I know people will get offended(and I get it), but I guarantee King signed off on it. I mean this is the same guy who gave the ok to use his mothers death in an angle before, and was the king of doing ungodly things in Memphis to gain heat.


oh, no doubt. I'm sure it probably went through The King, Cole, Vinnie Mac, and probably a parade of people in the locker room.

I'm bothered more by the lazy writing than anything. :wink:

It's the only way they can get people to actually boo punk. Fans don't want to.. so they had to resort to that, and he still got somewhat cheered.

Maddox was in developmental for quite a while. I think Ryback was a bit stiff, but Maddox sold it like death.

Other than the ref issue, I don't understand why they are trying to make Maddox look like the bad guy.

To me he's David going up against Goliath while fulfilling a dream. But then they mock him by bring in an ambulance and a stretcher before the match. On top of that, while he's being carried out on a stretcher, Ryback begins attacking a defenseless person.

Seemed like more of a heel move to me.

Keep in mind I haven't watched Raw the last few weeks, so I don't really know what's going on. I also don't like Ryback.

I am still upset over the fact that Maddox used R-Truth's old theme song.

Maddox gave Ryback a low blow at HITC and then gave a fast count as the ref causing Ryback to lose to Punk and not win the title.

So in kayfaybe at least, Ryback had every reason to want to destroy him.

I think I might be done with wrestling for a while. Maybe it's the three hour Raws, or maybe it's just that I don't care about any storyline at all right now, but it's really boring me.

I end up fast forwarding through the majority of the show. And can someone please tell me why it's a big deal if AJ got with Cena? She lost her job. Just say you did it and move on. Nothing else can happen. Who cares.

I watched very little of it and actually wasn't any worse for doing so. Most of it had to do with the Steelers playing, some of it had to do with the HHOF induction, but last night showed me a lot of how bad the product is right now. That was with even only watching bits and pieces of RAW, maybe 20 minutes tops.

As mentioned upthread, I wasn't offended by the mock heart attack as I was by the lack of effort put into it. The AJ/Cena storyline is terrible. Cena wins LOL. Sheamus wins LOL. The Ryback grunts his way to getting over three words at a time. Punk's rebellious character is all but dead, and I even say that as a fan of his. Orton remains as boring as ever, as does ADR. Ziggler has potential but is being held back for whatever reason. You know it's bad when the best parts of RAW is seeing 3MB.

If the product gets any worse, I'd fully expect them to bring out the Gobbledy Gooker for a special edition RAW around Thanksgiving.

- It is expected that Brad Maddox will be kept off of WWE TV for a while; to sell the beating he took on last night's Raw, at the hands of Ryback.

Maddox is a said to be a "Triple H guy," and is expected to be back on WWE TV in 2013.

I hear you. I DVR Raw so I can fast forward through the matches, angles and interviews I find boring (like the love angle with Cena and AJ, there's nothing there) and I find myself fast forwarding through atleast 70 percent of Raw every week because either it's boring or because WWE shoves things down my throat (Cena) I could care less about. I mean Cena is very predictable, Orton is boring, Alberto Del Rio is very boring, Sheamus is only exciting to watch when he's a heel and Dolph's character seeme to be going nowhere.

Honestly it it wasn't for wrestlers like Danielson, Punk, Miz, Kane and even Sandow I would of gave up on WWE a long time ago. Heck there was a period of years that I didn't watch WWE.

To me the last real good year of wrestling where the product was great, the angles were interestring and there were compelling wrestlers in all promotions was back in 2000 when there was competition.

That's just my opinion of course.

Listened to Colt Cobana on WTF. It was seriously fascinating. I downloaded the second episode of Art of Wrestling (CM Punk). I'll report back. I'm sure everyone is waiting on pins and needles.

Excellent mic exchange between Miz and Ziggler on Main Event. The Miz face turn is in effect http://www.ewrestlingnews.com/news/1126 ... yface-turn

If they keep the Miz with the same arrogance he's gonna be a good face cause he's already got the crowd
