Thought of the Day – The Most Underrated Wrestler Of The Last Decade

He was older than most rookies, he had a distinctive look, he was AWESOME in developmental, he came up about the same time as Orton and Cena and for my money was the best prospect of those three in his first year on WWE TV. He had a horrible gimmick but made it both memorable […]

WWE.com Announcement – Raw and Smackdown Swap GMs

Teddy is running Raw and Ace is running Smackdown. I’m not entirely sure what this solves but it mixes things up a bit. Edit: Apparently this is just for a week. So much for it meaning anything. Thoughts on this?
