--------------------------

LIVE from a friend's house. The friend's logic for ordering this seemingly unremarkable PPV...it IS Brock's first match back. Despite this PPV having nothing else going for it...I actually can't argue with that logic.

WWE - The Champ Is Here!

We are LIVE from Chicago, IL! Your hosts are Micheal Cole, Jerry Lawler, and Booker T.

"THE APEX PREDATOR" RANDY ORTON v. KANE: FALLS COUNT ANYWHERE MATCH
I walked into this one late, which is probably for the best, given their lousy Wrestlemania match.

Orton and Kane take their fight to the crowd. Kane actually manages the seated dropkick while fighting in the crowd, which is pretty impressive. More standard brawling through the crowd, which lasts for about five minutes. Fight moves to the top of the stage, where Orton hits a standing dropkick for 2. Now we go backstage, where Kane chucks Orton into random objects. Orton tosses Kane into the lounge area. Dig all of those guys that aren't booked tonight! ZACK RYDER jumps in out of nowhere and starts pounding mercilessly on Kane! Kane grabs the GOOZLE, but Orton jumps Kane from behind! I'm honestly shocked that Ryder didn't get beaten up again. We exit the lounge area towards more random junk and the fight goes back into the arena. We end up back in the ring. Orton's corner punches are greeted with YES! chants! Kane no-sells a DDT, but runs into the snap powerslam. Orton grabs a steel chair and goes to town with it. Each chair shot is given a YES! by the Chicago crowd! On the outside, Orton clears off the announce table. Huh...a little early for that. Kane comes back with the GOOZLE, but Orton elbows out of the chokeslam and puts Kane on the announce table. Orton hits the Hanging DDT off the announce table! RKO is countered with a shove into the steel post! Back in the ring, Kane tries for the top-rope clothesline, but gets crotched. Second-rope superplex gets 2! VIPER COIL~! RKO is countered with the chokeslam...for 2! Kane sets up the chair and SLASHES THE THROAT! Tombstone is countered with the RKO onto the chair for the pin at about 18 minutes.

WINNER: Randy Orton - Decent opener, but I feel like this was a rehash of their SmackDown match a few weeks ago.

Super Dave Laurinaitis is backstage with Eve Torres, as they reflect on what they just saw. Eve waves in Teddy Long, wearing his giant nametag, who wheels in a cart of champagne. The heel GM contingent share champagne...but Laurinaitis suddenly gets a call. It's from COO Triple H, so Laurinaitis takes the call off-screen.

"THE FUNKASAURUS" BRODUS CLAY (w/THE FUNKADACTYLS & HORNSWOGGLE) v. DOLPH ZIGGLER (w/VICKIE GUERRERO & "THE ALL-AMERICAN AMERICAN" JACK SWAGGER)
Brodus is about to have himself his longest outing to date, I'd imagine. Dolph tries a wrestling sequence, but can't move Brodus around. Brodus lunges for Swagger, like a dope, and eats a dropkick from Dolph to send him over the top. Swagger barrels over Brodus to knock him down. Brodus comes back quickly until Dolph hits a low dropkick and the Rocker Dropper for 1. Standing dropkick gets 1. Sleeper Hold, but Brodus chucks Dolph over. Dolph continues to pound away, but the suplex attempt goes nowhere and Brodus chucks him across the ring. Time for the babyface comeback, but Brodus goes after Swagger again! Brodus catches Dolph coming in with the headbutt (with a beautiful oversell from Dolph!) and finishes with the Big Fat Funky Splash in about 5 minutes.

WINNER: Brodus Clay - I love Brodus, but Dolph deserves so much better than this.

Post-match, it's a dance party!

We look back at the Extreme Rules Pre-Show. SPIN THE WHEEL, MAKE THE DEAL! Tonight's Big Show/Cody Rhodes match is a Tables Match. Show laughs heartily at the result, while Rhodes and Eve Torres blame Teddy Long, since he spun the wheel.

THE BIG SHOW v. CODY RHODES: INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP TABLES MATCH
We look back at the first Show/Rhodes match at Wrestlemania.

