    Vicki certainly can't be worse than AJ at this point. Of course they didn't give AJ a whole lot to work with in the first place. At least they gave Booker a somewhat interesting power struggle dynamic between Eve and Teddy to deal with.

    The other problem, IMO, is that they turned the wrong guy heel at the wrong time.

    Yeah, Punk should have stayed face. I hear WWE is struggling with the finish for Sunday's WWE Title Match, if Punk wins clean Ryback's unbeaten streak goes which affects his dominant character but him winning also might not be the best thing right now.

    AJ is a decent performer but she got elevated too fast due to the reaction of her crazy chick gimmick. She still has potential but right now she isn't good enough to be a regular competing Diva so WWE needs to find her a useful role.

    I know it's HIAC, but I would try to make it a no - contest on Sunday. Or have it to where whoever wins doesn't win cleanly. I know Punk's said he prefers to be heel, but now wasn't the time for it. If Rock was going to be on TV more regularly through the Rumble, I might have been okay with the timing.

    In WWE"s defense with HIAC, they ended up with the unfortunate timing of Cena getting injured right as they were probably going to use the Cell as the blowoff to the Punk/Cena feud. Not exactly sure why they didn't put Orton, who's the second most established face after Cena (other than possibly punishing Orton for that drug test that sent him out for three months), but they choose to elevate Ryback (which I think is too soon also), and now they're stuck with whatever consequences happen from whatever the finish to Sunday's match is.

    And completely agreed on AJ. Sadly, she'll probably be future endeavored soon, considering WWE is about to go on another hiring spree for no talent bikini models.

    I hear Triple H has plans to all-but get rid of the Divas Division anyway.

    I think the reason WWE didn't use Orton is perhaps because of his disciplinary record.

    The disciplinary record is what thinking too. Still using Orton would have been a better stopgap than Ryback. A loss to Punk wouldn't have hurt Orton nearly as much as it will Ryback.

    True enough, I would personally prefer it if they had advanced someone like Kofi to the main event instead since he could do with the exposure

    Considering that Punk and Kofi are road buddies, I think Punk would at least have done right by him, even if Kofi lost in a short term program with Punk.

    Losing doesn't matter, the exposure would be good in getting Kofi over and seeing if he can handle Main Event level. Giving him the IC Title at the expense of Miz did nothing for either of them.

    Speaking of the Miz, from WrestlingObserver.com:

    WWE Studios and ABC Family are partnering for a television movie called "Christmas Bounty" that will air over the 2013 Christmas season, starring Mike Mizanin.
    The movie is described as an action-comedy about a bounty hunter turned elementary school teacher. Mizanin's role was not identified but the lead character will be a woman, and another lead character will be an ex-boyfriend who was also a bountu hunter that she had left behind.

    In what almost seems like it was an inevitablity, pics of the new WWE title belt that Punk mentioned would be coming last summer (and subsequently got shelved because, apparently, Punk opened his mouth too soon about it) have leaked onto the Internet:

    I'm starting to see why Punk may not have been too enthused about it.

    My guess is that somehow Kofi gets taken out and Cena gets put in somehow on Foley's Survivor Series team.

    Concerning RAW and Survivor Series

    Show Spoiler


    If Kofi gets taken out and replaced with Cena, I am hoping Miz gets taken out and is replaced by Lesnar.

    That all depends on A) if Brock wants to do another match and B)if he does, if the WWE are still dead set on doing a HHH/Lesnar rematch for Survivor Series.

    I still say that belt is not legit, seems like exactly the same picture as before with more detail. Given the size of background objects, I think as I thought before, that is a side panel for the main belt.
