    Magazines are so 1980s. If someone wants to pay to do it have at it.

    Also it talked about the network in Canada and I still think they bum rushed the network ridiculously foolishly. When so much of your fan base is in other countries (largely UK, Canada, and Mexico) you have to have something this important avaiable in at least one if not two of them to give yourself the flexibility in memberships to reach your stated goals.

    Re: WWE problems

    I liked Del Rio's run up until the loss at WrestleMania 27 to Edge, at which point he lost a lot of steam. I really dug his babyface turn at first but they just booked him as SuperCena going over guys like Sandow, Rhodes, Ziggler, etc, every single week on TV, multiple times. I think that hurt him a lot, as well as the initially intriguing but ultimately poorly thought out feud at WM with Swagger. I remember Ziggler and Del Rio having an amazing 20+ minute match on Main Event a few weeks before WrestleMania, that's how they should have been getting Del Rio over instead of xenophobia angles (though I certainly have enjoyed Zeb's run). And then the double turn with Ziggler, which was a classic case of having a good idea but going nowhere with it. Ziggler quickly fell back down the card and ADR was now back to the same dull character he had become before his babyface turn.

    Anyway it will be interesting to find out what ADR ultimately did to get this immediate termination. The dirt sheets are saying he slapped a WWE social media employee but who knows.

That's an amazing statement."

    I think Del Rio was misused and criminally underrated as a worker. He routinely put on fantastic matches, and WWE taking Rodriguez away from him killed what little momentum he had left. I agree with Tom, I was intrigued by his babyface turn and was actually really into it for a while, but it went nowhere. He was booked very poorly and it showed towards the end.

    Apparently, according to Del Rio, he slapped someone for making a racist comment towards him. It seems like a classic case of he said-she said. WWE's twitter account took a shot at him, calling him unprofessional and that he has no one to blame but himself. So there's been some speculation that this is all a work. Hard to tell, but my gut says it's legit.

    I'm getting pretty hype for Brock winning the WWE Title tonight.

    Agreed. I actually just rewatched their match from Extreme Rules 2012, and it was an awesome bout. I expect tonight to be more of the same, with the Beast walking out on top at the end. Lesnar is a special attraction and a monster, however long his title reign lasts will be beneficial to the company. I see a scenario where Cena takes the title back at Night of Champions, but Lesnar leaves him in such bad shape that Rollins cashes in and is the new champ.

    I'm also excited for Rollins/Ambrose tonight, and to see where the McMahon Bella storyline evolves to. Should be a pretty good show overall.

    That was awesome. Cena is kill, all hail Bork.

    I enjoyed the entire PPV, especially the title match. A lot of people had a problem with it, but I thought it was beautiful story-telling. And props to Cena for putting Lesnar over in a major way. Whoever does knock off Lesnar eventually is going to get a HUGE boost in credibility.

    I imagine now we'll build to Brock / Roman at Wrestlemania next summer.

    I approve of this.

    It is almost assured that Cena will take back the belt at Night of Champions next month. Brock fights three to four times a year at best and they will not leave the strap on him long term for that reason.

    Agreed. I think Cena wins the belt in a way that makes Lesnar still look strong, and after the match Cena is so physically beat up that Rollins cashes in on him and becomes the new champ. I do think we could very well be heading towards a Reigns/Lesnar WrestleMania moment, however. There's speculation that Triple H favors that, while Vince is seeking The Rock vs. Brock. That would net huge buys, but not sure what it does LONG TERM for the company, which they really need to start thinking about.

    Either way, I think the next several months should be exciting. Would love to see Rollins feud with Ambrose over the title if he does indeed end up cashing in soon.
