They should put ziggler in a fued with sheamus or HHH. Ziggler seemed like he was on the right path. With another dominant heel in barret coming back zigglers not going to have much to do unless they turn him face.

My cousin is ordering TNA Slammiversary tomorrow night.

I've never lost interest like this after WrestleMania season but wrestling has just gotten awful. They at least kept it somewhat entertaining through Extreme Rules. But since then it's like they won't acknowledge Cena losing to The Rock in the "most important" match of his career. We're back to Cena pre-WrestleMania mode now with Cena making lame jokes and trying to be funny. No character development with him at all.

I ordered Slammiversary and it was a great show. This should shut up the TNA bashers until at least Impact Wrestling on Thursday. The show looked like a legit sell out of 5,000+ people. The matches were fantastic. There was very little silly backstage skits. It was straight up wrestling. Aries vs. Joe, Sting vs. Roode, Joseph Parks/Abyss vs. Bully Ray, Kaz & Daniels vs. AJ Styles & Kurt Angle were all good matches.

Cena is beyond awful. That one promo he cut with Laurenitis a few weeks ago where all he did was say "lah-oser" about 10 times was cringe worthy.

At least they're building the feud pretty nicely with Punk, Bryan, AJ, and Kane.

What's everyones opinion on Ryback? He's starting to get a great reaction every show now. I expect them to give him his first real challenge at No Way Out.

His moves are great. And he has some great spots full of power.

He is a good talent. Finally getting his big break. Wouldnt be surprised if he won the money in the bank. Vince is really high on him as well.

how many times did 3h hafta say its a clean break.

wwe should set this up for triple nose to sponsor younger dude like barrett as his weapon against lesnar. strong push long term story keeps him hot without lesnar on tv. play it right it goes like another money in the bank

wwe probably puts hunter on tv in a boring feud with lesnar. its like a story ive never seen in the last 10 months, 3 piece suit hunter being shelved when monster heel like kevin nash sends him to the hospital. he returns weeks later with the water bottle and a sledgehammer. OMG THE CEREBRAL ASSASSIN IS BACK.

Its weird. WWE marks generally hate Goldberg, but every big, strong guy that comes down the pike has been compared to him: Brock Lesnar, Bautista, Nathan Jones, now this Ryback guy (did I miss any?) None have been as good as the original.

Goldberg: the REAL "Great One".

The last time he was in WWE he was very out-of-shape. Now he is back at 57 years old wrestling a decent match plus great cheer from a mark crowd last night. So, it's all good!!

Oh, and his son wrestling under the name Jake Carter is in FCW right now, so there is a connection.

WWE marks generally hate anything WCW related. Hell, WWE even now still go out of their way to make everything WCW did look like a joke. Just watch that "Are you Serious?" YouTube show. They pretty much spend the entire show dissing WCW, even when the WWE has done just as many stupid gimmicks and ideas.

This is fact. WCW got pretty bad in the last 2 years, but no promotion had stupider gimmicks than WWE in the early/mid 90's...

No kidding, WCW had some really stupid stuff at the end. I wanted to punch whoever came up with making Mike Awesome the Fat Chick Thriller and That 70's guy and then gave him his own talk show segment. But yea, early 90's WWF was like watching some retarded cartoon show. Minitour, Max Moon, Bastion Booger, Isaac Yankem etc, even the Undertaker was a cartoonish idea back then.

When he came back last time he looked terrible. It's amazing that 6 years later he returns and looks that good for someone his size. If he dropped about 30-50 more pounds he could probably wrestle part time.

It was kind of weird seeing Vader back. I was saying how the TNA PPV on Sunday reminded me of an old school WCW PPV especially Bobby Roode vs. Sting. When Roode came out wearing the robe with the title belt around it I immediately thought of Stunning Steve Austin/Ravishing Rick Rude. Bobby Roode is that good too and it was only fitting that he was wrestling Sting. It got me thinking back to Sting vs. Rude matches and Sting vs. Vader matches and I was talking to my uncle while we were watching Slammiversary about how awesome Vader was and then he shows up on RAW last night.
