So its December .........

Will Ryback lose 3 PPV in a row?
Will rating still be on the very weak side?
Will "The Shield" make a difference?
Will we see more NXT call-ups?

A new Diva with a lot of potential started doing house shows



Her NXT name is Paige

She was in SHIMMER as Britani Knight. Pretty solid worker and only 20. Has lots of NXT matches, just little 3 minute ones, on Youtube.

Edit: She could be like Lita or Daffney. I think she will wind up doing something with Tamina in a heel partnership.

So Flair did an interview basically admitting he is headed back to WWE but not to wrestle (even though the crazy fool wants to)

I want to be in the ring, but it will never happen again. I said I'd never wrestle in WWE...

After a disastrous 3rd hr ..............

WWE is promoting that Vince McMahon will be appearing on Raw tonight


I wish he would stop thinking that he is the answer in front of the scenes instead of a big issue behind the scenes

Vinny Mac makes me not want to watch. I hope he kills a quarter hour but he always sparks ratings from people partying like its 1999.

Also, why can't face Divas win with their finishers? Why is it ALWAYS the roll up? A.J. has some cool finishers.

Lie detector test? I get that it is a soap opera for men but must it be a literal soap opera?

So Ziggler gets pinned AGAIN by Cena & now is putting his MITB briefcase on the line in a ladder match (remember I said this might happen)
Watch Cena wins & cashes in at Mania vs Rock

Vince just keeps fucking Ziggler over

How does Vince McMahon have all this television and booking authority? Wasn't he fired from his position by the board of directors and publicly fired by his own son in law?

Whatever, that didn't happen. He can book RAW, Survivor Series and TLC on the fly and at a whim on live television, even Rock in a title match and non-wrestlers against wrestlers. When the FUCK did he get that power back? How does he have any authority?

Speaking of booking authority, now Booker T's assistant on Smackdown changes RAW matches into Fatal 4 Ways for titles? What in the blue HELL is going on here?

At this point, I'm just assuming Ziggler is ok with jobbing.

Wrestling is really starting to suck, theres not one story I can either follow or care about. Everything meanders all over without any logical finish, stories start and disappear, things take illogical left turns, and there's no natural progression to anything.

They need to stop hiring reality show writers and use wrestling bookers. I know they want to be more diverse, but you also can't neglect your core business.

So Cena beats Ziggler clean AGAIN
The Shield gets run-off
Punk gets destroyed by Ryback with a Table & A Ladder & A Chair

That is how they sell a PPV?

All the heels already look weak

Add in Snuka losing clean to AJ (killing yet another monster Diva) & this has to be the worst booked RAW in a long time

It wasn't terrible. It was borderline bad. Lots of hit and miss stuff and I hated the booking and ends to almost everything tonight. I especially loathe Vickie as a puppet GM being completely dominated by a clearly senile Vinny Mac who had his authority prominently stripped by his son in law.

Another thing I hate is a forced push/upper management forcejob of a wrestler so this Ryback push drives me up the wall. The worst thing is the kiddies and the marks are all over this retarded shit.
It should be panned and villified with Ripoff, Goldberg and We Want Brock chants but the retardos are supping on this horrible forcejob like it is nectar and ambrosia.

The only thing I can root for is a terrible rating.

I agree, but it's not all their fault. You can't underestimate the negative effect Vince (and wrestling culture in general) has on the writers. Chris Kreski, the guy who took over as head writer after Russo left, was known and mocked for using storyboards in his work. He created storylines with continuity and layering and built a great reputation for his writing. Vince replaced him with Stephanie in November 2000. As far as I know, she had no writing experience prior to taking that position.

It isn't the writers fault when Vince changes his mind almost daily
The writers "might" be good, who knows but as we all (well most) know Vince makes the decisions & changes them constantly
I agree in principle that there should be a "booker" (not Booker T) in charge & maybe writers to flesh it out
But that booker is Vince & we can see the rest

But I did think Sandow came across like a star
its funny but he reminds me of a mix of Macho & The Genius
