action, and uses his stroke to cock-block the new talent, then i wouldnt be surprised. personally i want Flairs record of 16 World Title holds to remain unbroken, but if HHH gets his way, he'll be the one to break it. watching Flair at his HoF induction, and listening to him grease up HHH like that, pretty much put up the red flag. he practically told the entire wrestling world that HHH is the one to look out for, and i know he was right on many different levels.
i hope HHH comes back as the new GM. that way he could input his storylines from the outside, rather than include himself in them and eventually pushing his own intentions. either that or else we'll see HHH become the NEW 18-Time World Champion. but hey, who knows? i surely dont, and neither do all them other wrestling insiders.

wow that was quite a rant... hopefully didnt borify too many ppl. but thats how i feel about HHH and that should be that. trust me, u wont hear me rant and rave about that kissass anymore than needed after this...

I know being an insider it's a mix bag too. I've been a freelance writer before in my university days so sifting news from the rest has been done in my time doing it. I've also been fortunate to meet some of the reporters and people in the industry, in the wrestling news scene and otherwise to also help. Yeah it's harder to avoid in today's technological age the spoilers or the news, and I do try to watch the shows as they are without help, but I sort of roll with it too whether I'm posting on this diverse group or otherwise. I like how diverse the group is even when I go from agree to disagree and back and forth on what's said. It makes for a more educated and knowledgeable viewing.

And thanks on the heads up if I start a family, heh. Again you're another form of fan in the family man, and we got so many it's intriguing to report the news to you all and do other duties here on the WWE group of CR I guess the writer in me is going even through rough times in the wrestling industry so I do prefer to get things down in type while citing sources, and giving news while trying as best as I can to warn when it's rumour, and indicate when it's just opinion of someone or my own. While I might be categorized I guess being freelance as a "wannabe reporter" as you call it, I still feel it's best to try then to be as accurate as one can be (no one can be perfect) while at least trying to also engage and intrigue the readers.

And as for the HHH topic you pretty much hit the main points. I've not liked anyone using politics to get to the top even if it's the norm, and I feel it's better to help the industry rather than go out for one's self having met so many in the indies or from the big 2 in the past who do work for the betterment and entertainment of the fans. I've matured too, learning and listening to take all sides into considering how I view things too. It's life, and backstage is what I cover since it's the stuff that's real and as intriguing as what's presented in front of us on TV in the ring. I think it's safe to simply say any reporter, wannabe or real, tries to be accurate but we're human so we sometimes miss and goof.

As for HHH which is the topic of discussion, I too wish he'd now at age 41 with a family cut back so he conserves his own body that's been hurt so many times and work to help the industry now. He's got such a rare spot that most envy, and you'd hope like HBK and others that experience changes a man for the better. If he even came back on TV as the GM or some major role not in the ring that could work so long as we're getting a good product that makes sense and entertains like wrestling used to as we say back in the day. If he goes the other way and uses his new executive role to get even more "ahead" with more title wins and such, I guess our opinion on his ego won't change-but I'm willing to give the man a chance to show what his hand will be.

Hey good stuff, no worries on length as I'm long winded too when I get going, heh. Ta!

in 2009, Taker vs HBK at Wrestlemania 25 was a match to remember. there was no need for Taker to accept a rematch, but since it was HBK's 'swan song', they did it again in 2010 and Michaels got the send-off he deserved in true WWE fashion. not long before that unforgettable match at Wrestlemania 26, HBK also wore gold for the very last time as Unified Tag Champs with HHH. it was as if he were revisiting his old glory days before finally saying goodbye to the wrestling world. ive noticed that many wrestlers try to do that before they retire. yes, some come back out of retirement for watever reasons they may have, but if they got enough stroke to ask for wat they wanna do before they finally leave, they usually revisit their glory days. whether it be a last title run, or one last hardcore match or maybe even one last feud with their fav opponent, they usually wanna go out doing wat was most memorable to them and to the fans... kinna like wat HBK did, and kinna like wat the Undertaker seems to be doing right now...

we havent seen a Taker vs Kane feud in about 10 yrs, but look wats happening now. is Taker also revisiting his old feud one last time? Paul Bearer was supposed to have been buried in frikkin cement the last time i heard! but tonight hes poppin out of a coffin carrying that trusty old urn (which was supposed to have been melted down and turned into a necklace by the Godfather). is Taker bringin the band back for one last run? all the pieces are coming back together. all we need now is for Taker to don the old trenchcoat, grey legwarmers and black hat and we got ourselves a true old school party! maybe we'll get to see him throw a jabroni into a body bag like he used to do! could all the old school revisits mean this is Takers swan song?

