Debut At SmackDown Tapings, Helms Not A Fan Of CM Drunk, More



– WWE.com takes a look back at the 10 best rookie years in WWE and WCW history. Brock Lesnar is ranked number one on this list, beating out Goldberg, Kurt Angle and The Undertaker, among others.

– Former WWE talent Shane “Hurricane” Helms is not a fan of WWE’s “CM Drunk” storyline. He wrote during Monday’s Raw SuperShow where Chris Jericho claimed CM Punk was spotted drinking alcohol before defending his title against Mark Henry: “I like both Punk and Jericho but I could care less about this “straight edge vs alcoholic” angle. Just wrestle.”

Helms also critiqued a WWE star’s bumping ability: “Otunga … geez. You’re on TV with the biggest wrestling company in the world. Please learn how to bump bro.”

– The dark match before this week’s WWE SmackDown tapings in London, England saw FCW star Antonio Cesaro defeat “The UK Kid” Thomas Jones. Cesaro cut a heel promo before the match. Jones was actually trained by WWE Hall of Famers Shawn Michaels and Dory Funk back in the late 1990′s.

– Jinder Mahal vs. Yoshi Tatsu, Eve vs. Kelly Kelly and R-Truth vs. Jack Swagger were taped in London for this week’s WWE Superstars.

– Matches taped in London for this week’s WWE NXT:

* Percy Watson vs. Johnny Curtis

* Kaitlyn vs. Maxine

* Tyler Reks vs. Curt Hawkins in a Loser Gets Fired Match
