    Styles hosted the Paul Heyman special on the network, and yes he's working the .com portion of WWE. From what I 'm told - he's got no interest in being on camera for Vince on RAW.

    Vince is a nightmare on announcers -- the RAW commentary team is the way it is because he wants it to be that way. Everything said is micromanaged to all hell. At this point, Cole's just given up.

    Joey Styles was always overrated.

    Joey Styles, like most of ECW, was great in the moment it existed back in the 90s -- not much of their product (outside of some PPV matches) has aged well at all.

    tend to agree. One line "Oh my God" .... over and over again...

    though when Primo and Epico hit their version (The Shining Star) of the Eliminators finisher "Total Elimination"... I could hear Styles screaming "Total Elimination" over and over.

    And it's so obvious too. When Roman appeared last week, JBL said something to the effect of "Whether you love him or hate him, he gets a reaction out of you!" So obviously a Vince line.

    In new news, Cody Rhodes asked for his release yesterday. It's being reported both Cody and Goldust left Smackdown before they started taping. Maybe Goldie was just being there for his brother, or maybe he asked for his release too. Hard to tell. It's a damn shame they couldn't do more with Cody, especially after 2013 when he feuded with the Authority. The Stardust character was always a disservice to the man.

    With all the new blood pushing through NXT, there just isn't room on the card for a lot of these guys. I wouldn't be surprised to see guys like Dolph Ziggler follow -- they can make good money on the indys and have a way less hectic travel schedule.

    Ziggler in New Japan would be (perhaps) better than Styles in New Japan.

    That's a lot more travel though. (Kind of.)

    Ziggler just reupped not to long ago for a multi year deal, because he had talked about leaving. I think you'll see Ziggler more as that "curtain jerker face" that gets new heels started and spend more time in movie filming.

    I'd like to see him go the "Mr. Perfect" anti-hero route with a tag-team partner (with Tyler Breeze perhaps or Zack Ryder) and branch out from there.

    Two straight weeks at home and two weeks in Japan versus five nights on the road, two at home, five nights on the road, two at home, lather rinse repeat. Which is better? Guess it depends on who you ask. Most gaijins that work full-time in Japan have the former schedule though there have been some that decided to stay in Japan full-time while working there. Most live their regular life between tours. In fact, I am pretty sure Karl Anderson lived right in Cincinnati throughout his entire tenure in NJPW, and he probably had more matches there than any non-Japanese in many years. Anyway, agreed that Dolph in NJPW could be fun but i can only imagine him taking the crazy bumps he does in their ring, and the proclivity for neck-first bumps over there, can you imagine with his bumping style?

    Man, that AJ vs. RO match was off the chain. Could only have been better if Mauro was calling it.

    The match was outstanding, but I mean, they keep wondering what they're doing wrong with Roman and why fans are rejecting him, and just keep on with the superhero booking. He kicked out twice from the "deadliest" move in wrestling, the Styles Clash, the last one even on a chair. Then he survives the Wrestlemania 17 finish of a zillion chairshots. No problem, kickout. Couldn't at least have had the Usos broken up one or two of those pin attempts?

    And then. One spear. Pin. Over. No one is kicking out of his finish, that's for damn sure. I guess I should be glad one finisher is still protected nowadays.

    AJ took some hard bumps too, hope all is well for his long-term future in WWE, he ain't no spring chicken though they sometimes portray him as such.

    Oh, and Rollins so clearly is going to be a babyface though they brought him back as a heel, and they'll wonder yet again what they are doing wrong when Reigns is booed out of the building at MITB or wherever they face off.

    On a non-complaining note, man was the four-way IC match awesome or what? A great accomplishment too because multi-person matches are often so hard to get MOTYC status on, but this match had perfect timing and tons of great spots. Kudos to these four fellas, and that includes the underappreciated Miz!
