for an alternative to WWE tonight, this is a fun match between LuFisto and Kalamity... 2 ladies from Canada. This match is really good. If any of you are skeptical of women's wrestling, take 15 mins to watch this match, and at least recognize that there is other stuff out there than the 2 minute botchfests on raw every week. also, try to ignore the commentary. it's awful.

Just tuned into a stream to see Langston win via countout against Ambrose. Langston could have used a clean win there since the US title doesn't mean much anyways.

in defense of that lift driver, if you don't drive one of those things everyday, you're gonna look like you're drunk-driving for the first few minutes until you get the hang of it. That said, driver definitely should have been prepared considering this is a PPV.

Heyman getting beat down was the selling point to this match, and he's on top of the cage. Just silly.

There was no reason for that match to be in the cell at all.

Well that was a weak payoff, but hopefully Punk can move on now.

There was a story reason. Heyman tried to avoid Punk by going on top. The story reason for Bryan/Orton in the cell is no interference from Big Show. In the PG era, the cell will not have the same brutality as it used to. That's fine with me. I'm a proponent of no blood anyway.

In a related note, I can't wait until they do away with these gimmick PPVs.

I guess I'm just sick of the cell being overused at this point. I know we don't have blood these days, but having a hell in the cell match, or even a regular cage match without just seems silly. Those matches are supposed to be brutal, and bloody. Hence why they should only be used on very special occasions, not all the friggin time when the people who book stuff can't figure out how to end a feud. That HITC with Punk/Ryback felt like a regular match. It could have been a NO DQ match and had all the same stuff happen, and still have the payoff of Punk getting Heyman at the end.

Cesaro is awesome. I hope he swings that stupid fake little bull before the match is over.

Everything about Los Matadores sucks. Every single thing. Primo and Epico deserve better than that awful gimmick.

Oh, I agree with you. The reason for that is the yearly gimmick PPVs. I'd rather them only bust the cell out once every 5 years or so. Gimmick PPVs need to go away. HitC, Money in the Bank, TLC, Elimination Chamber do nothing but devalue the matches.

As for blood, maybe it's because I'm an old fart now, but I cringe every time I see blood in a match, even when watching old matches. All I can think about is all of the health issues it brings into play. Blood, chair shots to the head, all of the "extreme" violence stuff just turns my stomach. It's barbaric and unnecessary.

Cena is not in the main event. I don't know how to react to that.

Chairshots to the head i agree with, but blood if used in the RIGHT instance and only sparingly can add impact. Imagine Hart vs Austin at WM13, and Austin passing out in a pool of his own blood... it's an iconic image. Tully Blanchard vs Magnum TA brutalizing each other inside the cage at Starcade, using a piece of broken chair trying to maim each other. Blood was certainly way overused for a while, but I think it has its place on special occasions.

It's kind of funny. I don't want him to win, but the WHC is looked at as a big piece of nothing right now, that if he carries it.. it at least brings back some prestige to the belt.
