    You'd have to see the journey Punk has gone through in the last year and a bit, to really understand why he is in the position he is. He's basically the answer to those who complain about the product being "too PG". There is an edge to him, that I think the older Attitude Era fans appreciate.

    He's the anti-Cena, basically.

      I can appreciate that! When Cena hit the scene that is when I really stopped watching WWE that and the take over of wcw.

        Those were the days I started watching. The Cena thing, IMO didn't get too ridiculous until 2007-2008.

        Also, sad to see Eve leave. She's one of the few good things about the Divas division.


        Put "2 Fast 2 Furious" in B&W and Se7en thinks he's watching a Bergman film.
        I find the Metal Gear Solid series to be mediocre at best.

          It was around the Umaga feud, where people really started to hate him. Half the promos he cut, was him telling a doctor "I know I'm hurt doc, but I'm going out there anyways!"

          They should just scrap. It can't thrive in a PG market. The only reason people got into it during the Attitude era, was the sex appeal. Well that, and they were just better overall workers as well. Even Stephanie Mcmahon put on some good matches.

          All I see today, are 90lb bimbos who wear too much clothing, and botch every other move. It's not appealing to anybody, and is just a big waste of time.

            I will take Jackie and Luna with a side of Sable and Trish Those were the days!

            WCW was always my favorite though watched it like a hawk from 95-2002 and I always loved the Keeb and Torrie.

              • I was disappointed with RAW. I guess I was expecting more.

                Anyone notice how shaky Flair was?

                  Yup. He couldn't even say the "wooooo" like he used to. Guy is like 100 years old. He should really stop making these appearances.

                  Edit: Just saw he was 63. LOL he looks much older than his age.

                    TNA tends to speed up the aging process. Have you seen Kurt Angle these days? Looks like a crack addict, who works out.

                    But yeah, Flair will never be able to retire. He really wasn't joking when he told Miz "I need this job". The guy has massive debt. Cessaro was bang on. My 5 year old nephew has more net worth than Ric Flair these days.

                      • Has anyone ever checked out XPW before? They are no longer around but when they were it was awesome. Most if not all the female managers were porn stars and it was some of the most violent shit Ive seen outside of Japanease federations.

                          They were an alright substitution for ECW. Way better than CZW, that's for sure.

What's the end game here, Vince? You want to get these guys wrestling, or what? I also can't stand how they are using camera tricks, to create an aura of chaos. That shaky cam bullshit, is so fucking retarded. It just gives me a goddamn headache, and I can't even see what the hell is going on.

                            CM Punk/Brotus Clay??????? Yeah, this ain't no RAW 1000.
                            The only parts of the show I saw were the Ryback/Shield brawl and the scrap between Rock and Punk at the end, and the shaky cam was used both times and it was fucking awful to watch. I haven't watched Raw regularly for the past 6 months, has this become a regular thing now?

                              I hope it's just some kind of experimental thing, but I don't know. I really, REALLY hate the fuck out of it. Reminds me of the South Park rib on Cloverfield, where Randy was running around with the camera.

                                I am hoping to watch WWE again more regularly and I sure hope it doesn't stay around. I can watch movies with the shaky cam effect such as Cloverfield and feel fine but watching it on Raw gave me a genuine headache, I can see they are trying to make the action look more chaotic but it just doesn't work.
