@chaser324: It really is the worst. It was actually pretty hilarious when Austin first started it, because he would then find a way to rephrase what he had just said in reaction to the "What?!" chant. See, that was cool, because it would add another layer of crowd interactivity. The way it is now is simply obnoxious. Just like those CM Punk chants.

Tyson Kidd is the goddamn best in NXT. He's such a fantastic dickhead heel. I lose it every time he talks about have better things to do, i.e. taking care of his three cats.

So apparently Kenta's new name is a tribute to Captain New Japan. That's pretty rad.

Shovel Man is looking to dig the WWE out of its current hole. I love it!

Ya boy yotsume is back at it, and with a vengeance it seems! No longer do you have to email him, for he has set up a storefront! He has a lot of New Japan merch that won't be on prowrestlingtees since he stocks stuff like towels (Hoodie towels. Hoodie freaking towels), belt buckles, plushies. It's pretty rad if you want the real deal.

It's a god damn travesty they don't have a Minoru Suzuki hoodie towel. He's come out with a towel over his head as his entrance since forever.

If there is one on the official NJPW store, then it will likely be added. They just added a page for Ishii, so the catalogue is still growing.

@spiritof: It makes me so freaking happy to see how crazy over Ambrose is. The pop he'll get when he comes back is going to be amazing.

You know, I was all heated about tonight's RAW and all of the ridiculous Cena stuff, until I realized that I was being worked big time. Of course Cena no sells. Of course he squashes Wyatt. Of course he's tossing people around. He has to do all of these things to make his second one-sided beat down at the hands of Lensar mean even more. Then, and only then, will we go full Rocky 3 mode. Cena will track down a now reclusive Daniel Bryan Danielson, who then trains Cena in the ways of the professional wrestler. I'd buy that for . . . 9.99.

@kishinfoulux: You can hardly compare Bryan's comebacks to Reigns'. Like others have said, just about every face in the company has to wrestle like that, but in terms of sheer quality? No, it's not the same, as Reigns can't offer much of anything outside of that comeback or hot tag. At least not yet.

That Brock/Cena match was the best. Kudos to Cena for making Brock look like the final boss he should be.

Like others have mentioned, I am also a bit concerned about the lack of challengers for the title as a result of this. I still don't think Reigns is ready, and having him (or anyone else for that matter) in an even slightly competitive match with Brock makes no sense. I'm willing to give Reigns more time to find his footing, but it's becoming increasingly clear to me that everything that made me think Reigns might have "It" was due to him only being 1/3rd of an amazing faction like The Shield; what he can do works great as part of something larger, but on his own . . . it's just not interesting in the slightest.
