His first heel run (where he coined Austin 3:16 and turned face in his feud against Bret) was his good heel run. The second one was an absolute mess.

The Jake Roberts/Bret Hart phase.

My WWE Thoughts:
-What a slap in the face with Cena Retaining and even a bigger slap when you tease a match with HHH or an Orton rematch. Only to make it Booker vs Cena???2 guys most people could care less about.
-I loved Orton kicking Cena's dad. Hell I wish Cena whole extensive family was there to get the Orton treatment. Hilarious.
-Did anyone else think that Rey looked retarded with that silver shit all over him. He also looked out of shape.
-Kennedy/Hardy have a great Chemistry with each other that is very rare in the business but that fat piece of shit Umanga interfered???WTH
-The Carlito/HHH/Vince segment was rather entertaining. I did not think Carlito would really spit in HHH's face. This is feud we have never seen before.
-WTF was Shelton thinking dying his hair blond. Maybe he's doing a Sisqo/Thong Song gimmick.
-Glad to see Cryme Tyme on Raw each week. Give them their title shot they earned many months ago.
-Where the hell is Super Crazy remember when he was getting a push on Raw

Overall a pretty blah show. The WGTT & Davari / Kendrick, London, & Rhodes match could have been great if Rhodes didn't get in the ring and it went more then 2 minutes.
I got a kick out of Vince telling coach that Kennedy is a good guy but he walks kinda funny.
All the McMahons next week?

I'm not even going to comment on the mess that is TNA

I really wish they would have built on Umaga destroying Foley on one Raw before Vengeance. Have a hardcore style fued between them with Umaga going over.

Instead, we get a face turn, then a heel turn all in the same month.

They were trying for a Silver Surfer look, but it seems to have failed completely. As someone else said, he looked more like the Tin Man from a community players production of Wizard of Oz.

I think the WWE is trying to make Umaga one of those characters that is neither heel nor face, he just kills everybody cause "he doesn't know any better"

I don't know why I'm surprised, but after Punk loses his eleventy millionth title match at SummerSlam, the NEXT night he's the #1 contender again? Another 4 week build up to a title shot? This makes no fucking sense. Morrison tore him apart in his opening promo and it all made sense, shouldn't the hell not be the sensical one here? That whole ECW show was f'd up more than usual.

I'm just wondering how many of us will choose Punk in the next Pick 'em contest in hopes that this is the PPV where WWE realizes that the only person that likes the Morrison character is the guy doing the booking.

ECW only has two decent wrestlers now anyway.

I don't think Morrison is that bad. From what I've seen, his matches have been enjoyable.

I don't have a problem with his wrestling, it's the "Shaman of sexy" character that I can't stand.

Morrison is my fav right now. Great combo of wrestling ability and character. He ripped Punk hard in that promo. I would like to see someone else as #1 contender though.

The problem is, ECW has no one else. The only other person they could give it too is Big V.

Since it is just going to be between those too, they need to let Punk win, then start trading titles with Morrison.

The Smackdown main event for Unforgiven will be
Spoiler:
Rey Mysterio v. the Great Khali for the title. Great, apparently they're going to give the belt back to chubby Rey.

I agree with the people who said that Cena need a run as a heel. The Rock started off as a ‘good-guy’ but it didn’t go over well with the fans & once the WWE (F’) turned him into a heel, he became huge.

Both of Austin’s run as a heel were good in my opinion. I loved the ‘Screw The Rock & become crazy & hug McMahon’ heel turn. The stuff when Angle was a heel with him was cool.
