Does that mean that The Rock will be back in the WWE for good, because what would be the point of him going for the title if he's only there to wrestle for Wrestlemania?

If Rock Vs Cena is going to draw big money then imagine what Rock vs Cena for the title will do. The Rock isn't back for good, he will be at SS then he will go away again and come back when it is closer to wrestlemania. I believe that was the original plan anyway.

There is absolutely no need to have a WWE title match between The Rock & Cena. The match in itself is huge, and it would be a waste of time to include any title in there. We just want to see the match!

And yet WWE felt the need to have Cena make it a title match.

A thing happened with Big Show that might remind you of a Brock moment (Gif pending)
Funny I was thinking it when they both where on the turnbuckle

Also

Overall, I really enjoyed most of Vengence, and it was definatly one of the better PPV's over the past 3 months.

It's just a shame that they felt the need to rehash stuff.

The re-apperence of a certain someone during the HHH / CM Punk vs R-Truth / Miz match made me do a :roll: I do wonde if HHH did hurt himself though, as the way he landed looked really awkward.

The end of the Big Show / Mark Henry match like Prinny mentioned was just like what happened when the Big Show vs Brock all those years ago.

The end of the Cena vs Del Rio match was the same as the last two PPV's. It's getting boring now!

Overall though, an improvement over the other PPV's. For me the Air Boom vs Ziggler / Swagger match was my fav of the night. I love Swagger doing what a kid does at a disco (running around doing an aeroplane) is just awesome! :lol:

That was awesome, I loved how he was trying to announce the Rock's name all epic and dramatically, only to spit down his chin! :lol:

They need to get Swaggers soaring Eagle back!!! I really can't understand why people like Kofi so much, I did try asking but I just get told the casual fans and people who don't know anything about wrestling like him

Atlast got round to watching TNA BFG, it's been hard not to look up any results or news on it. Was not the best of PPV's, I found Taz's commentary throughout boring and stunted. The Angle/Roode Match was well under par compared to all the recent hyping. I also felt Jeff Jarrett was certainly shoe-horning himself in as per usual.

Hogan V Sting, I quite enjoyed it in a nostalgic way. The crowd certainly got behind the old hulkster and was pleased to see he is not quite the physical wreck he would have led us to believe over the past few months.

Just watching the latest impact, HOW MUCH piped crowd noise are they playing!!! At the start while Sting is talking to Dixie, the crowd sound is very loud, loads and load of cheering, yet all the crowd I can see are just sitting their silently fidling with their cameras!! Began to really annoy me after a while.
WANTED: ANY SNES or GAMEBOY GAMES, OR EMPTY BOXES, INSTRUCTION MANUALS or WHITE INNER TRAYS, going for FULL SETS of both.

Double J has been one of the better things about impact these last few months.

Anyway RAW next week will be hosted by THE MUPPETS.
I bloody hate wrestling sometimes.
