Decent match for a gimmick match. It felt like a big time TV match due to the build in prior weeks. Ryback isn't as terrible as most people say. He's no Crispin Wah, but he's also no Khali.

And Cesaro continues to amaze people around the world.


Late to the party, but I just watched him Neutralize Khali on Main Event.

Other than the Big Show, I think he's might as well call it a day on the "People I can Neutralize to Show How Fucking Crazy Strong I Am" showcase.

Looking at what WWE threw up on YouTube. Nothing really catching my interest outside of seeing how the Kaitlyn-Eve feud is progressing, Punk-Rock, and Fandango.

Not that they matter, but Kaitlyn is pretty awkward in the ring. I think the feud works, tho. Rock-Punk promo: Excellent way to close the show. I know Rock takes the title some time this year—but I think Ryback should be the one to break Punk's streak. When Punk drops the title, it's gonna give a big push to whomever catches the win. Definitely more meaningful if Ryback gets the rub. I don't like the character and think he's boring—but I'd rather see them push new talent than Cena or Rock. It's not like a Del Rio situation where he got the shotgun too soon. If they put Ryback over Punk, it'll be a bit more credible.

Watching that CM Punk and Rock exchange from Raw last night. Punk is so good on the mic. Just so good. As little as I get to watch the show anymore, I always forget how good he really is.

I know it definitely won't happen...but "CM Punk kills all of the superheroes" sounds like a long term plan leading to a possible Austin or Undertaker WM match.

Ryder going off again on Twitter

Last night on Raw, WWE posted a "The World Follows WWE On Twitter" list. The Rock, John Cena, Randy Orton and CM Punk were in the top four spots, while the Miz was in 5th place with 878,011 followers. This upset Zack Ryder, since he has 990,324 followers. Here is what he posted on Twitter last night…

So on #RAW it just showed the most followed superstars in @WWEand they just skipped me? #AREYOUSERIOUSBRO

Can @WWE read? I have 989k twitter followers. @mikethemiz has 879k. #AREYOUSERIOUSBRO #HMMM

The world follows me on twitter too. @WWE just doesn't want you to know. I have 100k followers more than @mikethemiz.pic.twitter.com/J6k3DFx0

Hey @WWE. Whose decision was it to leave me off the "The World Follows WWE On Twitter" list? You can just DM me the answer. I won't tell.

Hey @WWE…#RyderHasMoreFollowersThanMiz is trending worldwide. :) Sorry @mikethemiz.

Well it's not like they can put him on TV even less.

Finally downloading all of the WWE 13 season pass content just in case it goes away when THQ explodes...I've already heard Justin Gabriel's theme 3 times at this menu.

EDIT - the Cesaro pack just popped up when I refreshed the menu.

Cesaro seems pretty faithful to reality though he has his debut look - plain black gear, no jacket, yellow entrance video. Neutralizer is the old style where he would switch hands after getting them into the piledriver position. Signatures are the Very European Uppercut off of an Irish Whip and his Karelin-ish gutwrench suplex from the front position.

Sandow's entrance is pretty fantastic and he has his flip-out Russian Legsweep as a signature but Terminus lacks the floatover. Elbow of Disdain doesn't seem to be in (at least as a signature)

'Twas an excellent promo. He came close to saying without actually saying "You are all sheep who baa for whoever WWE wants you to baa for. You're all marks who spend your money on whoever WWE tells you to spend money on. It's become worse as the years proceed because WWE targets stupid little kids who don't know any better."

I'd like to see him cross that line. He's smart about how he phrases what he says. (Not that WWE would reprimand him.)

And The Rock has become a parody of himself. He's like a brown Hulk Hogan.

In the "This will work out well" department from Mike Johnson @ pwinsider.com:

WWE Hall of Famer Tammy Sytch and independent wrestler Damian Darling have announced they have gotten engaged via their respective Facebook pages.

Darling had taken an order of protection out against Sytch during her first arrest earlier this year during a domestic issue. This led to Sytch being arrested a number of additional times (sometimes several days in a row) before Sytch went to rehab for treatment.

Obviously, they were able to work out their issues. We wish the couple well.

On her Facebook, Sytch wrote that she intends to leave pro wrestling and pursue a chiropractor's degree. She also noted her intentions to sell her WWE Hall of Fame ring. Sytch was the youngest inductee in WWE history when she was inducted in 2011.

I loved Punk throwing in the "boxing with God" line. I really hope he doesn't lose to Rock right away if they're going to go that way with it as I'd rather see their feud last a little longer.

I had problems earlier but eventually got em. Just keep trying, it seems that ever since Christmas Eve, the game's servers have been hammered during peak hours and only time I can download anything from CC is after midnight or early morning (guess all the kiddies got the game for Xmas and clogging up the servers).

Just the other day I was thinking that Ziggler should win the Rumble (who else is there.... Cena? Sheamus?), have a fluke loss/DQ at the end of his Mania match, and then cash in immediately, but the current title picture didn't really make sense for that to happen. I think this followed the discussion here about face Miz, which they almost had to do because of all the media events he's been doing. Miz is a lot like Jericho to me in the regard that he can sort of work as a face, maybe? But the ceilings for face Miz and face Jericho are a lot lower than heel Miz and heel Jericho.

It will help generate buzz, especially with The Rock appearing on Smackdown. It's WrassleMania™ time, so any buzz is good buzz for them.

I got in immediately last night around 10:30 or so Central Time. Cesaro is a legitimate beast, definitely fits in with my play style. I have had trouble getting into Community Creations though ever since I bought the game last Tuesday... if I knew it would be a rehashed issue, I would not have wasted my money buying this year's game.
