The fact that the talent can perform this well when they aren't forced into a PG-13 mould should be a wake-up call for the WWE. I'm sure they sell a lot of Rey Mysterio masks and Cena sweatbands to the kids, but the product is weaker as a result - I don't expect a blood-bath every week, but this PPV actually had drama, tension and unpredictability - something they've not managed in years.

Whilst talking about kids, I really think it's wrong to bring young children to the events. Those two little kids dressed as Cena in the front-row are probably traumatised for life!

Raw wasn't up to much this week then Heyman came great to see him back at WWE, reading he'll stick around until Summer Slam

I was hoping it was going to be him when they said about Lesnar's representative.

I thought the big tag match was good, pretty logical to throw all 4 of those guys into one match.

Also, no one cares about Lord Tensai, not matter who he beats

In this era of 'legitimizing' and blurring the lines between story and real life, the fact they are giving a big push to a guy portraying a cartoon character type role is mind boggling.

Got nothing against him as a performer, I happen to think he's probably got a lot more talent than he's being allowed to show, but the Lord Tensai character is dreadful and no one cares.

On another subject, I think we can agree that Brodus Clay is dreadful. The dancing novelty has worn off, and his actual match with the Miz was pretty grim viewing...

Yeah, although it's worth his segments for his dancers. (just)

I hate Brodus's gimmick I fast forward until the fighting starts then forward some more until it's ends.

i don't mind the gimmick so much, but it was a waste having him squash jobbers for several months. It's only in the past few weeks that he's actually faced decent opposition in Swagger and Ziggler but it's criminal that they've even let him squash Ziggler.

What has happened to DZ? Did he accidentally run over Vince's dog or something? He's gone from being 1 step away from a WWE title reign, to jobbing nearly every week.

Same can be said for The Miz, jobbing to Santino for christ's sake. Former WWE champion losing a US title match.

I seriously have to wonder what creative is playing at

kind of irrelevant i know but i wonder how badly his entrance will be rendered in WWE 13. THQ get lazier every year with them so he'll probably come out with no entrance attire, or no dancers or something like that. Really time someone else got that license before they run it into the ground any further..
