I'm presuming they'd booked Hunico to be facing Sin Cara, and the other two to go be the WWE's 3rd tag team that gets TV time, but obviously that's not going to happen with Sin Cara injured.

Also speaking of tag teams, dunno if you heard this but, WWE had a deal on the table with Chris Hero to sign with the WWE, presumably to team with Claudio Castagnoli who signed a bit ago, but apparently the deal's fallen through because of suspiciously high testosterone levels, that could be a sign of steriod use. Makes you think though, how much corporate dick Mason Ryan must've sucked for his testosterone levels to be normal.

TLC was good, ziggler vs ryder was a perfect wwe pg match, great build up, lots near falls and the right guy won, fantastic!

Wouldnt say it was ppv of the year though, imo Elimination Chamber and MITB were way better.
I can see by that look that you have in your eyes, you came here for metal to fight and to die!

Don't tell that to the Colóns. Primo especially is a tag team specialist and works well with Tito.

WWE seems to be using NXT to build up some tag teams. Tyler Reks and Curt Hawkins have been bodged together, trading singles and tag matches with the Usos. They're experimenting with Yoshi Tatsu and Trent Barretta (push him!) as well as Titus McShit and Percy Watson. Darren Young and JTG have been paired off as well.

Nothing particularly exciting but WWE knows there's a demand for a good tag team division and they are trying. The Dudebusters were amazing but they FE'd Caylen Croft. That was a mistake imo.

the dudebusters could have been the best tag team in wwe if they had been handled right. another prime example of wwe dropping the ball.

randy orton has apparently failed his third wellness test and so should be fired, so naturally he's out for six months with "injury" :lol:

Pretty serious let down from Impact last week, in particular the woeful knockouts match (notice the silent Impact zone?) and Hardy's botch in the main event. Haven't watched WWE in a few weeks as I have no access to it at my mum's. Probably wont see anything from it again til The Rumble.

I hadn't heard anything about a supposed failed drug test, I'd heard he'd actually taken a small knock and they didn't want him to aggravate it heading into Wrestlemania and so wrote him off TV for a while, if this is the case and it turns out that Jericho isn't returning tomorrow, I'm hedging my bets on Orton winning the Rumble to set up the Bryan Orton match that was supposedly being billed for 'Mania months ago.

Also on a sidenote, the competitors for the Raw Elimination chamber have supposedly already been booked as being CM Punk, Miz, R-Truth, Alberto Del Rio, Kane and John Cena, so basically a culmination of 3 feuds that in all likely wouldn't need to be booked again past the Rumble.

Jericho is more or less a troll. Plus BotchedSpot called it in October: http://botchedspot.com/2011/10/21/break ... the-walls/ :lol:

Kevin Thorn if not Y2J. :P

It's not Memphis :P some sadact pointed out that it was actually Nashville, and the picture is old. His hair as of a picture taken last night was completely different. It's still probably him returning though.
