Rewind.....circa 2002....

Tell me something.....when did WWE decide to turn the clock back to 2002 by putting Cena, The Rock, and Brock Lesnar on the same show? Throw in Batista and Ric Flair and you'd have a perfect copy....sort of. The difference is that this is 2012. WWE is still PG. Was it nice to see Brock back? Absolutely. Will it be nice to see Batista? Sure, it will. But folks, the problem will remain the same. The rating of their show, the condition of their veterans, and the lack of devotion to their specialty divisions will still be waiting for them once the smoke clears. The glint and the glam of seeing pieces of a fallen era coming back into the limelight will fade, and when it does, the youngsters trying to catch a break in the business will still be fighting over scraps.

How many times must we go over this? Now,  Zack Ryder, Daniel Bryan, Dolph Ziggler, Kofi Kingston, and the rest of the undercard will stay right where they are. Why? Because the remnants from 10 years back are back to holding the reins. WWE has shifted from putting focus on the youth to pushing them back down the card. Face palm, people......face palm.

What do we want to see? Correct me if I'm wrong, but Brock Lesnar made a LIVING out of making people bleed. WWE is making a big deal out of NOT making people bleed. Conflict of interest? Just a little bit....One of the bloodiest duels I have ever seen involved Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker. You can bet there will be no repeat performance under the current rule of law.

You want my reaction to RAW? It was a mixed blessing....kinda like getting a bladder transplant from a bed wetter. You're thankful for something new, but you know it won't work quite like you're planning.
