If you're not on Twitter, somehow you heard about it so you're desperately searching for the screen grab of Brie Bella's nipple for some reason. Here now is that nipple (shut your eyes and scroll down REALLY QUICKLY if you're one of those folks who still have to worry about "NSFW" graphics after 10PM):



More importantly, the last three quarters were devoted to hey remember WRESTLING - specifically, Daniel Bryan's gauntlet against Jack Swagger, Antonio Cesaro and Ryback and if we somehow don't get a consistent ratings growth out of THAT...well, they'll probably stop booking the show for me and replace long matches with encore presentations of entire episodes of "Total Divas." Still, Daniel Bryan's buildup as a mighty fine opponent for John Cena at SummerSlam appears to be proceeding quite nicely.

In a surprise move, not one but two matches for next week's (ie "taped tomorrow") show have been announced in advance - Cena will take on Ryback in a tables match while Bryan clashes with "best friend" Kane in a match which screams out for Wyatt Family involvement.

Not only did we only see Wyatt, Harper and Rowan only in flashback clips tonight, but a promised return of The Big Show (sent via SMS to folks subscribed to receive texts from WWE 20 minutes before showtime) was apparently bumped - we'll expect to see him next week. No Orton tonight either. None of this is me complaining, though, with a mercifully short (+ nipple!) "Total Divas cast on MizTV" segment and a whole heap of Daniel Bryan wrestling in the money segments.

Now you say something!

C'Mon, how can you not go for the cheap hits in the thread title? A Bella boob would have been a draw for years.

I was shocked to see Bryan wrestle a bunch of actual matches and not a bunch of two minute specials against the likes of 3MB and Zach Ryder. So, kudos to whoever booked that.

Holy Bella Boobie Blunder, Batman! I guess it was plenty humid. Mike Chioda looked sweaty as all hell in the main event.

Also, searched WWE.com to make sure I was spelling Chioda right, typed Referee in the search bar. I was a bit perplexed at the first entry, but amused. Try it yourself! If not...

What a main event! Cesaro has always impressed me, but him and Bryan RAWKED in the ring. Let me reitterate that, RAWKED.

I can totally see a program between Ryback and RVD happening just because of airbrushed singlets.

Totally thought the thread title was in reference to the Mark Henry promo.

That Bryan/Cesaro match was insanely great. The uppercuts were simply intense.

I'm really hoping for a solid rating, but we'll see I guess.

I thought I was watching a flurry attack from Punch-Out.

Let's not forget about that finish. Whoa.

Bryan/Cesaro was maybe the 2nd best TV match of the year behind Cena/Punk. Sweet!

Great promo forom Punk and Paul E, as usual.

That crowd was hot all night. They even chanted "si" along with Del Rio. Pretty good match to open the show, with Sheamus sporting a pretty gnarly bruise on his thigh. Smartly enough, they worked the match around that, and the finish too played to Sheamus's weakened leg. Good stuff all around.

John Cena got cheers! My first impression was that he came off very patronizing in his speech to Bryan, but when you think about it, in WWE cannon, Cena has every right to be patronizing to Bryan. Cena, the multiple-time world champion and dominant force in the WWE for the better part of a decade, can actually talk down to Bryan, someone who's been around the WWE for only a few years.

Ryback is now "the Bully Ryback," complete with douchebaggery involving poor Josh Matthews.

So we are headed full steam ahead with Shield v Usos and Henry. I don't mind at all. This crowd was way into Henry, and then popped when the Usos made the save. If other crowds react the same way, you've got a winner here. The Usos and the Shield have already shown they can go in the ring.

Great to see that Dolph's highly entertaining escapades (see what I did there?) against the 3MB from the last couple of weeks have built to something. AJ's frustrated screams of "go after him!" were a cool little touch.

That match against Fandango was the first time in a while that I can remember Cody Rhodes getting to look good in the ring. Was that Fandango's first clean loss? Sandow was pretty fantastic on commentary. Things are looking good for the (ex) Rhodes Scholars.

Paul Heyman with the line of the night: "The Beast IS the best."

Cesaro. Bryan. Brilliant. Surprisingly great was the Ryback match. Those guys have some great pinball-meet-wall chemistry, kind of like Batista and Rey Mysterio. I wouldn't mind seeing them go longer.

The Samoan drop into a small package reversal could not have been done better. It was perfect.

And nice job by The Bully Ryback to sell the leg kicks in the first minute of their match. Immediately, Bryan looked like he had a chance.

We CAN look, actually. Just maybe not live again, but photos last for ever.

Which one is with Cena and which one is with D-Bry again? I always forget.

    Brie Bella Respects the Beard and Nikki Bella knows when The Champ Is Here.

    Nikki is also the one who has a constant "bitch face" going on at all times, even when happy.

    Each Daniel Bryan match had a theme, though I doubt they were intentional:

    -Battle of Former World Heavyweight Champions
    -Battle of Former Indie Darlings (or Former PWG Champs)
    -Battle of Founding Nexus Members

    I'd watch if it was about a different/previous set of Divas. The current crop just isn't that interresting to me.

    Speaking of Divas, no Alicia Fox? No Tamina? No Kaitlin (the CHAMP)? No AJ Leeeee? I feel like I'm missing someone else...
