So it's the entire WWE against Bryan?

This Bryan/Corporate feud could be good.

I kept waiting for Cena to come make the save and it never happened. What a great Raw. Tons of respect for Cena for working through that injury but I'm looking forward to a Cena-less WWE for a while. He and his character desperately need a break.

WWE is looking good. Bryan is the top face, Punk is right there behind him continuing the feud with Heyman with an amazing promo, the corporation is back. I'm in.

I'd give that Raw a solid B +

I keep hoping that they would do more with him.

Great raw to followup Summer Slam.

As long as they follow through and give Bryan some comeuppance in this feud at the end and don't have him lose every single match they are gonna make him an even bigger star than he is right now. This really has the chance to cement his legacy. I just pray they don't screw it up. They could probably stretch this the whole way to WM if they do it right.

Also Punk is awesome. That whole segment just rules.

Good wrestling on the show too for the most part.

I also agree on Barrett, I've been singing his praises since NXT. They jerk him around though for whatever reason. He's a good wrestler though, with a good moveset.

What impressed me about Barrett the most was after NXT was over he showed no sign of being a new guy. He was able to be a top card heel right away, and was able to do it convincingly.

Even though I agree but being a heel is 10x easier than being a baby face. It can be really tough to win a crowd over these days like a DBry.

ok... this AIW show was worth the wait to re-download. This promotion has really stepped up its game this year. As it stands, 2 of my 5 favorite matches of the year have been from the last couple AIW shows. my list is pretty indy skewed, though.

5. Louis Lyndon v. Tadarius Thomas -AIW JLIT Night 1
4. CM Punk v. Brock Lesnar -WWE Summerslam
3. AR Fox & Samuray Del Rey v. The Young Bucks -PWG Is Your Body Ready
2. Michael Elgin v. Josh Alexander -AIW Absolution VIII
1. The Colony v. The Devastation Corporation -Chikara Aniversario: Never Compromise

also, I need to watch more Pro Wrestling Guerrila. EVERY show is like an indy supercard.

I thought there was a chance that you might have been joking and pulled this from another site. Nah, it's legit.

If you have hulu plus, make sure you watch this week's nxt. The Sami Zayn v Antonio Cesaro 2 out of 3 falls match is unbelievable. Way too good for nxt. Sami Zayn should be on Raw real soon.

If you don't have huluplus, sign up for a free trial if only for this match.

Interesting that they know about that Dolphin guy on Reddit. I know Summerslam results were a lot harder for him to get.

Personally, spoiling the results for people just because you can doesn't make any sense

I find the Dolphin guy's rationale for spoiling the results shallow and pedantic as well.

HHH has a good mind and history of the business. He has a history of liking to bury people, but I think overall he would be good for the company in the long run in an executive off air role after Vinnie Mac finally decides to quit or die in the ring whichever comes first.

I've not really followed for a decade before this year. I'm not disputing the burying allegations, but what are the examples of people HHH has buried?

His reasoning is complete bs. He's doing it because he can and craves attention. Point being: I didn't see any spoilers before he started posted and wouldn't see any more should he stop posting.

Not sure if this has been discussed in here or not, but did anyone else hear the rumor that Royal Rumble is going to be at CEC? ROH just scheduled a show here at Palumbo that same weekend as Rumble, so that leads me to believe it may be true as they typically follow around the major WWE PPVs.

I wouldn't be buying tickets from a site like that until its confirmed. It hasn't been confirmed yet, and I doubt it would before Survivor Series.
