    Yay, Castagnoli!

    If they do a Castangoli vs. Danielson match eventually in some shark town, and there's duelling "HEY! / YES!" chants, I'll cum.

    They love indie wrestlers in Shark Town, I'd have expected you to know that.

    You know, from everything I've seen of these "off air" videos - Michael Cole is an even bigger asshole in real life.

    I get the idea WWE *genuinely* want Cole seen as unlikeable as possible, so this is what ya get...

    The problem with that is.... a genuinely disliked person just gets blanked by most people. As in totally "Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't see you there burning to death because I didn't piss on you while you were on fire.." blanked. It's really not that hard. Cole is like the Big Brother bird tweeting thing to me now.

    There are videos of the pre show feeds (some guy intercepts signals from the TV truck) and in nearly all of them Cole is being a right b*stard (mostly to Tony Chimel) but also making disparaging remarks about women at ringside etc. I've come to the conclusion that were I to meet him, I'd want to introduce his face to a brick.

    To be fair, Chimel kinda deserved it for constantly botching wildlines and off air segments. If you listen to that stuff on youtube it's hilarious. I don't like Michael Cole, but like I said, some of that stuff is really funny. It's also the type of thing that goes on in all types of production.

    Okay addition of SD.

    Another top notch promo from Bryan which AJ sold beautifully. With Bryan's promises I'm really looking forward to Sheamus/Bryan, but I can still envisage WWE doing a quick fall in the first match. AJ's performance after the promo against Natalya was the best of her career.

    Another cracking promo from Damien Sandow, his gimmick is a brilliant heat seeking plan which hopefully will work for him. As well as Damien so glad to see Claudio, Titus and Darren on SD, although there not the best yet it's so refreshing to have new faces and personalities. Another shout out for Ryback who was again dominant, also liked the home talent promo.

    Good main event, the heel team of Bryan/Henry/Cody worked well together. Another concern I have is for Orton, this Kane feud is all but over and it is now becoming a fast-forward point of the show. Orton's stuck in a rut at the moment and with the busy title scene he either has to turn heel or take a break and refresh his character.

    Teddy also looked a right mug, loving Johnny at the moment

    I loved the tag match and the main event was spectacular. Claudio, sorry, Antonio looked great with Aksana and I'm really looking forward to seeing what he can bring to Smackdown.

    I'm also starting to warm up to Johnny. Gotta give the guy credit, he's running with the ball and so far scoring points.

    Even in that short segment Claudio looked right at home, he definitely has the look.

    I kept with Johnny and I'm glad I did, his little snide comments to Teddy are priceless

    The sound dubbing was terrible... The crowd reactions... WWE Programmers really know how to ruin the atmosphere of a show.

    I was thinking the exact same thing. Normally it doesn't annoy me but during the Bryan segment you could see the crowd cheering and "Yes!"-ing and the piped in boos we heard instead came off as really dumb. If anything it's a sign that they're certainly not welcoming the more vocal Bryan fanbase with open arms.
