I can't believe it! A monumental SURPRISE debut! And nobody wants to talk about it?

Yes, friends - I'm talking about TJ WILSON debuting as ... "Tyson Kidd." And/or all the shocking pink Natalia added to her hair for.....some reason of some sort. Possibly.

OR maybe I'm talking about BAO NGUYEN! When was the last time a Vietnamese guy wrestled on WWE television? EVER? Unfortunately he didn't get enough offense in so the commentators could say BAO! BAO! BAO! And so on

I guess the most disappointing thing about Christian's debut was the fact that they went ahead and did a crappy reimagining of the perfectly fine theme he left with.

Also that REALLY scary silence in the middle of his promo (which will hopefully be interpreted as "people in the audience waiting in rapt attention for whatever he had to say," as opposed to "completely dying out there")

Was it just me or did that guy go through the KFC drive-thru about a DOZEN times and EVERY time he had to ask the SAME question because he KEPT FORGETTING THAT THE SECRET RECIPE STARTED AT ONLY 99 CENTS?!?!?! HAH???

I'm not sure what disappoints me more. Christian coming back on ECW, or Christian not coming back with what was my single favorite theme in all of WWE.

He had a nice little match with Swagger. Don't forget we also got a video for the return of Evan Bourne! I like the ECW roster more and more each day.

Could I be the first to point out the blindingly obvious? I'm good at that!

Instead of
- Matt Hardy as ECW Champion
- Christian as the guy attacking Jeff
(setting up Hardyz vs E&C)

the shocking surprise of
- Christian as (future) ECW Champion
- Matt Hardy as the guy attacking Jeff
(setting up...)

Surprise!

Christian looked really rusty in the ring and honestly out of shape somewhat, Swagger had to carry the entire match. Did you see those marks on the back of Christian tonight?

Maybe that's why Christian is on WWE's C-show for a while

And also, did Christian look small compared to Swagger or what?

For the first time in who knows how long, I watched a WWE program live.

Anyway, Christian coming back surprised me...as in going to ECW. The promo with Swagger was hilarious. I guess he could end up as the #1 or #1A face in ECW...but of course it could change.

Speaking of Swagger, he had the funniest moment. Coming to the ring, the belt drops to the floor, and it was LIVE too!!! Thanks to Finlay for mentioning it at the table during the main event.

Finally, since I haven't written in a while, the Grisham/Striker announce team...probably the most entertaining team in wrestling today.

I was trying to explain the Christian situation to a non-fan, and I referred to it as "the stupidest thing they've done since..." and I realized that it's only been a few weeks since something much bigger and stupider. And fatter and grayer.

Christian can fight Swagger at WM for the ECW title - better than Swagger/Finlay or Swagger/Dreamer - and eventually get moved over to SD in the 2009 draft lottery. (Or, you know, whenever they feel like it for reasons they don't have to give.) They've done worse to better. But given my hopes for Hardys vs. Edge & Christian at WM and a TLC rematch at Backlash, this blows.

It's so weird that he would look smaller compared to a man he's smaller than!

Wow, really? Not even a PPV debut? And ECW???

I do like the idea of Morrison/Miz playing in the same sandbox with Christian. There should be a good series with Finlay. And there seems to be enough flexibility between ECW & SD for him to drop by & say hi to Edge. Still, a pretty bland way to bring back somebody who gets good buzz.

Strategically placed pink maple leaf. Doesn't quite go with the fire-snorting devil masks on the sides. Does this Tyson Kidd have some sort of speech impediment too? Not quite a lisp, but something about tees & esses.

I think he's just from Quebec.



I actually liked Christian's theme song.......cover? All this hype and he goes to the C show. Hopefully this is until the Draft comes up this year, as I really wanted him in a feud with either Hardy or better yet Edge.

God, E & C promos are coming back. No matter how you slice it, it's still fresh.

Add me to the "shocked that Christian was placed on ECW" list.

Maybe they intend for him to be on Smackdown all along, but they wanted his debut to be a big surprise. If they had him debut on the Smackdown taping, then the news would have immediately gone out to all the internet wrestling sites and they end up with zero surprise for the television audience.

Ah god

This is not how I roll


edit: oh man, I bet this is the first time Waterproof Blonde has ever been covered in any capacity whatsoever.

you know what's awesome is how Christian is a lot better as a heel and Matt is a lot better as a babyface

I still love this man. Candice Michelle loses her finisher and her GoDaddy spot in the same month, harsh.

It's not like Candice is going to be using it on a regular basis. Of the Divas on Raw, only Beth Phoenix and Melina have finishers that they use regularly. Or maybe those are the only gals getting pins on anyone anyway.

As far as Christian is concerned, I only have this:

For all the peeps and all the fools,
Say it loud, Christian Rules.

Wow, this was the big return people have been waiting for for six months and it goes without hype to the WWE's land of the lost. I do hope he is in at least Money in the bank for Mania, because him vs. Swagger is not that interesting.

Yeah, definitely anticlimactic to say the least. On the other hand, there are definitely worse things to happen then having Christian come back to take Matt Hardy's spot on what is currently my favorite wrestling program. He did seem a little rusty, and the crowd wasn't helping anyone last night, but I think once he gets back in his groove this could wind up being pretty fun.

Without Matt and Bourne and the randomness of Miz&JoMo, ECW was quickly becoming the Hornswoggle & Boogeyman hour...now I have a reason to watch again. Christian gets to be the #1 face on the C show, as opposed to getting involved in the Hardys or his (ex) brother's storylines, or lost in the shuffle on the crowded RAW upper/mid card.

And Noble and the new Canadian can give us some cruiserweight fun too. But why is Natalya now an ECDub valet when she is capable of much more on SD!? Because her best friend retired? Because Maryse and Michelle are the 2 female heels over there?

I like how everyone keeps saying that ECW is linked to Smackdown. Doesn't anyone remember that ECW now tapes with RAW?

I don't have a problem with him being on ECW. It'll give him his own little show to shine on.

Damn, I knew I should have watched ... As surprised as I am, I think it's a wise move on the E's part, as it now creates a buzz about ECW that hasn't been there in a while. I'd like to see a Christian/Morrison feud sometime this year.

With the debut of Tyson "TJ Wilson" Kidd and his being seconded by Nattie, I wonder if this now plants the seeds for the return of DH Smith and the long-rumored new generation of the Hart Foundation/Bulldogs ...

Heck, I'm now semi-interested in wrestling again.

If they wanted me to watch ECW, mission accomplished. They needed to do something to jazz up the show, and this is as good a move as any other, save bringing back RVD.
