The match can also be deemed a no contest if both wrestler fail to get up after a 10 count. Aside from the regular stairs outside the ring, stairs will also be present inside the ring. The stairs inside the ring are smaller however allowing for more throwing action.

What an interview. I'm taking it all with a bit of salt, but most of the stuff in that interview seems plausible enough to be true. At this point I am just waiting for the next podcast and to see if Vince even responds on the Monday podcast with Stonecold (doubt it, but would wreck the whole "No Bullshit" angle they were going for).

This probably won't make me cancel my subscription or kinda follow whats been happening on Raw (partly because I wasn't watching during CM Punk's run with the company), but does make me wish that WWE get their act together in terms of planning out their stories and treating their wrestlers way better.

Krazy™ Predictions

1. Cena will interfere in the Wyatt tag team match, and will get injured which will get hammed up in the championship match.

2. Barret will not compete, but will show up mid match and get back at Swagger.

3. The Demon Kane will initially help/not target Orton, but when Orton seems to be the only one capable of climbing the ladder, Kane will turn on him.

I already donate to the raid cause. It's called my annual subscription fee.

Huh, Payback was better than I thought it was gonna be. Mind you I set the bar low, but still pleasantly surprised nonetheless. Here are some rambly thoughts.

El Torito vs Hornswaggle II was harmless fun.

I really didn't dig Sheamus vs Cesaro. Was expecting more from that match, and the ending was laaame.

I liked really liked the wrestling inn Rhodes Bros. vs Rybaxle, and it seems like the Rhodes Bros. are finally not tag team?

I am starting to get tired of hearing Lana. Its always "something, something Russia is greatest country, and shoutouts to Puttin yo." While I am Ok with Russev being the equivalent of Zangief, get him a better manager.

I actually enjoyed the Russev vs Big-E match. A little short, but I guess they needed to keep it that way to make Russev look like Zangief.

I really wanted to see a Kofi vs Bo Dallas match. :/

RVD vs BnB was pretty meh. RVD landed his trademark moves, which is cool I guess. But I wasn't feeling the rest of the stuff that was going on in the ring.

As soon as I saw Brie Bella come out with D. Bryan, I knew a slap or two would be fired with her quitting. Pretty much went as expected, though the snipe at the CM Punk chant made me giggle.

Wyatt vs Cena was waaay better then I though it was gonna be. While the actual wrestling was pretty bland (its Cena and Usos, what did you expect) the tables, chairs, and other props made that match way better than it should have any right to be. Hopefully this ends that feud.

Alicia Fox vs Paige was terrible. Charlotte vs Natalya spoiled me rotten and I thought the WWE finally got their act together with their Divas matches. I want to see what the hype over Paige is about ;_;

Man Evolution vs The Shield was messy in a bad way. The camera work at the beginning with them splitting was really hard to watch. Then it slowed down hard. Then Seth Rollings decided to go for an encore of Extreme Rules by jumping off a tall place. After that, the match was fine. This match kinda underdelivered for me.

Also, #Bluetista is now a thing.

I have network, so I might as well have the ppv playing, even if its in the background while I do something else. The build up has been pretty meh, but hopefully the matches are decent. I hope they wrap up shield/evolution, or take it in a different direction. I also hope that they wrap up Cena/Wyatt, for pretty obvious reasons.

As a person who got right back into watching wwe wrestling with the network right before wrestlemania, I can't say I have been too disappointed so far. I kinda knew what I was signing up for, and what I am watching seems to be better than the last time I watched wrestling (around 2007ish).

I agree that it is not the best implemented change. The big reason I don't like it is because that notification was consistently used for live shows forever. I would be OK with the change if there was something different between live shows and videos instead of the little play icon (maybe a different color?).

However, the thing that confused me is the phrasing, "video is live." To me that sounded like a live show was on right now instead of a video being available. That irritated me more than it probably should have.

Its been dead, mentioning it makes the situation worse

If it's dead, then how does the situation worsen?

at the very minimum it doesn't make the situation any better by mentioning/asking about the likelihood of new ERs.

It could inspire others to create their own Endurance Runs and galvanize the community around such an event. In that sense, it could make the situation better.

You know what, I like that style of thinking and I wish it worked out that way. But the point you raised avoids the current problem and runs into a completely different one. People aren't asking for community ERs (We had a couple of good ones that I watched for a while). When the community made ERs, they were largely ignored, because it wasn't Vinny/Jeff making them. Ersatz ERs have not had a good track record on galvanizing the GB community, as much as I wish they would. The result from that? You now have community ERs that are largely ignored, and a thing that reminds people that new Vinny/Jeff ERs are not coming.

People specifically want another Vinny/Jeff ER (case in point OP). That specific horse has been dead, dead, dead.

EDIT: Deleted words for grammar.
