I had to watch Raw. I was so pumped for it.

It was pretty good. Some and hit and misses along the episode but a lot of the nostalgia was awesome.

He is extremely fan-friendly.. Terrific guy.  My friend had the WCW TV Title belt with him for hacksaw to sign and I said, "look what my friend found in the trash can!". He loved it

That heel turn was fantastic. Definitely one of the highlights of the current era for sure.

He was going to eventually. He has been Face for way too long. He's much better as heel.

Kane in anger management class on last night's raw was one of the great moments in wrestling television.

the kane/daniel bryant thing from last night - was so out of the attitude era ... made for excellent TV ... i hope they keep that up.

with the exception of last night's end, it was a very good RAW in my opinion.

CM Punks current heel run has been a dud so far imo.

I know a lot of wrestling fans worship the ground he walks on an wont ever find fault with anything he does ever, but i am not one of them.

His current run as a heel is boring. Much preferred him as a face champion.

he's well liked for a reason.  don't know why you would have beef with him.  not saying he's the best by any means, but he's a pretty good wrestler and tons of people like his character (heel or face).

Cody Rhodes and Damien Sandow have been better heel's than CM Punk so far. These current writers suck. Punk could be one of the best heel's but they just don't use him to the fullest.

Also, stop using Jerry Lawler in feuds.

i thought he was terrible as a face, he has been nothing since the HHH angle/face turn after he first got hot.  I'm looking forward to heel Punk, hopefully teaming with Bryan.

The problem with him as a face was that the writers were making him super Punk... pretty much the same as Super Cena. It's annoying. Cena has ruined this company. I'm not saying I hate the guy but I hate the character Cena. He always seems to win. The company has placed him above the championships. He does the same moves over and over (also known as the 5 Moves of Death or 5MOD). And he has been the same character for almost 6 years now. They won't have any progression with the company until they're able to create something new and fresh with him rather than worrying about him selling merchandise.

Another character that they've ruined is Sheamus. That dude is so annoying now. He was pretty damn good as a heel but ever since his Brogue kick became his finisher, his matches are so predictable. He's the second Cena.


Anyway, I do think Bryan/Punk would be a good tag team. Supposedly they're teaming up at a house show coming up. I would love to see that.

I just can't stand how this PG era has killed off the almost all the charisma it had back in attitude era and into mid 2000's. There are some good moments on Raw every week but for the most part, I find myself bored with a lot of matches because they're so easy to determine.

Also, they've failed to have a bunch of high tier wrestlers like they did back in the day.

Attitude Era/Early 2000's

-Jericho
-HHH
-Undertaker
-Kane
-Rock
-Stone Cold
-Batista
-Cena
-Angle
-Brock Lesnar
-RVD
-Jeff Hardy
-Edge
-Benoit
etc, etc, etc.

Now we have:

High Tier:

-Cena
-Punk
-Randy Orton

Mid-High Tier:

- Sheamus
- Del Rio
- Bryan (could easily be high tier but they've failed to do much with him for now aside from his brilliant promos)
- Ziggler now
- Kane
- Big Show

Mid-Tier

- Miz

Low-Tier

-Everyone else

Then we have HHH, Undertaker, Brock Lesnar, and The Rock who don't compete consistently aside from major PPV's.

Develop more talent and do more with them, dammit. Make titles worth something. Remember how huge a character Jericho was but he competed for the intercontinental title? He's won it 11 times. It meant something.

Now its just another belt.

I was impressed that they finally managed to create a low tier feud instead of worrying about Cena/Punk. The feud I'm referring to is Sandow and crappy fake Rikishi. They need to do more of these. Put Ryback in a good feud for once.

I laugh at people complaining about Cena's so called 5 moves of doom.

These folks must not have really watched wrestling the past 20 years or so because EVERY WWE wrestler has X Moves Of Doom. Every one.

Thats the WWE style and has been since the onset of the Attitude Era.

Its called a moveset. Everybody has one. Even your most beloved wrestlers of the attitude era.

This is not something that John Cena invented.
