I think it's as simple as Vince McMahon hating the division. Most of them can't wrestle, the matches are terrible, the storylines are terrible & there's very little sex factor whatsoever. And the ironic thing is, it's all their fault. They've hired models instead of wrestlers & forgotten to actually train them.

Look at what Trish Stratus & Fit Finley did with the roster, & then compare that to now.

Apparently the WWE Network will have a cruiserweight only show. This can only be good.

It's silly how they hire models and don't have them flaunt their good looks more if they can't wrestle for gooseberry fool. Getting rid of Finlay was also a big mistake.

They should scrap the division and just let Kharma, Beth and Natalya have random matches whilst the rest become a new take on the Nitro Girls.

The Nitro Girls really was one of Eric Bischoff's better ideas.

They would usually start the show following the "Pyro & Ballyhoo", or come out & dance while the announcers plugged tickets or what was still to come later in the programme. It wasn't uncommon for Nitro to start, the pyro go off, the Nitro Girls dance, & then they'd go over to the announce position to discuss various developments.

The way Nitro was paced (until 1999) compared to today was just night & day. Very much like a sports broadcast.

They are probably trying to get more British people to watch. That guy that made Fable, said you love them.

Funny thing is, I've been very down on WWE and wrestling in general for a good few months but the last few weeks have made me a lot more positive.

I also think I'm the only one on here that's enjoying the cena/kane feud.

I'm looking forward to rock v cena at mania and rock being on 4 raws soon. HHH v taker is still interesting to me. I like the punk and johnny ace segments and whilst I think they've strawberry floated up the jericho return by not having him win the rumble I'm still interested in where it goes.

The divas division has never held anymore interest to me than hoping for a wardrobe malfunction. Although kharma v Beth will be interesting in the short term when it happens.

Woah woah woah!!! Don't you go attributing the Cena and Kane love to me there chap. I think that storyline is god awful :lol:

The things I'm enjoying myself at the moment are:

- anything to do with mark Henry, Bryan and Miz

.... Actually the best wrestling 15 mins I've seen on tv in the last few months was the Alex Shelley / Austin Aeries in ring promo. That was fantastic

Awful as it may be (and it really is), at least it gives Cena something else to do rather than being involved in the title picture yet again.

No. Michael Cole FTW. Calls everything fairly, and isn't too busy sucking up to Stone Cold.

Michael Cole is the people's commentator. Look at how he has eventually changed his mind about Daniel Bryan, going from hating him, to being won over by the charisma that Bryan clearly exudes.

Michael Cole knows his gooseberry fool, never gets a call wrong.

The Rock vs. John Cena needs Tony Schiavone.
