The "Yes" chant is the best thing they've given fans in a very long time.

I don't know how they haven't given Daniel Bryan a long title run yet. I haven't heard chants like that since the Attitude Era.

They probably think the yes chant is more over than him. But as we can see it's not.

Pro wrestling is very much a business run on whims and politics. As long as there's a top guy in place like Cena, there isn't a huge concern to fill up the rest of the card with quality, just to look for what catches on with the kids.

Can you imagine a long feud with Punk and Bryan just both being shades of gray. They're both great wrestlers and very much over. It could be a throwback to some of the old rivalries.

Mae Young entertained us in more ways than any female wrestler before or since ever could. Some said the schtick she used as a horny old lady between 1999-2010 was exploitative and wrong, but she was responsible for some of the funniest moments on the program for a long time. That she was willing to let Bubba Ray Dudley powerbomb her OFF the entranceway and THROUGH a damn table in her late 70s makes her the most extreme Diva there ever will be, in my books.

Here's a little celebration they had for her on last year's Old School Raw. Very fitting.

Hard to link stuff from mobile but it's being reported that Punk was just removed from all shows moving forward. Some people saying injuries etc. others in the biz are saying they expected him not to sign back, pretty crazy if he just drops.

I was watching a few interviews with Punk recently, and it seemed like he lost his passion for the business, seemed like he just wasn't happy.

I could understand him being semi-upset but still okay with guys like The Rock coming back to main even even if they were part timers... But Batista that must have been the straw that broke the camels back, he wasn't even considered top card talent when he was in, he never got the roars of the crowd, what he has is some C- grade movies and now he's main eventing wrestlemania. I don't blame Punk...
Maybe he thinks if he goes part timer he might main event
