    Btw, PArt 1 of Lesnar vs HHH> everything the last 2 years.

    I read where Vince McMahon is planning on ending the rivalry between John Cena and CM Punk though, maybe with the match tonight. I think this was the perfect match to end their story but I do understand that ending the story with The Rock is more important to the actual business. I know, I keep on forgetting. Especially after matches like tonight. I wouldn't be surprised if they tried to take the Wrestling out of WWE and make it World Wide Entertainment.

    Any match with Brock Lesnar involves blood. Well, at least when he fought John Cena before and at Extreme Rules. I don't think at SummerSlam 2012 though when he faced against Triple H. That amount of blood is much different than The Rock spitting out a small amount of blood while adding that he has internal bleeding. This is just head bashing that cuts them open good.

    Rock and John Cena helps business for the lead in to mania and mania itself and nothing else.
    But hey, 2 months and a giant buyrate is better than nothing.

    That is how you build a pro wrestling match.

    WWE Releases Video of Michael Cole Trying to Get Interview with Glenn Beck
    By Marc Middleton
    Feb 25, 2013 - 9:41:34 PM

    - WWE issued the following during RAW tonight:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=ycn6GDa4PDk

    GLENN BECK HIDES FROM WWE®

    STAMFORD, Conn., February 25, 2013 – Glenn Beck declined WWE’s invitation to address our fans live on Raw® tonight and then hid from WWE reporters when approached this evening at his studios in Dallas. WWE attempted to get comment from Beck but was unable to gain building access after Beck’s representatives said he was “not in the building,” which clearly couldn’t be the case just prior to his show airing live from the same studio.

    Beck referenced WWE as “stupid wrestling people” in a segment that aired on TheBlaze TV last week, criticizing a recent WWE storyline involving WWE characters World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio™, Jack Swagger™ and Zeb Colter™.

    Similar to other television shows and feature films, WWE is in the entertainment business, creating fictional characters that serve as protagonists or antagonists. To create compelling and relevant content for our audience, it is important to incorporate current events into our storylines.

    WWE is creating a rivalry centered on a topical subject that has varying points of view. This storyline was developed to build the Mexican American character Del Rio into a hero given WWE’s large Latino base, which represents 20 percent of our audience.

    I almost want to say the match shouldn't have gone on as long and featured as much, because if people remember it, the rock/cena match can't live up to it.
    But we got over a month, so im sure people will forget.

    Unrelated to a good match, the prime time players were defeated by a blind guy and a one armed man.

    Not that it's anything that hasn't already been said, but Punk vs. Cena was maybe the best match I've ever seen on TV. I thought for sure WWE would weasel out of a clean finish, so I was pleasantly surprised when they didn't.

    The rest of the show felt storyline-based, which was fine when it was HHH and Brock. And the surprise RKO at the end of Orton vs. Cesaro was great, but I didn't care for how short that match was. I guess Orton has to beat someone, though. Zeb is doing a good job with what he's being given, but the dynamic is all off between ADR and Swagger. I know it's a Tea Party thing, but in my experience, there is no one who hates illegal immigrants more than legal immigrants. The people who have come to America and jumped through all the hoops hate the people who have taken shortcuts to get here more than any "patriot" could hope to muster. ADR got here legit, on a work visa, and I think he should be angrier than Zeb at the things that Zeb is targeting. So although everyone involved is playing their role fairly well, the logic that I'd hope to see isn't really there.

    Random thoughts about last night's RAW:


    Even though it was unintentional, the back of Lesnar's head getting split open and all that blood added to the intensity of that dust-up by about 1000%.

    R-Truth vs. Damien Sandow at WrestleMania? What a waste of Sandow.

    Wade Barrett vs. Sheamus at WrestleMania? Yes please.

    Miz TV segment was a waste of time.

    Orton had twetted over the weekend about how inspiring it was to watch 'Taker back in action, so I was kind of surprised he wasn't there in person for RAW.

    For a moment I was thinking they were leading to a 'Taker vs. The Shield at WrestleMania.

    Cena vs. Punk was a PPV quality match.

    If it is going to be 'Taker vs. Punk at WrestleMania they've already botched it by not having it be streak vs. streak.

    Vince Upset During RAW Main Event, Flair Returning to WWE TV, Another Fandango Vignette
    By Marc Middleton
    Feb 26, 2013 - 8:50:43 AM

    - Below is WWE's latest promo for Fandango. The woman dancing with him may be the one debuting with him on WWE TV this week that we wrote about earlier.



    - Ric Flair is expected back on WWE TV sometime in the next few weeks.

    - Vince McMahon reportedly "blew a gasket" backstage at RAW last night during the CM Punk vs. John Cena main event. Word is that Vince got upset when Punk hit Cena with a piledriver, which is a banned move when done the way Punk did it. Vince was upset with Cena and Punk but because it was them, there will likely be no serious punishment.

    Cena is good as long as he cares about the match. I thought his match last year against the Rock was pretty meh because he seemed annoyed he was going to job to the Rock. I hate it when he gives a smirk here or there when wrestling. It's like breaking the 4th wall.

    I wonder if that thing about Vince is true, since he did do a non tombstoney piledriver on the dude in the main event.

    The match last year was meh because Rock was gasping for breath about 5 minutes in. Never saw a guy so out of shape for such a big match. I think he realized this though and spent a year training
