      We'll probably have a better idea today, Jericho was tweeting yesterday that Fozzy will announce their U.S. tour dates some time today.


    Yeah, and what's the possibility they coincide with WWE's tour dates?


Fozzy is an opener on the Rockstar Uproar tour (with ugh Godsmack/Staind/Shinedown) and it apparently runs from mid-August until the end of September...

If they were playing their own shows, I'd actually go see 'em... Dohwell...

By inviting kids into the ring to dance, Brodus Clay may now be the new Junkyard Dog ...

But I like what they're doing with him ... heck, my son, age 6, loves him ... and at the end of the day, that's what WWE is shooting for with this guy.

As long as he's not the new PN News.

Oh, I'm gonna remember this statement in 3 weeks. I don't see them doing Punk vs. Bryan last, and nothing else would fit the bill for a real main event.

Terrible Raw. Layla gets nothing, Kane and Khali sucked, and no great matches at all (the tag title switch was the best match and it was good at best). Listen, I know that WWE should give plenty of recaps to their big storylines throughout the show, but as a fan I was hating just how many times they recapped Brock and HHH.

I was gonna say, we're only two months removed from Cena and Kane in an ambulance match going on last after two Elimination Chamber title matches.

In an interesting stat, out of the last six PPVs, only one had a title match on last. To be fair, the only one that seemed like a stretch was Cena/Kane at Chamber. Besides the Rumble, the others all featured either Rock or Brock.

If they play on Johnny Ace's New Zealand lineage and make it a good old fashioned Coward Waves Flag Match, it has to be the main event.

My kids really enjoy watching wrestling, but after a few minutes their attention will wander no matter what they're watching. However, as soon as Brodus' music hits, they drop what they're doing and sit back down to watch what he'll do.

Tensai is not intimidating at all. I can't figure out if it's because of the faux-Asian hand gestures, the costume, the ring gear, the ridiculous "tattoos", or just because it's Asian Albert. I imagine it's a combo of all of the above. Whatever it is, he is terrible.

Khali really does need to retire. It's a nice gesture that Vince wants him to make as much money before he is forced to retire (if that is the case). It would be a nicer gesture if Vince just paid him to stay home. He gets no reaction, which is sad enough, and I am genuinely concerned that his hips will explode when he takes a bump.

It looked like we might get dueling "YES" chants from Bryan and Punk. I would like to see that.

Black Ref messed up more than Jericho.

I enjoyed the selling of the arm break from HHH. Not the aftermath as much, but the actual arm "snap" and immediate reaction was close to perfection.



It’s so hard for me to sit back here in this studio, looking at a guy out here, hollering my name!

You’re talking to the Rolex wearin, diamond ring wearin, kiss stealin, WOOOO wheelin dealin, limousine ridin, jet flyin son of a gun. And I'm having a hard time holding these alligators down!

They recap at 9:30, 10:00, and 10:30 every Raw just in case you're just tuning in.

Seriously, I DVR the show most nights and the recap happens after the first half hour, after an hour, and after an hour and a half. I also fast forward through the recaps.

Tensai would be fine if he wasn't swimming in the same waters as Ryback, who is also getting a monster push but as a face, and Brock. Instead he just comes off as some third banana who changed his name from "Dick Piercing" to "The Guy who cooks at Benihana".

I was totally expecting Brock to be the final beat the clock winner after some 6 second uber squash. Bryan is a superb choice, and if they could stretch a Punk/Bryan feud, all the better.

Eventually Cena will start getting the mixed reactions again.

I like how they finally put the Tag Titles on some guys the fans actually react to.

Yeah, the actual part where the arm "broke" was nicely done. The part where he kept calmly saying "It's a clean break, I think it's a clean break" to Big Show over and over to make sure the camera picked it up on the way back to the ring, not so much. I'm most interested in knowing whether Big Show's "You got some balls on you, man!" was scripted by HHH for Big Show, or if Show is just savvy enough to know it's his job to point out how badass HHH is in that scenario.

Punk/Bryan is the best outcome to the Beat the Clock tournament not only because it sets up the best match, but it also keeps both Punk and Bryan out of the line of fire, whereas I'd normally expect them to be the guys who get picked first in the "Oh, yeah, gotta rebuild Brock" line of thought. Though I really, really do think if they can start to turn Bryan (via Del Rio), Bryan vs. Lesnar would have the potential to completely catch them off guard and be an incredibly hot placeholder feud for a PPV cycle. That's literally the #1 match-up I want to see in the company right now.

Has there been any backstory behind Truth and Kofi teaming up on any of the B-Shows yet? I'm not against it, just curious if there was ever a reason given to how they got together.

Brock*-related Character Change For Tensai I Want To See: we eventually learn that he never actually went to Japan at all, he just said he did and bought all his Japanese gear at a duty-free shop or an anime convention and spent the last eight years at home learning that "milk" is "milku" in Japanese.

And by "building up" the Usos, you mean "jobbing them at every turn," right?

I never said anything about how the Usos have been used so far...

If all penises (penii?) looked like Albert, there'd be a hellava lot more lesbians in the world.
