Friggin' awesome show live! Crowd was hot all night. The place erupted when CM Punk came out. I've been going to live shows since 2000 and even seeing Austin, The Rock, Hogan live I've never heard a reaction louder than the one that Punk got last night. He's just huge in Chicago.
Crowd also went crazy for RVD's return video package.
Del Rio got massive heat last night. He's definitely turning heel and Ziggler was a total babyface. It was great. I'm also very happy that Curtis Axel won the IC belt.
Hopefully RVD will try to give a sh*t now he's back in WWE. Clearly didn't care for most of his TNA run.
Would you if you were a big time star and went to TNA? TNA blows it with everyone they get. TNA always amazes me when they get a big star and right away he's treated like just another guy on the roster. Remember when Jeff Hardy came back? Literally for just one segment the announcers hyped it up and then by the end of the night that was it. It was like he was just some regular guy on the roster and that was after coming off that really good run in the WWE.
Kurt Angle was the only guy they got it right with when he came to TNA back in 2006.
I hope some ex-WWE wrestlers were watching the reaction that video package got last night and decide to follow RVD back to the WWE.
Yeah it is. They're taking something serious and turning it into a storyline. I mean I do give them credit for taking it seriously now. I was just talking to my cousin last night about this and how many times back in the Attitude Era a guy like Mick Foley would have had to sit out for real because of how many concussions he probably got from all those chair shots to the head back then.
But yeah they can't now end every match when someone gets hit in the head and turn this into a storyline. Enough already. It worked in the Ziggler match last night because Ziggler really was recovering from a concussion.
