    I think it is cool I like those it shines like velvet leather and really really amazing. I wish the Miz and the freak Alex Riley should shut up. Who cares about Daniel Bryan he’s back now just ignore him. He is special. I hope the GM straighten him out. Because tomorrow night was a Double elimination and I hope Alex Riley will be one of them.

    The new tag belts look like big pennies.

    Cena is Good for Business, when you run a PG show you cater to your audience.

    Daniel Bryan getting fired was a big work, deal with it. How many superstars that get fired are mentioned as much as he was after they are fired?

    If no Alcohol, Drugs, or sex makes everyone act like a complete douchebag then you can keep your Straight Edge lifestyle.

    There, I got that off my chest…you may carry on
