Hockey playoffs are interfering with recaps!

Dean Ambrose continues to have weekly singles matches on Smackdown, facing Daniel Bryan this week. Ambrose won by DQ when Kofi Kingston ran in to interrupt the Bulldog DDT. Will there be some sort of six man tag at Extreme Rules with all the titles on the line, or will the Shield have a normal tag match and a singles match for them?

Chris Jericho disappointed me by doing his Highlight Reel intro and introducing "The man... the machine... Ryback". If ever a situation was building up to The Ryback, that was it. He did have a perfectly serviceable main event match with The Ryback, which he won by DQ. No sign of John Cena on Smackdown, of course, so The Ryback was able to abuse Jericho further after the match.

Mark Henry pulled some semi-trailers, and shockingly did not get attacked by Sheamus in the process. I guess this show we can't complain about cheater Sheamus and his cheating!

And finally, for some reason, it looks like Josh Mathews might be going heel on commentary. He talked about how The Ryback was justified in opposing Cena, and compared Michael Cole's Cena defense to JR with Stone Cold. Is this just Mathews taking a stand against Cena, or will he turn on everyone? Tune in next week to find out!

Kofi got a giant pop for running down to help Bryan. I know everyone wants SHIELD to win all the titles, but it would be better to restart Kofi to have him be the win to beat the Shield at least the first one. To be fair, I just don't see the Shield guys being main eventers once this storyline needs.

I noticed that Lilian announced Ryback as hailing from Las Vegas this week instead of Sin City. Has that happened before tonight?

So...
Sin City = face
Las Vegas = heel

Got it.

Are you...are you serious? You think there's more value in trying to rebuild Kofi than there is in protecting their best-debuted young prospects in about a decade?

Yes. Kofi has the same pedigree as Cena. Over with the kid crowd, is a good baby face and is a damn good worker. We have no idea what the final act of Shield us going to be. We all figure they are going to win all of these titles then what? Another three months of winning for what end? Are they going to get a shot one of the world titles in another tag match?

WWE and wrestling in general is anyone can be a heel. Its simple. There is a handful of great babyfaces out there. Kofi if used correctly could be that guy. To me, its a win situation Kofi becomes an out of nowhere hero and the Shield can split up or come at him harder. To me, its better than the alternative of Shield being jobbed to Cena or one of the politically motivated part timers.

I think three new uberprotected stars, two of whom we know can work like gangbusters and one of whom has been hailed as the next big superstar by pretty much everyone in the know, are more valuable a commodity than a guy who's always struggled with cutting promos and has spent so much time bouncing around midcard Hell that they may as well rename the secondary titles "the Kofi Kingston Memorial Championships". But each to their own.

Amos beat me to this.

Reigns: Has the *exact* look the WWE loves, above average on the stick and in the ring. best possible comp? I could see him being like Mark Henry is now. They'r enot going to drop this.

Ambrose: Can go in the ring, and does superior work on the mic. He's going to get over regardless just through mic work. Comp? Foley with skill. Not dropping this either.

Rollins: Easiest comp if things break out alright for him? Byran circa right now. Not dropping this.
