From two-time WWE Champion to jobbing twice in about 10 minutes; Sheamus is either in the dog house or the WWE really has no plans for him right now (which is surprising because Sheamus has a legit and good future in the company). And either way, I hated how Sheamus was buried.
As for being at the sub-par Buffalo show last night, I dare say the best part of being at Raw was not listening to Cole on commentary.
The Rock was 2 weeks ago, the Undertaker returned last week and Stone Cold is supposed to make an appearance next week and we get the return of Evan Bourne (I like Evan Bourne but pales in comparison to appearances by either of these guys).
I really like you, Hogan's My Dad, and you always give reasonable responses, but I'm a bit surprised you still watch WWE at this point. You hate Orton, you have no love for Miz, you are not a fan of Cena, and you have NEVER liked Triple H. Kinda slim pickings left after that.
Concerning Raw, I bet it was torture for the Buffalo crowd live, but I enjoyed the show. I really don't care about the wrestling from WWE at this point. If I actually want to see great wrestling, there are the independents and sometimes TNA. I am much more interested in how they get to the matches they put on, and in that this was a fun show for me. HBK was great. Rock was great. Triple H was good, if a bit frustrating. The story progression in the Punk/Orton feud is good.
Yes, I would have liked to see one good match, but it's Wrestlemania time, so the wrestling has to take a back seat to potential money-drawing angles.

Well, just to be less negative Torchslasher, I still enjoy Edge, Morrison, Rey, Kofi, and especially Punk quite a bit. I love Rock, but he won't be around long. Bourne, Ziggler, Christian, and Daniel Bryan are great workers who I wish were better used. Swagger is good too. Jericho is always gold when he's signed. I really enjoyed Batista's heel run before he took off. Taker is good in the right role. I have hopes for ADR, but they're over-pushing him in the Miz mould except even faster, so I expect similar problems with him. The signing of Mistico is a good move as well. So there is a lot I do enjoy.
But the main event scene? You got me. I'm bored to tears.
Originally posted by Hogan's My Dad That wasn't even a shot at him. Obviously you love you some Hunter. I don't. I never did. I've always found him boring, never thought he was the best in the business, disliked him for years for borderline racist "jokes",
I don't know if getting Benoit away from Team Angle is the proper move right now. Benoit got over with the Boston crowd at the Rumble purely on his WRESTLING...no mic work, no angle development...simply on the amazing match he and Kurt had.
