The Miz looked like a ventriloquist dummy in WWE 12 so i wouldn't bet on them getting anything right

The last one I played was 2010. I don't see '13 changing that

Probably got one of the biggest pops at the house show in Glasgow a few weeks ago behind Orton, McIntyre (home crowd obviously!) and Sheamus/Bryan.

interesting plot development for the Cena vs Laurenitis match, but way too clearly signposted.

That Big Show segment was one of the worst things I've ever seen in an episode of Raw.

it reminded me of that crap when Drew McIntyre was using his "chosen one" status to bully Theodore Long a couple of years ago..

I will be annoyed if this is their way of giving Show a heel turn because although he needs it more than Ethiopians need food, it just doesn't make any sense.

It ate up about 15 minutes too. They could have kept Johnny asking him for the apology mid-match, but then just fire him immediately after as he didn't get it.

I reckon it's set for for Brock to interfere in the Big Johnny v Cena match.

What I didn't get is why didn't HHH come back out and re-hire Show/stop the firing to begin with? I take it he was still in the building and of course being the COO, outranks Laryngitis???

Oh wait, that makes sense hence they wouldn't do that.

i think that's my biggest problem with WWE at the moment, their storylines require that you let an awful lot slide.

Like Teddy Long's contract stating that the GM gets a college fund for his grandkids. What contract in the world doesn't apply specifically to the person that signed it?

And Brock sueing WWE for breaching a verbal contract, despite Brock clearly breaching a written one by quitting, plus Heyman suing HHH for assault despite Brock committing GBH on HHH. The counter-suits alone would bankrupt Lesnar.

And worst of all the board of directors sacking HHH as GM because he let his emotions cloud his judgement, but doing nothing despite JL trying to stitch up CM Punk, Teddy Long, Big Show and John Cena every week, inject himself in matches, perform montreal style screwjobs etc.

From the spelling on most of the banners in the crowd, you can tell the average audience isn't that smart, but it's ridiculous how stupid it's getting.

well i don't mind Raw being 3 hours as most weeks it's fairly interesting, unlike Smackdown, but won't that mean they have to increase PPV length as well? Otherwise what is a PPV other than an extra show once a month?

If it means they stop having their main events end after 5 minutes due to interference nearly every week and actually have 4 or 5 decent length matches then i think it could be a good thing, but if recent Raws are anything to go by, they've only increased the length so they can fit in more long promos. Oh and the 3 hour raws are more like 2 hours long, they just have a stupid amount of ads.

I think the 3hr idea is stupid all the recent 3hr Raws have dragged I'm constantly fast fwd most of the fluff they put in, like that bullying campaign ads. If they would concentrate more on the wrestling side of things give us better matches, like they do for certain PPVs then I'm all for it. I just think the extra hour will be used to show that WWE does all this charity work.

The new format for NXT sounds good. Lot of FCW talent appearing on it, and JR back on commentary! Going to start watching it when it starts.

I'm seriously out of touch with this now, as I only found out that there was a PPV this weekend after switching on Sky Sports tonight.

Cena vs Johnny Ace as a main event?????

They taped 4 or 5 weeks worth last week or the week before. If you search on Google you'll find some pics of the new "NXT Arena".
