    Plus you have to factor in the "ravenous Rock-starved audience" who have had all this time to salivate over his occasional appearances. Like, steak is delicious but everyday? Gets boring and starts tasting bland. You start dreaming about tacos for weeks and weeks and weeks and they're SO awesome when you get them - at first. But it makes you appreciate the steak again.

Rocky might not be as clever or honest on the stick as Punk but he does what he does just as well, two means to the same end I guess
    I'm not denying that Rocky is great at what he does; I'm just coming from the perspective of no longer having a use for what he's bringing to the table. Such incredible familiarity with his routine is starting to breed contempt- it doesn't help that he seemingly can't be bothered to ever add any new wrinkles to it- and I'd honestly be content to just not hear it any more. I guess I'm just not one of those guys from the school of "more = better". It's just more. And I'm personally a tad filled up.

    Of course, I realize I'm in the minority here, and that's perfectly fine. I kind of get the same way with when Stone Cold comes back and does his greatest hits, and I know that vantage point's not going to be particularly popular with folks. It's whatevs.

    Del Rio as a face isn't bad. Not the best way to open the 20th Annyversary episode with the Big Show, though.

    Wade Barrett won, so that counts one for the heels.

    Orton loses clean at the mid card level on RAW. I guess he really is out of the number 2 spot.
