According to a "fan" report or someone bored enough to slow the tape down to write what the notes said. Here they are:

KRS to KPB
Innovator - Camo
2 reasons
Call out

If Call out is Cena coming out, does that mean Rock had the notes for Cena's benefit to when to expect him?



The Wee Baby Sheamus.

This is the same Jericho that accused Malenko of ripping off his moves by claiming he knew more then him. It's absolutely within his character - he's an egomaniac (at least Jericho, the character, is of course).

I forgot to mention this, but I loved seeing Jericho bust out an actual Walls of Jericho on the ramp and not some sorry ass Boston Crab. When Jericho sticks the knee in there that move looks like it could hurt, when he just does the Crab it looks mildy uncomfortable.

I like CM Punk using the Randy Savage Elbow Drop as one of his big moves, I just wish he did a better job executing it. He doesn't have to cave the guys chest in Savage style, but he could tighten that thing up in flight.

The Rock put on a ton of bulk for this match. I don't ever remember him being quite this big, but maybe he just hasn't been in so long that it just seems really big. Hopefully, it doesn't make him plod like Helmsley out there.

No it isn't. That was a lifetime ago in wrestling land. Back then, he was a crybaby heel, so it fits. But his current heel style is super serious killjoy.

We're talking about the guy who cried it wasn't fair that the fans cheered Shawn Michaels for faking a knee injury, who said Rey Mysterio was a coward for wearing a mask, and who thought Edge was selfish for getting injured, right?

It would have been nice if he could have come back earlier, so they could have played around with his odd comeback longer before feuding with Punk. That or just skip the vignettes and no talking altogether and have him spitting venom at Punk upon his return. It feels like he lost some momentum he shouldn't have already. Last night was a good step in him getting some of it back.

Let me get this straight:

Punk says he is the best. Jericho says the same thing.

Rock says he loves the WWE Universe the most. Cena says the same thing.

Triple H says he (almost) ended the streak last year. Undertaker tells him to try again (for a third fn time).

That's it? That's this years Wrestlemania?

Oh, and Sheamus will challenge for the World Title. Who? The Great White! Sheamus! Yeah, nevermind... Man, how I would love to see Bryan vs. Punk IV instead.

I think you might be over simplifying things, just a tad. Except in the case of Bryan/Sheamus, but that feud is only just beginning...

http://adf.ly/5rJTX Raw dropping from a 3.25 last week to a 3.1 rating this week with The Rock appearing is pretty surprising. I thought they did an okay job advertising him for the show last week.

I suspect a good chunk of the audience was watching the Daytona 500 --- while there was little racing, there was plenty of "holy crap, can you believe this?" drama.

Sorry for the late post. Only just got finished watching.

I thought Eve's dress was one sudden move away from ejecting her aspirations. That's probably just my inner puppy dog talking.

Cole asking Jerry if he could resist Eve and him trying to believably say "Yes". Jerry Lawler. Noted pantsman.

The fake laugh is a necessary piece of every mean girls arsenal. I'm in two minds though whether Eve's fake laugh is a little too fake and exaggerated or absolutely perfect.

The Attitude Era gave us many great gifts. Signs and chants I could probably live without. Although the PG Era has given us Twitter Trends so I should probably shut up. I wonder if the powers have ever searched on one of their trending things and feasted on the horrors inside?

I get some of the Rock hate that's been expressed. The guy had to put next to no effort in to get massive reactions. At least make him work a little bit live crowds. The I want to be part of the show too mentality I guess.

I hate when they call it 'the business'. I would love if they called it a 'sport' again. Even though it's not.

I've been aware of it for a while, but I always giggle about the FU and the STFU getting renamed for the PG Era, but the Five Knuckle Shuffle lives on. Remember kids, interfering with yourself is fine so long as you don't use any naughty words.

I was really watching the Rock's promo to see if I could catch him stealing a glance at his prompts. I couldn't, but that doesn't mean anything. I can't help but wonder if any other wrestlers use cheat notes for long promos?

To me Rock's promo felt like he put it together in the back of the limo on the way to the venue. That was probably deliberate. Even so, I'd like to know what the airline into Portland was serving for the in-flight meal. Just as well it wasn't beef stroganoff. Imagine what the Rock could have done with that!

Anyway, all irrelevant as it's all part of the bit; and the bit is good.

You're usually so happy about so many things, and THIS Wrestlemania is the thing you dislike? Wow.

And props to Lotjx for finding a way, yet again, to shoehorn in some political statement into another non politics-related discussion. Fine work.

Oh, and Raw was great. Don't diss the jacket, Punk, because that's going too far.

I think Daytona may have cut into the ratings.

Re: Mark Henry repeatedly losing as an afterthought, Jason Powell reported that when Henry got hurt in December, Vince soured on him because of his history of injuries derailing big programs they set up for him. Vince didn't think he was so hurt that he couldn't work through it, so they kept asking him to work and he wouldn't say no because he wanted to be seen as a team player who'd work through pain. This caused him to get hurt even worse, which got Henry even more upset and fed up enough that he might just quit when his contract expires, which is sooner rather than later. There were plans for Henry to turn face that have been dropped and both he and the company might be playing out the string with each other now.

I just figured that Henry was too injured to do Mania so they were having him put over guys that would make the big show.

Sickening. I hope Henry gets into Mania for his payday and leaves with his head held high.