it sure looks like it to me. i trust the WWE will come up with something honorable to send off a true phenom like the Undertaker in the way only he deserves. no one in my mind has stayed more faithful, more dedicated and more 'OVER' than the Undertaker throughout the years in the WWE. hes a staple to the brand, a symbol to the franchise and an ICON of the entire wrestling world! if the return of the Kane feud, and the return of Paul Bearer signals the final run of the Phenom, then i cant wait to find out wats in store for us as fans to witness. i can already see him winning Hell In A Cell (which originated with Taker, btw) and taking the Heavyweight Title all the way to Wrestlemania. or maybe he ends the Kane feud and jumps to RAW for a final run with the WWE Title (ive never seen him with the spinner belt - has he ever had it before? i dont remember). either way, if he drops the title at Wrestlemania and ends his streak as well, if done right, it could be a very worthy send off.

ive always loved the Undertaker since i was a lil kid and lately ive known he wouldnt be around forever. if all these recent events are a sign of his final run in the WWE, then i cant wait to see it.

You're a football fan like I and I call this Swan Song like approach the "John Elway" wish-where he went out on top twice which I could almost never see happening again in most sports. Wrestling of course it's more controllable and I'm sort of fine with it, but am more of a fan of the guys who when they're winding down do what's good for the business putting young talent over so they can get the rub of beating a legend. From Chris Jericho to Mick Foley to Tommy Dreamer to show how it scales, they are cool on doing so and it takes no luster off their departures I find.

Taker's an intriguing one going back to come full circle with the whole Kane and Paul Bearer story, and I do like it as its own story conclusion. Kids get to see what us elders loved about Taker in a way, as I'll admit even knowing since I do the Behind the Scenes news that the WAY they re-introduced Bearer (yeah sure forget the cement deal-it was a stupid thing anyways) was stellar. For me Taker's a unique dude, with a gimmick if you ever read at http://www.wrestlecrap.com and other places how an undead zombie got over. I don't even recall much about his title runs like how others want to be remembered because to me he's about the Streak at Wrestlemania, his thing like Cal Ripken's Ironman Streak or the Miami Dolphins' perfect season, where it's one of the few things so special in today's wrestling industry. Again I've been of the type to retire him now with it, and it's up to him if he wants to go out that way or pass the torch via losing to a young kid who can run with being the one to do it.

As for bringing a faction back like in the past I've asked myself too about it. I could see it happening with maybe a mix of old guys Taker ran with in factions like the Ministry who might be or are active still like Mideon, Viscera, the Brood (Edge/Christian/Gangrel). Mix in like you said maybe some youth who would fit into that type of faction like perhaps CM Punk, Ezekiel Jackson, the Usos, Joey Mercury, Luke Gallows, Tyler Reks and maybe even some FCW talent like Husky Harris, Bo Rotunda, Joe Hennig, Buck Dixon, Mason Ryan, Vic Adams, Tyler Black and Alex Koslov I could see it being good for him and others!

As the old song goes, it's his party and he'll cry/mope if he wants to...or go out with a blast. I do hope if his body's calling it a career he does get some form of sendoff he likes, then rest a while before deciding where to go from there. He's a legend, an easy HOF candidate, and from what I hear from talent that I've talked to in the past he's a locker room leader too. It would be intriguing too considering how he stays in character so much if he does ever do a biography, gets into the behind the scenes jobs, decides to get more involved in his passion for MMA/UFC, or simply enjoys family life. Whatever he wants of course, the man deserves it.

ive been posting in this thread for a while now, and although i do appreciate trigunkwan's responses, i cant help but wonder why nobody else has put anything up in here along with us. except for the occasional posts from the respectable, one and only andy1, no one else posts up in here other than me and kwan. i have to ask WHY NOT?

i wanna make it clear to all u readers out there that when i post in this thread, i am NOT posting directly to kwan nor am i only expecting or only entertaining responses from kwan exclusively. i post for ALL u readers out there to read. when i use the word "YOU" (or more like "U"), im referring to U as the reader in general. unless i specify his name, im not talking only to kwan or the the person who posted above me. i know it may seem that way, since this thread is mostly all posts from 2 ppl, but im talking to ALL of U. so i really hope u readers out there are not thinking that this thread is meant as only an exclusive conversation between me and whoever.

id like to hear and read the opinions of ALL of U if possible. i know alot of u readers are prolly thinking my posts are all bulls#!t, or maybe u totally agree with my opinions, or maybe u even have ur own different opinions other than that of me or kwan or andy1. if so, id like to read about it! good or bad, id like to know. this thread could be a whole lot cooler to read if a few of u out there would post or 'blog' ur opinions on here along with us. its always refreshing to hear a new voice every now and then.

but until that happens, im gonna continue to post my bulls#!t for as long as im allowed to. i just look forward to hearing bulls#!t from all of U out there as well...

lol Well that's one way to put it. But yes as always it's an open forum so everyone while you're not forced to post, don't feel scared to post either-it's EVERYONE's forum so please to contribute and no need to ask-especially on this discussion thread. We welcome you reading all things in the group, and with you enjoy it to its fullest and that includes posting thoughts too!

