The above “Occupy RAW” segment from Monday’s WWE RAW, will be looked back at years from now as the pivotal point to the start of the Daniel Bryan Era in the WWE. Whether WWE planned this storyline, or if they were forced to make “creative changes” because of the negative feedback from the fans, the payoff at WrestleMania XXX will be epic.

The Authority - Triple H & Stephanie McMahon

FATP: Out With The Old, In With The New

If you follow me on Twitter, you’ll know that I’ve not watched any current wrestling (from either WWE or TNA) for the last 3 weeks because I’m incredibly frustrated with the product at the moment.

However, it makes me feel better when I listen to guys like Dave Meltzer, Jason Powell and Wade KellerRead More