Show overpowers Rhodes to start and goes to work with the standard Big Show offense. Crowd is so enthralled by this match that they chant "YES! YES! YES!" Hmm...that chant could be misleading, couldn't it? Show tries to come back in and Rhodes dropkicks Show, who tries to break his fall with the table and breaks it. Referee thinks about this and...um...calls the match?

WINNER AND NEW CHAMPION: Cody Rhodes - Well, that was sudden...and probably the dumbest ending they could have thought of. Well-done.

Post-match, Show spears Rhodes, for fun. Show chokeslams Cody through a table. Show looks at the table he went through again, so Show picks up Rhodes and military presses him through the table on the outside. Hit Big Show's music! Well, they sure made Rhodes look like a chump, didn't they? That's just...lovely. The referee brigade checks on Rhodes, who brushes them off and walks off under his own power. Well...that's a little better. Hit his music!

The Story of Edge DVD promo

Backstage, the demoted Matt Striker talks to Daniel Bryan, who gets a huge pop! Striker asks how Bryan can beat Sheamus tonight. Bryan derides this stupid question and says our educational system has turned to crap because of teachers like Striker. HA! Bryan is better because, among other reasons, he has a MANLIER BEARD than Sheamus! DAMN STRAIGHT HE DOES! Tonight, Bryan says he's winning his title back! He walks off chanting YES! YES! YES!, but Bryan doesn't notice AJ ominously pop in from the shadows behind him.

Here's a video package of the Bryan/Sheamus feud.

DANIEL BRYAN v. SHEAMUS: WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP 2 OUT OF 3 FALLS MATCH
Daniel Bryan gets a huge pop from the Chicago crowd and is greeted with "Daniel Bryan" and "YES!" chants! And as expected, the crowd totally eats Sheamus alive, booing him out of the building. And he comes out in an "18 seconds" t-shirt, which does NOT endear him to the crowd. Lilian Garcia gives us the championship intros. Bryan gets more of a mixed reaction this time, but it's almost all heel heat for Sheamus.

1ST FALL
We start off with a wrestling sequence. Sheamus' shoulderblock draws heel heat. Sheamus tries for The Brogue Kick, but Bryan ducks out of the way. "Daniel Bryan" chant starts up. Bryan tries to warm up the arm, but Sheamus wrestles him down. Now a "YES!" chant starts. We continue with the feeling-process, but Bryan's leapfrog is caught and turned into the rolling fireman's carry for 2. Bryan tries for a sunset flip, but Sheamus turns that into a TEXAS CLOVERLEAF! WOW! THAT gets an appreciative pop from the crowd! Bryan reaches the ropes and grabs an inside cradle for 2. Corner whip leads to the Bryan backflip and Bryan knocks Sheamus down with the running clothesline. We move to the outside, but Bryan gets caught and tossed into the barricade. Back in, Sheaums tries for the Irish Missile, but gets crotched. Now we get a dueling "Daniel Bryan"/"18 seconds" chant! Bryan begins to work over the arm, right down to stretching Sheamus' FINGERS! Yeowch! Bryan shifts to a hammerlock before Sheamus elbows him off. Bryan catches him coming in with a running knee and seated dropkick for 2. Bryan chokes away and poses. Both men start to exchange blows and Bryan comes out on top. Bryan continues working over the arm. Sheamus makes the babyface comeback. The ten-count chest strikes draw some heel heat. Fallaway slam gets 2. Sheamus charges in and eats a low dropkick. Bryan pounds on Sheamus in the corner and sets him up on the top rope. Top-rope 'rana attempt fails and Sheamus hits the Irish Missile for 2! Apron suplex leads to Bryan landing on his feet and he lowbridges a charging Sheamus. Bryan's baseball slide is caught with a right hand! The High Cross attempt gets heel heat and Bryan counters with a sunset flip for 2! Bryan repeatedly tries for the YES Lock, but can't lock it in! Sheamus charges into the corner HARD and hits the steel post! Bryan shoves Sheamus shoulder-first into the steel post a couple of times. Bryan works over the shoulder some more and comes back in for a round of YES kicks! Bryan continues kicking away, so the referee DQ's him. LAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAME!

