11:10 for the world's worst pedigree.


Cole was quick on the commentary to try and cover it up. Truly, he is the greatest commentator since Jessie Ventura.

Not much. He dropped it due to injury, it seems.

In the last few years Vince has sure been happy with intentionally dismantling the ring. Used to be very protective of it...

Hasn't changed his stance in regards to graphics on the ring canvas, though. Maybe that's coming next.

Interesting Punk RT which actually makes a decent point...

BTW, next time anyone rants about Vince's on-air Twitter obsession -- Vince loves Twitter, Twitter loves Punk/Bryan/Ryder. Think about it.

Vince most likely loves Twitter because he's been told it's a benefit to business. When he realises it makes no discernible difference whatsoever - particularly "trending" - they'll move on to something else.

Dolph's sell of the Rough Ryder was a thing of beauty.

It always is. Brings back fond memories of how Rock would sell the Stone Cold Stunner. :wub:

Having the finish to the Orton/Barrett match in gif form isn't good, it's just pointing out that Randy's halfway up before Wade jumps. :fp: The little laugh from Orton is great though. Despite being a vocal Orton detractor, the Barrett feud gave good context to his persona; I never quite got on with his presentation as a face when he's outwardly trying to end people's careers, Barrett's constant sneak attacks and cheap shots at least gave him good reason to perform like he does. Still not sold on RKO OUT OF NOWHERE finishes though, they're ridiculously telegraphed.

So I got WWE 12 today. How the strawberry float do you make a guy tap out? It was so easy in SVR 2011 now everyone just powers out of holds in seconds.

I don't mind the RKO OUT OF NOWHERE finishes, provided they make them a little less frequent. As it is, almost every match ends that way.

That was awesome, the way he flipped over his head, really used to sell the stunner as a great finisher!

I find the most simple moves often make the best finishers. Leg Drop, People's Elbow, Sweet Chin etc. Too often these days a finisher isn't sold enough. :(

It also helps that Dolph is just really, really good at selling.

Glad to see lots of people noticed Dolphs selling of the Rough rider. Anyone else notice Dolph's Olympic(Angle) slam? :lol: :o

EDIT: Just found a vid of it

I loved the way he sold the Stunner as well :wub: I love how they included it in some of the Smackdown games as well.

The darts really is like the wrestling - they've been banging on that they're now trending on Twitter this evening.

Looks like KK is our leader heading into the new year. Lucien has snuck back up to the top as well. Looking like a close one this year with only four rounds left.

Just watching TLC, the Ryder/Ziggler match was superb. Fair play to both of them, they put on a great match and opener.

Think this is only my second win in the history of GRAPL.

Batista's gone off on one on Twitter:

DaveBautista wrote:excuse me! did i hear that right? Daniel Bryan World Heavyweight Champ. ummmmmmm.....ok.

man did that comment bring the tough guy haters out. well i'm at Gracie Fighter Tampa daily. 6333 s. dale mabry hwy Tampa FL. stop on by

so to clear up any misunderstanding about me hating on Daniel Bryan...actually i've been a supporter of his for years, unlike most of you Johnny come lately smart mark supporters. we actually had a hell of a match together that was originally supposed to be a squash match until this old broken down ex bodybuilder who never deserved to be champion and only had it handed to me because HHH was my boy...refused to job the kid out because i knew how good he was and wanted to have a strawberry floating match with him before i left the company. and a hell of a match we had considering where our respective places in the company were at the time. so yes im aware of all of his accomplishments and hard work through out the years and i'm thrilled to death for him....but still...World Heavyweight champ???ummmmmmm...ok. opinions are like assholes. my Twitter account,my opinion. and to all the bitch ass haters who just dogged me out and bitched about how horrible i was.....i've worked with HHH, the Undertaker,Rey Mysterio,Randy Orton Stone Cold,Edge,John Cena,Robin Ethics,Ric Fuckking Flair!!etc.etc.. and they all respected me and my work. Eddie Guerrero respected my work. so don't expect your little bullshit remarks to actually carry any weight. in your Bitch ass faces!!

Is Daniel Bryan winning the title a joke? Yes, but only because WWE have gone about it all wrong. It's the same thing they did with Ziggler, Mysterio & Swagger. In the world of WWE, as (former) US Champion isn't Dolph Ziggler more heavyweight championship material? Or anyone that wins for that matter? I think the whole Money in the Bank gimmick has had its day, as jobbers are now winning the flagship titles in complete non matches.
