    By 'their AJ', I'm talking about AJ Styles, not a little girl.

    So you mean they're turning Styles into lil' Stinger?

    Basically in their current Aces & Eights vs. TNA storyline (Think TNA's version of the nWo but with Hogan in the beleagured management role), AJ just seems to be very disengaged and not really aligning himself with anybody, much like Sting did at the beginning of the Crowe Sting angle.

    AJ got screwed when the old wrestlers took over TNA. He should have left that place years ago.

    Everyone young and good who isn't living off their past glories should leave TNA, that place is becoming the has-beens home for old wrestlers.

    Yeah, but AJ Styles is the one who built that place up.

    Same thing happened in WCW with guys like Jericho and Eddie, and we all saw what they did and what happened afterwards.

    What makes it more sad, was back right before they brought Hogan and Bischoff in, they were going to bring in Heyman, and his plan was pretty much the exact opposite of what they are doing now. He wanted to cut all wrestlers over 40 except for one, and build the roster around the young guys like Styles and Daniels. His logic being that if you fill the room with a bunch of Megan Foxes, you won't notice any of them, but stick a pimply ugly girl in there, and you'll definitely notice her. TNA didn't like it because they were bringing in Hogan so Heyman walked.

    Fun time at Smackdown tapings last night at O2 Arena.

    Also saw Saturday Morning Slam & Main Event, where Santino turned up on a London "Boris" Bike and cycled around the ring which was funny. Mark Henry had a gauntlet Match against 4 guys but chickened out once he struggled to take down Great Khali.

    For some reason Lillian Garcia sang the National Anthem, which was weird and got little reception.

    Regal & Barrett got good pops when they came out during SD, as did Layla in her Union Flag attire. Jack Swagger and Del Rio had a no DQ match which featured a ladder and Kendo Stick, that was fun.

    Over the course of the evening I must have seen Sheamus & Randy Orton about 4 times, since they appeared as a team and then in singles matches.

    Crowd chants included - "Luis Suarez", "RVD", "Randy Savage", "JBL", "We Want Goatface", "DX" and the usual Fandango stuff.

    But the important thing was Undertaker appeared...

    Show Spoiler
    he was in a singles match against Dean Ambrose of the Shield which he won with Hells Gate. He was then attacked by Shield and speared through one of the supporting barriers before being 3-man powerbombed through the announce table. After that the New Age Outlaws & HHH came out to clean house and help 'Taker up, I think that was a Dark Segment though.

    I really really hope that's the SD ME. I know most of the sites say that Swagger/Del Rio no DQ match is the main event, but damn I want to see that spoiler tagged match.

    Well they did advertise it throughout the night on the tron, which suggests it will be aired on TV.

    Just not the last bit.

    The match wasn't very long, but he looked fine and performed well given the opponent.
    His promo before the match with the rest of Shield was very good.

    -- John Cook of Gawker.com has a statement here where he notes that while they'll take down the actual video of the Hulk Hogan sex tape as ruled by Pamela A.M. Campbell, a circuit court judge yesterday, they're not taking down the written recap of the tape of the viewer comments on it, since those are covered by the First Ammendment.

    Ah. I knew I wasn't going crazy about Cena being at WM XIX.

    Apparently Cena injured his right achilles tendon.

    Pretty harsh injury with a potentially long recovery depending on the damage, though it will be awkward for WWE if both Cena and Punk are out at the same time.

    From what I'm reading from the sites makes it seem that it's not a tear, like Kobe Bryant suffered, but yeah, bad timing to have potentially both Cena and Punk on the shelf.

    But it is good for those that were held down by them, because someone has to be pushed up.

    I don't think Punk held anybody down, at least not intentionally. If anything he was one of those that had been held back until the last year or so.

    Sheamus and Mark Henry are playing Tug of War. Literally. Tug of War.


    WWE really has run out of good ideas haven't they?
