I shall start an internet petition to move him back to SmackDown. It shall be victorious.

MVP is facing Kofi Kingston and Matt Hardy for the US Title in a triple threat on Superstars this Thursday.

MVP's promo that he would challenge Randy Orton for the WWE Title was disregarded.

Vince bidding against himself may have made some sense if they just had Trump slip in the line 'Well, Ted offered to pay me more than that'. That could have caused Vince to think DiBiase, which would have added another layer to the Legacy angle, or it could have meant Turner, which would have had the desired impact of driving Vince bonkers that Billionaire Ted would have his baby.

I think the problem with a free Raw brand is how badly Raw is right now. Vince should have shown a more competitive side and told Donald it was to make Raw free, but Smackdown/ECW will be still better shows anyway. I do think eventually the free Raw would have stopped. Eventually, a wrestler is going to bring up the paycheck situations and maybe Vince buying most of the talent away from Raw. I do agree with redsoxnation, if Donald had brought up Turner or Heyman, Vince would have tried to buy it back. In the end, this really blew up in their faces once again. I understand you want to get some publicity, but you would think after how badly they handled the Nuggets near the end, they would learn their lesson about good and bad publicity.

Before I start, I read this somewhere this mroning. I think it was PWI, but I can't find it now. Anywho:

Apparently, after Vince said last week on Raw that Trump was buying Raw, Tuesday morning, WWE stocks dropped 7%. Vince & Co. immediately had to send out a press release saying that the "sale" was part of the "show". I guess this did not set well with the SEC and there may be legal proceedings being brought against Vince & Co. for this "sale", show or not, cuz it messed with public stockholders.

Hence, the fasttrack to Vince "buying back" Raw, and everything clustered into one show.

I just Googled it and found this: http://www.foxbusiness.com/search-results/m/23125393/sec-s-wwe-smackdown.htm

Did anyone here attend the show and actually get their money back?

I always thought that with no commercials, there'd be a bit more wrestling...but eh.

Anyone gonna miss Santina?

No, not really. I do sometimes miss heel Santino, though. I thought Glamarella had more mileage than they let it run for.

Thats what i was thinking after tonight as well. The Miz-Cena angle is playing out like Jericho-Goldberg SHOULD have went way back when. In fact, I think Jericho describes his idea in his book, and this seems to be progressing along those lines. Maybe Jericho is involved with creative, or trying it on?

Well, turns out I didn't even get as many tix as I was supposed to, so I had to give 'em to the people I brought, then slink down the street and watch the show on TV from the Stadium View Bar & Grill. :-( (Of course, since they were comps, the listed price was $0.00.) So, no. ;-)

We're told that credit card purchases will be refunded automatically, and cash purchases can be refunded at the Resch Center box offices this week.

Show was a legit sellout. The normally tarped-off upper decks of the Resch were full of butts in seats, I'm informed. People were still trying to buy tix at the box office after the show started. Saw one kid with his two mark belts crying outside the arena, 'cause he couldn't get in. Poor guy.

BTW, the guy taking the ladder bump in the HHH/Orton event was former NWA Wisconsin heavyweight champ Mason Quinn. How dude doesn't have a developmental deal yet is beyond me...he's that good.

As for Santina...LOVED LOVED LOVED how Santino popped in from the other side of the frame after Santina/Vince split. F'n cartoon logic...but funny. (If I had a nickel for every time I've schlepped a camera down that same tunnel...)

Holy cow, Big Show goes over in a RAW main event?

Also...Cena in John Deere gear? Seriously? What's farm-esque about West Newbury, MA?

And did anybody else notice NOBODY took a bite of the KFC Grilled Chicken on-air?

I may be in the minority here but I really enjoyed the Cena/Miz promo. The idea that all of this taunting and goofiness eventually leads to physical pain, that at the end of the line there are severe consequences to be paid, lets the angle become serious. And that to me is key to making Miz more than a comedy player. Cena took him seriously and by extension we take him seriously.

That's the first thing I thought, John Deere looking gear. The second thing I thought was that he was trying to suck up to the crowd by wearing the Pack's colors.

I don't know if it was planned to be Viking-esque to counter Cena's green and yellow, but I loved the purple in The Miz's hair.

My guess is his new merch comes in city specfic sports team colors.

I liked the promo, but no selling a sucker punch and openly laughing at him is taking him seriously?

I like the idea on no commercials. Watched the show. Enjoyed it. They don't need it every week, but they should do ever 4th or 8th raw commercial free. Make it a Clash of the Champions type event. This could even lower the PPV's to 8 or 6 a year. Wishful thinking I know. Being a Football(soccer) and Hockey fan I enjoy my sporting events with little commercial interuptions. But out of 2 hours 10 mins it was 44 mins of wrestling? A second try at this with no McMahon/Trump would be a way better show.

Random thoughts:

* That "crew member" was absolutely killed with that ladder. He tried to protect himself with his hand, but he completely missed and took the full brunt of the shot right on the noggin. I don't think there was any chance that was a blade job.

* King hyperbole aside, that really was a pretty sweet super kick by Mickie.

* Miz and Maryse hooking up absolutely has to happen.

Just curious, but what was the point of that crew member taking the ladder shot? I mean, most of the time when something like that happens ... there's a reason for it. I was half expecting him to knock down Triple H as he tried to get up at the end or something.

And I would agree with your line of thinking, except it presumes that WWE will actually take Miz seriously themselves. We all know...even though we hope otherwise...that he's headed for a 1 minute shoulderblock-suplex-five knuckle shuffle-FU/STFU squash by Super Cena, thus turning the meaning of the promo from "it's serious business time" to "Cena finally rolled over, smacked the Miz back down, and went back to sleep".

I imagine it's just a way to draw fans into the match, showing that these two will do anything to kill each other, etc.

That's got to be a tough assignment for a local worker though - I'm sure they told him to protect himself, but at the same time you know he's REALLY going to try and make his spot "look good".
