If they're going so far as to put Austin's twitter handle up on screen, it's an obvious bet that they are well aware of Ryder's growing online popularity. And hell, if his t-shirt is selling out and his video views are going up, what is their incentive to put a ton of effort in right now? I say they're waiting to see how far he can take it on his own while they figure out how in the hell to make something of this (which they've never had to figure out before in this manner). Bravo for Ryder, really.

As for Punk/Austin, that was tremendous. I'd pretty much punch a baby in the face in order to get those two on next year's Mania card together. Then again, I'm Irish, so I'd probably just use a cloverleaf on said baby instead.

Wow. Paul Roma, standing there with Jim Powers, looks like he could be The Masterpiece's dad/older brother. The resemblance is uncanny.

R-Truth is on fire. He's really nailing it.

Is this the wrestler taking the initiative himself to develop his personality or is Creative writing entertaining scripts for him? I find it hard to believe that it's Creative, but I was led to believe that's how they were doing things these days.

I don't know how an Austin/Punk match at Mania could work unless Austin had multiple warm-up matches in the weeks prior on TV to build to it. Most of the current fans haven't seen him wrestle and wouldn't know how to react to him and he has ring rust. Hey, have him and Cena's opponent at Mania have a throw away match on Superstars so they can get the timing down for Mania.
Now, as for Piper's question on who would be rescued if King Kong Bundy, Andre the Giant and Mean Gene Okerlund were in a well, I'd go with King Kong Bundy as Andre is already dead, Okerlund betrayed Verne Gagne and King Kong Bundy was good on Married with Children. Plus, he elbow dropped a midget. Thus, King Kong Bundy would be the correct choice.

Roddy Piper looks worse each time out.

Remember when a Piper's Pit was a special event hyped weeks prior and sometimes reserved for pay-per-view?
Now it's just tossed onto the show randomly with no fanfare. I prefer appearances by legends to be rare and special.

Hats off the the crowd who kept up great energy with the dueling chants. The wrestlers/entertainers really seem to feed off the excitement.

Yea, he looked awful out there. But he can still cut a good promo.

So do I and I think the WWE does a very good job at not over-exposing legends.

Cena is way over, no matter how much people dislike him. I hope R-Truth brings in the PPV money to keep his push going.

He's not worse every time out, but he's very hit-and-miss. This week was nothing special, nor his weird cameo when the A-Team guest-hosted Raw or his shaky performance in MSG a couple of years ago.

But, Piper countered that with his awesome promo against Jericho before WM25 and then his great "respect the title" speech to Cena before Survivor Series last year. When Piper is on, he's still as good as he (or any promo man) ever was.

“Take that Little Jimmy!” got quite the pop. I see a toning down or an ultra villainous act coming to quell fan support. Guys who talk shit and hurt people are hard to keep heel, just ask Orton.

This is the Truth I've been begging for since he came back and I'm really impressed. To think Scott Keith would rag on the WWE for a never ending series of Orton/Cena battles and then act like Truth getting a shot is a sign of decline kind of grinds my gears.

How come All Stars Miz gets an eight pack of abs but All Stars Piper has the physique of a WCW Saturday Night Jobber? All the other character models make you think this fictional super awesome universe where Andre the Giant can wrestle The Rock has never of a wellness policy.

After seeing Miz and Del Rio cower to an aged retired Austin (the second is especially ridiculous because Alberto is one of the few guys post the aforementioned wellness policy who is visibly bigger than Austin) it was nice to see Punk swat him down verbally.

Watched the promo with Austin/Punk again. What was the deal with Punk's comment to Andy? It was something to the effect of:

"You won Tough Enough? How many of your friends did too??"

Went over my head. Was he insinuating that all the Tough Enough kids were gonna get jobs anyway?

P. sure he meant Andy wasn't tough enough to win Tough Enough, so he would've needed help to do so.

Oh god I believe comic book types are the SMARKIEST people in the world. I used to love reading Superboy. Never liked comics but this one was fun!
