Man, did that Bobby Lashley push come to a screeching halt or what? One week, the guy's in the main event and in the thick of the world title chase. This week, he's jerking the curtain and starting a feud with Tatanka. TATANKA! Who did Lashley piss off?
It figures. The Blue Bloods come back to try and get the tag division going again and now Dave Taylor's probably out for months, if not for good (this was already a comeback attempt).
I believe it was ekedolphin, I'm not sure who it was exactly, but they called it. Even after Rey's departure, the memory of Eddie Guerrero continues to be exploited. And sure enough, Chris Benoit's now getting dragged into this shit.
I hope I wasn't the only one who got a kick out of Batista telling John Cena he was lame.
And finally, THE BOOGEYMAN~! is back! And he still EATS WORMS! Ok, so he's not gonna light the world up with stellar matches, but he'll at least be a consistent source of entertainment. And if he gives the Miz the worm treatment, he'll become my ALL-TIME FAVORITE WRESTLER!
Until the end of the main event, I kept wondering "Hey, did Big Show already forget that Booker turned on him last Monday?" At least he eventually remembered. Decent main event and there could be a lot of money in a Cena/Batista match someday.
TEN YEARS AGO IN WRESTLING HISTORY: OCTOBER 1996 WWF: Mankind d. Undertaker in the first ever Buried Alive match at...WWF Buried Alive. Also, Steve Austin continued his efforts to bring Bret Hart back to the ring by turning on Brian Pillman, shattering his ankle in what to this day is known as "Pillmanizing".
WCW: Hulk Hogan d. Randy Savage in a main event no one cared about, but Roddy Piper came out immediately after to end Halloween Havoc with a bang. The Outsiders won their first WCW Tag Team titles by beating Harlem Heat.

That sounds very bad. May be somebody put the brakes on because they didn't think he was ready. May be over exposed? I hope it doesn't kill him as pegged future star. EG: Ahmed Johnson. Minus the injury prone, plus the charimsa, and stuff.
With three world titles and the now-apparent rule that the Rumble winner won't necessarily be in the main event (or, last match) at Mania like Rey and Undertaker the last two years, WWE could really afford to be more creative with the Royal Rumble winner....
