Yeah they've cut that bit off. Austin walks away followed by the camera, and you hear her in the background answering the phone like he told her.

I remember watching the angle and thinking how great it was, i was so shocked as i had no idea that Vince would have been the higher power. It was done so well. Fantastic television. The problem is i just wish that i could be genuinely shocked again. We all know that JA is involved at present and we believe that vince probably is too.

It would be awesome though if it turned out to be Shane McMahon and him leaving the company nearly two years ago was one massive swerve.

N.B. obviously not going to happen :x

Watching the end of Hell in a Cell again, if it was me I would have taken the camera backstage, through the gorilla position, & shown them being put in a police car. Jim Ross was being his old self (first time in ages) but both Cole & Booker T were a doing a lousy job. They were too calm.

I thought the PPV was pretty good overall, some nice spots and an awesome ending. I'm looking forward to seeing where this Truth/Miz angle goes. Surely HHH has to have some kind of repercussion from the Board given he was brought in as the board had no confidence in Vince, but HHH has had things turn chaotic on his watch?

Felt a bit sad to see Kelly Kelly finally lose as I think she has come a long way of the last few months even if she can't run the ropes.

Very surprised they had Henry beat Orton clean again. I wonder if they will go down the route where nobody wants to face him for the title or something. Looking forward to Raw tonight.

Cattanomics posted his predictions at 1:00am, one minute past the deadline. Sorry dude.

In better news, Pollard got a perfect score! Lots came close but botched it at the final question.

There you go. Could have easily got more mileage out of this storyline. Didn't last long enough leading in to King of the Ring,

I'm beginning to really like Cody Rhodes, but his match last night had my personal favourite moment. Oh gooseberry fool, he's going to defend it tonight, who against? He could lose that beautiful belt within 15 minutes of bringing it ba- Oh, it's John Morrison. Title retained.

The amount of times Booker rinse repeats 'You gotta be kidding me' .... eugh
Cole started out fine, JR was good, Booker was .....Booker.

It was the tedium of the Sin Cara match which set it all off. It totally went to gooseberry fool then.
It needs to go back to a 2 man-booth.

What? I thought the announcers were very good last night. Cole had a couple of slips back into maniac mode but on the whole I felt they built up the wrestlers and matches as important and interesting.

Yeah Cole started off well and there was some nice banter. Cole did go a bit mental in places but nothing too bad. I don't get the Booker hate, he has some really funny back and forths with Cole.

Honestly listen back and you will want to ram your head in an oven given the amount of times he says 'YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING ME'. There are signature lines that each commentator has 'mudhole' etc etc but this .... this was just so irritating.

EDIT:

ROG - Cheers for the GRAPL update chap. I feel like I have been making good ground on the lead in the last few PPVs. I think if we did a bit of a form guide look at things I would have to be nearing the top. It's a shame you are as disfranchised with the product as I seemingly am now. If this was your last year running GRAPL then I would fear for my viewership entirely.

If they did it would be a bit awkward, being that Henry put Kane and Show on the shelf. Not to say they couldn't incorporate that into the story.

Cheers for your words Rog, your heartfelt support is what keeps me going in GRAPL :wub:

+ Henry will have a total match
+ Brodus hasn't been trusted with a mainstream TV match yet since his return

... apart from those three reasons we are all good to go :lol:
.... this is so happening now :P
