So here are my thoughts on last night’s show. Spoilers abound, obviously.
- I was rather disappointed not to get the half-hour pre-show we’d been promised, and I thought it was a rather late cancellation bearing in mind it had been trailed.
- When they’re given 15 minutes for their dated comedy, DX are dull. Also, Chyna never existed.
- There was nothing that Damien Sandow said that wasn’t completely right. Shawn Michaels admitted it.
- Tout is pointless.
- AJ made an excellent point. Everyone calls her crazy, but she’s not the one indulging a dancing invisible child. “How can you tell he’s dancing?” she demanded of Layla, our face Divas’ champion. Preach it, girlfriend.
- The offspring of Mark Henry and Mae Young. I don’t even.
- Good to learn that yoga is not for manly men like Triple H. Maybe he could point that out to DDP.
- Apparently being the RAW GM stops you from getting married. Perhaps because in WWE’s twisted world a woman can’t have a job and a husband.
- The Rock is entitled to flit in and out as he pleases and still secure a title shot whenever he fancies.
- I’m glad that Miz is back and a champion again, even if it is the Intercontinental Champion.
- WWE never fail to secure really inappropriate and offensive guest stars. Charlie Sheen? Lecturing Daniel Bryan on anger management, good behaviour and treating women properly? If this is setting up a gimmick match at Summerslam, I hope Bryan works really, really stiff and breaks that objectionable tosspot’s face.
- It is OK for Stephanie McMahon to slag off Paul Heyman’s children, but not vice versa. Be a star, kids!
- I wish Lita had beaten Heath Slater without having to lure out APA and the rest of the legends who’ve squashed the One-Man BAAAAND over recent weeks.
- Curt Hawkins and Hunico being chosen to receive dual choke-slams and tombstones from Kane and the Undertaker made me happy. Well, as happy as you can get for jobbers.
- CM Punk may have turned heel; he may not have done. He certainly has a legitimate gripe against his employer again, just as he did last year – as Eve pointed out to him, he may be champion, but Cena remains the company’s lodestar.
- What is definite, though, is that Rock deserved to be clotheslined and GTSed, sold it like a champ, and I for one am very excited about a possible Punk/Rock match-up.
What did you think? Who would you have liked to have seen who didn’t make an appearance (apart from Stone Cold)?
