last night was one of the besr RAW's I have seen in months apart from the old school RAW which was awesome

Sheamus and Morrison are impressing me with each match they have , Santino is actually teaching Koslov how to wrestle , not the other way around in real life :lol:


But does Danielson ever have a bad match :|

The quicker the South African guy gets away from Nexus the better ,he has more talent than the lot put together,apart from maybe Harris, who i think is going to be a major player in years to come

WWE.com's Top 25 matches of the year has HBK/Taker at 'Mania and Ziggler/Danielson at Bragging Rights tied for top spot. Pleasant surprise, given that the latter is my personal favourite WWE match this year. Glad they're actually making an effort to put these guys over :D

I would say Im more into wwe than ive ever been these days! TLC was fantastic and imo their ppv of the year. Cena vs Barrett was fantastic, infact im gonna go as far as to say the cena vs nexus angle has been my fave story since the invasion (which they ballsed up towards the end sadly).
Michael Cole is still a prick though!

As much as i love tna, the last few impacts have been very messy with little cohesion - ratings system anyone...?

I have this weeks raw and live smackdown to watch tonight and cant wait :yes:

Tempted to go to one of the wwe house shows in april, havent been to one in ages so if anyone here could lemme know what the atmosphere/matches/production is like itd be most useful!
I can see by that look that you have in your eyes, you came here for metal to fight and to die!

I love Eric Young.

"Where'd you get that title belt?"
"It's a long story, started when I was 6 and well... I just found it in the trash and now I'm champion. It's awesome"

Impact is picking up a little recently, hope it continues into the next year.

Plus this odd way of doing promos is a nice contrast to the WWE ones.

Don't know if anyone noticed, TSO were used for the opening video to TLC.

Again I say, while Gabriel is very good, without the Nexus he would be nobody and go nowhere. Talent most certainly does not equate to success in the WWE, and he can't talk to save his life. Barrett is a godsend to all of them because of his great speaking skill.

I've never been that high on Gabriel.

I haven't seen him in a one on one for fucking ages, and all I remember him for is botching the 450 every now and then.

barrett is the only member of nexus with any chance of success without the rest of them

P.S. If I have to see Ziggler Vs Kofi with or without tag buddies one more time, i'm going to cry. They're both good, but i'm so insanely fucking sick of it.

Sheamus is awesome

Morrison is great but his gimmick is stupid

Alberto Del Rio needs to be champ

Edge/Kane is dire.

Barrett is ace

Punk makes Raw ten times better.

not for a while. unless they want to make christian the number 1 contender when he comes back.

i dont think del rio needs the title right now, it would be like undertaker or triple h being champion, theres no point

Alberto Del Rio needs to finish this fued with Rey.

They can't do one-on-ones because of a falling apart Rey, but without the one-on-one this thing is never gonna bloody end. It was exciting at the start, now it's kind of pointless.


The Punk/Cena feud will be great as long as it's booked right (Bit silly to expect that from WWE when Cena's involved but eh). Far as I know, Punk isn't a great fan of Cena IRL, so should add that extra bit of heat, plus both guys are great on the mic. The matches should be good depending on how much freedom Cena's given to actually wrestle rather than just do 5 moves.

I just hope it's not booked as Punk, the weak, cowardly heel attacking him from behind all the time. Because Punk isn't a weak, cowardly heel. He's better than you.

Am I the only one who thinks Gabrielle in ring is 10 times better than any member of Nexus :|

Apart from Harris, who i thought was head and shoulders above nearly everyone on NXT

Del Rio , i see nothing in him either , he's boring in the ring
