You know, after Cena basically forced Vince to invite Bret back to RAW, you'd think he'd give the dude a hand when he's getting the crap kicked out of him.
It actually kind of bums me out seeing Bret out there, being all sorts of old, feuding with an all sorts of old Vince. They have great young talent and yet we're getting something we all wanted to see in 1997. Watching Bret trying to sell Batista's punches was incredibly depressing. I don't want to remember Bret like this.
I was excited for Bret to return but in retrospect, once was enough. There's no need for this to go on until March. The crowd was incredibly flat for that last segment. It's clear that the new fans really have no idea who Bret is (or, I guess I should say was).
I know it's inevitable that he gets in the ring at Mania, but that's the last thing I want to see. Who wants to see the Excellence of Execution have to resort to nothing but punches and maybe a few kicks. (Basically, a Big Show match) Maybe instead of watching Bret/Cena v. Vince/Batista, I'll watch Bret win the Intercontinental belt from Mr. Perfect or the Bret v. Shawn Michaels first ever WWF ladder match.
Also, completely unrelated, I'm obsessed with this guy's celebrity photo album. http://www.markfauser.com/celebrity/
