    To quote a good friend of mine in Tumblr: "Bo Dallas’ face makes me upset. His voice gives me diarrhea." :hehe:

    But seriously, dude is still very green. This years Royal Rumble was in my home-state of Arizona and I attended the live fan axxess event. The only two guys that were over were Corey Graves and Adrian Neville(my personal pick to win it). When Dallas won, not that many reactions. When I attended RR he got zero reaction. But I can see why they put him in there and let him be in there for so long. Take the greenest guy you can find so he can learn his ways and pay his dues.

    But he is a really good seller and plays a very nice babyface. I've just yet to be impressed by him.

    It would be nice if the WWE rewards that loyalty by one day letting a UK wrestler be WWE or World Heavyweight Champion.

    I get the feeling Wade Barrett, Drew McIntyre and Mason Ryan are never going to get those belts.

    That's pretty much how I feel except I probably rate him higher than you. Selling is very important to me

    Wade Barrett is a great talent. I don't know why he's been getting sh**ty booking for so long. Dude should've easily won the WWE Championship at Survivor Series 2010.

    Looks like Davey Richards won't be at PWG Ten, but he will be participating in the 2013 BOLA Tournament. Wonder who's gonna face Brian Cage now.

    I'm not really a fan but WWE ruined his new gimmick by not playing up the fight club feel. Wade should have been wearing jeans in his matches. He should have been a gun for hire since he said it's all about money for him.

    Those Fight Club-style vignettes were amazing. They really wasted that potential.

    He was nowhere near ready then. Right now he's at his best, perfect balance of character and wrestling talent. He should walk out of MitB with the SD briefcase.

    McIntyre should be glad that he is still employed.

    I like him, reminds me of Tommy Rich. He's a perfect example of why WWE could use a couple more managers. I'd also like to see him on Main Event from time to time. And guess, it's a good thing I hardly ever look at my twitter account.

    I think Barrett will be WHC eventually. I think a Ziggler vs Barrett feud could be entertaining

    I'm hoping it's him or Sandow.

    what was the point of them revealing AA as suicide, teasing a match with bully by giving him the xdivision title if one week later they're just gonna have him drop the title back to sabin making the whole thing pointless

    ugh i hate booking decisions like that

    I always imagine TNA booking is done by picking stuff out of a hat.

    I think it might be part of a heel turn, you don't copy something from Bieber if you don't want heat. I think they are going to push him like Cena only this time knowing he'll be booed and actually purposely have him be a heel by using a traditional but outdated face character to generate heat.

    The way he stood engulfed in the pyro and then came out of it snorting smoke like a minotaur sent up from hell and created in the fire was just amazing, the best use of pyro by any company IMO.

    If Goldberg had started in WWE with guys like Jericho, Angle, Benoit, Triple H, Taker and Foley there to help him rather than manipulate him like Nash and Hogan did, it would have been interesting to see what kind of worker he might have become. I mean just look at Batista; from his big lump first title reign in 2005 to his all round accomplished final title run in 2010.

    I'm torn as none of them are nearly as good as Davey Boy was. :(

    KENTA a guest or just there as a fan?

    WTF? :funny:

    I've gotta give ROH credit, they must be the first wrestling company to hold an exclusive show for the gay community. :oldrazz:
