In recent years, I have really tried to get pumped up enough to buy a WrestleMania PPV, but there just hasn't been enough to lore me in. With Rock vs Cena headlining this years, I am intrigued, but they are gonna need more. I'll need Taker in a streak match with some legit chance of losing. I'll need Jericho back (I know, he's me Tex!) in some capacity. I'll need some real good matches to gain my interest. The way the product has been, its just not worth it to fork over that much money for a wrestling PPV where you get many of the same matches on free tv.
The one event that REALLY temps me every year is the Royal Rumble. I love the concept of the match. Its fun. And its usually the one event all year where you really don't know who's gonna win. We'll see if I finally give in to temptation this year? I doubt it, since its playoff football time.

It was a great concept, but as usual, the WWE started screwing around with it and told everyone who'd be #s 1 and 30 in advance... ugh!

I did not watch, but from WWE's website I see that CM Punk won the WWE Championship against Del Rio. I've little knowledge of his career, but from what I've seen so far I'm glad that they finally put the belt back on him, and I hope they do not take it off of him for a few months. Please, WWE, I beg of you, do not let Del Rio near the title again. He is awful on the mic, boring in the ring, and his character is nothing more than a cheap imitation of Ted Dibiase. They have something in Punk, and they've missed the boat on him numerous times the last few months. Please, put this guy over to the roof!

As for Del Rio, he is a good mid level to sometimes main event talent, but I would keep the main belt away from him for a while. His time as champion was awful. They also need to find something to do with Cena for the next 5 months to keep him away from the title picture.

I have read the results from SS last night....yawn.
I watched two matches. The Mark Henry vs Big Show match was great, well done, two professionals. The Rock/Cena vs Awesome Truth match.....boring. Rock kicked tail, finally lets Cena in the ring, he whoops up and then gets beat up, then rock comes in and cleans up and wins. Rock gives Cena the Rock Bottom to end the show. So pointless. No storylines were advanced, and what the heck is going on with the Nash/Triple H situation or with the Miz and R Truth? Where can that storyline go? I thought for sure someone would make a run-in and further that storyline...
And its good that Punk has the belt again but if the past 4-5 years are any indication, he will lose it soon. The titles change hands so many times, I mean Orton has won the belt 9 times and Cena has held it 12 times. Thats absurd. They switch the belt back and forth with such frequency, remember when being a 4 or 5 time champ was HUGE?
And where does it go for Punk? Who will he feud with? Are they going to keep a feud that came from nowhere in Del Rio?
I just can't believe there is absolutely nothing going on right now in the WWE. The direction is awful. I have always watched the post-attitude era with low expectations but this is a bit silly.

Punk had a line in his opening monologue directed towards Laurinitis that was straight out of the Stone Cold playbook. He's no Stone Cold Steve Austin, not by a mile, but he is exactly what this snooze fest of an organization needs right now, and people sound genuinely excited about him having the title.
