    Man I like how they have been jobbing Cena now we need to WWE to do that for about another 4 years.

  • JayHawk

    Nice to see cena getting a loss but it seems like they are still trying to make people look at him as the under dog and beat up so people will cheer for him but don’t they get that they get a bigger pop when he is getting his ass kicked.

  • Ant

    and am i the only one who thinks that KHARMA will return at Extreme Rules the same ppv where she made her debut last year?

  • Ant

    am i only one psyched to hear Kanes old theme will be coming back??

  • WM-28 made record buys because of The Rock! Suck on that Cena fan’s! lol

  • sanj

  • cenaheelturnplz

  • JohnCena33

    I am here in london and am with JOOOOOOOOOOOOHN CEEEEEEEEEENA.

  • Omar

    It was awesome. YES chant galore!

  • JohnCena33

    Prick and Dick (Brock and Rock) are butt buddies 🙂

  • poko

    So the WWE is concerned about Punk being banged up and so they put him in a No DQ match with Mark Henry? OK ..

    Regardless, it sounds like a pretty good RAW on paper, even though they’re still booking way too many squashes and throw-away matches. I would much rather see that dark match than watch a Show/Kali tag-team.

  • little jimmy

    i agree with a earlier comment goodbye pg era (hopefully)

  • LSC

    Wow…Cena loses to Rock after a last minute change of plans, then gets destroyed by Lesnar TWICE…Now A-Train beats him?

    I guess Cena showed Vince his ass and not his dick lol!

  • Deva

    this raw actually sounds good, I am actually looking foward to seeing it…

  • Jimbo

    Tensai beat Cena? Awesome!

  • Litahashugeb00bz

    Pg era is gonna be done in a few months

  • Doogie Jeraud

    @nick failed to post the link to some broken-heart dating site. Thats free until you sign up, then they want $24.95 a month or $42.95 for the three month package. It comes with a unique matching system to find someone who’s heart is broken just as bad as yours. Either that or i got it all wrong and he just needs some good old fashioned school.

  • Whatever

    @nick, just one question.

  • nick

    man, i love this girl, that loved me but its been a while since we’ve talked about being together, like this if you think i should start the convo again. i need the support!
