Well, I'm back from 3 major surgeries. I'd may as well comment on what happened on NXT/Smackdown now that my TiVo decided to play nice:
-Miz vs CJ Parker: in my eyes, this match was a huge test for Parker from the authority. If he could pair well with the miz, then it'd prove that he at least had some use outside of the Breeze feud. Instead, Parker looked slow and clumsy and the Miz looked like a million bucks. Goodbye moonchild, we hardly knew or cared about ye.
-Bayley vs Sasha Banks: enough is enough! I get that with Emma being promoted to the big leagues, NXT lost their best female asset, but is bayley really their replacement for her? Much like the other weeks, bayley had a match vs a "bully diva" and much like the other weeks, I was thoroughly unimpressed. When paige gets promoted to the main roster, I'll probably stop watching the NXT divas division altogether.
-Wyatts vs Shield: yet another obvious match with an obvious outcome, sparked up by the loss of Punk. Wyatts will win, shield will lose/"fracture", and we'll see a triple threat match with the winner facing triple H at WM.
-PtP split: it's sad how not only can I find another tag-team that's broken up in this fashion, but that I can find multiple similar tag teams of similar "set-ups" broken up in this incredibly dull way over the past 5 years. Much like the Kozlov/Marella, Cryme Tyme, Jeri-show, and about 8 of Kane's tag teams of the past, this one dissolved at a time in which the audience's interest for them was at an all-time low. Expect Titus to be a jobber to guys like Kofi/Big-E (much like how kozlov/shad were used) before being released in about 3-4months. Darren Young has a niche of being a gay, black, and arguably funnier Cena look-a-like. Expect him to be gone from this business in march.
-the Chamber Match: yet another upcoming disappointment, that'll probably stop me from watching the PPV. Cena/Bryan are in because the corporation blatently wants them in (Triple H proclaiming on smackdown that it's "what the audience will pay to watch), sheamus and christian are in because apparently it's never too late to milk guys whose careers are pretty much dead barring a miracle, Orton's in because WWE knows that you can't satisfy everyone so it's just easier to bore them into a coma, and Antonio Cesaro is this year's Dark Horse, getting a minor bump which'll help put him into an eventual feud with Kofi for the US title. Oh, and expect Brock to heavily interfere with this match to the point of him getting a shot at the undertaker's WM streak. That's one of the few ways I can see this logically satisfying all the storylines.
