ThunderStruck: WWE No Way Out 2012 Reaction

Brodus Clay beat Otunga by countout. I didn’t watch the match. I wasn’t expecting a lot from it. I like Brodus’ character overall, but I want to see the guy really wrestle. Sheamus defeated Dolph Ziggler. I said this match would be awesome, and it was. It was the perfect way to open the show. The chemistry between these two was great, and the match had a solid flow throughout. Sheamus retains to keep his run going and I like the booking behind it. Santino beat Ricardo in the tuxedoRead More

- Rory McAllister, who appeared for WWE from 2006 to 2008 as a member of The Highlanders, was asked via Twitter about WWE ‘criminally’ disregarding Drew McIntyre. He responded, “Drew has all the tools to be a player but has to grow a set and not be “happy to have a job.” He’s better than that!” The WWE Superstar who Vince McMahon predicted would be a ‘future World Champion’ has languished since being drafted to the Raw brand in April 2011.

When asked why the “Macho Man” isn’t in the Hall, he responded, “Are you telling me that the WWE hadn’t made an overture to Randy about being in the Hall of Fame? That’s BS.
