Scott Hall's story just keeps getting sadder....a donation page so he can afford hip replacement surgery:
http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/we-can-rebuild-him

Unfortunately, we didn't know just how broken Scott's body was. At the young age of 54, Scott has had a pacemaker, and difibrillator implanted for his heart, and he can barely walk due to extreme arthritis in his hip. Unless he gets a hip replacement, he will be unable to do the necessary exercise in order to get his health back. Without medical insurance, Scott's inability to pay for the procedures he needs are a major hurdle to his physical recovery.

figure if his friends believe that this treatment DDP is giving him is working, and I really hope it does continue to work, that they would be about to take a big chunk out of that 80k, HHH or WWE alone can pay for most of it

Just watched Smackdown...

Brad Maddox was on commentary and it was amazing and hilarious. I barely remember any of the Ryback/Sandow match because the commentary was so good. Get Maddox on Raw instead of Jerry Lawler!

Speaking of Ryback, they are teasing a Wrestlemania match between him and Mark Henry, which could be glorious destruction.

Much to my delight they are continuing to develop the Kaitlyn/Cody Rhodes romance, and the back-stage segment with Cody and Damien discussing her was great.

Alberto Del Rio and Ricardo Rodriguez's parody of Swagger and Zeb was pretty funny, I especially liked Ricardo trying to eat his own stomach.

ADR's match with Ziggler was only OK, they had to go through a lot of shenanigans with AJ, Big E and Ricardo on the outside, which, whilst enjoyable, meant the match took 5 minutes to get going. I suppose it was necessary to explain why Dolph doesn't cash in.

The back-stage segment between AJ and Daniel Bryan was very interesting, both because it actually used continuity, and also for what it promises for the future. Could Daniel Bryan be Dolph's first feud when he becomes Champ?

Team Hell No beat 3MB in a fun match, it was interesting to see commentary actually sort of big up 3MB, mentioning their past title reigns, rather than treat them like a joke.

Fan... Dan... Go... is still funny to me, but I don't know how much longer he can go by not wrestling.

The Big Show/Sheamus thing was decent, a bit repetitive of last week with The Shield running in, but before that, it was a very good match. I do like how they are positioning Big Show here, he's fighting The Shield, but he's still a heel and he still hates Sheamus and Orton. This should make for an intriguing match at Wrestlemania where the WWE team can't trust each other.

I'm really enjoying SmackDown right now, if only it spent more time focusing on itself, and less time recapping Raw.

Also, Brad Maddox looking off camera and saying "No... no autographs" whilst Cole was trying to set up the next segment had me in stitches.

Yeah, Smackdown probably is better. It's shorter, JBL and Josh Matthews are much better on commentary than Cole and Lawler, there's less shilling for the App and Tout and Twitter, and you pretty much get to see Alberto Del Rio, Sheamus and Ziggler wrestle every week.

There are too many recaps, but I fast-forward through most of them (all of them this week except the CM Punk/Undertaker one).

To be fair, I did miss Raw this week, but it feels like Smackdown needs recaps on Raw, more than Raw needs recaps on Smackdown, if they ever want SD to have relevance again.

It used to be required viewing to watch both, but now I know a load of people who just skip it.

Was that back when they treated Raw and Smackdown like separate companies? Maybe they should do something like that, where the only place you can see the action around the World Heavyweight Championship is Smackdown.

Also, I imagine if CM Punk or John Cena appeared on Smackdown more regularly, people would pay more attention to it.

Well, that was the reasoning behind moving Sheamus and Orton there, but if you can see them on Raw as well, what's the point of watching SmackDown. I think it was around 03 when you had the famous SmackDown six. Angle, Edge, Rey, Benoit, Eddie and Chavo, all at the top of their game.

I also really enjoyed 09 when you had Punk v Hardy, and Mysterio v Jericho at the same time, the two best feuds of that year. You also had John Morrison getting legitimate wins over both Punk and Hardy and looking like a genuine peer. Then Hardy left the company, Punk got decimated by Taker for dress code violations, and Morrison moved to Raw and never got anywhere near the top again.

Apparently TNA let Bobby Roode's contract run out and didn't realise... he may not be at Lockdown tonight.

Fucking hell TNA!

The rumour at the time was that Taker was really unhappy that CM Punk didn't dress like a champion, and CM Punk didn't really care what Taker thought.

This is the kind of story that really bugs me. What does that really mean? How can a guy who regularly dresses like the Undertaker go around saying what is or is not appropriate for other wrestlers to wear? What's wrong with the way CM Punk dresses? :smt102
