I figure we might be in for another Cena loss this weekend, as I doubt Brock would agree to come to WWE and job to Cena within in less than a month. I think the plan is have him beat Cena to progress Cena's character arc, then build to a match with Taker at Mania, which has been brewing for a while if you follow the UFC stuff.

I went to a Smackdown in December...on the same day as an MSG houseshow. *facepalm* It was horrible.

Silent Rage was future endeavored at some point:

Andy Leavine, the winner of the 2011 version of Tough Enough, was released some time back by WWE quietly.

This was the same show that turned down Austin Aries and Sara Del Rey. Great job!

Agreed. I'm loving these, but a few more minutes wouldn't hurt at all. It's not like they don't have an incredible treasure trove of hilarity through which they can dig.

So that's 4 matches and a lot of filler.

Great promo by Edge to kick off the show

That was at least a $200 liquor basket.

I guess the show is no longer PG. Heard Jerry saying that Khali was fingering Cody Rhodes.

Had to chuckle at the "CM Drunk" chants.

What role is Eve Torres playing now? I missed most of the first hour as I forgot about the time bump.

EDIT: Exec administrator, got it.

If Brock loses this Sunday, they will be pissing away major money.

Is Kharma hurt or something? She was in the Rumble and hasn't been seen since. That would have been a great spot to bring her back and have her take out the lumberJills to get to the champ.

Oh crap, I think Beth legitimately hurt her ankle.

She admitted a couple of months ago that she lied about having a baby. She miscarried sometime in December and finally fessed up around March. I think the WWE is allowing her time to recuperate from that.

I used to practice saying the alphabet backwards before I left the bar when I young and dumb enough to drive drunk. To this day I can do it in 15 seconds

I'm being reminded of why I rarely watch wrestling anymore. Who the heck greenlit that angle, and why hasn't he been fired yet?

(though CM Punk did a great job of acting drunk)

It thought it was embarrassing for The Funkasaurus to be paired with Santino, but now he's teaming with Hornswaggle? The sad part they'll probably win. Remember when Ziggler was wrestling for the title? Yeah, me neither.

I took it as she had already hurt her ankle and was using this match as a reason to go on the shelf and no longer have the belt.

F4W says it's a work:

Nikki Bella's win was scheduled to happen for several weeks. The ankle injury to Beth Phoenix was storyline. It was a way to get the title off Phoenix so Kharma can get the title without ever beating Phoenix. Or at least that was the plan when Nikki Bella was planned to get the title.

CM should be stripped of the title.

He said S before T and therefore fails the sobriety test.

If anyone else has noticed, most of the Lesnar vignette's tonight featured current TNA talent.

Current talent being killed by Lesnar.

When Dixie signed that contract for TNA wrestlers to be promoted on WWE shows (in exchange for Flair), I think she forgot to add "in a positive, meaningful way for TNA".

Nothing kills a crowd more than a contract signing.

This is so boring, how could they kill Brock so soon?

Edit: forgot job one was to make people hat Lesner so they'll cheer Cena.
