Brad Maddox is more entertaining than Cole or Lawler.
Whoa now, let's not go nuts.

I can't STAND Maddox, and I lived through Heel Cole and Puppies Lawler.

Maddox is insufferably annoying in every way.

Maddox is awesome. Not being sarcastic one bit. Has his ******* character down pat and has this charisma to him. He's awesome.

WWE is now doing away with separate Raw and Smackdown house shows. The new set up would likely have John Cena headline one tour and CM Punk headline the other.

Now, they REALLY can get rid of the World title and unify the two top titles.

- There was a lot of backstage talk about Monday's RAW this week. It was acknowledged that the promos by CM Punk, Paul Heyman and The Rock were all very good to build up the Royal Rumble but besides that, the feeling was that the show sucked. As noted, lots of people were talking about how bad John Cena's promo was.

- The current storyline where The Miz is being pushed as the "next Ric Flair" was originally earmarked for Dolph Ziggler. With Ziggler, the idea was going to be more of Flair being his manager but Ziggler was going to be given the Figure Four and doing the same gimmick Miz is doing as a babyface.

Regarding turning Ziggler babyface, it looks like those plans have been put on hold for the time being.

It really would be nice to see every wrestler going after ONE title. It would make sense and make a Unified Championship more prestigious.

With no brand extension, they gotta unite the titles, I agree. Would give more prestige to the WWE title. They should also unite the IC and US belts in order to create a trully prestigious mid-card belt. Maybe bring back a cruiserweight belt and continue to put emphasis on the tag titles.

The E must make its titles relevant againt.

As PWMania.com previously reported, WWE has offered Brock Lesnar another 1 year contract – believed to be similar to the current deal that expires at WrestleMania 29 in the sense that it’s for few dates and several million dollars.

The big opponents being discussed for Lesnar in 2013 are CM Punk and Randy Orton. Lesnar vs. Orton had been discussed for 2012 but plans changed.

Turn Punk face again. I haven't been invested in his heel run since the recent program with Rock.

CM Punk as a face was one of the most boring things in WWE. He went from dropping pipebombs to make jokes like Cena would and it was terrible imo

I strongly disagree, I enjoyed his feuds with Triple H, Johnny Ace, and Bryan much more than anything he did between Raw 1000 and TLC. The Jericho feud was the only one I didn't enjoy, mostly because of the "alcoholic father" angle.

I strongly agree with AfroThunder. Jericho thing was a huge let down, should have been much better.
Part of it is also that when he turned heel he became a coward heel and he should have been booked stronger.

He got boring when he changed from being a tweener to a full-on face. He was red-hot during the Summer of 2011 and then when he gradually just turned full-on face, it got a little boring. Not saying he needed to be the Anti-Hero like Austin, but tweeners are so much more intersting as characters to me. You know what a babyface or a heel is going to do, but tweeners are so much more unpredictable that they make storylines a little more interesting.

If somehow...someway Punk could hold the title THROUGH Wrestlemania, his post-WM promo would be amazing. Bring out Lesnar and boom. There you go.

Punk has certainly delivered some excellent promos and his ring work is just as good as ever, but I just haven't been invested in any of his feuds at all. That being said, the writing for most of them has been pretty half-assed.

I like smart-ass/confrontational Punk much more than arrogant/condescending Punk.

It depends. His current incarnation of the arrogant jerk is okay, but his SES Savior character was just fantastic.

Speaking of Punk...

Coyotes backup (starting tonight) Jason LaBarbera knows what's up.



He's a big time wrestling fan and a lot of his masks have had images of other guys like Bret Hart, HBK, and Undertaker.
