WWE: An Overview

The last month has been a very interesting month. TNA has run a decent storyline, and has run clean endings to a PPV (For once.) The WWE is actually making people guess. So here we go.
I like the Laurinaitis spin the WWE has. Yes, saw it coming. I just doubt though, that anyone could have gotten more heat than him at this time. His delivery is monotone. He lacks any sort of Charisma. He is just boring. That is perfect to get the crowd incensed and riotous.
The divas division has actually kept a storyline past 1 month. Holy crap. When did that happen. I like the saviors of the Divas Division angle with Natalya and Beth Phoenix. Both Divas are talented in the ring. Not sure why Eve has a title shot instead of Kelly Kelly, but I much rather have a good match with Eve and Beth instead of a botchfest that would come of K2 v Phoenix.
The tag division. What happened to it? I mean, wasn't there supposed to be a new focus on that. We still have AirBoom, but um, there really isn't a story here. This needs a lot of work.
I am loving the stuff coming out of the mid-card. Dolph and Swagger have garnered extra heat thanks to Vickie Guerrero. Dolph's mic skills have been ok. Swagger needed the help in the mic dept. Vickie helps there. I've always love the manager concept, and Vickie could quickly become a top 5 all time manager if the WWE keeps up with this concept for her.
The main events have been pretty good. Not great, but watchable at least. I do not like the Triple H and CM Punk as "buddies" idea. This seems forced. Will it make for an entertaining PPV at Vengeance. Yes, but they better have a swerve here to bring it back to the CM Punk Voice of the Voiceless gimmick. I loved that part, and it seems almost scrapped unfortunately.
I don't get to watch Smackdown much since my life happens on Friday. So I may get to catch it on YouTube a week later, but I do have a general assumption of what I enjoy of the bleedover on RAW.
Mark Henry has been a pretty good heel Champion. The Big Show thing looks interesting and makes for a more believable match.
Make Christian a face again. I enjoyed the whiny temper tantrum gimmick when he was with E&C and after they broke into the singles division. It doesn't work now that he is in his mid thirties. I also think he needs to have a longer run with the WHC or WWE championship. The other runs were a joke.
Cody Rhodes. Easily the most interesting thing going on Smackdown. If the WWE keeps this up, than there is nowhere to go but to the top. Using Randy Orton to get him over is the best decision the WWE has made in a while. I hope this feud lasts a while. Also the IC Classic is also a fantastic idea.
I was gonna do a TNA Overview on this, but I'll save it for later.
Keep your comments civil as these are my opinions. I'm not stating anything here for fact. I will respect your opinions if you respect mine.
