    Anyone here watch pro wrestling? Do you have any thoughts on it? Got any favorite wrestlers or storylines? I thought I'd start off with a topic that even people who don't want wrestling can talk about. What is your favorite belt among these?

    I personally don't care about wrestling at all, belt wise I like the top the most. I have a thing for Eagles, always have.

    Extreme Rules PPV spoilers
    I saw the Extreme Rules PPV and I thought it was just so-so overall. About as good as most of their PPV. The shield vs evolution match was the best match of the night. I sort of thought it'd be the last match. A lot of good and exciting points in the match. Then again they've been going on about how Daniel Bryan is a B+ player for months now so it'd kind of be insulting for him to still not end the show. The Fire Extinguisher person seemed to go on for a bit too long in my opinion. The Cena match dragged on for a bit too long in my opinion. The rest of the matches were okay, didn't stand out as particularly good or particularly bad.

    I really thought the match with paige and tamina was a cheap win, tamina was kicking her ass the whole time just to tap out so fast it was rather dissapointing. tamina really deserved that win.

    Payback Pay Per View is looking sort of lackluster. The two biggest matches are rematches from last month and Cena vs. Wade already happened twice. No Tag Team Championship match, and most importantly no world title match. On rare occasions they've had an injured world champion or one who competed in a different match not related to the title but I can't remember there being a PPV where the only world champion was out of action. It does have a few decent matches so maybe it'll surprise me.

    This whole Cena vs Wyatt fiasco is just dragging on, and there isn't really an established end goal besides I wanna destroy his legacy... They're fighting because they can and it's dragging out way to long. But the Evolution vs Shield is looking good. Any excuse to see Randy Orton attack someone really haha.

    The event was better than I expected it to be. The Last Man Standing match between John Cena and Bray wyatt was really good. I just sort of hope they let this feud rest now. Evolution vs shield was also a solid match, though again hoping they don't drag out this feud too much longer and it ends like Triple H said it would. The event overall was just so-so in my opinion. Wasn't excellent but at least it wasn't lousy like I thought it'd be.
    You have WWE Network, don't you Miles? I'm surprised you watch each Raw but not the PPV. I mean even a lousy PPV is generally better than their televised shows.

    I wish I could get the WWE network but it's to much of a hassle to stooge it..

    RAW was INSANE!! Right at the end with the Shield vs the (updated) Evolution.. OMG.. I genuinely was shocked and when Stephanie was speaking and Cena walked out, just full of surprises..

    Stooge it? What does that mean?

    I am disappointed that the Shield broke up. It seems like groups in WWE rarely stay together more than a year or two without breaking up. Cryme Tyme, the Heart Dynasty, Rhodes Brothers (although at least Cody didn't attack Goldust), the original Nexus, Real Americans, Prime Time Players etc.

    There is a way that you can get it in Australia but it's confusing the system to think you're setup in the US, I considered it but not worth it. I loved the Original Nexus, especially when Randy Orton punted them in the head. Put Husky Harris out of commission.

    Wasn't that part of the New Nexus with CM Punk? Original Nexus didn't have Husky Harris.

    I'm going to go on a bit of a rant here, but I think WWE isn't doing nearly enough with their midcard division. When is the last time they had a ladder match or some other big gimmick match for the IC or US championship? eg. Razor Ramon vs. Shawn Micheals. They have 3 hour Raws now, they should use that time to give midcarders more promo time. They aren't even resorting to the extremely lazy "You have the title that I want" feud. Twelve days away from Money and the Bank and they still haven't named an IC or US match. It is normally just thrown together, maybe with a few minutes of feuding or a qualifying match if we're lucky. When is the last time the IC title propelled someone into main event status either? I just looked up on WWE.com a list of their previous IC champions. Cody Rhodes, Big Show, Christian, The Miz, Kofi Kingston, Curtis Axel, Big E Langston, Rey Mysterio, John Morrison, Drew McIntyre. Most of them have faded into obscurity since. Same goes for Divas division.

    Husky Harris was one of the original members, he wasn't in the first appearance though. It was Wade Barrett, Mike McGuillicutty (Curtis Axel) Heath Slater, South African dude (I forget his name) and Husky Harris.

    Also the MASSIVE lay-offs in the WWE, Heath Slater is now the one man band again because Jinder Mahal and Drew McIntyre were fired, along with Brodus Clay,JTG, Yoshi Tatsu and 2 other lesser performers.

    When I said "original" I meant in the first appearance, Husky was added later, but he was added prior to CM Punk's "new Nexus". Wasn't the Punt stuff all during CM Punk's feud with Orton though? Leading up to Wrestlemania. After the New Nexus was officially formed.

    I just looked it up, all these people were released.

    • JTG
    I'm stunned that JTG was employed for so long.
    • Drew McIntyre
    To be honest never interested me much. I thought they wasted that "Vince's chosen one" story on him and it should have gone to someone else.
    • Jinder Mahal
    Who was he again? Guy in three man band who was Khali's sister's husband or sugar daddy or something?
    • Aksana
    Other than a few top names the divas division is barely relevant anymore.
    • Curt Hawkins
    I barely even remember him.
    • Theodore Long
    He was a good GM but his role was kind of played. He was getting stale (although not as bad as Vickie who I think they should release too). There really isn't much left for him to do.
    • Camacho
    Who?
    • Brodus Clay
    Probably the most notable person on the list. He had an okay gimmick but he never really stood out to me much either. I guess it's better than yet another monster heel which was what I was expecting but he didn't really have any notable moments or matches that I can remember either.
    • Evan Bourne
    Seemed like he was going somewhere years ago. He beat Chris Jericho a few times. Though hasn't done much since.
    • Yoshi Tatsu
    I kind of liked him. I thought he was funny. Oh well.
    • Marc Harris (referee)
    Who cares about referees?