Ok onto a topic I think worth looking again at. I've been a proponant to get John Cena heel again as he's at a point in his career where maybe it's best for both a change of pace, and to freshen the character up. The argument of "heel Cena doesn't sell merchandise" has lessened of late and even WWE execs see that the gains from a heel turn story wise might be worth it as they can outweigh merchandise sales if they help PPV buys and TV ratings which are in the toilet right now dying to UFC and the NFL.

I see it this way: that stipulation for Cena/Wade Barrett, even if of late stipulations have been hurt for not being followed up ANYWHERE in WWE or even TNA for that matter, can always start somewhere to make them work again. Sure we got the option of spliting Nexus up and letting them individually sink or swim but I feel that would throw away what can still be salvaged unlike other "experts" in the IWC (Internet Wrestling Community) or the reporters too. I think that option B is way more intriguing: Cena losing and forced to join the Nexus. I like this since a good heel turn sometimes needs a stimuli, as in a taste of why being evil is good as the old liner goes. It's not like he's got a lot of steam now in the title picture so long as Orton is the hot champ the fangirls and some hardcores adore. And if there's ever a chance to do them again to freshen it up it might be nice to see how face Orton would do against heel Cena which can be good since I recall his decent feud with the late Eddy Guerrero. Let him slow turn with Nexus, then they can still split up after or notm, or even have Cena find out who their REAL leader is that they hinted when they began having "a higher calling". Either way I'm saying with a HIAC PPV in a mere week, that match has a chance to help the Fall season of the WWE especially with a move coming for Smackdown and a lot of bunched PPVs coming soon.

Cena, come to the dark side, slowly but surely.

as i am too frustrated with the Raiders KILLING THEMSELVES with stupid penalties (its 20-17 Raiders 7:00 3rd - Raiders threw for 70 yds just now), i will post in response here so i can calm my nerves down a bit.

John Cena, John Shmeena... i really dont care if Cena turns or not. i think its more fun to hate him as a face instead of hating him as a heel. (we just missed a field goal... dammit... wat a waste of a 70 yd reception... frikkin raiders...) i just dont like the direction they are going with the whole Nexus thing. i dont see wat good will come from Cena joining the Nexus if he loses. the Nexus is supposed to represent the NEW and FRESH talent, not the old and tired. Cena joining the Nexus will only break them up, and i dont see any of them holding up on their own in the WWE. at least not YET, anyway. plus, i doubt Cena would lay down for Wade in the first place.

the Nexus had SO MUCH HEAT when they first came out. i saw a HUGE possibilty for a shift in power on the horizon, but nothing ever happened. (arizona just scored... 20-24 arizona... 1:00 3rd) i just think they coulda done SO MUCH MORE with the Nexus than they have.

im gonna cut this off here so i can drown my Raider frustrations in a few bottles of Dos Equis... i wont post anymore while watching football at the same time. this is wat happens when i watch a game by myself...

Least you got a win...passing on talking my 49ers for now...

I know Nexus SHOULD be the fresh talent faction but sadly seeing how that boat has sailed I think a Cena join to slow turn him heel either within it or just to start him off might be worth a try. I'm not a fan of this split crowd as it's getting very old IMHO for a fan experience as I've now not supported the kids/fangirls OR the hardcores for either side as it's so counterproductive like the "What" chant that stuck around way too long from the old days, or in Canada the STILL existing "You Screwed Bret" chants. Also because we all see Cena is not in a helping mode to help talent (nor is Orton or HHH who technically are your top 3 faces on RAW once HHH returns which is a really bad thing with Jericho gone for least a while) is why he SHOULD start doing such things to both help the talent AND himself get the hate off him. In the long run I'd rather guys try at least to get over the right way, not the selfish way even if that's my wishful thinking.

But yes I do agree as many have that the handling of Nexus, an angle that helped them through the summer and gotten new talent in a new way was then handled in classic fumbling fashion. Yeah ok I shouldn't talk too much during down NFL team times too...

