    Those were also taped PPVs. I'm not saying that this means they'll magically double what they were doing (although I'd love to see their numbers bump way up), but ROH has never, ever been available...

    Point being - if people aren't watching Smackdown for any of the reasons you've stated, Sheamus vs. Batista was a good enough match to make sure to watch. And Batista having a good singles match...

    I enjoyed the Sheamus vs. Batista match on Smackdown this week. It's probably the best Batista's looked on his own so far. For a big guy vs. big guy match, really well done.

    The other thing that leans in ROH's favor is that they tend to over-deliver on their big matches. If they promise, for example, El Generico vs. Kevin Steen in a ladder match, it's going to be a war....

    Me too. Sometimes I'll read the list of matches ahead of time, but I started enjoying Smackdown (and Impact) a lot more if I approached it fresh.



    There's often good matches on Smackdown, but...

    I'd like to see numbers before declaring PPVs dead, because there's still money to be made even on the decline of something. And profits are never out of style, regardless of how they're gained. ...

    It's funny, I listened to Steve Austin's podcast with Paul Heyman yesterday, and Heyman had something interesting to say about ECW going out of business. Essentially, their PPV distributor decided...

    I've always liked him. He does a lot more than a guy his size has to in order to get by.



    Filler's a rough way of putting it. Kane's in the same situation, Jericho frequently was in that...

    I like this move for ROH. There's a couple of things that I like in particular - $25 isn't a crazy price, and they're going to be broadcasting in HD. I hope that means that their TV tapings will...

    I had read somewhere that, even though these are "multi-year deals," there are yearly options for both sides. So while the contracts COULD last for a few years, neither side is really locked down...

    Literally, the only time I wouldn't be irritated at that chant is if Magnum TA got in the ring for Raw Monday, and put on a passable match. It's fair if someone's come back from a huge injury that...

    That chant is pretty offensive, actually. RVD may not be 25 yrs old, but he's well within the age range of active wrestlers. I don't expect him to be as crazy as he used to be, but I expect him to...

    I generally wouldn't order a PPV - I've attended them whenever they're in the area, and I did order Money in the Bank 2011, but I'd usually just wait until the DVD was available. But I'm definitely...

    I think at least one component of the Network is an attempt to get people who'd watch streams to actually pony up and pay for events. The network is reasonably priced enough, and if you're savvy...

    That would be a great way for the Authority to get back at Ambrose. He's got a belt, so he's a target. It could even help someone like Sandow, if he came out sixth or something and managed to beat...

    When I saw the brackets, I was hoping for Ziggler vs. Cesaro as the final, but I guess Wade Barrett had some bad news for me.

    But I like when WWE does this - picking a secondary title and devoting...

    I'd say that Orton's pretty underrated right now. Yeah, the booking's been iffy, but he's been doing nothing but making people shine for the last year, which is sort what a heel champ is supposed to...

    He's really something. I hope Brock got him a sweet deal, but Heyman earns every penny he's getting paid.



    Modern era, yeah, I think so. The only other recent manager who's managed to...

    This time he just had white tights with green trim - nothing themed, but he looked sharp. They did show a little girl in the crowd wearing a Volador Captain America mask, and there seemed to be a...

    I still can't figure out which CMLL show I'm getting, but last week's had a nifty Volador vs. Mascara Dorada match for some title. It was pretty good - not as good as Volador vs. Sombra, but still...

    I have no idea where her politics lie, but she's a scumbag. Basically, any time there's a sensational murder/abduction case (read: hot blondes involved), she rides it like a dogsled.
