Apparently Punk's shoot was essentially a work. Or, more a shoot that they allowed to happen. WWE Officials told Punk to go out and explain why he was leaving the company, and they would cut him off if it got too heavy, which it did. It wasn't scripted but it was 'under control' shall we say.

Was Monday Night's Raw from Las Vegas even a live show this week? As far as I know, they had to immediately head all the way over to Australia and tape next week's in advance (because of the distance, time difference, obvious reasons), details for which have already been leaked.

If (as I suspect) Monday's night's Raw wasn't actually live, then there's NO CHANCE IN HELL :wink: that Vince would've allowed some of that stuff to be broadcast if it wasn't worked. Although I do think Punk took it that little bit further than they expected him to. :lol:

The Australia thing doesn't half throw a spanner in the works. I originally heard that they filmed two shows back-to-back in Vegas. I'm thoroughly looking forward to next week to find out. :D

CM Punk has been in trouble about saying something homophobic to a fan in Australia - see link below

Well if I can get a least ten people to come along watch it will be.
Drinking + Wrestling games ending in Wrestling PPV (keeping it simple) Ill see if they will do us all some popcorn
Probably starting about 6 till 11.00 (Quick break half way for drinks)

Maybe a Tuesday night now followed by RAW (Time permitting)

Got an hour into the longer edition (less adverts) of Impact, first wrestling match does not start until 20mins! Very much the Sting & Hulk show, more build up for the inevitable match later in 2011 (when surely the Hulk will turn back to the Red & yellow roots!). The X-division match was fab, great to see all these old TNA faces returning. Still got the last 50mins to watch tonight.

Can I just say how much I love Sting now? Every week I get into his segments. One of the best guys to play the "deranged and unhinged" role in the business. Perhaps Foley as Cactus Jack over the years woiuld be up there. Watching him at the moment reminds us why they bougght him back and what he's capable of. Better than the old "I hate Immortal" promos we had every bloody week!

I do wonder if all the sting action is leading up to going out on a high, particularly with him headlining the UK tour next January.

TNA>WWE

This is becoming the norm

WWE seems to be repeating old matches a fair bit.
Old Kane vs Rey match.
Kane match afterwards

HANG YOU HEAD IN SHAME MATCH SCHEDULERS!
