    You ARE aware that this is just a story, right? That they're playing characters? That backstage, Cena and Wyatt are shaking each others hands right now telling each other what a good show they put on?

    Or old WWE merchandise... say one of those plush figures you'd hit to induce sound effects or something.

    Or something just out of left field like a blow-up doll.

    Or hell... a kitchen sink. Because... they find all sort of random shit under the ring... might as well.

    So from facebook posts I was getting the impression this all sucked ass, but you guys seem to have a more positive outlook, so maybe I'll check it out tomorrow.

    I was actually thinking I might have some wrong. Because Cena is Cena so it's hard to bet against him. Evolution because HHH is HHH and it's hard to bet against him. And I also thought Big E might have pulled a win.

    In the early days of TNA, I went to the Impact Zone a couple of times. I handed Brother Ray a posterboard Christian sign that TNA had given me to make it look like fans cared. His opponent (James Storm, maybe?) sold it like it was made of wood. Too bad that didn't make TV.

    Enjoyed watching it on the network. Again no lag/interruptions/problems for me. Really impressed with the network again.

    ER was ok. Nothing really stuck out as impressive as WM30, but still fun. DB vs Kane was probably the highlight along with shield vs evo, and bray vs cena. Little johnny had me rolling :lol  Perfect name for that kid.

    Rollins dive off the upper stairs or whatever was pretty awesome. I was not expecting that. They had a nice outside the ring brawl for that one, as did the DB vs Kane match. Flaming table was pretty sweet ending too. I enjoyed it, not as much as WM30 though.

    Roll on to raw.

    Fun show up to and including Shield/Evolution IMO, but it died for me after that.

    Cena/Wyatt and Kane/Bryan seemed to go on forever, both those types of gimmick matches have long run their course and should only be brought out when they are willing to go the extra mile for them. Making those two shorter and using the time to put a fast paced midcard or tag match in the unused cooldown spot would have done wonders for the second half of the show.

    Paige/Tamina was fun when Paige had the upper hand, but meh when Tamina had it aside from the hurricanrana reversal.

    Lana dedicating the match to Putin was fucking gold. In post-Soviet Russia, wrestlers are for getting managers over.

    LMAO at the pregnancy test Bo package

    Shield/Evolution was match of the night by far. Took the old guys a while to get going, but it caught fire when Reigns was tagged in.

    Good solid fun from the triple threat and IC match. Didn't see the midgets as it looks like all pre-shows are gone for non-US folks until we get Network.

    Anyway, here comes Raw.

    Really. REALLY??

    Keep us informed what they are cocking up each week. We'll let you know when you can dig out your Cena sweat bands, dog tags, etc again.

    Rollins really is the unsung hero of the Shield. What a performer!

    I predict Rollins being the Showstealer in the MITB match at MITB. He'll make us forget about Kofi and Shelton.

    Lets see if:
    1. Ambrose retains (Just because)
    2. Rollins or Reigns win (Create some cracks in the Shield)
    3. Cesaro wins (Won the last battle royal, but would be funny, because I remember a time when Cesaro was US champ, and Barrett was IC champ, but now they're more over then ever.)
    4. Barrett wins (Yup, IC AND US champion!!)
    5. Big E wins (Big E vs. Barrett rematch, belt for belt)

    Curious, who do you like in TN.A? Can't figure out who their Cena is.
