I'm with you man, I miss those days, always been a Jazz and Molly Holly mark. All the best talent WWE has Diva wise (barring the awesome Natalya who never is utilized) is in NXT. Paige is great, especially to be only 20 and have such great ring awareness, and I don't mind Aubrey Marie or Sasha Banks. That match that took place last night was just dreadful though, it seemed like it was booked on the fly and no one knew what the hell was going on. This is why people don't care about the divas, because you don't take them seriously. It's so disappointing.
Any who, that RAW was awful. Seriously. Cesaro and Orton was good, but Cesaro is pretty awesome as is so I wasn't surprised. I don't mind Bo getting the win, it gives him a nice push, even though he won't win the belt. Punk was golden on the mic with his punk bitch comments, but when is he not. Now as for the rest, wtf? Tensai is a legitimate good wrestler, why the hell is he in lingerie ... again? Turn him back into Albert and call it a day, seriously. Great Khali singing ... enough said. Three members of tag teams (primetime players, cody rhodes) getting beaten down by the last two participants of the royal rumble which makes NO ONE look good. On that note, think about it, the most overprotected people on the roster were the last 4 participants in the rumble, now if that doesn't show who Vince likes I don't know what to tell you. Cena commenting that he will either face The Rock or CM Punk at Wrestlemania ... despite the fact that CM Punk had yet to ask for his rematch which happened later in the night. And finally Mr. Brock Lesnar, as happy as I am to see you I couldn't get the thought out of my head that the segment where he returned looked awfully familiar.
Oh yeah, I remember now, creative did the exact same thing last year when Taker came back. Performance evaluation, the drawn out "You're fired!" followed by the arrival of another part time star. Now there's nothing wrong with recycling a segment, the problem is not only is the entire segment the same, but it will inevitably lead to another match we just saw 6 months ago. I know, I know, we see the same matches all the time, but they hyped the hell out of Brock vs HHH and Rock vs Cena only to give us the exact same matches months later, and the outcome of both matches couldn't be more clearer. Guess what? Whoever won the first match is probably going to lose the second match. It frustrates me to no end because I really am a die hard fan. Just stop treating me like a fucking idiot and I don't remember anything! No, I won't pout and claim to stop watching wrestling because I know that's a lie, I love wrestling, I want to watch, I enjoy watching but damn if this is the best the WWE has to offer towards The Road to Wrestlemania, I'm not happy. Will I watch? Yes but I just know that they're better than this. Much, much better.
