Just watched this weeks Main Event and Xavier Woods makes a great manager. Seeing Kofi and Big E show some aggression was really refreshing. Shame they had to beat up on Slater Gator.

Awesome stuff. Gonna have to give the doc a read later today.

It didn't help that when Sheamus pointed at the IC title, Miz was clearly in the shot lying on the ground by the announce table.

I was so hoping when Sheamus pointed outside, he pointed at the Miz as to say "listen Miz is going to screw both of us, let's both of us go out through the middle rope, grab him and beat the stupid out of him fella". But instead faces fight because FOIGHTIN SPIRIT FELLA and Hollywood Miz rides again.

That's what I thought they were doing too until the camera shot of the title. That wasn't the only spot it happened though. I first noticed it on an elimination to the far side of the ring when Miz was lying by the steps. There was another shot shortly after when someone got eliminated in the same spot and you can see Miz run out of the corner of the frame. They made it too obvious that the ending was going to go down that way. Especially since he ran in and slid out enough times that the commentators had to mention it.

I still don't see why they stick with the Usos as Tag champs. They can work a good match, but they just aren't interesting to me at all.

As for the Battle Royal, they overused the Miz sliding out. When I saw him do it the first time I already knew how the match was going to end and it took a decent amount of my interest away.

Poor Cesaro, but at the same time does this means that they actually have plans for Heath?

I agree with everyone saying Bray needed that win. Hopefully they give him a big win at SummerSlam or else they are dangerously close to destroying one of the best gimmicks they've had in a while.

The main event match was pretty good. They made Reigns look like a beast (though the triple head kicks around the ring were pretty damn contrived) and actually made Kane look decent to. I actually think Orton may have looked the worst simply because he was barely involved in the last half of the match.

So much for the "silent retirement" of one of the belts though. Looks like we have to wait for the new logo belts to be made before it goes back to one belt.

@milkman: All I've seen of the new ECW stuff is the OSW Reviews of the two One Night Stand PPV. I'm most curious in checking some of it out mainly for the full picture on Punk's path in the company. He came in shortly after I stopped watching and then left shortly after I returned. Outside of some "best of" stuff and the pipebombs I missed the whole Punk era.

@drx25: Well damn, that ruins my Krazy prediction of Sandow vs Rose. Gotta change that too now.

Updated Krazy prediction:

3) Since Battleground is in Tampa FL, Damien Sandow will impersonate the greatest celebrity to come from Tampa...... John Cena.

I just started a few weeks ago and it is a mixed bag for me so far. I enjoy playing against the computer, though after getting a few additional cards they become pretty easy (I haven't bumped up to expert ai yet though) and I enjoy playing in the arena for the sealed deck nature of it. The first time I entered Play mode I played about 10 Casual games. 3 players either timed out or quit and the other 7 were all playing nearly identical Priest decks (they were different user names, I checked). If Play mode is just going to be a bunch of people using recommended builds from the "Pros" all the time then I will most likely avoid playing that mode at all unless I need to complete some dailies to gain gold for Arena. The whole point of collecting cards and building a deck is kind of ruined if the majority of people just play the same deck.

After listening to the Powerbombcast I feel like I need to watch December to Dismember just for context of what that ECW reboot was all about. I was out of wrestling at the time and remember hearing it was horrible, but I've never watched any of it to know for myself. Not sure if I could take the challenge of being sober while watching it though.

@milkman: I'm beginning to love just seeing the snippets that people cut out of TNA without having to watch it. Who knows, maybe I'll watch an episode or two now that they are switching the ring back just to see what the hell is going on.
