Man, this week's RAW was horrendous to the point it makes you embarrassed to be a Wrestling fan. uggh. So bad.

And Cena buries the Wyatts again. Jericho put Bray over for no reason. Vince seriously needs to retire and HHH needs to take over full time.

ANd Team 3d/Hardyz/Wolves had great match on TNA.

Raw was a bust. I'll give Impact a chance if they get rid of Taz. I hate his commentary.

That match is "meh." Bully is the only guy in that ring that looks all around good. Both members of the Wolves are terrible with their offensive and defensive set-ups, nothing looks natural. Matt looks like s**t. Jeff still looks pretty good.

@inferiorego: I've checked out TNA a few times lately and I was pretty sad to see how awful Matt Hardy looks. When I was a kid I loved the Hardy Boyz.

I'm also kind of on your side about Taz. He gets on my nerves sometimes. I like him more than JBL on commentary though.

@inferiorego: Taz is not any worse than Cole, Lawler, and JBL. He used to be more irritating, but he improved lately once he stopped making his ridiculous jokes and being a HEEL.

I disagree. Even though it's obvious age is catching up to all the guys, they still put on exciting matches unlike a lot of matches I see in WWE. And this is only the first match of the best of three series so they can't put everything in their first match. I get bored watching a lot of the WWE's matches. It's just basic wrestling with no substance.

WWE doesn't let their wrestlers wrestle to their full potential and bans moves which really pisses me off. Have you seen some of the moves Cesaro used to do in the indies? WWE doesn't even let him use 70% of his moves. He can easily outclass any wrestler WWE has.

Dead Man Down was also a WWE Studios film and is pretty good. I think they just helped finance it, so it has no wrestlers or anything, but it's a highly underrated movie from the past couple of years.

I think the Kane, Rollins, Ambrose, and Reigns segment was really awesome at first and then really stupid. I have been waiting for Reigns to have some sort of involvement in the Rollins and Ambrose feud because it made no sense that he would just ignore it completely. So, I was happy to see him finally defend his friend and former teammate Ambrose. Then they made a 2 on 1 match with it and made Rollins and Kane look horrible by making Reigns just obliterate them until a DQ ending. I hated the way they booked that. Same problem that happened with the Wyatt family and John Cena later in the show. WWE creative/Vince McMahon/whoever else is responsible for major decisions seem to enjoy making their biggest heels look extremely weak in an attempt to build super heroes out of their top faces. At least when it comes to Cena and Reigns.

Some Corey's gonna get they Mat kicked. Some Tony's gonna get they Greg split. Speaking of the theme music, the other day I found myself reciting the lyrics to Warren G's Regulate to the melody of Real American. It actually works a lot better than you think it would.

Raw was sooo bad this week with very few redeeming segments like Bo Dallas, Damien Mizdow, and the Dust Bros. Smackdown wasn't much better but at least it's mercifully shorter. The writing in that company always makes me want to say, well there are no words. Just a Jim Cornette face.

You guys are fine by not watching TNA. You made it abundantly clear in the first episode that you love ridiculous gimmicks and story angles. The writing in TNA makes some of WWE look like Shakespeare. The wrestling is okay but man do I not give a hoot about any of the characters in that roster. Most of the promo work is atrocious as well. I sort of like the Bro Men but only because they're so awful. Double Jim Cornette face for TNA.

Thanks for the podcast guys. My name is Enzo Mezmore, and I am a certified G and a bonafide stud. Bada boom realest guy in the room.

Got a chance to sit down and listen to the rest of the episode. Just want to thank Mat for giving props to Ziggler and Kofi Kingston as his underrated/underused performers. I've mentioned before that I am a giant Dolph Ziggler fan. Besides Jericho (who can hardly even be considered part time at this point), he is my favorite wrestler. I always get depressed when I think of how great he could be in the main event picture. He has the talent to be a Shawn Michaels level guy but a couple unfortunately timed injuries mixed with the schizophrenic booking of the WWE creative department/Vince McMahon have left him primarily in the mid-card or with really bad stories to work with. I was excited when he got to work with CM Punk but the John Laurinaitis story just ruined it. Their match at Royal Rumble 2012 focused more on Punk and Laurinaitis than a potentially great match between two of my all time favorites. (On a side note, that match is still worth the watch for Ziggler reversing the GTS into a fame-asser alone)

As far as Kofi goes, I think the guy is really fun to watch and has the crowd behind him almost all the time. At the very least he should be a consistent presence in the mid-card title picture. I think Bo Dallas is awesome but it made me sad to see Kofi job to Bo in a blink and you'll miss it length match to one of the worst botched finishes I have seen in recent memory. Kofi is better than that. Sorry about the lengthy post but I rarely get to talk wrestling and Ziggler is someone I get frustrated about frequently.

Does this make me credible now? If so, yay!

@inferiorego: Yes. This is actually the gold standard of achieving credibility in anything. lol. In all seriousness, you've always been credible, sir.

I. On commentary: Taz and whatever his name is on TNA both SUCK. They sound like they genuinely don't give a **** about the match. They sound like, "let's get this over with." They both suck.

However, at least they make an effort. KING! King needs to get fire. Instead of firing Evan Bourne, they should have fired King. He rarely says anything and when he does it sounds so force like he honestly couldn't care less.

Cole is a mic hog. He's clearly fat off of the money. He's a dancing monkey. There is a reason why GDYC exists.

I think JBL is probably the best from them 4. He sounds like he's trying to enjoy himself while commenting on the match.

"So your Irish" comment sounded like a comment about how WWE handles Irish wrestlers exactly the same way which explains why Sheamus was like... yeah well you know... WWE is a racist company.

-----------------------------------------------------

II. Heel tag teams are RybAxel, Slater Gator, Rowland and Harper.

I like "Lucha Lucha" in spanish it means a lot it means Fight Fight, Or Wrestle Wrestle. It is a sign of the crowd loving wrestling or wanting them to Fight ON.

PLus, I find it weird that y'all dislike Ascension. You both are all about silly/stupid gimmicks but Ascension's gimmick offends/irks you?

-----------------------------------------------------------

III. Jerry Lawler have worn the king of spades bedazzled shirt several times already.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

IV. I thought Ambrose eulogy was solid. They acknowledged that Ambrose is gone and Reigns finally came out to fight him.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

V. I made it to 41 minutes. I might come back to finish listening or I might not.

Thanks for reading.

@undeadpool: I think Smackdown is worth talking about this week. I don't know if I'd go so far as to call it good or relevant but some of it was...interesting. One finish in particular had me laughing so hard and at the same time completely baffled me.
