No your not the only one, and man that Cody guy, dude continues to impress and has a bright future, also has a bad ass villain type gimmick. Reminds me of Dr. Doom.

The up and coming folks (ones that have never held the WWE or world title - Or Divas title) that entertain me:

Dolph Ziggler - Maybe my favorite new guy all around. I've said before his look reminds me a lot of Billy Gunn (probably has to do with him doin the fame asser all the time too). If you listen to the little side comments he makes he's actually hilarious on the mic too. I remember a little before WM he had me dying laughing...when Laycool was attacking Trish Dolph joined in and started getting some cheap shots in on her. When Morrison makes the save and helps Trish you can hear Dolph go "what the hell Morrison! you're not even a girl!"

Cody Rhodes - I liked the Dashing gimmick better but this one works for me too. Great on the mic, just wish he'd wear some damn knee pads. He looks like Peter Pan. Still, he's great in a villain role.

R-Truth - Hated him as a face but as a heel he's entertaining as hell. He' not young at all (almost 40 I think) but he's still in good enough shape to have a looong run ahead of him

AJ Lee - One of the few Divas with a personality AND she can wrestle her ass off. She's got the whole nerd gimmick, her anime/video game sounding theme song, her little skipping thing she does and she's f*ckin adorable. She gets a reaction and you can tell WWE tries so hard to ignore it. She could be a new Lita with an "alternative Diva" look and feel


Ones that are boring as hell to me:

SIN CARA - Holy hell I can't even sit thru this guys matches anymore. People complain about Cena doing 5 moves...Sin Cara does about 5 of the exact same hurricarana in a 3 minute match, that handspring elbow, some dropkicks and the diving crossbody, then wins with one of his stolen finishers from the Lionsault to the Swanton Bomb. Every one of his matches is exactly the same. Add in the fact that he can't speak english and I just hate him being on TV. Oh and that damn lighting (reminds me of another funny Dolph line tho...when he was fighting Sin Cara and lost you can hear him complain "I couldn't even see! Turn some lights on!")

Mason Ryan/Ezekiel Jackson/David Otunga/Every other muscle-head with nothing but power moves

Alberto - He bored me before he even made his debut with all those damn videos

FREAKIN Eve Torres. Most of the Divas are boring but holy hell...why is she in a match every week

Del Rio barely manages to get a reaction when he comes out, the only way he gets Heat is by dissing the fans, dude is boring, but he in not a bad wrestler just think he has been shoved down our throats.

I'm thinking of ordering Bound for Glory. I have a feeling that its going to be a great show, but I'm not sure if I wanna shell out $40 when its going to be on youtube a day or 2 afterwards.

I havent bought a wrestling ppv since...............Starrcade '97.

Coincidentally, that one also had Hogan vs Sting, and was a complete trainwreck.

Philly fans are gonna RIP THE F*CK out of that Hogan/Sting match. These are the old ECW fans who hated Hogan even when he was relevant. The rest of the card might get a decent-good response, but Hogan vs. Sting is gonna get booed out of the building

So I went to the PWG Steen Wolf show while I was in LA. Probably the best wrestling show I've ever seen live. Main Event was Kevin Steen vs El Generico in a ladder match. Generico ended up snapping one of the ladders in half, cut his back up. End saw the Young Bucks (Generation me in TNA) come out and beat the hell out of Steen with steel chairs, which allowed Generico to recover and get the win. Young Bucks then challenge Steen to a Gurilla Warfare match, noting that he won't have a partner because everyone thinks he's an asshole. Lights then go off for 10 seconds or so and when they come back on Super Dragon is standing in the ring (he's been retired since 2008 due to injuries). Dragon clears the ring while the crowd is going apeshit. I reckon the 300 or so people made more noise than most crowds at a WWE event, it was insane.

If any of you guys live in LA I'd definetly recommend you guys go see a show. Next show is on December 10.

Why was she released?

They think Kelly, Eve, Natalya and Beth are enough divas for a division/storyline for many years? I'm sick of their matchs... I want more divas to watch

I'm so damn sick of Eve/Kelly Kelly, espeically Eve. WWE's actually got some good young girls who can actually GO but they waste time on those two. I'm still waitin for my girl AJ to break out.



First of all she's just adorable (entrance video)

and second she can actually WRESTLE and has a personality. This match she had on NXT last year is better than any match Kelly/Eve have put on in their careers
