After a hot SummerSlam and Raw last week, this episode felt incredibly stagnant.

Not taking anything away from AJ'd killer promo, but when that's the best thing on the show, something went wrong.

It's annoying that the faces wouldn't get involved. Okay, so, they would've been fired. But did Big Show suddenly forget about his iron clad contract?

Icarus, one of Chikara's wrestlers, has been both conspicuously absent in the Wrestling Is... shows, as well as vocally campaigning to bring chikara back, posted this link to an online petition on his twitter and the official chikara boards. Interesting to see if this leads to anything. signing it probably couldn't hurt, even if you don't care if chikara comes back. (i, of course, do.)

Follow up to this... the other day, Icarus posted on his twitter that his online accounts were hacked, and not to click any links.
that savechikara.com page now shows a message from Condor Security, an in universe subsidiary of the "evil corporation" that owns chikara saying "Your access from <ip adress> has been logged and reported." this is pretty funny.

I thought that was one of the best segments of raw last night. Heyman and Punk work so good together. I thought that whole segment was about as on the money as you can get.

Speaking of the Punk/Axel match then the subsequent beat down of Punk. If there was some other segment after that I missed.. then my bad.

Also I somehow missed AJ being awesome on the mic when I walked out of the room when the Divas came out. That was some top notch work there by AJ.

I thought it dragged on for too long. The whole "I loved you" thing isn't going anywhere. I just don't get it right now. Like Axel vs. Punk isn't interesting in the least.

Axel vs Punk doesn't really interest me either, but having Heyman involved makes it pretty good most nights. Really though this is just a placeholder feud for Punk until Brock wants to work more dates... so I have a feeling this is probably gonna drag out in some form or fashion till at least Survivor Series if not Rumble when Brock comes back.

I don't think it has a shelf life to last quite that long but I'm enjoying it right now.

I catch myself watching it on occasion but can't get into it.

As long as Hogan and Bischoff(?) have their fingerprints on it, and I know that 90% of the old roster is gone, it's still WCW-lite to me.

I can't help but smile when I hear the name Doink the Clown. That and everytime I hear Daniel Bryan's theme song. I love that little dude.

Cody said something about HHH not being fair to DB. So HHH made him wrestle Orton and if he lost he was fired.