2ND FALL
Announcers note that Bryan got himself DQ'd as a trade-off for destroying Sheamus' arm. So Bryan grabs the YES Lock! Sheamus reaches for the ropes, but starts to fade. Referee checks the arm and Sheamus is passed out, so the 2nd fall goes to Bryan!

3RD FALL
The ref calls for the ringside doctor to check on Sheamus. Bryan leads a round of YES! chants! We now have a second doctor come in. Crowd is dueling with YES! and NO! chants! Sheamus finally starts moving, as the doctors continue to check on him. Doctors ask Sheamus if he can continue, to which he answers "Yes...yes...yes..." Bryan continues leading the crowd in YES! chants and the dueling YES!/NO! chants continue! Bryan charges in and Sheamus gives him one last, desperate Brogue Kick! Sheamus is VERY slow to cover and Bryan kicks out at 2! Both men are slow to get up, as the crowd starts "Daniel Bryan" chants again! Bryan tries for more YES kicks, but Sheamus starts making his own comeback. Bryan nails Sheamus with the kick to the head for 2! Bryan climbs up and gets crotched! Second-rope superplex is blocked with headbutts! Diving headbutt misses! YAAAAAAH running corner dropkick misses and Sheamus comes back with Irish Hammers to a lukewarm reaction. Irish Curse hits! Sheamus looks to the crowd and gets heel heat. And Sheamus polishes off Bryan with the Brogue Kick!

WINNER (2-1): Sheamus - Needless to say, this is what their Wrestlemania match should have been. Bryan was awesome and Sheamus brought his A-game. Fantastic match! There isn't a chance in the world that next month's Sheamus/Del Rio match will touch this one, in terms of quality.

On Sunday, May 20th, Randy Orton goes OVER THE LIMIT! Umm...that PPV name sounds awfully similar to another PPV name that they probably shouldn't be using.

Let's go backstage. Today's round of jobbers watching Ryback are Santino Marella and The Great Khali.

AARON RELIC & JAY HATTON v. RYBACK
Jobbers cut an absolutely hideous promo, which even the announcers start bemoaning.

Huge "Goldberg" chant. Why yes, people ARE paying good money for this, why do you ask?

WINNER: Ryback - SQUASH! WCW used to pull this crap all the time, where they'd take a random TV segment and put it on PPV, just because. This has no place on PPV and the crowd turned on it fast.

The demoted Matt Striker talks to CM Punk. CM Punk notes that tonight's a street fight, Chicago-style. Punk says he'll prove that he's the best in the world in front of his family and 20,000 Chicago friends.

Here's a video package on the Punk/Jericho feud.

CHRIS JERICHO v. CM PUNK: WWE CHAMPIONSHIP CHICAGO STREET FIGHT
Why isn't this going on last? If ever there was a match that would send the crowd home happy, it'd be this one. Punk gets the pop to end all pops, rivaling only his pop at MitB last year. Justin Roberts gives us the championship intros. Both men are in street clothes and wrestling boots tonight.

