Noticed that too...

But he did say people can't do that drunk or sober anyways!!

I also liked when he was going up and down the line and was walking backwards he said "yeah I know, I know.... it's the worst moonwalk ever!"

I think the Rock thing is really poor, granted it was always going to be that way but for him to go on and on about it, then just disappear again - poor show. Hope the fans call him on it when he's back, but doubt it.

Can't see Lesnar losing to Cena, but Cena should really have ripped him about him landing on his head with the shooting star years ago - maybe one for a Lesnar/CM Punk feud.

Glad I wasn't the only one who loved the WWF reference, made even more amusing when the bleeper guy missed his cue (and he did again later when Lesnar said "balls" )

Also can't see Lesnar losing, who be pretty pointless considering this Cena losing streak thing post Wrestlemania is the most interesting thing he's been part of in ages.

This means of course Cena will get the clean win after the 'Five Moves of Doom', and Lesnar will start a feud with The Funkasauraus

Rey Mysterio suspended for failing the wellness test, or whatever its called.

Not that anyone really cares about RM anymore.

One more after this, then I expect he'll show up in TNA.

The Rock hate is become bemusing now. The fans did call on his 'disappearing act' when he did it in 02-04 and when it was valid, but none would bother too do so now as we all know he's an established movie star. I thought he handled himself tremendously well during his short run. He helped put Cena over in the build-up, looking genuinely rattled and 'thrown off' by some of Cena's promos (a favour Cena didn't return), and WM pulled in a record breaking buy-rate which means all the wrestlers on the card benefited as a result. Fact is, Rock doesn't need the WWE, but the WWE needs him.

No chance. Like Cena Rey is a merchandise machine with the young demographic (which he is very aware of), so no way Vinnie would release him.

Three strikes and it's bye bye Rey. This is his second. Those Vince doesn't want suspended or released are just fined and any issues are tucked away. If he gave a **** about Rey then he wouldn't be on his second suspension.

The kids have Kofi and Truth now and the Spanish speaking countries have Del Rio. Rey is now surplus to requirements.

has anyone actually been "three striked" before? I wonder if Vince would actually do it if Rey got caught a 3rd time..

He's literally on his last legs anyway. The only memorable thing he has done in the last few years was the Batista fallout angle and all he did there was let big Dave throw him around like a ragdoll

There's also Sin Cara for the "Look kids, he has a mask" element, but that all comes down to whether the guy can wrestle a match without blowing a spot, or a limb out...

Didn't know that. Sheffield is back as Ryback now, one of quite a lot of new stars for 2012. Don't think i've seen such a big influx of new talent for quite a while.

Somehow i managed to miss Smackdown last week and didn't even notice.. Only reason i realised is I'm watching this week's one and they keep referring to stuff i haven't seen

oh and i just found out that Andy Leavine, the winner of Tough Enough was released from WWE earlier this month. That show was a big waste of time then!

I really think you're underestimating Rey's worth. When he was negotiating his contract with WWE he threatened to go back to Mexico (where he is huge and would apparently make similar money to what he is now) and Vinnie caved to his demands. They also tried and failed with Sin Cara and Rey is a huge merch king. Kofi & especially Truth are nowhere near Rey's popularity. I still think he's an exceptionally gifted worker too when motivated. His feud with Punk a few years back was top notch.

Take away the
Spoiler:
Brodus match and the Divas
that was superb...

Spoiler:
Orton and Kane was entertaining, Bryan and Sheamus was an excellent match, Punk and Jericho had a great 'hardcore' style match, and as for Lesnar and Cena...whoa. I did question the decision of Cena winning but appears that he's taking a break for a while so it kinda makes sense, and it didn't diminish how much of a EDITED monster Lesnar is. I've never seen a beatdown like that before, or blood 20 seconds into the match :o Excellent show
