I hope they bring back the Undisputed Belt.

By the sounds of the title name they're adopting, the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, I think they may just use the Heavyweight title belt. It's certainly more iconic than the current WWE belt design.

I'm not exactly in awe of what happened at TLC, but it was always going to be a setup for a more major PPV event. I did kinda hope for a twist that involved Triple H getting back in the ring, but they can't give the 'Undisputed' title to someone who only wrestles 2-3 times a year, even if it is HHH.

Wonder what they'll do with Daniel Bryan? It's ridiculous (I don't mean that in a bad way whatsoever) how over he is with the WWE crowd right now. I know WWE is really pushing the whole big guy thing, and we're likely to see Roman Reigns and Big E Langston get pushed into main event players in the future (I like them both, Reigns especially), but they'd be shooting themselves in the foot if they don't bring DB back to main event status.

Randy Orton won the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. The Winged Eagle Belt ( New Generation Era), and the Attitude belt were the best belt designs of all time.

Haven't watched anything since Danielson got buried by HHH...so he's still over as hell, and WWE goes with Cena vs. Orton?

Well that sucks. I'm a pretty huge Jarrett mark, and for my money he was in the 2nd and 3rd best feuds in TNA history (vs Angle and vs Raven). Hopefully he'll buy TNA or start a new company with his pops.

JJ still owns a part of TNA though, so I don't think he's disappeared completely.

Meh depends how they use him If he gets thrown in to the main event which he most likely will then it will annoy me when guys like dbry get buried and guys like ziggler can barely make the preshow.

I don't know how legit these numbers are, they're from wrestleview.com, but these are the suppose ppv buy numbers for this year.

Quote:
Royal Rumble (1/27): 579,000 worldwide (364,000 domestic)
Elimination Chamber (2/17): 241,000 worldwide (181,000 domestic)
Wrestlemania 29 (4/1): 1,104,000 worldwide (662,000 domestic)
Extreme Rules (5/19): 245,000 worldwide (137,000 domestic)
Payback (6/16): 198,000 worldwide (108,000 domestic)
Money in the Bank (7/14): 199,000 worldwide (151,000 domestic)
Summerslam (8/18): 296,000 worldwide (185,000 domestic)
Night of Champions (9/15): 175,000 worldwide (92,000 domestic)

If they're true, Summerslam did the third best. WWE is full of shit and ran by self-ego strokers.

I know SS' buys are lower compare to last year, but all the numbers are. Why do we continue to support this shit?

Summersland is one of the big originals though, they always expect it to do higher than an average PPV.

Batista was a great heel in his recent run in the WWE. He also had some success outside of the WWE.

Bryan was booked as a mid carder before SS... It's not fair that they said he failed just because of the SS buyrate.