Both men hammer at each other to start. Punk pounds on Jericho in the corner and beats him to the outside. Punk chases Jericho into the timekeeper's area before tossing chairs into the ring. Punk grabs a kendo stick to a loud "ECW" chant. Punk swings and misses with the kendo stick, so he exits and starts chasing Jericho. Jericho runs in and tries for the sneak attack, but eats a flying clothesline. Punk whacks Jericho with the kendo stick and sets up a chair in the corner. Jericho takes control with a thumb to the eye. Springboard dropkick sends Punk out. Jericho whips Punk into the timekeeper's area and hammers away on him. He whacks Punk in the back with the bell. Punk chucks Jericho over the announce table, but Jericho comes back with a headbutt. Back in the ring, Jericho undoes the turnbuckle and whips Punk with the turnbuckle pad! Punk comes back with chops, but the corner knee misses. On the outside, Jericho rips the padding off the barricade and slams Punk's head onto the steel barricade, right next to Punk's sister! Jericho chokes away and rubs Punk's family in his face. Jericho mouths off to Punk's sister, who slaps him! Jericho lunges for Punk's sister, but Punk catches him with a tackle and loses his shit! Punk starts tearing apart the announce area and slams Jericho into the announce table hood! Punk tries for a piledriver (!), but Jericho counters with a backdrop. Jericho whacks Punk in the back with a TV monitor and then bashes him with the remainder of the announce table hood! Time to hit the chinlock...in a street fight. Punk tries to come back, but he slips off the springboard attempt and stumbles into a kendo stick shot. That botch didn't look too bad and they covered it well. Jericho grabs a can of beer from the outside and pours it over Punk. Jericho pounds on Punk some more. Jericho grabs a second can and does a "Stone Cold" impression before getting kicked in the gut. Punk comes back with kendo stick shots. Kendo stick-assisted dropkick hits! Corner knee/bulldog combo hits! Punk crotches Jericho with the kendo stick. The GTS is reversed into a Walls attempt, which Punk flips out of. Jericho plays possum, which allows him to crotch Punk on a Savage Elbow attempt. Second-rope superplex attempt is blocked and Jericho gets knocked down. Savage Elbow gets 2! GTS is blocked and Jericho hits the bulldog. Lionsault is caught and nearly turned into the GTS, but Jericho lands on his feet and chucks Punk into the chair set up in the corner for 2! Punk stumbles to his feet and falls right into the Codebreaker! Jericho stalls and opts to try for the Walls of Jericho and it's a full-on Liontamer...until Jericho shifts into the crab. That allows Punk to reach the ropes...except it's a Chicago Street Fight. Punk reaches under the ring and grabs a fire extinguisher! Punk breaks the Walls with a fire extinguisher blast! What an awesome spot! Jericho's blinded and tries to wipe his face with the referee's shirt, but walks right into a fire extinguisher shot to the gut. We now shift to the outside, where Punk hits Jericho with the roundhouse to send him onto the Spanish announce table. Crowd pops, knowing what's coming next. Punk climbs up...and nearly falls over! Oops! Punk situates himself and hits the SAVAGE ELBOW THROUGH THE SPANISH ANNOUNCE TABLE! Jericho's dead weight, so Punk has to get him back in the ring. With all the time passed, a cover only gets 2...so Punk QUICKLY shifts into the Anaconda Vise! Jericho reaches for the kendo stick and whacks Punk with it to break the hold! Another brilliant spot! Both men are down and each grab a weapon, with Jericho grabbing the kendo stick and Punk grabbing a chair. Punk's chair wins, but he stumbles into a CODEBREAKER OFF THE CHAIR!!! IT ONLY GETS 2!!! Jericho looks like he's run out of ideas and he yells at Punk to stay down! Now Jericho tries for the GTS! Punk counters it with a catapult into the exposed turnbuckle! GTS finishes this war of attrition and Punk retains!

WINNER: CM Punk - Absolutely fucking phenominal match! If this is it for Jericho, he's going out on a hell of a high note! Again, why didn't this go on last?

Post-match, Punk does a stage dive into the crowd, right next to his family!

Don't Try This At Home promo

We look back at the Extreme Rules pre-show, where Santino Marella beat The Miz clean to show just how much The Miz means these days. As for Santino...he is SO getting fed to Lord Tensai and the sooner we all slump our shoulders, sigh, and accept it, the better.

Backstage, Eve Torres walks into The Bellas trying to talk Beth Phoenix out of tonight's match. Beth threatens The Bellas, but Eve notes that Beth isn't medically cleared. Beth says she'll get her title back eventually. The Bellas are happy about this turn of events, but Eve tells them there's a mystery opponent for them tonight. And she absolutely promises that it's TOTALLY NOT Kharma! The Bellas walk away relieved, as Eve mischieveously smiles.

The Bellas cut an opening promo, vowing that Nikki will be the longest-reigning champion in history. They call out their mystery opponent. They get...

