On a different note I see that Bryan Daniel and Kane will challenge for the tag titles at NOC I like this match and think that if taken serious the Bryan/Kane team could be a boast for the tag division.

Given Linda Mcmahon is again running for congress this would be the stupidest angle WWE could ever pull. It has received major news coverage, if it later came out to be fake her career would be over. Plus Michael Cole isn't that good of an actor.

Cole on Fox http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_N8iGa3a2SQ

It's been confirmed by JR and Stacey Carter that he hasn't suffered any brain damage.

Can I just ask a question? What is the appeal of wrestling to an adult? I don't mean that in a condescending way, and I myself enjoy the theatricality of it all. But from what I've watched recently, is the appeal watching it as if you're watching a soap. Albeit one with fighting.

Also, AJ is rather lovely.

To keep my answer brief as really there are possibley a number of reasons, but I think part the appeal is that it can be a good way to unwind and take your mind off the dairy worries, you know vent your arger at ringside, and when Pro Wrestling works best it is an art form, to me yes there has always been a soap element to wrestling but it works best when it is kept about the wrestling, when the fans can believe in the talent and believe in their dispute.

Great segment this week with Jim Ross and C M Punk. And how great would it be if Paul Heyman was GM? Putting him with C M Punk is the best thing WWE has done in ages!

I feel a Damian Sandow fanfare should play out!

Thanks for restoring my faith in humanity!

I am meeting Robbies E and T tomorrow at TNAs London office - first time I get to meet some real ones.

Did CM Punk really hit a fan on Raw last night. Some are saying he's going to get sacked.

Hmm, I highly doubt it. If he did it will have been a plant from WWE, believe nothing, unless it's real obviously (e.g. the King.)

Am afraid he did, you can tell from Vince's reaction that it wasn't scripted.
There are plenty of reports saying how while Punk was amongst the fans, one fan kept pushing him and slapping him on the head, not surprising Punk got annoyed and can be seen several times asking the fans to stop, till he eventually snaps and hits someone. Unfortunetly for Punk and the WWE, it appears Punk attacked the wrong fan so can imagine it could be quite serious, depending on if the fan files a complaint

No chance of that happening, WWE cant afford to lose him.

We'll have to wait and see. After more research, the fan is supposedly proceeding with a lawsuit. WWE won't have a leg to stand on if Punk has hit the wrong guy, he may have been provoked but he can't just lash out at fans. He'll certainly lose the belt at HITC.

As I said above, I'll believe it when he's actually punished.

Oh i imagine its a given he will lose the belt now, either at HITC or even sooner, if i was WWE i be questioning where security was, as they would of been aware Punk was gonna go through the crowd so should of been in place to keep him protected from this

After the glowing reviews I had for last weeks podcast well one person anyway!), here are two more articles from this week:

Podcast special on Bound for glory - http://v2journal.com/bound-for-glory-v2-wrestling-podcast-special.html

And today, we met Robbie E and Robbie T. Here is the interview - http://v2journal.com/tna-robbie-e-and-robbie-t-interview.html

I would settle for 100% increase in Empire listeners (ie if two listen I will be happy!)

After seeing the footage captured on a mobile phone and how much Punk properly brayed the guy in the head, this ain't a work IMHO.

There's one word you've got to think of with anything WWE does at the minute - Linda.

She's gunning for office, there's no way on earth that they'd do a storyline about one of their employees attacking a fan during election season, it'd be political suicide. They need to be seen to punish him for what he did, which is a sad thing, as lets be honest, if he'd held the title for 6 more weeks that would be 1 year to the day, which is also the day I'd have predicted him dropping the belt, now I'd say he's dropping it at HIAC to..... Cena.......... ugh

I listened to some of the older ones too. But Braveheart really is a good interview. It seemed you caught him at the right time as he's in venting mode, but you let him get on with it and give him some nice prompting, like who are the a*holes in the business. Doesn't matter that he works for a small outfit, as the insights he gives on wrestling are really good.

Sadly I don't have time to follow WWE or TNA to really get the benefit from the podcasts. But I do try to watch as many of the TNA POVs as I can, though sadly usually a couple of months after they actually take place.

Cheers Prof.

This weeks Bound for Glory is my most anticipated PPV ever - I think that the 5 matches on the card so far have been built brilliantly - even the knockouts match!

AS for Punk.

Not a work in my opinion - he seemed genuinely pissed off and hit the wrong guy. Hopefully he wont be punished in story for it (I suspect a large fine though). As for RAw - what a terrible episode.

Little Jimmy dancing with Brodus because he has hit puberty?
An OAP holding his own against the world champ?
Larry King segment with the Miz?

Awful. YES. YES. YES it was

Nah its too soon to put the belt on Ryback I'd say - look at the reaction he got last night when he got his hands on Punk, if WWE plays this right then quite frankly the pay-off will be bigger than Goldberg/Hogan, I'd expect Punk picks Cena as he's "injured" "Punks already beat him so it'll be easy", Cena picks up a win the way he usually does, a couple of weeks later Punk wins the belt back, Ryback starts chasing him for the belt and again, played right this can go right through to Mania.

It appears the fan who started the whole thing, and not the one who actually got hit, has been bragging on Twitter how he hit Punk several times, for no reason. Now while he might of escaped cameras, security and Punk at the time, not sure posting to everyone around the world that it was you, is such a smart move

If Punk drops the belt, I can't see him getting it again anytime soon. Will this affect his upcoming feuds with the Rock and probably Austin? I hope not. WWE love to rush things, so I'd expect Ryback to have the belt sooner than later.
