I never liked Jeff Hardy at all as a singles wrestler. Everything he did when he came back around '07-'09 was terrible. I especially hated when they decided to put the title on him. God, those Smackdowns with him and Triple H, ugh. So boring.

Hardy was the most popular wrestler in the world for a good chunk of time during his last WWE run. They would have been crazy not to capitalize on that by putting the title on him. Granted they royally screwed up his booking after that, but they always do.

As an update, WWE supposedly announced at the taping that Bad News Barrett was officially removed from Money in the Bank.

Fucking Swags.

From WWE.com istself: "As of yet, no official determination has not been made yet in terms of Barrett's participation in Sunday's Money in the Bank Contract Ladder Match."

Why is everyone so shocked when this happens? The same thing happened last year.

Because it seems like there is very little coming out this year now. Theres the annualized franchises like Call of Duty and Assassin's Creed, but besides Destiny, Evolve, and Far Cry 4, what else is coming out? I know I'm exaggerating in saying there is only 5 games coming out this year, but it really feels like next to nothing is coming out.

Tonight's Raw is being taped from England right now and Daniel Bryan got stripped of the title.

No, he didn't. Here is what actually happened: "Stephanie McMahon delivered a promo in which she said we need an active WWE World Heavyweight Champion. She said she is thinking about stripping Daniel Bryan of the title. She said she wants him to drop the title himself next week because it's best for business..."

So Bryan will be on Raw next week and they will make a decision as to what happens.

Thanks a lot :( remember to use spoiler blocks next time please :(

Whoops, totally slipped my mind.

Man, that handspring off the ropes...except he doesn't even handspring, his hands don't touch the mat. :o (Maybe this is pretty common for Lucha, I don't know, but consider me impressed :P )

Saw that earlier on wreddit. I didn't even notice it until someone pointed it out in the comments. That is ridiculous. I should really start watching NXT.

WWE announced that Stone Cold Steve Austin will be at WrestleMania, but they haven't said for what. I'm expecting some kind of backstage segment (I mean, if he was going to be an enforcer in the main event they would have advertised it beforehand).

if the sheets are to be believed the wwe were apparently trying to get CM punk back for mania, stone cold has apparently been saying continually that cm punk will be back for mania. maybe cm punk will come back with austin as a manager? im sure the wwe would want austin to come back in some capacity and he cant exactly wrestle right now

Austin is in great shape. He has stated numerous times that he could wrestle for another 2 years if he really wanted to. He has just never been presented with anything that was compelling enough worth wrestling.

If only they went to AMC you better believe the days of PG would be over it seems like none of their are lol. It makes it seems like it might be a good channel for them, and they get away from Bonny Hammer finally.

I doubt they would ever abandon the youth demographic like that.

If their history is anything USA is not keeping them from not being PG.

Exactly. USA Network is not the reason why the show is PG. The show is PG because of its advertisers. Moving to another network will have nothing to do with WWE's advertising deals.

also, AMC is interested in Raw now and that has spiked WWE's stock up to $30.

The WWE's stock was about $8 at this time last year...

I am kicking myself for not investing in WWE last year.

All this talk about how bad Lockdown was makes me really excited to catch the replay on /wooo/ today. right now.

In other wrestling news, if any of you were wondering if it is really difficult to get into a good wrestling school, I can now tell you that it isn't (provided you apply far enough in advance). Assuming that nothing horrible happens to me (or more importantly, my deposit before it arrives), I will be attending the Storm Wrestling Academy this coming January. So if any of you are seriously considering doing this, don't be shy about applying. I was pretty upfront about my lack of athletic history and that didn't end up being an issue.

Congrats. I am jealous. Out of curiosity, how old are you? Best of luck.
