On a scale of 1 to 10, how funny is it that on this thread, there's been more praise thrown at by Drew MacIntyre and Heath Slater than the guy who was in the main event at their PPV and 'stood tall' at the end?
Kevin Kelly: "Mr. Austin, would you like to comment on Wade Keller's Take that endorsing the XFL hurts your anti-authority character?"
Steve Austin: "Oh shit, he actually said that? I thought the boys in the back were ribbing me!"
Kelly: "No, he really said that. Did they tell you the part about you sitting in the stands, looking all skeptical?"
Austin: "AHAHAHAHAHAHA. Yeah... oh man that was too much."

Originally posted by kentishMaybe doubting himself now that Punk has held the belt for a year and Cena was trying to "keep his spot"? That might be giving them too much credit, and still doesn't make a lot of sense because Cena is always in the main event anyway.
Not to be all shallow and all, but isn't it possible that Cena's motivation would be "getting to have sex with AJ"? I can't speak from personal experience or anything but I feel confident sex with AJ would be A Good Thing. At the very least it would be a more preferable avenue to securing title shots than going to the trouble of convincing a bunch of kids to buy your T-shirts and action figures, or all that winning fights lark.

Originally posted by El NastioClever move on their part; Punk won't have to defend the title against Ryback at Survivor Series, which basically adds two months to his reign. But Ryback can still get his hands on Punk.
I was thinking of that as well. It does make me look with fear at the calendar, wondering when they do a real "Super show" again and give Cena a shot from out of the blue.
The Cena-AJ angle. Well the guy did ask her out (through his promos) once or twice. My idea is that they realized that GM-AJ was not as cool as 'crazy AJ in love' and they figured they'd try to recapture that. But it won't work because Cena isn't Bryan or Punk. There's no need for her to be crazy.
Basically, getting her involved with Cena in any way what so ever drags her down imo. Actually, up until they went this route I sort of figured they wanted to free her up to wrestle again, and have her be revealed as the mastermind behind the attack on kaitlyn.
Originally posted by JustinShapiroElsewhere I was challenged to create a Survivor Series 1990 card using the current roster and here are the results.
THE CHAIN GANG team captain John Cena, Kofi Kingston, Brodus Clay, and Yoshi Tatsu
THE SHOW-OFFS team captain Dolph Ziggler, The Miz, Tensai, and Johnny Curtis (w/ Vickie Guerrero and Sakamoto)
I would either have Yoshi replaced by a newly turned, vengeful, John Cena-trained Sakamoto...or turn Cena's team into UNITED CENATION and replace Brodus with Sakamoto.

THE BEST TEAM IN THE WORLD team captain CM Punk, Antonio Cesaro, Cody Rhodes, and Damien Sandow (w/ Paul Heyman)
This calls for Jeff's names: Team Hell Fed vs. Team Well Read.
And then have Brodus go down to Team Hell Fed, replacing Truth.

THE VIPERS aka RANDY'S DANDIES team captain Randy Orton, Ted DiBiase, Rey Mysterio, and Sin Cara
EL EQUIPO DE MIL DOLARES team captain Alberto Del Rio, David Otunga, Darren Young, and Titus O'Neil (w/ Ricardo Rodriguez)
Truth (with Little Jimmy in their corner) would then replace Ted Jr. on Randy's team, which would become MYSTERIOUS VOICES. Ted Jr. would then host a Survivor Series Viewing Party at The World, which no longer exists but that's his problem.
Originally posted by JustinShapiroTHE FOUR-MAN BAND team captain Heath Slater, Drew McIntyre, Jinder Mahal, and Hunico (w/ Camacho)
Also, I would still have this team called THE THREE MAN BAND, but Hunico would explicitly be referred to as "The Fourth Three Man Band" and they would explain his role on the team as playing the bicycle horn.
looking on the bright side we haven't gone back down as low as 3.1 again and the ratings seem to be holding pretty steady at around 3.4-3.3 just now. I'd fancy the Raiders/Jetskis game did a decent rating as well (dunno for sure tho)