NIKKI BELLA (w/BRIE BELLA) v. LAYLA
YES! It's someone that can actually wrestle! God, I've missed you, Layla!

Layla outwrestles Nikki to start. Nikki charges into a boot, but Brie takes advantage of a referee distraction and trips up Layla. Nikki targets Layla's bad knee. Layla gets a small package for 2 and Nikki puts her down with a dropkick. Nikki charges into an elbow and Layla hits a tackle. Springboard crossbody gets 1 and Layla wipes out Brie. Pin reversal sequence follows and Layla kicks Nikki to the outside. TWIN BULLSHIT! Brie's facebuster is countered with the Lay Out (not called by the announcers) for the pin and the title!

WINNER AND NEW CHAMPION: Layla - Welcome back, Layla! It's great to have her back, as I was enjoying her babyface run before it was cut abruptly short by her injury.

Backstage, the demoted Matt Striker catches up to Big Johnny and asks about Triple H. Big Johnny brushes off Striker's question, saying it'll be address on tomorrow's Raw. Hmm...

Video package on Cena/Brock

BROCK LESNAR v. JOHN CENA: EXTREME RULES MATCH
Brock's now sporting MMA-style shorts and shoes as his ring gear. Cena comes to the ring sporting his hideous lime green ensemble, along with his Thuganomics chain. Crowd is not impressed with John Cena, giving him a healthy amount of boos.

Cena charges in, but Brock takes him down and pounds away with MMA-punches and elbows. Cena recovers, but Brock wipes him out with a clothesline. Cena's already busted open and we're only seconds into the match! Cena tries for a takedown, which gets booed by the crowd. Brock comes out on top and continues pounding away on Cena. Doctors come in to close Cena's cut and the match has groudn to a halt. Cena charges in again and AGAIN gets caught with a shit ton of punches! Lesnar slides Cena to the outside like he's a piece of garbage. That is a HELL of a cut, as Cena's bleeding from his skull! AGAIN, the match grinds to a halt! I understand the story they're telling here, but this reeks of a poor man's UFC. Cena tries a desperation Attitude Adjustment, but it's countered with Rolling Germans! Cena tries to come back with The Usual, but we get a ref bump. Well, that seems unnecessary in an EXTREME RULES MATCH! The brief flurry doesn't last long, either, as Brock just continues to destroy Cena. Cena reaches for the Thuganomics chain, but Brock picks him apart some more. Brock grabs an armbar and sends Cena into the turnbuckle. To the outside, Brock grabs another armbar. Brock sends Cena back in and grabs Cena's Thuganomics chain. But Brock drops it, because HE DON'T NEED NO STINKIN' CHAIN TO KICK YOUR ASS!!! Brock beats Cena up some more before tying Cena up with his own chain. THE IRONING IS DELICIOUS! This is just methodical destruction. Cena gets hung upside-down on the steel post. Brock murders Cena some more. Brock looks for the ref, which allows Cena a brief flurry. Brock laughs this offense off and chucks Cena into the steel steps. With Cena disposed of, Brock grabs Charles Robinson by his belt and tosses him back in with one hand! Brock wakes the ref up, as Cena crawls back in. Brock steps on his hand and tosses away his pitiful Thuganomics chain. Cena tries for one last, desperate Attitude Adjustment, so Brock effortlessly counters into the F5...and bumps Charles Robinson AGAIN! A second ref comes in and the F5 gets 2! Brock's so disgusted by this that he beats the shit out of the second ref! More referees are coming out, as Brock throws the steel steps into the ring. Brock stands on top of the steps and poses. Cena tries one final comeback, but Brock grabs the armbar! Cena POWERS BROCK UP and drives him into the steel steps! Cena climbs up top, but the Sicilian Slice misses! Brock recovers and mocks Cena atop the steps. Brock looks like he's hardly broken a sweat. He nails Cena with a FLYING ELBOW OFF THE STEPS! Both men fall to the outside and...aww, shit, Brock hurt himself. Brock limps for a bit, but laughs it off...literally. Cena AGAIN grabs the chain, but Brock doesn't see it. Brock launches himself and lands on a chain-assisted fist! Brock looks to be out momentarily, as Cena rallies the crowd! Now Brock's busted open! Cena measures Brock, as he stumbles to his feet. ATTITUDE ADJUSTMENT ON THE STEEL STEPS!!! Cena covers for the pin!

