Just another victim of the heads-up-their-donkey "powers that be" in WWE.

Barrett is excellent, and could easily be a huge main event player if they hadn't buried him so badly over the past two years or so.

I also noticed that Ryback got buried as well. When I last watched he was or so it seemed on the way to main event status now he has happened what has happened to alot of potent main eventers, placed with a random superstar to make an awkward tag team stable.

I guess unless your name isn't Cena, Orton, Lesnar. etc. you dont go anywhere.

I did. I think the best part for me was the fact that one of my favorite wrestlers of all time is getting put into the HoF.

Well deserved as well, he looks in fantastic shape, DDP's yoga really is doing wonders for others who have been in bad shape.

No CM Punk or Kane on the show though, I thought Punk was only having the Saturday off for the UFC show, unless something else occurred. The main event was fantastic though, looks like the Wyatt's will be feuding with the Shield at some point.

about DB, i gotta say i love him as a wrestler, but his storylines... ergh. Team Hell No was the last time I really enjoyed his 'character' on-screen (and it was mostly his chemistry with Kane, y'know? they were hilarious together), that whole business afterward with him being all insecure with himself and taking it out on everyone else just pissed me off, and then him vs. The Authority? it's been done. meh.

I did like that whole thing in the cage a while back where he turned the tables on the Wyatts, though. i'd hoped it was gonna happen but you can never be sure whether the writers will give you what you want or it'll all just go to crap, y'know?

and i miss Dolph Ziggler, but I'm very glad AJ seems to not be around so much anymore, and I'm liking where Big E's going.

@MoogleMuffins: I will take a guess and say that the Wyatt's and The Shield will be going at it at Wrestlemania. As for Jake the Snake I agree he looks great. I can't wait to see who else is going into this year's HoF.

@theblackdragon: Yeah see that's where I am with DB, I missed the whole Team Hell No angle and I am in the same boat that all his storylines were meh. That's why I didn't get the hype behind him. I mean yeah he can wrestling but his storylines bore me. Of course that is more the writers fault then him so I shouldn't take it out on him but well it's him acting it out if you know what I am trying to get it.

@Tasuki: plenty of great acting-type wrestlers in the WWE have had crap storylines before — one of the worst examples IMO was Eddie Guerrero's last one, that whole 'i'm your papi' bit. Eddie was a wonderful actor amongst wrestlers (and i know i still miss him, even if his death did launch Vickie into the role of one of my most favorite heels ever), but i couldn't watch those bits where he was going after Rey's kid. There was no saving that storyline. I get that acting is half of it, but even the best actor can't save a plot if the plot is crap, so i don't think it's fair to load all the blame onto Bryan's shoulders.

i think he'll get to the point someday where he's genuinely fun to watch both in and out of matches and i'll look forward to watching him act out a storyline, but that day kinda isn't here yet for me i don't think. not entirely, though again i did quite enjoy that steel cage match recently, lol.

@theblackdragon: I totally agree with you. That's why I actually took a long brake like I did from the WWE and only got back into it the last couple of weeks. These storylines were just bad IMO. And while I know it's not fair to blame the actor those bad storylines do effect me on how I like the wrestler or not. But in all honestly even the great ones like Stone Cold and Rock even had bad storylines or gimmicks at the beginning of their careers (anyone remember Stunning Steve Austin?) so I just need to wait for DB and the others to blossom I guess you can say. Although I find it hard for them to do that in something like WWE when they bring back someone like Batista and have him win the Royal Rumble (yes I know its good for rating blah blah blah) but then there are others like Ryback for example which for awhile there looked like he was going somewhere and now he is randomly paired with someone else to make an awkward tag team?

As for the case with DB I was just wondering if I was missing something cause everyone was like oh he's so great and he should have won the Rumble which apparently I did cause I dont follow the indies and when then have a bad storyline in the WWE I tend to pay less attention to them.

@theblackdragon: Yeah funny thing last year up until a week ago was my first break from the WWE in years. Last time I took one was right before the whole Monday Night Wars Attitude Era started. Ever since the Attitude Era, I watched it pretty much non stop untill about a year ago.

Oh one another thing has anyone heard of any news concerning Undertaker and this years Mania?

Yeah apparently it's set to be Brock Lesnar vs The Undertaker, there were some concerns about having the match between the two due to how rough Brock's fighting style is and how beat up Taker is at this age. But it looks like they are still going through with it.

I hope they don't do that, lol. I'm not willing to doubt that Lesnar could possibly kill Taker in the ring at his age. Lesnar should win Elimination Chamber and face Batista at Mania so the main event won't be a Boo fest

@Mr_Trill281: Sting can't go into the WWE HoF since he has never been with the promotion. He is however in the TNA HoF.

As for Taker and Brock I know they have been trying to set that up for a few years but UFC always put a stop to it cause at the time Brock was signed with them so it would make sense that they do it now.
