It’s a night of Rematches! Tonight, Kofi Kingston invokes his rematch clause and takes on the NEWWWW United States Champion Dean Ambrose and the Miz finally takes advantage of his rematch with Wade Barrett for the Intercontinental Championship on Smackdown LIVE (on Tape) from Omaha Nebraska.
Also in action the focus of a lot of online chatter and latest Paul Heyman Guy, Curtis Axel takes on Sin Cara. Hopefully, Paul Heyman will grace us with a verbal soliloquy like I mentioned HERE.
In addition, Daniel Bryan faces Jack Swagger and Chris Jericho meets The Big Show.
And finally, Fandango and Summer Rae are the guests on Miz TV. Hey, I thought we were hinting at replacing this with The Damien Sandow Show. What gives?
Overall it sounds like a great card on paper, if lacking storyline development. Now if we could just shorten all the Raw Recaps we could get SmackDown back into ‘Must-See-TV.’ (That is not an invitation to make the Miz the focus, I repeat, not an invitation to push the Miz on SmackDown.)
The term “Paul Heyman Guy” was recently added to the WWE vernacular and everyone knows what it means. Right now, it’s one of the most dynamic and positive adjectives a superstar could have, and unlike other hyperbole, it isn’t randomly assigned – it’s earned and a telltale sign that WWE thinks you’re destined for greatness.

So is this a unified group, or just three guys with the same spokesperson?
Ryder is such the tease. Such a tease. A couple weeks ago he teased a change in Zack Ryder and then did nothing about it. Well, he is teasing a try to get over again. This could make sense though. Long Island Iced Z gets sent off in an ambulance and then a new character shows up? Like I said, this could work. Only time will tell. Continue reading →
CM Punk may be on hiatus for WWE, but he is part of the latest “Gracie Breakdown” video, breaking down the Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza/Chris Comozzi finish at UFC on FX 8. If you’re into videos of Jiu-Jitsu masters demonstrating moves on The Best in the World this is the video for you!
