Why does WWE love to spoil things?

All it took was a TLC title match and a Rock appearance lol. Even then the TLC title match probably didn't help, it was all Rocky.

The TLC match greatly benefited from the fact that it started right at the intermission of the football game. Viewership patterns show that not many people returned after the intermission either.

And the final rating, the highest since August... 3.14

Raw is finally back in the 3's, DAT ROCKY.

I'm on the fence about whether or not to attend Royal Rumble. I know I'd love to scratch that one off the proverbial bucket list. But hotel/flight costs are making me apprehensive. There's a $10 fan fest on that Saturday. Has anybody attended those before and is it worth my time? Debating flying in Sunday morning and forgoing hotel.

If Generico is in the Royal Rumble and he comes out the his Ole song, I'm marking out.
Kevin Steen could never be Kevin Steen in WWE though and I don't just mean his name.

I doubt Generico would get any further than a feud with Santino and playing dress ups with Hornswaggle or something either.

I've just read El Generico was signed. Can't wait! I can't imagine he'll be using his top rope brain buster as was already mentioned or the turnbuckle exploder.

I could see a number of those moves being, uh, "discouraged" by WWE brass.

Sick moveset. I love some of the reactions of the refs at some of his moves.

Hopefully he gets to keep his gimmick and doesn't come out as something stupid like Sheamus's Canadian cousin. The good thing for him is the kids will probably eat his character up if only because he has a mask on.

Funny how a page back this thread was discussing steroids and guys being big etc and then in comes little El Generico.

But yeah his moveset is going to get chopped down, he isn't a guy who just throws in spots though, he already does a good job of working a more "WWE style" "storytelling" type match so he should go well in that regard.

Certainly none of the top five. Brainbusters of any sort aren't going to fly in the WWE but I think the suicide dive tornado DDT on the outside will be used as well as most of the high-flying moonsault maneuvers. It would be nice to see those moves executed properly rather than having to see Botch Cara give it a go.

Funnily enough, I think he and Sin Cara could put on some exciting matches together. I've said plenty of times that I think Sin Cara's botches, while being his fault entirely, can come as a result of not having someone who can work his style, as well as potential language barrier.

I believe that he's gotten noticeably better over the last little while though, probably his getting comfortable with the WWE style.

I could totally see him doing basically all those moonsault moves, not so much the brainbusters, the risk of the head injury is too much for WWE. That Blue Thunder could work, it's basically just one form of a sit-down powerbomb.

Agreed. I think the pacing of everything might have thrown him off too. Most guys in the WWE work a slower speed, even during quick spots.

There are many guys I think Generico would look really good in the ring with, and Sin Cara is certainly on the list.

was not overly impressed with RAW...thought Rock was average at best on the mic...at least it seems punk has dropped his "give me respect" schtick...so that makes me happier....i'm sure it will pick up as we go on...just not feeling it yet though

Rock/Punk to close the show apparently did a 3.7, the highest segment rating since Show/Cena in July.

El Generico, huh?

Toss him over with Mysterio and Sin Cara to have a little stable of luchadores...

Let them get a grudge going with the Shield.

I don't know how El Generico hasn't given someone a serious injury with his moveset. Every move looks like a botch.

- WWE is now behind Alberto Del Rio as their new Latin babyface. Rey Mysterio currently has two Wellness Policy strikes against him and Sin Cara has been considered a total failure. Del Rio is expected to stay babyface for some time as they continue to build him up in the new role. The planned match between Rey Mysterio and Sin Cara at WrestleMania 29 may be off.

and i want him to win aswell, but hopefully love Del Rio can deliver as champ.

would love a new LWO angle with him and if they have nothing to do with rey and sin cara. epico, hunico, rosa. maybe too.
