While I agree his character has been revived to a certain extent, I dont think it has or will reach the heights at MITB 2011.

Agreed. He, and the WWE peaked at MITB 2011, and they've been rolling up and down with interest and product quality since Punk returned to action about a month too soon.

Damien Sandow getting assaulted by Kane and Daniel Bryan with chairs, has to be one of the best wrestling moments of the year, for me.

Not to mention that before Heyman's introduction, he was even less interesting as a character. Also, for someone who for almost a year went around proclaiming to be the "best wrestler in the world" and proving it in the ring, old school heel acts are just suddenly too out of character for him.

Wrong, but that's okay.

In other news, Kane/Bryan are ridiculously entertaining. Best thing on TV right now.

Now this man knows what he's talking about.

Anyone calling the Punk character stale is insane when just two month ago Punk was a carbon copy of face Cena.

Dolph Ziggler cashed in Money in the Bank. New World Champion.















Just kidding. Big Show def Randy Orton and is moving on to face Sheamus at Hell in a Cell. Logically speaking, I think Sheamus wins, Show knocks him out and Ziggler cashes in the briefcase.

There's also a tag team tournament with the winners facing Kane/Bryan at Hell in a Cell.

Zack Ryder & Santino Marella vs. Tyson Kidd & Justin Gabriel
Kofi Kingston & R-Truth vs. The Primetime Players
Rey Mysterio & Sin Cara vs. Epico & Primo
Rhodes Scholars vs. The Usos

Rhodes Scholars def. The Usos at the taping, so they're on to the second round.

Look at that...8 solid tag teams. That's way more than enough to put a quality tag team division on TV, and even give more than one segment to. I like the idea of a tournament a lot, and would love to see a 3 to 4 team scramble in the near future. They have a great variety of wrestling styles to work with, like they usually put into the MITB matches, and it almost always amounts to excellent matches.

Please have Kane/Bryan vs. Rhodes Scolars vs. Mysterio/Cara vs. PTP in a 4 Way TLC match at the TLC PPV. That'd be epic.

I hope Rhodes Scholars vs. Mysterio/Cara is in the finals and they get a good 20-30 minute match on Smackdown. Would be epic. With the pull Triple H has, I wouldn't be surprised to see that happen.

I do not have words to express how happy I am with a tag-team tournament. Just ****ing unreal! So therefore - I'll just quote these two posts.

First time I watch Smackdown in a very long time... kind of cool to see Beth Phoenix sporting a Buffalo Sabres-esque logo on her attire.

I think she had two Sabres logos, the B and the crossed sabres logo.

Love the promo from the Miz just now. Great look, bragging about his IC belt, even pimped his own extra-curricular business ventures. Making Sheamus look horrible right now. He even hyped up the #1 contender's match and the Sheamus match at HIAC. His delivery was exceptional.

The reply by Sheamus was weak and forced. Delivery sucked.

The fake crowd noise on Smackdown is pathetic though. I find myself listening more for the fake noise than paying attention to the guys in the ring.

Yea the Sabres attire was cool. Beth and Nattie also wrestled a fantastic divas match, whoever the road agent for the match was, probably deserves a lot of credit as well.
