Same Old, Same Old

Fair Enough, the WWE Championship match at Night of Champions was a good, solid match that went over 20 minutes that did what you wanted from a "B" PPV Championship Match and you could say that it was better than their match at Wrestlemania 24, but it's the same old, same old. There are a number of names that have been around long enough to step up to a major main event slot and have proven time and time again they can take the competition, and don't have a Jeff Hardy like risk about putting them in the big time. The fact that this match is the same old match is highlighted by the face that the John Cena-Randy Orton match at Summerslam will be the 25th time in the last 5 years that there has been a combination of Orton-HHH-Cena.

Even though Dolph Ziggler has been back on the main roster for only a little while, they have got the trust in him to put him in big time match with a veteran like Rey Mysterio, where he didn't disappoint. Dolph Ziggler's character is really developing and as JR would say he's getting a real "mean streak". Personally, I think he's watchable, he's a new star who isn't boring and is totally different to the "Spirit Squad" stuff, where I can't even remember who he was, and that was when I first started watching WWE.

There has been news about Evan Bourne being left out of the card on Raw, even though he was meant to be set up to feud with The Brian Kendrick after a solid match at a house show two weeks ago. I'm sorry but this is where WWE is going wrong, he should have been in the US title match at Night of Champions, erm remember that Jack Swagger has been in the company less time than Evan (but I guess that they took the risk with him, by giving him the ECW "gold" which paid off). He's exciting and has shown that he's not just a thrill-factor, that he can have big time matches week in, week out. He's shown perfect for the United States scene, and if not that, have him really feud with Kendrick (and give them some time). Kendrick is the perfect size for him and is very athletic but because he made the wrong decisions he hasn't been able to show that off.

From The official WWE website is now listing their October 25th pay-per-view as "WWE Bragging Rights". The event, originally called "Cyber Sunday", was changed to "Annihilation" and then back to "Cyber Sunday." The graphic on the side of the official WWE website still lists the event as "Cyber Sunday" while the official schedule at this link is calling it "Bragging Rights". Regardless of the name, the pay-per-view will take place on Sunday, October 25th from the Mellon Arena in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Wrestling Quote #20: Miz VS Y2J

Chris Jericho talking about the Raw Tour on his Twitter page: "This just in..Australian police have issued a warrant for Miz on the charges of impersonating a wrestler. Hes not welcome back." Well I got to say this might have been true a few years back but not now! - Santino Throws himself out of the 15 Man Brisbane Cup

During WWE Raw's Tour to Australia, there was a 15 Man Over Top Rope Brisbane Cup (Battle Royal) to see who would face Randy Orton for the WWE Championship later that night, during the match faced with Triple H and John Cena, Santino Marella throws himself out of the match, hilarious.

Wednesday, 8 July 2009 - Kennedy Spoofs Twitter... TWITTER!!!

Ken Anderson kills more time on his new series of short episodes on YouTube, this time spoofing the Twitter experience, hilarious! - AJ Styles vs Christopher Daniels vs Samoa Joe

I'm not a TNA fan but apparently this was one of the best matches of 2005, up the with Shawn Michaels and Kurt Angle at Wrestlemania 21. TNA have officially put this match up on their YouTube Channel as a part of their Classic Matches series.

Possible Summerslam Poster from The STAPLES Center

This is most likely not the official WWE poster for the Summerslam PPV but aparrently has been spotted around the STAPLES Center advertising the PPV. Personally, I think it looks a bit generic.
