Same. At least when outside of that time he would stop harping about his destiny. He doesn't deliver a mean promo, but at least he's something of a character.

Ex-WWE Diva Tammy Sytch ARREST #5

Posted Image

Stop us if you've heard this one before ... former WWE diva Tammy Sytch was just arrested in Connecticut ... her 5th arrest in 4 weeks.

Law enforcement tells us ... Tammy -- who wrestled under the name Sunny -- was popped in Branford this afternoon ... hours after she was released from jail on Arrest #4.

This time, Tammy was busted for 3rd degree burglary and 3 counts of violating a protective order.

We broke the story, Sytch was also arrested yesterday for violating a protective order when she was found passed out in the home of her ex-BF.

Tammy had also been arrested 3 times in 3 days back in September under similar circumstances.

Tammy is currently being held without bond and is expected to see a judge in the morning ... who will probably release her so she can get arrested again.

Might as well go for the double hat trick at this point.

I like ADR. He can be at times dull/boring but like someone said above, at least he's a "character" and pretty good in the ring.


--


Thought this Raw was above average, really enjoyed the parts with Vince and Punk (funny that Vince is taking the "ratings situation" into his own hands).


--


It looked like for a long time that they were going to take the classic slow-build approach with Ryback but once again it seems they are losing patience because of the lack of top level talent and shooting him up the card. A Punk/Ryback main event at a PPV right now seems pretty lame; would much rather have Cena in there, as much as it pains me to say it.


--


Can Ziggler please get a new finisher? The Zig-Zag... basically pulling the guy to the ground by his head... is just awful. The Fame-Asser he does is much better but it's more like his set-up move (and notice they don't really call it anything lol).

By the way learn how to spell SHIRIKOV who is this shirakov


Amazingly on his first shift Kassian would have had a breakaway if Kesler knew how to pass. And he still got switched with Weiss. And note it is "Weiss" not "Wise".

Agreed. I think a Punk/Heyman vs. McMahon angle would be interesting. Bring Stone Cold into it and they could create some entertaining story lines.

CM Punk isn't doing it for me. He's not a good face and he's not an elite heel.

We all know that he isn't going to lose clean at HIAC, just waiting for someone else to run with the belt.

Curious as to how much the ratings would suck without Cena for more than a month

He may be, but he isn't in the same league as Generico, Strong, Aries, Richards or Perkins. Watch indy wrestling, educate yourselves.

Still was never the best. He's been top 5 his whole career at best. That is still really amazing considering the crazy amount of talent that was on the indy scene when he wrestled.

Punk is an awesome heel. It's just a shame he has to come out and say the same stuff every week. It's not like he has a choice. Also, I for one am getting pretty bored of the Kane/Bryan tag team. Same sh*t, different day.

Well, the "best in the world" thing is just a gimmick after all. ;)

He did steal it from Bryan Danielson, who did it much better than he's doing it now...

You need to take off the CM Punk goggles and look at it from a neutral perspective.

Punk is a good heel he's not elite or even great. It's not hard to go into Montreal, insult Bret Hart and get heat. Sin Cara could do that. Nor is kicking out JR on his appreciation night anything special, he's gathering momentum as a heel from doing everything generically.

People like JBL and Jericho didn't need to do anything, Muhammed Hussan as well if you remember him. Those guys had that arrogance and swagger on them that made you hate their guts, AKA played their role to perfection. Punk hasn't done that.

IMO the hardest thing to do is stay fresh as a face. Orton couldn't do it, Sheamus isn't doing it, and while Punk had a decent run as a face, but unless you blindly support him as much as you hate Cena, you'd notice his act was wearing thin as a face as well.

When Punk was at his best was at about a year ago, when he wasn't a heel, and he wasn't a face. He was CM Punk, he was the guy who didn't give a damn and you loved him for it. Now that Vince is trying to force feed him to us he's lost that.

----------

Note that I am not critiqueing him as a wrestler, but as a performer which is what WWE is, Entertainment.

CM Punk's strength is definitely as a heel though. His promos were borrrrrrring as a face. They're starting to get dull now too, but it was extremely annoying when he would tell Bryan to be quiet and the crowd would go nuts. He actually was technically a heel back then, but his promo got him over with a lot of the fans.
