Makes a little more sense I guess.

Anyway, why can't WWE have the balls to book a clean finish in a main-event match?

Even if you could get over the bullshit finish (which the referee didn't even see), the ending in which Cena just dumped Riley & Miz like a load of rubbish was completely unnecessary.

Yup. The double burial.

It's not enough to have him lose the match, let's have Cena steam-roll over him.

Yeah i was expecting a restart, not a reversal of the decision, that made no sense.

Could they not have had another referee run down & tell Chioda what happened? Or show a replay on the Tron? So many alternatives that took 10 seconds of extra thought that would have made more sense.

Another reason why I can't wait to see the back of Cena. On the subject of him, has there ever been a top babyface who is:

1) as rubbish in the ring as he is? I remember Wrestling Observer making a good point after Wrestlemania that he hasn't improved his in-ring skills after ten years or so in the business, which is pretty much true.

2) as hated by the IWC and "smart" fans as he is?

Really getting sick of the bullshit like the burial at the end of the match.

Looking at it objectively, it has been a while since he held the title.

Like it or not, he's the company's top draw. It did make sense for him to get the win... still no need for the after-match burial.

If the WWE wasn't in the PG-era, there is no way he'd be at the top.

You call it a burial but he pinned Cena and kicked out the AA.

TNA iMPACT! Tapings

The show kicked off with Jesse Neal coming out. Neal was wearing his Navy uniform. He was on the USS Cole when it was bombed by Al Qaeda and lost his best friend in the bombing. He came out to lead everyone in singing the national anthem. The entire roster came out with him.

Immortal came out for an interview. Sting and RVD came out and we had a brawl as well. Fortune then came out and said things are going to change next week.

Jeff & Karen Jarrett are looking for Velvet Sky backstage and eventually found her having a shower.

There is a Cinco de Mayo celebration. Mexican America celebrates and calls out Willie Urbina and Hector Guerrero. hen Hernandez and company turned on Urbina because he's Puerto Rican, not Mexican. They were beating him down until Shannon Moore and Jesse Neal made the save. Moore & Neal then issued a challenge to Beer Money for the tag titles.

A.J. Styles & Christopher Daniels and Bully Ray & Gunner went to a no content when Tommy Dreamer ran down to make the save on Styles. Dreamer then turned on Styles and laid him out with a piledriver.

Jeff & Karen Jarrett again accused Velvet Sky of being Kurt Angle's secret mistress. Winter & Angelina Love interupted Finally Kurt made the save which led to a 2-on-3 main event

Rob Terry defeated Murphy

Mickie James defeated Miss Tessmacher. This led to Madison Rayne challenging Mickie James for a rematch. James said that if Rayne loses, then Tara is set free.

Sangrieto (Red under a mask) defeated Suicide

Kurt Angle & Velvet Sky pinned Jeff Jarrett, Angelina Love & Winter

Show closed with Kurt Angle vowing to introduce the mistress next week

It really wasn't, it was the champion face getting a little payback for the heel almost winning the title by cheating. Worse things have happened. People are far too quick to throw the word burial around, have been for ages.

Only problem being Cena was left standing tall at the end of Raw last week (after destroying all & sundry), at Extreme Rules the night before & Raw the following night.

YEAR LONG BONUS ROUND
After skipping season 3 the bonus round is back! It's simple, these are questions that relate to goings on in WWE over the next year. I'll store them in a safe place and add up the points at the end of the season to the final totals. The deadline for entry is this Saturday 11:59pm. Same for Skippy too.

Winner of NXT Season 5 (worth 3 points)
Prediction:

Winner of Tough Enough (worth 5 points)
Prediction:

Through how many months will Cena's current title reign last (worth 5 points)
Prediction:
Through how many months so right now May counts as one. All the way through to Wrestlemania counts as 12 even though it will only be one day in April.

Name three talent that will be future endeavored by Wrestlemania 28 (one point each)
Prediction:
Prediction:
Prediction:

The Rock vs John Cena at Wrestlemania 28 (worth 10)
Winner:

Yep you're predicting it now. It will be asked again at the time but it will be worth a lot less points.

Rog is NXT season 5 the one that is on now? it seems to be referred to as NXT redemption on the net?

Edit. just looked on wwe.com and they call it season 5. Strangely wiki and other places call it redemption.

Season 5 is Redemption aka the current one. The points are shortened because it's blindingly obvious who will win. Not as obvious as Rock va Cena though.
