neither of these girls is getting out of bed tomorrow morning. You can almost believe that these two hate each other.

ok, hated this piece of booking having Gonzales come out. But I think she just murdered Knox with a top rope choke slam thought a table.

Every match tonight was amazing, the ending was amazing. NXT puts together PPV's like no other.

If anyone has the network I would strongly recommend you check out the Ruthless Aggression series that's going on right now which covers the period after WWE won the Monday Night Wars and went into the Ruthless Aggression era. Its a really interesting look at that era where WWE had no competition and stagnated.


Tonights episode covered John Cena and they're right when they say he's the most polarizing star in their history.


Its amazing to watch as it covers him from the start of his career in OVW (with guys like Orton, Batista, Lesnar and others) right to pretty much the end.


There are a lot of take away's that people might not remember. That everyone forgets that Cena was on the verge of being fired after the Kurt Angle Ruthless Aggression moment, that he was a bland wrestler in tights and that the only thing that saved him was one night during a European tour when he free styled to entertain the boys in the back and Stephanie asked him why that wasn't his character.


When Cena started to rise as the professor of thuganomics it was when WWE was bleeding talent. The Rock, Stone Cold, Lesnar and Angle all left leaving the main event level performers at next to nothing, and Cena literally carried that company.


When you watch this you learn that Cena is not only really self aware, but extremely smart. When the audience split on him he figured out how to play it, when he had detractors back stage he learned how to sell them on what he was doing.


Even his harshest critics can't deny that there has been nobody in the history of the business that as driven and determined as him and that most wrestlers just couldn't keep up with him.



There are very few champions that I would classify as extremely smart in what they do. Bret Hart was one of them, he was extremely aware of his fanbase and his character, Triple H had an undeniable understanding of the business, and more so the politics of the back. John Cena was all those things. He was the perfect package that carried the company through a extreme talent downtime.


Its a very cool special that ends when they ask John Cena about the Ruthless Agression Era and the lesson that he learned was that he completely and brutally failed at it, but that failure drove him so hard that it defined his work ethic, his creativity and he had to sit back and learn how the business really worked.

Dynamite really seems to have hit its stride over the last month and a half. That was a thoroughly entertaining show. Hangman/Omega vs. The Lucha Bros was outstanding.

Everything outside the womens division is clicking so well

The build up to the ppv has been super well done

The fact that they have clearly planned it so far ahead, with announcing dynamite matches sometimes 3-4 weeks ahead, is clearly paying off

I think the end is near for Somoa Joe, he's suffered his second concussion in a month
