    I haven't watched in a while. But I heard Kurt Angle is back as GM. Would love to see him in the ring a few more times.

    He's back but he doesn't wrestle. He plays the role of a face GM.

    All I can say is WWE is shit. I can understand the attitude era is gone, but FFS the snorefest they have now is awful.

    *Apart from US and IC titles, all titles are replicas across the 2 main brands, ie, Raw & Smackdown Tag Team Champions, Raw & Smackdown Womens champion
    *Smackdown moves to Tuesday following raw as opposed to being on Thursday/Friday, and is now live as well
    *Giving the same shit wrestlers the same titles over and over (and over) again. How many times has Miz won the US title now??
    *The shows are getting longer and longer. All PPVs will soon be 4 hours except for WM and SS which will be 5 hours. Raw is at 3 hours, and soon Smackdown will be 3 hours as well
    *The amount of Superstars they have is ridiculous. They get a Superstar, use him well for 3 months, then he's either released or just works house shows. Only once in a blue moon a real talent like Seth Rollins comes through the ranks.
    *The amount of useless shit on the WWE network is outrageous. It's as if they create shows just to pass them time, ie WWE ride along. Seriously, WTF? Total Divas and all this other crap.

    WWE will NEVER understand Quality > Quantity. All they want to do is grow and grow and grow and rake in the big dollar$ and stupid gullible Americans give them their money without realising this.

    I think the reunion is pretty much just a desperate attempt to make Roman Reigns more popular, but yeah I enjoyed seeing it until he got the mumps...lol... hopefully the storyline continues for a while once he comes back.

    Was good 2 c angle back in the ring at tlc
    The tag match between the usos and new day was pretty decent match as well.

    Although the wwe isnt as good as years gone by every ppv has at least a couple of decent pr good matches and the odd wow moment.

    Americans prefer every aspect of life with quantity over quality.

    WWE needs to go back to the way it was from 1997-1999.

    25th Anniversary of Raw today at 12pm. Supposedly there is going to be a lot of the old crew coming back for it so should be interesting to see what goes on.

    On another note Royal Rumble is just around the corner, which has always been one of my favorite PPV. Interesting concept this year with not only the Men's Royal Rumble but they are also doing a Women's Royal Rumble match as well.

    Talking of female wrestlers, the WWE has just signed some new talent from the indies circuit. Ricochet is a crazy high flyer who has some amazing athletic ability, the dude is legit just watch some of his matches at Lucha Underground where he wrestles as Prince Puma.

    Getting to the female wrestler part, Candice LeRae is the new chick on the block. Her Boyfriend has been wrestling in NXT for a short while, but now they have finally signed her. If u haven't seen her wrestle she is entertaining and takes some hard bumps. She's known for her inter-gender and hardcore matches. Unfortunately, WWE being WWE you won't be able to see her preforming as she does in the indy shows. But here is a taste of it. The match is worth the watch.



    And to finish off talking about female wrestlers it looks like Paige at 25 is being forced to retire from wrestling due to her injuries after getting injured at a show a few weeks back. I guess she can go start that porn career now and capitalize on all those leaked sex tape vids and pictures that keep coming out, she definitely wouldn't be out of place!!

    I haven't watched Raw in a long time, but this is one I will want to see. Really I'd want The Rock to come along but he wasn't in the promo so who knows how it's going to work.

    WWE has a reputation of not using Divas to their full potential so I won't be holding my breath over any new signings they have. Candice LeRae looks freaking awesome... however I remember when WWE signed by Awesome Kong and Gail Kim who were the top of the ranks in TNA (especially the hardcore stuff), then when both of them came to WWE... Gail Kim never had many matches, let alone hardcore, and Awesome Kong... I think her only official match was a royal rumble one year and she was eliminated within a minute. WWE are very very poor at promoting the women. The only 8 I can remember who got a good push over the years were Sunny, Sable, Trish Stratus, Lita, Mickie James, AJ Lee, Charlotte Flair and the Boss. They had talent to push the ladies 2 or 3 times that amount.

    Now let's talk about the Royal Rumble... my favorite event of the year. Well... I'm predicting a 4 hour snore fest. 2 Royal Rumble matches to watch will go for about an hour each, plus another 5 matches on top of that.

    I predicted this, I knew WWE would head down this path. Soon all PPVs will be a minimum of 4 hours.

    Well... I'm expecting to be disappointed, so I won't say much else until after the event.

    Yeah i try watching Raw when i can and if i miss out i keep up with all that is wrastling online. In saying that i'm sitting at home right now waiting for Raw to come on. Just interested to see who's gonna turn up.

    I agree with ya about the whole Divas/Women situation within WWE. I've been a big fan of Candice for awhile, as i do watch a bit of Indy wrestling also. As i said in the previous post she won't be used right.

    Actually i'd say my favorite female wrestler right now would be Rosemary. She's in Impact Wrestling. Good wrestler but i love her gimmic, style and her promo work. I'd say she's like a mix of Bray Wyatt and Harlequin. I'd like to see her in WWE but i think they'd just ruin her and her gimmic.

    No doubt they are, they made Raw and Smackdown longer with Raw being 3hrs long these days compared to being 2hrs. Wrestlemania and SummerSlam run about 5hrs i think.

    I'm hoping you are wrong about the Rumble being a bore fest but as with WWE they are hit or miss when it comes to their PPV.