WINNER: John Cena - Wow, they had such a GREAT Sting/Vader-style beatdown on their hands there to build an awesome, unstoppable heel and they TOTALLY WUSSED OUT by turning it into Just Another Cena Win. Questionable result aside, this was a very good match and was a very DIFFERENT style of match than the normal main event that we're all used to seeing. I very much enjoyed this!

Post-match, Cena poses on top of the steel steps and gives the Marine salute. Cena looks into the camera and jokes the whole thing off, just to show he's learned ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! Snark aside, I will admit that this crowd is largely Pro-Cena now and he earned every bit of that support. Cena grabs the mic to deliver an ending promo. He says that he's proud to bleed in Chicago. Cena issues a veiled hint that he's taking a vacation after this and that he's happy that his last match was in Chicago. Wait...so he IS going away? Then...what was the point of jobbing Brock? WHY? Ugh...I don't get it.

Closing credits and we're out!

----------------------------------------------

Didn't expect a lot of good to come out of this PPV, but it may very well be one of The E's strongest PPV's in a long, long time. Catch the main event and the two world title matches, if you can, because they're all classics! Even if the booking was a little specious (and isn't it always?), the wrestling was top-notch!

That would've been the perfect match if Lesnar was only here for one. Here for a year, crazy. The match itself was incredible. With all the blood and the chaos, it actually stole the show from the two title matches. Really emotional finish with Cena afterwards, even as the dollars went down the drain. Cena says he's going away for a while -- seemed to have hurt his shoulder badly, or it's part of the new fake real injuries.

Bryan/Sheamus was tremendous. The part where Bryan kicks his arm into oblivion, gets DQ'd, makes his tap, then leads a YES symphony shows how great he's going to be as an asskicking babyface.

Punk/Jericho strong too, spectacular moment with the elbow through the table even without a lot of vertical.

Also Layla!

Fantastic show, but as with Mania, skip the first hour.

Nice of Goldberg to make an appearance.....oh wait. Ryback is pointless. What happened to him being a goofy but dangerous Cornfed Colossus?

Punk vs jericho: Awesome!
Bryan vs. Sheamus: Excellent!
Lesnar vs.brock: Suprising. In ending and story.

Nevermind that shit! Here comes Mong..... Layla!! The last Diva Search winner, former diva's champion, one half of the most dominant female stable in WWE history Lay-Cool, America's Next Top "WWE Di Vur" Layla!! I miss her and she has been working on her ring work in her absence. For a while I thought she had quietly retired.

I've never been a Lesnar fan, but right after his match ends as he is walking from the ring stumbling around. Some little kid gives Brock the "You'll get 'im next time champ" shoulder pat, Brock re-actively puts his fist up at the kid, causing him to hilariously jump back in fear. That's as old school heel as it gets.

Also Booker T had the line of the night during the Shaemus vs.Bryan match after about 10-12 minutes in:

"Look at the sweat on these two!"

Forgot what else happened. Good PPV!

I loved the Brock/Cena match on so many levels. Then the ending happened. I really expected Brock to kick out at 2 and when he didn't I just stared at the screen. It made no sense.

Rest of the show was pretty great. Both title matches were lots of fun. Daniel Bryan and Sheamus was outstanding. Sheamus grows on me more and more every week.

They skipped Rocky III and jumped right into Rocky IV, with Cena winning the impossible fight against the Aryan monster and then giving the victory speech on the mic.

I thought the show was awesome. My respect for John Cena and for Sheamus for taking their respective beatings is sky high. Daniel Bryan is incredible. Brock is phenomenal. The matches were booked the way they were booked, but the performances were unreal. Jericho and Punk too. Three legitimate match of the year contenders on this show.

Ha ha, Big Show and the table. Cody took a Foley-esque bump too. Military press slam out of the ring into a table is a horror show. Show deserved the torrent of boos.

