it's amazing that he's lasted this long. 

He and Jake Roberts should have their DNA mined.  They've been cheating death about as long as I've been alive.

That's the problem, that will never happen.  It's still a show, they're unionized and it's always going to be scripted.  The days of "kicking ass" are over.  Lesnar's shtick is going to wear thin in a matter of months.


I mean I just want a scripted fight if he says he's going to "kick ass". He hasn't shown it since coming back. Its just been a lame face to face with a F5 here and a AA there with a punch to Cena's face. Give me a Lesnar vs Mark Henry fight or some crap.

Hold up, wrestlers are NOT unionized.

They're independent contractors.

What do you mean the days of "kicking ass" are over?

Essentially that "big dudes with bad attitudes" ain't gonna cut it - you have to be able to entertain.

True.  I thought they were.

I might have to find a way to watch the Brock-Cena match from last night, the reviews I saw this morning said it was one of the best WWE matches ever, as brutal as anything you'll ever see, both got cut the hardway (not self-inflicted).  Cena appears to be taking some time off afterwards.  Brock looked kind of chubby from the pictures on wwe.com.

I think it's smart of WWE to let Cena take some time off for a variety of reasons.

1. If they aren't going to turn him heel... taking time off will allow crowd heat to die off him and there won't be a full on early 90's Hogan reaction to his character every time he's on stage.

2. He needs a break... he's been going at it for what? Eight, nine years now? Time off is good for wrestlers.

3. It gives the WWE someone to come back and "save" the product after Brock destroys it for a few weeks leading into Summer Slam.

there are reports as well that Lesner's return was a one-time thing, or maybe he'll come back for WM.  If that's the case, they really rushed it.  But yeah, he does need a break.

Hmm. I heard they were going to feud Orton with Lesnar and lead it up to a SS match or a WM match between either Lesnar/Cena or Lesnar/Rock.

Hell yea. Give Orton a push again.

I really want to see Batista back.

their match on Raw a few weeks ago was really really good.

I had mixed feelings about tonight, too much idiocy around the Lesner story line, just let him beat people up.  Maybe have a fan ballot each week to determine who Lesner assaults?

When Orton was a private with 1st Battalion, 4th Marines, out of Camp Pendleton, Calif., he ditched the Corps for nearly three months and was deemed a deserter.

Is he also the guy that looks like he walked off of a gay pictures set?
