This is like Darryl Strawberry winning "Celebrity Apprentice," then becoming a Fortune 500 CEO.



Has anyone improved this much on the job since Trish Stratus? I'm seriously asking.

I always knew The Miz was a WWE mark from watching "The Real World: Back to New York" as an impressionable college student but never in a million years did I think he would actually become a relatively solid professional wrestler.

I think Striker gets away with a lot of crap (especially on the net), because he always references pop culture ... which oddly enough is a Simmons trait. Striker really is Captain Obvious, but he is better than most color guys we've gotten over the last ten years other than Heyman and Taz.

I will take Striker any day of the week to host the show by himself at this point. Grisham has gotten better, but he like Cena have the same problem when is that I feel they use a fake voice instead of their real voice at times and not in the "I'm mocking you kinda way." He was coming up with some classics at Mania like Mad Dog Slam for Orton. King and Cole just kinda stood by at times. Cole is killing the product which was nice to have people cut promos as well as little video shorts last night, because it took from the ear bleeding sound that comes out of Cole's mouth. I don't know why people hate Striker, yeah sometimes he says stuff that is out of there, but at least he is trying which is more then I can say for King.

King just needs someone to play off of. Like he does with Ross. Cole is good, but not when he's under pressure. Striker is absolutely wretched

I was feeling sorry for Lawler, because he knew he was in the middle of a great match (UT/HBK ), some very good matches (pretty much everything else) and had a nothing to work with but hyperbole and an idiot

And JR was right there in the cheap seats! Not laughing last, as Vince made a ton of dough off this regardless of who called what. But I'm thinking JR has to get off on everyone telling him he should have called it - maybe someone will have the sense to do an alt commentary on future DVD releases

EDIT

Tracker: Has anyone improved this much on the job since Trish Stratus? I'm seriously asking.

Good point. Miz is rocking and probably 3rd or 4th (Punk, Jericho...Edge would jump to #2 if he turns, Batista is in there, unless he turns, again, so I guess that's top 5) - on the list

Which makes me glad they didn't give him that win over Cena and push a jerkoff to the moon. Now he's had time to become a PRICK. Which was in him, but not as a flunky

Same way with Jericho. I still don't like him, but he's been awful fucking great since he came back. As a PRICK. A punk is a punk. Unless you are Punk, then you rule. Samoan Joe needs to get in on this SES, and now

Also also: for some reason he thinks Batista has been a championship mainstay in the last 5 years, and John Cena has done a bunch of nothing.

Batista championship time in the last 5 years: 37 days WWE Championship, 507 days World Heavyweight Championship
Cena championship time in the last 5 years: 863 days WWE championship, 105 days World Heavyweight Championship

I was under the impression that JR might not be able to talk all that well after his last episode. I'd be surprised if he were off the air for any other reason.

Finally watched this and thought it was a much better show than I've read. It's not an all time classic WM, but at least twenty times better than last year's.

The opener was worthless but seemed like a big deal and just seeing that huge crowd and the cool entrance set was worth it.

Money in the Bank was fun even if a lot of it didn't make sense and there weren't as many 'holy shit' moments as usual. I guess they answered how you can have a ladder match with guys that have never had one before, just don't have them do anything stupid.

The triple threat was decent and did a good job of getting Orton even more over, but I wish Dibiase got 'Priceless' as his song back and Rhodes stuck with the Legacy song, because Rhodes' theme song is nowhere near as good as 'Priceless'. I bet Orton gets a much more prominent role next year.

Vince/Bert was ok, I did think it ran a little long but I liked the angle of Bert screwing Vince and I think that was the best possible thing to do to end that angle. and they finally are working on getting the Hart Dynasty over, so expect Smith on RAW after the draft.

HHH/Sheamus is actually my match of the night I think. I loved the buildup video, probably my 2nd favorite of all time now, and thought the match was excellently worked considering how limited the two are mobility wise. Very hard hitting and some unique counters and near falls. Can't believe HHH kicked out of the big boot. These two work very well together.

Punk/Rey was a lot of fun but I can't believe Vince/Bert got more time, probably the most inexcusable thing all night.

Divas match was fine, I loved the tribute to Eddie and thought that was sweet of her. Considering he was such a jokester, he'd probably have gotten a kick out of it.

Cena/Batista have good chemistry but I didn't think this match had enough of a 'big match' feeling for some reason. It's like they were going through the motions and there weren't enough near falls. Rock/Austin, this was not.

HBK/Taker was better than last year's, I thought, which I found to be a terribly overrated match. This one was surprisingly decent and kept me on my toes, no small feat considering I really don't like either one of them. There were WAY too many near falls on Taker's part though, and HBK kicking out of two chokeslams, a Last Ride, and a Tombstone makes no sense at all. If he was heel, that wouldn't happen. Decent match though.

Overall I found it to be a pretty enjoyable show and I'd watch it again next year probably.

RE: Bill Simmons and Striker- Tonight on Superstars, Striker fired back. He talked about the guys Croft and Baretta looked up to or something like that, and he listed Justin Bieber, Todd Grisham and Bill Simmons, but added, "but no one seems to really know who he is, so..."

I don't know about hilarious, but it did make me realize that it has got to suck getting trashed on a whole different level than just wrestling boards.

He might have made Simmons's year. He's been mentioned on a WWE show.