On a different topic for discussion-loving Paul Bearer back that it's only hope maybe if he shows manager DO help talent get over who don't talk or characters are better with one that we get more. Byron Saxton is doing the role in FCW and there's tons of guys who would help out there like Larry Sweeney, James Mitchell and others!

i had enough football this weekend after watching my Raiders self-destruct, so i ended up watching RAW with my buddies. i guess ill post a lil about the show (which wasnt half bad) since im waiting for them to come back with more beer.

a couple things stood out to me tonight. i frikkin LOVED IT when Edge used a damn steel chair on that stupid laptop!!! BWAAHAHAHA!!! he even dropped an elbow on it! LMFAO! that shit was HILARIOUS!!! ive been wanting for someone to do that for a LONG time, man. the GM's lame-ass computer voice was terrible, but the outcome of that segment was priceless! good job, Edge!

ive said before that i think Cole is a weak announcer, but i DO agree with him on 1 thing: when the Hart Dynasty were champs, they were BORING! i know ive mentioned that a few times in earlier posts. and that was even BEFORE Cole said anything about it this week or last week when the Harts sat at the announce table with them. they BORED me to DEATH as Champs! but now... now that they arent Champs anymore and theres a hint of tension between them, things are starting to get interesting! i like watching when a tight Tag Team breaks up!

when Jericho was naming off all the wrestlers hes beaten throughout his career, they cut to commercial midway through his list. when they came back, he was naming all the TNA stars! LOL! that was kinna amusing. but not long into his lil promo, i did get a sense that this speech of his wasnt just a normal pre-bout rant, but more like a farewell speech. my buddy kept reminding me that his contract is up or hes taking time off or some shit, but even if i didnt know any of that, it still felt like he was leaving. after the punt to the head, i knew that was his ticket out. so if he dont show up next week, or the week after that, or if they announce some kayfabe concussion that puts him on the DL for a while, then what i felt during that "farewell speech" was pretty genuine. sad to see ya go, Jericho! u always been one of my favs! hope to see ya back in action soon! (most likely as a face sometime before Wrestlemania, thats if he signs back with WWE)

Yes we Canadians are insano as we got CRAZY EYES. You haven't seen the various versions of the Hacker wrestler up here where his weapon of choice is a keyboard-it's quite a site with anime fans and/or wrestling fans at shows running to get the broken keyboard keys post match, particularly the CTRL and DEL keys for some reason so there's a question to ask your kids why, heh. And yes high time SOMEONE did in TRON/Stephen Hawkings evolving Anonymous Laptop GM of RAW.

OK fine the Harts have been portrayed as not good on the mic which sucks as it's again the scripts. I find when they interview outside the ring it's fine, not outstanding but passable. Vince has this pre-notion again most Canadians are boring, ask Lance Storm who is also a great talent forced to work a boring angle. I hate it, hate now they're doing a split when already the tag division is near non-existant, and hate how Vince hates all us Canadians ever since the Bret situation and even if some of the hatchet is buried it's obvious it's not fully done with. I got no issue with tag splits...if the division wasn't so near death as it is!



Jericho's farewell speech was indeed that until he decides if he wants back after some rest. He could also be calling it a career with a lot of other things on his plate like his band Fozzy, the return of the gameshow Downfall, and another book.



I loved the list-if you know his WCW days it's a homage to his Man of 1004 moves promo vs. Dean Malenko who was the man of 1000 holds. He starts the list serious with the likes of Austin, Rock, Mick, Taker, Kane and HHH but as that old promo went it does indeed go into commercial as he legits keeps going to the crowd live, then they come back and it's more comical as he actually listed Mexican Luchadore wrestlers (Villano 1-5, Juventud Guerrera), Japanese wrestlers (Muta, Ultimo Dragon, Masahiro Chono), then as you noted WCW/TNA guys (Booker T, Stevie Ray, Buff Bagwell, Goldberg, Scott Norton, Sting, Scott Hall) and even funny like 3 characters of the same guy (Kevin Nash, then Oz and Diesel). Fans have been cheering him again so if he does one more run as a face so be it as I love his heel role but know his face side works too because he's so charismatic in the ring and an excellent talent too as a wrestler. However he wants to do it, do it his way!

i know Jericho named off a TON of wrestlers, and im sure he prolly did beat most of them... but did he really REALLY beat The Great Muta? i dont even know if Jericho actually wrestled Muta, but i woulda loved to see it! when i used to live in Hawaii, they would broadcast Japanese wrestling from time to time on TV. The Great Muta was one of my FAVS! i guess i could do the research myself to find out if they actually fought or not, but it might be easier if i just ask here.

so i caught a few minutes of NXT last night and there were 2 things i didnt like about it.
1. Michael Cole was back.
2. CM Punk was gone.
wats up with that!? last week, i saw a clip online at the NXT website and they showed CM Punk on the mic at the announce table calling a Divas match. one of the divas hit a spear and Punk did a classic JR-ish impression by yelling " SPEAR! SPEAR! SPEAR!" ahahahaha! he wasnt half bad doing commentary! so why wasnt he brought back? all Cole did was bitch and complain the whole show.

Punk mighta been pretty cool handling the rest of this season's NXT, but in a way its good that hes gone too. a wrestler on the announce table usually means the end for him in the ring. just look wat happened to Macho Man or Taz. well, Macho Man did come back to the ring in WCW. and Taz was injured. so i guess they're bad examples. anyways... it coulda been cool if Punk were to handle the call on NXT but keep wrestling on Smackdown...
