When Randy Orton had that huge push in late 07 into 08, the best part was seeing Hardy and him feud.

And the CM Punk and Hardy feud was legit as well. He's my favorite superstar ever so if he comes back I'll be more than excited.

You know Vince loves the roided up looking muscle heads. How many has he tried to push as monsters over the years that the fans wouldnt react to at all? (Ezekial Jackson, Mason Ryan etc). He FINALLY found one that fans love...Ryback is getting pushed to the damn moon

Seriously tho WWE underestimates the power of a catchphrase when it comes to getting guys over. Look what "YES!!" and "NO!!" did for Daniel Bryan. What "Excuse Me!" did for Vickie. What "WWWYKI" did for Zack Ryder. What Miz's "Really?" and "I'm the Miz, and I'm AWESOME" did for him. Catchphrases get guys over, period. If Ryback didn't have his Feed Me More chant, he wouldnt be nearly as over. Fans just enjoy it and it's gotten him huge reactions.

In the Attitude era everyone from Rock and Austin all the way down to Godfather and Val Venis had one. Before recently it had been a long time since anyone had a real catchphrase and it's nice to see them coming back.

Do you think John Morrison is the modern day Marty Jannetty?

His former tag team partner the Miz is now a former WWE Champion, and the reigning Intercontinental Champion.

He's still a free agent. I love to see TNA sign him. Jeff Hardy vs. John Morrison will be a good feud.

CM Punk vs. Ryback will be a good match. I expect Punk to carry Ryback in the main event. Lesnar or Henry will probably interferes in this match. WWE is still planning to have Punk vs. The Rock at the Royal Rumble.

Gonna be interesting to see if they let Punk keep the belt until the RR or not. If he does keep it until RR, then he'd break the record of longest WWE championship reign in the WrestleMania era (since Hogan's first reign).

If not, then I can see they'll give the belt to Ryback at HIAC and then have Punk win at Survivor Series.

So I'm thinking they are setting up a Rock vs Cena rematch (for the WWE gold) at WM-29 since it's very likely Rock will win the belt at RR.

As much as I want to see Ryback become a WWE Champion. The Rock vs. CM Punk is my dream match.

I miss the days of WWE where they would actually let their wrestlers wrestle. Back in the day matches were more exciting & it was constant back & forth action.

These days WWE matches feel so for lack of a better word "scripted" obviously the winner is pre determined but there needs to the illusion that it isn't & that anything could happen, which WWE IS LACKING.

Now days all matches follow the same guidline, heel beats up face for majority of the match, face magically recovers hits a few bigs moves & the match is over.

All of their guys have the exact same style which makes every match feel identical. And the guys who have their own unique style such as Brian Danielson & Punk WWE doesn't allow them to showcase it.

Cm Punk isn't lying when he says he's "the best in the world". If they built up a storyline with Daniels & Punk those 2 could put on classic after classic similar to bret hart & HBK back in the day.

WWE Needs to allow their wrestlers to have their own matches, guys like punk & daniels can go into a ring and tear down the house w/o saying a word to eachother throughout the match, they need to allow their wrestlers to do what they do best. WRESTLE.

WWE has a lot of good wrestlers. If you are watching NXT and Superstars these mid carders and bottom feeders are capable of putting up great matches.

That's what I am talking about. He needs to win a secondary title before he became a main eventer.

Just give him the US Championship, and let see if the crowd will like him as a dominant US Champion.

The funny thing is right now WWE has better WRESTLERS than they've ever had. The athletes they got these days are just insane. But they don't have character or the writing they need to thrive like the older guys.

It's funny cuz it's the same with the Divas as far as hotness goes

Can you imagine Kelly Kelly, Kaitlyn, Natalya, Eve, AJ, Rosa etc in the old Attitude days of thongs, bra and panties matches, mudwrestling, random nudity etc? There were hot ones back then but the ones they got now are on a whole nother level...but they have to wrestle in f*ckin shorts

But they never showcase the talent, i don't even know what channel nexus is on, yet i know where to go if i need my Ryback squash match

WWE might have alot of talent, but they must not want to do much with it or we wouldnt keep getting Punk vs Cena & Sheamus vs ADR every month..

Who cares? If you're watching Wrestling to get off on the Diva's then Internet Porn would blow your mind.

Wrestling shouldn't be a place for old men who's wife won't let them watch porn get their jolly's (not directed towards B-Low).

Womens wrestling simply does not draw, they work great as valet's, managers & interviewers but nobody buys a ppv for the kelly kelly match.

However, women like Awesome Kong could potentiall change womens wrestling forever, she can actually wrestle & put on entertaining matches.
