This tag match has potential. I would love to see a series with Daniel Brian and Jericho. I'm thrilled that Y2J is back.

I kind of dig the Barrett/Rotundo feud. Definitely rehashes the Razor/123 Kid vibe.


Kid was somewhat established on tv (as a jobber, sure) before Razor made him. Also, Razor was over in ways that Barrett isn't (yet).

There are a lot of NXT talents that should be in that spot instead of Dallas.

...man, Heyman is so goddamned brilliant on the mic. I love listening to him.

Or Brock comes out and beats the crap out of Vince, setting up the Mania match with HHH.

I kind of like how they put a bow on the Heyman/Shield/Maddox/Punk thing. Had a feeling Lesnar was coming out when Vince kept dragging out the you're fired moment.

It kind of fits though.

I think they're really trying to give Barrett something to carry on his own. Basically, it's his turn to make a young guy look good. What better way to run an underdog story than with the undersized Bo Dallas? I think it fits nicely. Yeah, there may be more deserving, but I think he's more than paid his dues in FCW/NXT to at least deserve a shot to show that he belongs with the big boys. While beating Wade Barrett won't make him, it certainly gives him something to build off of for the future.... which is seemingly hard to do these days given the garbage 'storylines' we've had to watch in recent years.

Maybe it's because I watched the Godfather/Godfather Part II (the only Godfather films, that is) a few weeks ago, but there was something in Heyman during the video when he was talking with Maddox that impressed me. Heyman was despicable because he was eliminating a problem (Maddox) while also convincing Maddox that this was for his own good.

Michael Corleone didn't have a choice except to set up Senator Geary, as a parallel. He wouldn't have, but Geary's decision forced Corlone's hand. (that is, in the mind of Michael.)

WWE ain't Copolla, but Heyman made sense in that segment. On the other side of things, you have Vince McMahon stepping up to Brock Lesnar. That's why Heyman is believable (he's conniving, he's despicable, he's exploitative, and he's a liar), but McMahon is not (Heyman made an ass of himself when put in a place of desperation during this segment, and McMahon just no-sold that Brock was a bad-ass).

The more I think about that, ugh. An elderly man, of an age where he could legally be playing shuffleboard and collecting social security, steps up to Brock Fucking Lesnar. Lame.

Yep. Heck, I've worked for a few of them. Some old guys with money just don't have a firm grasp of shit when it comes to how tough they are, so the "Vince steps up" thing didn't bother me.

I'm thinking 3-on-3 Chamber match with Cena, Ryback, and Sheamus taking on Shield. Rock/Punk II will probably headline the event on its own with no gimmicks needed (who just though Candido?).

The Heyman thing would work as long as he continues to not have any official power.

It's pretty clear by the Vickie Guerrero stuff of the last month that they don't even want to do the GM thing anymore.

So now, assuming it is the plan, how do we get to Punkdertaker? Punk loses again at the PPV, comes out and does a similar promo to tonight where he just says "fuck you, if I'm going to keep getting cheated out of the title, I'll just end the streak?" Undertaker doesn't really strike me as a guy who interferes in matches to set stuff up anymore.

Sorry for "Punkdertaker," by the way. Well, not that sorry.

Confirming the obvious,

The feeling backstage at last night's RAW from Las Vegas was they lost the crowd during the 9pm - 10pm hour as it was a rough hour to watch. The WWE creative team has been burnt out lately as they book The Road to WrestleMania 29.


The most important quarter of the year to WWE is absolutely the best time to be burnt out creatively.

This is one of the few things that actually intrigues me about the next two months. Now that it's been made completely clear that Taker wrestles once a year, not only do you need a set-up for the match, but also a set-up for why he's back in the first place. Now that Punk has lost the title, most of the obvious match set-ups are gone, so... who knows?

Not to beat a dead horse, but I honestly wish Taker would just stay gone. I don't want him trotted out every year as an 'attraction'. Last year's match with HHH was the perfect stopping point... high profile opponent, the end of technically four years of story, and a nice even 20-0. I just don't think I can muster up the energy to give a shit unless they come up with something genius. And, since this is WWE, I'm not holding my breath for that.

If they were going to set up Punk-Taker, they should have had Taker be the one that put Rock through a table in the "blackout" at Royal Rumble, not Shield. Maybe have Shield take credit for his work to give him more reason to be back. Taker's reasoning could be because it's his yard, and he's the measuring stick in this business.... and not the "Best in the World". His message to Rock would be a warning shot. Have Rock/Taker cut a promo or two to dissolve any differences, and move on to their respective 'Mania feuds from there. I'm sure I'm missing some key details of my own fantasy booking, but you can fill in the blanks respectively.

Honestly, if there wasn't such a hard-on for making Rock/Cena 2 for the title, it'd be ridiculously easy. Not to sound too mark-y, either, but Punk/Taker title reign vs. streak is a much better story than 'returning (for, uh, the third time) hero wins title, guy who lost beats 29 other guys, I want a rematch!'. But, you know, Punk won't take the belt on a movie publicity tour, so Fuck that, right?

Totally simple set-up. Punk rants in ring about beating Rock, Cena, everybody. Title reign. Unstoppable. Asks who can stop him, since there's no one left. Lights go out. Bell tolls. Crowd fucking shits. It's the easiest set-up in the world. Taker returns to stop Punk. Worthy opponent. Best in the World, but not Best at WrestleMania. Whatever.

Sure, you have to deal with what happens with Taker and the title after WM, but that's a whole other problem.

The way Punk cut his promo on last night's Raw would help make this Punk/Taker scenario work even without the title, which may be the route they're taking. Remember, HE is granting ROCK a rematch, not the other way around.... ;)

Something not remotely plausible, but a great way to turn Cena heel. Hence why neither will ever happen.
