I'm not sure John Morrison won tough enough wasn't it the guy who became Mordacai (sp) who won it that year?

According to Wikipedia, Morrison won season three.

She actually pulls it off well - possibly because she isn't entering into a relationship with a mop (I'm looking at you Perry Saturn).

I've only managed to watch the upto the tagteam 4 way match (too busy watching the footie) I thought the PPV was good up until that point. I agree the Ziggler match was really good I really hope WWE put a title on him sooner rather than later.

Very poor PPV, why an annoucement took up so much time as well as the same Ryback squash match was included again defies belief. Agree that Ziggler was ace though.

I'm a big CM Punk fan but does anyone else agree his title run is getting a bit stale? The injection of AJ has spiced it up a bit I suppose.....but it's all getting a bit tired.

Would have really liked to see Jericho win at Mania and let CM Punk chase him for a while....those two put on some good matches.
Likewise D. Bryan....put the strap on him and let CM Punk go after it.

Would be gutted if CM Punk doesn't take his place amongst the legends because of stale booking.

i enjoyed it for the most part. Ziggler vs Sheamus was a good match though felt a bit too short and pretty much identical to their last one-on-one match.

The triple threat was a good match but AJ's part in it was a bit disappointing given how much they've been hyping it up.

Big Show vs Cena worked well with everyone coming down to try and help Cena, the WWE never normally have faces interfere in matches but given the circumstances it would have been insane if they hadn't.

The surprise highlight for me was the Divas title match. Layla and Beth put on a pretty strong 7 minute long match, and although you could see Layla was completely gassed by the end of it, there weren't a lot of botches at all. In fact i think Ziggler botched more than the divas which is unusual for him.

The Santino vs Rodriguez match was pointless but it's good to see Rodriguez finally getting his own spotlight away from Del Rio.

The tag match was pretty good too, with the top rope hurricanrana to the outside being the highlight. I actually didn't see the ending of that one coming either.

Why on earth am I so hooked on AJ??

Not since being a teenager with Trish and Stacy on TV has this happened; now I'm re-watching AJ skipping around the ring in a Kane outfit and debating with myself if it's the greatest thing I've ever seen on Raw

I blame Boonspoon for his post above

You're welcome.

Anyone watch the new NXT from last night?

Seems to show some promise. Mixture of the new (FCW) guys and the old (well familiar is a better description I guess) WWE guys.

Mike Rotunda's two boys were on it. Bo Dallas had a match and his other kid, Husky Harris had a vignette for his new character Bray Wyatt:



We also had a vignette for Seth Rollins:



And a vignette and (squash) match for "The Ascension" (Conor O'Brian and Kenneth Cameron):



JR and William Regal on commentary. Much better than Cole and Lawler.

just watched it; as I expected, only 20 mins of wrestling in an hour show, and the main event was 15 unnecessary minutes of those. Hardly any Raw/Smackdown/PPV matches go for 15 minutes, and that's with guys who know how to make a match flow, so it was torture watching Tyson Kidd and Michael McGillicutty try to pad out that much time.

Didn't think much of IRS's kid, boring style and weak gimmick

Liked the gothic tag team Ascension but ridiculous for the members to keep their real names. What sort of evil goth tag team go by the names of Conor and Kenneth?

Hopefully next week's will be more interesting..

I thought the main event was quite decent actually. I'm guessing they used those guys to get those who don't usually watch NXT to catch it as it's guys they already know.

that reminds me, i never said anything about this week's Raw! The first show without "people power" and i was already wishing it would come back! Although JL was more annoying than Vickie Guerrero, going back to the guest host format, even with Foley was a massive step backwards and bringing out the corpses of Wendy Richter and Cindy Lauper was embarrassing to see, and god, Hotrod coming out with his pregnant belly and welling up in the ring.. terrible, absolutely terrible.

Does anyone else like Heath Slater or is it just me?

Glad he came out and interrupted Cyndi Lauper.


Also you can see where the WWE is going after People power, Heyman is going end running WWE because of the Triple H/Lesnar thing.
