Originally posted by dMp Bryan-Rollins was amazing. From the kicks to the reversals, everything was great by both guys. Oh and did Bryan just do a 'chaos theory' rolling german suplex? Awesome. Just awesome.
Man, I'd sure love to wash down my Hardees Super Bacon ThickburgerTM with a cold, refreshing can of SurgeTM. Or better yet, another tremendous Daniel Bryan match. Twenty minutes of that really made the rest of the show much more palatable than it would have been otherwise, and if they're going to spend a half hour of every show building up my goodwill like that, then I'll be willing to overlook their other issues.
As a female viewer (who watches to share a common interest with her fiancé), the first thing that drew me in in 2009 was the Edge/Vickie/Big Show angle. It was amusing. I tend to pay more attention to the stuff that happens outside of the ring then what happens in it, though that's less true now than it was when I started watching.
With that said... Daniel Bryan matches always have my attention even if I have no idea what the moves are called. I was in another room for part of Raw when we watched it, but I made sure to check that I wasn't missing any Bryan action. My favorite of recent episodes was the double kicks he was giving out a few weeks ago to the Shield members.
Fast paced or cool move matches such as Bryan (or Neville on NXT) get my attention. I don't like slow matches.
Other things I like: good promos (Punk, summer of Punk, etc) and AJs craziness and awesome character development. Oh, and the Stephanie bellow did get a much deserved rewind.
Edit: the Stephanie/HHH/McMahon stuff does nothing for me.
What if they did this, NOT ONLY to make RAW look different from Smackdown.... but.... ...and this is a stretch perhaps, though interesting enough to consider.... ..What happens at Summerslam when Tazz & Cole come out to commentate?