Brie cost Nikki the title. Could the Bellapowers Explode tomorrow or will they just fade away? If the latter, those outfits are how I want to remember them.

Ladies and gentlemen, the following public service message is brought to you by your friends from D-Generation X, who would like to remind each and every one of you that if you're not down with that, we've got two words for you...

There's a huge reason why it totally made sense for Cena to go over Brock, and it had everything to do with last Monday's completely ridiculous closing segment where Johnny Laryngitis essentially sold the entire company to Brock without Brock proving himself in the ring. No matter what happens starting tomorrow - which will almost certainly be Brock "injuring" Cena and sending him away for a well-deserved few months' vacation, then starting to run roughshod over the rest of the roster - he's always going to have the air of "fraud" around him now as he enjoys his ill-gotten perks, because even though Brock put a 15-minute beatdown on Cena, Cena still beat him fair and square and is still "the man" in WWE until they collide again. There's definitely something effective when trying to build heel heat if there's something false about how said heel is presented to the audience, and with Brock having lost to Cena, we've now got that in spades. Plus, we have the unintended bonus of Johnny now having huge egg on his face for his huge acquisition showing himself to be said fraud, and the wrath that will inevitably follow is only going to help build HIS heel heat (which he sorely needs because he lacked a story beyond the superficial "people power" BS until now).

Part of me has to think that the decision in the Divas title match will be reversed tomorrow on RAW, given that Layla didn't actually pin Nikki and I don't see a way to move the belt from Layla to Kong without some character damage, unless they've changed their approach to the situation and decided to have Kong restart her rampage through the Divas before challenging Beth after BETH gets the title back. We'll see what happens, but regardless of what happens with the title, the Bellas will almost surely make their exit via the Wrath of Kong tomorrow unless a miracle has occurred and they've decided to reup.

While the switch from Cena to RVD should alleviate some complaints, the inevitability of the belt's return to Cena (note where Summerslam is this year) and the poor initial showing by the new ECW are enough to keep the indicator where it is for now. The pieces are in place, though, especially on RAW, for improvements to be made to the IWC's psyche in the near future.

I guess maybe the plan now is for Brock to run roughshod for a few months, and when Cena returns to finally slay the beast....THEN Brock beats him to make him look truly unstoppable. This sets up the rubber match for Wrestlemania.

I've only seen the Cena/Brock match, but I think that match couldn't have gone any more perfectly.

I don't want to see the Brock Lesnar from 2002 in today's WWE. We've already lived through that 10 years ago.

This match helped both Cena and Brock, because Brock still went out there, in a WWE ring, and was UFC Brock wrestling a different style than what we're used to. And it obviously helps Cena because now he has a big win after losing to The Rock.

The Brock that came out tonight was fresh, original, and read as a character that developed from his MMA career. I liked it a lot. This is an example of bringing something new to the table and moving forward.

All they're really doing is just allowing Brock Lesnar to be the person he's been in UFC for the last few years. He talks trash, he can dominate but can also lose, and he's also someone who can still take the title at any time. And he probably will down the road.

We'll see what happens, but regardless of what happens with the title, the Bellas will almost surely make their exit via the Wrath of Kong tomorrow unless a miracle has occurred and they've decided to reup.
You said "Kong" three times. Who IS that?

(I miss Layla's music. I still expect Michelle to walk out when that song plays. Mind you, I'm always happy when it ISN'T her...say, speaking of Layla, anybody seen Hot Newz?)

Ryback is the new Renegade, not the new Goldberg.

I'm still not impressed, as far as Lesnar's comeback is concerned. If I wanna watch UFC, I watch UFC, not fake UFC on WWE PPV.

Match of the night: Daniel "Yes" Bryan vs. Sheamus. Nothing else came even close, wrestling-wise.

