    I heard about Daniel Bryan. Sucks. I started to read up more about the storyline after I went to Wrestlemania last year. Kind of got back into it.

    Watched the raw after wrestlemania a couple weeks ago and it was horrid.

      Between the neck injury that was the beginning of the end for him and CM Punk's retirement and breaking up the Shield, my wife and I quit watching. We'd have kept on with it if we thought anyone good was going to get a push to replace them, but they took forever to recognize Bryan's talent, they still can't figure out how good Antonio Cesaro is and do anything with him.

            They have Cena where they want him. He's a heel to the smarks and a hero to the marks. Women and children and foreigners tune in to cheer him and dudes my age tune in hoping he loses.

            It's kind of what they did with Bret Hart when he was a heel in the US and a face everywhere else, only this time it happened more organically.

              The tide seems to be shifting right now. AJ Styles is getting a title shot, and they are acknowledging his pedigree in Japan. Anderson and Gallows are in on that angle, and Finn Balor may be called up soon. Between these guys from New Japan and the Owens-Zayn feud, the WWE is starting to acknowledge that wrestling exists elsewhere. Cesaro is back with a more defined gimmick and was in a number one contender's match the night of his return from injury. It has been inconsistent at best, but there are promising signs.

              I find watching the 1.5 hr Hulu version of Raw helps. They edit out most of the crap.

                      Heart wrenching love story, people think of The Notebook. I think of miss Elizabeth and macho man getting back together.

                          Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart passes away at 63.

                          There goes another part of my childhood. Next they'll tell me Brett the Hitman Hart gets pinned for a final time.

                            It’s weird just seeing my childhood heroes aging. I was watching Tiger’s News conference yesterday, and even he looks old in the face.

                            It makes you come to grips with your own mortality.
