He's pretty good on the mic, but they don't ever let him talk other than comic bits. He's plenty big, and plenty good enough to be one of the top guys in WWE.

I still hate that the WWE killed the Yes Yes Yes almost immediately by muddling it with No No No. Bryan could have and should have slowly turned back into a mega-over face with the Yes Yes Yes goodwill he received from the B.S. mania match he had. Then when he started getting stale they could have dropped the No No No heel turn in... but he doesn't have the look Vince wants so whatevs.

Vince wanted to keep Bryan a heel, thus the No No No. I don't think it's fair to say that he won't be given a good run because he doesn't have the look Vince wants. Punk doesn't have that look either. Hopefully, Ziggler cashes in at Mania, Hell No splits, and we get a Ziggler/Bryan feud.

It's not just look. I hate that it's always "Vince's fault" that the small guys don't get pushes, which is undermined my Punk's historic run. The whole idea of wrestling is to dramatize a fight. I don't think I could beat up Brock Lesnar. Why would I want Bryan to do it?

Personally, I think stuff like that is great. I was in middle school when the nWo was hitting their stride and theyre were guys walking around the halls making the sign instead of slapping 5. When wrestling is good it's contagious. The last time we saw something like this was when Brock Lesnar returned last year. You can't duplicate that moment for anything in the world.

One of the best wrestling "documentaries" I've ever watched, and it was made by fans on YouTube.




Also makes me appreciate just how unfortunate it is that Flair/Hogan at WM8 never happened. Sure, Flair/Savage was a great match, but Flair/Hogan was THE match.

IMO- at Mania, Orton turns on Sheamus/Show and joins The Shield. Sheamus says he was too busy not trusting Big Show to realize he shouldn't trust Orton.

Sheamus feuds with Orton
Show feuds with Reigns?
Ambrose/Rollins go after tag straps

I remember reading somewhere that Orton prefers playing a heel. However, this idea makes too much sense for the writers to run with it.

Even back then Vince was showing glimpses of being a dunce in terms of some of the writing. It's a shame that his opponents for even more incompetent that him. And if he wasn't a billion time richer than Paul Heyman, ECW would probably still be around.

I came across this at Walmart tonight, laughed, took a picture, and put it aside.

I just had a horrible thought. What if this sort of thing is super rare and therefore collectable?

Go back and ask for a discount if it's mismarked. It is Walmart so they may just do that in case you *****.

I hate these throw away Raws before mania. Nothing happens because they don't want anyone to get injured that is going to be in the big matches. Makes for super boring shows.

Sandow makes a comment about Philly's greasy sandwiches and a "stadium that has it's own prison". Crowd reacts by cheering for him. :lol:
