First of all I can't believe they are doing another lame ass diva search...if I want tits I will watch porn.

As far as Hogan goes...are you guys sure he is actually gonna wrestle...I don't think he really can...he can't do the leg drop anymore cause of the hip replacement surgery...thats why he just made a limited appearance. The appeal of Hogan is pure nostalga...and when he came out at Wrestlemania it was like I was 5 again...it was really cool...but it was sad to see him so hindered in the ring.

Anywho...I wish the younger more talented guys would get a push...but that ain't going to happen...hell...I am still shocked that Benoit got the belt last year and held it for so long...I doubt we will ever see him with that title again.

Thanks Vince.

Ah, that's why Hogan didn't do the legdrop... seemed kind of odd...

And with Cena and Batista holding the belts, that's got to be one of the youngest duos to hold the belts in some time. Benoit ain't no spring chicken! With them, Orton, and the good job they've done in raising Shelton Benjamin from tag-team partner to contender, I think they're doing a better than usual job in elevating younger talent.

Yeah...its also why he was super slow...limping...and much heavier than usual.

Granted he is old...but he is usually in better shape.

Isn't Batista like 36 or something?

So long Molly.....

Its a damn shame that Molly or other wrestlers get cut or ask for a release because they know theres nothing there for them. I think alot of the cuts were so they could free up some money for this stupid divas contest.You figure one will win the $250,000 and they'll hire 4 or 5 of the runners up just for the hell of it.

Molly probably just got the hell out of there after having to put Christy over TWICE and realized the only time she'd get any tv time is when they want her to put over one of these contest winners.

Yeah, Molly having to job to Hemme was crap and with Molly's departure it is sure to set up the jobbing to Victoria. That will piss me off to no ends. It's really bad for the real Diva's as TNA doesn't really have a women's division yet. So these gals have no where to go.

I like where the storyline with Kane and Lita stalking Trish. I can see this being the reason Trish will lose the Women's title to Hemme within the month or at least by the next PPV.

Whoa! I actually am two paragraphs in before I start ragging on Trips. The only thing worse than having to see Molly job to Hemme and HBK job to Davari was Hurracane and Rosey jobing to Trips. As he is setting his sights on outpacing the great Ric Flair in number of championships held, he is trying to out-badass SCSA. The only thing I can hope for is that Edge puts his sights on Stephanie soon. At best Trips is upper mid-card talent. At worst he is a politically powered egomaniac who will run all storylines into the ground.

Finally, to the mic-challenged Shelton Benjamin: You had the best line of the night and maybe of your career when you said to Jericho, "My fist will have more hits than any Fozzy cd."

"Mic-challenged"? You, my friend, are being too kind. Whenever Benjamin opened his mouth during that segment, I cringed. He's GREAT in the ring, just keep him away from the mic from now on.

A year ago, the WWE had the best women's division I have ever seen. Okay, the roster was less than ten, but all were very good and improving every day. Look at Trish or Gail Kim. They were both godawful when they started, but thanks to Fit Finlay, they worked their way up.
Now the whole division is Trish, Victoria, an always-injured Lita, and Christy. Plus a whole lot of faceless pairs of tits.

Speaking of diva search, whatever happened to Jeff Garcia's grazy girlfriend, the runner-up? I remember people thinking she was a plant and a shoe-in to win it since she was already pretty well-known, but it seems like she's the only one of the contestants that wasn't signed...

Molly leaving has left me with no interest at all in the women's division. She was the only female wrestler they had that I would actually care about seeing wrestle since she actually could. Added to that the respect I had for her refusing to go all slutty and "enhanced" as Vince had requested, and she gets a big in my book.

Plus, didn't she turn down the Playboy gig? She probably saw which way her career was headed.

She was working for a while and was on Taboo Tuesday in October.



I wonder if this had anything to do with her not working.

"The Damage Done" is an accurate title for this Raw. I just read that Triple H injured his neck at the show. Not sure the extent of the injury though, but when I was watching Raw something did look a bit wrong with him later in the night.

The only way anyone would be more popular than Batista is if someone injured Triple H and took him out for some months

He wasn't on RAW last week. Perhaps next week he will drop by to accept HBK's offer to be his partner.

As reported, Triple H suffered a neck injury on Monday’s RAW after Rosey landed on him with a hip bump. The injury was so serious that the Game collapsed backstage. This also prompted Stephanie McMahon to cancel her traveling plans to Chicago’s SmackDown tapings and a trip to OVW today.

At this point it is believed that the injury was a just a stinger and not serious enough to sideline Triple H or cancel his in-ring time. As of this report, he is still expected to wrestle on Monday night’s Madison Square Garden show.

Good to hear!

So Rosie became the most popular wrestler on Raw now?

Or, more likely, the next to get released?

I am glad that Trips isn't hurt, though. Say what you will about him, but with all the stuff wrestlers go through, I wouldn't wish an injury on any of them.

PWTorch had this to say about Molly:

Molly Holly was the next recognizable star that lost her job but the circumstances surrounding her departure are still foggy. She either asked for or was granted her release or John Laurenaitaus deemed her expendable for not showing ass, literally. Whereas Matt’s situation has played out over a month’s timeframe, Molly’s is relatively new and details will surely leak out. Until then any and all judgment should be withheld.

But between you, me and anyone else reading, she never fit the WWE mold of T&A women wrestlers. Molly was the odd woman out in just about every aspect of the women’s division. She does not have the typical stripper appeal of the WWE women’s division. She also did not subject herself to the lurid photo shoots and bare assed segments that every other WWE women’s wrestlers have submitted themselves. Therefore, Molly was expendable. Remember, she was also ridiculed for not wearing a thong in an angle with her and Trish. This was rather telling at the time and only confirms some suspicions.
If the WWE had had more sense to focus on women's wrestling rather than constant T&A fests, she would still have a job. Big loss for them, IMO.
