    The same could be said about a great many printed publications. It's a big deal because Maxim remains a mainstream publication available at news stands everywhere, and in many places where Playboy isn't sold. Kelly Kelly would have been the next cover girl for Playboy, as they teased in vignettes with Maria when Maria was on the cover, but the switch to PG nixed that. And that actually probably saved Kelly's job as every Diva who has ever posed for Playboy in some manner or another is now gone from the company (au revoir, Maryse).

    Plus it's a pretty fantastic photo spread. Probably the best K2 has ever looked in a magazine.


Aren't most the Divas from those eras long gone anyways? Their shelf life isn't long whether they do Playboy or not, but the extra money is probably worth it.

Seeing Mason Ryan (briefly) break out the Masterlock only reminds me that we'll have to suffer Ryan's greenness for the next few years, and he'll probably get cut for not getting over before he learns the craft (crowd was dead for the local boy's match).

Maybe Rodriguez eating all the GTS's is too old school for today's audience? In the absence of managers, it's nice to see them build to a match based on fans getting frustrated that the face never can quite get his hands on the heel. (Or in this case, the face's finishing move.)

The "Wheel of Booking" has landed Punk in something of a tough spot here - he really should have come out to confront Nash at some point, but that's not his feud now. Even with H supposedly not returning for another month. I also suspect that Punk's not going over at Survivor Series, so maybe he needs to build his heat where he can.

I think King legit broke Cole up during the Swagger match, when Cole was doing a hog call to rip on JR, and King said "Stop that, Vickie's coming over". At least there was a long pause on the cough button after that crack.

I've seen airbrushing, and that Maxim cover was sandblasting - I think the cover designer took Kelly's "blank" expression to a new level.

Your moral of the main event: Cena > Cena & Ryder.

Divas in Playboy is a now a product of the most recent bygone decade. Maryse was the last WWE Diva in the company who had any Playboy affiliation.

To be thorough, WWE Divas who were Playboy cover girls/nude in Playboy Magazine):

Sable (1999 twice, 2004 with Torrie Wilson)
Chyna (2000, 2002)
Torrie Wilson (2003, 2004 with Sable)
Christy Hemme (2005)
Candice Michelle (2006, though she did a lot of prior work for Playboy special editions and for Playboy TV)
Ashley Massaro (2007, also she posed for the Playboy Cyber Club in 2003 and 2004 under a different name)
Maria Kanellis (2008)

Also:
Tiffany (Taryn Terrell) (2007 onward, special editions model)
Maryse Ouellet (2007-2008, special editions model)

If most of those Divas didn't do Playboy, they would be like most of the Divas that have passed through over the years ... hard to remember or differentiate from other common Divas. I'm excluding Sable and Torrie Wilson who fall somewhere in the Trish/Stacey Kiebler range.

Edit: and of course Chyna for what she is

Absolutely!

Cena even referenced the madness meets the mania during the opening promo.

She's airbrushed so much that her photo looks like a painting.

      My gut says it's going the same way Laycool's mean girls act went,


    LayCool was the top act in the Divas Division for about two years, pushed to the moon despite the total lack of reaction from every arena crowd in every city in the world.

    Speaking of which, that was a horrendous LayCool impression from the Divas of Doom. As far from Flawless as you can get.



The worst part about the entire Divas of Doom storyline isn't even that they're just another Divas Duo that's copying Laycool (again). It's that at the start of this feud, Natalya and Beth actually had people believing that they were dominant, and that K2 would have to overcome the odds.

Now, thanks to a few months of hard work by creative, Beth and Natalya are as a pair equal to Kelly Kelly. They get run off by Alicia Fox (wtf?) and an Eve that is less mobile than Kelly's giant Maxim ad.

The WWE took something that dropped right into their hands and said "Holy crap this is working already and we didn't have to do a thing.... kill it! KILL IT WITH FIRE!!!"

I had read somewhere on the intermets that JR actually missed the flight, dunno if that was actually true or not. Was hoping somebody here knew.

I bet Justin got some angry wrestling-snob emails after that one. Never change, Shapiro!

It sounded more like he just wasn't flown over.

By far the best part of J-Sharp's writeup:

"Lawler makes a cute little joke about Penn State going to State Pen, which I guess is funny because a bunch of children got sexually assaulted. I am not equivocating them in the least, but glass castles and all that, Uncle Jer."

No, there's way better parts than that. One of my favs is "We are told that Ryder has been petitioning for a U.S. title shot at Dolph, who doesn't think #he'll get one."