I still don't know why if you are going to send Cena off for a few months, you have him win. Wouldn't it make more sense to have Brock beat him and let someone new save the company. Someone like Punk or Sheamus or a turned Miz or any of the heels? That is a star making device and they once again wasted it on Cena. The reason WWE has problem making break through stars is they give all their hero moments to one guy who gets a 50/50 reaction. I just don't understand it. Now that Cena beat Brock does anyone really buy him as a threat? I think they just threw a whole lot a money down the drain.

The rest of the show was fairly excellent and I am glad they are sticking with Punk. Not sure about Sheamus, but they telegraphed that ending with Alberto getting a tittle shot. I do wish Bryan would have won, but at least they both had a good showing even if it sorta reeks of Vince saying "You are going to cheer for who I damn well, tell you to cheer for."

Not all that curious about Raw tonight. They have to get some heat back on Lesnar. Maybe killing Cena then taking out HHH. Yet, Lesnar/HHH is not a match I would pay to see right now, 2002 yeah sure, now not so much.

The only way HHH/Lesnar would work is if Hunter's agreed to be the sacrificial lamb to rehab Brock's vicious killer image. Which I could see them doing, honestly.

Questionable main event booking aside, a KILLER show. Like, Money In The Bank-level good.

LOL Miz.

The thing is, Brock (seemingly) injured Cena, taking him out of action. What does it matter if he lost the match, if he ultimately accomplished his goal of taking out Cena? Brock isn't a "WWE Superstar", he's an asskicker. What does he like to do? "I like to hurt people." Wins and losses shouldn't matter to him as long as he gets to break bodies. What's scarier than a wrestler who doesn't care if he loses matches, as long as he gets to hurt you (and gets paid big $$$ to do so)? You may be able to beat him, but if he can take you out of commission, who's really the winner? Especially a guy like Cena, where wrestling is his life. Cena won, but now he's going to have to sit at home, away from what he loves doing the most, which has got to kill him.

Was that really his goal? It sure seemed like his goal was to beat Cena. Or if anything, Brock's goal was to make lot of $$$, and that's why he's got to win. Brock is definitely a sadist, but he's a mercenary first.

I think Brock losing was the correct outcome.

If he won, then he had nothing to prove. If he lost, then he can only use that to essentially run roughshod throughout the WWE until a rematch happens, eventually, with Cena.

It's not like he was outmanned or anything - he pretty much dominated for the majority of that fight and only lost because he, perhaps, got overly cocky and too focused on hurting Cena.

As for the PPV, it was definitely thumbs up from me - the three marquee matches were fantastic (including that insane dive from Punk to the announce table).

It was awesome seeing Layla back, too.

Not to mention, if he won then Monday Night Raw was going to be renamed to Monday Night Raw Starring Brock Lesnar. That shoulda been the tipoff right there to make me change my prediction.

A jittery Teddy Long is sent by Johnny to interview Brock: "So, Mister Lesnar, how does it feel to have lost your last three fights?"

Not all of Teddy's remains are found.

Then it would be something new. What we got was the same old same old Cena match. He gets shit kicked out of him then magically recovers enough to beat someone with AA. Granted, that is about 85% to 90% of the babyface matches, the WWE does, but its even more ridiculous considering how much punishment Cena took. So, now Lord Tensi is more of a threat, because he at least beat Cena, come on. It would be different if Cena won then Brock totally destroyed him after the match. No, Brock slinks away while Cena gives his One to Grow on speech and says something about taking time off.

So, its ok for Cena to take time off, now? Wasn't the entire point of his feud with Rock about being the guy who is there every night in and night out. Just, amazing. Again, Brock is just another guy Cena beat. Not someone that took Cena out, who is a giant threat and its going to take someone to man up to stop him. Nope, he is spoiled child who got beat like everyone else and will wreck Cena maybe tonight and the reasoning behind that is because he is a loser. And God help us if we get Lord Racial Insensitive A-Train vs Punk all Summer.

To me, the person who took out Brock would be a massive star. If Cena lost and he checked out for a few months would have made the WWE less money. Again, if he is going to check out which we probably have to take with a grain of salt.

Hah, wow, I guess "Anything can happen" doesn't only apply to WWE. I couldn't believe my eyes, or my ears. He's actually not bad at all.
