It is really good but for me, the main reason I bought it was for the updated C-Verse database. It's only $40 bucks.

Did many here watch Wrestle Mania? I really enjoyed Punk/Takerand there rest of the matches were pretty good. I thought Rock/Cena was worse than their first match, too many finishers.

Taker/Punk was so friggin good. They actually had you beliving Punk was going to end the streak.

Cena/Rock i thought was ok as well, too many finishers but i thought it worked and they had the crowd by the end with all the near falls. Also played off last years match really well i though.

Lesnar/HHH was ok but i have a lot of respect for them because walking out HHH got 2nd degree burns from the dry ice and Lesnar was knocked loopy within the first 2 minutes.

Not much on the undercard because they werent given much time. But i thought Jericho carried Fandango to a good match and The Shield looked impressive, those three guys are so good together,.

As a spectacle though Raw knocked it out of the water. The crowd was hot all night with some fantastic chants and their was way more storyline development (Which i wont give away if you havent seen Raw)

Jericho lost to try and create a new star in Fandango. Y2J is touring again so it made sense to put him over.

Barrett and Miz were on the pre show because it was probably the least built match on the show and they wanted to switch the title in the pre show.

I thought Punk was going to end the streak, one of the few times I actually thought it could happen.

fresh air really? there starting to get stale.

They need to lose and build a decent feud. To me the shield is a slightly better version of the nexus.

The Aces and Eights on TNA are 10 times better then the Shield.

Bully Ray is the only good thing about Aces and 8s. The rest of the guys are pretty much worthless in the way they are booked

Shield dont lose because they are being built as top guys, you dont beat top guys if you want them to look good.

On Aces and Eights Devon has talent, Anderson is a solid worker of the mic.

I want more Abyss.

on the Shield.

Ambrose has a bit of a stutter and tries hard to cover in promos he cuts.

Rolins and Reins need to take a shower, Reins cant string more then 5 words together. That's why he just shouts believe in the shield and reins only says one line and hands the mic over.

There is far better talent on the roster that deserves a better push then those 3 clowns.

Barrett should be World Heavyweight champion by now.

I dont think so although he did go to hospital because of concussion.

The late money with the bookies who let you bet on wrestling in the last few minutes went with Lesnar and he went from 40/1 to slight favourite. The last hour or so is when the WWE staff bet on it once the script is finished.
