Just wanted to say I'm shocked to find you're doing rants again! In a good way. You're the reason I created an e-fed about 12 years ago. I ran the thing for a decade, using your ratings on Raw and Nitro to make sure my cards didn't read like total crap -- and that the storylines, etc. all made sense.
Well, I never did Nitro, but thanks regardless. I never really left as such; the blog has been running in various forms for almost 10 years now.
Anyway -- Here's a few questions for you regarding the current state of wrestling:
What can TNA to get Samoa Joe over again?
Why is AJ Styles on the midcard do you think?
CM Punk -- You think he retains at HiaC to surpass the Cena title reign? wwe.com seems to be pushing that angle a little.
1. Let him beat people up and then unveil him as the leader of the Aces & Eights.
2. Because he had his run at the top and he's the kind of guy to step aside and let other people have their runs.
3. Unless he's injured or fired beforehand, he will be taking the belt to the Rumble and losing it to the Rock. You can pretty much bet real money on that.
What do you think the best build up / introduction of a wrestler has been in these eras?

WWF Attitude Era
WCW Saturday Night Era (80s)
