He's a Heyman guy. He said so in his pipebomb promo that started this whole shebang.

i know, it just seems stupid. if they want to keep heyman on there are other guys they could pair him with. i just hope we dont see him talking for punk, he's back on top form lately.

Item 1 for why Bully is the best heel right now: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=pl ... 6aFMdaeLg#! and also the reason he should never go back to the 'E, he'd never do stuff like this

Bully has signed a new contract apparantly rumoured to be two years, FANTASTIC!

Hopefully see the heavyweight belt on him at some point in those two years

Is the Wrestlemania main event for next year not already been confirmed as The Rock vs Lesnar for the WWE title?


My prediction is they advance the storyline of the Heyman/HHH lawsuit, with Heyman thereby getting some sort of partial control over the WWE and Punk abusing that power to keep the title, and build up into him vs The Rock at the Royal Rumble that way. Either way Heyman on TV is always a good thing in my book.

Nothing is confirmed yet, the most trustworthy rumour i heard is that HHH wants to do the rematch and has the power to make it happen. An interesting option i heard from another fan is punk aand lesnar vs cena and rock, though there are no real rumours about that one, and it will never happen at wrestlemania

I haven't watched Raw yet, but apparently Lawler collapsed at ringside of a heart attack and it definitely wasn't a work. As much as I detest him for some of the things he's done over the years and for how he commentates these days that is still quite scary. I definitely hope he recovers.

No Surrender was solid alright. The 3 title matches were all enjoyable, even the knockouts match. It was the best match i've seen Tessmacher in, but she's still a weak champ who relies on Tara's experience for a good match. Zeema Ion is good in his way but that match shows TNA sometimes don't know when to give the titles to someone deserving. Sanjay needs to be X Division champ soon. Having a veteran as champ will make it more desirable i think. And unlike some i'm really enjoying Daniels and Kaz as tag champs- they're getting better with each match as a team.

RVD vs Magnus was okay but Magnus should have been put over. Both Aries and Knox looked great in their scrap but really that was just there to advance the storyline. Of the 3 BFG matches Storm vs. Bully Ray was the best and Roode looks like he's about to have a fresh character overhaul. Less delusional and more mean. I thought Hardy beat Joe a little too easily though. Making Joe tap on Impact worked fine because of the whisper in the wind connecting with the injured arm, but at the PPV Hardy should've been made to work harder to beat Joe. And after Bully Ray's career-changing promo I was really disappointed by the final. 7 minutes of Bully Ray beating on Hardy followed by 7 minutes of them trading finishers til Hardy won? Boring. I just hope Jeff realises that he'll have to pull out all the stops against Aries at Bound For Glory.

King's not out of the woods yet, but things look pretty positive at the moment.

Hopefully he'll make a full recovery.
All right, so I MADE a mistake! ONE MISTAKE!

King is awake and eating etc, he sent a video to FB last night from hospital, he looks like shit, but after having heart surgery so would I, I hope he makes a full recovery, he will never wrestle again though, and for me, that's not a bad thing, he doesn't need to take those bumps any more, he's given us enough

I would have expected him to look a lot worse than he does.

So basically there was a return match of the No Surrender main event on Impact with the exact same finish for absolutely no reason? Come on TNA, you can do better than that.


How was Night Of Champions? I still have that to watch and last night's RAW, but not sure whether to watch that first or last saturday's ROH TV and Death Before Dishonour first.

NoC was very predictable - though the definite high point, Kane and D Bry hugged :lol:

and TNA, the match was atleast a good tv match, first time I've got in to a match for ages when Ray hit the Bubba Bomb the second time, swore he was gonna win.
Still think something will happen between now and BFG which will mean Hardy is not in the title match - prolly A&8 related and the unveiling of their leader (Jarrett I assume)
