  • Rocky sucks

    Punk vs Christian Would be great ,do it wwe it’s a good choice

  • Sammo

    No Christian either. Who did he piss off?!

    WWE currently has a weak pool of main event talent, yet they keep Christian and Rey Mysterio (two former world champions and very popular guys!) off both of RAW and Smackdown in the same week that Jericho, HHH and Lesnar take long hiatuses?! Way to use what you’ve got!

    I’d much rather see Punk v Christian and Sheamus v Rey Mysterio at the next PPV, but no doubt we’ll get Punk v Cena and Sheamus v Del Rio again. Zzzzzzzzzz

  • mark

    Where is Mysterio this week?? wasnt on raw or smackdown

  • Hank

    Orton tapped, hahahaha, FINALLY. It’s about time they brought this overrated clown down a peg.

  • xXx

    this sounds painful..

  • Jimbotron

    Wait wait wait….

    1.) Ryback actually spoke? I need to see this.

    2.) Randy Orton actually LOST?! This combined with John Cena not being in the main event of SummerSlam has now convinced me that the world is really ending this December.

  • Cakes

    Kill 2 birds with one stone, if the WWE wants to teach Orton a lesson and have him pay for his violation, book him against Lesnar for survivor series and of course, have lesnar go over to continue his monster build

  • Tony
