I like the current Miz. I think he's improving as a wrestler.

I'm honestly amazed that Bryan hasn't been turned back face yet with how over his Yes chants have gotten
ziggler is a face?

His best gimmick is still Kerwin White.

He is. I really don't like how they keep making it look like Zigglers is going to cash it in every week and then something goes wrong.

THis is the first smackdown I've watched in forever. They actually get to put on long matches. This is awesome. Sandow is a beast.

They always have, since the Eddie Guerrero and Brock Lesnar days. I too haven't watched it in ages. Sucks that it's always on Fridays.

The Brand extension thing really ruined my interest of the WWE. I just don't have time to watch it regularly and keep up with the angles anymore. But I do try to read up on wrestlers and storylines.

Yeah smackdown on Fridays is brutal I definitely lost interest when that happened. Although after tonight I may have to start to PVR smackdown. Raw is awesome and all but I am getting sick of the 5 minutes matches on Raw. I like you don't have a lot of time so i usually either Pvr raw or just read the results.

Top overall talents in WWE history? Ring skills, charisma, mic skills, charisma.

Macho Man
Flair
Eddie Guerrero
Stone Cold

Agreed? Doesn't matter, I'm right.

My list of top five who had it all.

Macho Man (can't think of any negative thing to say Savage)
Stone Cold (sucks that his neck injury limited his in-ring ability but he still was able to put on many classic matches. )
Shawn Michaels (he's a a--hole but other than that, he's awesome)
Chris Jericho (was never a full-time main eventer)
Kurt Angle (was push too early)

CM Punk needs to use his old theme. He's now a heel.

His character won't suffer by just the theme.


CM punk looks like a different wrestler right now. In TNA he was one of the members of Raven's stable.
