    I just want to see if Punk can improve his speedrun and do the whole cycle of debut, title feud, injury, meltdown within a month this time.

    Actually if he could get fired the same night he debuts, that would be the best outcome.

    Worst case scenario I think he can struggle through to Wrestlemania before getting mad he's not main eventing.

    Give me Punk and Cody losing a triple threat to Roman in the main event when the Rock makes the save, then refuses to show up again for any buildup until their (theoretical) main event next Wrestlemania, leading to a massive tantrum from Punk. And, I don't know, Cody decides to wrestle with one entire leg in a cast, just to show how dedicated he is (to continuing to lose to Roman for another year).

    Seriously, I can't believe that Rhea Ripley and Paul Heyman had a verbal confrontation and Rhea was the clear winner. I didn't think she had much more room to be elevated, but she left that segment a bigger deal than she entered it.

    She's money, she's a force, she's on track to be "face of the company" level... and she's in her mid-20s.

    The only upside to Punk returning to WWE for me would be maybe opening the door for AJ Lee to make a one-night-only Royal Rumble appearance. Because it feels like that's something she would have wanted to do back in the day but never had the chance. Not sure what her feelings about it are now, though.

    That might almost make people care about that title Rollins has.

    If it's true what the commentators say, and you can't substitute wrestling with any amount of other training: then:

    Has Roman's cardio gone to hell?

    I dunno, when he wrestles he sure as fuck doesn't seem to have lost a step or anything.

    His last match was 1) two months ago and 2) not particularly well-received, so I'll continue to have my doubts.

    Yeah I personally love the look of full sprint shotgun dropkicks like that, but I always wonder what the injury risk of taking them is. But then again I dunno how much more impact taking one of those is compared to just flopping on the mat or taking a powerbomb or some other shit.

    People shit on Punk because they're right to and it's funny but I wouldn't say he NEVER had a successful run. His WWE tenure proved that guys from that turn of the millennium indie scene could work in WWE and paved the way for Danielson and Rollins and everybody else only us weirdos who were watching CHIKARA and PWG back in the day knew about. He was absolutely a catalyst for changing things from OVW and FCW guys who wrestle like default create a wrestlers to the way things are now. The Batistas and Cenas stand out from the crowd as home grown talents because they are a rarity. For the most part it was generic tall guys wrestling the Mid-Atlantic style running training drills. Lock-up, Irish whip, drop down, leapfrog, cross body, yawn because it's not the 1950s and this isn't an exciting new take on anything and both guys are linebackers or bodybuilders who move at the speed of smell. By comparison Punk hit ECW and was immediately on par with some of their most exciting young talent like Kofi Kingston and light years ahead of all the second and third generation stars WWE was pushing.

    But he's also a victim of his own success not only because money activated his obnoxious douche gene but because now every roster is filled top to bottom with workrate workhorses who can drop pipebombs of their own. There has been a literal generation between when CM Punk started wrestling and now. It's one thing to be a dick about being the best in the world and another to be a dick in a world where a lot of people are better.

    Punk was a dick before, it was just he was a dick to people nobody liked so it was funny.

    He was a dick before, he was never a constantly-paranoid one until WWE sent him his termination papers the exact day and location of his wedding

    That feels like I'm blaming them for his behavior but honestly it's a complete night and day in personality change between before that year and after that year that I don't know what else could have possibly caused it so suddenly. Paranoia wasn't a big thing for him before that, and now it's part of every big move of his

    I had no clue where the mystery partner thing was going. A new face/call-up wouldn't have realistically held weight vs Lashley/Profits, but I couldn't think of anyone else to fit the bill. Guess Backlash went even better than it seemed.

    Stardom has had some of THE most contact and solid wrestling I've seen all year. Also one of their champions does everything in their power to not wrestle, it's great.

    So did FTR have to drop the titles because FTR Gun has upcoming legal problems? Or was it just time?

    Kinda sad a 60+ year old Terry Funk was more graceful.

    John Cena playing Ricky Morton is an odd call but the correct one.
