    He's in the middle of a slow burn heel turn that they are actually handling right (so far). So it's interesting. If you think this is bad, you should see the heel turns they didn't handle well in your absence (which is mostly all of them).

    i'm not talking wrestling talent. i honestly haven't seen enough of dude to say shit about that.

    it's just...

    his theme music is corny as balls...and his...what the hell is his gimmick even? dude who gets excited and shouts "YES" a bunch of times when he wins? everything about his wrestling persona is boring. a dude with the kind of wrestling ability he has should be a heel belittling everyone around him for not having his talent.

    You're right. The best wrestler in the world really should try harder.

    And I'm sure that Hero will do, however we shouldn't hold Daniel to that kind of level.

    The idea is that he is treating every little thing as a superbowl level accomplishment. When the reality is that he's a lucky little shit. I agree that I would prefer to see a more arrogant asshole type(which is something he pulled off well as ROH champion) but this character is corny intentionally. I'm not sure it's the right way to take him but I would say he is doing well with what he's being given.

    He's being booked as a guy who's worked hard for everything he's gotten, but never gets any real credit in WWE

    Then he cashed in MITB on a helpless Big Show, won the belt

    And the fame has gotten to him. Now he's hitting on Divas, bragging about how tough he is. He thinks he's big stuff.

    He's supposed to be this super-face, who finally won the big gold, and now all the attention he's gotten and fame he's gotten from it is slowly corrupting him. Like when he retained his belt last week, by DQ, that's when he first did the egotistical YES shouting. So that stuff is literally brand new, not even a full week old.

    Actually he started the shouting yes thing last week on Raw, when he beat Cody by rollup.

    He's no Joey Ryan, that much is for sure.

    Seriously though, the transition from "bland" technical wrestling virtuoso to heel persona should always take some time, so now might not be the best time to pass judgment on him.
    Unless that judgment is "Wow, this guy isn't as good as Joey Ryan." in which case you pass away.

    I think at this point the best we can hope for is that Jeff Hardy is attending wrestling shows sober. Anything else is pretty much pissing into the wind.

    Psh

    The best I can hope for from Jeff is that he can get out of his car/limo/plane and walk without falling into the middle of a crowded road

    Remember that clip from that abysmal PPV match where he fought Sting?

    The guy had trouble even standing, let alone physically moving

    He couldn't even decide where to throw his T-shirt, so he just wound up awkwardly dropping it

    You know the funny thing about what happened with Clay tonight? The EXACT SAME THING happened to him 5 YEARS AGO in Deep South Wrestling. He showed up as a killer, then about 6 months later he adopted a Dusty Rhodes-style character who danced. If you would have told me back in 2007 the same shit will happen in 2012... Man.

    The show sounded good other than the dumbass crowd. Seriously where was the show held this week?

    YES YES YES

    I thought Texas usually had hot crowds? Oh well, hope Clay eventually get's over anyway. For all the talk about how generic wrestlers are nowadays it's nice to see a completely unique character come out of the woodwork.

    Well maybe not "unique" but at least colorful.

    Funkasaurus should pull by in the Funkmobile, give his ladies a WTF look, then keep driving.

    Jericho powerwalks by, stops and stares at them still trying to fix the tire

    Looks like he's about to say something

    Then stops, the jacket lights up, and he powerwalks away smiling the whole time

    This is hilarious.

    This whole Raw sounded awesome. I watched the Brodus Clay vid and I was diggin' it. Especially those boots fashioned to look like a pair of dress shoes with spats.

    Not sure where this Raw was held but they should boycott that city for being so pathetic.

    R Troof & Ricardo was great. I love how R Troof knows how to play off the crowd. He's like the Black Kurt Angle, He's really good at doing in ring promos unlike some other stars... Even Ricardo Rodriguez has better in ring promo talents than Orton & Cena combined

    I just watched my DVR copy of Raw. Please take Corpus Christi off the circuit, they don't deserve anything more than a house show with that disgraceful display.

    Cheer, boo, do fucking something.

    Most of the rest of you have already stated my opinions about the show, and I'd be parroting responses. What's the over/under on number of Raw appearance before Jericho actually talks? I'll set it at 4.
